I'm looking for betas for my first fanfic.  If you like Harry Potter and have some time to read a potentially long story, post to here and I'll get a mass (or not so mass) email out to those of you interested with more details.

Yay Harry Potter!  If I weren't ridiculously busy, I would totally beta for you.  Alas and alack!

Out of curiosity, what's it going to be about?

It focuses on Tonks, my fave character.  I'm writing the backstory on the pet I always give her when I play her in RPs, as well as some angst and romance with Hagrid.  Cuz I'm the only person in the world that ships Tonks/Hagrid.  I'm insane.

I like Harry Potter! But culd you give us a cliffnotes version, or a summary? And tell us how long it is exactly? I'm not that great with fanfics, but I do like some.

I'm not really sure how long it wil be.  My goal was ten chapters, but I'm already to chapter 6, and it's still mostly angst...Eventually I'll post it here, on the writing thread.

So how many pages are you currently up to now? I could do a little reading, but I've been pretty busy as of late with class projects and the like.

each chapter is an average of 1.5 pages, and I'm up to chapter 10.  So, basic math says...about 15 pages so far.  Damn, now I feel inconsequential.
