Subject: Beta wanted for Harry/Draco project
Security: Public
I'd like a beta to help me with a project that has been in the works for a very long time. The info is as follows:

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: It's a chaptered fic that I estimate will be around 30k
Warnings: None, though it's an AU

As mentioned, this is going to be a chaptered fic. It's not being written for a fest, so there's no time pressure. Mostly, I need someone who can be really patient, because the writing of this fic is very slow. That said, I have the first 10k written down, which I figure is a good enough place to start.

If you're interested, comment below or PM me!

Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer


What do you hope to get out of this Community?: I desperately need a beta! I'm not a English native speaker, and although, I do my best to check the grammar, there always something to be corrected. And I want to improve my writing as well, so constructive criticism is very welcome.


How long have you been writing/beta-ing?: This is my second work as a writer.


What genre of stories to you like to write/beta?: I'm very new at writing so I don't have a genre yet. My two only works are in first person, and I feel comfortable writing like that but, again, I have never tried any other way. My fandom is ZUDE from "Hit The Floor" a TV show, it's slash, and they're canon. This fandom is really small, and that's the reason I can't find a beta who are into it as well.



Do you have a website you'd like to show us?: Sho_om (This is my Ao3 account, you can find my first fic there.)


What sparks your creativity?: Right now, ZUDE sparks my creativity. Zero is a basketball player superstar and Jude was his agent. They started as friends, and than they were friends with benefits, and now, they're pretty much married. I must admit that I love read more than write, but this is such a small fandom that weren't much ZUDE fics out there, and I already have read all of them.


Trigger warnings: Slash, rated M, rough sex (but NOT non-con)





Post a sample of your work under an LJ cut. Please make sure it is something you're proud of, and is less than 500 words long. - This can be an excerpt from a longer piece:

Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer / Lurker

What do you hope to get out of this Community?:
Ideally - a long term beta willing to work with me on various projects across different fandoms.
For now - Someone to help me hammer a few BBC Luther fics into posting quality.

How long have you been writing/beta-ing?:
30 years, my first fanfic was 20 years ago, in the Buffy fandom.

What genre of stories to you like to write/beta?: (Please also add any fandoms you write here? =D)
Genre is aything goes, generally sticking to the nature of the fandom, with a bent towards science fiction.   Also, crack on occasion.
Shows: Currently, Criminal Minds and BBC's Luther.  In the past: Sherlock, Babylon 5: Crusade, Cabin Pressure, Stargate: Atlantis, Buffy, and a few others I may have forgotten.
Also, slash, almost always slash, and lots of PWP's (what I've dubbed PWF's - PWP's with Feels)

Do you have a website you'd like to show us?:
http://archiveofourown.org/users/Iocane - I'm sporadically in the process of compiling all of my various and sundry fics there, so some of my "recent" posts might be very old fics.

What sparks your creativity?:
Anything and everything, I've written stories based on an offhanded commant about punctuation marks.

What I'm looking for in a beta:

A jack of all trades.  SOmeone who can look objectively at my story and tell me what does and doesn't work.  I prefer to have mutiple go-throughs, with most of them focusing on the story, where to expand/trim, which direction to go, etc.  The final round is for the mechanical stuff - punctuation, grammer, britpicking.  I'm not looking for a soft beta, I want someone who'll red pen the heck out of my stuff and make me re-write a dodgy scene ten times until it's right.

Post a sample of your work under an LJ cut. Please make sure it is something you're proud of, and is less than 500 words long. - This can be an excerpt from a longer piece:


This is one of my few unbetaed AO3 stories.  It's an excerpt but still most of the story itself. Full storyOnward!Collapse )

Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer
What do you hope to get out of this Community?: I'm seeking a beta who can skim ficlets for obvious errors, and read longer pieces for grammar, flow and continuity. My writing ranges from drabble to bigbang in length. I appreciate canon assistance, but I would consider it a bonus. I'd prefer a beta in their twenties or older.
How long have you been writing?: I began writing fan!fic around 15 years ago.
What genre of stories to you like to write?: I don't have a particular genre, although most are some kind of romance. I tend to AU for band!fic, and have a penchant for world building.
Fandoms: I've written almost exclusively in bandom until recently, I'm currently interested in the Marvel Cinematic Universe [cannon, divergent & AU]
Are there any websites you would like to recommend to us?: Minotaur's Sex Tips for Slash Writers [the original, and the best].
Do you have a website you'd like to show us?: Livejournal Fic List, some cross-posted to AO3. I have written under several pen names. I have examples of two of those currently online.
What sparks your creativity?: Any manner of things.
