Additional Comments: I can read almost any kind of story (except listed above). My strength is remembering stuff from the show off the top of my head (good with little details). I enjoy beta-ing for characterization because I feel it's really important. Also, I am big on grammar, spelling and punctuation. I prefer not to read stories that are just two characters engaging in sex (please give me somewhat of a story).

Additional Comments: I will beta and help with pretty much anything. But the story must be clearly labled and such. I am not the greatest speller in the world. But am great with coming up with ideas a good listener and easy to talk to. I like all SV fandoms. My personal favorites are stories about Lionel, Chloe, and Clark/Lex. I don't mind Mary Sues or AU fics, either. So please feel free to send away.

Additional Comments: I've worked on a few stories from other universes, and have beta'd 2 slash stories for Smallville. I'm most interested in slash stories, but I will read het. I'm especially interested in reading stories about Pete or the Kents. I'll read Lana, but you'll have to work hard to make me like her.

Additional Comments: I will read anything. I am a major fic whore. I tend to prefer slash, most especially Clark/Lex (of course), but I like being challenged. I can be a nitpicky beta, and I check closely for grammar and spelling, as well as coherency. But I love a good fic. Send away.

Additional Comments: I am happy to beta read any and all Smallville fanfiction. Please send me any writing you would like beta read. I have a very good grasp on the characters of Chloe, Lana, Clark, and Lex. I also prefer to help on Clark/Chloe, Lex/Chloe, and Lex/original character. I don't mind reading other stories, but these are my favorites to work on. I cannot guarantee that I'm always 100% perfect at it or that I am able to catch all mistakes, but I work hard and I can get most work done within a day or so. Thank you!

Additional Comments: I will beta pretty much anything; gen, het, slash. I tend to be thorough and picky and pick up most grammar issues. Let me know what type of turn around you are looking for. Usually I aim for 24-48 hours, but sometimes am not able to quite meet that depending on my own workload at the time. I have specialized knowledge in the areas of ecology and anthropology (if either are ever needed in Smallville fic) so feel free to pick my brain about either.

Additional Comments: I like and will beta-read any kind of story, as I like reading anything and everything :) I do prefer characterisation and plot driven fics to style and mood pieces, but it wonít stop me reading and offering help where itís wanted. As itís your story, I don't expect you to change anything just because I suggested it, but I always try to be constructive. I will be able to get back to you reasonably quickly, but let me know the timeframe involved. Just for your information, I professionally edit an architecture journal, hence the speciality in science/maths and sociology, and I've already said I read anything and everything, so hence Literature. I'm particularly very good at finding appropriate quotes, if that's any help. Lastly, I love the character Lex, so if your story involves any serious warping in his characterisation, prepared to be negotiated with!

I'm also pretty prompt about getting back to people, so I hope that I can help!

I am really excellent with the Lana, Lex and Clark characters. Big angst-fan, and also an expert at the paranormal/science-y stuff.

Additional Comments: I have seen every single episode of Smallville at least twice, so I think I have a pretty good idea of the Smallville universe. I have read tons and tons of Smallville fanfic, and I recently beta read someone's Dark Angel fic for them. Sure, I know that it's not Smallville, but it's still beta reading. My mother is a teacher and I have worked on both my school yearbook as the head copy editor and on my school's newspaper as well.

Additional Comments: I like unconventional couples a lot. But I like the conventional couples too. Except for Whitney, he can be in the fic, but don't make him the main character, cause I don't like him much. As for the type of crit., it depend on what I think the fic needs. I'm not gonna start a line by line criticism if all the story needs is a spelling correction or two and I'm not gonna tell you the general content doesn't flow right if I think specific lines could be changed to make it sound better.

Additional Comments: If you are working at a deadline I might not be the best person to ask. Most of my attention is paid to plotting and flow of the work, though I tend to pick up most of the spelling and some grammar problems. I prefer nothing to do with incest or rape pieces. My favorite character is Lex at his most manipulative and I am a believer in Clark/Lex "one true pairing". Other variations on the theme would have to be believable. I prefer future and AU fiction, the further AU the better. If I can help with any info on accounting, Russian or SF/Fantasy literature I'd be glad to attempt an answer.

