Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I mainly focus on spelling and the fluency of sentences. I generally don't look into the accuracy of the grammar and used tenses - apart from illogical tense-switching - but I will if you want me to. I first read the story or chapter as a whole and then take sentence per sentence. I don't delete any of the original content, but indicate in red what I'd change. I merely give suggestions. I won't always have time to look at the story or chapter the same evening, but I try my best to do it within the week. If I can't make that either, I will let you know on beforehand.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and punctuation are my strengts, as well as fluency.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As English is not my mother tongue, I will probably never get through to the finesses of the language. I have been studying the language for years both at school as well as at home, though.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am open to any story, but of course I won't notice irregularities in content in stories on fandoms I don't know. My main interests are The L Word (mostly Tibette), Grey's Anatomy (mostly Callie/Arizona, Callie/Addie), Gossip Girl (mostly Serena/Vanessa, Blair/Vanessa and Serena/Blair), Harry Potter, The Good Wife (mostly gay Kalinda), The Vampire Diaries, The Killing, True Blood... I might forget some. The pairings between brackets are my favourites, but it doesn't mean that I won't betaread others.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't really think of any stories that I wouldn't betaread - I can only come up with topics that are porn and these aren't allowed at the site.
