I've decided to try something I don't go for as often as, perhaps, I should. I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to Beta for me. In this case, I'm looking for a Beta for my Steven Universe College (University) AU. Familiarity with Steven Universe is a must, and being caught up on the show would definitely be ideal.
An open mind and willingness to read uncommon ships is also a must. This is a very, very slash-tastic AU - I legit think Greg/Rose is the only het ship I've got going, maybe one or two other minor ones - but we are talking about Steven Universe here, so I'm hoping that won't be an issue.
We can communicate over email, or we can stick to DreamWidth, in which case I'll set up Google Docs, or just post private entries. Or if there's a third option you want to explore? Sure, let me know and I'll try to make it work!
Also, if you can't offer to Beta, but you think you know someone who'd be interested, or know of some kind of Beta-finding community here on DW, please tell me about them/the comm!
If you'd like to see some of my writing, my AO3 works are here
. What I have up there isn't exactly recent, but it's what I've written most recently (and beyond). Honestly, I could have done varying degrees of better on certain fics especially. ('Hoist the Colors' and 'test my limits' are only still up because they were gifts, and unfortunately, I just realized they were gifts for the same person. Alas.)
Important Edit: Let me know if there are topics you're uncomfortable reading, too, in case those would be a problem.
The only big, triggering issues I'm dealing with so far are Lapis having been in an emotionally/verbally abusive relationship with (an "offstage") Jasper and the death of a character who very, very roughly represents Pink Diamond, which isn't so much explored in detail, itself, but will probably involve a terminal illness, and the character who (very, very roughly) represents Blue Diamond is her sister who hasn't dealt with the loss very well. (I took the sibling path over the admittedly-more-likely-in-canon romantic path; it's not incestuous.)
But already, I've also got a very 'Lapis has a morbid sense of humor' reference to fire and people (specifically, Lapis) burning, so YMMV.
Second Edit: The first part of the College AU is up, actually, without having been Beta Read, so that can give you an idea of what you're getting into!
