About my services: Hello all! Alastair here. First off, Iíll give you a little bit of background info to get my credentials going.

I am an English major and am in my second semester of college. I have taken the AP English Language and AP English Literature exams and have received 4s (out of 5) on both. I received a score of 710 (out of 800) on my SAT English Literature subject test, 680 in the Writing portion of my SAT (out of 800), and a score of 33 (out of 36) on the English portion of my ACT. And of course, I'm a mod, if that says anything.

I can beta reasonably well in regards to plot and in-characterness for all of the above listed fandoms, though the fandoms Iíve written/watched/read the most, and am credibly comfortable with are Prince of Tennis, Kingdom Hearts, Katekyo Hitman Reborn!, The Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, and the Twilight series.

Iím the type of beta whoíll really pick through each and every sentence for grammar/spelling/punctuation. If Iím not sure of something, Iíll look it up. If you think a correction Iíve made is questionable, Iíd be happy to talk it over with you about it; in no way are my beta skills infallible.

In the past, Iíve betaíd for many people of all ages, and some of the experiences have been ratherÖ unpleasant. All I ask for is the due courtesy and respect for my services, and weíll get along swimmingly.

If you choose me as your humble beta, please be sure to include your pen name, your preferred method of betaing (via GoogleDocs or any other cloud service, sent as an attached Microsoft Word file, etc.), and the story elements you would like me to check for (grammar, plot, characterization, etc.).

If for some reason Luna is acting buggy and after a week at most I havenít replied to your email, then try me at alastairverre at gmail dot com, replacing the respective words with their symbolic counterparts, of course. I make certain to respond within a certain time-frame, so you donít have to worry about me abandoning my responsibilities and falling off the planet.
Will not read: Modding has given me a rather high tolerance for everything, so I'm open to betaing anything, really.
