This is going to sound very strange, but... I'm looking for someone who has read the book Perfume by Patrick Suskind to beta a short (approx. 500-600 words) story for that, er, fandom, were there any such fanbase. To answer the other questions:

Is there a pairing in your story?: no
What elements would you like to be checked?: Sentence structure, word choice; does the tone and style mirror that of the original book?
When do you need your story to be beta'd?: Before Sept. 26th (a Monday) - ie: within a week and a half
What rating is your story?: PG-13? There will be character death, but this is really supposed be similar to the tone of the book, so nothing graphic.
What category does your story subscribe to?: The same genre as the book itself: satire; dry, morbid humor
Does your fic take place in an alternate universe?: no

I think I just asked for the beta who doesn't exist. ^^; I would be immensely grateful to anyone who can help me with this. Thanks!

What elements would you like to be checked?: grammer.....grammer....uh....grammer...i'm not an english speaker and it's my weakpoint this grammer thing. also i would like canon corrections on my Hellsing stuff because it's fans are the biggest in canon correction, but that is optional.
