Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
one thing i should warn you with in choosing me as a beta: i really suck at the whole timing thing, so if you're expecting to just e-mail me your fic and get it back spotless the next day, it probably won't happen, 'cause i'm a spacey derp. i work best when there's open communication, like an ongoing IM dialogue or something to keep me on track and give me a better portrait of your needs/desires so i can do my best. as far as actual edits go, i prefer just fixing as i go along, or highlighting bits and pieces with margin notes (so double-space, please? :3 ) and sending the whole doc back and forth till it's a piece of Fucking Epic Fiction.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
grammar is where i earn a lot of brownie points, and yes, i do capitalize, i just choose not to when not writing. i work best with well-rounded oneshots or average-length chapter fics. i like to think i can help with characterization and adding emotional depth and meaning to stories.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
procrastination, definitely. and presenting critique in a logical, coherent manner.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
i loooooove deliciously depressing angst, drama, gore, etc. anything that focuses on character development and strives to go deeper than words on the surface is right up my alley. i like long one-shots. i like in-character fics, or really unique/well-developed AUs.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
i refuse to beta poetry. i'm okay with editing smut, but i really like writing to have some deeper meaning than just hot sex. i'm here to help, so get it as good as you can first, please. ;)
