Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
While I have not been a beta-reader before, I have offered my beta services in the past. I've written and read a good deal of fanfiction over the years. I will check to make sure that your characters are, in fact, in character. Please let me know beforehand if they're meant to be OOC. I'm a stickler for grammar and spelling. I will mention this. I know English is not an easy language, even if it is your first language. Errors I point out will help you learn. I pay close attention to detail, so do not be offended if I mention something. On the other hand, I will also let you know what I like about something you've written. If I don't, how do you know what the good things are about it? You can expect feedback on each chapter or one shot you ask me to beta. Things I critique will be based on the work as a whole, but I will point out strengths and weaknesses. I expect you to handle constructive criticism. I am not a mean person. In fact, I am one of the nicest people you will probably contact. Know that when I tell you something, I'm trying to help you. Finally, I will not write for you. If you have different ideas about something, ask me about them, and I'll give you my opinions on them. I do not care what level of a writer you are. If you have an idea, I'm willing to see it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at using correct grammar and writing. If I catch misspellings or sentences that would be better worded differently, I will point this out to you. I pay close attention to detail, and I will notice if something seems "off" in your story or if you are repeating or not explaining something very well. I also know how to write description well. I am very good at guessing the outcome of a fic. If you want to know if something is too predictable, I can definitely help you with that and fix it if it is.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may ramble. I will read something several times before I reply to you to avoid confusion. All you have to do is ask me a question to clear something up if you don't understand what I'm talking about. I may take some time replying to you as I beta. This is because I'm trying to do the best I can for you, or I have something else on my plate.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Mostly I prefer fandom and characters that I know. Let me know what you have, and we'll see what I can do.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
In general, I do not like crossovers or vampires. Also, I refuse to beta something that is a clear copy of another work and songfics with the lyrics in between the narrative. Stories based on songs are OK. Finally, I will absolutely NOT read anything with incest.
