Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a college student and sometime-camp counselor, so I have to balance betareading with the necessary studying and such. I am a grammar nut and have conducted illicit love affairs with the comma, the semi-colon, and the dash at different points in my writing. As long as you understand that my essays for my university classes must come before stories I betaread, you're more than welcome to request my help! Even with other obligations, I should be more than prompt.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am generally quite skilled with grammar, up to and including old fashioned rules like not ending sentences in prepositions. I was born and raised in the south of the US of A, so I can write a fairly decent Southern accent without an overabundance of "y'all." I'm better at dialog than description, and I'm generally good at adding humor where needed. Also, if I know the fandom, I can generally help keep everyone in character.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can sometimes be too wordy in my writing and too helpful in my suggestions. I do more than just check for basic comma usage and spelling errors--if I think a sentence would sound better worded some other way, I'll re-write the sentence in my comment so that you have the option of using that sentence or not. I am not for those who take every correction as some sort of insult or negative comment on their writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer comedies to tragedies, romances to smut, long works to short, and slash pairings to straight, but I read everything, and I would be honored to betaread anything that you'd like me to! Of course, I prefer familiar fandoms, but if you're not sure if I've read something or not, please just shoot me an e-mail and ask!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am, as a general rule, highly critical of made up characters. I will gladly read stories with made-ups in them, but I will criticize them relentlessly until they seem realistic.

Also, I cannot stand mpreg or incest. I don't generally like truly dark rape, abuse, or self-harm fics, but if you promise me a happy ending, I'll stick it out with you until that end.

I don't watch much anime. Most of what I know about anime, I learned from my sister.
