Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a person who loves to read; I am very good at delivering constructive criticism. However, I expect a person who I read for to accept my feedback, and to not take my feedback personally, but rather to view it as a critique of an element of his or her work. I hope I can receive many opportunities as a beta reader!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at proofreading for grammatical errors and for helping people to find more erudite diction to use in their writing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness as a writer is that my writing is frequently too verbose, and that I am a very repetitive writer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta-read for fanfiction subjects that I am more knowledgeable about/ areas that I myself read. My main areas of interest are Sherlock, NCIS, Supernatural, Bones, Pride and Prejudice, The Walking Dead, Downton Abbey, Thor, Star Trek, Avengers, Hunger Games, Parade's End, and Harry Potter. I enjoy a good romance or action/adventure story. I also like reading stories that have a family plotline (I love me some babies!). I ship Tiva, McAbby, Dean/OFC, Sam/Jess or OFC, Darcy/Elizabeth, Bingley/Jane, Ron/Hermione, Harry/Ginny, Sherlock/Molly, Thor/Jane, Tony/Pepper, Loki/Sigyn, Loki/OFC, Peeta/Katniss, Gale/Madge, Daryl/Carol, Matthew/Mary, Sybil/Tom. Nothing too crazy here! I will beta smut stories, but I prefer if they are not PWP stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not into really depressing stories- occasional tragedy is acceptable, but nonstop tragedy is a bit too much for me to handle. I don't like femslash fanfics- I'm a full supporter of gay rights, but femslash just isn't my thing. I'm not really into the gaming/manga comics scene, so I'm probably not the best person to read these. I will NOT read any Supernatural Wincest fics.
