Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, I can beta stories as I have free time on my hands. My native language is English, but I do speak fluent French. I have time to edit this summer and would love to give my services to writers since I have been a loyal reader of fan fiction from this site for years.

As for style I am very quick with my edits and try to focus on style and character development. I was on the staff of my college writing center helping others to write both fiction and non-fiction. When working with a writer, I first like to know what she/he is trying to convey in terms of plot and thought before I see the writing sample. Having this knowledge beforehand helps me to focus while editing and ensure that the writer is clearly conveying her/his points.

I would appreciate if the writer provides me with his/her expectations in regards to how often a chapter will be sent to me and when it should be returned. I understand that this doesn't have to be set in stone, but some notice would be greatly appreciated.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths regarding editing are: grammar, paragraph and sentence flow and character development. I am also know a lot about history and can help in ensuring that stories are historically accurate.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling is not my strong suit, but I can and will catch obvious mistakes. I appreciate if the writer would at least spell check the writing before it is sent to me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I mostly read and review stories linked to X-men (Remy/Rogue), Macross Frontier, LOTR (Faramir and Eowyn especially), Myth and some video games and other comics. I have a degree in psychology and history so have knowledge on those subjects. But I am willing to beta any story and stories of all ratings from K-M.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would say that Yaoi and Yuri is not my cup of tea.
