110% Free Proofreader+Editor+Ideabouncer! (OPEN!)

#1 Post by AntiquedFae » Sat Jun 24, 2017 5:56 pm

Hello There!

I’m AntiquedFae, an avid reader and long-time VN fan eager to find a project (or two or three) to work on!


I offer proofreading, editing and ideabouncing, all for free! I have worked mainly for OokamiKasumi and Googaboga on these forums, but I’m looking for some new projects to work on as I have a fair bit of free time. If you’d like a more detailed list of what I’ve done on different games, just let me know and I will be happy to oblige!
Since I work for free, I do come with a few stipulations.
First of all, a disclaimer: I’m not formally trained or educated for proofreading work. So while I will do my absolute best to make your script as sparklingly clean as possible, I am not a professional and will make mistakes from time to time.

Secondly, I am happy to work on a project in as small or large of a capacity as you need me to, within my skills of course. Be it just a one-time ideabouncing session for a certain character trait you need help developing or a long-term support role on a larger project, I am here to help!

Third, since I proofread as a hobby I’m only looking to work on games that appeal to me personally.

To save us both time, here’s the stuff I’m likely to say ‘no’ to:
-Sexy stuff. Hentai, ecchi, fanservice, etc.. Nudity is not really something I’m comfortable with. If there’s a part that is necessary to your story because of character development/plot progression or something of the sort then let me know!

-Heavy, front and centre GxG or BxB. If purely same gender romance is a main component of your story that you want help with, I probably wouldn’t be the proofreader you’re looking for. I'd still be thrilled to work on other aspects of your game! And if it’s a lighter amount/type of content I typically have no trouble with it, especially when ideabouncing. Optional or side romances are okay, as are games with a protagonist gender choice! I do make some exceptions to this so contact me if you're unsure!

-Harems or poly-relationships. If it’s easily avoidable then I have no problem with doing the routes without it.

-Due to medical reasons, I cannot play games which require fast reflexes, have flashing, flickering or static effects or have jumpscares. I am still happy to go over scripts though!

Now that the painful part is over with, onto-
Genres and features I especially like:

-Supernatural/Paranormal

-Fantasy

-History, from all different parts of the world

-Mystery. It’s an incredibly difficult genre to write, but if you do it right I will love you.

-Introverted, logical MCs. I really love stories from the perspective of MCs that observe and think.

-Friendship. Games with the option to befriend characters or get to know them in ways other than romantically is something I’m very interested in!

-Halloween. For lack of a better wording, everything and anything monster and spooky is totally my thing. If the paranormal point did not already display this…

-Nature, plants and gardening. I am a plant nerd.

-Crafting gameplay. Of pretty much any sort!

-Stat raising.

-Disabled, neurologically divergent, medically ill and/or characters with a generally unique or unusual perspective on the world are all of massive interest to me!


And the fine print sort of things:

-I reserve the right to choose not to work on any game, for any reason.
-I communicate via PM here on lemmasoft and/or via email.
-I am a native English speaker who is familiar with both American and British/Commonwealth English.
-I am fairly flexible in my proofreading format. We can figure out something that works for us both.
-I am generally very communicative and respond quickly, usually within a few hours.
-I am a very fast reader.
-These last two points being said, I have a pretty bad chronic health condition which can cause me to be unable to do much for some short periods. Usually I am feeling plenty well enough to proofread even when it hits, but if I get a really bad spell I might not be able to work for three days, max. Should this occur I will do my absolute best to let you know so you can proceed accordingly! I hope you understand!
-If I am not accepting new projects, I will edit the forum title to say 'closed'. If 'closed' isn't in the title, then that means I am OPEN! I am quite fussy about keeping that updated.
-My rate is the same for both commercial and free projects: all free! Of course, if you are able to and want to compensate me somehow, be it a trade, monetary payment or something else, let's say, bunny plushies or artisanal bread, I am beyond flattered and would be happy to discuss that with you. That's just an extra bonus gift in my eyes though: my services are free.

I look forward to hearing from you, either in reply to this forum or through PM! Thank you greatly for reading! ^_^

Edited my message slightly just to clarify one thing. None of the projects I've been contacted about have worked out so far, so I'm still wide open! :D

At long last, I am done moving (I never want to unpack another box again) which means...*trumpeting* I am open once more to help with proofreading, idea-bouncing and editing for games! Free as ever!

Hm, that's an interesting question. I laid my interests out in the original post pretty well honestly (probably a bit too well...overly specific much?) but if I was going to magically design my own dream game for me to proofread...it would probably be a strange sort of Harvest Moon-ish/VN hybrid set in the north with expansive skill-based gameplay, unique plus diverse characters, a MASSIVE map to explore, and loads of mysteries to uncover, along with a supernatural/fantasy side. That would be a dream come true!

...Like I said, magically designed overly-specific dream game that will probably never ever happen. But I can still dream! One day...maybe it will be real! I'm highly interested in anything that I mention in my original post as liking though! :D Mystery! Fantasy! Crafting! Paranormal! Halloween! Plants! Friendship! Disabled characters! Cookies!...Oh no, wait, not that last one. I'm just craving baking. Though if you have a baking game, I would also love to work on that!

Once upon a time there was a mysterious, fantastical, craftsy Ghost, living on his own in an apartment. He loved his plants for dear life, and they were his only friends in the whole wide world. One day, the oven exploded with a large ricochet, the cookies he had baked were done, yet... he had not put them on. Why, you ask? He was dead, of course!

Tweaked the wording of my post to clarify a bit more about what I'm willing to take on! I have two lovely projects I'm helping out with now, but still have loads of free time (ah, that bedbound life) so I'm totally open to taking on new projects! ^_^

I apologize for the double post (especially when I'm the thread creator...) but it seems I have to state something:

I do not offer writing services.

I have been contacted twice now asking for writing, despite my never having offered it. Please note that as it says in the thread title, I only offer editing, proofreading and ideabouncing services. If you need any of these I will be ~thrilled~ to work with you! But if it's a writer you're looking for, you have come to the wrong place.

Unless you're looking for an amateur freeform poet who writes about illness, otherworldly beings and trees. If so then heeeey, I guess you have come to the right place!

Anyways, I'm open for proofreading, editing and ideabouncing. Even if you aren't sure if your project will suit my interests, the absolute worst I can do is say no! The absolute best I can do is fall in love with your work and become your proofreader best friend for life. It never hurts to ask! ^_^

Lmao okay lemmasoft logged me out when I typed my review for Antiquedfae's proofreading service and now I have to type everything again orz..

I contacted Antiquedfae around two weeks ago to proofread my visual novel script, and I must say that I had a blast working with her! She's easy to contact, a very nice person, and she works super fast. It only took a day for her to finish the job even though I told her to take it easy haha. I also really enjoyed our discussion and they made me realized some flaws in my story/script that were invisible to me before. 10/10 will collaborate with her again in the future! Thank you so much Fae! If you need something from me, you know where to find me! <3<3
