    Hi, I'm looking for someone to edit my short story - which might turn into something bigger - for me. It's kind of a mystery story, and I just put it up today. I need someone who can edit it and tell me what they would do to change, or make the story start off stronger. I don't think there are too many grammatical errors, but that is great too.
    Please contact me at scapeloaxo@hotmail.com

    I would really like a beta for my story Fear . I think this could be one of my most popular stories if i spread the news around enough and get enough readers. But I really need someone to edit it.
    Still in need. I have a contest coming up that I want to submit this in to,.

    I need a beta again, preferably someone outside of the GazettE fandom. The fic is slash, but it's light on the smut (in fact, I've only hinted at smut, which is a rarity for me.) Basically, I am looking for a fresh pair of eyes to scan it over for grammar issues, problems with flow, etc. - I want to have this thing as flawless as possible. Anyone interested, please contact me via PM.

    I'll have the final chapter(s) written soon, and I'd like to get some final feedback. Thanks in advance!

    I'd really love a beta for my story idea, which is this;
    I want to write a story that takes place in the Playboy Mansion (I'm thinking 1960's, 1970's, or the 1980's) and revolves around one of Hugh Hefner's main girlfriend's time she spent there. I haven't got much to this idea yet, but I'm leaning towards this girl having some sort of roadblock in her life (drug addiction? dependence of liquor? self-esteem insecurities?). From what I've read, Hef is controlling, or can be if he feels he'll lose the girl he's controlling, and I think that the plot will also include her trying to disconnect from the Playboy lifestyle after realizing it isn't what she wants for herself. Scandalous, I swear.

    If you think you can help and would like to, please PM me. Thanks.

    I'd like a beta for my story Taking The Wheel, if anybody's interested. It's the first chaptered thing I've attempted in a while, so I'd just like a second pair of eyes to check over each chapter before posting, making sure that the grammar etc is okay, that it flows well, and that the continuity is solid. It would help if you were familiar with the BBC show Sherlock to help spot any inconsistencies with canon or out-of-character moments that may happen, but it's not essential.

    As I'd quite like someone to do this over the long term, I'm more than happy to repay any volunteers by being a beta for them, too. Please PM me if you're interested! Cute

    I need someone to proofread my story Superman or a chapter that I've written but not yet posted, please?

    It's kind of a short story and it's in a form of a letter. Please message me if you're interested.

    So, basically I'm on the lookout for a beta. I currently have one at the moment, but she's sort of starting to lean towards the unreliable side of things by leaving it to the last minute before she sends my stuff back. I was hoping to have another one, someone that I could use aswell (sometimes she still leaves a few mistakes, mainly typos) and if I decided to stop using this one girl, would be happy to take on the role full time.

    It's mainly just chapters and one shots; being the dumb person I am sometimes, I started posting a story as I wrote it, rather than doing the smart thing and waiting until it was finished. You'd need to have caught up on the stuff that was previously happening in the story, I think, to maybe get a better understanding of what was going on. This is a link to my profile on ficwad.com; you'd mainly be looking at Please Save Me and I May Be Blind, But I See More Than You Know (a Panic! At the Disco fanfic, so preferably you would have some knowledge about the band, but it's not compulsory) --> /www.ficwad.com/author/128070

    If you're interested, please let me know by replying. It would also be helpful if you have written and posted a story on this site (or any other) that I would be able to read to see if you would be suitable. Also, it may help to read those stories of mine (shitty as they are) to see if what I write is something you would enjoy betaing. And please, you must also be reliable. I don't expect you to drop everything and edit my work the minute you get it, but I would like the person to check their emails atleast once a day.

    I am aware that this contains a whole lot of my boring rambling, and I'm sorry. Again, if you think you would be able to help me out, please pm me.

    Ohiai, I'm Nate, and I'm writing a story that takes place in 2033. And there was a nuclear war. Seven Sanctums rose up out of the rubble and rebuilt. But life is not what it used to be; Now, life is crampped and poor. Teens are put to work at the age of 14, and have very few things. houses are made of metal sheets scavenged rom old rubbled and most people live in appartments. Comet Royal, his parents are dead, he is 16, and in his Sanctum of the god Simm, his sucsessors are corrupt, he must stop them while trying to solve the mystery of what lies under his Sanctum, why the sun never shines in his Sanctum, and what lies beyond the walls of his Sanctum.

    I would like for someone to read and edit it when I finish. Anyone interested? :3

    I'm in need of a beta for my fan-fiction, Phantom of Inferno. If anyone is interested, PM me?

    Title: Phantom of Inferno
    Fandom: High School Musical (JUST USES THE CHARACTERS)
    Rating: PG-13/R (Later Chapters)
    Summary: Waking up in an abandoned room with no recollection of his former self, Troy Bolton vows to find out who he is—even if that knowledge kills him. What he discovers is more than he ever bargained for as he is thrown into a world full of drugs, sex, and death. How will he ever escape when 'escaping' is nowhere close to being an option?

    Okay so I have a paper due on Monday. It's a short essay, 350-450 words. The problem I am having is that I really like the first paragraph, I just think that the second and third need brushing up. I'm not happy with how they're turning out, they don't feel...100%

    So if anyone can help me, give me tips, I'll message you what I have. I'll be working on it and trying to improve it. So if you think you can help me message me. I have to have this done by Monday.

    Thanks in advance!

    I had posted here before, looking for a beta for Henri, had been contacted by a Tom ... (I'm sorry, I can't remember the last name) who had edited, proof read and offered to be the beta for the rest of the story. But this had been before the mibba crash and now my edited chapter, and correspondence with the beta is gone.

    Would anyone else like to volunteer, or direct me to the user I'm looking for? Please help?
