|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, bonjour, salvete, mae govannen, etc. I'm Undying Mongoose, formerly CentaurGirl42, but you can call me...um, pretty much anything you want. I don't have a nickname yet. I am both a long-time fanfiction writer and an agent of the PPC (under the name Agent Tomato) and have consistently gotten high A's in English through high school. I am happy to provide links to my PPC missions on request, as those are not hosted here.
As far as my style goes, I tend to nitpick over little things, but I try to be as polite as possible when doing so. I never give criticism without suggesting a way of fixing the problem.
I expect that you have at least run your fic through spellcheck before sending it to me. I also expect that you have run your original characters, if any, through a Mary-Sue Litmus Test. (I can give you a link, if you want one.) Show me that you've put some effort into your story. Oh, and I expect you're familiar with the canon.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Canon details, grammar and spelling, languages (Latin, French, and Sindarin), dialogue. I am unmerciful when it comes to Mary-Sues.
I am up-to-date on the current series of Doctor Who, and have extensive knowledge of Classic Who (particularly the Fifth and Seventh Doctors). I have read the Silmarillion.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Britpicking (I'm American), any languages not listed above, serious romance
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm particularly fond of anything with a complicated plot, but I'll beta oneshots too. I'm fine with slash and femslash as well as het and gen, though I prefer there to be a point to the plot besides the romance.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Graphic sex or PWP, high school AUs, crossovers, incest
