Hello guys! I am currently writing some fics to the Party 4 Harry, HP-Drizzle and HD-Cliche fests, so I'll need a beta for this fics. I am still writing them, but I'm pretty sure the Party 4 Harry and HP-Drizzle ones will be around 3/4k long. The HD-Cliche though will be longer than that.

(The party 4 harry one will have past!MPREG. All of them are top!Harry, Bottom!Draco.)

I would really like if someone could take a look on those and help me out with errors, britpick, flow or something like this. The first one is due 31st of July and the last one, August 15th.

Thank you in advance!

Title: Boy Who Lived
Gaining Access: n/a
Author: Megii of Mysteri OusStranger
Word Count: 28745 words, complete in 6 chapters
Alternate Links to Fic: n/a
Pairing: Harry Potter/ Merope Gaunt, Tom Riddle
Rating: PG-13
Author's Summary: Not even the birth of her son could compel Merope to continue living after her husband's abandonment, but the green-eyed stranger sitting by her deathbed, cradling her squalling babe, proves to be an unexpected savior. Time Travel.
Author's Website: AFF, FFN, Tumblr
Why everyone should read this: This isn't a cliched Harry travels back in time and adopts Tom to raise as his own. Even the pairing isn't the main focus of the fic, even though it is a nice addition. Nor is the focus on the Ministry and it's shady practices, or on Merope and her miserable life until Harry shows up. This fic is, in fact, a story about Tom Riddle Jr. and growing up with loving parents.

It's interesting to see Tom grow and mature and despite Harry and Merope's best efforts to show him love and make him feel loved, he still does not turn out completely 'normal'. Without giving away too much, some events still take place and leaves you wondering if this means that he's still bound to become Voldemort or whether those events were just 'mishaps'. Only time will tell.

He moved slightly, gesturing that he intended to clasp it around her neck, and she compliantly lifted away her perm so that his fingers could flit across the nape of her neck. The locket settled heavy and familiar against her sternum, and she held it tightly in her fist, knuckles ashen, palm aching. His hands lingered just a bit longer than appropriate, one of his hands darting up to touch her hand that held up her hair and the other trailing along her too-sharp jaw line to wipe at the stream of tears dripping from her chin.

"Please, don't cry. I've never been good at dealing with crying girls…"

Maybe it was the alcohol or the emotional upheaval, or maybe she couldn't tolerate his kindness any longer, or maybe it was a combination of all three, but her control finally snapped and she spun around to face him and pressed her mouth firmly against his, hands flying up to hold his head in place. Her aim was off by a few centimeters, but that was remedied quickly enough and once he had recovered from his shock and teetering balance—she had nearly knocked him onto his bum—he slipped his arms around her long waist and kissed her back. It didn't last particularly long, nor was it especially passionate, and it was far too wet, but when their kiss broke and they came up for air, she exclaimed the most romantic thing Harry had heard to date:

"I want a divorce!"

Subscription/Access Policy: Feel free to friend me and I'll probably grant access, although most of my posts will be public anyway! I'm looking to make more friends, so I'd be happy to have you, but you don't need to feel pressure to grant me access if that makes you uncomfortable.

Fannish Interests: I've had a lot of the years (shoujo manga, Harry Potter, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Mass Effect, superhero comics), but lately I'm focusing mainly on Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Star Trek. I love a good space story! I recently decided to do a proper watch through of all of classic Doctor Who, so I'm having a lot of fun with that.

I like to post about: My journal is new, but I plan to post commentary and pictures as I make my way through Classic Who and the Big Finish audios. I'll also post about New Who, Star Wars and Star Trek, my personal life a little, and my cat a lot. I make icons occasionally.

About Me/Other Info: I'm a genderfluid (they/them prounouns), mentally ill nerd who likes being friendly and considerate. I have a lot of passion for my fandoms, although I can also be a little scatterbrained and flighty. I do my best to be consider of other people and to own up to any mistakes I make. I like to have a quiet, good time talking about science-fiction, animals (I love marmots and other related animals like squirrels), makeup, and toy collecting.

