neofox has suggested that I post this advertisement here, since we both thought it would be of interest to fanfiction writers and potential beta readers alike.
Perfect Imagination has been serving the Harry Potter fanfiction community since 2003, providing quality tested beta readers for Harry Potter fanfiction writers. As of February 23rd 2008 the site is expanding to include other fandoms and original writing.
At the moment we have only just opened as a multi-fandom resource, and we are looking to let people know of our existence.
Initially we hope to offer canon inclusive editing for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sailormoon, Digimon, Card Captor Sakura, Harry Potter, DragonballZ, Lord of the Rings, Gundam Wing, Inuyasha, Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh and Original Writing.
Although we do not offer specific help for the Sonic fandom (yet!) we have beta readers in our "Other Fandom" category who are happy to offer a canon non-specific service to writers of all fanfiction.
At Perfect Imagination beta readers are asked to take a short test to demonstrate their expertise. When a passing mark is achieved, a beta can choose their preferred fandoms and create an individual profile for each. Information such as the genre and length of fanfiction, as well as the preferred relationships and the beta reader’s strengths can be listed and are factored into the search process.
Writers can then approach a beta reader via the site with their story details, and beta readers can accept or decline projects at their own discretion, putting them in complete control of their workload.
Writers can search our database of beta readers by fandom, story length, genre, relationships and beta strengths to find the perfect match for them. If the fandom you are writing for is not currently listed then writers can contact a general beta reader who is willing and able to look over any form of fictional piece and provide a technical critique.
Remember, the site is still growing. If there are no beta readers listed in your desired fandom then check back again later.
I look forward to seeing you there!
