Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Most of you want someone that can beta for you on your every beck and call. I always give a speedy response, My laptop is where I spend most of my time, so I'll never randomly bail on you. I'm nearly always available.
I expect you to credit me in your authors note or somewhere in the published file. I don't know, I'm just narcissistic like that. I critique sometimes harshly, but fairly. I'm generally polite, but I can deliver an e-slap in the face and tell you what's good and bad when the situation calls for it.

I edit with OpenOffice Writer.

Thank you for considering me. Don't be scared to approach, I don't bite. :)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My specialty is plots and storylines. I can detect holes and fill in gaps of information. If you have a tendency to write short fanfics but would like to make them longer, I'm your gal. Spelling definitely is another one of my strong points, and so is fixing grammar mistakes. I have a tendency to fully check things over at least five times before declaring it finished. I'm a very good judge of character, so I'm a great detective when it comes to OOC-ness. This isn't really relevant, but I'm awesome at writing anything to do with celebrities and fame. I'm good with both simple oneshots and drabblefics and long chapter-fics.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Punctuation is definitely a weakness of mine. I have a tendency to make stupid mistakes like '.,' and '?.', which I sometimes miss when I'm editing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I beta most things, but I'm best at humor/general fiction. Which is just a fancy way of saying I suck at most dramatic, dark fanfics. I prefer slash or canon pairings or just a genfic. I'm not good at writing het that's not already written into the storyline.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do OC fics. I believe that anything to do with an OC as the central or one of the central characters is completely up to the author. Especially the OC's interaction with main characters, since I can't judge their character. I also don't write anything with child molestation as a central theme. Songfics are a nono, but fics based on a song are fine.
