Beta (and friend) wanted  
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!

Ooh, this look really interesting. I'd be happy to help and am happy to get to know someone new as well. What is the deadline for posting? (I don't think it will be an issue, but want to be sure I can give your story the time it needs.)

I'd be happy to help! You have to promise to let me squeak at you about mine, too. Don't have to do any beta-ing or anything, but squeaking is virtually inevitable, since it'll be my first Bang. But I'd love to help!

I would be happy to hear about it! I love the writing process and would love to be a sounding board for you if you need it. Please email me at keleiter@gmail.com and we can chat more.

If you need another SPaG beta, and maybe more, give me a holler. I'm trying to ease my way back into fandom, and beta-ing might be helpful for me. That, and your story looks interesting - i love fiction about the end of the world, survival, etc. You can email me at badbastion at gmail.com

Hello, if you still need some help and a friend I'd be willing to help out. I have been working on grammar and structure lately so I can help a little with that, I'm not the best but every bit helps. I like the idea of bouncing ideas around and it could be fun, maybe we could help each other out on that front. Otherwise I think it's just a lot of fun to get to meet your fellow authors and I can be a bit of a cheer leader if you need it. If you are interested just send me an email angelzfury@yahoo.com
