Hey I'm new on LJ. The mods for the SBB suggested I look here for a beta to finish my fic as my previous one took on to much stuff to get everything done on time.

Set in an A/B/O verse, with levels within the genders, still have normal humans running around. Characters can shape-shift into a certain animal( which corresponds to their human personality).

According to the other beta I have a tendency to change tenses and not realize it. Also the fic is to be posted on March 7th, 2017, so if you can help, I would greatly appreciate it!

I'm looking for a kindly beta who has time to look over my Dean Winchester BB in the next couple of weeks. Posting dates haven't been announced yet but I believe posting will begin at the start of March, so any help will be gratefully recieved!

Title: Follow that Jackalope!
Genre: Wincest, Humour.

Pairings or Characters: Sam/Dean
Warnings: Crack, humor, a little violence, explicit sex, Dean in panties, bottom Dean, Satyr Sam, Fairy Dean.
Rating: NC:17
Length: 16,000 words
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar and spelling mainly, but also just a general look-over for glaring plot holes or idiocy.

Short Summary: It’s a simple black-dog hunt, or so Sam and Dean think, but that’s before a unicorn is spotted frolicking in the woods. Now they have to contend with a super-powered witch, a friendly dragon and a mermaid. All while dealing with a few extra appendages. So, just another run-of-the-mill hunt then.


Beta found, thank you!
 
 
05 February 2017 @ 05:31 pm
Title: Stardust and Hunting Go Hand in Hand
Genre: Crossover with Doctor Who and later on Torchwood, Kidfic, Slash, Wincest, Mpreg and a/o/b
Pairings or Characters: Jack Harkness/Sam Winchesters, Dean/Sam, Jack Harkness/Ianto Jones, original kid, the Doctor, Rose Tyler
Type of beta you'd like: grammar/spelling mainly
Length: Multi-chapter almost 20k
Short Summary: Sam never made it to Stanford, he needed up traveling with the Doctor and while Sam knew that his alpha was Dean he couldn't help but fall head over heels for Jack until tragedy struck. Dean wasn't sure what to do when he found Sam pregnant by another alpha but he wouldn't leave him. True mates are not something that can't be denied and Dean and Sam find each other can not deny what is there.

This is for the Sam Winchester Big Bang and the sooner I find a beta the better it will be because posting starts in a couple of weeks. 
 
 
05 February 2017 @ 05:21 pm
Title: Darkness' Giftt
Genre:Action/Drama/Slash/Wincest
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Sam, John/Mary, Castiel/Meg, Lady Toni
Type of beta you'd like: grammar/spelling at this point
Length: Multi-chapter a little over 14k
Short Summary:Dean was sure that he was suppose to be be dead, coming face to face with not only his mother but father as well he was sure of it. He is unsure what to do when they turn out to Amara's gift to him but none of that matters when he learns Sam is missing and Dean will stop at nothing to find him.

This was written for the Dean Winchester Big Bang and I'm unsure of when the posting date is. It is also a rewrite of S12 first two episodes with a different take on it and there is character death (none of the Winchesters). 
 
 
04 February 2017 @ 10:31 pm
Title: Raise Hell (WIP, name subject to change but not likely)
Genres: Het, case fic elements, will be smut, takes place in season 3 so may very well be a little heartbreak.
Pairings or Characters: Dean/OFC - hear me out! I wrote this specifically with the idea of how romance could realistically work into the storyline, so I like to think it's a bit different than most OFC fics out there. Also features Sam and a little Bobby so far. A couple other original characters involved in the case.
Type of beta you'd like: A little of most things, I suppose. This is my first time writing fanfic in a while, so ideally someone to give feedback on readability, character voice, original character creation, maybe the occasional sounding board for ideas, definitely help with tags as since I'm totally out of the loop. My grammar tends to be pretty solid so it's not my utmost priority, but a second set of eyes never hurts with that. I'd also dig a friendly relationship between us, and am willing to beta most anything in return!
Length: Definitely multi-chapter. I'm about two-thirds finished with the first arc and at 17600 words. How I feel at the end of this arc dictates whether or not I persue the other two I have in mind.
Short Summary: (Written on the spot because I haven't put together a summary yet, go me.)
Dean has sold his soul and intends to make the best of his time left on Earth. Pretty women and cheap booze fill his nights, and his days are spent with his brother doing what they do best. So what happens when he meets his match just before the end of his world?
TL;DR Dean is whoring it up because he's going to die and in the process meets a pretty girl he kind of digs. Romance ensues.
Turnaround Time: No strict timline. I'm sort of starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and would like to post this soon after I finish writing, but want it beta'd first. I would plan on sending you the story a chapter at a time and you giving input that way, but if you'd rather have everything at once that's cool, too.