Additional Comments: I am open to read ANY SV fics. I don't mind slash of either f/f or m/m types. I am best with Chloe, and am pretty good with Pete, and Lex also. I don't really do Clana...if you want me to beta one, you'll have to really work to make me like it! If your fic plays up Pete as the 'token black guy' (in other words make him say things like 'Yo homey,' or 'What's up dawg') I will not read it. If it's a parody then I have no problem with it, but you need to tell me it's a parody! I usually get back to you the day you send the fic, unless it's ridiculously long. I'm very thorough and good with grammar and characterisation. I give back constructive criticism and do not believe in flaming anyone for any reason. :)

Additional Comments: I'm not into incest or pedophilia. A 15-16 year old teen with a 21 or older adult is not me definition of a pedophile. I may find other restraints later. I do like Slash and Lex Clark and Chloe together. There are a lot of good stories out there that could be great with a little spell check and put a comma here. I'm not creative, but I can be anal about spelling and punctuation. I'd be great for those who are very creative and want to stay focused on those creative juices. Let me cross your t's and dot your i's.

Additional Comments: Don't ask me if it fits with canon because I have only minimal viewing experience of the show. I have, however, seen enough to get an idea of who the characters are, their manners of speech and how they interact with each other. In regards to grammar and spelling I am a stickler because it really bugs me when it's bad. I have been working with literature for five years and have a good sense of language so I think I can make your work. I will do my best to make the stories I receive the best they can be and I will be brutally honest, but hopefully to productive results.

Additional Comments: Hey I will read anything, I am true to my word and I have beta read for a while now. I try to spend a lot of time on each one so I can get an idea of the story. I always stand behind my word so if I tell you its good... then its good. I am also very good in psychology and the human psyche. Keep them coming!

Additional Comments: Reading is a great passion of mine. I love the art of language. I, myself, am not a writer. I am perfectly happy just admiring them. :) I love writers because they feed my addiction, and I would be pleased and honored to help and support them. Although I have no 'official' training as a writer or an editor, I am quite good at grammar, and I have some skill with plot and narration. I'm also a HUGE fan of Smallville, and have seen all episodes at least once (and read most of the slash fiction). I am dedicated, and have lots of time to devote to anyone needing sincere critique. I have never done any beta-ing before, but am eager to learn.

Additional Comments: I'm a computer programmer with a passion for good books and stories. I've written letters to many published authors with compliment and critique and many publishers with unfound spelling/grammar mistakes. I love stories of all kinds. I'm a fan of anyone with the patience to write a story. I've read everything from "Harry Potter" to "Atlas Shrugged" to "In Cold Blood". I'd love to assist anyone who feels they'd like help.

Additional Comments: I am a nitpicky spelling/grammar beta, but I can also offer spontaneous impressions of the story as a food item. Please specify your preferred level of harshness--my tactful betas take more time (I have to edit my comments), but if you want me to just be out with it, I can usually get the story back within a few hours--but regardless of your preferred level of harshness, I will always be honest. I usually get tactfully beta'ed stories back in 24 hours or less. I also have a high tolerance for squickiness and deathfic, and no patience with domesticfic.

Additional Comments: I have years of experience reading and editing stories, poems, letter, etc. for my writer friends. I'm not a bad writer myself, but like being a critic better. Warning! I can be thorough to a fault. (not harsh, just thorough)

Additional Comments: I am fond of Lionel, Martha, Jonathan, Lex, Chloe, and Clark. I will beta ChLana and any other parings.I have knowledge of the mid to late 18th century.I to write my own Smallville fan fiction and now work part time. So I will take the time that I have to beta. I don't really prefer comedy or out of this world types of fics. I like A/U's but in character is kind of important. I am not great at spelling and grammar.
