Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta read, I tend to look first and foremost at the grammar and spelling used. If a story is correct grammatically it tends to flow better, and I have found that most readers appreciate that. Secondly, I look at characterizations and then dialogue. If it doesn't sound right, then there needs to be a reason behind it. I don't mind people being out of character, but I need to understand why the character is acting that way.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at grammar, and I am a quick read, and a fast typist. I tend to put a comment in when I make a change, and I am a skilled teacher. I love to work with someone to bring out their hidden talents.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness, as some of my reviewers will tell, is dialogue. I am working hard to improve in that area, but feel free to take my recommendations in that field with a grain of salt.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta Harry Potter fics. I enjoy Dr. Who, Rachel Morgan, Torchwood and Star Trek fics as well, and would be open to that.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not into male/male parings, and in the HP realm the only m/m pairing that I would find acceptable would be Sirius/Remus. Don't get me wrong, love is love wherever someone might find it, and I won't judge, but I'm just not comfortable with most m/m pairings.
