|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I can be harsh (ask my friend Eni) and I can be moderate. I tend to look at the wording of sentences and the feel, love to help out smooth plot lines or characterizations. Any blatant spelling or grammar errors, I'll be sure to point out. It is up to the author whether or not my notes and suggestions are addressed, and they can be used as a jumping point to go in whichever direction you feel like. I will always do my best to offer you suggestions on how to better word something or better scene something. Short fics I'll be able to hand back to you in a timely manner, along with WIPs. If you have a nearly finished long fic, please take note I may take longer due to other responsibilities. I only want to help and enhance your fiction to our fandom.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can spot grammar and plot hiccups, determine whether the flow of the story is going well. For certain fandoms, I can easily spot OCness and how to parallel your story to the known canon. If your characters are in a rut, I can help bring them out with situations or settings. I'm very much a muse of sorts and can be a good sounding board. I am also very knowledgeable in various kinks and only a few things I will not beta in the smut department. Also, for American fandoms, I am notorious in spotting out non-American wordings/phrasing/spellings which is important.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Alas, I still may miss the more subtle grammar mistakes. Physical action scenes or mecha based sequences are a bit hard for me to do.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love magic, romance and intrigue. Well done Hurt/Comfort are my personal faves along with AUs (though no HS ones please) and cross-over or fusion fics (where you switch out the characters from another fandom). I also love vignettes or dark and serious. A good long plot with angst as long as there's light at the end of the tunnel is also really good.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
My squicks: Mpreg, Incest that isn't due to rape, Vomit/Scat/Diapering, A/B/O, GP or BP, Human Males with Knotted genitalia, Diapering, Massive Bloodplay, Recreational Drugs like Weed being prominent in a fic, non-canon death. Pretty much everything else is a go when it comes to /br /br /br /br /br /br /br /
br /br /
I do not want to betaread dark and depressing fics, tragedies. They must have at least a hopeful ending. Nor will I read breakup fic of my preferred pairings or read my hated pairings as background in Gen or other pairingbr /br /
br /br /
Pairings I do NOT do at all, don't bother: br /br /
br /br /
Harry Potter: James/Lily, Remus/Sirius, Remus/Tonks, Harry/Ginny, Hermione/Ron... Majority of the canon pairings. br /br /
br /br /
Glee: Klaine with the only exception of them breaking up to lead way to Puckurt. Otherwise. No. Kurt/anyone else but Puck unless it leads to Puckurt. Bram, Quick, Puckitty, Puck/Joe, Pizes outside of their canon time together br /br /
br /br /
H50: McDanno with anyone else separately (ie McRollins or Danny/Rachel)
