Heya everyone,
Just written a fic you think might need a little beta reading? This is the place!
Fill out and paste this :


Request for a beta reading or proof reading?
Fic title :
Genre :
Rating :
Pairings (if any) :
Quick summary :
Reasons for wanting a beta :



Please be as accurate as possible, so that any potential beta readers "know what they're getting into" -so to speak.

This thread always anyone who wants to beta/proof read as a one time thing to take a chance.

Side note: This fic is actually in the Library section... so some of you may have read it already...

Name: Alyss XD
Request for beta/proofing: Proofing, please!! I just need someone to go over it, and point out anything that doesn't make sense, or could be improved.
Fic Title: Whiplash
Genre: Kinda angsty, but fluffy in the beginning.
Rating: T for Teen
Pairings: KenXYolei
Summary: Ken and Yolei are spending some *cough* quality time together, when Yolei's ginormous mouth opens up and Ken's night turns from promising to not-so-good.
Reasons: I know it's rather rough, and it can be refined a bit more, but if I end up doing it... it's not going to turn out much different than it already is.

Question: What happens if, for instance, more than one person offers to beta/proof your fic??

Either choose one person, or let several go for it and see which version you like best or mash it all together...

I don't know how you want to do it, it's up to you Wink

Um, I need one.

Name : Caitlin.
Request for a beta reading or proof reading? Beta primarly; maybe proof reading.
Fic title : One by One
Genre : Mystery/Romance
Rating : T.
Pairings (if any) : Mimato. Taiora. Daicatherine. Willkari.
Quick summary : Weddings are supposed to be joyous occasions. However, a murder on the loos can really put the damper on things.
Reasons for wanting a beta : My story is crappy so far. I need some help because I'm completely stuck right now. And I'm bad at catching mistakes or awkward dialogue.

I changed the first two couples. Sorry.

It's okay, I don't need a beta anymore; I already have the first part finished and on fanfiction. net. Thanks for the offer though. Really appreciate it.

So I need a beta...
I'm filling this out according to the first chapter.

Request for a beta reading or proof reading?
Beta me hard.
Fic title: TBA
Genre: Romance/Angst (well, it's more wangst than angst)
Rating: G
Pairings (if any): Takari, but angsty and onesided.
Quick summary: TK loves Kari, she does too, right? Well, no, not really. Just don't tell anyone.
Reasons for wanting a beta: I want to be a better writer. Deep and thorough constructive criticism is needed. I want this fic beat into shape, bloody whipped into shape, whatever it takes. I want a beta who won't hesitate to be harsh, or to tell me I'm spouting nonsense. I want someone tough, like an effing drill sergeant. I don't want you to go easy on me, I want you to be blunt and go for it, hard. (I'm not a masochist, honest!)

I've only written the first chapter so far. I know for sure that in later chapters: the rating will go up (T, possibly M,) and there will be other pairings (see below.)

This fic is going to be a sort of rewrite of the fic I started last year for Aana's birthday. It was called the Love Kite. Aana had asked for something along the lines of "TK loves Kari, Kari loves Matt, Tai also love Matt, but what does Matt want? Neither sibling knows of the other's crush."

Anyone want to take this on?

Contact Darko or Matt.

And if you need proof of their harshness, I can forward you the Word doc that they mutilated! Wink

Or you can just get everyone in the forum to beta it. That would be fun...

Fun (the term being used loosely), though possibly counter-productive.

I must admit, I did have either Darko or Matt in mind regarding harshness.

What did they mutilate? Forward away!

If you're sending The Return, keep in mind that I went first, otherwise Darko would have had a lot more to say.

So if you're like a little puppy, little puppies are therefore harsh?
Joking! Joking!
In this case being harsh is a good thing (according to me, but still)

You're not! I'm sorry if it came across that way! Crying or Very sad
I'm the one who's sorry for not doing the best I could with your idea for you.

They weren't that harsh, but that doesn't matter. They were right. And yeah, I sent her TR!

I owe them oodles for the outrageously better outcome! Very Happy

So is someone going to step forward? Or do I have to grab you by the hair and bend you to my will? ("you" specifically aiming Matt and Darko)

And see how nice I am, Onii-chan, advertising your awesome beta skills! Razz

Uh, well to be honest, I didn't do much. And 10 might be an exaggeration. lol.

I mostly just learned how to make bases. As far as the strategy and attacking... I royally suck. Sad

Practice makes perfect!

Darko might be the better choice for beta-ing, though if you give it to me, I'll happily dissect it for you.
