Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm Roby Carr. I'm a beta-reader. I'm a gigantic nerd.

If you ask me to beta-read for you, I will go the distance. I'm picky. I can be critical. I love reading fanfiction though and I love talking to other people about their fanfiction. I prefer to keep in contact with the authors I beta for. I want you to respond to my critiques with questions and explanations. I think that we should both have free reign to say what we want.

If you have no intention of making any of the changes I suggest, GTFO. When I make the effort to beta-read your story, I expect that you actually want to improve your story.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
1. Original characters. I absolutely love OCs, but I put them through the gauntlet. Everyone hates a Mary Sue and you don't really want to write one, do you? Let's work together to make your character a likable original character who isn't a Mary Sue.

2. Sentence flow. I read fic aloud when I beta. It helps me to note when something just doesn't sound right.

3. Plot, storyline, cliches, climax, exposition. The most important part of your fic isn't the characters. It's the story that you're telling. Be unpredictable. We can make it a good one.

4. Characterization. Remember the canon characters? The ones that made us fall in love with our fandom. Keep them in character.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
1. Spelling and grammar. This isn't a weakness of mine. I just expect that you already read through the story for mistakes. Also, spell check. I'm not going to be keeping a close eye on this.

2. Dialogue. I might be able to offer suggestions of how something should sound, but I'm not good at coming up with witty banter for your characters.

3. Continuity. I'm willing to research into the fandom to make sure that the fic makes sense. In general though, I tend to miss points in this area.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Again, I really enjoy original characters. They make me smile. Also, I'm great at keeping them in line.

I like long fic and most one-shots. I'm not going to bother beta-reading your 100-word vignette though.

I prefer that when you contact me, you'll have already finished your story. I know that this isn't the way most people write, but if your story is complete (or even if you send me an outline of the story), I will be able to serve you better.

I'll beta for any story, whether or not I'm familiar with the fandom. I can research.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If you are going to post the work on fanfiction.net, do not break the Terms of Service. I do not condone this behavior. If it will be posted elsewhere, I'm willing to negotiate beta-reading.
