Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I pretty much expect you to give me something to work with.

Don't get me wrong, I'm more than willing to toss around ideas with you if you're not quite sure how to do a certain scene or how to move things along, but YOU have to write the story. You need at least some inkling of what it's going to be about. Because I'm not that good with plots. Lol.

Also, I need at least a sample chapter from you. So that I can decide whether I like it enough to Beta it. :)

I'm a picky one aren't I?

I'm also painfully honest. Though not unnecessarily brutal... I hope... :D

Also- if you're like me and need a nagging Beta who reminds you to write... Nope. I need someone to nag ME dammit! =))

Also, depending on how hectic my College schedule gets I will need at least 2-4 days to beta a piece properly.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Definitely my strongest suit is spelling and grammar. I pick those babies up like... chocolate! :D

I am also a scientist, so I'm good for tossing around ideas with and making sure that everything that happens makes logical sense. Oh, and I love researching. Especially miscellaneous characters.

I write rather creative descriptions.

I have a lot of experience. I have edited 2 magazines, one newspaper and countless O-Level and A-Level essays. I am rather new to fanfiction, so I've only beta read about 2 stories.

I also have my AS-Level Language and Literature qualification.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Paragraphs! I can not paraphrase to save my life! :(
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that are darker, and portray characters as humans, with both good and bad in them.

I don't mind whether it's het or slash, but preferably it must be a more miscellaneous pairing.

Oh, and only very rarely do I read romance.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Soppy, cliche romances (though there ARE some exceptions. I AM a girl after all...)

Plotless things where certain characters are glorified and others dissed.

Hm, yup. Other than that- if your story catches my attention, I will beta it to the best of my abilities.
