Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I fell in love with slash fan fiction the first moment I happened across it while surfing the net. I'm an avid reader and have even written some stuff myself. I really enjoy discovering a new story and a new take on the characters I love. I expect writers to care about their work, to fight for what they want and their opinions. At the same time you have to be willing to accept change and learn as you go. You have to remember that anything I change or adapt in your story is to improve it, not to degrade you.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good a spotting plot holes and helping to get the right overall feel for a story. I'm also keen on grammar and spelling mistakes. The flow of the writing in a story is key in my opinion so that's another point I focus on. I'm very aware that someones story is their baby and I believe that the author has the final say on everything. However, if you've asked me to beta for you I assume you've done it for a reason and I will be as honest as possible with you.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can be quite picky if I think what you're trying to say isn't coming across, even if it's just a choice of words. Please don't be offended. It's nothing to do with how well you write or your ideas, I'm just trying to showcase your talent to it's best advantage!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a slash girl. Mostly m/m but I don't mind a bit of femslash occasionally. My preferred universes are:

Stargate Atlantis Stargate SG-1 Harry Potter NCIS Hollyoaks

but I would be willing to take a look at others - making a decision based on my knowledge of the canon storylines and the context of your story

P.s. I'm a MASSIVE Rodney/John fan so if you really wanna make me happy send me some McShep loving!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not particularly keen on Het or Gen - they just don't do anything for me so I'm pretty sure I'd be a rubbish beta for them.
