Fandom: Girl Meets World
Rating: Typically, I’m writing between T-M rated content.
Spoilers/Time Line: None. My writing is usually AU, PU, or future set. However, I can think of one spoiler for sure; don’t know if I’ll mention it though.  
Pairing: Rilaya (Riley/Maya)
Beta Type: SPaG, content, plot/idea help.  
Warnings: The story I’m planning at this point does not deal with any triggers. However, it does feature a same-sex female pairing. Cursing will take place, but not heavily. No offensive remarks or any other offending material is planned or expected to happen.    
Harshness: On a scale of 1-10, I’m ideally looking for a 6. Basically, just be respectful and explain any edits/suggestions. My writing is very important to me and I don’t take well to receiving it back covered in red ink. You need to strongly back-up your suggestions (besides technical ones) in order for me to not become offended. Telling me to remove, reword, or that something doesn’t make sense without the explanation really doesn’t help me at all. I want to grow, not shirk.     
Other: Okay, I have a few things for this section…

I’ve had one heck of a time trying to find a beta in this fandom and that screws me over for several reasons. You do not have to be in the fandom or even watch the show to help. Like mentioned, my stores are not set within canon world or timeline. Anyone with a critical eye and passion to help can do this job.

I’d really like to find someone who’s in a time zone that’s friendly to mine. Would love to have a partnership with said person and feel comfortable enough to share plot ideas and grow stories from them. An individual with the time needed to provide beta services is very important and required.  

If you're curiously about my writing style, length, or whatever...

hagar_972: A woman with her hands on her hips, considering a mechanic's shop. (Default)
[personal profile] hagar_972
Fandom: Shadowhunters (TV)
Characters/Pairings: Alec/Magnus and Alec & Jace (i.e. platonic) with assorted minor friendships
Rating & Warnings: Rated T. Canon-typical content, with Talking About Emotions (so assorted mental health potential triggers).
Estimated Fic Length: 20-40k words, with individual chapters at 4-6k.
Notes: Needs beta for typo-hunting and sp&g screen. I'm an ESL speaker who usually passes for native and plays around with syntax a lot, so comfort with long sentences and an ability to discern between "non-grammatical", "difficult to understand" and "stylistically unfavored" are necessary. For recent examples of what my writing looks like, see [archiveofourown.org profile] Hagar. (Specifically, the work for which I'm beta-seeking is sequel to The Woods.)
noxcaelum: Space, the final frontier (Default)
[personal profile] noxcaelum
Fandom: Arrowverse (all of it)
Characters/Pairings: All of them. Pairings are all canon.
Rating & Warnings: Unknown at this time, unlikely to be NC-17 but very likely to be R.
Estimated Fic Length: Unknown at this time; chapter one is complete and almost 4,500 words.
Beta type: Looking for grammar, spelling, style, sentence structure, does it make sense.
Harshness: I'm not looking for someone to say "OMGs this is so awesome there's absolutely NOTHING wrong with it!" but I want criticism to be constructive. I want to know what's wrong with it so I can fix it. I may not take all suggestions, but I definitely want to hear them.
Notes: This is an ongoing, multi-part, multi-chapter project so a long-term beta who is dedicated to the work is required. Someone who has seen all of the current episodes of the four major DCTV shows (Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and The Flash). Someone who is pissed off about certain aspects of how The Flash season 3 storyline was handled and would like to see it all rectified. >.> This fic is not for any kind of challenge or fest, it's a labor of love (but also burning need to set things right).
fall_into_your_sunlight: Cassandra, Ezekiel, Jake (The Librarians)
[personal profile] fall_into_your_sunlight
Fandom: The Librarians
Characters/Pairings: Ezekiel/Jake
Rating & Warnings: PG, off page oc character death
Estimated Fic Length: 1,251
Notes: This story is for the Librarians shipathon on tumblr.  Jake/Ezekiel week is July 29-August 5 so I would need it before then.  I mostly need grammar help so I don't believe intimate knowledge about the show is necessary. 


Thank you!

