2013 Beta Sign-up Post!

Comments are now enabled. Now get to the signing up!

Beta sign-up is here as both a courtesy to participants in need of a beta and as a spot for those who'd like to offer services to participants. If you already know who you'll be doing beta work for, there is no need to sign up as a beta (unless, of course, you'd like to take on another beta job!).

Copy from the text box and paste into a new comment to complete sign up.

"Fandoms" can be broad, such as "science fiction fandoms", or specific, such as "Harry Potter, One Piece, or Free!", and can include as many as you wish to list. You may also elect to blanketly state "all fandoms" or note exceptions such as "all fandoms except historical AUs".

You are allowed to sign up to beta if you don't have a Livejournal account; however, you must provide an email address in your sign-up so that creators can contact you. You may also provide alternate forms of contact if you like, but they are not necessary.

Fandoms I am willing to work with: Star Trek (Kirk/Spock), Supernatural (Dean/Cas), Merlin (Arthur/Merlin), Inception (Arthur/Eames), Pacific Rim, Harry Potter (Draco/Harry) [I'm also happy to work with ensemble/platonic fics for all of these fandoms]
What I can offer: Help with characterization, plot, grammar/vocab; a sympathetic ear; pictures of cute animals at 2am
Level of intensity: I'm willing to be anything from a sounding board to a grammar nit-picker to a cheerleader to whatever, really
Not willing to work with: mpreg, unhappy endings
Heeey, quick request: I forgot to add the "what mediums I can beta" to the sign-up template for this post. Would you mind replying here with that information? (whether you can beta fic, art, podfic, etc.)

Thanks! And welcome to the challenge! :D
Mediums I can beta (art, fic, etc.): I am most comfortable beta-ing fic, but I can turn my untrained eye towards art as well? I'm not really sure what goes into beta-ing podfic so I may not be a good go-to for that. :)

If I am the everyday beta for two of your signees do I need to sign up here?
No, that's not necessary, unless you're interested in offering beta services to other participants as well.

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Supernatural, Merlin, Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Sherlock {message me about ships but I'm really cool with all of them}
Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.) Probably just fic, but I can also help {{slightly}} with graphics (like photoshop stuff)
What I can offer: Grammar/vocab, prose, flow, character voice, plot, a good kick to help you get going when you need it
Level of intensity: Whatever you need me to be :)
Not willing to work with: Mpreg, Watersports, ~~extreme~~ BDSM (i mean stuff like bloodplay and torture) but I'm totally down with regular old kinky bdsm and healthy dom/sub relationships :D
Additional Notes: I only really wanna take on 2 authors (esp bc this is such a huge undertaking) but I've never perfected the art of saying 'no' so I'll probably end up taking on anyone who asks :)
I see that you are willing to work with Supernatural. Are you also willing to beta for J2?
Sorry, I'm not really comfortable with RPF from Supernatural... I mean if it's no pairings than sure but if it's jensen/jared then sorry :(
Oh no it's Jensen/Jared. Thanks anyway though! :D

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Mainly Merlin to be honest as that's what I've concentrated on recently.
Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.) Fic
What I can offer: Spelling and grammar, coherency, story pacing, characterisation, plot holes, brit picking, research.
Level of intensity: I think this means how involved I'll get? Well that tends to depend on what the Author needs me to do and the relationship I build with the Author. I do tend to get rather into the process.
Not willing to work with: Fem!slash unless it is a secondary/background pairing with no sexual content between them,I'm the same really with Het, although I'll accept mild sexual content in a background het pairing. Extreme underage (for sexual content I class this as younger than 15), Non-con for pleasure circumstances instead of as an unavoidable plot point, incest, beastiality (but I dont class Omegaverse or supernatural creatures as this), necrophilia (I dont class vampires as 'dead' though, I mean real necrophilia), 'watersports' or fecal matter, MPreg (except in certain circumstances in OmegaVerse), Cross dressing, blatant extreme humiliation in public for sexual purposes, genderbending, unhappy endings.
Additional Information: Please check my main post on my LJ for a more detailed run down of what I offer. If in doubt, ask! I wont bite :) There is also links on there to my most recent beta work.

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Merlin (Arthur/Merlin), Harry Potter, Supernatural, Doctor Who, Torchwood (Jack/Ianto), (I'd probably be ok with any fandom, but these are the ones I'd be most comfortable with. And, unless it's incest, I'd also be ok with most ships as well, message me if you want to ask about that :) ) as a note: Merlin is my main fandom, and the one I'd be most interested in beta-ing for.
Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.) Erm definitely fic, I could try beta-ing for art? But to be honest, I don't really know how one goes about beta-ing art...
What I can offer: Grammar/vocab, sentence structure, constructive criticism, sounding board for ideas, help with plot, characterisation, dialogue, coherency, etc., chocolate chip cookies
Level of intensity: I'd be willing to get as involved as my writer would need, although I think a high level of involvement would be fun
Not willing to work with incest, mpreg (except in Omega!verse), fem!slash, watersports

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Teen Wolf, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Merlin
Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.) mostly fiction, but I would also do podfics... I probably suck at art because I couldn't draw if my life depended on it...
What I can offer: motivation speeches a la Coach Finstock, sweets from "Weasley's Wizarding Wheezes" and a dandelion every now and then... no, seriously, grammar and vocabulary check, constant and honest feedback, help with development (character and storyline) and an open ear for your problems and doubts
Level of intensity: basically anything...
Not willing to work with: Mpreg, strong BDSM, like anything that goes beyond healthy, watersports, incest, fem!slash

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Art: Any Fic: Merlin, Smallville, Harry Potter, James Bond, Avengers, Suits... Ask, you never know.
Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.) Art and Fic
What I can offer: For art, I can help with everything. Five years at art school prepares you for a lot in terms of spotting stuff. Can't figure out how to get that one effect just right? I might just know/ am an amazing researcher and can find out.

Fic: Your basic grammar and punctuation run through but my strength lies in plotting and structure, preventing large content dumps and avoiding plot holes.
Level of intensity: I am pretty low key, I will help you however you need but I am terrible at hounding If you need help to stop procrastination or whatever, I am NOT your person.
No scat, incest, underage, watersports, or bestiality. Gen preferred, slash is yummy.

Alternate Forms of Contact: LJ message, DW message (same username), Twitter (same username), Tumblr (guess ;-p)

Fandoms I am Willing to Work with: Original fiction, The Big Bang Theory, Red Dwarf, Harry Potter, Discworld, Stephen King, Seanan McGuire, Mira Grant, Kushiel's Legacy, Black Jewels, Firefly, John Marsden, and I'm willing to discuss any of the fandoms I've written for on AO3, but have varying levels of familiarity with those.

Mediums I Can Beta: (art, fic, etc.)Definitely fic, maybe art but I am by no means a qualified art critic.

What I can offer: Sixteen years of experience in reading and writing fan fiction and longer than that in writing original fiction. Professional editing experience (I hold a Grad Dip in Editing and Publishing). My best experience is copyediting and proofreading but I can do structural stuff as well. I'm reasonably good with characterisation. I have experience with US, British, and Australian English.

Level of intensity: Basically whatever you need from simple cheerleading to standing over you and (consensually) beating you whenever you misplace a comma.

Not willing to work with: I'm pretty open here but would prefer warnings for rape and sexual abuse, suicide and suicidal ideation, incest, and underage. No bestiality, guro, scat, or body horror, please.
