Beta requested  
Hi! I'm Alyndra; I've been a lurker/reader for ages, but a very slow writer; I'm doing it more though, now! You're welcome to check out and tackle anything I've already posted on AO3 here: mostly gen, especially about John Winchester, one het darkfic (described below); I may well write slash/poly in future. Despite posting a few older works from other fandoms recently, I'm pretty much all SPN currently!

I recently signed up for spn_j2_xmas and I'm eyeing spn_reversebang if that goes well, so it'd be great to have a beta I could work with for those (I don't think I'm liable to overwhelm anyone with quantity, lol) but even if you just wanted to work on one thing with me, it'd still be awesomely fantastic!

Title: Drifters (the Sam/Amelia fic you never knew you wanted)
Genre: Drama/Het/Darkfic/Kink
Pairings or Characters: Sam/Amelia, Sam and Dean are lifemates though
Type of beta you'd like: continuity, flow, dialogue: does this sound natural? Like people talk? Does it make sense outside my head?
Length: Multi-chapter: the first five chapters (posted: LJ/AO3) are 8,471 words; the sixth and last chapter, which is what I'd really like feedback on before posting, is 2,843 words.
Short Summary: Amelia is vaguely suicidal. Sam's highest goal is to not destroy the world.
Their sex life is extremely fucked up.

This sounds fascinating. I'd love to give it a shot, if you'll let me.

I have a solid grasp on grammar (and shamelessly diagram sentences to chill out), but tend to lay strict grammar aside in favor of readability and relatability. I've only just started writing, so I can't give you an example of my work, but I promise I'm a much better reader than I am a writer. More practice, after all.

How nitpicky do you want it? I could go solid page of red if you want, or just give suggestions. My only requirement is that I be allowed to periodically squee. :)

Let me know if this works for you!
