Title: Undecided; working title "Useless Confessions"Genre: Gen with past Wincest, Case fic, early seasonsPairings or Characters: Dean, Sam, in-episode side charactersType of Beta: Flow and readability. How do men sound when they talk? Dean voice especially? If there's anything you see that I missedLength: Stand-alone, but part of a multi-chapter work. This chapter only is for a mini-bang. Around 7,400 words.Short Summary: Kind of reading in-between the lines of the episode "Asylum". How did the good Dr. Ellicott screw with Sam's head? How does Dean react to it? Basically just expounding on the episode a bit, looking at it from a different angle.My posting date isn't until (Asexual Mini-Bang) isn't until the end of April or so, but the sooner I can get this fully edited and finished, the better. The day after the final draft for this is due, the first draft for the Big Bang is due, so I'm on a fairly tight time table. I'd love to be able to present a final draft to whoever does the art for it.Thanks, so much. Good luck on whatever it is you've got going, whether it's fandom related or not.(x-posted to spn_betas)
Title: Of Opulent Minds and Decaying Souls
Genre: Hurt/comfort, Seriel Killer AU
Pairings or Characters: None
Type of beta you'd like: Grammar, Spelling, and someone to kick me in the rear when plot fails me
Length: Multi-chapter - I've written about 5,000 so far but have no clue how far this will take meWarnings: Mental Health Issues (Sociopathic Tendencies), Violence, Gore
Short Summary: Dean's sitting opposite him, green eyes peering at Sam’s face inquisitively. “You didn’t pull the trigger.”“Not today.”“But maybe one day?” The question is asked with no malice, just impassive inquisition and it, makes Sam feel cold all over.“Not today.” The answer seems to satisfy his brother because he nods slowly and finally breaks eye contact to stare at his hands. They are stained with blood, practically coated in the stuff but Dean doesn’t seem concerned. He’s had blood on his hands for a long time.“Why them Dean?” Sam wonders aloud and the question startles himself more than it does his big brother. He’s not sure why he asked. He learned a long time that the more he knew the more difficult it became to clean up the mess. To put the gun down. To walk through the front door. Dean shrugs nonchalantly. “They were home.”
Turnaround Time: This isn't for anything specific but I'm finally getting an AO3 account and I figured I should use it. Sometimes I bang out a couple chapters in a day and other times it take me a week to write a sentence.
I’m from Iceland and I have a dyslexia. I’m writing my first two stories right now and I’m hoping to find someone to help my since english has a lot of different grammar rules than icelandic.
I have already started posting them on fanfiction, livejournal and AO3 but people over there suggested that I get a beta.
Title: Dean’s Angel
Genre: Hurt/comfort, family
Pairings or Characters: None. but if the beta is willing to help it might turn into Destiel
Type of beta you'd like: Mostly grammar, spelling, pov. I wouldn’t say no to help with the plot or flow. Basically what ever you are willing to give.
Length: Multi-chapter - estimated number of words: I have no idea, it started out as a one-shot but now it’s a six chapters long.
Short Summary: Something happened to Dean when he was one-year old that ended with him seeing dead people. This story is about how seeing ghost helps Dean become a even better hunter and how he can hide his abilities from other people while unknown to Dean, the angel’s (mostly Castiel) try to find out what happened all those years ago.
Turnaround Time: I don’t know, I just try to write when I have the time, and if I get a beta then I wouldn’t rush them to finish looking it over.
Title: The half-brother
Genre: Hurt/comfort, family, Angst
Pairings or Characters: Hopefully Destiel and Sam/?, but I’m not sure how good I am at writing romance.
Type of beta you'd like: Again, mostly grammar, spelling, pov or/and flow. Basically what ever you are willing to give.
Length: Multi-chapter - estimated number of words: I have no idea,
Short Summary: High-school AU: John left when Mary got pregnant with Dean. Few years later he came back with a new family. Now, almost 17 years later, Sam and Dean learn what it means to be brothers. ( Inspired by One three hill).
Warning: Sam and John are assholes in the beginning, but won’t stay that way in the end.
Title: tbaGenre: Space AU, Alien!Castiel, Prisoner!DeanPairings or Characters: DestielWarnings: sex (The fic starts out with a softcore foursome scene that doesn't get very far. I might be including some heavy Destiel action later in the fic. It will not dominate my writing. I promise that there is plenty of plot.)Type of beta you'd like: punctuation, grammar, and spelling; though I would gladly welcome any additional input offeredLength: 20,000Short Summary:Castiel has been hiding from himself for a very long time. Each time he drops a convict off at the nearest lockdown he tells himself that they deserve it, even though the idea of a fair trial died out centuries ago. He ignores the guilt he feels when he finds a suitable vessel among the damned, when he bribes the guards to purchase it, and when he's walking away from his former bretheren laden down with credits while the vessel is led away to be hollowed out for use. They deserve it. He deserves it.Megla, his first mate and epic pain in the ass only friend, has been searching for a Nazp'sad (a human vessel capable of a true bonding) without his knowledge. She is convinced that the right one will pull her Captain out of his decades long funk.But, when they finally find Dean will he still be worth all the trouble?Turnaround Time: October 1st, I'm writing this for the Dean/Castiel Big Bang and that is the first day of posting. I expect to have a 100% rough draft by the end of the month.Contact Info: email@example.com
Hello guys o/Category of the fics you'd need beta'd: Slash AU J2 fic, it's a love storyPairing of the fics you'd need beta'd (if applicable): Jensen/Jared and Chris/ChadType of beta needed: Basically grammar and phrasing, any intake about the plot is welcomed :)Length of the fic that needs a beta: Multi-chapter on the writting, around 30k right now, but probably getting to 90k or 100kTurn-around time need for fic: Still gonna be writting it for a while XDContact Info: firstname.lastname@example.org or you can message me hereShort Summary: Jared is an amazing musician, viola player in an orchestra, but he is also the step son of Mark Sheppard, owner of Sheppard Inc. the richest real state developer in the country. Jared has his life mapped out for him: school, college, MBA. He always knew his stepfather plans for him intended a corporate life in the company, he just didn't expected it to come so soon.

Despite his past that decision will be affected by Jensen, a guitar player, with lots of confidence and swing. After meeting, the two man realize they share a great passion for music, life and each other. Jensen might be just the kind of person Jared needed to turn his life and his sense of worth around. Unfortunately, Mark is not the kind of guy willing to lose an investment that easily.

Title: Angels Fall with Broken WingsGenre: Hurt/comfort, canon divergence set in season fourPairings or Characters: Dean/CastielType of beta you'd like: Mainly I need someone to look over the spelling and grammar. My SPaG isn't terrible, but it would certainly help to have someone look it over. Any other comments are always welcome, of course. :)Length: Multi chapter, ~5,000 wordsShort Summary: When Castiel resurrects Dean, Dean is already a demon. He hopes that he made the right choice resurrecting Dean. He hopes the Righteous man will save the world, not bring it to ruin. Together they discover what it means to be human and what they mean to each other.Note: This is not a dark fic. Dean is a demon, but not evil. Castiel is asexual and there is a discussion of sexual boundaries, but explicit content.Turnaround Time: My posting date is May 25th. I know I shouldn't have waited to the last minute, but any help would be greatly appreciated. :)
