Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've only been writing fan-fic for a short time but I have been reading it for longer and there have been times when I desperately want to run spell check on a document or fix some horrific grammar. I do not like the use of shortened forms of words (i.e U, luv, wat) in fan-fic or any piece of writing unless it is a text message, email or instant message. I would love to see more really great fics and my goal as a beta reader would be to make your fic the best that it can. I can edit in both Spanish and English although English is my first language.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a giant grammar nerd so you can guarantee that the first thing I will comment on is your grammar. I'm good at doing both introspective stories as well as third person stories. I have experience in poetry and prose writing and also in essay- style pieces.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't read lemons and I do better sticking to cannon fics as opposed to throwing characters of my own devices into an already good story. However, if you are submitting a fic with original characters, I would love to read it but I just don't have the guts to do it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
In the context of crime shows, I like case fics. I also like fics about a pair in the show that isn't necessarily the first one you think of in a show or book (and this isn't just in a romantic sense) For Twilight, some of my favorite fics are Carlisle and Esme, For Castle, I like the friendship between Beckett and Alexis, For Bones, I like Bones and Parker or Bones and Angela (I'm also a sucker for a good piece of fluff). I like high school or college fics. I am also okay with crossovers as long as both shows are ones I am familar with.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No slash fic, lemons or Buffy fics. I will do pretty much every other fiction but just be wary as I'm not familiar with EVERY fandom on this site.
