Looking for a beta? Willing to offer your betaing services? This is the place to sign up. Just leave a comment listing the pairings/genres you're willing to beta so people can connect with you. Or, if you're looking for a beta, comment with your pairing/genre so people know what you're after.
I'll keep a running list in this post as people sign up. So far this is what I've got:Betas needed:katydidmischief
needs a beta for her Speed/Delko Miami fic. NC17.missparker
needs a beta for a Grissom/Catherine with a small side of Grissom/Sara fic.demon_faith
needs a beta for an angsty Nick/Greg piece.Betas offered:carolinecrane
(that's me) is willing to beta Miami het, or on the CSI side, Nick/Greg, Cath/Sara, Cath/Warrick. I can also beta gen in both fandoms. I'll beta Gil het as well, but I'm never sure I've got much of a handle on Gil's voice, so if you can find someone more confident you're probably better off. smut_queen
will beta Grissom/Sara, Catherine/Warrick, or Catherine/Saranekosmuse
will beta Catherine/Warrick, Grissom/Sara, Catherine/Sara, or Nick/Greg. See warnings on her beta style in comments section.thepurpleswitch
will beta Vegas gen, Cath/anybody, Gil/Nick, Warrick het, and Greg/anybodycarleton97
will beta Nick/Greg, Cath/Sara, Cath het, Gil het, Warrick het, any Miami het, and gen in both fandoms, or ask to see if she'll take on a specific pairing that's not listed here.oh_mumble
will beta...well, I'm just going to quote her: "I'm happy to beta any gen fic for Vegas or Miami, and any non-explicit slash pairing, provided you can make a case for it. Like, you need to really convince me if it's a Horatio/Speed fic, but try me! I'll also look over any non-explicit Cath/Warrick or Calleigh/Delko."kerlin
will beta any Vegas gen, Griss/Sara, Nick/Sara, and Cath/Sarasophiap
says: "I'm willing to beta Vegas fic at any point in the writing process, including being a sounding board to help you work through any thorny plot problems you may encounter during the outlining/drafting phase."alethialia
will beta any and all Miami genfic and hetfic, except for Speed pairings.demon_faith
will beta any Vegas with Nick/Greg or Gil/Cath, as long as it isn't above a PG-13 rating.
And...that's it for now. But if you're up for betaing or need a beta, this is the place to sign up. And if you haven't signed up for the challenge yet, you've got 23 days left to take the plunge. Come on, you know you want to.ETA:
I probably don't need to say this, but I am not one of those chicks who insists that all fics must be betaed and praise lavished upon betas in your author's notes in order for the fic to be accepted in the archive. If you've ever read any of my stuff you know that I very, very rarely use a beta myself, so this is a completely optional portion of the challenge. I just thought it would be nice to centralize resources for first-timers in the fandom who may need a little extra help. Also, thanks to everyone who's offered to beta. Y'all rock.
