Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a native English speaker and skilled with spelling and grammar. I have been writing my own stories for close to ten years, and fanfics for three. My editing style is to take a word document of the original and use the review feature to track the changes (such as changes to grammar, spelling, and style). I may also make suggestions on a paragraph-by-paragraph basis, or at the end of the chapter. This way the author can she the changes I have made and choose what he/she would like to keep as changes. I will not be offended if the author does not keep all of my changes or take all of my suggestions. I certainly don't take every single suggestion made on my writing, so I understand. If you would like to acquire my services, please send a message including a description (more detailed than the general fanfiction summary, please) of the story, plot and pairings. I am willing to work with writers whose first language is not English. I also speak French to a degree, so I may be of most use to a French writer writing in English. However, I am not skilled enough to work on stories in the French language.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at betareading for grammar, classic writing cliches and if things generally make sense. I can also improve the sophistication level of writing. I have edited often for people younger and much more sensitive to criticism than me, so I am good at tempering my criticism so as to not offend. I have been flamed before, so I understand how much it sucks and try to keep things on a constructive note.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not always perfect at picking out OOC, something I struggle with in my fanfics too. I started writing originals, and then fanfics later so I'm used to choosing how the character acts without previous basis.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer shonen-ai/yaoi to yuri or straight. However, I do like if there is other layers to the plot than just the romance. I like original plots, nothing too overdone.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
One-shots less than 1000 words; descriptive rape; original character/OC; gender swap; mpreg
