Just joined the list from the Wraithbait archive and am in need of a beta.
I'm actually looking for someone that would be interested in being a
beta on a pretty permanent basis (not just for one or two fics).
I have one beta now, but am looking for a second beta for my longer
fics so that they get two good run throughs before I post them.
I'm a slasher and my pairing of choice is McKay/Sheppard but I also
write Rodney/Carson and John/Carson as well as John/Rodney/Carson,
though the majority of my fics are strictly McKay/Sheppard.
- I'd be happy to beta for you - any combination of the above pairings
is good for me! I have a good Atlantis knowledge, as well as the
science and medicine stuff if you want that, and am geeky when it
comes to English and grammar.
Just let me know if you want me!
- Hi everyone,
This is an unusual request, so thanks in advance for your
I am looking for a long term, multiple story audience/beta,
preferably able and willing to work in multiple fandoms, but at the
very least conversant in the SGA universe. For the most part, I
won't need help with grammar or basic writing -- rather, I'm looking
for someone to point out weaknesses in overall story structure
and/or characterization and to generally make the story the best it
possibly can be.
If you are interested and/or would like a writing sample please let
me know. Despite the unusual nature of this request, I feel there
will be a lot of benefits to a long-term writer/beta relationship,
not the least of which would be higher quality fanfic and a more
equitable level of collaboration (and credit).
To give you an idea of what would be involved, here are the stories
I'm currently working on:
SGA stories currently under development:
Unconventional Beauty: Beauty and the Beast, featuring Rodney as
Beauty and John as the Beast. Also, because you can't have Rodney
without contemporary science, lots of historically accurate 1800's
scientific detail. Will run 5,000-10,000 words, be NC-17, and
Untitled Harlequin AU: Rodney's a social inept astrophysicist/CEO.
John's a caterer that Rodney has hired to play host at all of his
corporate events. I'm sure you can guess what will happen next.
Still in the pre-writing stage, but will probably be around 40,000
words, NC-17, and and will definitely feature McShep.
Other fandom stories currently under develoment:
Switch: Fastlane (Van/Deaq, rating not yet determined)
Untitled 10th Kingdom fic: ~3,000 words, post-mini-series
- Hi there,
I'm looking for a beta to proofread a Carson and Laura story. It's 7,683 words, with a NC-17 rating. It focuses on their developing relationship.
I'm fine with characterisation, plot etc., but I tend to have a blind spot when it comes to ellipses at the end of a sentence. Nevertheless, a general punctuation check would be most welcome. I want to be able to post my second story without any errors.
If anyone's interested, please let me know.
Many thanks :)
