Name: Danielle

Email: DaNNi4JoNNy@aol.com

Specialty: Being English, one of my main strengths is Spike characterization and dialogue. I'd love to help with any slang, endearments or historical issues you're having with him. I can also do *general* proof reading (although don't ask me about anything too specific - arghh!) and plot continuity. And I'd love to just have a chat about your fic if you want it, as well. I'm doing English Language, English Lit and History A Levels, so I should be helpful in some way :)

Time Available: A few hours a day. It varies. EMail and I'll let you know how it stands.

Ratings: Anything, but no PWP. I like smut if there's a plot and a build up, but PWP is tedious.

Preferred Character(s): I love Willow and Angel fluff. I also adore Spike in any way, shape or form. I love both Xander and Buffy, so no bashing of them! It's okay if you don't like Dawn though, I'm with you on that one ;) No Cordelia/Angel stuff. Yuck. But Fred's a sweetie, although I don't like her in the romance way. No femslash and I prefer any S/A slash to be light and not too graphic... it gets icky otherwise. I'll consider most pairings but Willow, Spike and Angel are my favourite characters. I also love OC's. But make sure you check if you're doing a cross over, so I can say whether I've seen/read it.
