Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not too particular about your spelling (that's what I'm here for) but make it legible. I'm very focused on assuring that things are in character and that your plot flows nicely. I also tend to zone in on things like word repetition. I love working both within the set rules of a fandom's universe and doing AUs. I'll always tell you if I feel that things are going in the wrong direction, but I assure you that I am very polite and always open to friendly debate and more often than not ready with suggestions of my own.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a pretty varied vocabulary and a good sense of how a character might react in any given situation, so if OOC-ness is an issue, I can help.

I'm also chock-full of ideas and ready with suggestions whenever you might hit a block. My spelling isn't too shabby either.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My main weakness is occasional problems with punctuation and sometimes grammar. I have my basics down and whatnot, but it is my weaker point.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I tend to excel with angst, drama and romance. I do have specific ships listed on my profile, but I'm willing to work outside of them. I also enjoy fluff and tragedy, honestly so long as the storyline interests me I'll do it. I'm also more than willing to work on Original Character fics, but be advised that if you OC comes across as a Mary Sue/Gary Stu, I will let you know- but I'll also advise you on how to change it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No offense, but no Yuri/Yaoi or crazy explicit smut. (adult situations are fine, I'm just no good at the insanely detailed stuff) I'd rather not do self inserts or MPreg either. Also, no Twilight or 50 Shades. I can't stand the stuff.
