Use the comments of this post to offer your beta-ing services.

If you're offering, please specify at least:

  • which fandoms you can help with
  • the type of beta you can offer
  • anything you can't beta
  • how people can best contact you to ask for your help

If you're a creator needing help finding a beta, and there isn't anyone in the comments here offering what you need, please contact the mod in the first instance. Posting directly in the comments here asking for help may make it too obvious what your assignment is.

I will beta any content - though please let me know about potentially-disturbing content before I read the story. Microsoft Word or Google Docs preferred, but I can handle some other formats. If you just want light SPAG I will be faster, but for usual beta jobs I take at least 1 day per 1k. You are very welcome to contact me at

  • For any of the above fandoms, if you want somebody to beta your outline or double-check your ideas for canon compliance before you get to the actually-writing stage, I can do that; also of course regular betaing of a completed draft.
  • I can also check SPAG for any fandom, including those I'm unfamiliar with if you can't find anybody offering them. I use American spelling but am comfortable with British spelling. I love grammar. :-)
  • I can beta both fic and meta, and although I've never betaed art I would definitely be willing to take a crack at it.
  • I will not beta sex scenes or anything R-rated or above. I won't beta some PG-13 content; if your story has that rating please give me more info & I'll decide on a case-by-case basis. All in all I'm more of a gen writer so if the story is romance-centric I'm probably not your best bet.
  • I prefer Google Docs, but other options may be possible if that doesn't work for you.
  • My email is lirin.lirilla at gmail.

Type of Beta:
SPaG, continuity, canon compliancy, flow, tone
I'm also available for brainstorming, and/or revising outlines.
My weakness is commas, as in: I like to put in more than entirely necessary.
Other Things:
For stories over 5k I'm going to need a few days, and if you don't get an answer to your request within 24hours, I didn't get your email. While I can beta explicit stuff, I would like to be warned beforehand for things like extreme violence, psychological terror, suicide.
My AO3 name is Prinzenhasserin and you can contact me at
