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.)

Fandom: Pokemon Gameverse (HGSS, Kanto focus, with frequent mention of other gens/regions)
Characters/Pairings: Green/Red. Supporting cast includes Professor Oak, Kris, Silver, Leaf, Daisy Oak, Red's Mom, Red's Pikachu, Green's Eevee, and a whole plethora of OCs. The fic takes place 13 years after the events of the games, so the characters are all a little older.
Rating & Warnings: The fic is rated T. Major themes are trauma recovery, difficult/fraught family situations, near death experiences, second chances, the ocean, and forgiveness. Overall, the fic is meant to be uplifting rather than dark.
Estimated Fic Length: 30-35k, probably? Four out of the five parts are written and it's 25k so far. I mostly need a beta for parts 3 (7k) and 4 (8k), and maybe part 5 when it's finished. Though if you wanted to look at the first two parts I wouldn't say no...
Notes: You can read the first chapter here if you'd like a preview. I'm looking for a beta with knowledge of the pokemon universe, who would be willing to give feedback on everything ranging from wordiness, word choice, spelling, and grammar to pacing, character voices, repetition, and anything else you'd like really. I adore constructive criticism, please critique me to within an inch of my life! But please don't be mean about it, that's all.

I'd be more than happy to beta your fic in return! I mostly hail from anime fandom (you can see the list of anime I'm familiar with here), I also know homestuck even though that fandom is dead, and I live in pokemon fandom too, of course. Alternatively, if you only want spelling/grammar/etc. help and a knowledge of the universe isn't necessary, I'm willing to lend a hand. I'm especially useful if you need medical fact-checking, as I am a health professional.

You can leave a comment here, or my e-mail is passerine.cloud@gmail.com. Thank you very much for considering!

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).
queencestqueen: (Touching)
[personal profile] queencestqueen
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.

[personal profile] shuufleur93
Fandoms: Supernatural and Marvel Cinematic Universe (though for now it's Iron Man)
Characters/Pairings: Sam Winchester/Tony Stark
Rating & Warnings: T, 12 year age gap
Notes: this is a fanfic I started a year ago but haven't finished yet. I've written 12k so far.
I'd like a beta to:
  • edit my numerous mistakes (as English isn't my native language),
  • tell me if the story is logical/coherent, etc or it sucks (not so bluntly but you know what I mean).
  • (optional) tell me if the characters are OOC (as this fanfic is pre-canon for both fandoms)
I almost forgot to say: this fanfic is actually the first in a series I plan to write, sort of following SPN and MCU canon up to the last season/movie out or that I've seen.

More info under the cut )

If you're interested, you can contact me through DW or AO3

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!
akashimarryme: (heterochromia)
[personal profile] akashimarryme
Fandom: Kuroko no Basuke
Characters/Pairings: Kise Ryouta/Kuroko Tetsuya
Rating & Warnings: T, drama, angst

Notes: Um. I'm currently writing a Kuroko no Basuke fanfiction with Kise/Kuroko as the pairing, and it would be a multi-chaptered fanfiction. I'm not good when it comes to grammar and my vocabulary is limited. What I'm trying to say is, I'm in direct need of a beta-reader. Knowledge of the fandom is required.

Preferred beta-reader is whose English is their first language, has wide knowledge in English grammar and English vocabulary, and willing to help me develop the storyline. Actually, I really want to use beta-reader service on FFn, but I'm too shy to even ask. Because of that, I hope you could help me.
iwasanartist: (Default)

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.
imperion: (loz. princess zelda. hyrule's princess.)
[personal profile] imperion
Fandom: Dragon Age II
Characters/Pairings: Aggressive M!Hawke, Carver and Bethany, Malcolm and Leandra, and a host of OCs. Main pairing is M!Hawke/Bethany but there will also be M!Hawke/OC and Carver/OC.
Rating & Warnings: Heavy R at the moment. It's an AU and there will be incest.
Notes: Fic is called Monsters and Men and it's basically casting the Hawke family as the Borgias of Thedas. It's a chapter fic and I'd like to post it as I finish it. So I would appreciate a different set of eyes to give a look over for flow and any grammar issues.
barbayat: (Loki This usually works)
[personal profile] barbayat
Fandom: Star Trek Enterprise
Characters/Pairings: Ambassador Suval/OFC
Rating & Warnings: S for Smut, Rough Sex
Notes: A short three chapter story, roughly 2k each chapter, the last one needs a bit more work. I am really looking for a beta to look at wording, grammar and spelling. Or anything that jumps right out.