[personal profile] dunderklumpen
Fandom: Teen Wolf, The Flash, iZombie, Harry Potter
Characters/Pairings: Derek/Allison, Stiles/Derek, Cahrlie/Neville, Liv
Rating & Warnings: Everything is G right now.
Notes: I need mostly help with SPaG and phrasing.
So there are wo comment fic fests going on. They look like tons of fun and although I've a bit of writer's block right now I think I can manage a couple of short pieces. I've written 4 by now, all of them around 200 words. They are short and sweet and hopefully won't be too much work but because I'm no native speaker I would feel better if someone could take a quick look before I post them. There's nothing worse than a short text riddled with mistakes.
I plan to write a bit more for both fests. So if a potential beta would be up to look over some more short comment fics (probably about 5-10) that would be great. Although right now I need help with the 4 short comment ficlets I already have.
I don't mind a harsh beta if it's constructive criticism.

1. Pen Name: QueencestQueen
2. Fandom: ARROW (but it’s also a fusion with Spartacus)
3. Rating of the story: NC-17
4. Spoilers/Time Line: There’s probably spoilers in regards to the Spartacus timeline, but there shouldn’t be any spoilers for ARROW.
5. Pairing: Oliver Queen/Thea Merlyn & several side pairings.
6. Beta Type: Primarily I need a beta with expertise in or knowledge of Ancient Rome, to make sure that my story isn’t off in accuracy, but I can always use the typical spelling, plot, and grammar as well. 
7. Harshness: I have no opinion on this matter.
8. Other:
  • In this tale, Oliver and Thea are NOT related.
  • I need a beta who will stick with me for the entire length of the story as it is a work in a progress.
  • I don’t know how long the entire story will be yet, but the first chapter is approximately 8,500 words in length.

Rating & Warnings: Explicit sex, dubcon, abuse of power, masochism and humiliation
Notes: It's a ~5000 word PWP with very explicit sex, so please be over 18

Hey there, I managed to finish my first English language fic today and I'm looking for a native English speaker to give it a look before I embarrass myself.

If you happen to be familiar with the show I'll gladly accept criticism on characterization and any concrit you might have is appreciated but since I'm ESL I'm mainly looking for feedback a la "That word doesn't mean what you think it means", "That word belongs at the end of the sentence" or even "I can't exactly tell why, but that sentence just sounds really weird to me."

Hi everyone!

I am looking for an experienced beta reader with a deep knowledge of B5 canon (or who is willing to learn!) to help me with a project I am working on. I am a professional editor and experienced writer, so I really don’t need much help with grammar/spelling/punctuation, and I already have several internet and RL friends who can read for pacing, development of suspense, and the like. What I need is someone with a passion for the subject matter, who can help both with canon research (this work is NOT AU and is meticulously canon consistent), and with larger, more “big picture” development of the project, as well as working with me to help ensure that different subsections work together smoothly and form a coherent whole.

I have been working on this project, in one form or another, nearly daily for over two years, in between my “real life” professional commitments. I take this project very seriously and am looking for betas who can work with that level of dedication and persistence! :-)

Project description:

In Book 3 of the Psi Corps Trilogy (Final Reckoning), Bester reflects, as he thinks about what book he might write, “It wasn’t his story he wanted to tell, but the story of his people. Of all his people, even those who had betrayed him, or worse, their own kind.”

This is, in essence, that book, though it comes about in a somewhat different way. In the aftermath of the Telepath War (known in the community as the Crisis), the main character (herself a telepath) is collecting a series of stories from other telepaths, chronicling through their varied personal narratives the collective history of her people. Her work aims to preserve these stories for future generations, who don’t (directly) remember life before the war, so they can find answers to the questions they will ask themselves one day when they grow up: who are we? who were we? and what happened to us?

This is a project that aims to fundamentally reframe and refocus canon: not to parrot the same old normal-centered narratives “about” telepaths, but to present telepaths’ narratives of their own lives (especially the perspective of telepaths in Psi Corps, whose perspective is even more invalidated by canon’s bias). This project centers the perspectives of this marginalized, insular and culturally distinct (though itself quite heterogeneous) telepath community, thereby challenging and even subverting the limited presentation given in canon.

