Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a very thorough beta-reader, but that doesn't mean I'm above human error. I'll try my very hardest to ensure that no mistakes are left behind, be they grammatical, spelling errors, of contextual faults. I'm open to any type of genre and any story type. Smut? Fluff? Slash? Crack? 3-way relationships? Asexual relationships? No problem.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I suppose spelling and grammar are a given. I've got quite a bit of knowledge on obscure topics (ie. fetishes, kinks, bdsm, asexual relationships, polygamous relationships, sexuality, gender identity, and so on.) So I can give pointers on how to correctly and successfully write about these things.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I try to stay away from authors who make a character evil for no purpose other than they get in the way of your OTP. Likewise, characters that are there for the sole reason of getting your OTP together. What's the point of a character with no... character?
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
No specific preferences. Maybe stories that have interesting relationships that are outside the social norm. I'm also a stickler for a good, well-thought out AU. You could say I think AU's are /gold/. (That's about the extent of my humour)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories where the OC is the main character and is admired by everyone else because they're some sort of special snowflake with the most tragic back-story imaginable but has every ability that the strongest characters have, and then some. Rape. Rape is a no no. Even if you feel it's essential to the plot. Stories where certain characters have their personalities completely flipped just because you don't like them.
