|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am frequently appalled by the number of people who seem to be skipping their high school English classes, even the people who claim to be English teachers. I accept stories with a well thought-out premise, and which follow the mechanics, limitations, and speech patterns of the appropriate universe. I am also a stickler for remaining as close to canon as possible (unless it is a complete AU). I'm good at fixing any spelling or grammatical errors and making sentences fit together in a coherent way.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar (spelling, punctuation, etc.), word choice, voice, sentence fluency, character development, summaries.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
According to my close friend, I can be ruthless when I am pointing out errors. However, this friend is particularly sensitive about this kind of thing, so I remain skeptical. Nevertheless, I do tend to get annoyed when people make careless or common mistakes. Also, if your story is set in older times, such as Victorian era, I'm not sure I'd be able to keep the dialogue in line with the time period.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
If it is romance, I am picky about which pairings I like. If you check my regular profile, I have a list of them all. I also like crossovers, angst, and AUs. Sometimes the rules of grammar can be bent for the sake of stylistic choice. If it is a recognizable change, I will accept it. If it is merely wrong, I will hound you about it until you either fix it or drop me as a Beta.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Mary Sues, death of a beloved character, most crack, "everybody dies" endings. First person point of view annoys me, as it is tricky to pull off well and often not done right.
