I’m from Iceland and I have a dyslexia. I’m writing my first two stories right now and I’m hoping to find someone to help my since english has a lot of different grammar rules than icelandic.
I have already started posting them on fanfiction, livejournal and AO3 but people over there suggested that I get a beta.
Title: Dean’s Angel
Genre: Hurt/comfort, family
Pairings or Characters: None. but if the beta is willing to help it might turn into Destiel
Type of beta you'd like: Mostly grammar, spelling, pov. I wouldn’t say no to help with the plot or flow. Basically what ever you are willing to give.
Length: Multi-chapter - estimated number of words: I have no idea, it started out as a one-shot but now it’s a six chapters long.
Short Summary: Something happened to Dean when he was one-year old that ended with him seeing dead people. This story is about how seeing ghost helps Dean become a even better hunter and how he can hide his abilities from other people while unknown to Dean, the angel’s (mostly Castiel) try to find out what happened all those years ago.
Turnaround Time: I don’t know, I just try to write when I have the time, and if I get a beta then I wouldn’t rush them to finish looking it over.
Title: The half-brother
Genre: Hurt/comfort, family, Angst
Pairings or Characters: Hopefully Destiel and Sam/?, but I’m not sure how good I am at writing romance.
Type of beta you'd like: Again, mostly grammar, spelling, pov or/and flow. Basically what ever you are willing to give.
Length: Multi-chapter - estimated number of words: I have no idea,
Short Summary: High-school AU: John left when Mary got pregnant with Dean. Few years later he came back with a new family. Now, almost 17 years later, Sam and Dean learn what it means to be brothers. ( Inspired by One three hill).
Warning: Sam and John are assholes in the beginning, but won’t stay that way in the end.
Turnaround Time: I don’t know, I just try to write when I have the time, and if I get a beta then I wouldn’t rush them to finish looking it over.
Genre: Space AU, Alien!Castiel, Prisoner!Dean
Pairings or Characters: Destiel
Warnings: sex (The fic starts out with a softcore foursome scene that doesn't get very far. I might be including some heavy Destiel action later in the fic. It will not dominate my writing. I promise that there is plenty of plot.)
Type of beta you'd like: punctuation, grammar, and spelling; though I would gladly welcome any additional input offered
Short Summary:Castiel has been hiding from himself for a very long time. Each time he drops a convict off at the nearest lockdown he tells himself that they deserve it, even though the idea of a fair trial died out centuries ago. He ignores the guilt he feels when he finds a suitable vessel among the damned, when he bribes the guards to purchase it, and when he's walking away from his former bretheren laden down with credits while the vessel is led away to be hollowed out for use. They deserve it. He deserves it.
Megla, his first mate and epic pain in the ass only friend, has been searching for a Nazp'sad (a human vessel capable of a true bonding) without his knowledge. She is convinced that the right one will pull her Captain out of his decades long funk.
But, when they finally find Dean will he still be worth all the trouble?
Turnaround Time: October 1st, I'm writing this for the Dean/Castiel Big Bang and that is the first day of posting. I expect to have a 100% rough draft by the end of the month.
ok, so apparently I'm writing now my first fanfic. (I read fanfics since 2013. And I mean excessive...).
Only Wincest or J2.
So, I'm from Austria. Therefore I need a beta for my spelling and grammar.
That's my first two paragraphs:
"The fog lifted itself little by little. The surroundings came clearer. But...nothing made any sense. Sam raised slowly his eyelids to look in front of him. He couldn't feel much at this point, everything was blurry before his eyes. Sam twitched back, but he couldn't go very far. Before his eyes there was the back of a head and he immedially knew who it was. "Dean!" Panic tried to claw his way out of his stomach, but he couldn't efford to loose his mind.
A stern voice, much like his father had possessed, told him in his mind 'take in your surroundings', so Sam tried to move his head slowly to the side.