Title: Undecided; working title "Useless Confessions"
Genre:  Gen with past Wincest, Case fic, early seasons
Pairings or Characters: Dean, Sam, in-episode side characters
Type of Beta: Flow and readability.  How do men sound when they talk?  Dean voice especially? If there's anything you see that I missed
Length: Stand-alone, but part of a multi-chapter work.  This chapter only is for a mini-bang.  Around 7,400 words.
Short Summary: Kind of reading in-between the lines of the episode "Asylum".  How did the good Dr. Ellicott screw with Sam's head?  How does Dean react to it?  Basically just expounding on the episode a bit, looking at it from a different angle.

My posting date isn't until (Asexual Mini-Bang) isn't until the end of April or so, but the sooner I can get this fully edited and finished, the better.  The day after the final draft for this is due, the first draft for the Big Bang is due, so I'm on a fairly tight time table.  I'd love to be able to present a final draft to whoever does the art for it.

Thanks, so much.  Good luck on whatever it is you've got going, whether it's fandom related or not.

Hi,

I'm looking for a beta for my sammybigbang entry. Grammar, spelling, continuity, general feedback, would be greatly appreciated.

Title: Patience (Tentative)
Word Count: a little over 7k
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Dean/Sam
Tags: AU, pre-series, powers!boys
Warnings: language, wincest-ish (nothing graphic, some light kissing)

Summary: Sam will never understand. What are their abilities good for, if not for helping them get what they want. There’s nothing more Sam wants than to be free. He wants his freedom and his brother and the first step to getting both for good is being free of John. Sam shakes his head. His forehead sweaty against Dean’s back. He pulls Dean in closer, until there is no space between them. He and John can’t co-exist. As long as John is around Sam can’t be who wants, can’t take what he wants and god knows, Sam wants.


Posting due date is Feb. 20. I would love to have it back from beta a week or so before that.

Thanks!
Gigi

Hello! I’m a fic writer who hasn’t posted anything big in a long time. Back when I was posting regularly, I had a beta reader who I became pretty good friends with. But it’s been a long time and she’s way too busy to help me anymore.

I haven’t been active in the SPN fandom in quite a while (even though I never stopped fangirling.) so unfortunately, I don’t really know anyone anymore. So, now that I am writing again, I need to find someone to help me with a Sam/Dean fic I have been working on for Big Bang this year.

I would love to find someone who is willing to do more than just proofread the fic. Someone who would be willing to keep in touch and let me talk to them about the fic and let me bounce ideas off of them. Someone who would be interested in helping me make this fic as good as it possibly can be.

This fic is my baby. I haven’t cared so much for a fic since my very first, “God Loveth His Children.” I really want to do it right. It’s the first thing I’ve written in a long time so I am scared to death to put myself out there again. But at the same time, I am so excited. I've learned a lot about the craft of writing since my last fic, so I am excited to see what I am capable of now.

If anyone reads this and would be interested in helping me…my fic is a Sam/Dean season 5 AU. I’m already 10,000 words in but I’m only up to Chapter 3. So yeah, this is going to be a long one. I could really use some help.

Although I would love to meet someone who is interested in really getting to know me along with helping me with my fic, I will take any help I can get, even if you are only willing to proofread.

