|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Ello there, Queenie B at your service...
For those that feel the need to know, I am a big girl. I am finishing up my senior year of college, but already I am taking on significant roles in commercials and movies (woot for animation majors!). So what does that mean? Storytelling is my profession and I take it very seriously. As such, you can expect me to be quite thorough if I beta your stories.
I find myself to be quite open; so as long as I am not checking for canon elements, I am more than willing to read what you send my way. Granted, stories falling within my own personal knowledge base get priority. I check for cohesion of plot, characters, and events so that your story flows nicely and doesn't have your reader asking, "What the hell just happened?!" Last but not least, the obvious...grammar, diction, and pacing. Oh...and before I forget, I read all sexualities: yaoi, yuri, and het...or slash and femslash for those who go by that.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization/plot are my major strengths. Queenie B is a character/concept artist and director in real life, so I tend to be overly critical of these two areas. Spelling is another big thing; I will put your story through multiple word processors to check the spelling to make sure it is accurate (as wells checking it myself through various readings).
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If you have a writing style that rivals the Gods of literature, there is a good chance that I will be blinded by your brilliance and overlook the majority of your errors. In such a situation, your grammar would have to be impeccable, your diction to die for, and pacing amazing! Think your that great writer I am talking about? Send your stuff my way so I can have fun reading it, but don't expect much criticism because I'll be off somewhere drooling.
Grammar is another weakness of mine. I know the rules, but I feel that they can be broken from time to time if it helps with the overall story telling experience. So while I will check for it, don't expect me to be overly judgmental of it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Queenie is your typical woman, and is a real sucker for romance! However, I don't want to a read a story that is nothing but mush...because you'll hate me for tearing it a new asshole. Action? Heck yes! Drama? Bring it! Suspence? I will love you until the end of time!
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If you hand me a script (a fic that is NOTHING but dialogue), I won't read it. What else can't I wrap my brain around? Mpreg, rape, incest, Twilight, Harry Potter, Naruto....that sort of thing. Also, Queenie doesn't want your OVERLY angsty teen dramas were you cut yourself because nobody loves/understands/notices you. I have no sympathy for you emo babies in real life, and I sure as hell won't in a story.