He was stiff. His hands hung loosely at his sides and Dean... "Dean!" Again, no response. "Dean? Can you hear me? Wake up". No response. 'Ok, your surroundings. Look'. Sam moved his head steady to his left side. There was something like a wall before him. A few feet from his face there was a glass wall. His stomach dropped. At the right side was the same. And before him, over him and...yes, his hands where feeling glass directly at his back too. A few inches from his ass was a wall. But he was standing. How could he be standing? And Dean stood too. But he was unconsious. How was this possible? He tried to get his left foot forwards but couldn't. Dizzy and disorientated it took a while for Sam to see how he was trapped. A solid broad metal band was forged around his waist and held him up."
Do you find any mistakes? Yeah? I don't see it. ;) So, I need help.
It's a work in progress. Momentary there are 4100 words. I think it will get to 7k, we will see.
Genre: AU ABO Mafia fic
Pairings or Characters: All spn characters, Dean/Castiel, Sam/Jess
Type of beta you'd like: Plot flow, continuity and characterization mostly. We are looking for a secondary beta since it's for a BB
Length: so far 40k.
Short Summary: It's a BB so I can't disclose much... Omega!Castiel, Alpha!Dean. Both are crime bosses from Russian Mafia in NYC and Italian Mafia in Boston MA. Includes torture, character death (not major) and a lot of violence and crime. NC-17 rating.
Pairings or Characters: Sam/Dean
Type of beta you'd like: plot, any grammar/spelling I may have missed myself
Length: 36,600~ currently, still expanding
Turnaround time: Posting date isn't until late July, so a good few weeks, but ideally as soon as possible
Warnings: Amnesia, depictions of characters in unbalanced mental states, swearing, sibling incest, talk of drug use (clinical use), inappropriate/inaccurate slurs, descriptions of violence and some gore, descriptions of vomiting (for emetophobia), needles.
Summary: In a small town like Guthrie, Montana, Sam Campbell was prepared to live out the remainder of his ordinary existence as the psychologist for the local psychiatric ward. What he wasn’t prepared for was the newest in-patient completely turning his life upside down. Armed with aggressive tendencies, an inhuman amount of snark and the firm belief that he and Sam know each other, the mysterious Dean proves to be a challenge Sam was never expecting to face. Especially since Sam has no recollection of ever meeting Dean before. Sam is forced to come to terms with his deeply entrenched fascination for this seemingly normal man and the dangerous feelings that come with it. The more he learns about Dean, the harder he falls, drawn in by his charm and the undeniable connection they have with each other. It’s only a matter of time before everything starts to fall apart and Sam realizes not everything is as it seems.
For Dean Winchester, life is hard enough without waking up alone in a motel room with no memories and nothing more than the clothes on his back. As he slowly pieces together the empty parts of his memory, Dean realizes that Sam is missing and he has no clue how to begin to find him. Taking on a local hunt in the meantime seems like a good idea until misplaced trust sends it sideways, leading to Dean being the newest addition to the psych ward just outside of town. In the end, he finds his brother – at a cost. Sam doesn’t know who he is, and Dean himself is still struggling with lost memories that continue to elude him. It doesn’t get any easier when a ghostly woman starts appearing, and even worse, he’s the only one who can see her. Left questioning himself on more levels than one, Dean has to fight to convince Sam that he’s sane. Perhaps his biggest challenge is believing it himself.
No longer searching! Found two kind and willing betas - thank you!
Genre: AU, Slash
Type of beta you'd like: grammar, spelling, plot, IC
Short Summary: Jared's friends won't leave him along about the new guy. They've managed to avoid meeting for half the semester but he knew it wouldn't last. Eventually they'd meet and his friends would continue to try to set them up. Jared doesn't do relationships though. He's never talked to his friends about it, but they hurt too much. Instead, he takes classes, works his ass off to be the best, and never looks back on why. What happens though, when the past he doesn't look back on, takes center stage in his new life?
