Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm an avid reader and able to adapt to most writing styles. I help friends and acquaintances in real life edit their college papers and short stories, as well as assist in brainstorming for new plots or characters. I usually take about a day per 8 pages, sometime longer if there are serious issues, sometimes less if I am really into the story. I prefer helping stories with plot and will only touch original character stories that have a well developed OC or an OC that the author is willing to receive constructive criticism on and alter, I have no interest perfect Mary-sues come to save the day. I will help on AUs so long as the characters are all still IC.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization, plot and character consistency, and story flow. I also promise to keep things in your own voice, I'm not here to rewrite the story in my words.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a love for run-on sentences and some comma usage issues. Most other grammar matters I am fine with.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories only involving cannon characters, but as previously stated I will help with OC centric stories if the OC is believable/can be made believable.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Flat out plot, what plot? lemons. Fics that are character bashing, or portray a cannon character in an overly dramatic and negative fashion. Complete AU stories such as: the cast of Rockey Horror Picture in a high school! I prefer stories ground in the original setting, or at least with a very good and understandably reason why they are outside the original setting.
