In search of a beta for a Katie/Marcus Fic! [25 Oct 2016|04:42pm]

Name: rosevalleynb
Rating of fic: I'm guessing PG-13 (sorry, I'm pants at labeling)
Pairings in fic: Katie/ Marcus, established relationship
Any warnings about fic content: it's all very clean-ish, just a bit touching over clothes. It's all fluffy.
Where to contact you: please pm me or email me; rosevalleynb@gmail.com
Any other important info the beta should know: It's a no-war AU, so Katie isn't hospitalised in her 7th year. The fic (approx. 2500 words) is my entry for an anonymous fest with a dead-line of November 20th. I need someone to Brit-pick for me and check grammar, flow, etc. since English is not my first language.

Pairing: Harry/Draco

Regular beta for drarry fics needed! [03 Oct 2016|09:14am]

Hey, guys!
I was wondering if one of you English speakers could help me regularly with my fics. I have an on-going fic that is currently on chapter 8, and it is almost finishing, but I wrote it in Portuguese and my first attempt on translating it was a long time ago and I can see SO MUCH horrible mistakes I did. I am re-translating it, and I need someone to give it an eye and help me with brit-picking, general flow and eventual mistakes. It will be kind of a journey, since I'd have to begin from chapter one, but... Is there someone there willing to help me? <3

The fic is a Drarry, bottom!Draco, Muggle au. Draco is a doctor, Harry is a lawyer. It's kind of a family fic, we have Scorpius being cute and Albus as a tiny baby. There's Romione too, and Rose and Hugo. It's very fluffy, slow built, but will eventually have sex (currently writing it).

I really wanted a beta because I want to much to post this fiction on AO3 and LJ, but I don't feel like posting something bad written (or in this case, bad translated).

Thanks in advance!

Found: Femslash Beta Needed [01 Oct 2016|08:55pm]


Pairing: HP Femslash
Words: 3k (ish)
Rating: E (but a fairly mild E)
Warnings: Smut

I need a femslash beta for a fic that isn't due until the end of the month, but I would like to submit early if possible. It's a rare enough pair that specifying it here with the timeframe will 100% give me away, but it is consenting adults of the same/Harry's gen (ish) so it isn't that rare. There is smut but not super kinky. Currently about 3000 words and more likely to get shorter rather than longer with final edits.

Mostly just needs a SPAG check. If you're available please reply here or email me on kitty at kittyaugust dot com.

Thank you!

Beta wanted for Harry/Draco project [20 Sep 2016|10:57pm]

I'd like a beta to help me with a project that has been in the works for a very long time. The info is as follows:

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: It's a chaptered fic that I estimate will be around 30k
Warnings: None, though it's an AU

As mentioned, this is going to be a chaptered fic. It's not being written for a fest, so there's no time pressure. Mostly, I need someone who can be really patient, because the writing of this fic is very slow. That said, I have the first 10k written down, which I figure is a good enough place to start.

If you're interested, comment below or PM me!

beta needed for next gen fest! [05 Sep 2016|04:53pm]

Hello, folk.

I'm writing a Cursed Child compliant Albus/Scorpius (not big spoilers, though, mostly a follow-up) for
the hp_nextgen_fest comm. Submissions are due October 17th.

And yes, you guessed it, I was looking for a beta.

The fic itself shouldn't be too much work, what I've written yet is mostly teenage fluff and awkwardness, and perhaps there'll be some light smut too, but we are not there yet, so... Also it won't be too long. I'm guessing around 2k.

The biggest issue I have is that I'm not a native speaker of the language (you may or may not have guessed that, too), and it's my first attempt ever at writing engligh. I've been reading english-fics for a couple of years now and I have no problems there, but I still struggle somewhat when it comes to actually express myself and put my thoughts into a coherent and cohesive sentence. So there you go. Kind of a challenge, huh?

If anybody is willing to try, my e-mail address is lemmonpieforever@gmail.com (or you could contact me here at lj).

Thanks a lot!!!

Found - Harry/Draco Beta(s) Wanted [13 Aug 2016|02:25pm]

I will need a beta or betas for the following fests (because I'm silly and when I dive into a new fandom I go for the deep end).

  • hd_familyfest - due 1 Sept (aiming to submit early, looking to start beta/editing around 21 Aug)

  • hd_hurtfest - due 24 Sept (aiming to submit in the first week of Sept)

  • hd_erised - due 7 Nov (I actually need an alpha read and a beta read for this one - I need some help to bounce ideas off for the story plan/structure as well as a final SPaG check)

  • hd_owlpost x 3 - due 11 Nov (aiming for early Oct subs, also pinch hitting)

I am also considering picking up either H/D or femslash prompts for:I prefer to work with a few different people so I don't feel like a total burden - thus I'm not asking for one person to do ALL of these but rather looking for a couple of people who might be keen to help with one or two each?

Beta needed for hp_drizzle [06 Aug 2016|05:42pm]

The piece is due on the 15th. It's an NC-17 rated Harry/Draco piece, a little over 1000 words long. Spelling, grammar, and flow check is all. No kinks -- just plain vanilla sex. I work in .rtf and my computer does not like google docs (also I don't have word so comments sent in a fancy format I can't see.)

Could anyone help?

Pinch Hit Femmeslash Beta Needed! [31 Jul 2016|08:08pm]

I am still writing the fic at the time of writing this post - but I'm on the wrong side of the world and need a quick response if possible.

I've put my hand up for a last minute fill and will need a beta who can do a quick turn around. I'm usually pretty easy to beta for. I'm a Kiwi so don't need much britpicking and I have a degree in English so my basic grammar and spelling is pretty strong although I am a typo fiend. I am also not at all precious and don't need to be carefully stepped around - give me your feedback as directly as you want, I won't be offended and I'll take it on board and do what I can to make my work more reader friendly.

Pairing: Ginny/Luna (+ background Draco/Harry)
Word count: est 2000 to 5000~
Rating: M
Warnings: Emotional infidelity (no action but due to the prompt the story starts with Harry/Ginny)
Format: GoogleDocs is my preference but I can send it to you as an MS Word doc if need be.

Best contact is to email me on kitty at kittyaugust dot com but I will be checking back on this post too.

Well and truely found - you guys are the best and I love everyone in this bar.

Wolfstar Beta Needed [28 Jul 2016|09:46pm]

I'm in need of a beta for a novel series length fanfic about Remus and Sirius, a lifestory. It's a verging on epic and I'd like to start posting the first few parts in the near future.

It does have some triggers. It is a slash fanfic, mostly Remus/Sirius, with some other pairings in there too. There are some scenes of child abuse and themes of recovery from abuse. And there's some angst in general.

It is long so I don't mind if you only want to beta some of it in the end.

I need general critique and reassurance that characterisation, etc works. Grammar isn't much of a problen but I've pobably got typos in there! I'm writing it with a friend so some help in making sure our style matches would also help.

You can contact me on wolfchild666@gmail.com
