If you wish to have a story beta read by someone, fill out this form and post a reply. Be generous with details (but don't give away everything, for the reader's sake).

If you wish to beta someone's story, I suggest you click on their profile, scroll down to their stories, pick the latest one and read at least a little to get a feel what they're writing is like. Sometimes you really admire someone's writing (but you just don't know it yet) and when you get the story in your inbox you're only able to pick out a few things. Sure, the writer appreciates your help, but if you think that you can't offer enough help to someone, don't feel pressured to beta read for him.

If you decide you do want to beta read the story, post a reply.

Whenever you get a beta reader for your story, please put "FOUND" at the top of your post.

Tut tut :P I'm not allowed to watch TaHM, stupid parents u__u

9/26/2011 #13

O: Sorry! Me and Dad watched it.

Although, I'm ninety percent sure he wasn't hoping for shirtless men...

Lmfao, I walked downstairs the other night and I saw my dad watching the TV. He was watching a sex scene. I don't know if he accidentally flicked onto it, but I'm pretty sure it was on the TV. It was extremely awkward for the next few minutes...

9/26/2011 #15

Oh my gosh!

Lmao, Ikr

Did you get it? I accidentally sent it to Drag, she's the only other person on my DocX list and my trackpad went Crazzyyy

I need a Beta. Fast. Like, now! D: It's for a contest! D:

So, if someone could...please!?

/grins evilly

You mentioned needing a beta to finish before XX time? I thought Scarheart extended the date?

9/30/2011 #19
R.L. Sisters

Did she/he? O.o

9/30/2011 #20

You can ask. ...Wait, nowyou'rewavering on the he/she? D: I kept assuming 'he' because you... you... /pawface

He/She sent a PM to everyone who signed up, reminding that the deadline is in like, 2 days. Said that if enough people request, he/she could extend the deadline. Apparently, enough did - so the deadline is in October 9th.

I'm 90% sure that I can finish it before the 2nd, so I can publish it tomorrow, but... yeah. A week would help. O.O

Edit: Here, Scarheart's profile.

6/5th One-shot

Charries: Mains; Sandpaw - Me & Russetpaw - Mike (A friend in America.)

Plot: No plot basically, just a nice little happy story with lots of sarcasm and verbal jousts.

Anyone feel up to reading my horrible writing? :]

R.L. Sisters

...Did anyone ever accept my request? O.o

10/1/2011 #25

You can ask around here for a beta, Owl. The way I got mine was... I just asked for one in the first chapter and someone berry helpfully offered to beta xD.

Edit: Don't think so R. SOMEONE BETA FOR R.

(I don't think it's too apropos (lawl) for me to beta. Really.)

R.L. Sisters

I guess I can do it myself, since it looks pretty bleak at the moment....

10/1/2011 #27

Amber and Coqui offereed to beta some of those Fayy, but I can do it if you want.

And R, I'd offer, but I think it would be weird to beta my beta...

10/1/2011 #28
R.L. Sisters

...Yeah...It would. xD

Thanks... I mean, how do you get a beta account?
