Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a reader, I am often distracted by small errors in spelling, grammar, or word usage. With this in mind, I beta read looking for such mistakes that are easy for the writer to overlook but may detract from the reader's experience if not caught and corrected. My suggestions are purely suggestions; I respect the effort that goes into writing and the bravery it takes to open it up to criticism. The final choice to change things is completely in the hands of the writer. It's your world, I am just correcting in it.

My pen isn't red. It's more of a soft purple.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a trained eye for catching small mistakes and in discovering possible development holes in plot. A second set of eyes is always a benefit and my eyes are sharp. I also remember a whole lot of random crap from shows, so I get obscure references from past episodes with an almost pathological accuracy.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I need a gentle reminder that this is fan fiction, and in writings it's perfectly acceptable for the character of a show/book/movie/what-have-you to act any which way the writer pleases, which may not necessarily be in an established manner. It's fiction. I'm with it most of the time, but sometimes I have made a comment about character consistency.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
L&O: CI, L&O, CSI: LV, NY, Miami. Procedural crime shows mostly, but I can read anything and correct anything for grammar, plot holes, etc.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing slash heavy or Mary Sue heavy (some is OK). I am more into established characters and what they do. RPF isn't my thing either.
