Hi guys!!! I'm part of the Marvel Big Bang this year and my entry is due in Nov 18th. I need someone that can help me with my sentence structure, wording, pacing and any other thing you might be willing to offer. English is not my first language so it would be extremely helpful to have a second or third pair of eyes looking over my work.

Here's the info on my story:

Title: Down the Valley of Elah
Summary: Scott has to rebuild his life on the ashes of his Phoenix possession, the death of the man that was his father in fact if not in blood and the shattering of most relationships he's ever had. Scott is acquitted of the crimes he committed under the influence of the Phoenix. AvX Consequences AU.

Here's an excerpt of the story. It's incredibly rough since I haven't had the change to edit and clean it up:

The apartment was all upper New York lush and plush. From the white: carpets, wrap around sectionals, to the minimalistic metal and glass that was supposed to be the height of fashion but felt cold and impersonal. So unlike the warm oak paneling of the mansion so many years ago. The afghans and throws and quilts thrown over the backs of well worn couches, foot of soft beds and the occasional chandeliers if any of them were feeling particularly creative. 

 

It wasn’t the alien place to Scott. He had spent the greater part of his youth with a billionaire’s son, a chunk of his adult’s life in real alien home-worlds and then with Emma Frost as his lover. But it didn’t fit like a second skin or third skin. Always out of place in the landscape of who Scott Summers was and where he belonged. 

 

It was a familiar feeling. Similar to the one he had after he regained his sight, when the mansion wasn’t just made out of a symphony of sounds and textures. The day he opened his eyes to red tints and dark shades, it was like Alice falling through the rabbit hole. This whole new world where nothing matched and everything was an askew vision of the images in his head. 

 

So no, here in the very pinnacle of luxury that New York city had to offer, Scott Summers didn’t feel out of place so much as a man coming into sunlight after years underground. Blotches of black dancing in his eyes and everything too bright and dark by turns. 

 

He stood at the threshold and couldn’t make himself take those first real steps into a new life. And that was it, wasn’t it? New life, new beginnings.

 

A new start. 

 

 

Again.

 

Somehow unfair, really. How easily everything seemed to come and go. How often he was forced to pick up the pieces and start over again. To rebuild: the school, the dream, a mutant safe-haven, broken relationships, life. And shouldn’t there be a rule about that? A kind of limit to the times you got to watch your entire life burn down, of having to start all over again? 

 

Four, maybe. 

 

That would be a good number. A decent number. Instead of this never ending cycle he seemed to be trapped in. That futility of purpose that never reached its mark and always, always ended in failure. Like Sisyphus, cursed to roll a boulder up a hill over and over again. Knowing that no matter how close he came to the summit, he would never, ever reach it. 

 

He stood there in arrested indecision, wondering, not for the first time, if he had it in him for another new start. Once more unto the breach. Somehow the thought left him feeling tired and older than his twenty seven years. 

 

A heavy weight settled on his shoulders as he peered into the room. There was a crowd there. To celebrate. As if any of what had happened was cause for anything but a funerary progression. Scott certainly felt like something inside was decaying. The rot spreading inwards and outwards towards anyone and everyone that he came into contact with. 

 

Why couldn’t you just have left it alone? He thought not for the first time at Matt Murdock, who stood to his left, like he had since day one. Matt, who was an Avenger on occasion and a vigilante always. Lawyer to the destitute and disenfranchised and thought that Scott was worthy of his time and effort. Scott wanted to hate him and some days he thought the man was every bit the demon he masquerade about. 


HELP!!! :D

Fandom: NCIS: New Orleans
Characters/Pairings: Loretta Wade x Dwayne Pride
Rating & Warnings: PG/None
Estimated Fic Length: 2400
Notes: This is a get together fic that is mostly fluff. I mostly need grammar help but if you are familiar with the show that would be a perk

Thank you!







dreamofhope: Frodo worried (Default)
[personal profile] dreamofhope
Fandom: Original M/M fic

Characters/Pairings: Guardsman/Prince

Rating & Warnings: Eventually E /sexual slavery, dub con

Estimated Fic Length: 20k or more, but even if you can just look over a chapter or two I'd appreciate it.

Other Notes:

My story is set in a vaguely European fantasy world during the 17th/18th centuries. The palace is loosely based on Versailles and the guards on the Musketeers. Its angsty, but with a HEA.