Thank you, guys!
Kelly

Title: (It's a secret because I want to participate in spn_j2_bigbang)
Genre: Action/Drama/Wincest/Season 4 AU
Type of beta you'd like: EVERYTHING. LOL (grammer, plotting, relationship progression, scene and story structure, a sounding board to bounce ideas off of)
Length: Multi-chapter, (Eventually) novel-length. (I am 10,000 words in and only on chapter 3)
Short summary:

I can't give a summary because of participating in The Big Bang


Turnaround Time: May 1st
 
 
Current Mood: hopefulhopeful
 
 
05 January 2017 @ 01:16 pm
Title: I am the one you warned me of
Genre: mostly porn with some drama and introspection
Pairings or Characters: demon!Dean/Crowley, small but relevant mentions of background Sam/Dean
Type of beta you'd like: Mostly grammar, punctuation and that kind of things. English is not my first language, so my sentence structures can be odd, I don't understand all the complex nuances words have and so on. Otherwise I'm quite happy with the story as it is, but if you have constructive criticism about anything, I'm glad to hear it.
Length: 1877 words
Short Summary: Crowley's project of getting himself his own Knight of Hell didn't go as expected. But the sex is great. <- That's the summary I'm planning to use. Anyway, it's mostly about Crowley taking it up the ass while demon!Dean keeps the First Blade on his throat.
Warnings: D/s, knifeplay, orgasm denial, humiliation, comeplay, fear!kink, dirty talk, rough sex
 
 
11 December 2016 @ 05:37 pm
Title: ??
Genre: Season two timeline/Teenchesters/Gen/Angst/some fluff I guess
Pairings or Characters: Sam, Dean, John
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar, spelling, Plot. I haven't posted anything for years... This one has been a work in progress for such a long time and I finally managed to do something with it. I would really love a second opinion.
Length: 19 200 words
Short Summary: While staying at the roadhouse for a few days, Sam and Dean hear of a hunt that turns out to be unfinished business from a hunt when they were kids. Set in season two with flashbacks to 1995.
Turnaround Time: None at all
 
 
 
08 December 2016 @ 07:37 am
Title: Carterhaugh
Genre: Canon divergent AU, magical realism
Pairings/Characters: Sam/Castiel, Crowley, Bobby, Dean
Word Count: 30k
Summary: When Sam leaves his dad and brother, he's expecting to spend a few weeks working his way across the country to California and the full ride to Stanford that waits for him. He's not expecting to stumble into a strange place called Carterhaugh County, and he's not expecting to accidentally trap himself there with a man named Castiel, who as it turns out, isn't a human at all.
This is basically a Sastiel AU of Tam Lin, ie a Beauty and the Beast-esque story. Magical realism and fairy tale logic abound.

This is for the SCBB and I post Dec 23, so a sort of tight turn around time.

Thanks!

Hi!
I'm looking for a beta to look at my Sastiel Big Bang which is due to post Dec. 27th.
Title: Sweet Treats
Genre: Fluff/Kidfic/Slash/Het/AU
Pairings/Characters: Main pairing is Castiel/Sam with Benny/Dean, John/Mary, past Castiel/Amelia, past Brady/Sam, background Gabriel/Hannah, background Meg/Elieen and lots of little Claire
Type of beta I'm looking for is someone to look over my grammar, punctuation, and spelling
Word Count: A little over 25k
Short Summary:Baker Sam never meant to fall for his newest customer Castiel who came in looking for a birthday cake for his daughter and he certainly never expected Castiel to have to deal with overprotective Dean who since Sam's last relationship ended up with him hurt has made it his mission to fully check out everyone who Sam likes.
 
 
28 November 2016 @ 07:13 am
Title: Last Chance (this is a working title given by the artist)
Genre: rps, h/c, AU with a lot of non-AU elements
Pairings or Characters: J2, JDM
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar/spelling error check mostly.
Length: 29,075-word stand-alone complete. Scheduled to post December 13.
Short Summary: Jared's life is a mess. Jensen is the guardian angel who answers his desperate prayer for help. Problem is, it isn't the first time, although Jared doesn't remember that. In order to help, Jensen breaks every rule in the book, re-orders the universe, and re-starts time itself. Just another day in J2 heaven. (It's actually a little angstier than this sounds, but I'm punch-drunk from writing all night and that's the first summary that came to mind!) Written for the 2016 j2_reversebang.


FOUND! Thank you!

