Desperetly seaking a Beta  
Hello everyone.  This is a request for a beta for a very specific fic. 

I have written a sequel to The Modern Man I Sing http://ladygray99.livejournal.com/2380.html

 It’s about 33,000 words all told.  It’s basically everything my Vignettes stories aren’t. 

 It’s dark and troubled and scary and I’ve got the boys together and happy by the end but they have a long road getting there.  Depressingly enough I think it may be some of the best stuff I’ve ever written. 

 However I really need a beta if for nothing else the spelling. 

 I’m more than willing to negotiate something for a good beta because I really want to get this posted.

 Any takers?

 Lady Gray

Sounds just wonderful! I loved The Modern Man I Sing and to get a sequel is just fantastic. Don't get me wrong your vignettes are marvelous also, but I need a bit of dark in my fic to really enjoy. :)
If I wasn't up to my neck in work at work I'd be glad to beta for you. A simple spellcheck I can perform, but a good beta is so much more that I can't in good consience offer right now. Which is a funny way to aswer your request :)
Looking so much forward to more of your beautiful writing.

Thanks for letting me know you like the Idea. :-) If you don't see it up in a month assume I haven't found anyone yet.

Did you get a beta sorted out? I really like the sound of this fic, I love the really dark and angsty stuff, so I hope it works out. I was tempted to offer my beta services, but unfortunately I know how little free time I have right now, and I wouldn't want to commit to something that big and then not have the time to give it a proper amount of attention. If you're still struggling to get a beta, if you could break it down in to smaller parts I might be able to beta it in stages for you.

Hope this is helpful.

Thanks dear. I managed to get a hold of a couple and should manage to get it up in January. It's kinda epic and kinda a mess. Thanks for offering.
