Hey everyone!

Posting time is fast approaching! I hope you’re all doing fantastically on your fics. Even if you’ve finished and looked over your story yourself, it’s a good idea have a beta reader give it a second look before posting. Sometimes it can be hard to find a beta, so that’s what this post is for!

If you need a beta or would like to offer your beta services, please leave a comment below. I’ve even included nice little text boxes you can use as a base for your request or offer! (Please ignore the <br /> tags in the boxes... I've not been able to figure out how to get rid of them on here.)

For writers:

For betas:

Feel free to contact a writer or beta with the information they've included and try to match up! The Livejournal post can be found here if you'd like to widen your scope or crosspost.

Anything else?: I'm behind schedule and don't have a draft ready for beta yet, but I expect the fic to run to 40k, maybe more.

Fandom: Person of Interest

Characters/Ships: Root/Shaw

Summary:In 2001, Harold advised on a project called Cascade, not knowing he was a Guide himself. Years later, he and John, a Sentinel on the run from Cascade, must help Shaw, who has just lost her own Guide when the Project turned on her. Complicating matters is Root, searching for Harold's Machine and interfering with their rescue of Shaw.

Anything else?: I'm looking for someone to read for canon sense, characterisation and consistency. It's a sentinel/guide AU. Honestly, someone to Ameripick would be awesome.

Summary: The GotG team decides to get married in order to officially be a family. During the engagement period they learn more about each other's back stories and improve their communication skills.
Anything else?: Mostly I'm looking for feedback on general readability, grammar, and internal consistency. Also looking for feedback on whether the characters seem "in-character." I've cherry-picked from comics cannon, but I am definitely not trying to make my story match any version of comics cannon. Content warning: there is discussion of suicide in this story.

Characters/Ships: hux/kylo ren

Summary: Armitage Hux always made the best of his annual physical/mental examination. It was almost a vacation every year. The thing he looked forward to the most every year was a visit to a local parlor. Every year, everything was always the same, and that's how he liked it. But this year, things did not go according to plan. (Classic identity porn, set in canon-verse sometime before TFA. Explicit.)

Anything else?: My fic is complete at around 9K and I've given it an initial run-through for grammar/spelling. I always miss things though, and I don't usually write pieces this long, so a continuity check is a good thing.

Story: Hooded In Red

Fandom: Sherlock

Characters: Molly Hooper and Sherlock Holmes

Ship: Mostly GEN


Sherlock Holmes is dead, but he isn't really. Molly Hooper is the only one of his old friends to still be in contact with him in hiding. The only link back to his old life, and now that link is in danger of being cut. A story based on the tale of Little Red Riding Hood written for the Let's Write Sherlock: Challenge 2 on Tumblr and AO3 And being completed for the 2017 WIP Big Bang on

Length: 18,000 words

The rough draft is finished, and I am doing a meaning and logic pass. I need another set of eyes to do a Missing word, Spelling and Grammar pass. Finishing this story has been like beating my head against a wall. I want it to do too many things. Set in the gap between season 2 and Season 3, it is meant to help explain Sherlock and Molly's relationship in Season 4 as well as Molly's choices in Season 3 (read Tom).

Thanks for the help
