[Current Location |dorm room]
[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

Name: LeiaDianaMinerva
Story Preferences: Will read any, though I prefer slash
Things I won't beta are: RP (don't even ask) I have conceded defeat, so I will beta anything.
Turn around time: I am trying to respond within 24 hrs. However, the longer the story, the longer it takes to beta.
Experience/Credentials/Skills: I am great at finding grammar and spelling issues, but I also focus on plot and characterization.

Any beta requests can be posted to my LJ: http://leiadiana.livejournal.com or Email: leiadianaminerva@gmail.com

pattern_spider
Asking for a beta reader -

Author's Name: pattern_spider
Story Title: Can't think of one.
What's the Story about: A KotOR II fic that, apart from reworking, expanding and stream-lining the game's narrative as the mood takes me, is going to explore that the Dantooine Academy seems to have been riddled with lesbians.
Characters or Pairings: Multiple LSF!Exile/F pairings
Genre: Whatever you see Knights of the Old Republic as.
Rating: Oh, we'll probably hit NC-17 at some stage or another.
Warnings: Only the obvious - Femslash. Plenty of fighting and death up close & personal.
What is needed from a beta: Basically another pair of eyes and a long attention span (I'm starting chapter 4 and the characters have only just made the hyperspace jump to Telos; this is going to take a while) who doesn't mind offering opinions and suggestions. Being comfortable with present-tense prose and a familiarity with Australian/UK spelling wouldn't hurt either.

Warnings: Depressed Dark Lord, feeling a tad sorry for himself. Scary notion, that.

jediknightmuse
Asking for a beta reader:
Author's Name: jediknightmuse (RenoaStormhaven on the theforce.net boards)
Story Title: Serenity in Darkness
Status: Work in progress. Could possibly be as many as three chapters. I'm going to try and keep this short.
What's the Story about: A story about a Jedi Master who survived Order 66 and was able to make a come back. Alternate universe.
Characters or Pairings: Riley Caden (OC), Sark Kele (OC), Adok (OC), mention of Yoda and Obi-Wan, Selaria (OC), possible mention of Obi-Wan and Yoda. Sark, Adok, and Selaria are characters belonging to RP friends of mine.
Genre: General, possibly a bit of romance, possible action/adventure
Rating: G, PG
Warnings: None, really, other than that the time periods are kind of cooky. The prologue takes place after Return of the Jedi, and the chapters will take place during the prequels. Think of it as sort of a memoir.
What is needed from a beta: I can't think of anything specific, really, other than general stuff. Spelling/grammar shouldn't be a huge issue. It would be a big help if the betaer(s) were members/betaers at theforce.net so that I can try and get it archived. If you are a beta reader there, I'll need your usernames when the time comes for me to submit the story. It won't be the biggest deal in the world, though, if you're not one.

Beta Reader Wanted [May. 6th, 2006|04:19 am]
Star Wars Beta Readers

albydarned
Title: The Other Master
Author: Wyndsor Jade
Rating: R
Wordcount: 10,818
Pairing: A/O pre-slash
Genre: Dark, horror
Warnings: Torture, psychosis

Basic Summary:Anakin has been injured, and now it is up to Obi-Wan to look after him as he struggles to recover. However, the halluncinations that Anakin endures whilst under medication begin to reveal a much more darker story revolving around the truth of his assault.

What is needed from a beta: Grammatically, this story is already fine, but I'm concerned about the plot as a whole. It's designed to be a bit confusing, but I want to make sure that it makes sense by the time it's finished ... for example, does the ending work? Are some parts too long, some too short? Is extra explanation needed in certain scenes? I want to make sure that this story actually makes sense; I understand it because I thought of it, but I'm not sure if everyone else will ... eep.

Preferably I would love to have two or maybe even three people look this one over so I can get a more varied idea of how this works. If you're interested, I'll A) love you forever and B) return the favor if you need me to.

Send an e-mail to theslashprincess.AT.hotmail.DOT.com for more info! Thanks!

katydidnt98
Author's Name: Eleventh_Guard (or call me April if you'd rather...)
Story Title: Crash and Burn
What's the Story about: NJO-era AU, Jacen and Anakin Solo stranded on an uncharted planet together during a Sith vs. Jedi war.
Characters or Pairings: Jacen/Anakin, mostly. Little dashes of canon pairings, but not enough to really warrant labeling.
Genre: Romance, action, adventure, drama... uh, almost everything except humor/parody.
Rating: Hard PG-13 to light R
Warnings: Slash, incest, AU
What is needed from a beta: Primarily Anakin's characterization. Let me know if I haven't used enough description, too - I sometimes skimp on that. I don't need a proofreader - I'm mostly looking for someone to help me keep Anakin in-character. I have more practice writing Jacen.

Contact me by leaving a note in one of my LJs... either katydidnt98, my primary LJ, or coruscant_exile, which is where the fic is located. Two chapters are already up. It starts out gen and stays gen for awhile.

Hi all! [Apr. 1st, 2006|06:13 pm]
Star Wars Beta Readers

lanerd

[music |"Go Baek" - Kang Sung Hoon]

I really seem to be making the rounds about the SW communities as of late -

Anywho, I was looking for a beta for a fic which I am currently working on. It is not extremely urgent that I have one this instant; I've got a little more work to do before the first chapter will see the light of day, ha ha. Anyway, this fic is set in the Old Republic, perhaps about the Sith War. Details will be forthcoming as the story develops further.

-K!

I will beta... [Mar. 13th, 2006|11:19 am]
Star Wars Beta Readers

hlglne
Name: helgaleena

Story Preferences: gen, smut, slash, femslash, het, adventure, pwp

Things I won't beta are: mpreg, crossovers unless they are obvious crack

Turn around time: pretty durn fast. within the week

Experience/Credentials/Skills:
A generous amount of my own work is linked at my LJ hlglne
I have an MA and most of a Phd in South Asian lang. and lit, and really enjoy helping those authors whose native tongue is not English. Spent some time in UK, so have some tolerance of Britishisms. Have also beta'd RPS and other fandoms, but prefer GFFA for love. Alien Kinky love a plus. I am insistent on proper grammar, spelling etc., and consider them my strength as a beta. I also reserve the right to refuse to be credited.

I prefer to work out of Yahoo!email... so email me at the address in my LJ.
