Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to fanfiction writing, but I'm not new to fanfiction and I'm not new to writing. I have a pretty chill personality and my default tone when beta-reading will probably be polite suggestions. If you'd like me to be more blunt and open, please do tell (blunt & open =/= mean & degrading). It's all about what you're looking for. My writing falls on the casual side so I tend to care more about how a story flows than how grammatically correct it is. I am yaoi/yuri/het/crack/gen friendly. I have my favorite and least favorite pairings, but it's really how you work it that matters. I'd prefer to use Word so I can highlight things and makes notes, but I'm pretty much willing to do whatever is most convenient for you.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to focus on structure and what -sounds- right. Whenever I proof my own stories, most of my changes tend to be stylistic and focus on readability. But this does not mean I cannot be a proper Grammar Nazi. I'm actually pretty picky when it comes to unintentional grammatical/technical errors. I also love researching stuff and will be happy to put my wealth of resources to use for you.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Plots. I am not your plot bunny. If you get stuck, I can help you brainstorm and talk it out, but that's pretty much it. Also: punctuation. My writing-style often uses punctuation more as directions for speaking rather than actual grammatical correctness (e.g. I tend to use commas when I want a pause. Even if it's not grammatically sound.)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories I'm familiar with (which you can see below.) This is especially true if you want help with story content rather than structure (e.g. characterization.) I am very much willing to beta for a series that I've never read as long as you only expect me to correct mechanical/structural errors.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If your characters are so OOC that they're unrecognizable (&it's not a plot point), I'd rather not. &I mean this in a 'they're CHARACTERS not ACTORS' sortof way. Because there is a difference. Normal/inevitable OOC is okay. I understand that. Also, Original Character-centric stories are definitely Not My Cup Of Tea. I'll still beta it for grammar if you really want? Or if you feel like your OC is really FANTASTIC and well fleshed out.
