Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm very meticulous, I'll go to the trouble of finding every little mistake and pointing it out/correcting it. I've usually got a decent handle on the personality and traits of characters so I can pick out any out of character lines, actions and scenes that I may come across with relative ease. I'm very big on scene and action description and if I'm confused as to what is going on because of how it's written I will point it out. My style is to take it paragraph by paragraph and section of dialouge by section of dialouge, looking at it carefully for any mistakes. I'm only looking at the description, characterization, grammer, punctuation and spelling, I don't really feel it's my place to "fix" the content of the story.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in spelling and grammer and I can generally find most of the mistakes in these areas. In regards to characterization, I feel that it's a very important component of writing fanfiction and that you should try to stay as in charcter as possible. I will point out where I feel the characterization is poor, you can decide from there whether you want to keep it that way or not. I'm not sure if this counts as a strength but I am fairly easy to get along with so don't be intimidated by some of the language in this profile.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is punctuation. I'm not awful at it but it's not something I excel in either.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta read stories that I find interesting. It's really tedious to beta something I don't like and I probably won't do as good a job at it than if I was beta reading something I was interested in. That being said, it takes a lot to conceive a plot I don't find interesting so just show it to me and more likely than not I will beta it. Moreover, I will only beta for shows/movies/anime and so forth that I'm fairly well versed in, this is mostly for your sake because if I'm beta reading for something I know nothing about it's going to be difficult for me in regards to characterization, description etc. and you might not get an as well corrected story as you could.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta read slash/yaoi, yuri, incest, shota or any M rated fanfiction works that have overtly sexual themes. I will also not beta any Character/OC fanfictions. That is my policy, like it or leave it.
