(working) Title: Remember To Let It In
Genre: Hurt/Comfort, Kidfic, Family!Angst
Rating: K+, with mentions of alcohol abuse
Characters: Sam, Dean, John
Pairing: N/A
Type of beta needed: Plot, voice, flow
Length: One-shot, ~1000 words, unfinished
Short Summary: When Dean is drunk and sobbing with the MoC on his arm, Sam remembers one of the times John was actually a good Dad, and tries to do the same for Dean. Long flashback to early childhood (Sam is 3ish, Dean is 6ish), will probably end with S9!Sam putting S9!Dean to bed and tucking him in.

Willing to fic-swap! (No hard limits, all ratings and pairings)

Thank you!!

Hello! I have a WIP, not for a challenge, just a WIP, and I am extremely passionate about this project. I’d love to have a beta look over the chapters as I submit them. I only have a chapter up now and am working on the second one. The fic is about terrorism and is a mystery, angsty and dramatic with brothertouching and all. Destiel, and loads of love for Sam!

This is an AU fic and it doesn’t have ghosts and monsters. TFW are roommates with Doctor!Cas, mechanic/bartender!Dean and Pre-Law!Sam. I am a doctor so Cas is no problem for me. I have researched all I can about Sam and Stanford and pre-law and also the FBI and USA judiciary because knowledge of American judicial system is important. The beta need not know all these things in detail but I'll welcome all suggestions and corrections.

I’m linking the first chapter on the title, so you can read what’s already there. I believe my biggest problem is typos and punctuation because I kinda miss these mistakes while revising by myself.

Title: Fireflies in the Dark
Destiel AU, Angst, Mystery, Suspense, Drama, Romance, Fluff, Family, Hurt/Comfort, Brotherly Love, Brothertouching, Slow Build Destiel, Sam-Cas friendship, Emotional Hurt/Comfort
Pairings: Dean/Cas, other background/offscreen pairings with mostly mentions, like Sam/Jess, John/Mary, Mary/OMC, Dean/Aaron, Cas/Meg, Cas/Amelia, but these pairs will not have much action as such.
Characters: Sam, Dean, Cas, Claire, Ruby, Mary, Bobby in bigger roles, and many more. Original characters will also be present.
Terrorism, Violence, Rape/Non-con Elements, Depression, Amputation, Permanent Injury, Whumped boys, Emotional Manipulation, Drug Addiction, Substance Abuse, PTSD, Character Death, Self-Harm, Suicidal Thoughts, Sex, Medical Jargon, Idiots in Love
Type of beta you'd like: grammar, plot, characterisation, my typos that are worthy of being declared sins, and someone who can help me with smut because I feel like I'm rubbish at it.

Length: This is a multi-chapter WIP. I have no estimated length, just a full plot, and it's going to be a long fic. I usually write chapters between 3000-5000 words.
Short Summary: When Dr Castiel Novak receives his last patient for the day at the ER, he doesn't know just how drastically his life is about to change. Meanwhile, Special Agent Robert Singer has some terrible news to deliver to the Winchester boys.
As each new breath and heartbeat becomes a miracle and a luxury, Cas and the Winchesters learn to live, love and sacrifice. They learn to be grateful for what they have and to hope. Because sometimes hope is the only thing that can keep you going.

Turnaround Time: I'll only be sending individual chapters every week or so and not the whole story at once so hopefully 3-4 days?

Thank you!
Title: TBA
Genre: Romantic Drama, Alternative Universe
Pairings: Castiel/Dean Winchester, Brief Castiel/Chuck, Past Castiel/April, Past Castiel/Meg
Rating: Explicit
Word Count: A bit over 20K
Warnings: Angst, alcohol use, low self-esteem/self-doubt, homophobic language, abuse, John is a crappy father.
Summary: Castiel Novak is devastated when Meg broke up with him, and now even his rebound won't call him back. Everywhere he goes in Lawrence reminds him of painful memories, so it's finally time to leave this city for good and he's not looking back. Everything goes great until he has to return for work and meets a random (and quite hot) stranger at a local bar. Then he starting thinking that maybe Lawrence isn't so bad after all.
I've read a lot of Dean/Cas stories where Dean is struggling and Cas helps him through it. This is no different except its from Cas's POV.

I'm looking for someone to help beta for plot holes and voice, but also to help me catch typos and grammar mistakes.

