*waves madly from the South Pacific*
Hi, I'm Allie. I never know what to write in these things.
Hello everyone! I am a 25 year old nanny and plan on starting school in the summer. I love my job, am obsessed with Harry Potter and fanfiction. It is one of my great loves! :)
Hi! I discovered PhoenixSong in early 2004 and was accepted as a beta in October that same year. I'm the mother of a ten-year-old who is as enamored with Harry Potter as his mother is; he loves all seven movies, expecially Order of the Phoenix and the action scenes in Deathly Hallows Part 1. We've read the first three books together and have had fun talking about how different the books are from the movies.
All of my stories are published here at PS and I've made some wonderful on-line friends through the authors I've been given. I love being a beta and getting to read new chapters as they are finished; the process of helping an author make a chapter the best it can be is really exciting for me. I hope you'll find the time to read the stories of Bear, GovCampbell, KEDme, Wings, Helion, Cryslin, RIPHedwig, GhostWriter, Jedi34, RSS, SilverPhoenix, HermioneWeasley1972, and Sassenach, all of whom I am honored to have on my Author list.
I'm Bronte, the name comes from my real name, Bronwyn, combined with the Brontesaurus and not the writing sisters, (It's Bron-tee not Bron-tay).
I discoverd HP canon at University in 2000 when I was meant to be studying for exams - oops - I read the first two in a couple of days, studying for 15 minutes then picking up an HP for 5 minutes (OK longer. But who's timing anyway, I couldn't put them down)
I discovered HP fanfic mid-2004 when I had a deadly boring job and was trawling the internet looking for a little intellectual stimulation. A year later I volunteered as a beta and about a month after that was hit with a plot bunny for my first story.
I'm a Kiwi living in the UK (waves frantically at AllieKiwi back home), doing a research Masters. I have one completed multi-chapter and one WIP that should really be labelled as On Hiatus, currently on PS.net and I am 8 chapters through a 10 chapter story that I hope to finish and post soon. I beta for mbwun5, Delfino, JediWeasley and Chatmandu.
I'm KC, a 30-something American who divides his fanaticism between sports and Harry Potter. I've been on the beta team here at PS from the beginning and I've been lucky enough to work with a number of extremely talented authors from all over the world. I'm also a PS keeper and I've dabbled in writing fanfiction, though the latter I've more or less given up as a lost cause.
Hi! I go by FreeDaChickens, and I'm very happy to join PhoenixSong. I was introduced to here through PerfectImagination and decided to become a beta for PS. I'm looking forward to working with everyone here!
Hello to all from the east coast of the States!
My name is Mari, and I'm a 30 year old Harry Potter addict, a beta and a mod here at PS. After watching the movies like a faithful movie-goer for a few years, I finally grabbed all six books in the summer of 2005 (backwards, I know, but better late than never!) and read them like a fiend! I plowed through them all inside of a month and haven't looked back since.
I've since discovered the wonderful world of fanfic and ships (bless my H/G beating heart), and now find myself here at the Song, ready to beta my little heart out for some of you wonderful authors! I've got a bachelor's degree in English, and it has been far too long since I've been able to put it to good use. I look forward to meeting you in the very near future!
"Better wizards than you have lost buttocks, you know!" -- Mad-Eye Moody
I've been reading fanfiction for a few years now and I wanted to do a bit more.
Short CV... I'm 37, got a university degree in engineering somewhere on the way, work in industrial R&D and enjoy playing the clarinet in a symphonic wind orchestra. I try to keep my English as British as possible but my native language is... French!
Don't be (too) afraid: I'm accredited by perfectimagination so my English shouldn't be that bad... And I implore you: just ask if you're not sure when writing something that's supposed to be French... avant d'ecrire de trop grosses betises... ;-)
And last but not least, my German-speaking girlfriend would say I'm a big kid so don't say you've not been warned!
I'm very excited to have officially joined up with Phoenix Song at long last! I'm fairly new to Phoenix Song (only been a member for less than two years), but definitely not new to the fandom! I have been doing pre-beta work for more than four years as well as beta read for Checkmated. My all-time favorite story to work on was The Promise Ring by the White Lily. An amazing pre-OotP read that I still highly recommend! ;)
More personally speaking, I am a Michigan native, even though I seem to use a lot of British phrases and spellings from time to time. Hee, hee. This is my 2nd year teaching kindergarten so I also tend to use very short and simple words. :) The discovery that college definitely did not prepare me for Real Life whatsoever has been difficult, but I'm hoping this year will be better than last. Cross your fingers for me! :)
8/6/07 ~ I have wrestled with the decision for a long time, but have decided to "retire" from beta reading. Thank you so much for many hours/days/years of reading pleasure! I may pick up a story from time to time as it's never easy to leave something completely behind you. ;-)
Hi, I'm Jner! **waves happily** I'm lucky enough to have been with PS.net from its birth (Yay!). Real life has me teaching the Deaf and going to school part time. I love being a part of this community and am grateful for the chance to meet such wonderful writers and fellow H/Gers. Happy reading, everyone!
