Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am currently working on four active stories, and have received mostly positive reviews for them. I can be as nice or critical as you need me to be. Need some reassurance if a chapter is working out? I can do that. Need a boot in the butt because you aren't sure what to do next? I can do that too.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can easily spot misspellings and repetitive words, or phrases. I know the difference between the use of slang and a simple spelling error. I can eliminate Mary and Marty and help with OC's. Dialogue is a strength of mine when applicable. I am also very good at working around HTML code. Finally, I will read, correct, and then re-read to make sure things are as they should be.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not very high tech. I don't use Microsoft Word or similar products. I use a site with an excellent spell checker, and will paste the finished chapter into an email for you. If you don't mind the low tech approach I can help out. I can occasionally miss small mistakes. Perfection eludes even the best of us and I am far from it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
For BtVS/AtS - Xander, Cordelia, Faith, and Tara.

For the others, listed below, tell me what you have. I will be honest on whether or not I can work with it. I will NEVER accept a beta request if the characters involved don't interest me. A beta with no personal stake in the story, does a disservice to it in the long run.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am open to crossovers with the stories listed below, with some exceptions: Harry Potter, Twilight, LoTR. Also, this type of fiction: poetry, fluff, or songfics. Other then what I've listed above, I'm pretty open-minded.
