BETA REQUIREMENTS: Willingness to learn or research canon, a strong constitution for graphic self-abuse and medical experiences (think A Million Little Pieces), and a desire to help build a strong, complex plot that asks some important questions about how a non-military organization protects its citizens, if the needs of the many really outweigh the needs of the few, and what consequences does the XI world have on Jim Kirk.

Please pm if interested.

Hello. I have a story for the K/S Advent that I need a beta to look
over. I'm really just looking for someone to go over it and make sure I
haven't missed any words or spelled something wrong. I'm not sure how
long it is (will be), because I'm typing in WordPad, which doesn't have
pages or word counts. But it shouldn't be too long. If anyone has like
ten minutes to spend looking it over for me, I would really appreciate
it. I'm not quite done with the story yet, but I will be soon, probably
in another hour or so.

The story is basically fluff with Jim and Spock spending Christmas at home with their son and their other partner.

I had like very bad luck with betas, because until now, a friend here and a friend there help me out in the past, i loved my friends, they love me, but they have a lot to do writing and living so i have a lot of things who need check and the most terrible thing is in the now
I had like less than 10 days for posting my K/S advent calendar is almost finished and is like 9600 words now, and will end up like 11k giving or take. it is a cross over with Dune of Frank Herbert, but you don't need to read the book only with wiki about the bene gesserit is enough.

and hopefully a more permanent beta for my work in my computer and in my head.

HELP!!!! *bat eyelashes*
[identity profile] honeyycomb.livejournal.com
Firstly, I would like to request a beta reader (or two) for an XI Kirk/McCoy slash fic I am in the process of writing. The fic is a fairly standard, Kirk's-injured-and-McCoy's-bitching-and-taking-care-of-him, more than a tiny bit angsty thing, but I'm experimenting with having each chapter come from the POV of a different character as they visit Kirk in sickbay. As such, the fic is almost entirely made up of speech, and one of the main things I'm going to need help with is making sure I'm keeping everyone in character and their dialogue sounding 'correct'. The fic will hopefully turn out at around 20,000 words (in case length is an issue).

Secondly, I'm just starting in on a fic that, in my head at least, is growing to fairly epic proportions. o.O What I'm looking for here, for now, is someone who can help me out with some questions about canon (for now I'm just looking for help with one or two XI questions; if anything else comes up I'll post again). I'm usually very confident with canon, but I want to make sure I'm definitely getting it right with a few things. :-)

Any and all help appreciated - thanks in advance!

Hi all,
I'm in need of a willing soul or two to beta two fanfictions.
Since my first language is Italian, I mostly need someone skilled/fluent with English who can offer suggestions and perhaps changes to words more suited than the ones I chose. I am open to changes too, so don't be shy: I don't bite. ;)

The fics are two, both slash theme, and you aren't required to take both if you don't feel like to. ;)

Infos behind the cut )

PM me if you're interested and also reply here so I won't lose the message. Found. Thanks! <3
Thank you in advance. :)

Finish My Fic:
Where unfinished work goes to get finished by other authors

*Fic just sitting on your hard drive? You haven't touched it in ages.*
*Did the ideas run out and you don't know where to go with the fic?*
*Did you get sick of the fic itself and feel like everything is forced?*

If so, [livejournal.com profile] finish_my_fic might be just for you. Post your unfinished work, your notes

and ideas and see if anyone would like to finish it.

Name:  Sarhea
Preferred contact: Email - sarhea1980@yahoo.ca
Current Word Count: 50300, complete
Title: Soul Bound
Crossover Fandoms: Harry Potter, Star Trek AOS/Reboot/IX/2009
Type: gen, het, romance, drama, scifi, supernatural
Rating: R, for intimacy, some language and violence
Characters/Pairings: Hermione Granger, nu!Spock.
Warnings: violence, some language, some intimacy nothing explicit.
- AU after B7 Deathly Hallows; ignore the epilogue. Hermione and Ron do not get together. They Do Not Work in my universe.
- Consider this as AU to the Star Trek Reboot movie. The Narada destroys the Kelvin but the subsequent events are slightly different, then the events in the movie are changed to a much greater degree because Spock’s motivation, character, and history have changed. Butterfly Effect.
Needs: I'm looking for a beta reader to point out obvious discontinuity and loop-holes and with grammer/spelling.  I've done my best to go over the fic but mistakes do slip through for long fics.  If you have suggestion about characterization and speech I'd definitely welcome the feed back.  I know it is short notice but I was more focused on finishing the fic first because it kept going on and on.  The mods at [livejournal.com profile] crossbigbang  said they would be okay with giving me a posting date towards the middle of June.  Postings start June 3.  Please contact me via e-mail if you are interested.
Disclaimer: I don’t own Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood and co, JK Rowling does. I don’t know Trekverse and associated characters, Paramount and various other holding companies do.