Hi Everyone,
I'm looking for a beta for a fanfic with an odd pairing.
As it's a Christmas fanfic, though, I prefer not to reveal details right now ;)
If you're interested, please leave a comment or send me a PM!
Rating: R
Pairing: OMC/Dean
Warning: slash, H/C, kind of like a Fairy Tale version very Christmassy ;)
Type of Beta: I need a beta to check my spelling, punctuation and grammar
Length: it's WIP at the moment, but the goal is to remain under the 2k
Thanks!

FOUND!

Hey y'all, I'm in the market for a beta for a long-term fanfiction. All the details are below.

Title: The working title is "One in Hand...", but that will probably change.

Genre: Drama, Humour Animal Transformation, Probably a little fluff, I want to keep this light and fun.

Pairing: light Destiel, but it really isn't the focus of the fic.

Warning: None really, maybe Dean's swearing? There won't be smut.

Type of Beta: I'm looking for someone who is willing to be it for the long haul with me. This is going to be a long-term project and will probably get pretty big. I need someone who is willing to go through my writing and isn't afraid to tell me what's wrong. I also need some who is willing to yell at me to get off my a** and write. Plot holes, grammar, character voices, we're a team so I'll take what you have to say to make my writing better.

Length: Right now it's a WIP, but I already have about 7,000 words written out. By the time, I get a response to this post that number will probably be more around 10,000. I expect this story to be about novella (~40,000 words), but I don't really know.

Summary: Sometime in S9. For once in Dean's life, things are pretty alright. Yeah, Cas is human, but he's adjusting and has started coming with them on hunts. Sam (sans Ezekiel) is on the mend and ready to get his life back to normal. So, all in all, things are good. That's until Cas gets turned into a bird by a witch. Now the Winchesters are trying to figure out how to turn him back and they're actually making some real progress, but things are never that simple...

(I really suck at summaries...)

Turnaround Time: There really isn't a deadline for this or anything. Once we get a few chapters polished and published, I'd like to have a posting schedule, but I'm really open.

If you have any other questions or would like to become my beta, then please comment or message me at silverwind10123@gmail.com. I answer to that email better than my livejournal so that will probably get you a better response.

Cheers,
Sal

Genres you will beta:
H/C is my personal favourite, but I can beta any if not mentioned in the next section (including RPF, torture, deathfics etc.)

Genres you won't beta:
Any non-canon pairings, romance, explicit sexual content

Gen or Character studies you will beta: All

Beta strengths: Spelling and punctuation, characterisation, consistency. Third person narrative preferred.

Beta weaknesses: Living on the other side of the ocean, I can't help with typically American stuff (except for language differences, I read a lot of American books). I also get too picky sometimes.

Length of the fics you'll beta: Any, but I prefer to receive stories (or chapters) no longer than 3,000 words at once. If the entry is longer, prepare to wait.

Any other info: Although I'm pretty familiar with beta reading, I'm no professional. I'm perfectly fine to work with people whose first language is not English, if you're willing to write it (which I know is not easy), I'm willing to help you out.

Please PM me if you're interested. 
 
 
06 November 2016 @ 08:29 am
Title: A Hazy Shade of Winter
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, kinda emotionally slashy between Sam & Cas but nothing explicit, references to past wincest
Pairings or Characters: Sam, Cas, Gabriel, Jody, Alex, Claire, Dean
Type of beta you'd like: I think I just need somebody to read it through to see if it makes sense. It's for the Sastiel Big Bang but the central relationship is more wincesty than I originally intended with lots of hallucinations and dreams. Does Sam feel in character? Grammar/spelling error help always appreciated, too, although I'm pretty good with that stuff mostly.
Length: 28,510-word stand-alone complete.
Short Summary: Alternate ending for 11.23. Dean carries out the plan to sacrifice himself by destroying Amara, saving the world in the process. Just before he does, he makes Cas promise to stay with Sam, to take care of him and stop him from "doing anything stupid." After Dean's death, Sam goes mad with grief. In a last ditch effort to save him and make good on his promise to Dean, Castiel wipes Sam's memories of his brother, leaving Sam a walking shell of a man who can barely remember what he had for breakfast. Sam's functioning, but existing isn't the same as living, and Sam can't shake the feeling that there's something missing. This story assumes the London Men of Letters storyline doesn't happen, God has died or disappeared, and there is no Mary Winchester returned from the dead.

