Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
In 2005, a young girl switched on her massive Motorola mobile phone and tapped nervously into Google for Doctor Who fan fiction. That young girl was me, and seven years later she's a coffee-drinking Ancient History student on the other side of her teenage years with nothing to lose. Hehe, just an example of how long I've been reading fan fiction *wink*. As you can see, I started in 2005 with the re-boot of Doctor Who, and have since moved on to (in my opinion) far better and bigger things. So, come with us now in a journey through time aaaand space...to the world of Beta reading!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I'd say my strongest points are spelling and punctuation. Lately I've been taking the time to go over my punctuation and make sure everything's in context. I'm also, I like to think, that I'm pretty good at keeping a character in character; for instance, I know that people wouldn't expect Darth Vader to start making daisy chains for the Republic fleet. Heh. I'm also very picky. Bwaha. So all in all, I can help with: spelling, grammar, characteristics. Oh, and I can usually think of a few pop culture/story references to put in there.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Ah, weaknesses. I am, alas, quite slow in correcting something that I'm not too enthusiastic about. I first started Beta-ing for anything, and was hired to Beta for an X Men fic, which I had absolutely no interest in. However, if you ask politely, I owe you money or I simply like what you have chosen to write for, I will be real quick in returning your fic.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love just about anything when it comes to this bit, here. I'm a fan of your angsty stuff, and your romantic stuff, depending on my mood. I also love fluffy one-shots and epic multi-chaptered stories. I'm also a covert fan of smutty fics, so don't be shy in that area, either!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a great fan of fan fics that have been sneakily placed to try and break the rules, such as fics that involve abuse or incest. If you've been here a while you will have read such things by accident and, by golly, do they sting. As long as it's not illegal, I don't mind.
