Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! I have an excellent eye for things that don't look right or sound right. I can make things readable for you. I can help forming coherent plots. I can check your characterisation. I can be as formal or informal as you like, but it's my personal policy to be simply be kind in my online interactions. Luckily for you, that totally means that any criticisms I have will be gentle.

What is my 'beta-reading style', you ask? I think the best way to figure out if my style will suit you or not is to have a chat with me and give some of my stories a quick read to get a good impression of my style as a writer. That being said, I do my utmost to preserve the style of the actual author when I'm making suggestions. Essentially, try me. It could be interesting.

Oh, and I don't exactly have any expectations of you. Be a decent human being and appreciate me if I choose to take the time to help you out, I suppose.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I know a lot about grammar, spelling and punctuation and, when I'm trying, I pick out errors with the same enthusiasm and attention that I would have if I was picking up money from the ground. As you can see, I also have a penchant for being rather expressive in my writing, if that's a style you prefer. I can also tell you if your plot is much too outrageous, or your characters dismal representations of themselves, or if something in your story is just plain awkward.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not very good with sorting out plotlines - although I must say, that's something I've been improving on. Often I'll start a story with no idea where it's going, although usually I'll have collected my ideas and perfected the plot somewhere during the process of writing. I'm busy a lot of the time and tend to procrastinate. Also, I'm not perfect! I can be sloppy! Don't think that just because I've read over your story and made suggestions that it's flawless.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that are truly out-of-the-box - ideas that have never been tried before. Unusual pairings are lovely. I'm always up for romance and I'm fine with slash or femslash. I'm good with incest too, so...yeah, I read anything as long as it's for a fandom that I feel immersed in. Seriously. Except that alpha/beta/omega crap that seems to have taken over the fanfic world. What on earth even.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not really. It would have to hurt my eyes or my feelings pretty damn badly for me to refuse to read it. Not the hugest fan of totally explicit gore/rape that serves only to totally humiliate a character, though. C'mon, that's not exactly a fun time.
