    Will be looking for a beta at some point in the future for my Enlisted fanfic. I'm pretty good with the whole spelling/grammar thing, but I would need someone to just catch my oopsies and possibly (if they've seen the show) make sure I haven't gone off track with characterization. Familiarity with U.S. military (particularly Army) a plus. Samplings of my other fanfic writings are found in the links in my sig, but bear in mind, they are not recent.

    Oh, and it will probably be MA (graphic), either for sex, emotions, violence, or all three.

I wish you the best of luck, though.

    Can you tell us a little more about your work? You say they're romance, with Jack/Sam--are they sweet, innocent romances, dark romances, suspense, whump, erotica, what? What's the average length of your chapters? I know that's hard to pin-point, but we all tend toward a certain length--mine usually run 2K words up to around 3K, for example. Are they novel-length or novellas, ficlets or flash fics or drabbles or what?
    Sorry for not posting this sooner, alot sooner, i've been going through a lot in the past eighteen months with two deaths in the family, my pet cat was killed, battle legs wounds, infections, blood posioning, stomach gasto problems which the doctors cant work out in the past year as other health issues and it taken it toll on me. In my stories jack and Sam romanic. all my stories are 200 pages plus long

    200+ pages -- that requires a beta with a lot of time on their hands. Perhaps you could also try to find someone in the Sam/Jack thread who might be interested in helping out.

    I have no time for 200+ pages, and I really hate Sam/Jack so that would not go well.

    Looking for someone to beta my rarewomen fic. You can guess by the subject it deals with the ladies of Stargate, more accurately Atlantis. The boys make a brief appearance, but the main characters are Kate, Laura, Elizabeth and Teyla. It's general -- with a hint of Kate/Elizabeth.

    It's not finished yet, as I'm writing the end - which I'm hoping will be done today.

    I'm finished, and the fic rounds down to 2554 words in total. And dare I state I require a beta rather urgently too since the deadline is may 4th (so may the fourth be with you).

    Thank you in advance! Should you accept the challenge you'll be forever in my debt and I shall repay in full.

    I am looking for a second grammar beta-reader (kind of a backup for my existing one who has very little time at the moment) for my story Stargate Aschen. It is a Sam/Jack romance, but also features most of the other characters and lots of adventure. (To be fair, up to now it has been more adventure than romance, but I will still keep calling it that to be on the safe side ) The first 28 chapters are already online, and there are about 20 more coming.

    My problems are mostly grammar, spelling and punctuation. Anybody interested should be willing to read and beta MA-rated chapters, since we are approaching those in the story. Any help would be greatly appreciated, even if it was only a couple of chapters!

    I'd sign on for a couple, whether as a copy editor or more generally.

    Strengths: I've worked as a technical copy editor (BS Mechanical Engineering) on top of my other writing (BA Political Science). Military, and I know my physics and engineering and have an above-layperson grasp of politics and global studies. I've coached/tutored both writing and engineering, so I have some experience with explanations as well. Within fiction, my "beginner's luck" specialty appears to be angst and possibly internal dialogue.

    Weaknesses: Tutoring aside, a lot of my 'basic' physics, engineering, and military (Air Force) knowledge is subconscious. I'm probably better beta-ing for a layperson in these subjects (as opposed to another military engineer). I'm also a fiction rookie, complete with the normal dearths in character voice/characterization.

    Won't Do: I am not the person you want reviewing pro-Mitchell or Anti-Sam (Stargate) fics. I doubt I could do slash (I'm Sam/Jack, Janet/Daniel, though ship is unnecessary). Other than that, I'll eat just about anything. Any rating, any warnings.

    Prefer: I'm a Sam fan, original team-er, and a full-spectrum SJ shipper. Action, drama, angst, fluff, anything. Anything Carter, anything original team or part thereof (Jonas is ok). SG-1 is all I know well, but SGA's good too.

    PM for +PG-13: Sure.

    Never had any luck finding a beta this way, but no harm in trying...

    I need a beta for my femslash exchange entry.

    It's Elizabeth/Teyla established relationship, possibly a hint of Laura/Kate although I could be seeing too much into it. It's general PG-stuff, and there's a flag to be captured.

    I need the fic back by friday evening the latest, preferably my time (GMT+1).

    I wouldn't be too hot with characterization (I've only seen Atlantis once) but I could look it over for spelling and grammar, if that would be helpful.

    Spelling and grammar would be brilliant.

    Here I am - again... This time I have a general SGA fic, set somewhere season 2-ish (or 3-ish, or somewhere in the middle of it). Elizabeth Weir is the central character.

    Shoot me a PM if interested. It's my entry for SGA_santa so timing is of the essence, as in the deadline is december 10.


    Found a beta.
    However, thank you MonicaL for shooting a PM, even if you didn't get the job. It was much appreciated nonetheless.

    Hi everyone! I'm looking for a beta reader to check out my work I've written. I've written a Daniel/Original Character fiction novel. Daniel meets and intriguing woman and discovers a mystery.

    I also wrote two more books, making it a trilogy, but it's the first story I'd like to have a beta for. If anyone's interested, please let me know! I'm also at fanfiction.net...
