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.

I'm "Morbane" at both AO3 and at gmail - email is preferred.

I am happy to beta for SPAG / flow / general sense in fandoms I don't know. However, my canon familiarity is as follows:

The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)
Person of Interest (TV)

Vague / some familiarity:

Animorphs - Katherine A. Applegate - some books only
Babylon 5
Battlestar Galactica (2003)

Chalion Saga - Lois McMaster Bujold
Discworld - Terry Pratchett - some books only
Doctor Who & Related Fandoms - Doctors 9-11(incomplete) only
Ender Series - Orson Scott Card

His Dark Materials - Philip Pullman
Howl's Moving Castle - All Media Types - movie & book 1
The Martian - All Media Types - movie only
Marvel Cinematic Universe - haven't seen Dark World or Hulk
The Middleman (TV)

The Social Network (2010)
Star Wars - All Media Types - Episodes IV, V, VI, VII only
Supernatural - up to season 8
Young Wizards - Diane Duane - some books only

Turnaround time: Please estimate at least 1 day per 2k, though I may be faster depending how I'm going with other commitments. I probably won't be able to help with any story above 15k unless you want only the lightest of checks. I will not be able to look at any new stories after September 20, due to Yuletide.

I will beta any subjects/themes, but I appreciate getting a heads-up about uncomfortable content, such as infidelity or torture, and especially, graphic violence involving hands.

I'm most comfortable working in Microsoft Word or Google Docs, but I can be flexible if there's another format you prefer.
