Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My interests include: just about anything, with a penchant for sci-fi, fantasy and mystery. I especially like deadpan, off-the-cuff and dark humour, though more traditional styles can often tickle my fancy. My least favourite thing is Mary Sue (and don't even start of a philosophical/literary debate on what constitutes a Mary Sue, we'll be here all day) Characters. This is not to be confused with Original Characters, which (by definition) can actually be original and interesting. Also, being an Australian, don't confuse my (correct) spelling of things like "armour" and "analyse" as mistakes. If you require me to spell-check in a particular dialect of English, you might want to mention it as I'm just as likely to not even take it into consideration otherwise.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spell checking. Grammar checking. Dialogue checking. Hip checking.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Willingness to leave well-enough alone: If I'm absolutely sure something needs to be changed but can't figure out how to improve it, I'll give up after a while (possibly with a footnote).

Abuse the grammar: I have been accused (by myself) of over-using commas, among other things.

Excess Enthusiasm: May, under the right circumstances, subtly re-write the whole thing as a "suggestion." May lead to time wasted, in excess of expectations.

"Your Excellency": May come across as abrupt, rude or condescending. I assure you that this is (almost) certainly unintentional.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anime series of which I am familiar. No list is available, chances are good that I will have seen it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi. I could probably read it, but I wouldn't enjoy it.
