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!
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.
-Heavy, front and centre GxG or BxB. If purely same gender romance is the 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 exceptions to this so contact me!
-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:
-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!
-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, discord if requested 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.
