Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I read a story I tend to edit as I go along. If i don't understand something I write that down, and if later on you explain it I will erase the question. I like to do it on the first run through before I have read the whole thing because I believe after you have read it a few times you tend to glance over certain aspects of the story. Like you know what is going to happen so certain errors don't jump at you. I'm only human so I can't catch everything but I will tell you anything that I don't agree with and then you can decide if you agree with me or not.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at noticing that a certain story doesn't flow at certain points, also catching obvious grammical or spelling errors.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am horrible with dealing with tenses. As you will notice in my stories I constantly flip from present to past to future.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like angst and general stories, and prefer stories that look at a story from several different viewpoints. I don't mind ship or slash but I like for the story to have more to it then just the relationship.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like hard slash. That means very explicit sexual content. I don't mind kissing but I don't read about intense sex. I also don't like over whumping over characters. I like whumpage just as much as the next person, but if you cause the whumpage to be a little over the top like you realize that no real person could survive that, then I have a problem.
