Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I began to read and write fanfiction because I love Slash. Specifically, very silly slash. Not stupid-silly, but stories with some laugh out loud comedy to go along with a steamy (or just plain adorable) gay/lesbian romance. I'm happy to edit Crack and PWP, but I'm also just as eager to assist with any non-slash or multi-chapter adventure (or any genre). I really like to take my time with a piece I'm editing. I'll groom through it several times, looking at grammar, characters, plot. Because of this, my editing process is sometimes lengthy, but I'll always keep you updated. If you feel like we might be a good match, shoot me a PM! Put 'Beta Request' as the subject and please give me the fandom, genre, plot description, pairing/main characters, and what you would like out of me in the text of the message. I'll respond as soon as I can! [To eliminate any time wasted on your part, please read my Dos and Donts list to check if we're a potential match before messaging me! Thanks!]
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and the work as an overall piece. I can help you turn an early piece of writing into your best work. I like a story to flow and am good at spotting hiccups, inconsistencies and contradictions and suggest edits that will help you articulate a strong, smooth story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not 100% spot on with grammar. I do my best but if I'm heavily distracted by plot or character issues, etc, then I might miss a thing or two. In an attempt to counter-act this, I read over a story more than once looking for different things. I am also not the best with 'tone', but I am working on that.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Like I said above, I like the goofy stuff. Humorous, silly, outlandish, maybe centered around some same-sex slash is my ideal fic. But honestly, I love a good story. Something with adventure or good plot or that tells a moral or entertains. I'm open minded.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I DON'T do angst, incest, non-consent, pedophilia, m-preg, harem, or pointless dramatics. I appreciate good drama, although if it is too heavy I may be unable to trudge through. Not a fan of unnecessary or unrealistic gore/torture (but not entirely opposed). I am also bothered by Out of Character characters, and I will try to help with that to the best of my abilities. I'm not big on cliches, but who the heck is? I've never been a huge fan of OCs.
