Beta offer: Dreaminpng

Name to call you by: dreaminpng (I also go by "Win" or "WK" as the name I use online is "Winchester Kaye" It's a Pacific Rim thing I'm happy to explain in a PM if you're interested)

Best way to contact you: Email or PM is best

Types of fanworks you are willing to beta fic, art, and vids

Genres/styles you will beta: Almost anything! Bring it on! (though for crossovers I prefer to have familiarity with the other fandom, but I won't list them all b/c that would take too long, so we'll deal with it case by case)

Genres/styles you will NOT beta: RPF

Relationships you will beta: Basically all of them

Relationships you will NOT beta: Any incest pairings (may make an exception for dark fic if I like the premise, love me some dark fic)

Content you will NOT beta: Anything where a character under the age of 15 is sexually active (may make an exception for really dark fic if I'm in the mood), Scott being an unrepentant ass or bad friend

Length of works you will beta: Any, though I generally prefer between 1k and 50k.

What you focus on when you beta: For fic, I'm big on readability: typos, poor grammar, overuse of the same descriptors, plot holes, inconsistencies, anything that pulls you out of the fic really. If it makes me go "wait, what?" or have to re-read, I'll comment on that. I'm also a stickler for correct slang - if a fic takes place in America, with American characters, I'll note if UK slang (like "boot" instead of "trunk") is being used, and vice versa. I also really enjoy bouncing ideas off of, so if you're ever stuck, I enjoy chatting to help you tackle the plot point or writing style, or whatever that's giving you trouble. I'm also a stickler for characterization, so if you have a character acting OOC on purpose, it's good to let me know that ahead of time. For artwork I'm big on anatomy and recognizability (even if it's stylized, do you know who the characters are? For vids, I'm big on pacing, timing, transitions, and use of effects. If I think you're over-using a filter or effect, I will let you know.

Sometimes we need a beta who won't hold any punches. Are you willing to be tough and break a work apart if asked, (yes/no): Yes

Other languages you'd be able to beta in: Only English, sorry.

How long a medium sized work typically takes you (about 5k words, a complex completed art piece, 3:45 min vid, 25 min recording): One to three days, depending on what else is going on. If my schedule is particularly tight, I'll let you know it'll take longer.

Any additional information: If I'm going to beta chapters as they come out, rather than the whole fic at the end, I like to see a detailed outline so I can look for inconsistencies early on.

He and his Mom had always been a lot closer to Death than they ever had been to life, then again a person usually is when your three times Great-Grandmother was Death itself.
They're a Myth among myths, beings who've always stuck to the darkest of shadows.
Now, he's being pulled out into some of the lighter ones by the Pack and he's not exactly looking forward to the repercussions from it.

Beta request (multiple fics)

My previously fics posted un'beta'd on AO3. I just started writing TW and my muse is pushing for more ;) Right now I tend toward rare pairings: Peter/Scott, Jackson/Stiles, gen, Dean (SPN)/Derek - I'd like a beta who's open to various pairings and or gen. I also have bunnies to cross TW with BtVS, SGA, and SOA

The piece I'm writing now!

Title or Description:
ATM it's untitled
Genre: action, humor, drama, fluff, kink, PWP, etc
porn?/crossover with Supernatural
Relationships/Characters:
Dean/Derek, (Sam, Chris Argent, Sheriff Stilinski, Parrish, Stiles, Scott)
Length or word count:
2k (still writing but finished it'll be under 5k)
Type of beta you'd like: (SPaG, plot, Ameripick, flow, anatomy, color scheme, rhythm, canon checking)
All, but especially SPaG plot/flow & possibly plotting beyond.
Short summary, preview, or details: A sorta basic porn ABO, true mates kind of thing. Arriving in BH to help an old friend and hunter of their dads, Argent, Dean an alpha catches the scent of an omega, but not just any omega, but his omega. This initally was only suppose to be a few short snippets for a prompt box challenge - however between time running out (due at the end of last month) with le muse dangling porn. Point is I am still writing it. I have an end scene in my head, but there is a possibly of writing more in this - OR in a couple of my other Teen Wolf pieces - link above goes to my AO3

If interested in this one or any all of the others- please lmk here or PM privately - thank you in advance =)

Saying I need a beta is an understatement

Title: Always an Alpha
Genre: Horror/Crime/Adventure
Pairings/characters: Peter/Lydia
Type of beta you'd like: SPag but with an emphasis on making awkward sentences better
Length, or word count: 240k+

Short Summary: A lot of murders are happening in Beacon Hill and it turns out that one of them can only be stopped by Lydia but she needs Peter's help to do so ...

Oh well, started this after 3A ended written a shit load for it, but I had like a dozen betas for it and they all left. Most them anyway just pointed out cosmetic stuff - now after having to take a break out of frustration, real life issues, I tried to read myself into it and there are so many awkward sentences ...

