Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I consider myself a general-purposes beta reader. I'll check your story for major grammatical and spelling issues, characterization, plot problems, etc. I'm also happy to help with brainstorming and story development. I tend to be blunt and am bad at sugar-coating br /br /

The fandoms I'm most familiar with are InuYasha and MMPR, but I can beta for any fandom I've written for or that's listed under my preferences.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization: I'll pore over the source material to figure out exactly how a character would likely react to a given situation. I've won several awards for characterization in the InuYasha fandom, and I do consider this to be one of my strongbr /br /

Plotting: Rooting out (and fixing!) plot holes is a hobby of mine.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar: I'm a former spelling bee champ and will catch your spelling and homophone problems, but I am not an English major. I don't know every little rule of punctuation use or verb tense and, honestly, I don't focus on those things in my writing or edits. As long as it's readable and the meaning comes through, I'm /br /

Male characters: Men frequently baffle and confuse me.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer plot-driven stories and stories about characters and pairings that I like, especially stories that are female-driven or have at least one major female character. I will edit for all ratings, but shipping is completely optional! Beyond that, check my preferences for genres I'm into. I'm perfectly happy to help you whip that 100-word drabble into shape or plot out your epic-length fic, as long as there's something in there that interests me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am next to useless when writing male characters. I'm willing to try, but I will be worthless in editing your explicit m/m fic for things like characterization and realism. I'm also not interested in beta reading for stories that are excessively out of character (unless the point is to bring the characterization closer to the source material) or include the following pairings: Jason/Kim, Tommy/Kira, Rum Tum Tugger/Mistoffelees.
