Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I look for originality in writing, not that knock off trend writing. I hate Mary-sue's with a passion. I like a lot of genres, just not the angst. I'm not a grammar fanatic, but I cannot stand terrible grammar. Basically the story has to flow, so if the grammar is tripping me up, then it needs work.

I hate stories that make the characters out of character. If one or two are off, but the rest are fine, then that's okay, but if everyone doesn't act like themselves, then is it really a fan fiction about the said characters?

For the most part I look at the plot of the story. If the plot is crap, the story will be crap.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My originality. I try hard to make sure I don't knock off other peoples' stuff, and I expect that from the stuff I read. Also my ability to come up with decent loop holes in stories.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My grammar skills aren't so hot. They're good enough to let me pass, but I'm no grammar pro. That and sometimes I can be a little too critical. Either that or I'm afraid to be too critical because I don't want to hurt peoples feelings.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Oneshots, spoofs that are thought out and inspired by and idea, stories written by realists.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I avoid yaoi. It makes me blush terribly, so I avoid it. I also stay away from cliche stories, and I will not read angst stuff because I don't need a story to make me depressed.
