Subject: beta needed for a song of ice and fire fic FOUND
Security: Public
1. littledove21
2. a song of ice and fire, game of thrones
3. PG-13
4. set after a dance with dragons, tv canon up to season 5
5. Aegon VI/Sansa Stark
6. SPaG, flow, characterisation
7. I like my beta to be honest but not brutal.

Notes: Although I have written Aegon I haven't actually read that far into the books yet so canon may lean more towards the tv show, but not after season 5 as Sansa doesn't marry Ramsay.

Subject: Sherlock - post-Baskerville whump fic needs extra eyes
Security: Public
Location:Chicago, IL
1. Pen Name: 88thParallel (Amanda IRL, 31, F)
2. Fandom: Sherlock (BBC)
3. Rating of the story: T, maybe R?
4. Spoilers/Time Line: Takes place immediately after THoB (2x02)
5. Pairing: Sherlock/John but gen (at this point, anyway...)
6. Beta Type: Any help is appreciated, and desperately needed. I do also need a Brit-picker. Any British military and/or medical and/or wilderness survival knowledge would be incredible, too.
7. Harshness: Constructive criticism only makes things better!
8. Other: Haven't written fic in a decade, getting back to it with Sherlock (I used to write X-Files and Third Watch, and some unpublished Lost). I'm at 25k words so far, thinking it'll clock in around 40k all said and done.

Have some plot holes I'm working on patching, so someone to bounce ideas off of would be great too.

John!Whump, lots of angst and emotional hurt/comfort (bonus of guilty!Sherlock).

Subject: Beta needed for Spartacus fusion fanfiction...
Security: Public
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.

Aelora posting in Find Me A Beta
User: aelora
Date: 2017-04-07 10:40
Subject: Looking for a beta for Seblaine chaptered fic
Security: Public
Pen Name: Aelora
How long have you been writing?: A very long time
Fandom: Glee
Rating of the story: Definitely R, if not some NC-17
Pairing: Seblaine (Also some Klaine)
Beta Type: Spelling, grammar, continuity, story, dialogue, characterization (very important!)
Harshness: Fair? I mostly need someone to understand that this is my first foray into the Seblaine ship, and that I haven't written in the Glee fandom in over four years personal attacks.
Other Notes: The story is in present tense, so if that isn't your thing you'll probably hate it. I write in Google docs for easy editing. The fic will be at least 10 chapters, if not closer to 12, depending on what makes sense for the overall story. It takes place during S4 so **it does include cheating**---if that's not your thing. Also, my fics have never been short. So, just a warning.

Subject: Looking for a beta in Shadowhunters (TV) fandom
Security: Public
Pen Name: tarienemrys

Fandom: Shadowhunters

Rating of the story: Mostly PG-13 at times rated R (on violence) . I don't write much of explicit contents.

Pairing: Malec.

Beta Type: English is my second language so I don't have often use it. My biggest weakness is on spelling/grammar and sentence structure. Any advice on story structure or style is welcome but it's not a must :)

I mostly write episode tags, missing scenes or fics that were inspired from prompts. I'm currently planning to write a collection of episode tags/missing scenes/ character study fics for Shadowhunters to overcome the hiatus. I need beta help mostly with this project. :)

Date: 2017-03-07 13:45
Subject: Need a beta for multiple works (fandom specific not required but appreciated if your familiar)
Security: Public

Name: brnt0fferings (or Deni)

Age: 25 (until I can't pull it off anymore then 26)

Sex: F

e-Mail: brnt0fferings@gmail.com

Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Lurker long enough to hatch plots big enough for me to write them out.

What do you hope to get out of this Community/look for in a beta?: Some on to look over fics as I finish them before I officially post them on AO3.

Really I think the bones of my fics is good Im just not sure about the execution:

Does it flow/read well? Grammar, should a different phrasing be used to make thing clearer etc

I play with the wording and order allot so edits shouldn't take me long.

If your willing to be a sounding board, help me bounce ideas of you that would be such a huge bonus!

How long have you been writing?: About 4 years now but I have only recently started posting.

Harshness: Im ok with harsh...not downright rude though. If you hate it and it sucks you can tell me but please be constructive, tell me why and what I can do to fix it.

Rating: PG-T?:

Ill have darker more explicit works later on but Ill give plenty of warning before. For the purpose of this specific post its maybe T just to be safe (language and implied relationships).

Fandoms: I am focusing on Serenity/Firefly right now... Im ridiculously late to this fandom I know (T.T) BUT I really don't think you need to follow the series to be able to beta for me.

What sparks your creativity?: Everything! Music tends to set a tone but all it takes is a line and Ill have a whole rough  plot line set out.

Sorry, no LJ-cut, just a link.http://brnt-0fferings.livejournal.com/1866.html

Title: Sleep Cycles

Fandom: Serenity/Firefly

Pairing: Mal/River tones but theres Mal/Inara implied too

Rating: PG-T

Length: Roughly 1400 words

Summary: A collection of One-shots that follow Mal around as he wanders around Serenity unable to sleep. Definite Mal/River bent :)

Subject: Hello! Also: I'd love a multi-fandom beta
Security: Public
Location:Brookline, MA
Music:Coworkers Talking
Name: Liz
Age: 28
Sex: Cis Female
Google Hangouts: pyrrhical@gmail.com
e-Mail: pyrrhical@gmail.com
Beta/Writer/Lurker?: All three, depending on the fandom.
What do you hope to get out of this Community?: I would like to find a jack-of-all-trades beta, and I'd love to offer my beta services.
How long have you been writing/beta-ing?: Writing fic? 18 years. Beta-ing? 14.
What genre of stories to you like to write/beta?: Anything except: incest (weird Havemercy exception for Rook and Thom), A/B/O (sorry), non/dubcon. I will write or beta literally anything else.
Fandoms: I currently write in (or am writing in, but need said beta): Merlin (BBC), Star Trek (TOS/AOS), Man from U.N.C.L.E., X-Men, Fullmetal Alchemist, Stargate (SG-1/SGA), Supergirl, The Librarians, Chicago Med, No.6, Inception, Gundam Wing, Captive Prince, Brick/Inception crossover, Marvel 616 (MCU sometimes), Smallville, and I can be conned into many other things. Oh, and I mostly write slash. I do also write het, which is apparently Crazy Business.
Type of beta: I've got a JD, so your lawyer fic? I can fix that. I can also fix "magic" (Welsh, Latin) spells. In addition, I've got an English education certification sitting around somewhere, likely to expire soon, and I've spent the last ten years working in mental health. In general, I'm willing to beta anything that doesn't hit my squick list (see above). I beta for spelling/grammar in cases where I don't know the canon, and for characterization and canon as well, in cases where I do.
Are there any websites you would like to recommend to us?: Uh, Google Docs? For me, Google Docs has been the god of beta-ing.
Do you have a website you'd like to show us?: None you probably haven't seen already. Maybe the Massachusetts statute-finder site, but really, no one wants that.
What sparks your creativity?: Everything. Largely show-related things, but I have a somewhat profound obsession with domesticity. Whoops.

Sorry, no LJ-cut, just a link.
Title: Accustomed
Fandom: Merlin (BBC)
Pairing: Arthur/Merlin-ish
Rating: PG
Summary: "It takes longer for Merlin to become accustomed to Camelot than it does Arthur to become accustomed to Merlin."
