Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Grammar, spelling and vocabulary are things I tend to think myself rather good at - I'm studying English at university where these are essential skills to have! I tend to be a gentle but firm corrector; I won't be harsh but I'll be insistent! I don't believe in criticising any writer, regardless of skill - it's the thought and the effort that counts in the end, but if I can help in any way, I'm glad.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I said, grammar, spelling and vocabulary are my forte! If I don't know the answer, I have a charmingly big dictionary and thesaraus right beside me to help out. Punctuation is also something I'm all too happy to point out, if needs be. If you're writing in a fandom I know, chances are I'll have a very good idea of the characters and the story and will therefore also be able to give advice in those areas.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be patient, but if someone doesn't take the advice I give or isn't willing to listen to it, I'll get pretty worked up. I also have to admit that I expect a certain standard from a fic before I even go anywhere near it with my big red marker - it doesn't have to be a masterpiece or anything, but a certain skill should be there nevertheless.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy romance fics, or at least fics with an element of romance in them, even if they are action, adventure, mustery etc. I'd be most familiar with Star Wars, Doctor Who, Pokémon, Torchwood, Clannad, Kanon 2006, and Ouran High School Host Club. I read and write yaoi, so I am open to M-rated fics, both yaoi and yuri (to a lesser extent) as long as they aren't too... shall we say kinky?
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer staying within the fandoms I know, those mentioned here and in my profile, simply because I would be reluctant to potentially make mistakes in my correcting because I'm unfamiliar with the fandom.