I'd really like someone who loves to be nitpicky go over my sentences and make me do better. Or else I fear I need forever just to fix what I already wrote (mostly because I put in new mistakes :P).

You don't need to be fast, I can wait for you to go through a chapter, I just really need some help and if this takes a year or two that is still better than me on my own never finishing.

Story is outlined and I dare say at least 65 Percent finished. So if you liked the show up until 3A, don't mind a slow built of the main pairing, some minor Allison/Isaac, later on some soft Derek and Stiles bonding more moments, Chris getting some action and a few OCs - you might even like it.
Title or Description: Burnt Heart
Genre: Dresden Files AU/ Urban Fantasy/ Action/ Drama
Relationships/Characters: Sterek Pre-Slash
Length or word count: I'm still writing the last chapter, but it will be about 50000 in total.
Type of beta you'd like: I'm not a native speaker, and this is the first time I write a novel in English from the start instead of translating from Chinese, which is my mother-tongue. I'll need help with SPaG, Ameripick, speech, and just English in general. Some sentences that make sense to me might actually be nonesense to others, and my writing tends to be really bland. This story will need some pretty extensive rewriting.
Those are already a lot of work, but I'd really appreciate feedbacks about the story and the characterization as well. Although this is a Dresden Files AU, you don't really need to be familiar with the books. In fact, it's fine if you haven't read any. I actually need more help with the Teen Wolf part.
Language (if other than English): English
Short summary, preview, or details: Stiles was bored. There was a body in the woods. Scott suddenly had a tattoo he didn't get. They bumped into Derek Hale in the preserve. That's about how it started. Stiles's life was never the same after that.
Other notes:
This is only the first part of the series I have been planning. It'd be great if I can find someone willing to stick around with me till the end, but it's not a requirement. And I've already posted the first nine chapters on AO3, because I didn't know how to find beta readers. I'm willing to make drastic changes to the story though. I've actually wanted to change a lot of things.
No deadline. Plus, I'm a pretty slow writer.


Beta found
Title or Description: Undecided
Genre: A/B/O Verse, angst, mpreg.
Relationships/Characters: Derek/Stiles, mentions of Derek and others and Stiles/OC, Sterek endgame.
Type of beta you'd like: Mostly plot, canon checking, and characterization - I tend to forget, sometimes, the details of what I've actually written. I'm also concerned about the plot, I just want a second opinion. Most of it is written
Language (if other than English): N/A
Short summary, preview, or details: Its a 3 (4?) part story. Part One - Derek and Stiles are mates but Derek rejected Stiles and Stiles has to fight Alpha Hale (Talia Hale) to get the bond broken.

Requesting RPS Beta

Title or Description: Title is Under Construction. It's 2020 and Tyler and Dylan are working together again after they parted ways rather bitterly at the end of Teen Wolf.

Genre: Angst, Humour, Romance, very brief violence/action scenes.

Relationships/Characters: Tyler Hoechlin/Dylan O'Brien, as well as very brief Tyler Hoechlin/Original Female Character at this point.

Length or Word Count: At the moment it is almost 11,000 words with no clear end in sight. I don't imagine it will go any higher than 20,000.

Type of beta you would like: Mostly, due to the size of the story, I would just love someone to read what I have so far and give me their opinion on the plot, where it's heading. I'm fairly confident with SPaG etc, but a bit of Ameripicking might be in order considering I am Australian. I have written this pairing a couple of times before but not to this scale, so any and all help is appreciated.

Short summary, preview, or details: In other news, sources suggest Golden Globe winner Dylan O’Brien and his ex-Teen Wolf co-star Tyler Hoechlin will be once again joining forces for a new film by Johnathan Wall. Details of the production are sketchy, though we wonder whether the suspected fall out between O’Brien and Hoechlin some five years ago will be the main attraction for viewers ...

Other notes: The rating of this fic will hover somewhere around mature, though may possibly flirt with explicit. Also, as much as I would like this story finished in the next few weeks there's a good chance, knowing me, it won't be. So if you have time constraints and the like please don't hesitate to message anyway, it's all just for fun and I'd like to share it with others :) Thanks so much!

Beta Request

Title or Description: [Working Title] Late Night Skittles Texts

Genre: Romance, primairly fluff (with references to angst, but very very minor.)

Relationships/Characters: Scott McCall/Stiles Stilinsky (aka Sciles, aka Skittles)
Derek Hale and Melissa McCall have made minor appearences.

Length or word count: Short to medium

Type of beta you'd like: I need someone to check for OOCness. And I'm stuck on where this is going, so chatting about plot would be nice. I've also stopped watching TW around season 2 (school took over). So canon-checking would be a big bonus, but I'm pretty good at that myself, so it's not required.

Language (if other than English): Just English. (Passing references to Spanish, but not a problem)

Short summary, preview, or details: Stiles used to text Scott weird, stream-of-consiousness texts. He has since stopped, and looks like shit. Scott wants him to start again, so he starts to text Stiles.

Other Notes: No deadline, no rush.
