Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
hi, i'm a reader who likes any rating. I like quality oneshots and longer stories, although, please let me know if you are going to write a really long one before i commit (for the sake of your sanity and mine). i haven't put it because i am not fluent but i can read and write french quite well but my guarantee changes to five days if the story is completely in french and i don't mind if the author doesn't speak full english- i can improvise quite well. If i'm betaing for you i would expect that you at least attempt to keep characters in character and keep your spelling and grammar to a decent level, don't worry if you struggle with this though, that's what i'm here for and you can guarantee that i'm pedantic about spelling/ grammar.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i'm particulary good at spotting spelling errors, tense mistakes and i can type very fast, i will guarantee once i have accepted a story/chapter to have it completley done within three days . I promise i will be brutally honest with you, but i won't be mean and will always offer help with improving work if i can- and if i can't i'll keep my trap shut. i'm open to suggestions from people about stories they wish to write and will help as much as possible. Also i accept spelling/grammar errors as part of a characters speech, if i think the character would speak like this it is fine, i'm good at getting inside characters heads and working out what they would say although i'm best at this with Harry Potter characters, the Torchwood Team and Winchester brothers. I can get into Robert Langdon, the Spooks and OCs (own characters) if i'm given enough info on them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
i tend to think that ratings are usually too generous and am extremly strict with myself about this and will probably be the same with you although i am open to comprimising. i'm not perfect and admit that i may miss one or two commas or full stops though i do my best to avoid this by reading stories at least three times on seperate occasions before i submit them back to you. i do accept poetry although i'm not sure how much help i would be but will do my best if asked, as always i will proofread for specific poems eg. limmericks or haikus etc to make sure they match specific requirements.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
If it's on my favorites list or i've written it i'll beta anything similar. I really love slash and i'll go up to any rating. Incest is fine unless they're not really siblings then it's not incest eg. one adopted or non-human etc etc, you get the idea.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
i'm not good with threeway (Moreships) ships but i will try if a good storyline is thrown my way
