Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So, I thought I'd have a go at beta reading. I've beta read for several friends, but mostly it was small things that required brief grammar and spelling checks, nothing too formal. I don't have a particular style because it tends to vary depending on the nature of the fic, so I can do cute, humorous fics, dark angsty ones and romantic plotlines (I write&read fluff, but I see fluff as subtle little things so I'm not a roses-and-chocolates-and-fairies kind of person). I should also mention that I write in British English, so if I mess up with an Americanism you'll have to excuse me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have excellent spelling and grammar, but please bear in mind that I am only human and will most likely make one or two mistakes. Additionally, I have a keen eye for metaphors and imagery so if this is something you write or want to introduce, I can help you with that. I know when something is OOC and will bluntly tell you so if I think this is case.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As I said I do occasionally miss things, but this is mostly in my own writing so I tend to scan it. In other people's writing I'm more meticulous in my reading. I am very critical of works and I'll be quite to the point with you if I think you're going wrong, so try not to be too sensitive or take it too personally.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd much prefer yaoi over anything. I'm not bothered about genre because I write most anyway. I'll beta lemons and limes too, I'm not squeamish over it at all really.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Het and yuri are not things I'm good at. I don't read or write it so I'm not very familiar with the nature of these fics, as well as this I won't be all that knowledgeable on the dynamics. I also don't do rape, shouta or anything of that nature, don't even ask me. OCs, Sues/Stus and self-inserts are a no-no too, unless they're just plot devices or something insignificant like that.
