Re: Beta Readers

Thanks nakahara

I'm hoping we won't need it though... I've heard from my missing author now, she just needs more time. Phew!

Re: Beta Readers

So I realize that the last post in this thread was like six months ago, but are any of these offers still available? I'm hoping to find someone who would like to stick with me for a long-term fanfiction (it's only one chapter right now, but I'd expect at least twenty more. It's going to be epic.

But I understand that's a lot to ask. (Beggars can't be choosers!) I'm also totally willing to look at anyone else's fanfiction if they'd like!

Re: Beta Readers

Currently writing a story for Holmestice over at LJ. Would anyone of you kind people be willing to help and discuss some ideas and tell me whether these will work or definitely not at all?

Many thanks in advance.

Re: Beta Readers

I am not sure what Holmestic is, is that like domestic Holmes? I'd be willing to bounce idea and opinions back and forth with you! I've watched the series multiple times and have a hot firey passion for anything that involves it. PM me if you're interested.

Re: Beta Readers

Hi everyone, I'm back from my trip and I'd be happy to help with beta reading and fanfic ideas, send me a PM 

TakeMyHand, as far as I know Holmestice is a fanwork exchange, I've never participated so I'm not 100% sure, but you can maybe read more about it here

Re: Beta Readers

I can vouch for Ukaunz being one hell of a beta reader!

I'm also happy to help out! I'll read most things, I'm not squicky (Holmecest is a personal favourite). Johnlock preferred. Story, casefic or porn is all fine. If you drop me a mail over at AO3 that's the quickest way to get in touch with me until emails are swapped.

Re: Beta Readers


I need help with this year's Secret Santa Fic Exchange. Our lovely fill-in writer needs a beta reader for the fic. I am told that it will not be long.

Who can help?

Please send me your mail adress via pm so I can give it to her.

I still believe that love conquers all!

Re: Beta Readers


After reading what seems like a million words of fanfic during the last few months, I've started to write my own. It's a long form (probably +100K words) AU fiction where Sherlock and John are rock climbers. Sherlock is a lonely climbing genius and John is psychologically blocked after a climbing accident. They meet in the beautiful island of Kalymnos and, of course... they click.

It will eventually be Johnlock, of course, with tons of fluffy goodness and of course some consenting sex.

The main problem is I'm not a native English so I would need someone to correct my spelling, grammar and vocabulary mistakes. My English is (I think) pretty decent and I'll do my best to correct as many mistakes as possible beforehand, but I'm sure I will still have a few.

I have a pretty clear idea about where the fic is going in terms of plot and character development, so I wouldn't need a lot of help with that (although of course all feedback is welcome). 

I wasn't very keen on AUs, but after reading The Bang and the Clatter and Performance in a Leading Role I realised the possibilities it has and started to itch to write this. I've been a climber for a while already and it has a ton of interesting possibilities for John and Sherlock, and hopefully you'll enjoy the scenery and learn more about the beauty of the sport.

So if someone is up for the challenge, I'd be extremely grateful. I am fairly new to this and still don't know how it works so I'd appreciate some guidance along the process. 

I have 6k words already

Thanks in advance
