Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have several years experience in fanfiction and I've written works myself of 140,000 words. I'm looking to get onto a longer project. I will give constructive criticism and be sensitive when giving feedback. My specialities are checking canon-compliance, German language (although I am a native English speaker), historical accuracy and British culture. You will have to accommodate any delays I might have in giving feedback, but there shouldn't be many.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I know all the lore of all my fandoms, so I'll be happy to check/alter for canon-compliance (hello Metal Gear Solid - but I also mean across media, e.g. read all the Hannibal books, familiar with most X-Men comics). I'm also an effective proof-reader and proficient in German, so if you want to include some in your stories I can help with that. I have a good grasp of literary theory, so I'm always willing to help you incorporate some nice post-modern conventions. Perhaps most importantly I'm very educated on metal health and LGBT groups, so I can make sure your representation is accurate and not offensive. Also since I live in the UK I can offer accurate information on what it's like over here. Spelling/grammar are a /

br /

If you want to write historical fiction then I'll be very helpful in terms of historical accuracy since that's what I study. Especially 20c Europe. I also study computer science at a high level, so I can make sure your "hacking" etc. is realistic.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm asexual and find it difficult to read/write smut, so I won't be much help with that. My native English is British, and whilst I'll try to stick with whatever spellings you use I may slip up.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like LGBT or feminist stories and ones with a non-linear narrative or just higher brow in general (especially deconstruction), but they're not a requirement. Not a big fan of canon character/OC, but if it's good enough it won't be a problem.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta-read stories which convey an offensive message. I try to avoid lemon-based stories, but some smut in the middle would be fine although I won't be much help with it. Any kind of length is usually fine, but I would prefer over 2000 words and would like to get involved with a long-term story.
