Author has written 2 stories for Winx Club.
Welcome to my profile. I hope you came because you want to give me a chance as your beta. Before you contact me, there are some things you should know.
I have not been on FF.net in yeearrs. I haven't written fanfiction just as long. I used to have so many stories on here, but I've deleted them. They were written when I was around 12, I wanna say? They do not reflect my current writing skills at all. I have, however, left two stories up because they were the first ones I felt very committed to at one point. I even tried to re-write one about 5 or 6 years ago. I only say this so that you don't go looking at those stories thinking that they can give you a feel for what I can do. They can't, it's simply been too long. I stopped writing fanfiction when I entered college. I still write, I just recently graduated with a degree in English and I'm trying to enroll into an MFA program. This is why I became a beta, to increase my knowledge and experience with writing.
You are more than welcome to read the stories I have here. There are from a little cartoon I was obsessed with when I was young, called The Winx Club. It's what got me started with writing. It and the many, many people who encouraged me to continue. I leave it up for nostalgia, mostly. They're both incomplete works and I probably won't continue them, haha. Be warned: They are horribly written. :D Everyone starts somewhere, right?
And now, my actual beta information:
Trying to jump start my amateur career as an editor.
If you'd like a beta for one of your works, please consider me. I can do one, two or all of the following:
- Proofreading and language
- Plot, pacing and continuity
- General style
- Inspiration and encouragement (Always included!)
I can do either line edits or overall commentary. I will also add comments to line edits, unless you ask me not to, so that you can have a little bit of both.
I prefer to use Word and its "Track Changes" function to do my edits. While I am your beta, we can keep in touch in any way and however often you'd like. E-mail and FB Messenger are both good ways we can keep in touch if you have any questions about my edits.
A bit about myself:
My name is Aiko, I am 23 years old. I graduated from college and I'm trying to get into an MFA program. In the meantime, I have plenty of spare time that I'd like to use by gaining some extra experience in writing.
My OTP is Stony, just to get that out there. I love the Marvel fandom, even did a RP blog as Steve Rogers on tumblr for a few months. But definitely open to other ships as well, this one is just my favorite.
My other fandoms include Harry Potter, BBC Sherlock and Batman. Not DC, just Batman. I had a whole Batman phase, growing up. Big fan of anime, too.
This isn't the whole of it, I am open to more! Contact me. :)
A bit about my experience:
Unfortunately, I'm just starting out as a beta so this is quite sparse. Eventually (hopefully), I would like a list of works I've beta'd to go right here. But, for now, I'll list the other kinds of experience I have.
- Bachelor's Degree in English
- Been writing short stories since 2013
Very short, I know. Give me a chance and I promise I'll do my very best!
E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org - If you do choose to use this method of contacting me, please use the word "Beta" in the subject line.
I also have a tumblr and Ao3 account, both under the name "yurama."
You can also message me right here! Use the subject: "Beta"
[I just finished editing my profile and everything. I still need to go through my favorite stories list on here to see what kind of things I was into when I was 12...that should be fun.]
