|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I try to be honest. If I think something's not working, I'll tell you so and what I think you might try to fix it. Likewise, if I think something's awesome, I'll gush about it.
Usually, I'll read your fic through three or four times and compile a list of critiques/suggestions/corrections/whatever in chronological order. If you'd prefer some other format, let me know and I'll do my best to accomodate—it's your story, I want to edit it in a way that works best for *you*.
My only request is that you be polite please don't send me something the second you've finished typing it up; read it through once or maybe twice and get rid of any of the bizarre typo errors that magically creep in during the writing process, like duplicate words or sentences that end abruptly mid-phrase.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty thorough. Anything out-of-character or that strikes me as contradictory to canon, I'll point out and more than likely provide examples from canon as to why. I get equally nit-picky over glaring plot holes or sloppy world-building. I'm very good at grammar/spelling, but I'll restrain myself on to picking on only the most egregious errors unless you ask me otherwise.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not great at romantic/sexual relationships, being resoundly uninterested in them in real life. Also, my sense of humor is pretty dark, and a lot of what I find hilarious, many people really don't and vice versa.
I make a lot of allowances for stylistic choice, but if I think you have too many adverbs I WILL try to burninate 90% of them. Whether this is a bad thing is up to your discretion.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Although I'm happy to read both, I prefer long works over one-shots because there's more opportunities for plotting and world-building, which are awesome.
I also love AUs and crossovers (provided those crossovers are either adequately explained or awesome enough that it doesn't matter).
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not too fond of stories that are 100% about shipping. Also smut or parodies aren't really my thing.
