Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My style is to understand your style and work with that. I will not impose my style onto yours. Explain to me your ideas in full and if you want me to add to it, I will, if not, I will just work on sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation. It's all up to you; this is YOUR story! :) I have no expectations because I don't believe in them - having them means you will eventually be disappointed. However, if you ask me to beta your story, I will do what I explained above but I won't deal with rudeness, bossiness, or anything negative like that. I have been writing for over 10 years so please trust my knowledge. If you must keep a comma in place when I took it out, by all means keep it in there. I completely understand that I might not be seeing or hearing a certain tone you are and that that's why you don't want to take it out. But work with me, please don't fight with me over anything. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are in overall tone of the story, angst, suspense, dialogue, catching the same word used twice or more in a sentence or paragraph, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure. I am a fan of run-on sentences and sentences that are not complete, and that is because on occasion, they provide more suspense or humor depending on the wording than if it was a full sentence. Usually people don't like those, so if you do, like me, then I am the beta for you.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have been thinking about this section long and hard and I honestly can't say I know what my weaknesses in writing are. I've been broadening my horizons and learning for over ten years, and I used to have big weaknesses but the only thing I can say about my writing now is that I tend to rush my own chapters or rush my writing itself so that it is a little sloppy, but I re-read every chapter of every story about 10 times before I post them, and about 50 times after. I am always going back to fix my old stories. I'm a natural editor. I guess my biggest weakness now is that I tend to take a story that isn't mine and go to change something to my liking, but then I remember that it isn't my story and that I have to talk to the author about it. I talk to the authors about every single detail I change. I would love it if someone I was betareading for pointed out to me something that I do that I'm not aware of. I love learning and I would appreciate it if someone did for me what I do for them :)

The types of stories I prefer vary greatly. Angst, romance, humor, gay straight and everything in between, mature, smutty, fluffy, light, dark, self injury, up beat and happy, I'll even beta for rape and abuse stories. I actually love abuse stories (if they have happy endings of course) because they have so much potential to be great stories, and angst and darkness are fun to write/read.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please don't even ask me if I will read a Snape/Harry romantic pairing. I don't like stories that end horrifically where everyone dies or things like that, I don't like rape/abuse stories that end badly, etc. I will read and beta a rape/abuse/self injury/etc. story in which the person dies as long as it is well thought out and not immaturely written. I'll absolutely help you make it so, I just prefer those kinds of stories to end happily. I have a story where the person dies though so I am willing to help you with yours.
