Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta, I'll do a few different things.

1) I'll let you know how your story matches up with your intent. For example, if you're going for a drama, I'll let you know if it's too fluffy. 2) If your characters are too OOC, I'm going to call you out on it and make suggestions. 3) I'll make a couple of suggestions of where to take the story, if it's a multific. 4) I will check your grammar. And double-check it. And possibly triple-check it. I'm a stickler for grammar. 5) If you send me something that is so ridiculously rude or disrespectful that I personally cannot condone being associated with, I will let you know and consider terminating our writing relationship.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at delving into characters, especially the psychology of said characters. I have a very detailed style of writing in my own work, and I like seeing attentiveness when it comes to stories. I am also very detail-oriented when it comes to grammar. In general, I stick to my convictions and won't be the type of beta that just says, "Amazing job, nothing for me to do." In writing, there is always room for improvement.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a beta, I stick to my convictions, but I sometimes need a little time to figure out exactly what those convictions are. People have told me that I can sometimes nitpick, although I try not to. Also, time constraints may occasionally be an issue.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta multifics or longish oneshots, although I'll consider poetry as well, though I don't like critiquing poetry (to me it's a form of therapy). Romance, suspense, drama, angst, and hurt/comfort are what I love. I'll read an occasional humor, too; I'm not completely closed to that. I usually have certain ships I'll stick to, but I'm open to a little change...to a certain extent. For example, I'm not completely opposed to slash or a slightly weird couple, but I'll only beta it or write it if it makes sense within the context of the actual story, show, movie, etc.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will NOT betaread crackfics. Under any circumstance. I personally see no use for them. They can be fun to write, but they're not very fun for me to read. Also, I love poetry, but I don't beta it because I believe that a poem is perfect for a specific moment. You can't change the moment, therefore you can't change the poem. Third, if the ship is too out there (and possibly a little gross), I might refuse. (Ex: no Ziva/Gibbs, Abby/Gibbs, Tony/Kim, Cam/Zack, etc.)
