Seeking a Beta Reader - Dramione [24 Nov 2016|08:35pm]

I'm looking for a beta reader for a one-time or ongoing (your preference) basis.

I appreciate SPaG and flow comments but not suggestions for plot or characterization. I write book-compliant fics (with the exception of the Epilogue) and I have no idea what Pottermore has done to canon. I've been around the fanfic block a long time, under many names. Unfortunately, most of my beta contacts have moved on. I like Lumione and Dramione. On rare occassion, I'll write a steamy NC17 or R fic but not much lately.

Currently, I have a four-chapter Dramione complete that I'd love to have a second pair of eyes look over before posting. I have another Dramione (3 chapters) with a beta but it's been awhile and she isn't getting back to me.

If you're interested in one or both fics or have a question, please comment here or drop me an email at this username (at) yahoo.com.

Urgent: Beta needed! [16 Nov 2016|11:25pm]


Hi all,

I'm (still) looking for a beta (or two) for the two following fics (SPAG only):

1) Christmassy fic, about 1,500 words, Harry/George

2) longer fic with winter/Christmas theme, ~17k in length, Snape/Harry

I would be so grateful if one of you could help me out. Due dates are next week, extensions might(!) be possible (if I beg nicely). <3

Beta request for a general-audiences Sirius Black AU fic [16 Nov 2016|10:04pm]
I need help from someone who could help me clean up a fic. As I'm not native speaker, I need most help with grammar and vocabulary, and also with HP (canon) world because I'm relatively new to this fandom.
The fic I'd like betaed is only slightly longer than 8 pages, with two more chapters still on the way. It is mostly Sirius-centric, and when I say "alternative timeline" heed my warning - things go rapidly against what we see in canon. No "mature" content in it, no considerable character death.

In the future I'll also need help with translating my relatively good English grammar to authentic house-elf grammar. Even if you don't have time to read a whole fic for me, help with Kreacher's lines would ne greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering!

FOUND: Beta(s) needed for two submissions to the Mini Fest [12 Nov 2016|09:20pm]

Hi! :)

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend...

Anyway, I'm in need of at least one lovely person who would check my submissions to the mini_fest, they are both one-shots with different pairings.

1) First one-shot is a NC-17 story, and I'd rather not name the pairing here—submissions are anonymous, and the pairing is rather rare (the characters aren't though), so it would be telling. It's a fluff piece. Length: approx. 5,670 words.
I only need spelling and grammar checked, as well as some brit-picking.

2) is a Drarry one-shot, the rating is more likely PG-13 upwards, as it contains a short more explicit paragraph, and some mentions of implied sexual actions. It's a fluff/humour piece. Length: approx. 6,670 words.
I mostly need spelling and grammar checked, as well as some brit-picking; however, I'd love some feedback on the characterisations as well, as it plays in an era I don't usually write in.

I can give more details in a PM if you're interested.
