Subject: Looking for a beta (Dark!fics BBC Sherlock)
Security: Public
Name: Jane Fairfax
Beta/Writer/Lurker?: N00B writer (but I consider myself primarly a reader)
Fandom: BBC Sherlock
Rating: Explicit

What do you hope to get out of this Community?: The beta I was working with (with much satisfaction) its very busy IRL lately so she can't help me, so I'm searching for a second beta to work with. If in future my first beta will regain a bit of free time to beta for me again, I'd like to work with both betas at the same time.

Since I'm not a native english speaker, I need a beta whom at least will correct all the english grammar mistakes and the flowing of the sentences. General imputs on the story like continuity checks, structure changes, style or whatever you think it's needed will be very welcome as bonus. Brit-picking would be the cherry on top but it's not mandatory.

I don't have problems with (polite) strictness, but please be aware that sometimes I could not follow some of the advices, sometimes because I disagree, most times because I'm still not able to do better. Anyway I have thick skin and a strong sense of reality (I don't fancy myself a good writer) so it'll be very hard to annoy me.

I'm not a fast writer and I'm pretty chill, so I will not pester you to finish to correct my stories in a few days.

How long have you been writing?: Less than a year.
What genre of stories do you like to write: I write kinky dark sh*t (the "standard" dark kind, not the very dark kind), so I need a beta whom is ok with this kind of content. We can speak about what are our squicks via mp, so no one has bad surprises later (I don't write underage).

Subject: Beta wanted
Security: Public
Hi, I need a beta for several stories, some already posted on my LJ, others WIP.
English is my second language and I started writing in 2014.
My earlier stories need a lot of revision (head hoping and bad formating, for example) but I am trying to improve.
Basically, I need someone with time and patience to help me see what I'm doing wrong and what I can/should improve. I can provide all the stories in word doc format.
This is an example of a more recent one-shot: http://minesomine.livejournal.com/72362.html
It's an HP inspired story with K-pop characters.

1. Pen name: minesomine
2. Fandom: K-pop DBSK/JYJ and HP
3. Rating of the story: From PC-13 to NC-17
4. Spoilers/Time Line: I prefer to ignore HP's epilogue
5. Pairing: Harry/Draco and multiple pairings for K-pop
6. Beta Type: Grammar, pontuation, construction sentence, plot, flow
7. Harshness: Thick skin, no worries.

Subject: Looking for beta for a short fic
Security: Public

FOUND. Though I'm on the lookout for a beta who knows Suits canon, so if that's you and you're interested, please drop me a PM. :)

Name: twistofapen

Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer, have beta-ed occasionally

How long have you been writing/beta-ing?: Used to write often about five years back, but stopped and only now aiming to get back into fandom.

Fandom: Suits

Pairing: Harvey/Mike

Rating: PG-13

I’m looking for a beta for a 3k Suits slash fic. No knowledge of the show is needed as my fic is short and I'm aware Suits is a relatively small fandom now, especially on LJ. I’m just looking for someone to look for technical issues, particularly SpaG and pacing problems. If you are a Suits fan, awesome! This fic is based off a Season 5 episode (Blowback). Unfortunately, I've got no examples of previous work as all my old fic was on a now-purged ff.net account.

A harsh beta is not a problem, I’m not easily offended. All critique would be appreciated. Comment or PM if interested, and thank you in advance!

Security: Public

Age: 32
Sex: F
Tumblr: pallojaketju
Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer

How long have you been writing: I’ve been in fandom for about ten years, but haven’t published any stories in years so I’ve lost contact with my old betas. I’ve recently started writing again so I’m looking for some help to mainly Brit-pick and look over any grammar issues.
What genre of stories to you like to write/beta?: BBC Sherlock (Johnlock)

More specifically, I’m looking for a beta-reader in the Sherlock (Johnlock) fandom. I’m looking for someone to look over my grammar and brit-pick an explicit post-S4 Johnlock-fic (2.7K)
If you have time to give more elaborate feedback on plot, style, characterisation etc. that would be excellent (but not necessary).
I’m not a prolific writer, so this can be a one-time thing, but if I write more in the future and you are willing, maybe we can get together again. I’m also willing to beta your work in return.

What I’m looking for from a beta:

-You love BBC Sherlock and especially Johnlock. You’ll enjoy the experience more and this way we already have something in common :)
- You are +25 years old. Age is just a number, but in this case, I’d like someone who is closer to my age (which is 32), so we are not from completely different universes.
- You can brit-pick (you don’t have to be British, just have a good knowledge of BrEnglish)
If you’re interested, message me at @pallojaketju (Tumblr or LJ)
Thank you!

Subject: Need a beta for Girl Meets World fanfics
Security: Public

Pen Name: cassie_faith on FFN and Ms_Faith on AO3

How long have you been writing?: 9 years

Fandom: My current inspiration is for Girl Meets World

Rating of the story: Overall, PG-13. However, I’d say there are/were a few Mature or R-rated moments.

Spoilers/Timeline: Not really. Anything I write is typically Future Fic, Parallel/Alternate Universe, or Post Canon. I write for a non-canon couple, so really no spoilers.*

Pairing: Rilaya (Riley/Maya)

Beta Type: Spelling, grammar, and continuity (based on what I’ve established). General input on story, dialogue, and content. Also someone to bounce ideas off of would be awesome!   

Harshness: This is something I do for pleasure, so I need someone who recognizes that. I certainly don’t need coddled, but I do need someone who respects me and my writing style when critiquing.**

Other Notes: I write femslash that has occasional sexual content. I do my writing in Google Docs, so that makes revisions easy.

*Additionally, I don’t need someone in the fandom or even with knowledge of the show. Anything canon mentioned can be Googled or I’ll explain it if asked. However, past canon things don’t come up often in my writing.

**The fic I currently need help with is already in progress (11 chapters so far, in last leg of story, 13,082 words posted). I had two friends helping me beta and things weren't working out. The one is in school, so I let her go so she could focus on her studies. The other I clash with and it was beginning to affect my ability to write. I’m planning to write another Rilaya story once my current one is finished, so I need someone to stick with me!

If you’re interested, please let me know!

Subject: Looking for a Beta
Security: Public


Name: ba_rabby
Gender: Female
Beta/Writer/Lurker?: Writer since 2012, Beta since 2014
Fandoms: Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Elder Scrolls, Mass Effect
My work: http://archiveofourown.org/users/ba_rabby/works

I generally write short to medium stories with adult content (rated M to E). I've been toying with the idea of a Skyrim fanfic for some time and I finally wrote a story for last year's NaNoWriMo. I would like to find a beta-reader to help me with my Skyrim novel. It will be quite a long work and I'm more than willing to beta-read in exchange for the help. I am looking for an extra pair of eyes to catch spelling and grammar issues, along with structural, consistency and/or problems with flow.

If you think this might be up your alley, message me and we can work something out. I hope to hear from someone soon.
