Time:7:23 pm.
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.

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 :)

Subject:Beta needed for two fics (Black Sails and MCU)
Posted by:manuushuu.
Time:5:15 pm.
Hello, I have two fics I need to beta (for the Trope Bingo). One is already published, and I've almost finished to write the second.

1. Pen Name: manuushuu (Shuufleur on AO3)

First fanfic:
2. Fandom: Black Sails (published on AO3)
3. Rating: PG-13 for a little violence
4. Spoilers/Time Line: post season 1, spoilers about Billy (sort of), otherwise nothing important.
5. Pairing: only unrequited Billy/Flint
6. Beta Type: I'm mostly looking for a grammar beta. English isn't my native language so there are a lot of mistakes even though I read and reread it like a thousand times. However, if you tell my content is awful or incoherent or the character OOC, I'll take it too but that's not compulsory. The fanfic is 3k words.
7. Harshness: My English is certainly not on point so tell me what you need to. I'd appreciate it if I can see my mistakes and the correction so that I try not to make that mistake ever again.

Second fanfic:
2. Fandom: Avengers (MCU)
3. Rating: G
4. Spoilers/Time Line: No spoilers, it's a no superpowers AU.
5. Pairing: pre-slash Stony
6. Beta Type: I haven't finished writing this fanfic but it'll be around 2-3k words I'm guessing. Still looking for a grammar beta as English isn't my native language.
7. Harshness: Same comment as previously: My English is certainly not on point so tell me what you need to. I'd appreciate it if I can see my mistakes and the correction so that I try not to make that mistake ever again.

Thank you!

Subject:Beta needed for NCIS/Criminal Minds (and NCIS:NO) crossover
Posted by:jacie3.
Time:6:16 pm.
1. Pen Name: jacie3, also Jacie on AO3 (http://archiveofourown.org/users/Jacie)
2. Fandom: NCIS crossover with Criminal Minds and NCIS:NO
3. Rating of the story: NC-17 (Some m/m graphic sexual situations and D/s in the first chapter, also violence, non-con, includes kidnapping where victim is beaten and raped.)
4. Spoilers/Time Line: Set mostly around Mardi Gras 2016 - mentions of past abuse for Derek Morgan, and that he is married, expecting his first child and is planning to leave the BAU. The series timeline may be slightly altered to fit into the story line.
5. Pairing: Gibbs/DiNozzo
6. Beta Type: My regular beta is going over the story, however, she knows nothing about Criminal Minds. I'm fairly confident about my characterizations, but since this is my first time writing characters from Criminal Minds, I'd love to have someone who is familiar with Criminal Minds take a look at this. It is around 30K and written for the NCIS Big Bang Challenge at ncis_bang. Completed story is due 30 Sept.
7. Harshness: Constructive criticism is welcome. I'm not terribly sensitive, and I do want to improve the story and my writing skills.

Subject:Beta needed for a Harry Potter/Pansy Parkinson fic
Posted by:mere_whispers.
Time:7:05 pm.
Mood: ecstatic.
FOUND. 1. Pen Name: mere-whispers
2. Fandom: Harry Potter
3. Rating: PG-13
4. Timeline: Post Deathly Hallows, War AU
5. Pairing: Harry Potter x Pansy Parkinson
6. Beta Type: I basically need someone to perform a really quick SPaG over the nearly-7K words that make this one shot up. I don't want any brushing up - neither with the plot, nor with my portrayal. I just need someone to spend not more than five minutes on my piece, because the rules of the fest - that it is meant for - say so.
7. Harshness: As stated earlier, not much focus is required. Lesser the harshness, better would it suit me.
