Need a beta?
I just thought I’d put it out there that I’m more than happy, at any time, for anyone to message me re: betaing any of their work. I’ve worked with some absolutely wonderful people in my time in fandom and I’d be thrilled to do the same for others! Of course, I’d only be comfortable working within fandoms I’m familiar with (Whitechapel, Sherlock, Skyfall, In the Flesh, Harry Potter, Lewis, Endeavour) but if you’ve got any fanfic—of any length, pairing, rating, kink, etc—and need/want a beta, don’t hesitate to contact me if you fancy!
I can’t guarantee that I’d take every project on (depending on my own project commitments, uni work, research, etc) but I’m always happy to consider taking on a little extra work! I also try to set the boundaries/guidelines out before beginning the editing: what sort of critique do you want? Comprehensive or just peripheral? Focus on character, plot, typos, etc? Do you have a timeframe you need me to stick to? My natural editing style that I use for myself is rather full on but I always do my best to align my habits to what you and your work need.
Contacting me through the askbox is probably the most reliable. I always (always) respond to messages on Tumblr, so if I don’t get back to you, Tumblr’s probably eaten the message. Feel free to resend, my askbox is always open. :)
