Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been writing everything for as long as I can remember, and I'm obsessed with grammar and spelling, and have been told I have a unique writing voice. I am more than happy to correct or read over grammar and spelling for anyone, or to give feedback/some criticism. I focus more on making the story believable, writing in character, and creating a well-rounded story. If you ask for my help, expect me to be honest. Not brutal, but honest.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at writing romance/dramas and family stories, and I really love writing old literature into my stories, such as Shakespeare and some mythology. I believe the more you read, the better you are at being a writer. My strengths definitely lie in grammar and spelling errors, though when I first read a story, especially a FF, I look for how believable the characters are and how well the situation is developed. I love AUs, but keep it in character.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I like Angst stories and sometimes the occasional horror, but I'm not very good at writing them. I would like to get better, because not all stories have happy endings (even though I want them to).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories on subjects that I've authored are preferred, but I would never turn down someone who needs help grammatically or who needs feedback on the story in general. For my familiar subjects, I love original pairings, though I'm beginning to read others. Though it feels childish, I love a good sickness/injury story. Suspense is the best addition to a story, in my opinion. However, I'll read just about anything, and I love expanding my horizons. I have recently really enjoyed reading AUs-something I tended to turn down when I first started out on the site.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There are some subjects that have just been beat to death, especially science fiction and OCs. But I admire authors who put an old twist on popular subjects; I love to be proven wrong about those. I'm not big into people who drag characters out of character. That's the point of FanFiction: to use other characters and some part of their world to create your own story. I'm also not into slash, and I like citrus as long as it's tasteful. Don't pass me any porn.
