This is a list of all members of the Board who are willing to beta on a regular basis. Feel free to add yourself (alphabetically)! Include fandoms in which you are knowledgeable, along with areas of specialty (SPaG, Britpicking, dialogue, etc.), and don’t forget to update your entry with new fandoms and the like.

In a sincere attempt to keep this list up to date, we removed all beta readers who have not been seen anywhere near the PPC for over one year, and we plan to repeat this annually.

LAST CLEANUP: July 8, 2016.

Cassie Cameron-Young Edit

  • E-mail: cassie dot dramateacher at googlemail dot com

Prefers to work in Gdocs. Best at SPaG and canon details, and is notorious Britpicker; please specify if Britpicking is desired or to be avoided. Willing to do last-minute jobs, and if you've heard nothing from her for more than three days, poke her.


Off the top of her head, and with the help of her bookcase, she can handle:

  • Angels and Demons/The Da Vinci Code (bookverse only)
  • The Belgariad/Malloreon and Elenium/Tamuli
  • Assorted Disney films
  • Chobits (manga only)
  • Chronicles of Narnia (bookverse only)
  • Discworld
  • Earth's Children
  • Good Omens
  • Harry Potter (bookverse only)
  • His Dark Materials
  • The Life of Brian
  • Lord of the Rings (including Silmarillion and HoME)
  • Monty Python and the Holy Grail
  • Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Redwall

Can handle various other books, check with her as required.

Data Junkie Edit

  • E-mail:

It's much easier to just ask if I know a fandom or not. If not, I'll usually go look it up just so I can still be of some little use. Fairly good as SPaG, though I may miss a punctuation misuse, or misuse one myself. Also, if you submit a Word document, don't be terribly surprised if my corrections show up in red text. The other option is me scanning the print-out that's been written on with a red pen and sending that back.

Note: Wheel of Time beyond book 4 or so, and any Tolkien beyond LotR and The Hobbit are going to be a no. I know vague details, but not major plot points or anything like that. Same deal for Harry Potter book 7 and pretty much all of Torchwood.

doctorlit Edit

doctorlit is temporarily on hiatus from beta work until the archive is complete.

  • E-mail and AIM: keyoflit[at]yahoo[dot]com (both checked regularly)

I prefer to work in Microsoft Word, but am warming to GoogleDocs. Please, put me to work beta-ing your stories, and help keep my brain focused on the PPC. Have little time in winter and spring, less busy the rest of the year.

  • E-mail: JulyFlame At Gmail Dot Com
  • Fandoms: Harry Potter, Discworld, 1632, DCAU, DC (to an extent), Marvel (to an extent), so on.
  • Note: Also willing to do intense betaing and content help for original works; this involves one on one IM/chat sessions and homework. Yes, homework.

  • Young Wizards
  • Can read for LotR, but if it involves The Silmarillion at all it's a horrible plan
  • Assorted others that slip the mind; inquire within. I lean toward SF&F and JRPGs.

Miah Edit

  • E-mail: miah.arthur at gmail dot com

Will beta any type of mission for style, consistency, plot, etc. Cannot beta for SPaG. Prefers Google Docs. Perfectly willing to beta fandoms that she is not familiar with, but is familiar with the following list.


Neshomeh Edit

  • E-mail: neshomeh [dot] soul [at] gmail [dot] com

Neshomeh will beta any type of mission in any continuum if asked nicely, as long as her work schedule allows it. Don't be afraid to send a request by e-mail. She is especially good at catching mechanical errors—SPaG, word choice, capitalization, paragraphing, etc.—and for matters of PPC canon and compatibility therewith. She does not do rush jobs and likes to go through the process at least twice, once before edits are made and once again after, so don't ask if you're not willing to wait.


Neshomeh is especially fond of and functionally (*) to thoroughly (***) knowledgeable about these continua:

She may be particularly willing to beta missions in these continua, especially if her favorite characters are involved.
