Subject:Looking for Beta Reader
Posted by:mypenmyjihad.
Time:3:16 pm.

1.  I used to be bitterfic on live journal, currently mypenmyjihad
2. Fandom- Assorted.  Currently writing stories in Descendants 2, Looper, Inception fandoms.
3. Rating of the story-  R, NC-17)
4. Spoilers/Time Line — Depends on the story.  
5. Pairing - I write a variety of pairings, m/m, m/f, f/f and threesomes.  
6. Beta Type — Primarily looking for a Grammar Beta.  
7. Harshness- Looking for someone to edit grammar, not content.


I've been out of fandom for several years but recently found myself writing again.  I'd like to find a person to edit my stories for grammar.  I work in a variety of fandoms, many obscure and the stories I write tend to be very dark and sexual, lots of rape and angst.  Hoping there's someone out there not opposed to reading and editing material of this kind.

Penname: openthisjarofpicklesforme
Fandom: Orville, the
Rating: (of the story as a whole) NC-17
Pairing: Ed Mercer/Alara Kitan

Kink/Triggers/Tags, etc.: BDSM, patriarchy, sexism (in the minds of OC aliens,) dubcon (but not really.)

Other: I need a beta who will stick with me for the entire length of the story as it is a work in a progress. Also, people should know that I'm a slow writer.

Contact: Comment here, if interested.

Thank you!

It's 2,000 words. I would be really happy if someone could help me out because the fandom is so small that it's very hard to find a beta.

Posted by:velocitym1.
Time:5:29 pm.
Pen Name: Litra
Fandom: Flash
Rating of the story: Teen
Spoilers/Time Line:It's a case fic so I'm keeping the timeline vague. I do mention the end of Legends season one but only briefly.
Pairing: Barry / Len
Beta Type: Mostly spelling and grammar, but I'm open to more if you see a glairing plot hole.
Harshness: I am open to criticism as long as its constructive.

It's for the remix chalenge, so I need to have it posted before the 20th of August.
This is kind of a fairy-tale AU, and kind of a case fic. There's a spell that's making people play out fairy tales all over Central. Len gets caught in the three billy goats story, then gets pulled in to help fix it by Flash. Len gets caught in Little Mermaid. Lisa is Rumplestiltskin and so on. Eventually they beat the bad guys and save the day.
Rating is for cannon typical violence.
I have a strong outline given that it's a remix story. I've written most of the first two chapters. The story looks like it will be about 7000-8000 words. 10,000 max

Subject:a song of ice and fire beta needed
Posted by:littledove21.
Time:1:31 am.
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:Trans woman's opinion wanted/needed
Posted by:momotastic.
Time:7:41 pm.
I'm looking specifically for a trans woman's opinion on a (crack) piece I'm writing.

Pen Name momotastic
Fandom Fullmetal Alchemist
Rating of the story G
Spoilers/Time Line Uh, mostly works for all the canons, I guess?
Pairing Implied pre RoyEd
Beta Type This fic has a theme (it's a crossover, or maybe more a fusion) which has the potential to be transphobic, specifically for trans women, which is why I would like to have a trans woman read it over and tell me what she thinks. You don't even need to know FMA to read this over.
Harshness Be as honest as you need to be. I'm asking because I want to make sure I make this as inoffensive as I can. I think I've done okay, but since I'm cis, I can't be the judge of that.

Subject:Beta needed for a fic in the The Librarians fandom
Posted by:honor_reid.
Time:11:43 am.
Pen Name: honor_reid
Fandom: The Librarians
Rating of the story: PG
Spoilers/Time Line: Set post season three but could really go anywhere in canon.
Pairing: No pairing but the focus is on Ezekiel and Jenkins
Beta Type: I mostly need a beta for grammar and any glaring discrepancies that present themselves in the story. I don't believe familiarity with the show is strictly necessary. 
Harshness: I am open to criticism as long as its constructive.

This is for the librarian ship-a-thon that is happening on tumblr.  Ezekiel & Jenkins week is July 15-21 so I would need it before then.  The story is a one shot around 1500 words.

Subject:Small comment fic pieces (different fandoms)
Posted by:dunderklumpen.
Time:10:59 am.
Pen Name: dunderklumpen
Fandom:
Teen Wolf, The Flash, iZombie, Harry Potter
Rating: Everything is G right now. But could go up in the future.
Spoilers/Time Line: All of them up to date to the current seasons although for most of them it's not neccessary to know.
Pairing: Derek/Allison, Stiles/Derek, Cahrlie/Neville, Liv
Beta Type: 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.
Harshness: I don't mind a harsh beta if it's constructive criticism.

Subject:Beta needed: Teen Wolf ficlet
Posted by:dunderklumpen.
Time:3:40 pm.
Pen Name: dunderklumpen
Fandom: Teen Wolf
Rating: PG 12 (just because they're swearing a little)
Spoilers/Time Line: Based on things that happen in season 3.
Pairing: It's a Scott & Stiles friendship fic. No pairing although you can read it as pre-slash if you want.
Beta Type: SPaG and phrasing. It's 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;)
Harshness: If it's constructive it can be as harsh as you want.

Subject:Beta needed: FMA crack, implied RoyEd
Posted by:momotastic.
Time:6:08 pm.
Pen Name: momotastic
Fandom: Fullmetal Alchemist
Rating: G at the moment, possibly PG for swearing?
Spoilers/Time Line: Unspecified but definitely pre-ending. I didn't even specify which canon is used.
Pairing: Only implied RoyEd atm
Beta Type: SPaG, maybe flow and style, some feedback on what else should go into it.
Harshness: I don't mind a lot of comments but I expect you to be polite about it. You don't have to apologise for every critique, but be civil in the way you phrase your comments.

It's kind of cracky in its concept and I'm thinking about expanding it, or adding more stories to the 'verse. I'd like some kind of feedback on it first though from someone who knows the fandom and preferably ships RoyEd.