It is, in a nutshell, the “other side of the story,” the side canon never told you.

Individual sub-fics (all of which stand alone) take place in different times and cover different subjects, so if something is a trigger for you, it is still possible to help out with the project, in other areas.

Interested betas are welcome to contact me here or at tesseract at operamail dot com. If you have any questions, I’ll be happy to answer them for you. Please also feel free to pass this along to anyone you may know who may be interested in my work, or in helping out.

Thank you!

Characters/Pairings: Emma/Regina
Rating & Warnings: PG-13ish

Looking for someone to point out any wording/actions that are unclear, anything that seems OOC, and any boring bits.

5. Spoilers/Time Line: 2013 Canon events
6. Pairing: character!Jon Stewart/character!Stephen Colbert

7. Beta Type: Spelling & Grammar, American-picking. I have a big problem with punctuation, so I need someone who really knows their grammar. I also need someone to check my dialogue and see if it really is how a US American would phrase things.

8. Harshness: Please, be as harsh as you like.

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!

Fandom: Andromeda
Characters/Pairings: its AU setting set shortly after the events of the 3rd season episode "The Unconquerable Man" featuring Gaheris Rahde, Beka Valentine, Rommie and Seamus Harper
Rating & Warnings: Probably no more than PG 13, shading into R. It for Round 3 of the mulitfandom Journey Story 3.0 Big Bang and clocks in at just over 10k.
Notes: Looking for basic mechanics, verb tense agreement, spelling, grammar, story flow, continuity. The draft is due to the mod for the purposes of artist claiming by the 2nd of November, but the final thing isn't due until early January. I use Libreoffice, which is as close as I can get to MS office, but it's a docx file format. Just a heads up.

note to Mod: I think I need a fandom tag for Andromeda.

Thanks and take care, karrenia

[personal profile] iwasanartist
Fandom: Castle
Characters/Pairings: Ryan/Esposito, mentions previous Jenny/Ryan
Rating & Warnings: NC-17/Explicit, possibly mild dubcon, shooting aftermath.

Notes: The basic premise is that while things were still all crazy from the season 4 fallout between Ryan and Esposito, Ryan is very nearly killed, which prompts Esposito to re-evaluate their history -- and their future. (And if you're not that familiar with the canon fallout, I think I do a pretty good job of providing enough context.)

I do my best to paint Ryan as bi and knowing it from the start (though closeted to most people), because I don't want to erase his canon history with Jenny, but I also clearly have to diverge from it. Esposito...takes a bit of a journey when it comes to sexual identity, and the fic is really more his story than anything. He just strikes me as the sort who would see himself as super-straight. And when he starts hooking up with Ryan, it's something that he's really selfish about, because he doesn't want to think of himself as anything other than a straight dude -- and really, doesn't want to think about it at all.

But then, as he's forced to confront all these things he's tried to ignore, his perception of who he is and what they mean to each other begins to shift.

I've posted restricted chapters to my journal and screened comments, so if you would like to beta this fic, comment here and I'll grant you access.
mandygirl78: (Default)
[personal profile] mandygirl78
Fandom: Facts of Life
Characters/Pairings: Jo/Blair, Cindy/Sue Ann
Rating & Warnings: PG-13. Femslash, Mild Language
Notes:

Hi, I'm looking for a beta-reader to review my Facts of Life story I am currently writing. It's called "Body Language" and it's based on the first season of FoL, so no Jo/Blair but instead Cindy/Sue Ann. I already have it up on FF.net and currently chapter 24 is up. I had someone beta-read it up to chapter 14, so I'm looking for someone to beta-read it from chapter 15 on.

Main priority would be grammar and punctuation, and in addition story flow and characterization. Knowledge of late-70s/early-80s pop culture is helpful, but not necessary.

I also have another FoL fan-fic going on called "Wedding Bells Are Ringing". This one take place in 2011, and it's Jo/Blair along with Cindy/Sue Ann. The needs are the same as for "Body Language", but it's not my main fanfic right now.