I'm looking to decrease my tumblr presence (too stressful for me), and increase my presence on other platforms such as this one.

Thanks for reading!

Will beginning each part of my book with a stanza be a total turn-off for agents? Not including it in a response to a request for pages would be dishonest; but I realize the only other creatures in the sea who share my love of poetry might be cryptozoological.

Is including supplementary/reference material at the end of a manuscript frowned upon? (Not as extreme as Operation Red Jericho)

Dearest Carcharodon Inquiro,
Filo is a glitch in a centuries-old U.N. plan. The Academy was designed to admit one child from each family. There shouldn’t have been any siblings. Filo and his brother must decide which of them is to attend and which must stay behind. When another child fails to show on Collection day, Filo secretly takes Silas’ place. He thinks he is merely an imposter protecting his frightened friend. He is trying to fit into a hole he was not designed for.

This is a hot mess of backstory and explanation. SIMPLIFY! I should be able to read this paragraph straight through without pausing to think "huh??" and at the end know what problem the main character faces. Yes, it's really hard to get it right.  It helps to prune out everything that doesn't matter, AND go in chronological order.

Filo is a glitch in a centuries-old U.N. plan.
The Academy was designed to admit one child from each family.
The Academy admits one child from each family.
There shouldn’t have been any siblings.
Filo and his brother must decide which of them is to attend and which must stay behind.
When another child fails to show on Collection day, Filo secretly takes Silas’ place.
(I'm assuming that Filo's brother is NOT Silas' but that is not clear here at all.)

He thinks he is merely an imposter protecting his frightened friend.
He is trying to fit into a hole he was not designed for.
But: he's not. And this is where the query goes flat. If he's not just an imposter, what is he?

At the Advancement Academy, 21 students are instructed in the ways of an ideal Humanity. A perfected gene-pool, crafted ethics, and dogged morals. Their charter from the United Nations is to restore mankind to a better state.

Eleven years later, all Filo wants is to complete his training unnoticed. To maintain calm and order. A resurgence of suppressed memories and the appearance of Silas dissolve this balance and bring Filo under the microscope. He can either escape the compound with Silas or stay and let the Academy run its course. Escape would jeopardize not only the success of his fellows, but the entire species. If he stays, he might be collateral damage.

And here's where I've stopped reading. That entire first paragraph is now backstory. It's clear the main part of the plot takes place here, eleven years later. And what you've written is too abstract to be interesting. I'm confused about who Silas is, I have no idea what happened to his brother, and I thought "The Academy" was an institution not something like a disease.

Then there’s the matter of being an asexual male charged with repopulating the planet.

Huh? Where the everloving holy moly did that come from?

INITUS is 47,000 words of young adult fiction and deals with the paradoxes of ethics and diversity from the revolving viewpoints of Filo, his brother, their co-conspiring classmates, and Silas. INITUS is GENESIS with a human instigator -- a real-life macrocosmic ‘Take Two’.

I don't understand any of that. 

And there's no way you can write any kind of complex world-building-required fantasy in 47,000 words. You'll need twice that.

Thank you for your time and consideration!

As to your questions:

(1) Will beginning each part of my book with a stanza be a total turn-off for agents? Not including it in a response to a request for pages would be dishonest; but I realize the only other creatures in the sea who share my love of poetry might be cryptozoological.

 It wouldn't be dishonest at all. I'm not sure why you think it would be. Lots of things get added to a book betwixt submission to an agent and publication. Glossaries, indexes, timelines, maps, and epigraphs (which is what you're talking about.)

You can include them if you want of course. I personally find them distracting and useless but I just skip over them. I don't stop reading if you include them.

(2) Is including supplementary/reference material at the end of a manuscript frowned upon? (Not as extreme as Operation Red Jericho)

This is added later if the editor thinks it's beneficial.  For example, there are extensive author notes in Gary Corby's historical novels about the real life events and timeline for the world he's created. All of that is added after the book has been edited.