The plot is fairly simple, the Ambassador has problems of the pon-farr persuasion. He can not make it home in time and decides to withdraw to a remote location on Earth to meditate the problem away. A park ranger discovers the Ambassador ...

Fandom: Sherlock (TV)
Pairing: John/Sherlock, Mary/Sherlock

Status: This is a rewrite of a previous series. Two are currently posted, and one is going up now.
I need a proofreader and logic checker. I would like someone who can tell me when I am going too far OOC.
I have decided to change the ending and am concerned that the new story and the old story will not mesh.

You can find the SERIES here:

pearlheart04: (Default)
[personal profile] pearlheart04
Fandom: Teen Wolf

Pairings: Scott/Isaac

Rating/ Warnings: Adult Content (NC-17 eventually); canon compliant violence, child abuse, sexual content between minors, alcohol use, past (minor) character death

Notes: The story is multi-chaptered WIP. Word count is 2,000 as of right now but will probably be around 15-20k when finished.The story is still in its beginning stages (I have rough outline and the first few chapters).I would love someone to bounce plot ideas off of and work on issues with flow, characterization, tense and general readability. Some help with grammar is also needed. Human AU, slow build romance, hurt/comfort, angst, high school setting, coming of age. Features an alternating p.o.v - 3rd person limited omniscience shifting btw Scott and Isaac.

Anyone interested? Thanks in advance!

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.

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Characters/Pairings: Willow/Oz
Rating & Warnings: PG-13, with minimal violence and adult content
Notes: This is a post-canon AR, in which Willow and Oz reunite in Istanbul after Willow has parted ways with the Watcher's Council. It's on the lengthier side, and could probably be cut down some. The focus is very clearly Willow and Oz, but Buffy, Xander, Kennedy, and Faith all play small roles.

Fandom: Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel: the Series
Characters/Pairings: Anya/Giles, Andrew/Xander, Fred/Tara
Rating & Warnings: nothing explicit, and all of these fics are generally in the PG-13 area. There are mentions of past abuse in the Fred/Tara fic, but nothing explicit.
Notes: This request is for multiple shorter fics for the pairings listed above. Any interested beta wouldn't have to commit to all of them, any assistance you're willing to provide would be greatly appreciated. There are a couple of Anya/Giles fics (under 1,000 words each) written for the 20 Established Relationships challenge on LJ, one BtVS/AtS crossover that's Fred/Tara (just about 1,000 words), and an in-progress post-Chosen Andrew/Xander fic.

Thank you!

Fandom: Harry Potter/Avengers

[personal profile] snowynight
Fandom: Harukanaru Toki no Naka de | Within the Expanse of a Distant Time
Characters/Pairings: Minamoto no Yorihisa/Motomiya Akane
Rating & Warnings: PG, no warning so far
Notes: Currently at 6.7K and counting, but the early parts are more or less done. I estimate that it'll be done at 10K. If you want to know about it more, the earlier parts are posted here: Searching the Heaven.Fandom knowledge is unnecessary. I mainly need grammar and plot check. There's no time pressure.
kdheart: (chaos)
[personal profile] kdheart
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.

el_staplador: Actress Mary Anne Keeley in a breeches role (breeches)
[personal profile] el_staplador
Fandom: Anthony Hope's Ruritania books (The Prisoner of Zenda/Rupert of Hentzau/The Heart of Princess Osra - though I've used the latter for background only) with a tiny crossovery allusion to Sherlock Holmes, specifically A Scandal in Bohemia

Characters/Pairings: OFC/OFC - basically, the story is set 20 years after the events of Rupert of Hentzau, and so I have invented an entire next generation.

Rating & Warnings: Teen, for some mildly sexy parts (sexier than the books, yes, but mostly allusive or fade-to-black), and some violence (not any more graphic than the books). Warnings: major character death. Readers should also note that this involves nineteenth century European royalty, so first cousin relationships are standard (it makes me really uncomfortable calling that a warning, but I know it squicks some people, so.)

Notes: Currently at 25K and counting, but the early parts are more or less done. I'd like to get a chapter to you at a time and start to post it. If you'd like to know a bit more about the story before offering, I'm doing a 30 days meme about it on my journal at the moment, so do wander over and have a look.
