I, too, am willing to proofread anything anyone needs. I'm more of a grammar/spelling/word choice person than a historical facts genius, so probably if you're looking for help with that sort of details, you'd be better off with the people above me.

I'm looking for an English native speaker who would be so kind to do a proofreading of a short (ca. 2100 words) fic. Pairing: Marius/Cosette/Courfeyrac, rating: PG-13/light R. Basically, the fic was written in Polish, translated into English and we (my translator and me) want to make sure if the grammar is correct, the choice of words is right and so on. You know, typical problems of a person who is not a native speaker...

Thanks in advance!

EDIT: Out-of-date, thanks to Marguerite. :-)

My usual beta is out of the country on business and I don't want to bother her, so I'm looking for someone who can fill in for a couple of chapters.

I have a terrible time spotting errors in my own stuff, so mostly I just need another pair of eyes. But any comments as to plot and flow and characterization are appreciated. If anyone's familiar with my long fic, Pyrexia, that would be a bonus. Thanks!

Would anybody be interested in betaing a oneshot for me? It's about ten pages long. I would ask one of my fanficiton obsessed friends, but none of them have read Les Mis. If anybody will read it I will be forever grateful!

Roses for Ophelia, there is a slight problem sending the fanfiction. There's a character limit on PMs on ff.net, and it's well over the limit. I'm not sure if there's a way to attach a file or not. I'm not very good with technology.

I'd be willing to beta for things such as plotholes, out-of-character-ness, and moods and such. Seeing as those our my strengths.
On the total other note, if anyone wants to do some grammar, spelling ect. on my stories, it would be much appreciated.
Can you PM me if you are interested in either ideas?

Would one of you mind beta reading/ proofreading a chapter for me?

Did you find a beta reader? If not, I'd give it a shot.
