2016 BETA READER POST

There is still plenty of time left in the writing period, but some of you may already be finished (or close to it), or you may just want to get a beta reader in place for when you do finish. So, if you need a beta reader or would like to volunteer services, please use this post!

While we do not require stories to have a beta reader, we strongly recommend it.

If you're volunteering as a beta, please comment here! Tell us:
  • Which fandoms you can work in (full list of Crossovering fandoms)

  • How to contact you: email, @Twitter, Tumblr, Skype, PM on LJ/DW, etc.

  • If you're offering SPAG, worldbuilding, character, or plot help ... or all four!

  • An estimate of what your turnaround time is

  • Your dealbreakers, aka what you won't beta, e.g., violence, non-con, cheating, mushrooms, talking animals, etc.


If you're looking for a beta, you can leave an anonymous comment here listing the fandoms you need help with. DO NOT REVEAL YOUR INDIVIDUAL ASSIGNMENT.

Anonymous comments will be unscreened and can be replied to by beta volunteers with their contact info.

If you're looking for a beta and are worried about revealing your assignment, you can email the mods and we'll act as go-between on your behalf.

We hope everyone is enjoying the writing process so far, but if you need any assistance, feel free to comment here or e-mail us and we'll do what we can.

Fandoms:

MCU

Miraculous Ladybug
NCIS
Sense8
Star Wars Original Trilogy or Ep VII
Supernatural

How to contact you: Email me at booksmart1@msn.com with your current wordcount and fandoms.

Offering: SPaG is second nature to me, though I'd ask you not to send without doing a basic Word Doc spellcheck. What I can offer for characterization will vary by fandom and the characters you chose, but I did only pick fandoms where I have seen most or all of the canon and generally have a strong grasp on things. I'm good at sentence and paragraph flow, pacing, basically being nitpicky (though I will turn this up or down as requested :)

Turnaround: Will vary based on length, when you email me, and how much work the story needs.

Dealbreakers: I won't beta long torture or rape scenes without H/C, or long psychological violence.
