|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I read for grammar, spelling, characterizations, and things that keep the story somewhat believable. I look at myself as an editor. I might suggest things that make the characters more like, well, the characters and things like that. I expect that the spelling is at least fair. If it's like "o, well i don want ta fix my speling" or something along those lines, I probably will turn you down. I also want it to be somewhat clean. No graphic scenes, por favor. I look to help an author mature in their writing.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths include romance, adventure, grammar, spelling, and word usage. I'm pretty good at the wording part of things and the whole English perspective. I also can help to try to keep a majority of the characters in the stories I read for, well, in character.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Um, well, I'm a sucker for a romance, no matter how horrid it is. I also like to read long chapters, so if yours isn't very long, I have a feeling I might get on your case sometimes. Sorry. I also have a large vocabulary, so I think I might stick in a lot of words that you might not understand (and nor will anyone else). When it comes to taking dialogue and such straight from a book, film, series, etc, I am very much against it unless it is absolutely vital. Otherwise... No soup for you. Write your own dialogue like the rest of the world.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have no real preferences. I'm a sucker for a good old-fashioned steampunk or historical fiction.br /
I love dark!fics, alternate universes, music, and marching band-related stories, too.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Non-canon yaoi/yuri/slash.br /
Lemons. (Noooo thank you!)
