Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My beta style: I normally read the entire story, make a few side notes for myself, read it again to keep my focus vivid and then proceed to correct any spelling or grammar errors first and foremost. Then, I'll regard you if you'd agree on changing anything deemed too out of character, plot error(s), awkward sentences, or something out of place with the dialogue. Should I be consulted about it, I'll mull it over before giving my own piece of mind/suggestion on how the story should advance or develop.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As far as I'm concerned, I hold my fair share of knowledge on the schematics of the English language and really enjoy smoothing stories out. I'm good at helping reduce "OOC-ness", reducing the unneeded repetitiveness of a story, when important details are left out, awkward word flow, finicky formatting; things of that sort. I'll also be of most help if it's on a fandom I'm aware of.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm horrible when it comes to staying out of a comatose when I read paragraph after paragraph of exaggeratedly detailed moments. I'm a bit of a details person myself; but too much makes it hard for me to focus in a sitting.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Personally, I write in the third person point of view, so I'm really accustomed to that style of writing. There's no need to worry about me complaining if your story has angst, torture, mature sexual content and the like—just make sure the gore, if present, isn't too much to the point it's unnecessary. Also, I'm at my best beta-performance if it's on a series I know a lot about. In addition, I am comfortable with all pairing types.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
A few things I absolutely will not tolerate: when you don't use spell-check or revise your own story beforehand; the use of "text-talk"; unnecessary rape/non-con; shotacon; pedophilia, and m-preg.