I need a beta for my sci-fi big bang fic. Estimated final word count is somewhere between 40,000 and 65,000 words; it's a fusion with The Inspector Lynley Mysteries, but I already have a couple of Lynley betas.

Preferred way of contact (email/IM/PMs): Email (PM me if you're interested)
Fandom: The Inspector Lynley Mysteries/24th Century Star Trek
Pairings: Tommy Lynley/Barbara Havers, Shannon Reed/Carly Doherty (minor)
Rating: Soft R
Summary: "Commander Barbara Havers has clawed her way up the ranks to become one of Starfleet's best tactical officers, despite her difficult reputation. Now assigned as First Officer to the USS Providence under Captain Thomas Lynley, scion of one of Starfleet's most famous families, she does her best to keep her legendary temper in check as they struggle to find common ground. But with the Federation reeling from a powerful new threat - and the shocking disappearance of one of their own - Havers and Lynley must put aside their differences to survive the most brutal war Starfleet has ever faced, for their cooperation - or lack thereof - could mean the difference between life and death. Is it possible to find friendship - and love - with the unlikeliest of allies against a backdrop of chaos and destruction? Barbara Havers is about to find out."
Any other info/warnings: Takes place from 2371-2376, during the run-up to and the battles of the Dominion War, so familiarity with Deep Space Nine and the details of the Trek universe is essential. Knowledge of Lynley canon is helpful, but not required. (Also, this sucker is going to be long. I have 21K words already, and I'm between halfway and a third of the way done, depending on how the sucker evolves. I figured due warning would be appreciated.)

I'm currently writing 2 bigbang fics - both of which will be Kirk/Spock. One will be TOS and the other will probably be XI. I was wondering if anyone would interested in discussing the fics with me as they are written?

The first fic is currently sitting at close to 1, 500 words. I'm a relatively fast writer when I decide to be, and am hoping to finish the first fic (at about 15K) within the next 2 weeks. 

A short excerpt can be found below the cut:

I'd love someone who's not afraid to give critique on plot as well as grammar and spelling.

Hey guys!

I need some help/advice.

When I was in grade eight, I read the Outsiders for school, and became immediately hooked. Some years later, I saw ST:XI for the first time, and became immediately hooked. About a week ago, I saw both movies in the same day. My world will never be the same.

Consequently, I would like to insert my favourite Star Trek characters into an au version of the Outsiders. I have a general plot idea, and some specific scenes in mind. I'm just a little torn on how best to do this, in regards to time, POV, character changes, etc...

So anyone who would be willing to help and has read/loved the Outsiders would be sooo appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I've written a few K/S fics and some House fics before, but I need help pretending to make Spock speak Vulcan. Part of me doesn't care that much about grammar and sentence structure with Vulcan, but part of me is really anal about accuracy. I have most of the words I want to use, but I don't know about verb tenses and how to use reflexive pronouns and whatnot.

I won't need much (if any) help with English grammar, as I'm a proud grammar-nazi. My only issues in fics have been missing a small word like "he" or "a" in the middle of sentences.

Anyway, this part of the story is porny, so I need you to be old enough to read that. Let me know if you are interested or can help.

Thanks muchly!

I need a beta for a de-aged Bones fic that's a little over 3400 words. It's for a space_wrapped prompt and is due to be posted on 12/2. It's rated pg for a few swear words and there is no sexual content, but it is made clear that Bones and Jim are a couple. I'm looking for help with grammar/sentence structure. I am not looking for help with plot development. If you can help me out, just contact me via lj or at my email: evleeks@sbcglobal.net. Thanks!

i am not often tempted to write as i am not an author but the bunny nibbled and i typed and typed. it seems fairly decent but would like to be better, word checked but grammar????

Plot: sulu sick, chekov tending him, not out right slash but implied, no graphic medical problems but discussion of some issues.

source: st_xi_kink_meme, abrams universe ( i think), and who ever owns all these people {not me}

not sure what else needs to be said so here's a cut of the pie:

Quick Beta

So, I am like the worst person in the world and have only now finished my fic for [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti. The bidder requested a Kirk/Chekov fic and since that's not really my ship I would love someone to look it over and make sure everyone is in character. I've already sent it to my normal beta, but she's not into the Star Trek fandom and I would feel more comfortable about it if someone who was could look it over quick-like.

I used a nickname (Pasha) for Chekov that I had seen used in a fair amount of fics but since I only know the 2009 movie I don't know if that's even a canon nickname. Does anyone know?

The fic is about 4 pages long in Word (or else I would just post it here) and I would only rate it PG-13 because there are (vague) allusions to sexual situations and I think I'm a little old-fashioned as to what kids know these days.

Just leave me a comment or PM me with your email address and I will send it off. Since this bidder has been waiting since about February, I would really love to get it beta'd and posted ASAP. Thanks!