Those things aren't even close to your problem here though.

Your problem is two fold: a hot mess of confusion in the query, and word count in the book.

First things first: figure out what you left out of the book if you think it's finished at 47K. Then rework the query to show us:

Who is the main character?
What does he want?
What is keeping him from getting what he wants?
What must she sacrifice to get what he wants?

Title: The Scent That Lingers
Gaining Access: n/a
Author: seraphimerising
Word Count: 19935 words, complete
Alternate Links to Fic: DW
Pairing: Ron Weasley/ Pansy Parkinson
Rating: R
Author's Summary: The moment that changes everything. Warnings: Angst. Lots of plot. Frank talk of death and suicide. Not friendly towards Hermione at all. Creature fic. EWE/AR. Switching POVs
Author's Website: LJ, FFN, DW
Why everyone should read this: This is such a different but oh so interesting take on the Veela trope, it took my by surprise when I first found it. Whereas it's usually a Malfoy that turns out to be Veela, it's Pansy in this case. A decade after the war, she finally finds her mate, only for him to be Ron Weasley, who is very much married to Hermione. The author's done a great job of conveying the pain, physically as well as emotionally, Pansy goes through when she decides to reject him. And at the same time, Ron is also miserable but for other reasons.

The author has also done a splendid job of not only portraying the strong friendship between the Slytherins, including Lucius and Narcissa, as they take care of Pansy as she becomes sicker by the day, but also their cunning as they help Pansy reunite with her mate.

Fair warning; there is bashing in this story, and while I'd usually avoid those like the plague, this one is definitely worth the read.

All she could think about was sandalwood. A peaceful calm overwhelmed her. Her heart, however, began to beat faster when her mind and instincts started to tell her: this is it, this is the one, this is your mate –

Ron Weasley?

Her breath escaped her chest as she gaped at her former classmate standing in front of her. Her very married former classmate: one-third of the Golden Trio married to another third.

She stood there in shock: deaf, dumb, and mute. Pansy could see that he was saying something to her but she didn't know what it was. Her entire focus was on comprehending just how nature could be so cruel.

At least without knowing or finding her mate, her death would come slowly and peacefully. The books she had read explained that she would probably wouldn't even notice when the end was near. That one day she would just go to sleep only to never wake again.

However, now, she was forced to make the ultimate decision: actively chase a married man, a War Hero, in order to die peacefully and painlessly -or willingly walk away from him, causing her a death that not only would be sooner, but more debilitating and painful. She knew that many Veela in her shoes would keep putting forth the effort of trying to mate, simply to avoid the death that would have one begging for their sweet release months and sometimes years before it would actually come.

Taking a deep breath, Pansy closed her eyes and mentally signed her death warrant.

Title: A Loving Cup
Author: leela_cat
Word Count: 10270
Alternate Links to Fic: Ao3
Pairing: Harry/Draco/Severus
Rating: NC-17
Author's Summary: Two years after Harry walked out on Severus and Draco, he returns and asks for Severus' help.
Author's Website: Ao3 has all her HP fic.
Why everyone should read this: This is an amazingly beautiful fic! There is angst galore, but it's the good kind of angst, if that makes sense. You can just sense how much each character hurts in this fic, like it's a real, tangible thing. And the ending wasn't something I expected either, which is always nice!
"No, it's you that doesn't understand," Harry said, using his wand to fold his clothes and levitate them into his now-battered school trunk. "I have to go. Ginny's waiting for me."

"So, the littlest Weasley swings her hips, jiggles her tits, and crooks her baby finger, and you just pack up and leave." Draco scowled from his perch on the window seat. "That tells us, now doesn't it? We're just a pair of scarred up Slytherin losers, nowhere near good enough for the pride of Gryffindor's lions."

"It's not like that."

"Tell somebody who cares." Draco tapped his fingers on the wooden backrest. Fucking Severus had a bloody nerve, confiscating his wand.

"She needs me."

And the twat had the sheer gall to have his voice break. As if he was actually sorry to be walking out on them.
