Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have no real issues over content, I enjoy most stuff from your standard romance to the edgy and provocative. I'm ready to help with plot, structure and maybe research if you catch me at a good time. I'm not looking to be a spellchecker and would expect you to be sure of your spelling before anything came my way. I'll give whatever you've got a try. If I think that it's poor you can expect me to give you a lot of criticism and a fair amount of back and forth until I feel it's ready.

Try to catch me during the weekend, that's the only time I can be sure to work quickly until I get my own computer.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, plot, fluency, pacing and structure. In terms of genre, Comedy seems to be my main strength, although I have been known to pull out some angst once in a while.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do have a degree of self doubt that can interfere occasionally. I would suggest that romance is a weak spot, at times I can have all the subtlety of a hand grenade and I enjoy a certain amount of absurdity when I go for metaphors and similes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll go for anything really, so long as it's iCarly. I can beta for FF7 but it's been some time since I read any FF7 fics or played through it. I have no preferences over ships, so long as it's a good story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't read anything that's short (800 words would be my lowest limit) nor anything riddled with spelling mistakes. A couple of typos are forgivable but most word processor's have spellcheckers and they can do it. I don't want to read plotless lemons or straight up snuff fics, what I want is a good plot, not someone's fantasies.
