      Hey, I am currently in the middle of writing my first piece of
      fiction, which is currently being posted on ff.net. I have posted the
      first chap on wraithbait, but then was abandoned by my beta.

      So I am looking for someone that could read over my story, primarily
      for punctuation,as this is my biggest weakness, but also someone that
      might be able to help me improve my writing.

      I am currently writing a gen piece, with Sheppard whumping, and lots
      of angst. I would love to find a beta who could help me with this fic,
      but who also might be willing to help me with future fics

            He flashed her his trademark, lopsided grin before he stepped through the gate on what should have been a simple trading mission. Teyla had traded with the people of MX4-238 for many years and had judged them to be an honest, peaceful people.


            Even so every time he stepped through the gate she became nervous and on edge. Worried that this time he might not be coming back, he had had so many close calls over the past year that she felt she had a right to worry. Even if she did make the gate technicians life a misery every time he and his team was off world.


            However, this time it seemed that her worries had been justified. Colonel Sheppards team had come barrelling through the gate barely an hour after they had gated off world. She had been in her office when she had heard the now, unfortunately all too familiar warning


            Unscheduled off world activation She had made her way quickly to the balcony overlooking the gate room, praying that it would not be Major Sheppards team that emerged from the gate. It seemed however, that her prayers were not to be answer as the gate technician informed her,


            Maam, Im receiving SGA 1s IDC


            Lower the shield She ordered, her mind momentarily wondering as to what kind of trouble the Colonel and his team had managed to get themselves into this time.


            She watched as Colonel Sheppards team came barrelling through the gate, unceremoniously landing in a heap on the gate room floor. There was a flurry of activity around her that Elizabeth barely registered as she stood staring in horror at the bruised and bloodied but ultimately unconscious forms of Teyla, Lieutenant Ford and Dr Rodney McKay. Elizabeths eyes darted around wildly, desperately searching for a fourth figure, that of Colonel Sheppard, however he was nowhere to be found.


            As she made her way down to the floor of the gate room, still lost in her own thoughts, her shock at seeing the unconscious figures before her quickly turned into anger, she knew that it was irrational but she thought to herself, How the hell could they just leave Sheppard behind? Her anger at the team was quickly pushed from her mind as more important thoughts took their place. Where was he? Was he ok? Was he in the same state, or worse, as his team? Was he even alive? No, she quickly became angry at herself for even thinking that he might not be alive. Of course he was alive and they were going to bring him home. She barely registered the figure of Dr Carson Beckett, running towards her, closely followed by what seemed the entire medical staff. She had no idea how long she had been standing there, lost in her thoughts. She hadnt even heard anyone call for a med team.


            What the hell happened Came Carsons familiar Scottish brogue, pulling her from her thoughts, as he ran over to the three figures littering the gate room.


            I dont know was Elizabeths reply. Carson immediately began checking his patients one by one.


            Deeming Teyla to be most in need of medical attention, considering she was bleeding profusely from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the abdomen, Beckett called for two orderlies to assist in him in manoeuvring the Athosian onto one of the waiting gurneys.


            Ok, we need to get her into surgery stat came Becketts controlled, professional reply.


            Damn Elizabeth thought to herself, why the hell couldnt she be like that. Every time that a team came back injured, she was a complete wreck, her mind always wandering to the worst case scenario.


            She watched silently as Teyla was wheeled away at a rapid pace towards the infirmary, and the waiting OR.


            Beckett, ever the professional quickly turned his attention to Ford and McKay. Checking both unconscious men over before placing their prone forms gently onto gurneys, with the help of several more of his nurses, before they too were wheeled away towards the infirmary.


            Beckett stood, looking perplexed at the very anxious Elizabeth.


            I dont understand why theyre both unconscious. There are no external injuries. I cannee see any reason for them to be unconscious


            Well, then why are they unconscious? She snapped, her voice harsher then she had intended. She needed them to wake up and tell her what had happened to them on that damned planet, and where the Colonel was so that she could send a rescue team to bring him home.


            Carson, a little taken aback by her outburst replied dejectedly, I dont know but Ill do all I can. His eyes scanning the gate room he added Wheres the Colonel? I bloody hope he isnt trying to avoid his post mission check-up. I know he doesnt like them, but it is nee like him to leave his team, especially when theyre sick. I usually have to chuck him out of the infirmary. Carson catching that Elizabeth was staring, longingly at the stargate stopped talking, becoming more and more worried by the second, by the conspicuous absence of the Colonel.


