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
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.

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.

Subject:Need a beta for multiple works (fandom specific not required but appreciated if your familiar)
Posted by:brnt_0fferings.
Time:1:41 pm.

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:Looking for a beta
Posted by:twistofapen.
Time:8:11 pm.

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. :)

Pen Name: twistofapen

Fandom: Suits
Rating: PG-13
Spoilers/Timeline: Season 5, specifically 5x11
Pairing: Harvey/Mike
Beta Type: SpaG, pacing, other technical issues
Harshness: As harsh as you want

I’m looking for a beta for a 3k Suits slash fic. It’s a relatively small fandom now, especially on LJ, and my fic is short, so no knowledge of the show needed. I’m just looking for someone to look for technical issues, particularly SpaG and pacing problems. If you are a Suits fan, awesome!

I haven't written fic in years, so I'm probably rusty and would appreciate a harsh beta. I'm not easily offended, and would be grateful for the critique. Comment or PM if interested, and thank you in advance!

Posted by:sarren.
Time:11:02 pm.
Pen Name: sarren
How long have you been writing?: about a decade, but sporadically
Fandom: Lucifer
Rating of the story: NC-17
Spoilers/Timeline: No
Pairing: Chloe/Lucifer
Beta Type: Grammar/SPaG.
Harshness: Ruthless. I've been looking for a beta for a while, so at this point just after SPaG, but if you notice anything else that doesn't work please feel free to point it out.
Other Notes: Sex pollen fic, so by definition, dub con but not really, because they both want to be together canonically. Pretty much porn, sex toys etc. Complete, just under 7k. Thanks in advance :)

Subject:Need a beta for Girl Meets World fanfics
Posted by:cassie_faith.
Time:7:42 pm.

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 Grimm beta-reader
Posted by:ayumie.
Time:8:12 pm.
Hi everybody :)

I'm looking for a beta-reader for my Grimm slash fanfics. English isn't my first language (although I consider myself reasonably fluent), so my beta-reader should be a native speaker.

1. ayumie
2. Grimm (TV)
3. Eventually NC-17
4. Spoilers/Time Line: AU branching off after the season II. My last beta-reader did the first chapters - you can find them here:
5. Renard/Nick
6. Beta Type: I've got the content angle pretty much covered, but I definitely need a native speaker to smooth over my English. Of course, fandom input would be welcome as well :)
7. Harshness: I'm open for constructive criticism.

It'd be great, if somebody here was willing to help :)
