As a college graduate and English major who has always dreamed of being a full-time editor, I’ve done plenty of proofreading and editing to my own work as well as helping others. As a start to my professional portfolio as well as to showcase examples of my work, I am going to keep a list of work that I have proofread/edited here.
My current dA username is BloodrainFireDawn, and the username I used in the past was jadesfires; most writers are courteous enough to mention that I helped them in the artist description of the story.
I have obtained permission from a writer with whom I have an ongoing arrangement to provide links to the stories that I have helped her proofread/edit. Thank you very much, Réalta! I will list the stories separately below, but you can find her at deviantART under the username Star-Chaster. Her other work not listed here can be found in her dA gallery.
EDIT (as of 12/4/12): I have also obtained the permission of another writer who I have helped to provide a link to the first chapter of her story which I both proofread and edited extensively. Thanks, Asia! You can find her at deviantART under the username Solangetatsu. She is an artist as well as a writer, and all of her artwork and writing can be found in her dA gallery.
EDIT (as of 12/19/12): I have obtained permission from another writer to provide a link to the chapters of her story which I helped edit; this is an example of development editing. Thanks, Erin! You can find her at deviantART under the username ErinM31. She is also a writer and artist, and all of her artwork and other writing can be found in her dA gallery.

either proofread or edited by me.*
