Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I focus mainly on Harry Potter stories along with crossovers into this genre. I'm a yaoi fangirl and that tends to be the type of stories I read. I'd prefer not to beta a story that is het if the pairing is the main focus of the story. I strive to get stories back to authors within three days but this may be longer due to uni work but I will warn you if this is the case. I'm willing to help work on plot development as well. I'm always looking for new genres to read so I am willing to do research on the genre and its characters. I'm also available to beta work on AFF so please try to keep it age appropriate, anything extremely graphic without warnings needs to go to AFF.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at grammar and sentence structuring along with spelling. I am dedicated to seeing a story through to its end and I am shameless when it comes to advertising for others. I am able to find plot holes in stories and help create ways to fill them (or cover them up)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a bit of a procrastinator, though if i'm really interested in the work I will go through it very quickly.
If you want me as a beta-reader be prepared to be pestered when I have time or to recieve messages that any chapter you send me will have a delay (I will get it back to you within a week) as University is time consuming and a priority. Though if you can get me the chapter by 9pm AEST (in America it would be around 4am US Pacific Time Zone).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta stories with slash or no relationships. I'm open to pretty much anything in these stories. I would prefer to beta something the writer is nearly 100% sure that they will continue for as long as they can sustain it without descending into madness. If I have a general outline of where you want to go with the story I can help with ideas and sustaining your muse.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer not to beta anything that involves extreme rape scenarios or detailed torture. If you know in advance that you will have some of this invovled in your story and warn me then I'd be willing to beta still but I don't want to open the story to find such situations without warning. I would also prefer that the rape is not just thrown in as a plot device, rather it has a clarified place in the story and helps to develop the plot (rather than just another thing to make the characters life sad).