I only have it about 1/4 edited myself, so I'd like to get a beta on each 1/4 of the fic as I edit it, so I'd send you ~5k at a time.

I'd be happy to do a fic swap if anyone else needs a Beta for DCBB. Happy to beta anything w/o major character death in it.

Beta Found. Thanks!!

Title: The Healing Horn
Genre: Romance, Slash, mentions of Mpreg, Canon-divergent
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Castiel, Sam/Jessica
Type of beta you'd like: mild SPAG, plot and character consistency, flow
Length: 22k word one-shot
Short Summary: Dean has always been 100% convinced that unicorns don’t exist. He’s never met a hunter who had seen one. When he sees the headline about unicorn sightings in some woods, he only goes because he’s curious. He stays for the cute waiter. When people in town start getting healed and claiming the unicorn did it, things get a little more complicated. If there is a unicorn, what does it want, and why is it fixated on his new favorite waiter?

Canon divergent: everything pre-canon happened, but there was no apocalypse and Jess never died in a fire. Sam went on a couple of one-off hunts with Dean after college, but he is working as a lawyer now, John died of a heart attack a few years prior to the story, and Dean is now hunting alone. Also Cas is not an angel.

My posting date is October 8, which is less than a month away. Needless to say, the need is beginning to become dire.

I forgot to mention when I originally posted that I am open to swapping beta for beta for anyone that needs it.

Title: Seducing an Earl (Romancing a Rogue)
Genre: Slash; Angst; Romance; Fluff; Drama; AU; RPS
Pairings or Characters: Jensen/Misha
Type of beta you'd like: Plot, Grammer, General story flow
Length: WIP Multi chaptered fic. The number of words per chapter might vary anywhere from 1000-4000 or more.
Short Summary: In regency era England, Jensen must choose between the path chosen for him (marrying the girl his Father has picked) or the path that his heart has chosen (renouncing his inherited title of Earl and following Misha to the ends of the earth).
Turnaround Time: Hopefully within a week, but I am very flexible.

Ultimately I'm really looking for a partner who will embark on this journey with me. I'll be starting school in a few weeks so it'll be slow, but I'm looking for someone who will work with me on the general content of the story, while also helping to keep me on track. I'm hoping that if we work well together during this story, we might work together on other stories as well.

I usually upload my stories to AO3, but I always link on my LJ as well.

If this interests you, feel free to pm me.

Please PM me if you're interested :)

Title: Angels and Demons

Pairings or Characters: Angel!Dean/Demon!Sam, background Ruby/Anna

Type of beta you'd like: editing, grammar, punctuation etc. I'm also interested in having someone take a look at it in terms of flow and plot. I think my story could really benefit from feedback as far as areas that need to be worked on, plot points and the like. If anyone would be interested in being an Alpha reader, telling me what to work on with the plot but not betaing for grammar, OR being a beta but not an alpha reader, that is perfectly fine with me.

Length: ~7K

Short Summary: Angels and demons are considered to be animals by humans, who don't understand their true intelligence. When Ruby has to put her pet demon, Sam, into a kennel for a few days she doesn't expect much to come of it. While at the kennel Sam encounters an angel, Dean. Angels and demons mate for life, and Sam never expected to find his mate to be an angel. But now that he has he won't let anyone or anything separate them. When Ruby meets Dean's owner, Anna, she realizes this might just work out well for everyone involved.

Warnings/notes: Implied sexual content (nothing explicit), Mpreg (Dean), Dean/Sam, minor/background Anna/Ruby, POV alternates between all four, angst, happy ending

