Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an avid fan of Slayers, Doctor Who, and Megamind, who has read a lot of the fanfiction on this site. I think good stories deserve to be well-written, and I'd like to help people achieve that. I'm also pretty serious about keeping characters in character (unless they stray for very good reason) so I will work best with authors who feel the same way.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am good at characterization, at helping to find just the right word to communicate what you want to say, and I have a solid grasp of grammar and basic writing style.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best at spelling, so if that is an issue, it is probably better left to Spell Check. I may be more lenient than I should be when editing, as I know how devastated *I* can be when receiving negative feedback.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer multi-chapter projects, but am certainly willing to look at one-shots. My strong preference is for stories involving canon couples (when romance is involved) and I AM willing to look at lime/lemon within certain bounds (no same-sex or non-consensual, please).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to be sent stories containing pure tragedy/angst. Romance-themed one-shots will be accepted, but be advised that I will be especially alert for cliches when editing such pieces. Also (see above) I'd strongly prefer to avoid non-cannon pairings.
