Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I haven't betaed here before, but I proofread and edit for my friends at school all the time. I'll read anything. I only expect and/or ask that there be at least the barest hint of plot. And if english isn't your first language, let me know so I can spot cultural references that some people might not understand or that aren't clear. I want to help make FF even more awesome!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel with grammar and spelling. That is my strongest point. I'm very intrigued by culture, so I'm likely to notice/understand culture-based sujects or references. I'm good with complicated plots and ideas, and can understand them easily and quickly. I also like to edit, and I love to analyze character development. I can recognize when something is simply the style of the author and not a typo or grammar fail.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be easily frustrated by repetitive pronouns and overuse of names. I also tend to be a perfectionist, so I apologize if I offend by overdoing it. I read quickly, so a slow moving story (not always a bad thing, mind you) will take a bit longer for me to beta.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love AU stories. They challenge the author to really develop characters and plots, rather than just insert their own char into the original story. It is also an amazing way to dive into the characters and explore the reasons and events that made them who they are. I like lemons and things like that, so no shyness there. I also absolutely adore explicit detail, from happy ten-paragraph descriptions of trees to the most gory happenings ever imagined. I like just plain gore, too. I's good when things are scientifically accurate and plausible. This doesn't mean you have to stick to the real world. I swoon over the supernatural. Just get your facts straight and be consistent with them. I find dialects interesting as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not too fond of outrageous crossovers. I don't read anything that is more than a three way crossover. Otherwise, I'm game for anything.
