Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a BETA I prefer to work in fandoms I am familiar with: Due South, X-Men (Evolution and Movie Verse primarily), Supernatural, Battlestar Galactica, Dark Angel, Chronicles of Riddick, Harry Potter, Sky High, Torchwood, New Doctor Who, New Star Trek, Highlander the Series, Buffy, Angel and Tin Man.br /

br /

I don't work well with OCs, because I have become allergic to Mary Sues. If you want to see if your OFC reads like a Sue, give me a call :)br /

br /

I enjoy world building and mood setting and I like to correct spelling and grammar and at the same time explain the corrections to prevent future mistakes. br /

br /

I expect you as a writer to be able to take criticism in the spirit it was meant. Please be mature about it or don't ask for at beta, right? br /

br /

I look forward to working with you and supporting your vision! :)br /

br /

Lotsa love, people!br /

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a Danish English major and my speciality is spelling and general characterisation. I do mostly British English. I like to 'paint word pictures', so I am very happy to read for style as well. I'm good at spotting prose that is too purple and dialogue that doesn't sound natural. br /

br /

I am also very good at telling the difference between words that sound alike, but are not the same: there, they're, their etc.br /

br /

I am also very good at tenses.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have very little patience for OFCs. I am not too good with punctuation, but passable. I'm not good with Brit-picking or Americanising.
