ABOUT THIS COMMUNITY
This is a community created to bring together Hawaii Five-0 fanfic/RPF writers and beta-readers.
Many thanks to the maintainers of spn_betas who generously allowed us to borrow heavily from their rules and templates!
The beta-reader is a rare and marvelous creature, the one reader who will take a fledgling story and help the writer turn it into something beautiful and unexpected. The writer-beta relationship is one of the most important ones there is, and it can be wonderful when the chemistry is right and the words are flowing.
It’s unlikely you will find The One with your first choice. When you do find the beta with whom you want to spend the majority of your writing days, remember that they are doing this for the love of the craft just as much as you are, and for less reward. Treat your beta with respect, lavish praise and affection on them, send them cookies (virtual and otherwise!) and don’t’t forget to credit them each and every time you post a story!Your beta is your staunchest source of support, and they will be your greatest fandom resource as a writer.

HAWAIIAN IS SEXYDon't forget to Tag your posts!
And remember, betas have as much choice in this as writers. Just because you think beta xxx looks perfect for you, that doesn't mean that they will think the same about you or your fic. Betas can and will say no, with or without providing a reason, so keep in mind that 'betas have real lives too'.
Please remember to check the poster's info to make sure they are compatible with you and your fic.
Please note that this is a beta-finding community, not a betaing community, so please do not post fic in the comm.
Mahalo, and ho'okomo ! Thank you, and be welcome here!