Beta Type: Pretty much everything! From SPAG to content or just someone to bounce ideas off of. Also, a beta who knows something about astronomy and philosophy which my MCs frequently discuss and/or argue about would be a bonus.

Harshness: Nothing too harsh I'm writing this for fun, but definitely constructive criticism!

[personal profile] meicdon13

Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairings: Rose Quartz/Pearl (one-sided pining from Pearl's side), Rose Quartz/minor original male characters
Rating & Warnings: None
Estimated Fic Length: 1,000-2,000 words
Notes: There are multiple minor original male characters. The fic basically focuses on Pearl being jealous of all the other humans Rose Quartz has ever been interested in. The story is set pre-canon so there aren't really any spoilers.

The fic is only halfway done; aside from the usual spelling and grammar checks, I'm looking for someone to give feedback on whether characters are OOC or not and comment on the story's flow. I don't mind harsh critiques :3

cassie_faith: (Default)
[personal profile] cassie_faith
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...

Pairing(s): Harry/Draco
Warnings/Content Notes: A little bit of gore
Word Count: 10-15k
Additional Details: Fic is due on September 9th and I'm still writing it (I know, I'm terrible). I figure I have about 3-4k left of writing, but I'd love to have a beta help me get started with the proofreading!

[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.)

[personal profile] outstretched
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).

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!

dunderklumpen: (Default)
[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.

dunderklumpen: (Default)
[personal profile] dunderklumpen

Fandom: Teen Wolf
Characters/Pairings: It's a Scott & Stiles friendship fic. No pairing although you can read it as pre-slash if you want.
Rating & Warnings: PG 12 (just because they're swearing a little). Based on things that happen in season 3.
Notes: I need mostly help with SPaG and phrasing. The story is a translation of a german fic (ca. 1.500 words) and my nightmare would be that it reads like something a 12 year old has written. You know... Denglish;)
shuufleur93: (Default)
[personal profile] shuufleur93
Fandom: Supernatural/The Amazing Spder-Man (MCU in general)
Characters/Pairings: Peter Parker/Sam Winchester, the Avengers, Dean Winchester.
Rating & Warnings: T, I guess there's canon typical violence.
Summary: The story of Peter Parker and Sam Winchester.
Notes: I'm writing that fanfic for the WIP Big Bang, and as English isn't my mothertongue, I need a beta to check all the grammar/syntax/voc.

What you need to know:
  • This fic takes place during the s7-8 hiatus for Supernatural, and post TASM 2/pre-CA: The Winter Soldier for MCU.
  • I aged Peter up so that he's in his early twenties when Sam and him get involved (because otherwise it's pretty creepy).
  • I've written 6k so far, and I might double that in the end.
My main concern is grammar/syntax/voc, as I said but if you have any suggestions plot-wise or think my plot really not coherent or the characters are really OOC, don't hesitate to tell me.

I guess, that's it. :)
hanaheart: Snape (Default)
[personal profile] hanaheart
1. Pen Name: HanaHeart
2. Fandom: Slam Dunk Anime
3. Rating of the story: NC-17
4. Spoilers/Time Line: Nothing too much except maybe some small references to some events in the anime but nothing major.
5. Pairing: Sendoh/Rukawa and maybe some other minor ones
6. Beta Type: Well, Grammer, spelling, used of words, Characterization, continuity and consistency of the plot and characters, also I'm in desperate need of help in writing sex parts...thought they won't be much.
7. warnings: well, there is mention of rape, dubious consent, and heavy angst.
8. Harshness: 75% would be okay, I guess?
9. Other: This is AU. Sets when Sendoh and Rukawa are working adults.
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.
isis: (quill)
[personal profile] isis
Fandom: The Witcher 3 (the video game)
Characters/Pairings: Ciri/Astrid
Rating & Warnings: M, no warnings
Notes: This is 3.7k of post-canon f/f set after the ending in which Ciri becomes a witcher. It is based on these events in the game: )

I am confident of my SPAG but need someone to catch typos, thinkos, places where I accidentally a word out or use the same phrase multiple times. I also want general impressions of how it works as a story, and how it fits with canon. I would really prefer someone familiar with the game, and it would be amazing if you've also read the books (I haven't).
