NOTE : If a reviewer beta-reads a fan fiction, that reviewer cannot review that fan fiction if it ever gets submitted.
NOTE : If you are looking for a beta-reader for your fan fiction, you can simply e-mail the Beta-Readers Email List (firstname.lastname@example.org), and it will be sent to 50+ beta-readers, who can contact you about the possibility of doing a beta-reading (if they are interested in doing it). One does not have to be registered or subscribed to the mailing list in order to send mail to it.
The beta reader mailing list is for requests only. DO NOT use it to distribute your story.
Anything thats too mushy. And anything that is too typical.
I like stories that are well rounded, a touch of romance, and lots of action! I respond very quickly, so if you need some one to get back with you fast, thats me! Ummm, I really like Ani/Padme stuff, and Qui Gon too. But don't send me stuff thats the NJO, I'm familiar with that area of the Galaxy.

I'm pretty open minded. Just don't ask me to read anything on Jabba's eating habits. That's where I draw the line.
I found this site 3 months ago and was instantly hooked. I found Obi-wan in AOTC and...Well, let's just say he is my favorite jedi. Nonetheless, I don't object to any other characters. I DO have to admit I am NOT an Anakin lover. The written word is one of my passions and I enjoy variety so here I am!
I really don't care for torture stories, though I did manage to wade through a number while doing the archive on DMEB. Since this is a PG-13, I don't think there will be too much I can't stomach.
I'm first and foremost a romance writer (not always with a happy ending, but definitely with starry eyes as often as possible). I'm a member of Romance Writers of America, have taken numerous writing courses, have been a SW fiend since being dragged to it in 1977 (ANH which was then known only as Star Wars), and love science fiction and fantasy.

I will suggest alternatives, list things that I don't like or unsure of, make general observations on how much sense things make.
Let me know how brutal you want me to be, otherwise I have a habit of tearing them to shreds.
Anything with real-life cursing, I refuse to Beta-read. Star Wars cursing is acceptable, as I find it very humorous (Sithspit, etc.). Also I try not to Beta-read anything from right before the Yuzhong-vong War through just before the Legacy of the Force series.
I try writing Fan Fics as much as I can, but I've not yet posted any of my work; That will change soon.
I can read a 110 page Fan Fic, in 10-point/Times New Roman Font, in less than a day. after which it would take a day or two to edit/comment on, but this would only be done If I'm EXTREMELY interested in the read, otherwise it could take nearly a week for me to finish and edit a fan fic at that length. So expect it to be somewhat quick and definately thorough.
