|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Message me with a summary and what you want and I'll reply. I can work with existing stories, you can DocX them to me or we can work something out. I am fairly quick at getting chapters checked if you are working with an ongoing story and you can set deadlines which I'll try to meet. Generally what I will do when you send me a chapter is: Edit the mistakes, give my view of the chapter, anything that jumps out at me that I think you should do to improve. You can ask me to do more, if you want. Predominantly I will go through checking grammar, spelling and paragraphing as thoroughly as I can and I will also check for accidental unintentional deviants from the original story - especially important in Lord of the Rings. (if you wish) I can also write notes about ideas for adding more description and/or prose. I can also tell you if you are neglecting certain characters or my personal view on what the reader wants to read at certain points. I can help you with plot ideas and such. I can do research if you want me to. I'm thorough. If you don't like constructive criticism, then I'm not the person to talk to.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with grammar and spelling. I'd like to think I am good at descriptive work and also vocabulary. I am also good at giving my own personal impression and feedback for the story/plot. I am also an okay poet and can help there too if needed. I will gladly help you become a BETTER writer, if you want me to. I WILL tell you want you're doing wrong. I also have extensive knowledge of Tolkien's world, including the history, races. I can translate English to Sindarin and Quenyan well, and Rohirric and Black Speech if I have to - as much as is possible with the resources. I also have quite a lot of background knowledge for Harry Potter too and other fandoms.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm always polite, but I may not always be nice. Sometimes I'm over helpful.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy romance, but not necessarily. I'm only willing to help with small to mid range, so 1k-40k. I would prefer it if you have at least some experience writing and can take constructive criticism. Slash/het, all fine. As long as it's a fandom I know, all good.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't want to do over 100,000 and I won't do incest or when noncon somehow turns into romance. I wont do PWPs. I also won't do separate generation pairings like Hermione/Remus unless there is time travel or they are nearer to the same age somehow. I'm also no fan of Mary-Sues, OC's I don't mind but if you do have an OC it should be developed.
