Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I mostly just edit for punctuation, spelling, and grammer. I may make suggestions on flow, style, sentence structure, word use, and, on the rare occasion, character development or use of descriptions. I will not be offended if my suggestions are ignored. I reserve the right to abandon any story I am no longer enjoying, but I will always inform the author first and wait a few chapters to see if it improves. I am very frank; this is both a strength and a weakness as a betareader. Do not take my criticism as a personal attack; if I did not appreciate the story, I would not choose to read it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have two years of university English, including essays, short stories, and poetry. I have a good eye for flow, both of mechanics and content in a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While I am good at pointing out flaws in others' work, I cannot always tell how they would best be fixed. I can generally point someone in the right direction, but in the end all improvements are up to the original writer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a slash reader. My guilty pleasure is Harry Potter crossovers that do not take place in the Potter universe, preferably with a series I am familiar with. I am also a fan of Harry/Snape, Lex/Clark from Smallville, Raito/L from Death Note, Puck/Kurt from Glee, and just about any slash pairing with Logan from X-men.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will refuse any stories from a series I am unfamiliar with. I am not usually a fan of canon pairings, but I will at least try to read them. I don't enjoy angst and there is only so much fluff I can take. I will not take on a story I do not enjoy and may abandon a story if it goes too far in a direction that I cannot appreciate. I don't like helpless or all-powerful heroes; all things in moderation people. I don't care for OC's being given too large a role, but may appreciate a well-written OC in a solid supporting role.