Genre: Slash, AU, Dragonriders
Type of beta you'd like: grammer, spelling, plot, Pern-isms so knowledge of Pern needed.
Length: This is part of an ongoing story. Would love someone who would like to commit to beta it as new chapters come out, but will take anyone willing to help me out :P
Short Summary: This chapter is about Jared who has impressed a dragon, but who has had no contact with his friend J'sen since it happened. Was it because of Jared's unique impression? Or was J'sen reall that busy?
Title:I don't have one yet
Genre:J2 AU Lovestory
Pairings or Characters:Jensen/Jared , Chris/Chad
Type of beta you'd like:English is not my first language, so I would really appreciate someone looking into my sentences and grammar. Would love to have an outsiders view on it as well :)
Length:Multi Chapter Fic, right now I have the first 3 chapters (first two ok to read, and the last one still a draft) and it around 30k words already, I'm thinking it will be around 90k or 100k when done. But it is a work in progress
Jared is an amazing musician, viola player in an orchestra, but he is also the step son of Mark Sheppard, owner of Sheppard Inc. the richest real state developer in the country. Jared has his life mapped out for him: school, college, MBA. He always knew his stepfather plans for him intended a corporate life in the company, he just didn't expected it to come so soon. He now has to decide between breaking out of his shell of shyness and finally confront Mark, taking charge of his own life, or once again following the road chosen for him. Despite his past that decision will be affected by Jensen, a guitar player, with lots of confidence and swing. After meeting, the two man realize they share a great passion for music, life and each other. Jensen might be just the kind of person Jared needed to turn his life and his sense of worth around. Unfortunately, Mark is not the kind of guy willing to lose an investment that easily. The pair will count on the help of dear friends Chris and Chad, also musicians, and Alonna, a fierce journalist.
Warnings: There will be plenty sex scenes (consensual) and minor violence down the road
Turnaround Time:Will be writing for quite a some time.
It's been a long time away from LJ ans fics, hopefully I'll meet good friends here :)
Title: Carve a Home for Two in Your Heart
Fandom: Supernatural RPS
Pairing: J3, but also Jeff/Jensen, Jensen/Jared and vague mentions of Jensen/others
Word Count: 32,000
Warnings: Violence, cursing, very brief and not graphic attempted non-con, several graphic sex scenes, all bottom Jensen. And Chad.
Type of Beta: Spelling, grammar, and any glaring british phrases weeded out. Also just a general idea of whether the story works, and if there are giant plot holes or issues.
Turnaround time: Around a week if possible. My posting date is the 9th June *cue flailing and panic attacks* so the sooner the better really.
Summary: Jared is not James Bond. He’s got a Chad instead of a Moneypenny for one thing and prefers sleeping with guys for another. Being a spy though, makes it tricky to find a guy to sleep with who doesn’t secretly want to kill you.
Jeff is not a hitman. He doesn’t kill people for money. Not anymore. He’s retired. He owns a restaurant and just happens to have excellent knife skills. His relationship skills however are a little rusty.
Jensen is not a twink. And he’s not Julia Roberts. He just likes sex and money. And guys that are older than him, and bigger than him. And can willingly pay fourteen hundred dollars to spend the night with him.
None of them are looking for love, but they’re going to find it anyway.
Found two very kind betas thankyou :)
So far the story has 35.850 words and is about refugees. J2 AU. NC 17, Dub-con, Non-Con
I won´t lie to you this is some work to do since english isn´t my native language I need help with the spelling and the frasing.
Genre: Hurt/comfort, canon divergence set in season four
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Castiel
Type of beta you'd like: Mainly I need someone to look over the spelling and grammar. My SPaG isn't terrible, but it would certainly help to have someone look it over. Any other comments are always welcome, of course. :)
Length: Multi chapter, ~5,000 words
Short Summary: When Castiel resurrects Dean, Dean is already a demon. He hopes that he made the right choice resurrecting Dean. He hopes the Righteous man will save the world, not bring it to ruin. Together they discover what it means to be human and what they mean to each other.
