Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an extremely open-minded person, and I will do everything I possibly can to help you make your story the best it can be. However, I must require that the story be in a traditional story format. Nothing formatted as a script. Also, I am not here to write your story for you, so I expect stories to be fairly well completed, aside from minor grammatical issues. Furthermore, I prefer stories that do not require a code. You know, when a story starts with "Boldcharacter's thoughts; italicsnarrator, etc." I'm kind of a snob about those kinds of things. I also tend to decline crossover fics and stories heavily featuring OCs.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Because my approach to writing is more character-driven than plot-driven (read: I write a lot of PWP), I place a very strong emphasis on accurate characterization through dialogue and actions. Staying true to the characters is easily of my greatest strengths as a writer. I get a lot of positive feedback for the way that I write dialogue in particular. I am also very good at writing smut. Gratuitous smut. Angsty gratuitous smut. That sometimes is very funny. But mostly is just soul crushing. And graphic.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to just jump into stories, and I sometimes struggle with expositions, so I won't be a huge help in getting your story jump-started.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am comfortable with beta-ing explicit/M-rated fics (in fact, I prefer them). I tend to write m/m smut, but I'll beta almost any kind of smut (exceptions listed below). As I mentioned before, I enjoy violence as much as I do pr0n, so I would love to get my hands on some works that contain either or both. I am okay with most different kinks, as long as I am familiar enough with the kink to write comfortably about it. I prefer the more raw, blunt, passionate stories, as opposed to the fluffy, cutsey, puppy-love stories. Most importantly, I LOVE RARE/OBSCURE PAIRINGS. The weirder, the better, so bring 'em on!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I absolutely will NOT beta stories about cutting, suicide, rape, or child molestation. I require for any explicitly sexual fics to be between characters who are at least 18 years of age. Again, I will not do stories with excessive amounts of original characters, and I will not beta a story in which the main love interest is an original character.
