Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a stickler for grammar, spelling and proper punctation and formatting, but I won't try to impede the way the message was originally written. I like collaborating with the author to work through an issue we may be having and I would take into consideration author feedback on any changes I made, especially to word order, as I know odd or awkward order may have been deliberate. br /br /br /br /br /

I also try to stay true to the characters (unless, of course, the fanfiction is an AU) in the fandom.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at grammar and spelling, as well as formatting. When I put my mind to something, I am very dedicated and will work hard to make sure the stories I betaread are ready to go as soon as possible as not to cause any undue stress on the author or upset any readers.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My largest weaknesses would definitely be in spotting continuity errors. Plot lines (as a writer) are my best weakness and an issue that often takes me time to work through. I feel my issue with directing plot lines won't be as much of an issue when I am a beta, but it is still a weakness that needs to be addressed.br /br /br /br /br /

I also suffer from writer's block often. Again, I feel this issue will not be as severe when I am betareading, but still a good piece of information to have on me.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta either chapter stories with a structured plot, a series of interrelated one-shots, or meaningful one-shots. I will beta smut, but I would prefer it in the context of an overall plot line, not the main focus of the story. I would also prefer that any chapters stories already have a general plot outline and are not simply "making it up" as they go along.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really would not appreciate betareading any stories having to do with some of the more...out there subcategories of whatever fandom I am betareading. Examples of this would be: adult-child relationships, human-animal relationships, etc. along those lines.br /br /br /br /br /

I also will not beta any works that I find persecutes, belittles or negatively display minority or groups of humans, i.e. a fanfiction that says or implies being against homophobia, in a way not relevant to the text. I accept all ways of life and do not want to be a part of something that doesn't. The mentions of things like homophobia, racism, sexism may be present, but only in such a way that contributes to the overall story, not in a way meant to be offensive.
