Writing Fanfiction - Essays to Aid Authors and Betas

We currenty have 559 betas in our directory.


Beta [bey-tuh or, chiefly Brit., bee-tuh]
verb: To edit and comment on someone else's work before it's finalized, taken presumably from the old software term "betatesting."
noun: Someone who edits your work upon your request (or bribe).


Disclaimer: The Petulant Poetess does not screen the betas who have posted profiles in this directory. Using one of the betareaders from this listing does not guarantee the story will be accepted for publishing on this site. This service is provided solely to allow authors communicate with potential betareaders.

Brit-picker: NoBritish English: YesAmerican English: YesStrict Canon: Preferred
I'm Available: YesUsual Turnaround Time: 2-3 Days
Preferred Ships: HG/SS
Notes: I don't like slash of any kind. Other than that I'm up for just about anything. I'm very particular about punctuation. I have a lot of fun being a beta and I will also be critical of your plot/storyline/etc. if you would like. I can do minor Brit-picking but I won't claim to be excellent at it; I've lived in Europe but my native language is American English.

Experience: Somewhat ExperiencedAccredited: YesAccredited With: Perfect Imagination
Brit-picker: YesBritish English: YesAmerican English: NoStrict Canon: Unimportant
I'm Available: YesUsual Turnaround Time: 1-2 Weeks
Preferred Ships: AD/MM (Albus/Minerva), HP/RW (Harry/Ron), SS/HG (Severus/Hermione), HP/LL (Harry/Luna), SS/LE (Severus/Lily), AW/MP (Arthur/Molly), SS/NT (Severus/Tonks)
Notes: ***WHOOPEE I AM NOW ACCREDITED!!!***

I WILL NOT beta NC-17 fics or fics containing graphic sex.

I WILL NOT beta DH-compliant fics, or most fics that take HBP into account.

I WILL NOT beta manipulative/uncaring/evil!Dumbledore fics.

I WILL NOT beta threesomes, incest (I can do first cousins, nothing closer), beastiality or stories that glorify rape, child abuse, etc. I have no problem with them otherwise.

No depressing darkfics. Angst, by all means, but a happy ending please!

The only character bashing I will take is Fudge, Voldemort or Umbridge.

At the moment I will only take one-shots.

I prefer stories which are mainly Harry's point of view, though I'm quite good at characterisation with the adults, mainly the teachers. Most ships I'm okay with, though I don't go for slash or femmeslash with large age gaps. I don't know why I don't, that's just me.

Preferred Ships: James/Lily, Draco/Hermione, Snape/Lily
Notes: My favorite stories are Marauder-era, but I enjoy reading almost anything Harry-Potter related. I'm majoring in secondary English education, so I'm very knowledgeable about grammar, punctuation, spelling, and all that technical nonsense. If you've got the story, I can fix all the details. :)

Brit-picker: YesBritish English: YesAmerican English: YesStrict Canon: Unimportant
I'm Available: NoUsual Turnaround Time: 1 Week
Preferred Ships: Harry/Hermione and Hermione/Snape get first priority. I'll do most Hermione fics though, except if she's paired with Dumbledore or someone. That's just too squicky for my tastes. In general, I'm not that into slash, though I do quite like the odd short Harry/Draco, Harry/Snape and Snape/Lupin story, so it's worth asking for one-shots or short chapters. I hate Ginny, so if she's a main character, just... no. If your story doesn't fit into any of those ships but has Harry, Hermione or Snape as a main character, feel free to ask if I'm available.
Notes: Currently available for one-shots only. Possibly available for multi-chapter fics that are only about as long as a one-shot in total. I write in British English, but I am familiar enough with American English to beta it fairly well. I'm love Brit-picking, and I'm usually good at spotting canon errors. I'm still getting the hang of commas according to TPP standards, but I'm pretty sure I have improved drastically. I would prefer not to beta fics with excessive torture or rape in them, but I will if it is necessary to the plot and not just gratuitous. I'm generally very open-minded about content, but I don't read or beta stories about bestiality or parent/child incest. I will usually have a chapter back in a few days, but life gets in the way sometimes, so my official turnaround time is one week unless I specify otherwise. I can beta for spelling and punctuation only, if you wish, but I like dealing with sentence structure and vocabulary. We can go over what you're looking for in a beta in more specific terms once you contact me.
