Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Among my friends, I am known as being obsessed with grammar, spelling, books, and using big words. I am the first person anyone in my class looks to for any kind of grammatical question. I have been called a Walking Dictionary. So, basically, that's my deal.

I don't want to have a really stuffy relationship with you. I want to be informal and friendly; it's easier to communicate and more fun that way.

I'll be better at grammar/spelling, but I also have a pretty good sense of what readers will want. Please don't critique my critiquing, I'm just being honest.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As was earlier stated, I excel at the more physical aspects of betareading. I tend to find errors in my teacher, in published books, and in my SAT practice booklet (no, really). However, I also have a good idea of what other readers will like. I actually have a genuine sense of humor, so don't be afraid to send me something you think is goofy or random. I can do goofy or random. I LOVE goofy or random. I can do serious though, too. I can read anything from St. Fang of Boredom to Shakespeare.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've been told that I can be too harsh. I don't sugar-coat it. I've also been told that I'm way too persnickety.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer FanFictions with a solid plot and few OCs. Try and stick to more conventional relationships, too, please. I beta Maximum Ride, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Benedict Society, City of Ember, and Underland Chronicles, among others. If you aren't sure if I've read the book your fanfic is about, PM me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I despise fluff. It makes me want to hurl. I mean, a little fluff is okay, but the real, hardcore fluff I can't stand. Not a ginormous fan of heavy romance, either, but I can deal with that. I can't do anything with even a subtle risque undertone. Don't give me any FangxIggy, DracoxHarry, LukexPercy or the like. If you try to make me beta something OOC, I will sneak into your room at night and attack you with a rusty spork. Consider yourself warned.
