Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not the best writer in the world, I admit that first. I'm my own worst critic, but I can be pretty strict to other people as well. I prefer stories that tell a good tale, but a little funny/pointless one-shot is nice as well. I expect writers to know what they want from their stories, a basic storyline, and know that stories don't just show up over night. As a reader I look for plot, use of words, and dedication to character. In fanfiction we are taking from people what we don't actually own and sculpting it the way we want. This is a delicate art, and I believe some take advantage of it. Most, however, are generally good. Hope you'll send a story my way so I can help. Oh, and while I may try and help out as much as possible, never take my word as the final verdict. It's YOUR story, I'm just here to help. Also, any and all preferences I put down I know a good deal amount of information about it, even if I haven't written a story about it on here.

Oh, one more thing. I am currently a college student. So my feedback may not be the fastest, but I'll try my best.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I suppose I can catch typos decently well, I pay close attention to character interaction and dialogue. Keeping close to character is very important to me, and if anytime I read something and think, "That's not what (insert character here) would say in this situation," I'll notice it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can catch typos, but I do miss some of them. I personally have a hard time writing actions, so sometimes when I read I skip over it to get to dialogue. With betareading I don't plan on doing that, but it is a weakness.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Humor, action, parody, drama, these are the types of stories I read. I'll read romantic stories as long as they are not explicit and I like the pair.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nearly anything rated M. Explicit language or sexuality is not my thing and I won't read it.
