Red_Ink, I'd be happy to beta for you, if you like. :wink: :D
And for anyone else for that matter, also.

Name: On here and fanfic.net I'm known as jane, but anyone who knows me in real life calls me Trina. Either works for me. :wink:

Beta Experience: I've beta-ed for my friends before by correcting papers and editing her stories that she's written.

Strengths: Spelling and grammar. And making the dialogue flow.

Weaknesses: None.

What ratings will you do?: Any kind of rating works for me. Trust me when I say' I'm not shy one bit when it comes to reading stories.

What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash): Any kind of couple works for me, personally.

What Fandoms will you do?: Any kind of fandom as long as I have read the story. Let me know what book or whatever it's from and I'll tell you if I've read it or not. If I have, then' send me your stuff!!

Will you do crossovers?: I'm not particularly a huge fan of them, but if I actually know the stories, then I might do it, if you're lucky, that is.

Avaliblity: I'm online basically twenty-four/seven, so you can give it to me any time of day or night. :wink: But come September, I'll be a little less available, seeing as how I'm going to college then. But I assure you, I'll still be on a whole lot.[/b]

Familiarity with FictionPress: Umm, well, I've read some stories on there, but haven't actually written anything there before though.

Writing Experience: I've written two fanfic stories [[on my third right now]], written two one-shots, and have written amateur work for school last year.

Comments: None in particular. :D :D

What I'm looking for is someone who knows the characters really well, and can help me make sure no one is out of character. Like Jasper. I have alot of trouble with thinking he isn't written right.

Also, if you can help me with making sure I'm not over using words or phrases, and making sure everything is nice and easy to read, that would be great...And also make sure the story idea/plot isn't stupid, of course...

Thats really all I'm looking for. Uhm, message me on here if you're interested, and I can send you what I have so far. ^^;;

Name: chica_chilena/Nicole
Beta Experience: beta-read 4 different stories
Strengths: Spelling, discovering OOC, pharagraphs (I'm good at those :wink: ), etc...
Weaknesses: Idioms or slang (I'm Norwegian/Chilean you see)
What ratings will you do?: Mostly anything, but nothing too adult-themed.
What couples will you do? (canon, un-canon, het, slash): well, anything if it doesn't totally crash. Not Lapush/Werewolf relationship unforunately (have only learned the basics about werewolfs)
What Fandoms will you do?: Only experienced in twilight. I could do other, but promise nothing.
Will you do crossovers?: If I know the other fandom, sure!
Avaliblity: I check my mail at least once a day. Right now I have time (kind of anyway). When school starts I will be less availible. Warning: Because of the lack of time I will only do one shots/ two shots/similar for the time being.

If you have any questions; ask!
