I'd be glad to help you out Elise, I know how it feels when someone leaves you in a bind. Send the story to me in a word attachment, and I'll get it done for you this evening. Don't worry, I'll take care of your work.

Subject: [Beta_Unlimited] Buffy Beta Needed
I'm sorry to do this so last minute, but I keep thinking I've found a beta, who unfortunately doesn't follow through. I've got a oneshot Dawn genfic written for a contest, and the deadline is the first of October. The story's not long -- I'd just need a general look-over. Grammar-wise, plot-wise, whatever your strengths may be. I'd need a short enough turnaround time, probably by Sunday. Would that be possible for anyone? I'd appreciate it greatly! :)
Thanks for listening,
