Potentially long-term Beta Reader Wanted
I am looking for a mature adult beta-reader for a novella/novel length Snape/Hermione fanfiction. It is very much adult-only content and the initial portion is coerced consent and graphically written, so trigger warnings galore. Happy ending eventually, but much angst as well.

I play fast and loose with Canon from the time of the trio's capture in the Malfoy Manor in DH, but do follow most of canon except for the epilogue.

Beta must be proficient in HP BOOK canon, please! The films are simply not sufficient. I prefer someone who is proficient in British spelling, customs and idioms. I need help pointing out any glaring plot-holes, editing for clarity when I ramble on tangents, and basic grammar, typos, etc.

I work full time with another job on the side and have kids at home, so I am very busy and would not be spamming you constantly, and would not be able to get back to you immediately after you send me suggestions/corrections. The story is nearly finished, but is currently over 150 MS Word pages in size 12 Arial font. It is rough-drafted to the end, so you need not worry that this will be an abandoned work.

Beta wanted for SSHG Gift Fest fic
It's due at the beginning of November.

Rating is PG, for slight references to Death Eater-related and war related violence. It's around 3200 words.

I would like to share it via Google Docs if anybody is willing. I'll need it checked over for SPaG and Britpick.

Beta for two fics needed
I need a beta for two fics. One is due on the 14th, and the other due on the 15th. I would prefer to send them via Google Docs to be checked for SPaG and maybe some other suggestions for the plots.

The first one is for Dramione Duet (due August 14) and the beta can't be a participant.
It's rated NC-17, around 2200 words. No non-con/rape, bdsm, although there is some exhibitionism.

The second one is due August 15th.
It's rated NC-17, around 2100 words, and the pairings are Harry/Astoria, Draco/Ginny, Harry/Ginny, Draco/Astoria.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Name: rosevalleynb
Rating of fic: Somewhere between PG-13 and R? (1 f-bomb, slang used for sex)
Pairings in fic: Katie Bell/Marcus Flint
Any warnings about fic content: none
Where to contact you: reply here, or send me a pm, or email me at rosevalleynb@gmail.com
Any other important info the beta should know:
Written for the hphet. My due date/ posting date for this fic June 10. Word count is 1490. I work in Word and prefer to communicate over email.
Since I'm not a native speaker and Grammarly does not pick up all the errors, I need someone to nitpick over SPaG and maybe some Brit-picking if you're able (not a must).

Hi, Beta reader needed for AU fic.

Name: Igy St. Igy
Age: 29
Rating of fic: (i.e. G, PG, R, etc.) Probably R.
Pairings in fic: I really want to leave this as a surprise, if that's okay? It doesn't happen until really near the end of this novel-length fic.
Any warnings about fic content: (i.e. character death, mpreg, smut, etc.) Might be a bit of erotica, uh, there are OCs but I really hope they're not Mary Sues or Gary Stus (there's quite a few OCs, adults and students). There's also a terrible thing that happened to one of the characters that had to do with sex, but I don't want to give away the plot.
Where to contact you: (should they comment in this entry, send an email or IM, or any other form of communication?) Just comment in the entry, or drop me a line at igystigy@gmail.com
Any other important info the beta should know:

This is set in an AU where Harry was never born (sorry, Harry) and Neville Longbottom was the boy who lived. It's good according to me, but it might not be and I'm deluded. It isn't finished, but I've got quite a lot of it written and am working feverishly on even more.

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!

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.

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. :)
