Experience: ExperiencedAccredited: YesAccredited With: Perfect Imagination
Brit-picker: YesBritish English: YesAmerican English: NoStrict Canon: Unimportant
I'm Available: YesUsual Turnaround Time: 1 Week
Preferred Ships: Severus Snape/anyone male or female, preferably not students, definately not Hagrid or Dumbledore (in a sexual situation at any rate).
Notes: I only beta Potterverse work. I will not read femslash under any circumstances. No Mary Sue stuff please; I can smell it a mile off. If you want real Brit-picking, I'll want you to change any Americanisms in speech patterns, particularly Severus Snape.

Brit-picker: NoBritish English: YesAmerican English: YesStrict Canon: Preferred
I'm Available: YesUsual Turnaround Time: 1 Week
Preferred Ships: Anything but Teacher/Student or H/Hr. Sorry.
Notes: I generally take one weekend per one-shot. Chaptered fics... give me 1 weekends per one-shot-sized chapter. In terms of ships, don't think that I won't read slash or Adult/Student, it's just not Teacher/Student. For example, one of the best one-shots I've ever read was Sirius/Ginny... The only request I make to you (if you are considering me) is that you read your own work once. I'm sorry, but I've lost a lot of time to basic editing. Even the bare minimum helps. Thanks.

Experience: Somewhat ExperiencedAccredited: NoAccredited With: N/A
Brit-picker: YesBritish English: YesAmerican English: NoStrict Canon: Unimportant
I'm Available: YesUsual Turnaround Time: 1 Week
Preferred Ships: Snape/Hermione, Remus/Hermione, Lucius/Hermione, Any slash - particularly Snape/Remus, Snape/Harry, Snape/Harry/Draco, Remus/Sirius, Snape/Lucius. I will do OC pairings, and femslash. I'm not all that fussy on pairings, but those above are the ones I read/write the most.
Notes: I am British, so when I check something, I will probably change it from Americanised spellings and such! I don't mean to, it's just force of habit! I usually just check spelling, grammar, punctuation etc.. I prefer not to change too much of the actual content, as only a writer will know how a story should be written. I do give ideas though, if they are needed. Also, since JK was so contradictory with her own canon, I don't bother overly much with them, unless totally incorrect. If I take longer than a week, please bear with me, I do often work overtime, and have a dependant Grandmother. Just drop me an email and I'll let you know when I can get it done.
