Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I'm pretty accurate. I can help you with minor grammar mistakes, major mistakes, spelling mistakes, the feel/tone of the piece (angsty,happy,indifferent etc), information on canon characters... you name it. br /

br /

I don't expect much from the author, except that you don't give me a work with gaping holes in it. Things like obvious spelling errors, double negatives (unless they're intentional), gaping plot holes, random plot devices... stuff that kindergartners should be able to spot. As in you do what you can and leave the rest to me. If you need help brainstorming, I'm more than happy to help.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good at spelling, grammar mistakes, adjectives... stuff like that. I can identify/set the mood and tone in a piece. I'm pretty good at giving insight.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Commas are not my strong suit. br /

br /

Neither are semi-colons.br /

br /

I tend to over-use ellipses... especially in informal writing.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer Harry Potter canon stories, simply because i know Harry Potter best. And because I can always check the books if I'm not sure. But really it's not like I don't like beta-ing other stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not beta slash stories. Nothing against homosexuality. And stories whose only purpose is 'smut'. Sex/Kino in works that have plot are fine. Even if the sex is part of the plot.

Also, parody stories I do not like. Especially weird stories that end up having to do nothing with the (intended) subject.
