Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi I'm Amy and looking to improve on my writing by helping other people out with theirs!

I'm a Forensics and Chemistry student, so especially with like the CSIs and Bones and other crime shows, I can help out with some of the jargon and processes etc.

I'm British (Scottish), so can really help out with people who are not British trying to create the British tone of voice of people speaking/thoughts etc (the amount of say, harry potter fan fictions that are really obviously written by americans due to the overuse of bloody and snogging is hilarious!), but I also have a firm grasp on American voice and grammar etc.

I'm also a real stickler for grammar and spelling!

I will beta anything, even if its not a fandom I know (or a pairing I ship etc) to help with grammar, structure and tone.

However if you need a hand with characterisation, I can also help out with that providing it's a character or pairing I'm familiar with!

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Scientific and Forensic jargon, processes, just general making it make sense even for people who don't know anything about science!

I love good grammar and spelling!

Keeping British characters tone and voice British, and realistically so.

I also watch a lot of American shows, and it tends to be American characters that I write about so I can help out there too.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Characters like Danny Messer (CSI:NY) speak in such an individual 'american' way that I suppose I'd have trouble there, but I'd have no problem studying him for hours before trying to help someone with his dialect. *drools*
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Sci-fi, crime etc.

Have a look at my profile for all the pairings I have all the feels for, but here is a quick summary:

ONE TREE HILL: Nathan/Haley, Brooke/Lucas, Brooke/Peyton, Brooke/Julian, Clay/Quinn, Peyton/Jake.

CSI:NY: Danny/Lindsay, Flack/Angel, Flack/Lovato (and any other pairing tbh except D&L with anyone else).

FARSCAPE: John/Aeryn, Peacekeeper Aeryn

BONES: Brennan/Booth, Angela/Hodgins

FROZEN: Anna/Kristoff

Okay there's plenty more. If its not listed, just send me a private message!

Basically I'll beta fluff, smut, angst, family...

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Any of my OTPs with other people.

(especially Naley and Danny/Lindsay, and John/Aeryn)

Parody.

And badly written, jumping on the 50 Shades of Grey-esque stuff. Love a bit of steamy smut, but none of that garbage!
