Thread: Beta Central

    Default Re: Beta Central

    Hello! I'm looking for a beta for the story I'm currently working on (Subjective Point of View). It's an AU version of "Point of View" with the premise that Dr. Carter brought her 13 year old daughter through the Quantum Mirror. I'm looking for someone who can catch typos, help me with characterization as well as give me advice and suggestions for the story itself. It's my first time writing SG-1 fanfiction, and I would really appreciate someone who can make sure I'm not making a mess of things!

    I'd like my beta to look at the six chapters I've already posted (I am more than willing to edit/reupload them if needed!) as well as the future chapters.

    Thank you!

    Sheppard Re: Beta Central

    I'm in the last read-thru stage of my first Atlantis fanfic (I've written for other franchises in the past) and am about ready for a beta. "Flight Suit", which is the first of an envisioned trilogy of AU stories involving a new recurring character and will basically re-write portions of season five, starting with E.2 - "The Seed". The stories will revolve around Sheppard and the new character.

    Story number-one is slightly over 100 pages and I need less a spelling/grammar check (thank you MS Word!) and more of a check of characterization, Atlantis back-story/science detail, and general story integrity - as well as making sure my commas don't take on a life of their own!

    It's rated PG, or possibly PG-13 - if "dammit" is considered a swear word.

    Communication will be done via PM's (or emails, if you prefer) and Box.com.

    I can help out with characterization and/or continuity.

    My native language is Dutch, so spelling and grammar is not my thing for beta'ing.

    I work full-time and I'm still in the process of emptying boxes from my recent move, so timewise I can squeeze it in but 100 pages will take me a few days. I can read it during my trainrides too, I guess.

    Hard to find a beta, but trying it anyway.

    I have a couple of short ficlets, barely 350 words each (give or take a few), which require a bit of beta'ing. I'm not a native speaker so I'm bound to make mistakes. And yes, there's a deadline of sorts (preferably be posting them before the 6th of January).

    Stargate Atlantis
    1) Kate/Teyla - PG-13 - 359 words
    2) John/Rodney - PG-13 - 350 words

    Primeval
    1) Emily/Jess - PG-13 - 371 words

    I'm looking for a beta for an agsty S/J fic I'm writing. I'm looking for someone to bounce ideas off of as well as finding any mistakes? The mistakes you will find would probably be the odd grammar one here and there.
    I love to write about the complicated relationship that Sam and Jack have from both of their POV, this one is mainly from Sam's analysing how much easier it would have been for her if she'd fallen in love with Daniel. I used to write S/J but my job has kind of stopped my creativity due to the time it takes up. Really desperate to get back into it and have 1,000 words of a fic written. I would really appreciate a fellow S/J fan who enjoys angst offering a helping hand.

    Thank you!

    Happy new year! Xx

    Looking for a beta to review a 1K secret santa fic. I'm not a native English speaker, so I need someone to check my grammar and spelling (and if you come across a plothole the size of which you can run a puddlejumper through, you may kindly tell me to plug it).

    If your LJ-handle is Lizs24 - please back away slowly. Thank you.

    This is an urgent request, for I will require to have the beta done by december 20, 8pm (GMT+1 - Europe time, Belgium).
