Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an active person here and will reply back to any messages and questios send to me as soon as possible. This is something I also expect of writers. You want me to beta read, you'll answer any questions and remarks I have as soon as you can. It's also preferable you're at least polite when I point things out and don't start a temper tantrum, explaining just why I am wrong and you are right. Sorry, but my patience only goes so far.

If I decide to beta read your story, and if it contains OC's that are significant, I would appreciate it if I get some sort of character sheeth for them. Just so I know you put some thought in it. It will also help me understand the character and the way he, she or it reacts to your fictionverse.

Besides all that, just have fun. We all write for fun here and I'm more than happy to get to know the person I beta read for.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Details in a story and small inconsitencies. If they're there, I will hunt them down and point them out. I will also definitely point it out when a character is out of character without a valid reason.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
English is not my first language. As such, you shouldn't rely on my to nitpick your grammar. There are other beta's out there far more suited for that sort of thing. Of course, should I encounter big spelling and or grammar mistakes, I will point them out.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have a preference of stories as long as there is a plot present. It doesn't have to be anything big and important. Just something that ties the whole story together. A story without a plot can't exactly be called a story after all! Even your little one shot in the making should have something of a plot or idea.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories without even the slightest illusion of a plot, mindless rambles without purpose and romances where it makes no sense at all for certain characters to fall in love. I'm a fan of canon characters and while I would love to see certain characters together with others, I'm enough of a realist to know it won't happen (irony much? As though there's something like realism in fiction world!). Unless there's something that happens that brings said characters together, but then we're right back at the plot departement.
