Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to be able to discuss stories, not just red-pen them (though I can do that too). If you are only looking for a proofreader, I can do that for you, but please specify that is what you want. When offering a full beta, I would never expect that you take all of my suggestions. You are welcome to disagree with me, and you can do so silently or we can discuss it - I am comfortable either way.

I have, on occasional, ran into stories that I couldn't beta, from a technical standpoint. I can only fix errors, I can't change your writing style, and there are some styles that I find very difficult to read and beta.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at catching the more technical aspects of writing like spelling and grammar. I pay a lot of attention to continuity (especially with physical movements and positions) within a story. I also can help with keeping everyone in-character.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may have trouble helping with dialogue or awkward verb tenses. I frequently make my own sentences longer than they should be, so I may, sometimes, overlook a run-on in your writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a sucker for some good fluff, but I'm usually open to anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read torture or very hard violence.

FOR HARRY POTTER ONLY: I will only beta short stories. I have gotten a lot of requests for novel-length Harry Potter stories, and I'm very sorry, but I just don't have enough time to read those. I will consider long stories from other fandoms on a case-by-case basis.