Turnaround Time: The draft is due for submission on August 14
20 July 2015 @ 09:52 pm
Title: Undecided
Genre: Fluff, kid-fic, pre-series
Pairings or Characters: Dean, Sam, Jo (as kids), Ellen
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar, voice, make sure everything sounds okay
Short Summary: Dean, Sam and Jo spend the afternoon playing together.
Turnaround Time: Due the July 22. I know this is short notice, but the story isn't that long (should be around 2k when it's done.)
20 July 2015 @ 08:41 am
Title: Strangers in a Stranger Land (I think)
Genre: Drama, AU, angst, romance.
Pairings or Characters: Cas/Dean, Sam/Jess, Jo, mentions of Mary/John
Type of beta you'd like: Someone who can pick apart the plot, identify weaknesses, help with overall grammar/sentence structure, and someone who has a good grasp on writing dialogue.
Length: Multi chapter, at the moment I have around 10,000 words. Likely going to be around the 50-70k mark. (I need someone for the long haul!)
Short Summary: Castiel works for a theatre magazine in London, and until he meets Dean this is the most complicated aspect of his life. Dean in homeless, disconnected from his family, and in search of the truth surrounding the death of his mother. In the midst of a complicated journey of self discovery, Castiel and Dean find answers in the most unlikely places.
Turnaround Time: I will be sending chapters as and when they are written, as opposed to sending a full, completed fic. So I'm looking for someone who can maybe commit to one or two hours a week? As I'm not writing for a particular deadline I'm pretty flexible with turnaround times.
13 July 2015 @ 12:44 am
Title: (No Title Yet) - I'm searching. No, me, the author. I'm searching for a title. :D
Genre: AU/Drama/Angst
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Castiel, also general cast of SPN characters. Sorta.
Type of beta you'd like: Hit me hard. Plot, pacing, would you even bother to read this?, continuity, plot holes. Or you can just do grammar. I like it all.
Length: ~46k, so, novella.
Short Summary: Dean's a contractor and proud new owner of Singer Construction in Lawrence, KS, who's resigned himself to being alone until an old client of Bobby's crashes into his life and upsets everything he thinks he knows to be true.
Turnaround Time: This is for the DCBB, so I'd like it back by 8/1/15
04 July 2015 @ 09:47 pm
Title of the fic: Joking not joking document title is Dean, Plain and Tall

Category of your fic: A/B/O Arranged marriage romance!

Pairing (if applicable): Benny Lafitte/Dean Winchester

Type of beta you'd like: Tell me if it makes sense, tell me if the last third is paced right, just generally tell me if you like it or not. I've been out of this fandom a long time so I'm out of touch with the norms and really just want another set of eyes (or two)! Also a title that is not Dean, Plain and Tall, haha.

Length: 15k

Short Summary: Dean is an omega with a bride price. Benny pays. THEN they fall in love. Mostly. Also there is a LOT of housekeeping porn.

Turn-around time need for fic: Next couple weeks I guess?? Not for a challenge or anything so you don't have a deadline and should work at your own pace!

Contact Info: Shoot me an email please, it's my username at gmail. Thank you!!!

AN: It's dirty and there are some references to coerced/non-consensual sex.  If you have another trigger you are worried about or want more detail about those, you can also email me, no questions asked!

Warnings: Stalking, abduction, Dark!Jared, top!Jared, bottom!Jensen, sociopath, explicit content, language, mental illness, blind Jensen dub-con, obsessive behavior, unhealthy relationship dynamics, stockholm syndrome. happy(ish) ending
Type of beta: Plot, grammar, flow. I have four chapters posted on AO3, and one additional chapter written. I feel like it could benefit from a beta for grammar and for some aspects that may be confusing. I need a beta to give me some idea if everything is coming together in a way that makes sense.
Length: WIP, ~18,000
Short Summary: Jensen is a blind author living a reclusive life. Jared is mentally unstable and from the moment he sees Jensen he knows they are meant to be. He abducts Jensen and intends to show the man he loves that they are going to be together forever. Despite his better judgement Jensen finds himself falling for the man who is keeping him hostage.
Turnaround Time: There is no deadlines I need to meet, so no real rush.

Hi! So my co-author and I, spn_bookworm, have finally finished writing a bit of our fic, and are in need of a beta.

The fic will include Destiel (since it's the DCBB) but it's also heavy on the SamnDean brotherliness. It's also AU, dystopian, and I'll try to provide as much details as I can here, though I can't say much because we aren't having reveals until the August end.

Genre: Action, angst, family, romance, some hurt/comfort
Pairings or Characters: Dean/Cas. Mentions of Sam/Jess, Sam/Madison, Dean/Jo and Dean/Cassie. All these pairings are mostly just brushed over, though, and Sam/Jess is a little more important than the others, but isn't throughout the fic.
Characters include Sam, Dean, Cas in major roles, and John, Mary, Bobby, Charlie, Kevin, Jo and Azazel in smaller roles.
Type of beta you'd like: grammar, plot (we'd love comments on our world-building), characterisation
Length: Big bang length, and I'd assume at least 50k words
Short Summary: It's a dystopian AU. As in -- there are hunters and angels and demons, but it's all different from what's on the show. There's themes of slavery and torture and there's romance and angst and tears and fluff and sacrifice. The fic ends hopeful, but sad. Destiel is slow-burn. There are a lot of broments involved. I can't say much here, but for a full description of the plot, PM either one of us, and we will explain!
Rating/warnings: R to NC-17/mentions of slavery, torture, PTSD, depression, major character death, possible explicit sex and nudity
Turnaround Time:
Drafts are due August 15th. Posting begins October, I think. So last week of September is cool. We can send the fic over in chunks, so it’s easier to beta.

