SGA BETA


This is a community for potential Stargate Atlantis fanfic Beta Readers to get in touch with fanfic authors in need and for authors to find beta-readers for their stories.


A list of all registered Beta Readers has been added: Alphabetically and By type of fanfic they beta.



A list of all registered Beta Artists has been added: Alphabetically and By type of Art they beta.



Please update your beta status reguarly by leaving a message on this post.



To try to make the right match between the beta-reader and the author,

Beta-readers should make a post to the community specifying:
Category of the fics you'd beta: (Action/ Humor/ Drama/ Team/ Crossover/ Fluff/ Slash/ Gen/ Het/ Threesome/ Mpreg/ Deathfic/ PWP/ Smut/ BDSM/ Non-con/ Any…)
Category of the fics you won't beta: (Action/ Humor/ Drama/ Team/ Crossover/ Fluff/ Slash/ Gen/ Het/ Threesome/ Mpreg/ Deathfic/ PWP/ Smut/ BDSM/ Non-con/ none…)
Pairing of the fics you'd beta (if applicable): (Elizabeth-John/ Carson-Rodney... the possibilities are infinite)
Pairing of the fics you won't beta (if applicable): (Elizabeth-John/ Carson-Rodney... the possibilities are infinite)
If not pairing oriented, character fics you'd beta: (John, Elizabeth, Rodney, Hermiod, all...)
If not pairing oriented, character fics you won't beta: (John, Elizabeth, Rodney, Hermiod, none...)
Type of beta you'd do: (grammar/ spelling/ plot…)
Length of the fics you'd beta: (Drabble/ Stand-alone/ Multi-chapter/ Novel-length…)

Example:
Lj_user Jane_Doe999 will post a comment as follows:
Category of the fics you'd beta: Action/ Humor/ PWP/ Slash
Category of the fics you won't beta: Het/ Threesome/ Mpreg
Pairing of the fics you'd beta(if applicable): John-Rodney, Hermioid-Caldwell
Pairing of the fics you won't beta(if applicable): Carson-Rodney
If not pairing oriented, character fics you'd beta: John, Elizabeth, Carson
If not pairing oriented, character fics you won't beta: Bates, Lorne
Type of beta you'd do: grammar/ spelling
Length of the fics you'd beta: Drabble/ Stand-alone


Note that she specified she’d beta Action, Humor and PWP, but she’s not adverse to Crossover, so she’ll probably agree to beta a Crossover that is humorous and has some PWP.
Also note that because she specified she wouldn’t write Het, there is no need to write down all the het-pairings she would not beta.
Because she agreed to beta for grammar and spelling but not for plot, if you want help keeping your plot-twist straight, you might want to consider an additional plot-beta, or another beta-reader altogether.


People who would like a person to beta-read, should ask politely in the comment section if the beta-reader is available, specifying:
Title of the fic: (Once upon a time/The Sledge…)
Category of your fic: (Action/ Humor/ Drama/ Team/ Crossover/ Fluff/ Slash/ Gen/ Het/ Threesome/ Mpreg/ Deathfic/ Non-con…)
Pairing (if applicable): (Elizabeth-John/Carson-Rodney... the possibilities are infinite)
Secondary pairings: (Elizabeth-John/ Carson-Rodney... the possibilities are infinite)
If not pairing oriented, main character or characters: (John, Elizabeth, Carson…)
Type of beta you'd like: (grammar/ spelling/ plot…)
Length: (Drabble/ Stand-alone/ Multi-chapter/ Novel-length… also include number of words)
Short Summary: (…)

Be truthful, this is your beta, you don’t want to surprise/trick him or her into reading something she didn’t sign up for. If you’re not sure about something, or haven’t decided yet because it’s still a WIP, say so.

Example:
Lj_user Mary_Sue456 posts a comment to Jane_Doe999’s post:
Hi, I wrote a fanfic recently and would like you to be my beta-reader.
My fic is called “Blanket Scenario”
It is humor and slash and features Rodney and John in a very cold planet with only one blanket. It is a stand-alone fic of 2500 words. It has no secondary pairings (or characters).
I’d like a grammar/spelling beta please


Note that

beta-readers can say no to any request.

Don’t be offended, people may not have enough time because they’re swamped with projects, or your fic is just not their cup of coffee.

Also

don’t post your entire fic to the community.

After you have found your beta-reader agree on a way to give him or her your fic (e-mail/lj_post/msn…).

We'll use tags so finding a beta becomes easier.
For the moment we're only using category-tags. So the Tags for Jane_Doe999's comment should read: "Action, Humor, PWP, Slash".
We only use positive tags, meaning there are tags for “slash” and “PWP” but not “not-Slash” and “not-PWP”.
This will make it easier for a writer looking for a beta for his specific type of fic to find the beta he's looking for.



We're now accepting Beta Artists as well!


The same rules as above apply, just substitute "art" for "fic". We currently have two categories for Beta Artists: manips and graphics and traditional art.

Please be sure to point out the rating of the pieces you're willing to Art!Beta as well as the piece you're requesting an Art!Beta for.

An example of an Art!Beta post can be found here.