I'm a Marauder Era Potter fan, English teacher, wife, and mother of four. I love literature, art, and music. I "came out of the closet" and joined the fandom openly after I became a cancer survivor: I decided life was too much of a gift to let the opinions of others keep me from having fun. In addition to JKRowling, I'm a big lover of all things written by Jane Austen, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Orson Scott Card, William Shakespeare, CS Forester, and Barbara Kingsolver. I also love Yaya sisterhood books and Travelling Pants books. While we're at it--favorite Austen books? Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. Favorite LM Montgomery books? the Anne series and The Blue Castle. Favorite Card books? The Ender series and Enchantment. Favorite Bard plays? Much Ado About Nothing, Henry IV, Hamlet, Tempest. (but I love all the comedies) Favorite Forester Hornblower book? Beat to Quarters. Favorite Kingsolver book? Prodigal Summer
My name is LadyChi. I'm a music education major at Kansas State University. I love to read and play the piano and talk to people... Oh and sleep, that's one of my favorites.
Hi! I'm lucyjekyll, aka Lucy. I'm proud to be member #11 of Phoenix Song, which tells you how long I've been around. I'm also the beta for the "Three-Word Story," which tells you something about my sanity or lack thereof. I'm a Harry/Ginny shipper through and through.
Hello, hello, hello!
I am the ever-fabulous Molly-Weasley...well, no I'm just Molly-Weasley.
I love to read, write and beta fanfiction...although this is not my pen name...that shall remain uber-sekrit, you know? Hehehe
My OTP is Harry and Ginny
Ron and Hermione rank right up there, too.
In a nutshell, I'm a bike riding, Nascar watching, chocolate loving, Harry Potter addicted, mother of two.
*waves hi* I'm OHGinnyfan, aka Susan, and I'm one of the Admins here at PhoenixSong in addition to an author and beta. I currently work with three authors - Gridley, Aggiebell, Zahri Seb Melitor and harry_ginnyphile - in addition to pre-betaing for a ton of others. I'm the mum of four boys who are the reason I'm hooked on Harry. I'm also a research microbiologist in my real life.
Howdy, ya'll! I'm Rinna. I enjoy writing, college football, my puppies, and of course, beta reading. ;) I have 14 WONDERFUL authors, who are all ridiculously talented. I'm originally from NOLA, but have been living in Arkansas for the last decade. (Wooo Pig Sooie!) I love to chat, so drop me a line any time. *hugs*
Wow. I beta for several people. Seems like I don't write as much, but I enjoy editing almost as much as writing. I love to help people craft stories. I can be a very good Grammarian, but am best at plot development (bunny making) and with crossovers. Real Life intrudes a lot, but I am known as a quick editor.
Looking forward to editing with you!
I like writing, reading, and everything in between (which is where betaing falls, I suppose). The best way to become my friend is with baked goods.
31 year old fan of HP and other types of fan fiction. Between work and helping my wife with our sons.
I began lurking in the HP Fandom while waiting for Order of the Phoenix to be published. I fell in love with Harry Potter (well, the Weasley Twins, really) while nearing the birth of my third child. I read all four books (at the time) in under two weeks and was really upset that book five wasn't ready yet. While I was chomping at the bit for more canon, I found The Harry Potter Lexicon which lead me to fanfiction to save my sanity.
I love a well written story. But, it was painful to hack through much of the posted works on unbeta'd sites looking for the gems. I struck the motherload on PS. Restored my faith in humanity a fair bit. ;) I love knowing that I've an excellent chance of being entranced by anything I care to read here.
I'm proud to be one of the betas now that helps maintain that atmosphere for others. My authors include Ladybug, Misselthwaite, Embates and DancinginMagic. I prebeta for Sugarquills23 and on occasion Kelleypen & Katieay. Brilliant writers all.
Hi, My name is Tiffany aka xphoenixfirex. I am a 30 year old WAHM of 4 girls aged 14, 11, 6, and 6 months. I have been married to my awesome hubby for 7 years. Thanks to my oldest, I got addicted to the world of HP. I'm still pretty new to the fanfic world, but I love to read it and hope to write as well. I also love to read Stephen King, Anne Rice and Kurt Vonnegaut.
