Kind of got sick of my old pen name here on fanfic (Thorsten P. Ziegler) so I decided to change it to something that reflects my love of Harry Potter, specifically my love of Severus Snape.
I am currently working on an HP fic that will eventually be a trilogy. I'm writing the third part first, then I will be writing the 2 "prequels"(weird, I know), and I'm in desperate need of a beta. Before volunteering for the job here's a little about what you would be dealing with.
-I've always been terrible with grammar, I mean what I write is readable but I have trouble with commas, run-on sentences, semi-colons, and all sorts of other things, so if you are a grammar Nazi and terrible grammar gives you a headache it's possible you won't enjoy correcting my writing
-The story IS a Sevitus/Severitus so if you don't like the whole Snape-as-Harry's-father thing you aren't going to enjoy being my beta
-I'd prefer it if my beta is British or is fairly familiar with British slang, dialects (especially Yorkshire), colloquialisms, etc in order to weed out the "Americanisms" that are bound to crop up all over my writing
-My story has 3 original characters (one of them is a main character) so I need someone who will help me keep them from becoming from becoming Mary Sues/Gary Stus
If you think you may be interested send me a private message, I'll show you some excerpts of my fic and you can show me some of your own writing or fics that you've beta'd and we can go on from there ;-)
Working on a companion piece to "He Was Born on a Saturday" called "He Died on a Saturday" (creative I know, but hey, my favorite Headmaster was born and died on a Saturday so what's a gal to do). I'm thinking of publishing it on May 2nd... but I'm not so sure I'll be able to wait that long haha
UPDATE: 5/1/12 'He Died on a Saturday' is complete. Have yet to find a beta for my trilogy but I may publish the first chapter in a month or so anyway.
I've started posting Part III of my trilogy "Percussus Resurgo" (Stricken I Rise Again) but I'm still looking for a beta so if you're interested let me know.