            There was a long uncomfortable silence, that seemed to last forever, as Elizabeth stood, eyes transfixed on the inactive gate, wishing desperately to hear the familiar whoosh of an incoming wormhole and for Sheppard to come running through and shout April fools. Eventually resigning to the fact that however much she wanted him to he wasnt just going to come walking through the gate she tore herself away and locked eyes with the now extremely worried Carson Beckett.


            I dont know If he had not been listening intently for her response he would have missed it, it was so quiet He never came back through the gate Her mood quickly changed as she snapped I need his team to wake up so I can find out what happened. We never leave a man behind She echoed the words that Sheppard had used to her on so many occasions. He had risked his life to save the lives of so many others and now it was his life that needed saving, and at the moment she had no way of helping him.


            Beckett ignoring his own emotions at the news that the Military commander of Atlantis, someone who had become a good friend after saving his butt so many times was MIA, never letting his carefully constructed doctor façade slip replied, Ill do everything that I can for his team. He turned away dejectedly from Elizabeth, not sure if she had heard him because she was once again staring transfixed, seemingly in a world of her own at the inactive stargate, as he made his way back to the infirmary and his three waiting patients.

              Hi. I've just taken on an absolutely huge challenge, and signed up for the NaNoWriMo challenge. I've just started writing my first ever novel, which will be a SGA story. It's a team story, which will probably, eventually involve most of the characters in Atlantis. I've just got the first chapter done, and it comes in at 4083 words. I'm aiming for the 50,000 words by the end of the month, but hope to post the novel as I go along. So I'm looking for someone that can primarily check it over for any spelling mistakes, and punctuation. I'm not bad but im not perfect either.
               
              Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

Sheppard and Rodney are captured off world, and are implanted with devices which mean that they can't sleep. I was doing some research, and found out that the longest anyones ever stayed away is 11 days. So the reason for the devices is to basically push them to their limits to get information out of them. However they're going to be rescued after a couple of days on the planet, and taken back to Atlantis, where Beckett discovers that he can't remove the devices. And they're basically going to go through all of the different symptoms of severe sleep deprivation such as hallucinations, and paranoia, etc.

It's a team story, which will probably, eventually involve most of the characters in Atlantis. I've just got the first chapter done, and it comes in at 4083 words. I'm aiming for the 50,000 words by the end of the month, but hope to post the novel as I go along. So I'm looking for someone that can primarily check it over for any spelling mistakes, and punctuation. I'm not bad but im not perfect either.

                       

                      Any help anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.

                        Hey Larkin.

                         

                        I haven't had any other offers of a beta, so if you are still willing to give me a hand it would be very much appreciated.

                         

                        Thanks

                        I’m not brilliant, but if no one else offers to take it on, I wouldn’t mind giving you a hand, I can at least pick up most mistakes J

                        Just let me know

                        Hi. Yeah. There is no pairing, it will be a team fic, although it will be mostly focused on Rodney and Sheppard. It has a K rating. Sheppard and Rodney are captured off world, and are implanted with devices which mean that they can't sleep. I was doing some research, and found out that the longest anyones ever stayed away is 11 days. So the reason for the devices is to basically push them to their limits to get information out of them. However they're going to be rescued after a couple of days on the planet, and taken back to Atlantis, where Beckett discovers that he can't remove the devices. And they're basically going to go through all of the different symptoms of severe sleep deprivation such as hallucinations, and paranoia, etc.

                          Hello, everyone

                          My usual beta's a wee bit snowed under at the moment, so I'm looking
                          for a stand in.

                          It's for a challenge request response over at Slashfest, someone to
                          check punctuation, spelling, grammar, and plot.

                          This is a Roman SGA AU fic, NC17; it's 10 chapters and an epilogue
                          long, about 26,000 words. It's also a slave fic, McShep, with a
                          little Carson/Radek and Teyla/Ronon as well. It features implied non-
                          con, physical abuse. It features implied deaths of both original
                          characters and canon characters, but it's not a death-fic.

                          The only drawback (sorry, I know this is a tall order) is that so I
                          can revise and make any recommended changes in time to post the fic
                          for the challenge closing, I'd really need it back by say the 7th to
                          the 10th of December?

                          Hope someone can help; if anyone wants some more information first,
                          please email me.

                          Many thanks in advance

                            Hi

                            I'm looking for someone to beta a 3/4 possiblely 5 part story (it may
                            end up with two endings)

                            It's a rodney mpreg, which may end up McShep or McMichtell (hence the
                            two endings.) It's slightly angsty but hopefully with a happy ending(s).

