Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love analyzing fanfiction, and trying to get it right. I try finding the fics that are wonderful, but every time I read a fanfiction, I'm in the process of mentally breaking it down in my head: Is this good? Ah, that's very 'nope'. Erk, they spelled that character's name wrong. Op, that contradicts canon. I like writing an overall mini-essay on how something doesn't work, rather than inserting notes here and there. I'm also currently in-school to become an editor, so this is great practice for me, and I want to be able to edit as much as I can. My expectations? Expect me to tear things apart - I'll be nice, but you might have to rewrite everything. I want to dissect your plot, your OCs, your characterization, edit your grammar, everything. If you're not up for some harshness and lots of tweaking, I'm probably not the one you want. Just shoot me off a PM if you want to discuss the possibility of me beta-ing!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I stated, I'm the best at ensuring that fics are canonical, or, if they're AUs, consistent. I can tell you if part of what you wrote contradicts canon, or if a character wouldn't act that way and why, and why that backstory from the comics/book actually doesn't make sense with this version. I've read nearly everything for almost all of the things I'm willing to beta, so this is my preferred. Also, analyzing OCs: I can help you make them good, solid characters, and not Mary Sues.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar and spelling? I can definitely do it, but I'm not going to catch everything, and it's not my preferred beta-reading. I'll definitely do it, though, but I'm liable to miss something. I'll point out and fix what I can get, but the overall scheme of things is more my forte.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
None in particular. I'll read and beta pretty much everything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not super fond of gory and/or smut-filled fanfictions, but I will read them and beta them. I just don't prefer it.
