Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have never beta-read for fanfic, but I am quite experienced proof-reading and editing texts in RL, both fiction and non-fiction. I can be a bit perfectionist at times, but I think that the critiscism I give is /br /br /

I do not wish to beta any longer stories. Multi-chapter is fine, but not more than say fifteen chapters. I would, however, prefer one-shots, mainly because I don't have that much time.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do well with grammar and spelling. Also stylistic things, such as word choices or scene breaks. I like to think I have quite a good grasp of feelings as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Plots, most likely. I can easily discuss it and offer suggestions, but I will have great difficulty offering advice on the plot of an already written story. Also, characterisation. I think I have become damaged by reading so much fanfiction I have completely accepted alternative character interpretations as the norm... I'll tell you if the characters feel wrong, but that's about all I can /br /br /

And I am also not a native speaker of English.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am completely and utterly devoted to father-son relationships. So if the story involves it I will most likely read it. I also like hurt/comfort and general friendship-centered fics.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I rarely read slah, with the exception of Athos/Aramis of "The Three Musketeers", nor do I like stories mainly about het relationships so I won't beta that, but otherwise I am rather open. I probably won't do OCs.