                            I've only written the first 3 parts but i was hoping someone will be
                            willing to go over what i've written. i'm not the best speller and
                            it's my second attempt at writing a SGA story so if anything is out of
                            character i'm happy for any suggestions.

                            thanks

                              If someone is willing, I would like some help with a fic I've been working on. To be blunt, I need someone to tell me if it's any good or not -- and therefore, if I should continue to write it or not. Right now, the story is about 3600 words, with a prologue and the first chapter. Obviously, it is a WIP and I have no idea when I'm going to be able to finish. Of course, if you can also check grammar mistakes and such, I'll be very grateful.
                               
                              The rating of the story is currently FRT/PG-13. It will be slash eventually (though I'd say that the written parts are very much gen), and it is centered around an OMC.
                               
                              On a final note; please, I need someone that will really tell me if it is worth to continue the story or not. So, if it isn't good, I want someone who can thrash it. Really.
                               
                              Thanks,

                                  Hi folks!

                                  I could use a beta reader for a McShep slash, post Tao of Rodney fic.
                                  It's 1500 words. And kinda schmoopy. I basically just want a
                                  read-through to catch any grammar/spelling errors and any thoughts you
                                  have like 'dude, this is so out of character, try this instead' and
                                  whatnot. I don't have Word, but I do have WordPad and Notepad.

                                  This isn't my first fic, and I usually just go by the seat of my pants
                                  and go unbeta'd, but there's this thing, and it's called 'patience', I
                                  guess I should try to learn that, lol.

                                  Also, I'd like someone who is open to working with me in the future. I
                                  only write fics every few months at the most, but I think a go-to
                                  fresh pair of eyes would be wicked beneficial. And randomly, I'm
                                  working on a McShep AU where zombies exist. So liking violence? A
                                  probable plus. And I don't usually go into NC-17 sexin. So as the Bush
                                  song goes, there's no sex in my violence. *cough*

                                  I'm going to quit rambling now.

                                  Thanks for your time.

                                    Having given up on having finishing the longer story I'm writing anytime soon, I've written a short 2,000 or so word J/R stroy.
                                     
                                    Is anyone around for general read through/ encouragement/ advise?
                                     
                                    My first finished story (Ever!) and would like to get feedback soon so I don't lose the goldern glow of creativity.
                                     
                                    Email me at madmandy1@... and I'll send it over.

                                      I am in need of a beta for a Rodney-centric fic.

                                      I'm in need of someone who can give me plot and characterization analysis and not grammar and
                                      punctuation (although, if such errors are found, it's always appreciated if they're pointed out).

                                      Length-wise, the story I'm writing is going to be in the ballpark of 25000 words, with 40
                                      parts - each about 6250 words.

                                      It's going to be set post-"Tao of Rodney", though some mention of "Sunday" will be made in
                                      regards to Carson's character. (And "The Game" *might* be mentioned, but in an off-hand, general
                                      conversation sort of way.) The pairings are going to be Rodney/John (in a
                                      just-starting-to-get-into-a-relationship way), Rodney/OFC, Rodney/Chuck/Lorne and John/Carson.
                                      The rating will be NC-17.

                                      The basic idea of the story is that Rodney is stranded on another planet and goes native.
                                      The majority of the first half of the fic deals with this (with a few parts focusing on the
                                      "Meanwhile, back in Atlantis...") He ends up staying there for about 3 & 1/3 years and makes a
                                      new life for himself there before people from Atlantis are able to make it back, with help from a
                                      mutual trade relation. Once back, Rodney has trouble reacclimating himself to Atlantis and feels
                                      himself stuck between two worlds. Then, he gets a plea for help from his adopted world and feels
                                      compelled to go back and help them, taking back-up with him (as well as a means to get home this
                                      time).

                                      If anyone's interested, I can give more in-depth information.

                                      And I'm planning on having the first part done by the end of next Wednesday.


                                      Thanks,
                                      Adrian

                                        In need of a beta for a slash piece pairing: Lorne/Ronon, R
                                        It's an AU take off of S4 episode of Last Man Standing. The word count is: 3049 No major rush but I'd like to post a beta'd version before the new year.

                                        Strong points needed: grammar, tenses, and commas.

                                        If you're interested please contact me here or email me privately at: denyce36 at yahoo.com

                                        Thanks in advance!!
