|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I am as polite as possible, I don't see a point in going to someone for help only to have them pointing out your every flaw in a rude or demeaning manner. I read things over several times, to understand the story and then to make basic corrections from there. Anything that I find I check with the author to understand what is deliberate and what is not.
I do not make changes to stories plot or character-wise, and grammar and spelling, anything is always highlighted and sent back to the author and they decide what to do.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in fandom continuity and grammar. The fandoms that I know, I know very well. I am also a student of history, specializing in the American Revolutionary War, the Napoleonic War, and the American Civil War.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My largest weakness as a beta is spelling.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Over most other stories I enjoy either complicated plots or one-shots. Usually stories that are lighter on the angst unless there is a resolution of it at the end.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No graffic slash and/or graffic pairings please.
