Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta-read a story, I read through once for any major spelling, tense, punctuation, or grammar errors. I then go back and check the content - to see if it flows, makes sense with canon, and to see if the characters are, well, in character.

I try to have all 'fics proofed and ready for the author as quickly as possible, but I will take as much time as needed to make sure that a 'fic is completely ready to be published.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
On the technical side, I'm very good at spotting grammatical errors as well as misuse of punctuation, misspellings, and irregular tenses. I know my fandoms very well, and I have a great attention to details.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My great attention to details is also my downfall. I sometimes tend to get too caught up in accuracy instead of what works for the story. If this is the case, feel free to kindly tell me to shut my trap.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta pretty much anything, regardless of the pairing, setting, or rating...
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not like "alternate universe" stories, and while I won't refuse anyone, I would take another 'fic before an AU 'fic.
