Beta?  

I've been working on writing up and finishing off some of the stories I've had on hold during exams and Weasley_Fest writing.  Yesterday I put 'The Backs Of Their Heads' in the 'now beta' folder on my computer, but, alas, it is beta-less.  I don't like to ask the people who've beta read for me before because whilst the two main characters are from Harry Potter the premise and setting is from Sandman and the crossover-ness doesn't end there.  Honestly, the reader only needs to be familiar with Harry Potter, so I wouldn't mind a beta being unfamiliar with all of the other fandoms.  I'd just like to know if it makes sense and where the mistakes are, those ones that creep up on you when you're not looking.  

Any volenteers?  *Has hopeful face*  It's about 5,600 words, is a PG13 to be on the safe side and the two main characters are Dean, who is the narrator, and Luna.  

Also, I'm on the home computer tonight and I noticed that the text on my journal seems to be all different sizes.  'Tis odd and confuzzling.  Is anyone else seeing this?

Deeply sorry, but I am unable to beta. Summer classes are beating me in the vagina. Uck.

BUT, I do see the weird text size thing. Do you usually copy and paste directly from WOrd when you write fics? It could be the rish text editor trying to preerve all of your original formatting. Try posting in HTML mode consistently, and see how that goes. If it doesn't work, I must conclude that your LJ is possessed. Yeah.

Beating you in the vagina? *grins*

Glad I'm not the only one! At least it's probably me and not the computer that's done something odd. I've pasted a few stories from Word, but some of the dodgy text was written straight into lj. Hmm, I shall play about with it.