Timeframe: Draft final deadline is November 26.

22 October 2016 @ 01:16 pm
Title: Counting Stars
Fandom/Genre: Hurt/comfort
Pairing (s): Dean/Castiel
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: ~10,000
Warnings: mentions of past child abuse, past abuse, canon character death in non-canon ways

Summary: Dean Winchester will do whatever it takes to protect his family. And when the infamous "philanthropist" Dick Roman poses a threat to him and those he cares about, he will do what he needs to, to keep them safe. But when he kidnaps Dick's son, Castiel, things take a turn he didn't expect. Dick refuses to pay ransom and Dean discovers Castiel isn't what he was expecting. He doesn't share his father's corruption, and is perhaps, someone who has, even more, reason to hate Mr. Roman more than Dean. Soon Castiel has become one of the people Dean wants to protect.

All Castiel ever wanted was a normal life, a safe life away from the tight control of his father. When he is kidnapped by a green eyed stranger, he might just get his chance to be free of his father.

Together with a hacker named Charlie they might just be able to be free of the web of corruption of Dick Roman, once and for all.

Time frame: My posting date is November 10, and I don't need a lot of time to make changes, so anytime before that would be fine.

Best way to contact me: either make a comment on this post or PM me, either works.:)
 
 
09 October 2016 @ 06:21 pm
Title: Howling the Moondogs
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~40k
Warnings: Graphic Depiction of Violence, PTSD - Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Explicit Sexual Content
Summary: Canon divergent from 08x23: Sacrifice. Fallen and slowly being eaten up by guilt for having helped Metatron empty out the skies, Castiel seeks refuge at the bunker and tries to find a way to set everything right. He clings to the one connection that he has always trusted to anchor him over the years, until it starts to crumble under the weight of all their combined responsibilities and finally disappears into the dark without a trace.

I had a beta reader, but due to RL problems they can't help me after all. I'm not a native speaker, so I'd need someone to read it over and check for grammatical mistakes. I've gotten an extension so I will be able to set a new posting date with my beta reader once I've found one (late November for example). Would really appreciate help!!


Found one!
 
 
05 October 2016 @ 08:07 pm
Title: Every Rhyme Without Reason
Genre: slash, non-established relationship, hurt/comfort (both brothers), S1 drama/case!fic, Sam POV
Pairings or Characters: Sam/Dean, Sam/Jess; Sam POV
Type of beta you'd like: Primarily, I'd love some feedback on the flow/pacing of the fic (the pacing is quite slow, and both Sam and Dean have all kinds of non-linear non sequitur thoughts; and I feel like some of the moments where the plot moves forward might be gimmicky/abrupt/inorganic). Other things: If anyone knows how to play poker, there's a scene that would probably benefit from some fact-checking... And as a primarily gen writer, it would be nice to know if my sex scenes sound stupid??? And if so, I'd love advice on how to make them more plausible.
Rating: R
Word Count: 43,400
Warnings: [Spoiler (click to open)]incest (I mean...obviously, but), emotionally complicated/dubious consent, grief/trauma, socioeconomic/psychological precarity, drug use not as prescribed, brief scene of prostitution, insinuations of suicide/suicidal ideation, a little vore
Summary: Still shaky from the events of 1x12 "Faith," Sam and Dean take one too many cases in quick succession and find themselves stranded, with Dean injured and Sam struggling to stand his ground against the insanities of grief, exhaustion, and what seems increasingly like the intractable oblivion of hunting. When a hunter turns up dead at their motel--because of course one does--they find themselves at an uncomfortable crossroads: Just trying to survive the job itself is probably going to kill them before their monster can. Sam's just not sure if it's going to be starvation, overdose, or hypothermia--or maybe it'll be that maxed-out fake health insurance thing. Or maybe it'll be his psychic freakshow thing, after all.

They'll need each other more than ever, but need is a complicated thing; and Sam and Dean are either the best thing for each other or the very worst. It's time to find out which.

Timeframe: This is for the wincestbb. I don't have a posting date yet, but posting begins on Nov. 1, so somewhere in the ballpark of mid/late October would be helpful?

Thank you in advance!
