    Cheers- although I'm very jealous that your exams finish tomorrow. Should have a first chapter at some point this weekend. Could you PM me your e-mail address and I'll e-mail it over when it's written? Thank you!

    Hey Minna,

    Like I said in the PM, it's definitely more than 2 chapters, but less than 10. Can you do it?

    Thanks!

    Story: The Count
    Category: Marauder-era
    Ships: Marlene McKinnon/Benjy Fenwick
    Rating and Warnings: Professor's; Sexual Situations, Violence, Strong Profanity, Character Death. I know you said you're hesitant about Professor's fics with Sexual Situations, but it isn't a prominent part of the story and the rating is really more for the Violence, plus the Professor's rating is not a strong Professor's…it could maybe barely pass for a 6th-7th years, maybe.
    Word Count: 6890
    One Shot or Chaptered: One-shot
    Expected Beta Time: How ever long you need . I'm really in no hurry to get this on the archives.
    What do you need to most help with? Believability. Consistency. And the odd grammar mistake I might make occasionally…
    Permanent Y/N: It's just a one-shot, so no.
    Summary:…is in the works, so I'll just give you a badly-worded synopsis.
    Marlene McKinnon is a Hit-Witch, and a very brilliant one at that. Her job is her job, and she takes pride in what she does.
    This is the story of how one kill will change everything.

    Thank you to Hokey for the beautiful banner. And thank you to everyone who nominated and judged --I'm so grateful to you <3.

    Ariana - I'd be glad to take on the story - although if part of the believability you want help with is the romance...you may want to ask someone else to have a look. I am very much unsure about that kind of thing.

    And in case anyone's wondering, I have answered Pooja in a PM, I'm not ignoring her. >.>

    So...list, I guess. Betas do that too, right?

    1) Alex's mystery (4-ish chapters)
    2) Alex's oneshot
    3) Ariana's oneshot

    I hope you're available! I posted this in the Beta Wanted forum, but no one is replying, so I figured I would ask a specific beta before it was too late.

    Title of your Story: untitled
    Genre: Marauder Era
    Pairings: Lily/James
    Rating and Warnings: none currently
    Word Count: currently 1203 and growing
    One Shot or Chaptered: One-shot
    Turnaround time: a week would be great, shorter would be amazing. however, take as long as you need.
    Permanent? : yes
    What is your story about? It's a simple premise that came out of an idea from a different story I was writing. It's a collection of letters between Sirius and Remus written over the course of their friendship. It's really scattered, there are some early Hogwarts, most are last couple days of Hogwarts and some are post-Hogwarts. It obviously will have hints of Lily/James and any other relationships I decide to create for Remus and Sirius (though currently they are single).

    This has been a project that I've been coming back to every now and then and adding on to, but I really want someone to read over it and possibly have someone to bounce some ideas off of. I have lots of little plot bunnies running around all about the trouble Remus and Sirius can get into, but my issue of course is how to address it in letter form. Especially since they're in school together. So, I need someone to tell me if what I'm thinking for a new letter is realistic, someone to nitpick and someone to really bounce ideas off of. If that sounds like something you're interested in, let me know. And just to be clear, they are only friends, it's not slash.

    Rachel - I could totally take this on for you. If you like I can even PM you my AIM screen-name along with my e-mail - I find it easier to bounce ideas off people over AIM. =) (It's something I do a lot of - lol).

    Story: (I'm awful at titles and I need two, argh!)
    Category: Dark, but they're drabbles for the July Monthly
    Ships: one-sided canon Snape for Lily
    Rating and Warnings: 1st-2nd, none
    Word Count: 300 each
    One Shot or Chaptered: drabbles
    Expected Beta Time: a few days at most, since they're drabbles
    What do you need to most help with? characterization, plot... does it answer the prompt
    Permanent Y/N: I never know how to answer this, but since I tend to work with a variety of betas on different projects, probably no?
    Summary: So the July Monthly is to take one subject and write about it from two different characters' opposing views. I'm writing about the sea using Sirius and Severus Snape. Sirius is in Azkaban, remembering a happy memory of the sea. Snape is um... being Snape? Being dark and broody and... I dunno. The Snape part is where I'm having more trouble I think.

    Thanks Minna. ^^
