Pairings in fic: Harry/Draco
Warnings: smut, fluff, top!Draco, bottom!Harry
Where to contact: leave a reply to this message
Other information: Hiya! I'm writing a fic for Dracotops_harry, and I really need a beta to check spelling and grammar and to tell me if there's anything glaringly wrong with the story. The deadline for the fest is the 19th of March, and I'd love to have it done before then, but I am very bad at deadlines. I haven't finished the fic yet, but it'll probably be ~40k. I have written the first chapter (of 4) so I can send that as soon as I have a beta! If you are available/willing I will be eternally grateful!

Beta wanted for Harry/Draco project
I'd like a beta to help me with a project that has been in the works for a very long time. The info is as follows:

Pairing: Harry/Draco
Rating: NC-17
Word count: It's a chaptered fic that I estimate will be around 30k
Warnings: None, though it's an AU

As mentioned, this is going to be a chaptered fic. It's not being written for a fest, so there's no time pressure. Mostly, I need someone who can be really patient, because the writing of this fic is very slow. That said, I have the first 10k written down, which I figure is a good enough place to start.

If you're interested, comment below or PM me!

I'm looking to have a min of two betas. So it's important to get along. You need to be able to bounce ideas around. There will be a lot of mythology (from all around the world) and species in the fic--so if you have some knowledge in that--Yay Bonus!

Beta for HD Tropes Fest
Name: Sara Bennett (aka glittering_git)
Rating of fic: R
Pairings in fic: mainly Harry/Draco
Where to contact you: I can be contacted here or emailed at saraybennett@gmail.com
Any other important info the beta should know: I know this is sort of last minute, but I'm incredibly new to this whole writing fan fic thing. The fic is due by July 15, but I hope to be completely done with it by the 10th. It will probably be around 15-20k. I'm willing to beta other work in return. Please, please let me know if you can help. Thanks!

[kb_weasley]
Name: KB-Weasley
Rating of fic: PG
Pairings in fic: mainly Ron/Hermione, though Ron/OC and Hermione/OC as well
Any warnings about fic content: hurt, angst, language
Where to contact you: Comment on entry will work just fine
Any other important info the beta should know: A post-war Ron/Hermione fic that will span over a couple of years. Not strictly Ron/Hermione, as previously mentioned. More a fic of them "finding themselves" apart and then together. Very hurt/comfort/angst/ish. Other characters will appear (Harry, Ginny, George, etc.) Need help mainly with constructing fluid and clear storyline that makes sense to readers. I tend to get jumbled in thought processes and writing and it makes sense to me, but not to everyone else. I have most of the story mapped out and planned and outlined, just need help getting down so that it's coherent and comprehensible.

p.s. I'm a slower worker with a busy schedule. I'd get the story and the progress I've made to you in pieces and probably not as frequent as either of us would hope. But it will get done, one way or another.

Thanks.

Seeking Beta for Developing Fic
Hi! So, I'm currently in the process of writing a new fic. I'll post the general idea below, but I'm still kicking around a lot of ideas. I need someone I can throw snippets or chapters at who can then give me feedback. I'm mostly looking for someone to help me with the flow of the story, continuity, staying true to the universe, and keep me from over-complicating things. I can grammar and spell check myself, for the most part. (I AM leaving open the possibility of explicit smut scenes in this story, I really don't know. I can, however, get a secondary beta for those parts if you need. I can summarize any plot or story-centric happenings within the scene. But I like what effects intimacy can have on both stories and character development.)

I'm hoping for this to be a LONG story. Minimum 40k words. The concept I'm building this on isn't a simple solve-and-done type deal.

OH! Last question! Are you from the UK? One of the things I'm hoping to do is NOT over-Americanize the story. I don't feel the need to drench it in British lingo, but I don't want my character saying things they would never say because of the culture differences.

Characters: Hermione Granger (I'm planning on it likely being George or Charlie, though nothing is totally set here.)
Time frame: 5 years post-war
Goal: Overhaul of the Hogwarts Houses
How: (I'll save this for further conversation if you're interested)
Why: After continuing her SPEW project to the point of getting several pieces of legislation through the Ministry, Hermione has decided to pursue the course most of her friends had been expecting for years. However, on her way to an interview in Hogwarts, Hermione stumbles upon a frighteningly familiar display in the halls of her alma mater. Following the interview, which is all but formality, Hermione finds herself contemplating what will soon become her new pet project. Overhauling the houses of Hogwarts that had shaped her and her friends' childhoods.