Note: This is not a dark fic. Dean is a demon, but not evil. Castiel is asexual and there is a discussion of sexual boundaries, but explicit content.
Turnaround Time: My posting date is May 25th. I know I shouldn't have waited to the last minute, but any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
Genre: Gen casefic
Pairings or Characters: Claire Novak and Castiel
Type of beta you'd like: Spelling and grammar, US-ENGLISH/Americanisms, characterisation, as well as pointing out if anything is unclear.
Length: 17000 words split over 6 chapters.
Short Summary: Somewhere in America, a little girl is being used as an angel's vessel, and Claire Novak wants to save her. She enlists the help of Castiel, and together they follow the angel's trail to a nature reserve. The story contains child abuse, vessel consent issues, possession, some violence, all in all an R-rating.
Turn Over: I would like to post sometime in the next month.
Genre: Slash, Dark Romance
Pairings or Characters: J2
Type of beta you'd like: SPaG
Length: 20k, maybe even a little less after the final edit.
Short Summary: In an abandoned, skeletal barn, surrounded by pale grey cornfields, 17-year-old reject Jared Padalecki finds unexpected solace in the company of a badly injured, wanted murderer. While Jared tries to escape his life of abuse by nursing the rugged man back to health, the police closes in on Jensen Ackles, or, as the media calls him, "The Lone Star Devil". Warnings: Dark Romance, violence (domestic and other), non-con (OC/Jared)
Turnaround Time: Posting date is 6/24, so 6/20 at the latest. I'm still editing though, so I probably won't be able to send it to you before early June...
Preferred Contact: PM and then email.
Type of beta you'd like: SPaG, plot, hit it with a hammer.
Length: 45-50k, individual chapters are ~2-5k. If you'd rather not tackle the whole thing, I'm just as happy to send you a chapter or two. The first two chapters have been beta'd already, but more doesn't fit with her schedule at the moment. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Short Summary: This is a rather dark fic with lots of angst and little comfort. There is some dub-con that ends up going non-con (though not explicitly stated). Also beware of psychological torture and canon-typical violence. I can't really post a summary here due to challenge rules, but I'd be happy to tell you more privately if you're interested.
Turnaround Time: Sometime in early June, but I'd rather get it out of the way as soon as I can.
Preferred Contact: PM and then email.
Genre:Slash, College AU
Type of beta you'd like: grammar, plot, OC/IC
Length: Stand alone , 9K+
Short Summary: Jared doesn't do relationships, no matter how many times his college friends to to set him up with the new guy in their acting class. He had a long term relationship in high school and it was awful. But what happens when old flames turn up and it turns out everything he thought about relationships was wrong?
Turnaround Time: No rush. Just wrote the story for myself and thought I should get it out there :P
Pairings or Characters: Jared/Gen/Danneel/Jensen
Type of beta you'd like: Plot/voice/hit it with a hammer
Length: 7300 words
Short Summary: Jensen has a great life. He and his wife Danneel just bought a place in Austin next door to Jensen's childhood best friend and his wife, who happens to be Danneel's girlfriend. Things are going great until the ladies suggest moving from threesome to foursome, and Jensen is forced to confront some feelings that he'd been denying for years.
Notes: This is my first RPS fic, and I basically need someone to hit it with a hammer and help me to find all the areas to tweak it and make it special. I'm really nervous about it.
Genre: Slash, incest, underage
Pairings or Characters: John/Dean, John/Sam, Sam/Dean.
Type of beta you'd like: Someone who loves reading and writing kink, esp involving underage Wincest and Daddycest. Mainly need someone to bounce ideas off, tell me what works and what doesn't. Is something not kinky enough or is perfectly dark and creepy and "wrong" and sexy.
