As of now I'm a big fan of Marble Hornets, Game of Thrones, and The Avengers/Marvel Cinematic Universe fandoms, but I’m willing to consider being a beta on stories for Twin Peaks, Orphan Black, The Walking Dead, Primeval, Harry Potter, Veronica Mars, Westworld, and Syfy Alice fandoms. I'm also always willing to take a PM from you to see if I'm willing to beta something not listed here. br /br /

If you want me to beta for you I expect a good effort to make your writing understandable. If I have to work extremely hard to interpret what you are saying, I'll probably bow out of the project. I also expect that you'll take corrections/suggestions/ideas with the mindset that I'm only trying to help you have the best end product possible. When I make suggestions/corrections it’s not out of a desire to be mean-spirited. I'm just trying to help. The relationship between a beta and a writer is a lot of back and forth – discussion between us will not only allow some very fun ideas to flow, but it will also allow us to find the best way to express an idea by looking at it from different perspectives.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very detail-oriented, so I catch continuity errors quickly. I'm very organized, and if I’m really into a fandom I tend to have a mind like an encyclopedia when it comes to facts in that world. I also have an ability to cut to the quick – if something just isn’t working I’m going to tell you. One of my strengths as a writer is characterization. I love getting into the heads of characters, and really seeing things from their perspective.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I will admit, I do abuse the comma. My sentences are FULL of commas – I’m a big fan of run-on sentences. I do, however, know when enough is enough. Another weakness of mine is punctuation – I can catch it when it’s missing or glaringly wrong, but I’ve occasionally had to consult my grammar books to distinguish technicalities in cases that are a little more ambiguous or less obvious.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm really pretty open as far as story content goes. I get attached to certain characters in my fandoms, and I understand their headspace really well so I prefer stories centering around them, but I'm very willing to beta for other characters in order to learn new things about them. I love angst – dark and tragic stories as well as hurt/comfort fics totally float my boat. The more character abuse in a story the better. I do enjoy a well-written fluff piece from time to time, though.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read a lot of parody pieces or crack!fic – you know "The Walking Dead - American Idol Style!" or “If The Marble Hornets Crew Actually Used Facebook” are not really my thing.
