I am in need of a beta reader for my Stargate/Pretender crossover fan fic. If it is possible, I also need help figuring out a title for it. I will give credit to you for betaing it for me. :) :cool: Your help would be much appriecated.

You might try posting a request for a beta in a thread that discusses similar tastes to your writing. I posted one in the Jack/Sam shipper thread because my fics are J/S ship. I found a beta pretty quickly that way.

This is also an excellent website that someone on this BB recommended to me and it has beta readers listed on it as well as great resources.

I too am searching for a beta reader...I tried the link above, but didn't see anyone there that stood out and made me want to send my story to them. Also, my story is AU (or will be if I turn it into a continuing series) and I'm not sure there's really a discussion thread for that. Or is there and I just didn't see it?

Anyway...I'm willing to trade beta services. I think I'm pretty good with grammar and spelling. I also know Stargate very well (not to mention I have all the episodes to use for reference!).

I'd be willing to beta SciFinut's story - even though I don't know a whole lot about Pretender.

Thanks for the idea and the website. I do not have it up right now. I can send you a copy of the first Chapter by email. Just to let you know that it is a work in progress and you need to know a little about the show The Pretender to understand it. Again thanks for your help.

I finally remembered. I did post it somewhere for others to read. it was at another Stargate site called Chevron Nine. Here is the site where The fanfiction is: http://www.chevronnine.com/index.php?board=9;action=display;threadid=650

Chevron Nine is a wonderful site also. Here is the addy for the main site. http://www.chevronnine.com Come join us in the irc chat also.

This is my first attempt at fan fic writing (though definitely not my first attempt at writing) It's doesn't really follow any recent SG1 plots, besides the Furlings, that is. It's a crossover of StarGate and X-files.

Basic synopsis:
Daniel discovers a secret about himself that could lead SG1 and quite by accident, another team who seeks The Truth to a race of much talked about aliens. But are they friendly, or hostile? (mild language)

This is only the first part - it's kind of a cliffhanger - but it will be continued. I'm still working on the second (and possible third) parts. Anyone who'd read it'd be really helpful. I'm willing to beta read - reciprocate if need be.

EDIT: never mind. Got one. :)

Having too many can be confusing.

The question of betareaders got asked on plot bunny adoption and I posted these links, thought they might be helpful for this if it's becoming the betareader thread...
