Hi! Welcome to my little corner of Fan Fiction. I'm an avid reader of Twific--I discovered Twilight in early 2009 and got hooked on fanfic later that year. While I've never written any of my own, I've read and loved many stories. Check my list of favorites for recs.

I'm also a beta. I don't have a Beta profile here because FFn requires you to publish your own work before you can beta for others. No matter. I edit for Project Team Beta, and I'm a mod over at Emergency Beta Service. (However, I'm not taking personal beta requests at this time.)
