Beta Readers

Below is a list of people who have volunteered to beta Drusilla fanfic. However, all authors should first contact the beta reader to ask if s/he is currently available to beta a story. If you'd like to become a beta reader, please go to the submission page.

Name: Amberina
Specialties: Characterization, oh how I love thee. Can also check for canon details, plot flow, wording, spelling, grammar - pretty much anything you need.
Ratings: R (will read above and below though)
Preferred Pairings: Any
Notes: I don't have time for long fic or works in progress. PWP is a no. Darkfic is my thing. The darker the better. Angst is also very nice.

Name: Angela
Rating: Any rating
Likes: Dru in LA (AtS characters, etc.), well-researched history fic, Anything except Drusilla/Xander.
Dislikes: PWP
Additional: I'd prefer to read for grammar, spelling and characterization, as opposed to giving general comments about a fic - I sound entirely too mean…

Name: Black Rapture
Rating: R- NC-17
Likes: I'm good with punctuation, spelling, and pretty good with brit-picking even though I'm not British.

Additional: You can AIM me at small poultry

Name: Destiny
Ratings: All.
Likes: Dru/Spike, Spike/Buffy or just wild and crazy Drusilla; especially witty lines.
Dislikes: type casting, bad plots, OOC.
Additional: Have some mind boggling lines that really paint pretty pictures or just make you think and I'll build you a shrine!

Name: Heather
Ratings: Any.
Likes: Darla/Dru, Dru/Angel, Dru/Angelus, dark stuff, metaphor-laden flowery prose stories.
Dislikes: Excessive violence, Dru/Riley, spelling Dru's name "Druscilla" or "Drucilla". It's DRUSILLA. Any stories with other spellings in it will be immediately discarded.
