Fandom: Stargate SG-1/MCU, can be read as pure MCU (Captain America) since the character that connects the story with SG-1 is an OC.
Characters/Pairings: Howard Stark/OMC
Rating & Warnings: rated R, takes place in 1951-52 and includes two OCs and some era-appropriate homophobia and misogyny. It’s mostly canon-compliant for both universes, and, therefore, the ending is not entirely happily-ever-after for the characters.
Word count: 8k so far, still a bit of a WIP
Beta type: grammar, punctuation, proper use of idioms and collocations, any other advice (on plot, style, documentary facts, anything else) is also welcome. I’m in need of some cheerleading, too, I’m a little stuck on a couple of scenes.
Notes: I have a whole series of SG-1/MCU crossover fics, this one is supposed to provide a backstory, but right now can stand alone.
This is one of my first long fics ever I especially need a beta this time. I’m going to need someone to beta the rest of the series, too, but writing it is going to take time, so right now I’m only looking for someone to read this one Howard-centric fic for me.

Hello! I've caught up on tags again to prepare for the new year.

Another reminder that I won't add a tag for a specific fandom until at least two different people post about that fandom on the comm. If you don't see your fandom in the tag list, you're proably looking for a catch-all tag:
  • fandom: tv shows (other)
  • fandom: movies (other)
  • fandom: books (other)
  • fandom: video games (other)
  • fandom: webcomics (other)
  • fandom: web series (other)
  • fandom: animanga series
I regularly go through the catch-all tags to see if there are any doubles that need to be moved to a tag of their own. If you want to get your own fandom tag faster, encourage your friends to use this comm too! :D

I've also added the new tag "fandom: star trek (reboot)", to try and differentiate the newer movies from the older tv series and movies. We've not yet had more than one person asking for betas in each individual star trek series, which is why they're still using the catch-all "fandom: star trek series."

If there's anything else I can do to make the comm's tag system easier to use, please let me know. Thank you for using [community profile] betaplease and happy new year! Please remember to tag your posts!

Hi! I'm a 10 year veteran of the USAF as well as a new-minted MD. I can't really do traditional beta work like proofreading, story arc, characterization, etc due to both time limitations and excessive neuroticism. I'd be happy to explain how things might actually work in either military or medical settings, and would also be glad to help come up with macguffins in either.

I could obviously do this for any fandom, but those I'm personally familiar with include:
Due South, Harry Potter, both Stargate SG-1 and Atlantis, Avengers and related movies, Supernatural, all variations of Sherlock Holmes.

I've been lurking in fandom for over ten years now (longer than I've been in the service by a few) and it has just now occurred to me how I can contribute. Sorry for being so oblivious, fandom!

Fandom: Stargate: Universe/general Stargate
Characters/Pairings: Eli Wallace, Daniel Jackson, Chloe Armstrong
Rating & Warnings: genfic, no ships, set after the final ep of SGU (so, spoilers!!)
Notes: Just a short piece for smallfandomfest over on LJ. I never beta my work because hardly anyone writes for my fandoms, but I figure it's worth a try, right? This particular fic is SGU and Eli-centric, but it's very in time with the SG franchise as a whole. Daniel appears quite a lot in this fic, as a hallucination. You don't need to know the fandom, although that would be lovely :)

I basically would like someone to look for:

a) language (I'm British, and I've tried to use Americanisms where I know them, but I'm worried I've missed something)
b) general story flow
c) science (or lack of) and general trueness to the Stargate canon (I'm pretty terrible at science, and I want to be sure that the things Daniel is saying are Real Science Things that he might say/do)

Thanks in advance! :D

Howdy, ya'alls! I'm in need for a bit of a polish for a relatively short (1200 words) ficlet. Its GEN teamfic with what hopefully is a little zazzle and wit. I am looking for a quick turnover for this particular fic (though not necessarily betas in the future)

Fandom: Stargate SG-1
Characters/Pairings: Gen TeamFic featuring original SG-1 & Hammond.
Rating & Warnings: T for snarkiness.
Notes: ficlet awesomeness (see above)

Fandom: Stargate: Atlantis (crossing over with Stargate SG1 on a semi-regular basis and, on occasion, with Supernatural, Doctor Who and possibly Andromeda)

Characters/Pairings: John Sheppard/OFC, Rodney McKay/OFC(same one), eventually Rodney/Elizabeth, and lots and lots of other combinations of characters from the shows and OC

Rating & Warnings: Probably an R eventually, much milder at the moment, though. As the romance part of the fic gets more interesting, there will be some sex, for now, all you have to worry about is the fighting and unconvincing medical problems. There's a rather unbalanced amount of drama and crack in this fic.

Notes: This story is a collaboration between myself and a friend whom I shall refer to as the slave-driving, grammar Nazi Dominatrix (SDGND for short). English is not my first language and neither is it SDGND's and, accordingly, we've been accused of not sounding like native speakers - we need someone to spot the glaring inconsistencies in vocabulary.  While SDGND is obsessed with getting every single detail right, she tends to obsess over this story far more than is healthy and misses most of the small stuff (like typos) - we need someone to catch typos as well. This is a rather long story (~100.000 words so far) and we've started re-writing it (blame SDGND, it's more her baby than mine, I just do the writing) - we need someone to check for plot inconsistencies, if possible.

So far, we have 9 chapters written, 7 of which have been posted online, un-betad, before we started rewriting. You can go here for more details on the fic and for links on where to find what we've posted so far. Chapter one has already been edited and re-written a total of 6 times (the current version hasn't been posted yet, what you'll find online is version 4, I think).

If there are any brave (or suicidal) souls out there willing to give this a shot, you will have our eternal gratitude.
