|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've never beta-read before, but I've edited the original fiction of some of my friends, so I have some experience. I warn you, I'm fairly handy with my red pen.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can spot most grammatical and spelling errors, and I'll keep an eye out for plot inconsistencies. Also, I'll make suggestions if you're stuck on the plot or the characters, etc.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Lack of tact, and I don't check my ff.net account very often.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta stories within fandoms I'm familiar with. The Buffyverse, Harry Potter, and Star Trek are the ones I know best, but I know my way around The Lord of the Rings, Firefly, X-Men, Pirates of the Caribbean, and various others, mostly books and movies.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not particularly versed in anime/manga unless it's Fruits Basket or Neon Genesis Evangelion; most of the American comics I know are independent, so don't assume I know anything about the Green Lantern, other than that there were around 2 of them and their special powers were based on a ring; and I don't watch much TV.
No noncon or semiconsual sex stories, please. I'm fine with slash, femslash, het, and gen.