[personal profile] mandygirl78
Fandom: Once and Again
Characters/Pairings: Jessie Sammler/Katie Singer
Rating & Warnings: PG-13 (possibly M). Femslash, Mild Language, Violence, Possible Sex Scenes
Notes:

I am doing a Once and Again fanfic called Deja Vu. Part of it is also based on the late-70s/early-80s time period, so knowledge of that era is a BIG PLUS. Five chapters are already done and the main things are grammar, punctuation, story flow, and characterization.

I am also doing an another Once and Again fanfic called Way out West. This one takes place during the Wild West, but it's a crack fic, and basically the exact opposite of Deja Vu. Two chapters are done already and I'm looking to get out of my writer's block for this story.
lilly_c: (Default)
[personal profile] lilly_c
Fandom: Taggart

Characters/Pairings: Robbie, Jackie, Matt, Duncan, Mita, Karen and Stuart; with Robbie/Jackie ship

Rating & Warnings: NC-17. Historical domestic violence, historical child abuse, murder, sex and suicide

Notes: It's set post series with references to several earlier eps and the first draft is finished and around 13k, there is 10 chapters + prologue/epilogue. I need any repetition pointing out as well as odd looking sentence and paragraph structures, some SPAG too. I also need to know that the story and timeline(s) make sense too. As the fandom is tiny I'm not expecting canon knowledge but I do know enough to answer any questions that might crop up.

[personal profile] johngreen
Fandom: Pitch Perfect
Characters/Pairings: Chloe/Beca, Fat Amy/Bumper
Rating & Warnings: R-ish. Inappropriate humor is the only real warning.
Notes: I'm writing this as a fill for trope_bingo. It's a stripper!au (if you squint). I've been out of the writing game for some time, so I'm not only looking for someone to clear up any grammatical snafus, but also give solid concrit on writing style.
sashataakheru: (Skyline Brum)
[personal profile] sashataakheru
Fandoms: The Move RPS/Brum (1992)
Cast: Brum, werewolf!Carl Wayne, seer!Roy Wood, werewolf!FtM!Bev Bevan, werewolf!Ace Kefford, Trevor Burton
Pairings: Roy Wood/Trevor Burton, Carl Wayne/Bev Bevan, Bev Bevan/Ace Kefford
Length: 44.6k / 7 chapters + prologue/epilogue
Rating and Warnings: FRM/Mature/M15+; warnings for grumpy old men dealing (or not dealing) with post-apocalyptic trauma and one non-explicit sex scene that could be read as dubcon. Lots (and lots) of walking. May destroy your childhood.

Notes: This is a complete first draft, written for [community profile] apocalypsebang/[livejournal.com profile] apocalypsebang. It deals with post-apocalypse (zombies) survival and trauma, and follows on from Brum and the Apocalypse, which I wrote for [livejournal.com profile] apocabigbang last year. You don't have to have read the previous fic, though there are a few brief references to it in this current fic. Setting is AU!UK, covers late 2007-early 2008(ish).

I would appreciate a technical beta giving this a once-over to check story structure, plausibility, and coherency, just in case there's anything glaringly wrong with it. I think it's okay, but I could always do with another set of eyes just to make sure. It also needs to be stand-alone, so I'd really like to know if there's anything that I haven't fully explained. Obscure fandoms are obscure so I'm not expecting canon knowledge.

I also really need a Britpicker because I'm Australian and I'm not entirely confident I've picked out every mistake or got my geography correct. Familiarity with pub billiards a bonus, because I know I've messed up that scene. Also, I've just realised that my Australian brain forgot that Roy and Trevor spend half the fic walking across the southern part of England through the winter (*facepalm*) and obviously that will need to be fixed because I'm pretty sure I got all the weather wrong and they might be better off finding somewhere to camp for a while instead of pushing on. Any help with that would be appreciated.

Deadlines: Final draft is due on Jan 26th, 2013; I'd really like to get the fic beta'd before January if at all possible, though this is negotiable, given the time of year.
Contact: Comment here, send me a PM, or email ibdjehuty AT gmail.com.
