    Welcome to the Well of Lost Plot's Beta Request Thread v1.0!

    Looking for a Beta for your Non Star Wars fic? Look no further!

    The Beta Request Thread is here if you are soliciting yourself as an available Beta or if you are seeking one for your fic.

    Until we find a <s>sucker</s> volunteer to run a more organized/fancier beta index, we ask that you use this thread rather than clog up WOLP with individual requests.

    If you find a beta who has listed their services here, please look over the posted lists and contact a Beta Reader.

    If you would like to volunteer your services or request a beta, please fill out the following and post them here.

    I actually have two stories that need beta'ing:

    Fandom: Harry Potter
    Timeframe: Several years after "Deathly Hallows"
    Length: multi-post, though I've only started the prologue.
    Genre: multi-genre, but mostly humor
    Characters: Harry, Ginny, Dudley OC's, more
    Summary: Dudley and his muggle wife give birth to a wizard! :eek:

    [b]Fandom:[/b] Harry Potter crossover w/ SW
    [b]Timeframe:[/b] A few months after DH/ hours after Qui-gon is killed in TPM
    [b]Length:[/b] multi-post, but only started first post
    [b]Genre:[/b] Crossover, romance, drama, AU
    [b]Characters:[/b] Minerva McGonagall and Count Dooku
    [b]Summary:[/b] A malfunctioning portkey brings Minerva to the GFFA where she meets a distinguished and disillusioned Jedi Master
    [b]Notes: [/b] I know this forum is for non SW stories, but I need someone who knows the HP universe well. I will be posting this one in the Saga forum of the SWFF. Someone who knows Dooku well would also be nice, though I'm gonna have this be rather AU'ish. >
