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.
I'll read pretty much anything, but I have not kept up with the more recent books, thus I'll have a hard time handling anything that is NJO, Rogue or Wraith-Squadron related. I'm more a fan of original characters and pre-ANH Tatooine stories, but I'm willing to give anything a shot. I am also a Junior in college, so my writing style and grammar are pretty decent if I do say so m'self ;)
I'm looking forward to beta-ing your story, so send it along! Especially if it has Imperials in it [I'll mourn ya till I join ya, bros ;)]

I probably wouldn't like to beta read anything that doesn't deal with Han and/or Leia.
I work in TV and have been a SW fan since I was 10 years old. :) I beta-read for a few people right now, so I'd probably be only able to beta-read one fic at a time from this archive. I'm also a fanfic reviewer for the archive as well. My main strength and interests in fanfiction and beta-reading are Han and Leia stories. I'm good at offering constructive criticism, dealing with characterization issues and offering dialogue options. At times, I also appear to be a walking encyclopedia of SW film and EU information. :)
Generally I'd prefer stories that are 50 pages or shorter (in Word). I might make exceptions, so if your story is longer, describe it for me. :) Han and Leia are my favorite types of romance, but I like Ani/Ami and Obi/Sabe as well. I love song-fics. Stories I would not read: Anything set out to make either Lando Calrissian or Bria Tharen look bad, and any Ani/Ami stories that contain spoilers to eps 3.
I've done beta work before and enjoy the process.
Limits : Cade Ollistar has not input any limits. This does not mean that Cade Ollistar has none.
I have loved reading and writing since elementary school. My particular writing style leans towards a darker side of adventure and romance. Romance is almost inevitable in my plots for some reason that still cannot be explained. Fighting scenes are very difficult to write in a way that doesn't bore the reader, and in so the writer has to put more effort or lose his/her audience.
