Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have very strong ties to the genres that I beta-read. I am very passionate about taking ideas and forming them into something totally unique and creative. I'm a big fan of words, and I expect them to be chosen carefully. Not that a story has to contain big, impressive words, just that they have to hold meaning to the conversation taking place and they must be relevant. I enjoy communicating with the authors of the stories I beta in order to get a better understanding of the story before editing anything. This helps to ensure that I won't make any pre-mature decisions on what to edit out.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
The arrangement and meaning of words, general grammar and spelling, characterization, relevance of happenings to the general storyline, flow of events in a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Things such as semi-colons, colons, and dashes can get a little shaky for me. Also, it is easy for me to miss the repetition of a word or an overused word within a few paragraphs of each other.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer thoughtful, well-organized fics aimed towards a sixteen-and-up audience. Stories with an underlying meaning towards the original work or life in general is a big plus. If the fic stems from an ongoing series, incorporating your ideas about what will happen with the characters and storylines included in that series always sparks my imagination more than a general fic. I enjoy smut, but not to the point of being overly vulgar. Smut must have relevance to the characters involved.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Comedy-oriented stories. Although there are some amazing authors out there writing this type of fic, humor and parody categories are not my thing.
