|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'm new to this whole beta-thing, in fact, I'm still slightly new to the fanfiction world. I have one story in the works at the moment, but I've read more stories than I can even count, so I know what to look out for.
I will probably be able to get back to you within a few hours, no more than a day. If it's a very big request, I'll most likely inform you if it'll take longer for me to give you anything.
If you just need a second opinion or an honest one at that, I'm your girl =].
I can be pretty critical about whether or not something makes sense, but I try to put it in the nicest way possible. If I like something, I'll praise it. If I don't like it, or if something is just completely wrong, I'll work with you to fix or make it better.
Although I am currently at a roadblock in my own story, I'm good with expanding plots from the minds of other writers and I will help you to the best of my ability to make your story great.
I will add more later...
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with grammar, ESPECIALLY spelling. When I read stories, grammatical and spelling errors irk me and I try my hardest to ignore them while reading stories, but it just drives me mad.
I'm okay at plots and storylines, but once I get what you are trying to convey and what kind of direction you want your story to go in, I can be pretty good at forming plots.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have some problems with sentence-fluency, but nothing I can't fix.
I don't have THAT huge of a vocabulary, I sometimes find myself using the same words, but I can usually spot this pretty quickly. I try to broaden my vocabulary as much as possible.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Femslash =]. haha. Doesn't mean I'm not up for *normal* pairings. Umm fluffy romantic stories are great. Comedies full of sarcasm are even better. I can do Romance, Drama, Angst, Emotional.. I'm up for a story of any genre, really.
A/U stories, I tend to work better with.
Some types and pairings that I would beta:
One Tree Hill
I also like Mikiley (HM) and Olivia/Viola (She's The Man) fics.
You get the point... But yeah, femslash is good.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
-Umm, I don't think I will ever do any Marissa/Ryan fics unless it's a bomb-ass story. I just don't like the guy. haha.
-I'm not that great with keeping "within traditional values" (as in, most likely no normal pairings unless stated above) so I probably won't work as hard. Although I'm still open to it if I like the couple.
-No male-slash. I'd rather do femslash.. lol.
-If I were to beta a Harry Potter fic, I won't do a Ron/Hermione fic. I am a devoted HP fan, I am a member of the club, JKR is my hero, I just don't like the idea of Ron and Hermione. lol
-No Leyton fics please. I'm currently rooting for Lindsey on the series, and I never really liked her with Lucas.
Also, please put your stories into paragraphs. If it's in big chunks, I probably won't read it.
Other than that, I'm up for pretty much anything.
