Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi there!

I want to take your fiction and make it as good as I am capable of. I want to make it as good as you are capable of. I want your readers to get to the end of every chapter you write without getting annoyed that you misplaced a comma, that you threw them out of the narrative or that your characters make them want to bludgeon something to death.

I'm reasonably good, but I'm harsh. Let me say it one more time, I'm harsh. And for the kids in the cheap seats, I'm harsh. You're warned.

Other than that? Erm, I'm British, so if you're not and you're writing in a fandom that is, I can Brit-pick. Conversely, if you're not American and you're writing in an American fandom, I can't Yank-pic for you.

Pr0n is fine, and I can reality check that.

I have a smattering of French and a smattering of Latin, but other than that I can't help with languages.

Contact wise, message with details of your fic (approximate length, fandom, pairing, basic plot) and your email address and I'll get back to you. Pretty constantly contactable by email, so the beta will be done when it's done, but you can check on my progress and I can check in with you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and Grammar come as standard.

I am quite good at telling you when your dialogue is screwy.

I'm pretty good at telling when something will make people hit the back button.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
You get one level of beta. That's one tone.

There is no baby version for those who are new and delicate.

I am sparse with praise.

I'm dogmatic and opinionated.

Doesn't mean I'm not perfectly lovely, doesn't mean I'm no good, just means you have to be able to look after yourself.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm generally more familiar with the conventions of slash, but het is also fine.

Basically, if it's not covered under the 'DO NOT WANT' category below, send it in!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not really wanting anything other than the categories I'm registered for. If it's a movie, I'm willing to watch it, but please, no horror and no gross-out comedy. I'm just not a fan.

I'm not picky about content. Please though, no real person fic/slash. And please, no fetishisation of incest or rape. (I'll take non-con and dub-con, but not if it's played like a hot thing.)

Oh, also, no poetry and no songfics. No crack fics.

Send in humour fics at your peril. It's not that I won't do them, it's just that I might be a bit rough if they're not funny.
