So for anyone who doesn't know what a beta reader is, they're basically the fanfiction equivalent of an editor: someone you send your fics off to before you post them to get feedback, corrections, etc. Beta-reading doesn't seem to be terribly widespread in the LM fandom, but I thought if any of us needed a beta we could post here with requests (or offers of service).
I myself am willing to beta for pretty much any type of fic; I'm primarily a mechanics- and facts-checking sort, which means spelling, grammar, French, nitpicky historical details, nitpicky canon details, etc. And I can make suggestions on plot holes, characterization, plausibility, etc. Unfortunately, I'm terrible at weeding out awkward word choice, suggesting alternate phrasings, and other stylistic concerns.
I don't need a beta right this instant, but in the future I might like someone to bounce my stories off before I post them. I probably won't need any grammar help; I'm more worried about word choice and evenness of tone, pace, and mood.
