I so want you to be my beta. ♥
After I saw you're fic, Dog's Eye View, I got interested in your writing skills because it's far way better than mine. I admire people who writes with parentheses because I don't write like that. Unfortunately, the current idea stuck in my head is a Tegomass Mpreg but you don't beta things like that. And maybe you can help me on other ideas (like Ryomassu because I don't know how to characterize them together) that I'm just too confused to write, I've been failing lately. Hmm, what more to say. Ah, I wish I can work with you! Thanks!

Hi there! I'd be glad to help you. I'd rather not beta mpreg, but we can discuss your other fic ideas. Give me a PM and we can work things out. :)

Hello! I'm sorry to say that you actually reminded me to edit my entry in this community. >.< The thing is, I've become less attached to Ryo and Yamapi since they left NEWS, so now I prefer to beta 4-nin fics. That said, though, if you're having trouble finding a beta, I'd be willing to look over your fic in terms of grammar/spelling and plot, but maybe not for characterization. Would that be okay with you?

uhh... well... tbh im not even sure what all of that means... sorry new writer here.
i do know what grammer/spelling is, but as for plot, is that you helping me with the plot? and i dont have a clue what characterization is (sorry for being so troublesome)

Beta-ing for plot means checking whether the story line makes sense and making sure nothing goes unexplained. Like, sometimes a beta would remind the writer if the development of the story is too fast (two characters just met but then they're suddenly very close to each other without much detail, etc) or too slow.

As for characterization, it's making sure that the people are "in character", so to speak? Some people don't like OOC (out of character), like maybe Ryo suddenly acting like Tegoshi or something.

Welcome to JE_Beta.

This community was found by shardaunei after her search for a beta reader specific for the Johnny's Entertainment fandom. She found hers after much search, and she wondered how many other writers out there might be looking for one but don't know where.

Now, look no more, because we're here for that exact purpose! Either you're a fanfic writer or you like to read fanfic and wonder for ways to make writers write better, this is the place for you!

Of course, we need to set some ground rules to keep things rolling around here... So here you go!

Rule number one! No posting of fics here. This is for finding beta readers only.

Rule number two! Please use the posting form located at this post.

Rule number three! Let's have fun and please respect each other! :D

In case you feel like you want to give us suggestions, we'll gladly accept those! Please leave a comment at this post for suggestions! :D

For more info, kindly check the community's profile. :D
