|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have beta'd six stories: three Harry Potter stories, two Life With Derek stories, and one Gossip Girl story. I love editing and usually find it easier than writing. I'm pretty much a TV addict, so I know a wide variety of shows very well. I find myself reading Harry Potter fanfiction way more than I'd like to admit, so I have a good idea of what's out there. I will point out all mistakes, but also try to focus on positive feedback about any plot developments. I am currently an undergraduate college student in the US, and although I'm majoring in neuroscience, I still greatly enjoy writing. I used to write stories myself, way back when, but I find endings too tough to write. I love a good story, so bring it on!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Of course when reading a story as a beta I focus on spelling and grammar. I am a total grammar nazi, so you'll never have to worry about the technical aspect of your story. As a reader, I've found it important that characters stay true to themselves. So if I find myself reading and "not believing" the story, I'll let you know. I am a great idea person, and I always want more quickly, so I'll respond as soon as possible.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta a subject that I know well. Those are Fringe, Lie to Me, Bones, Law and Order SVU, Doctor Who, Life With Derek, HARRY POTTER, The Hunger Games, Degrassi, Big Bang Theory, Beverly Hills 90210, Veronica Mars, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me, Charmed, Eureka, The X-files, Cougar Town, Human Target, Pretty Little Liars, Pysch, White Collar, Friends, Gossip Girl, Covert Affairs, Revenge, Happy Endings, Futurama, Scrubs, That 70s Show, My Mad Fat Diary, Misfits, Greek, House M.D., Medium, Psych, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Orange is the New Black, Bridget Jones, How I Met Your Mother, Lost, Parks and Recreation, Don't Trust the B in Apt 23, Dawson's Creek, Bones, Dexter, Dollhouse, 30 Rock, Drop Dead Diva, H2o (both versions), and The Killing. That is just a list of TV shows (except for HP and HG because I just love them), so if you don't see your topic on there, still message me! I didn't put everything down. I like all genres and will help out whoever needs it.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I enjoy all genres and will usually try any pairing once.
But, I am very devoted to certain pairings when it comes to Harry Potter, so here's a list of the pairings I will NOT do. Hermione/McGonnagall, Hermione/Bellatrix, Hermione/Lucius, Harry/Ron, and Hermione/Harry. I also stopped watching Degrassi after Emma Nelson left, so if you do not know who that is (best character ever) I can't help you. I haven't seen the endings of House M.D., Dexter, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Eureka, and the X-files so please no spoilers!
