    Wren - Very Available!

    After taking a short break away from the boards, I am back to put my beta experience to good use. I am very open minded and willing to read almost anything, so please consider me in your search for a Beta!

    Availability: I am a college student, which means that my studies have to come first. I currently have a lot of free time (except during midterm and final exams, of course) and have been managing my time fairly well, so I am able to handle almost any amount of work you throw at me. I should be able to get your writing back to you in about a week without a problem. Of course, the longer the document, the more time it will take. If you have a deadline, though, let me know and I will work with it as best I can, but I will let you know if it just won't work so you have enough time to find someone else. I would also prefer to send a document back and forth several times if a large portion is rewritten or drastically changed.

    Strengths: As you probably have noticed by now, my biggest strength is that I have a tendency to write a lot more than I need to, so expect lengthy, in-depth comments. My grammar and punctuation are top-notch, thanks to having an English teacher as a mother. I am also pretty good at helping you find the best word choice for your fic. I am very good with plot development and will let you know when it's too slow and boring or too fast and confusing. I will also point out plot holes and OOC actions whenever I spot them.

    Weaknesses: I am not British, so I can't BritPick. However, I can at least point out when something definitely does NOT sound British, though that is about it. Also, I am not very good at spelling, though I can usually tell when something is misspelled (or spellcheck tells me). I do not always know the spellings or capitalization of Potterverse terms, but I will find out if I am unsure. I don't always catch errors in Canon, but that's what the Lexicon is for, right?

    Preferred Categories: General, Romance, and Dark/Angsty fictions are my specialty, but I will also be happy with Humor or Contest Entries if they are interesting and have some sort of story-line.

    Preferred Sub-Categories: Post-Hogwarts and Next Generation are definitely more my strengths, but I also enjoy General, Mystery, Historical, and Poetry, though I may not be a perfect match for in-depth fics of these categories.

    Preferred Genres: I suppose you could throw anything my way. Romance, friendship, family, action, adventure, mystery, suspense, comedy, tragedy, ect...

    Preferred Pairings: My OTPs are Ron/Hermione, Rose/Scorpius, and Tonks/Charlie. I am willing to do almost any pairing that is Canon compliant. I am also very interested in unlikely couples/rare pairs (my favorite being Cormac McLaggen/Susan Bones), so if you have a romance between two minor characters, I will probably take it with no questions asked.

    Categories I Won't Do: Alternate Universe (without a lot of very good convincing and an amazing story with good reason for the AU warning)

    Sub-Categories I Won't Do: I am not really comfortable doing Marauder Era fictions. I am far from an expert on this era and the characters in it, so I am not a good person to turn to for these types of fics.

    Genres I Won't Do: I can't think of anything that I really don't like to read, so nothing yet.

    Pairings I Won't Do: Anything that's completely non-Canon (ie. Harry/Hermione).

    Ratings/Warnings I Will Do: Abuse, Character Death, DH Spoilers, Dubious Consent, Mild Profanity, Non-Consensual Sex, Pottermore Spoilers, Self Injury, Sexual Situations, Substance Abuse, Suicide, and Violence

    Ratings/Warnings I Won't Do: Alternate Universe, Book 6/7 Disregarded, Epilogue? What Epilogue?, Mental Disorders, Slash, and Student/Teacher Romance

    This sounds very interesting, gold ink (if I can call you that for short). I would be happy to Beta this. I will send you a PM with my email address soon!

    Title of Story: Bleeding Love
    Genre: Dark/Angsty
    Ships: Blaise Zabini/OC
    Drabble, One-Shot, Short Chaptered, or Long Chaptered: One Shot
    Approximate Word/Chapter Count: 1048
    Permanent Y/N: *shrugs* Whatever you wish.
    Summary: Have an excerpt! *throws pie*

    Closed off from love,
    I didn't need the pain.

    Aeora took another swig of the Fire Whiskey, sliding her back down the wall of her kitchen. She leaned her head back, closing her eyes. Another swig, and the familiar buzz that tingled in the back of her mind grew more persistent. She sighed heavily, brushing some of her blonde hair out of her face. She'd almost been Aeora Zabini, but thank Merlin she'd gotten herself away from him. Now she remained simply, Aeora Alexander.
    Anything You Want Me To Pay Extra Attention To/Why Do You Want A Beta: I really want to round out Aeora. I made her up on the spot, and I definitely don't want her to be a Mary-Sue.

    Hi Wren, I'm wondering if you could maybe beta a story for me? I know it's the holidays and everyone's pretty busy, but if you have the time for this it would be great and I really don't mind about the time.

    Username: Theloonyhermione
    Title of Story: Albus Potter and the Room of Requirement
    Genre: Next Gen
    Ships: None so far, they're only in their first year and nothing very romantic is happening.
    Drabble, One-Shot, Short Chaptered, or Long Chaptered: Um... I would say long chaptered, because I'm expecting about ten chapters and each of them around 1,000-2,000 words.
    Approximate Word/Chapter Count: Per chapter, around 1,000-2,000 words.
    Permanent Y/N: If you can, yes. But if not, just doing the first chapter for me would be great as well.
    Summary: I don't really have one (which is something I often need help on if you can), but it's about the adventures Albus Potter faces during his first year at Hogwarts.
    Anything You Want Me To Pay Extra Attention To/Why Do You Want A Beta: Okay, so I've already had a few betas for this but some of them didn't work out and i still have one but she has a limited amount of time. Basically, I started this story when I was 11 and it's probably the worst thing I've ever written that I've shown to the public. I've rewritten the first chapter and will work on the next few later - I'm done five out of the ten but I have to rewrite those and finish the next five. So basically, it is terrible and I need a lot of help. If you aren't willing to do this or have too much on your hands right now I don't blame you. Hope you can help me, but if not, have a good holiday!

    Thanks so much to Toni for making this wonderful banner and avvie. Quote on avatar is from the song Sigh No More by Mumford and Sons. <3
    My total BFFLE is Kreacher Feacher/Loony at Heart/Taylor. Don't let her scare you. XD
    I'm quite busy at the moment, so I may be pretty spotty or just not seem to appear at all. I'll hopefully be back to normal in a few months.

    Sure, I'd love to help! Actually, the holidays are my least busy times of the year, so you've caught me at a good time! I'll PM you with my email address now.

    Title of Story: I haven't decided yet
    Genre: Next Generation, maybe Dark
    Ships: None, romance is not an issue
    Drabble, One-Shot, Short Chaptered, or Long Chaptered: Long Chaptered
    Approximate Word/Chapter Count: usually 1500-2500 words/chapter, sometimes more
    Permanent Y/N: permanent, if you're interested
    Summary: Sorry, I don't have a proper summary yet, but the story starts in 2024, when Scorpius Malfoy graduates from Hogwarts and has a plan to act against all the changes that occurred in the Wizarding World since the fall of Voldemort. There will be violence, character deaths and sensitive themes.
    Anything You Want Me To Pay Extra Attention To/Why Do You Want A Beta: I am practically a beginner, since I did this only once before, several years ago. English is not my first language, but I can mention that I'm currently attending an English language college.

    Let me know if you're interested to help me.
    Thanks!

    Well, you can look at anything. I’ve been holding this meaning to write and meaning to write it. I just need to get it out of my head and done. I’m in college , too, so I get the deadlines.
