Hey guys, I'm finally nearing the finish line with my merlin_holidays fic, so I'm looking for a beta who can help me with editing etc. once I'm done with the final couple of scenes. As it's anon I can't give you all the details, but here's a brief overview:

Genre: Modern AU, PG-13
Pairing, or characters: Merlin/Arthur
Type of beta you'd like: SPaG, characterisation and dialogue, someone to check the worldbuilding is consistent and help me fix any plotholes etc.
Length, or word count: Currently at ~6k, should end up somewhere around 7.5k once I'm done.

I'm running a bit past my deadline so it will need to be done ASAP. If you can help, please comment here or send me a PM with your email address. Thanks in advance!

Title: Promises That Were Never Made
Genre: Canon AU, angst, drama
Pairing, or characters: Merlin/Arthur Pendragon
Type of beta you'd like: Since this work is a translation, I just need an SPaG beta.
Length, or word count: ~18K

Short Summary:
His feet were moving before he realized what he was doing. He walked out from behind Arthur’s throne and around the table to stand in front of the whole Court. His hands were shaking when he looked at his King. Arthur looked shocked, and while this gave him a bit of satisfaction, it didn’t at all help to lessen his nervousness.

“I’m Emrys,” he said loudly, trying to get himself under control.

“Stop trying to be funny, Merlin,” Arthur snorted. “Go back to where your place is,” he added.

“The Druids call me Emrys. It’s me you’re looking for,” he repeated stubbornly, but he knew that Arthur would need something more convincing than his words to believe him.

He stretched out his hand, wondering what to create to prove the truth of his words, but a ball of fire was enough for an expression of pure horror to appear on Arthur’s face.

Looking for a beta to give my winterknights ficlet a once-over; can't tell you the title or summary since it's meant to be anonymous, but here are the details I can give you:

Genre: Historical AU
Pairing, or characters: Gen (with faint Gwaine/Percival if you squint), Arthur's POV (3rd person limited)
Type of beta you'd like: Just general SPAG, characterisation, commentary, etc. I'd love to have someone to bounce ideas off, too -- technically it's fine as a one-shot, but I feel like there's more to the story, I just haven't figured out what it is yet.
Length, or word count: <1000 words currently.
