Awww... no one wants to beta read it? We promise you'll probably shed a few tears by the end of it :P

I will! If you're willing to wait about two hours for a response.

I'd say on this side of never ;) I only found a couple of simple grammar corrections but I don't think there's anything I could do to make it any better beyond that. You guys are brilliant and EVIL and I'm still sniffling.

I may or may not, it might even be a figment of your fevered imagination, be in possession of a very short secret santacarius story that needs a quick beta read from someone who has more patience than the author.

it may be extremely short, only just topping the minimum word count, not that this story actually exists because this is just a hallucination caused by that cheese you ate last night.  you remember it, it was in the fridge, hiding behind the jar of mayo as it tried to build a sentient civilisation whilst beating off attacks from red skin tomatoes.

anyway, you might want to beta read this piece of your imagination

i am all over being a beta reader if it doesnt involve checking for spelling or grammatical errors. Bc that is not my field at all, im just here for the story. Sooo i may have just included my name on the list of people not to beta read, but again if you just want to send it out to someone who is not on the Santacarius for said reasons above, send it my way. I love hallucinations and cheese.
