Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Let's put this out there right now- I'm harsh. I love beta reading, but if I get something to beta, it will probably come back with a million corrections in red text. I don't expect you to be amazing or anything, but I'd hope that I could at least get through your story without falling asleep. That said, it usually helps if I know the fandom that the fic I'm betaing is for.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at making sure that characters are staying in character (unless the point is to have them be OOC), and that grammar and punctuation is correct.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm really not so good at editting out adjectives- excessive descriptions tickle my fancy, so it takes an effort for me to actually say "No, that's too much, you need to describe less."
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer long stories over one-shots, though I won't turn anything down just because it's not long enough. I tend towards the more psychologically screwed up stuff, depressing stories, character deaths and the like. But I don't also love happy endings, as long as they're not obnoxious.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories that rely heavily on original characters tick me off. The entire point of fanfiction is to be writing about the characters that already exist. However, I understand when original characters are necessary. Plotless smut and mindless fluff also tend to get on my bad side.
