|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love bizarre couplings and pairings that would never appear in canon. My account is that of a group of writers dedicated to bringing these pairings to the world! They are usually humorous, odd and original. I am interested in becoming a beta reader for all of you out there that are writing these types of stories, and I hope to make them even better. Editing is something I enjoy doing and hopefully I'll be able to make constructive criticisms to stop works descending into giggly ones with little plot.
I'm interested in one-shots, mainly, as I don't have a great deal of time to work on this. I'm no longer actively writing, so this will be a great way of making a contribution to the site! As I am a lover of odd pairings, I will beta stories others won't, incest, teacher/student, etc. It's all in good fun, right?
I can be critical when I want to be, and I'm blunt and honest, so if you don't wnt your precious story bing examined, I suggest you don't use me as a beta-reader. I will not hold back on criticism to protect people's feelings. However, I will never attack your story or make you change the entire thing, I only give constructive recommendations.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Humour, characterisation (yes, even in my bizarre fics), dialogue and plotting. I do not take things too seriously, but at the same time I hate reading drivel and will not write it!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I will not be able to beta Mature fics, as I find myself getting too embarassed. I will not be able to beta work that isn't in fandoms that I know well. My grammar is improving, but I sometimes miss things such as that/which, etc.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As I've mentioned, stories with odd pairings.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm open to anything, but be prepared for me to turn you down for anything inappropriate, such as character bashing. I don't like alternate universe fics or stories with an OC main character (OCs are ok if not paired with a main character). If I catch a whiff of Mary Sue/Gary Stu I will personally delete the character from the face of the earth.
