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 I'm really familiar with:

Doctor Who (9, 11, 12)
Flo from the insurance commercials
The Big Bang Theory
Castle (though only up to the end of the 4th season)
due South
Firefly
Golden Girls
Leverage
The Librarians
Once Upon a Time
Quantum Leap

I am willing to beta for fandoms I'm not familiar with if you don't mind I won't be able to check for OOC.

Contact: Tanya@flickguy.com

Offering: Grammar's my thing, but I'll help you with whatever you need.

Turnaround Time: Usually a few days for a shorter fic. Longer for longer. I also won't be able to beta until after the first of September because I'm in the middle of a huge edit of a big bang story that's due at the end of the month.

Dealbreakers: Pretty much any kink you have to warn for, excessive violence, torture--especially of animals
