I need a beta. I have one - sometimes - but she's just so busy that I hate to bog her down with this stuff.

I'm working on a story now that I'm really excited about, so while I have no problems giving it some love, I need someone to give it some more refined loving.

I would prefer someone who could be with me for the long-haul, but I understand that most of my flist is made up of writers that are incredibly busy themselves.

I'm basically looking for any help that I can get be it SPAG and/or Brit-Picking. (As well as personal opinion to plot holes, character design, dialogue, and anything that seems generally off.) 

If you aren't familiar with my style of writing, you can find it here: example.

Pairing: H/D (Of course)
Premise: Slytherin!Harry - No Voldemort relation, no overt character bashing, no evil!Dumbledore.
Genre: AU
Word Count: Prologue: 6.4k

(Admittedly, this story is NOT any of my fest or auction fics. ...shiddlesticks.)

I like brit-picking and the S bit of SPAG. And plot-holes, characterisation etc. So if you don't get a better offer *waves hand*

Even if you just need some brit-picking.

You know what you should request if you win my auction? (Which you will.)

You should request Slytherin!Harry! >> << >> << :D!

XDD No, I'm kidding. Don't listen to me, that's bad. Then you'd be looking over your own fic thing.

Well, I wouldn't mind mooooore than one person looking over it. But I don't want to abuse people. @-@ And I'd want the SPAG portion beta'd before I sent it to you for brit-picking and thoughts. XD

I'm not horrendous at the PAG, but as the teacher used to say 'could try harder'! Bizarrely much better at it with other people's work than my own. I can write sentences longer than whole novels.

If I win, I am going to throw you right ot of your comfort zone! Muhahaha.

I would love to offer... but i have my own epic fic to write and i've already agreed to beta, er, at least four smoochfest fics (possibly more, i think i lost count...)

XDD No worries.

When I finished this prologue I was floored to realize it was 6.4k. I was like, "Wait a minute. Can a prologue be that long?!" XD

Now it means that my chapters have to be longer than that or they'll look like rejects.

I would if I were ever beta material. Alas, I am not. (I offer tea instead.)

Heya sweetie. I'm no beta (as you know, since I think I have looked over one of your other fics...maybe), but if you're desperate, I'd be happy to look through it. I am insanely busy, though, so if you do want me to help, it would be good if you could give me a little leeway on the time :)

Still, I'm probably not the best choice, since I can pretty much only do SPAG.

-Squishes- I know how busy you are, hun. I appreciate the fact that you would try to spend some of what little free time you have helping me, but it's isn't necessary. <3

I'm beyond flattered though. :)

Yep, not sure how we'll work out together, but I had an offer, so that's a start. :)
