Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been reading since the age of about three, and I've been looking over fanfic with a critical eye since... well. Not that long ago. But I've helped a number of authors onto the straight and narrow road of correct grammar, proper spelling and punctuation, and I've found that it both makes me happy and is highly satisfying. I hope that whoever chooses to come to me with their work finds themselves satisfied as well.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Punctuation, grammar, vocab, spelling, sentence structure.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Trying not to re-write someone's fic in the process of editing it. Overusing big words where small ones could be used, and going over a fic so carefully I take too long to get it back to its respective author.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Crossovers, AU, Time Travel, fic involving kids, happy endings, lots of action, fics over 10k words.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Any stories involving Mpreg, incest, graphic sexual relationships, romances in general. And anything involving Naruto.
