Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey everyone!

I have never officialy beta-ed before, but I have proofread stories and essays for some of my friends. Generally, I don't mess with what the author has written unless the grammar or spelling is off. I think that if you start changing words around, then the story loses part of its original flavor. If I feel like something else needs to be changed, I make the suggestion, but after that it is totally up to the author to alter it.

I am usually on my computer almost constantly, unless I am in class so I will be able to work quicly and return the story as fast as possible.

If you have any questions, or if you want me to check your story out; don't hesitate to PM me! I'd love to hear from you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammar are definetely in my strengths, as is attention to detail. I am a rather imaginative person, so I will always be able to supply SOME form of an idea if you ever get stuck.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I read rather fastly so sometimes I miss typos. Not spelling mistakes, just typos, like tehm instead of them. I typically re-read many times and as carefully as possible, but I am only human.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really mind what kind of story it is at all, as long as it is something I am familiar with. If something is not on my list, but you still want me to beta, send me a PM. I have read, watched and listened to a LOT of things so maybe I just forgot to add it.

There is only one one category that I would rather not read (see below). I generally prefer reading and writing canon, but I don't object to other pairings.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would rather not do slash.
