Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi,

I have been reading novels since I was 7 as such, I have comprehensive knowledge of many canons from novels, movies and TV shows. I'll do canonical works, AU or crossovers, I'm like a fanfiction whore. As a critic of someone else's work I can become a critical, neurotic obsessive nightmare, but it'll be okay, because all my suggestions will have proper reasoning or solid research. I would never make changes without approval even if the details don't fit into the canonical work. For all I know you could have decided to make it slightly AU to suit your plot line, but of course it will be mentioned in case it was unintentional or else what is the point of editing if not to go over everything with a fine toothed comb? If you are adamant about a certain point like sticking to the purity of the novels or something my neuroticism will help you however my obsessive compulsive personality might delay it slightly as I chase a line of research. Furthermore i will most likely be keeping a log or progress as well as a fact sheet or profile for your story for referencing purposes of course, wouldnt want discrepancies. I love my knowledge.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I will sip from my teacup with my pinky and nose in the air and say: I'm quite good at consistency, mood and tone if I do say so myself. I'm a sesquipedalion you see, I could also use the term verbose or even more common, flowery language. My ability to create an precise image, evoke emotions and set the scene through words have also been commended. If grammar, punctuation and spelling were Germany then I'd be Hitler - basically the grammar nazi.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can just as easily edit emotional scenes as well as action driven sequences, however I have issues expressing action sequences as I tend more towards the melodramatic, I have ideas I just don't know how to express them, a similar situation occurs when confronted with dialogue. I also get distracted easily, in an almost magpie-like manner so sometimes I may take a little longer in getting back because I've been caught on a train of thought, creativity, research etc.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would probably get through it faster if it were emotion driven, fantasy, scifi, speculative, historical, crime or mystery. Otherwise I'm open! Hit me! Again! Harder! Ahem, anyway...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Overall I quite like tea, all kinds of it. Even the dark sided ones because we all have a dark side even if mine might be slightly more deviant. But please do have some direction to the story or discuss it with me, I'll be happy to help, I just like to know things even if they are only set in clay instead of stone.
