Subject:Beta-Request: A 'Wishful Thinking' Stranger Things Re-Write
Posted by:nekromanteiax.
Time:8:50 pm.

1. Pen Name: Nekromanteia
2. Fandom: Stranger Things
3. Rating: R/NC-17
4. Spoilers/Time Line: Spoilers through S3, canon-divergent timeline
5. Pairing: Hopper/Joyce, Nancy/Steve, Nancy/Jonathan/Steve, Nancy/Jonathan, Billy/Steve, Kali/Robin, El/Mike, Lucas/Max, Mike/Will, El/Max
6. Beta Type: Content/consistency/character
7. Harshness: Don't hold back!
8. Contact: divinerofthedead@gmail.com


Notes: I've planned out a lengthy fic and I'm looking for someone to keep it/me in check as I go! It is, essentially, a 'wishful thinking' re-write after the show (set mainly post-S1, as the first season was pretty much perfect). I'm aiming to update every two weeks or so, definitely no big rush, it's more important that anyone interested understand that I really do mean long-term as I plan to follow the series through until the show ends. 


As far as beta-skills go, I'm not too worried about spelling/grammar, I tend to catch most of those mistakes during my own edits. What I'm looking for is mainly someone to bounce ideas off of as I go and give me a second opinion on character and plot believability when it comes to the changes I'm making. Obviously, though, if you spot something that's misspelt or doesn't flow well, you're free to point it out. 


A few things worth noting: 



  • NC17 only pertains to the older teens and adults

  • while many pairings will feature prominently, at some point, only Hopper/Joyce and Billy/Steve are definitively endgame


Any help is appreciated 💜

Subject:BBC Merlin slash fic needs beta
Posted by:momotastic.
Time:5:22 pm.
Pen name: momotastic
Fandom: BBC Merlin
Rating of the story: So far it's PG but I intend to add an epilogue to ramp it up to Mature or Explicit.
Spoilers/Time Line: It's a modern AU, you don't necessarily need to know anything about the show tbh
Pairing: Merlin/Gwaine endgame
Wordcount: Currently at ~28k, estimated to be somewhere between 35 and 40 when I'm done. The first part is written and comes in at 23.5k. I just started the 2nd one and hope to be done by the middle of the week.
Beta Type: SPaG, especially to check my tenses, Brit-pick (not super urgent but would be nice), flow and style as well as continuits and general "does this make sense?" betaing. I like betas who have some experience with betaing and who are willing to tell me when something needs more detail or more explanation but who won't be rude about it. Also: I'm coming at you with this request on short notice, so it'd be A+++ if you can work fast.
Harshness: As long as you're not rude, you can/should be strict.

Subject:Beta for Travelers fic?
Posted by:twistofapen.
Time:1:15 am.
Hi y'all,

I'm looking for someone to beta a Travelers fic - no knowledge of fandom required, as I know we're not a very large bunch. (Though if you do know the show, awesome!) I'm mostly looking for someone to run a SpaG check and look through other technical aspects like flow and incomprehensibility. The fic's about 2k and falls firmly in the h/c genre.

Details:

Username: twistofapen
Fandom: Travelers (TV) - set mid to late Season 2.
Rating of the story: PG
Pairing: gen.
Beta Type: Grammar and Flow.
Harshness: As long as it's constructive criticism, I'd appreciate straightforward honesty.

Comment or send me a PM if interested or if you've got questions. Thanks in advance!

Posted by:sylvaniae.
Time:2:36 pm.

Hi, my name is Lauren, and I am looking for a beta for a Mary/Matthew Crawley fanfic. I'm not quite sure where I want to go yet for my story, so I'd really like a sounding board. I also would like someone who is able to spot plot holes and other problematic issues in the fanfic because I'm good with grammar. If I write something that sounds completely stupid, please tell me. But mainly, I'm looking for some good ideas. Let me know if you can beta this story :)

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.