Seeking a beta for a light H/D fic
Beta found, thank you!
Name: TwistedM
Age: well over 21
Rating of fic: NC-17
Pairings in fic: Harry/Draco
Any warnings about fic content: Note the "NC-17" but otherwise, no warnings. It is light and cute.
Where to contact: Please comment on this entry, or send an email to <1twistedmiracle @ gmail . com>

Any other important info the beta should know:
I have written a fic for an H/D fest and would like help from an experienced beta. A person who was able to Britpick at the same time would be a real find, but that would be a bonus, not a necessity.

The fic itself is pretty dang dirty, but also lighthearted and cute. It's right around 11,000 words and due October 1.

If we've never "met" I might ask you to point me toward something you've written or beta'd before. :)

Britpicking for a 30,000+ word fic
I am looking for someone to britpick a story for the H/D Pottermore Fair on HD_Fanfair.  The story is still a work in progress at about 20,000 words.  It will almost certainly end up over 30,000.  I have a deadline of September 7th, but I've already asked for an extention of a couple weeks.  There are no common squicks in the story, and I don't expect it to even reach an R rating as it's working out to be pre-slash.  If you're interested, please PM me.

Need a third beta
"And They DIdn't Live Happily Ever After"
Rating: NC-17
Length: 67 chapters (chapter 51 - 117) - but if you want to beta for a few chapters or the whole rest of the fic, I'm willing to put betas into rotation when one wants to bow out.

Needs: I need beta work for punctuation, the odd typo I missed, maybe add a helping verb if I dropped one or change the tense of a verb if I accidentally put it in the wrong tense.



Yes, the monster WIP that everyone thought abandoned is complete.  I have just sent chapter 51 off to my first beta.  When I was posting back in 2004-2006, I liked having three betas so that very little was flagged, if anything, by Ashwinder mods for correction.

I currently have two betas already lined up, but would like a third once again.

So if you are interested in being a beta, be it for a few chapters or more, let me know.  If I get more than one response, if the first beta only wants to do a  few chapters then bow out, then I'll bring the next in line.

No, you don't have to read chapters 1-50 to beta for me.  This thing is complete and I've done one last whole read thorugh to make sure no plot holes or contraditions or plots are left unresolved.

Chapters vary between 10-27 pages, usually about the 15-19 page range.

I have various SS/HG 100-500 word drabbles that need beta work
<p>I have various drabbles I have posted to GrangerSnape100 that I need a beta to pick through, to clean up enough so that it's up to Petulant Poetess' standards, especially where my comma usage is concerned, for long term archinve purposes.

You don't have to take them on all at once, but take them in small managable chunks of a few drabbles at a time.

Longest drabble I have is 500 words (5 x 100), shortest is 100.  In total, 15 drabble sets.

None of them have had any beta work done to them.

Rating varies from G to NC-17.</p>

HP Dark!Harry (30K+) beta request
Name: George
My age: 22

Rating of fic: NC-17 to be safe. It's probably more like PG-13 with some rough edges.
Pairings in fic: I don't have any pairings, mainly because Harry Potter is 12. If anything, I guess I fixate on the chemistry between Harry Potter and Severus Snape... but seriously, he is a child.
Genre: Dark angst, adventure.
Any warnings about fic content: There's some child abuse and neglect. Also, Harry Potter goes a little crazy.

Where to contact you: PM me on LJ. Later, we can switch over to Gmail and G-Drive.

Any other important info the beta should know: I'm just giving the heads up, this story is intense. There are a lot of complicated, well-thought ideas going into it. I've written 70% of the story (30K), but it's far from polished... I'm looking for a beta who is a real hard-on about plot and character development, foreshadowing, and possible scenes to add. Vague advice doesn't work for me, at this point, I need really specific suggestions. Most of all, I'd appreciate someone who will listen to everything I want to do and help me bring that to life.

I don't need help with spelling or grammar, so if that is your strength then please ignore me. You should also know that my writing style itself is heavy on dialogue. "Show, don't tell"- that's the way I like it. I avoid lengthy, wordy, and retrospective writing. Please share these preferences.

Summary: The plot is based on the question: What are horcruxes and how aware are they? In my story, during second year, Potter's horcrux awakens and communicates with the diary horcrux. Meanwhile, Potter's own psyche slowly breaks down. That's basically... the short version of the short version.

This is an extensive project of mine, so please be open to the long-term. I'm hoping for someone professional, intense, and thought-provoking. PM me with your strengths/weaknesses, as well as 3 questions you want answered by me before we begin. Thank you all for reading this, peace.