Thank you!

Title: TBD
Genre: Humour/Fluff/Kidfic/Gen
Characters/Pairings: John/Mary
Type of beta: Plot, some grammar, American checking
Length: 1.5k
Short Summary: John and Mary and Dean, plus a daughter on the way.
Turnaround Time: Before July 15 (so just under a month)
I don't want to put a lot of details in the post because this is for SummerGen 2015, and it's anonymous. But it's short and fluffy with a couple of darker spoilers for the later seasons, I'd especially like someone to look over those and see if the foreshadowing it too heavy handed. There are a couple of really corny jokes and I'm wondering how corny is too corny.

Hi, I'm still looking for a beta for my Case story Big Bang fic. Wee!chesters/Teen!chesters, gen, unflattering portrayal of John Winchester. Sam POV.

Category: Gen

Genre: Case fic, wee!chesters. Sam is 10, Dean is 14.

Type of beta needed: continuity, pace, flow, grammar, etc.

Length: 51,698

Turn-around time: Sometime in the next 2 weeks?

Contact Info: DM me here and we can make arrangements. The fic is already posted in Google Docs and ready for your edits!
Current Location: Two Lane Blacktop
Current Mood: anxiousanxious
Current Music: Strange Brew - Cream
Title: Strange Brew
Genre: Wee!Chester / Casefic
Pairings or Characters: Gen - Sam Winchester, Dean Winchester, John Winchester
Type of beta you'd like: Plot, spelling, flow
Length: Novella - 51,506 words
Short Summary: The Winchester family briefly settles into Tully, New York for what John believes is a vengeful spirit. The real case turns out to be much more complicated than that and, as is so often the case, the youngest Winchester is caught in the middle.
Turnaround Time: A month?

Notes: I took the opportunity to use this big bang to continue my (previously unbeta'ed) series "Winchester and Sons: The Teen Years." This fic briefly references events in prior episodes but it stands alone.

Likewise, for most of my preseries work I use John Winchester's Journal as a reference point. I do reference events in that work, but they're mentioned in passing (mostly as a starting point or guidepost) and it isn't necessary to have access to that book in order to beta this work.

Please note: This fic does contain a negative portrayal of John Winchester. I can explain further in correspondence, if you're considering the fic, but folk should be aware of this before taking the project on.

This fic is up in Google Docs; I'm ready to share it with an available beta.

Title: Dreams and Nightmares
Genre: SPN - Case Fic

During their investigation, John makes a mistake. Will the Winchesters become the next victims? If so how will they stop the creature before they become the next victims.
Turnaround Time: No later than June 5, 2015. My posting date is at the end of June.
13 May 2015 @ 08:50 pm
Title: Ain't Seen Nothing Yet
Genre: RPS AU
Pairings or Characters: Jared/Jensen, other SPN RPF characters, the Ackles family
Type of beta you'd like: Plot flow, do we care about these characters, is it interesting enough to keep reading? My previous beta fell through and I have a friend outside the fandom who offered to assist with SPAG and general story stuff but would love a read-through from someone in the fandom too!
Length: ~21k
Short Summary: Early on a Wednesday morning every June, Jensen piles into a truck with his best friend Chris and a couple hundred pounds of sunscreen, toilet paper, water, and camping gear. They drive 700 miles northeast to spend 4 days in close quarters with 85,000 other music-loving people from all over the world, wringing every last bit of excitement from the sticky-hot days and neon-streaked nights. Every Bonnaroo is a unique experience, but this year Jensen’s going to encounter something completely different: the boy next door. [includes sexual content, alcohol, and brief drug use]
Turnaround time: This is for the SPN/J2 Big Bang and my scheduled post date is July 31, so early-mid June would be ideal. You can PM me or send an email to electriclita (at) livejournal (dot) com :)