Length: Most should be around 2000-3000 words I hope, current fic is just over 6000
Time Frame: Would like fairly quick turnaround of just a few days, certainly no more than a week at most.
Short Summary: Dean is 14 when John starts feminizing him and treating him as his 'little girl', wanting him to wear skirts and dresses and girls underwear after school and at night. Sam is almost 11 when John decides to make him his lover but there are things John wants to do before taking his youngest son into his bed.
Notes/warnings: Very kinky series involving underage Sam and Dean in sexual relationships with John. Other pairings (at this stage) also include some minor Sam/Dean and Sam/Bobby.
Feel free to PM me if you don't want to leave a comment. Have 2 fics ready for beta and more planned but not written.
Rating: Teen for some action and canon-typical gore and language
Genre: Action, Casefic, genderbend Dean, canon compliant
Pairings or Characters: Sam, Dean, Cas, female!Dean, minor OCs. Possible Dean/Cas epilogue, but I'm waiting to see if it goes there
Type of beta you'd like: basic grammar and spelling, internal continuity, word choice, keeping female!Dean characterization as close to canon Dean as possible. I would also really love if one or two people just want to jump on and read as cheerleaders.
Length: 4-5 chapters. Currently 10,224 words, should be complete between 12,000 and 14,000
Time frame: The final is due for the WIP BigBang in July. However, since it's still considered a work in progress, if a few people are willing to alpha read/cheer-lead ASAP, even if they don't make the huge time commitment to fully beta, it would be helpful.
Short Summary: It's the summer of 2009, and Dean and Sam are investigating a shore town on the East Coast where blue lights seem to be causing a strange amnesia. While still investigating, Dean steps through a portal to an alternate universe, while his double, a girl, steps out on this side. The story then bounces back and forth between the two universes as both versions of Sam and Cas try to learn to trust a Dean they don't recognize, but who keeps treating them with familiarity. The formatting very much resembles an episode, with them continuing to try to defeat the creature responsible.
Because I am new to this group, I am open to any reasonable suggestions for file exchange, and would be willing to swap fics or beta for others.
Rating: Ummm, PG right now but I haven't gotten to the wincest part. So, that could change. No smut is planned. At worst I expect a final rating of R, just to be safe.
Genre: Wincest, Mystery
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Sam
Type of beta you'd like: plot flow, Dean characterization (seriously, I might need some reassurance with that), grammar (if you wish)
Length: multi-chapter (13.5k done, est. 20-25k when completed), chapters are about 9-10k each
Time Frame: I have a Final Draft due for the Wincest Big Bang at the end of August. I want to be polishing it up before then.
Short Summary: Dean goes blind for no reason and, despite the fact that a simple cleansing fixes the problem the first time, it keeps happening. Then he starts getting worse, losing more than just his sight, and Sam finds that he must accept a truth he has been denying all of his life, the one that had sent him running to Stanford, in order to save his brother from himself. Set shortly after Dean returns from Purgatory.
Title: The Sulphur on Your Sleeve
Rating: PG or PG-13
Genre: Crossover/Fusion with Dark Angel
Pairings or Characters: Dean, Sam, Max, Logan, Alec (no pairings planned as of yet)
Type of beta you'd like: plot flow, grammar (if you wish), Dark Angel canon (only a general understanding is needed), Max characterization
Length: multi-chapter (21k done, est 30-40k when completed), chapters are about 5-7k each
Time Frame: I have a Final Draft due for the WIP Big Bang in July. I am currently doing a reworking of the first chapter.
Short Summary: Dean was born an X1. After Sam implies he no longer wants to be brothers he doesn't see Dean again. Five years later Sam is still looking for his missing big brother. Dean never took on the Mark of Cain. He surrendered to Manticore instead. This is the story of how they found each other again.
I am open to using email and google docs to exchange files (or make a suggestion if you prefer something else). I am also willing to do a fic swap and beta something of yours in exchange. PM me or comment below if you are willing to help me out.
