Any Beta Readers Around? (8)

(I don't know if this is the right board to post on?)

I'm looking around for a good beta reader, so if you know one or a place where I could find one, or are one: read on!

I'm writing some fictions that are Hetalia, yaoi, mostly of the romantic-comedy strand with some light drama. However, those aren't really important for what I'm looking for in a beta. I've already got some awesome friends who look after me in regards to grammar and spelling, but they're not into looking at plot, story devices, or character.

I'm looking for someone who could answer questions like 'was the suspense actually suspenseful?', 'is the dialog trite or contrived?', 'did you skip anything to get to "the good parts"?', 'does my story have an interesting climax, turn, and conclusion?'

Even if you can't help me specifically (for whatever reason, I won't take offense!) post a reply with what you would be cool betaing for and hopefully other people can get a helpful beta! C:

Well, what fandoms are you writing for? I'm a beta and I'd most likely be willing to help, but only if I am familiar with the fandom(s) your writing in.

Sorry, not familiar with any anime fandoms.

However, you can search for betas on You'll have much better luck finding one on there because you can search them specifically by that fandom.

I usually beta (and I'm familiar with Hetalia and xxxHolic), but at the moment I'm not accepting any requests, for the simple reason that it's crunch time at university and my wrists allow me little time to do much on the computer anyway.

Sorry I can't help at the moment!

I can beta. I don't really mind the type of story. I never really read a Hetalia but doesn't mean I can come to learn to like something elso.
