Beta Requests

I'm posting this here since everyone on Tumblr seems to have figured it out on their own so I figured I would share.

I beta now. A hell of a lot more than I used to. So, some ground rules.

I am of the belief that there are various levels of betas: Level 1 being grammar/spelling/formatting. Level 2 being word choice, characterization, etc. Level 3 being tear this shit apart. I'm not so hot on Level 3 unless we're really good friends. Like I've betaed for you before and I feel comfortable enough to tell you 'this scene in no way works at all, take it out now'.


I will Level 1 beta (i.e., check spelling/grammar) for anyone (even if we're not flisters), in any fandom -- even if I don't know it, and crickets can attest that I've looked over her TVD fic before with no problems -- for any pairing, regardless of my feelings on it.

I will Level 2 beta for FLISTERS ONLY, any fandom that I am familiar with (check my userinfo), for any pairing within those fandoms, regardless of my feelings on it.

My email is You can contact me here via PM, on Tumblr via my ask, and on Twitter. My username is always slybrunette, wherever you go. You can also find me on gchat. I take .docx, .doc, and GoogleDocs. I use track changes but if that's not cool with you, we can work around it.

Finals week is coming up but after May 6th, I should be more or less available for the duration of the summer. I am more likely to get back to you in the afternoon/evening. I'm going to try for a 24 hour turnaround but if it's a 10,000+ word fic, that may take a while. This post will be stickied to the top of my journal, for future use.

Anyways, feel free to hit me up :)
