Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a combination beta-reader and teacher. If there's a mistake you make consistently, I'm going to explain to you why it's wrong, what's the right way to do it, and expect you to grow as an author by not repeating that mistake in the future. Even if you have to keep a journal of words that you usually spell wrong or get confused (i.e. definitely and defiantly - some people switch these two, for some reason.). Also, if you drop a word in such a way that makes the context funny or spell the same word three different ways in a row - and still get it wrong - there may be some mocking in your future.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammar. I also think I'm pretty good at sentence style and writing quotes in-character.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Long stories. Seriously, I have ADHD and I oh hey, that's a pretty bird! Polly wanna cracker?
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Slash and gen. Take two main male characters and slash them together. If not, write a deleted scene to an episode or an entire episode that seems like it could be part of canon. If it's not clearly a parody, please make it as realistic as reasonably possible, even if you don't think Dean and Cas (or Neal and Peter or Kirk and Spock) would actually date in the show. Star Wars: Original Trilogy era only, preferably the pilots. Anakin and Padme can kiss my @$$.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Het (graphic), true AU (Sam, Dean, and Cas are all high school students with high school drama; Peter Burke is the Majarajah of Icecrown and his wives - Elizabeth and Diana - give him a sex slave named Neal for his birthday), deathfic, or Mary Sue, including main original characters that are the main characters' girlfriend or long-lost sister. A naturally flirty main character may flirt with an original character. Smoking. It's disgusting and I don't want to smell it, see it, or read about it. You may make a reference to a smoky bar and/or have someone comment on how gross it is.
