|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Nitpicky. Conventions, spelling, and to an almost equal extent, grammar. I highly enjoy editing, whether it be my own work or someone else's, and though I may be critical it is only because I want to see the best finished product possible. Any area that I have checked in my beta preferences I would be happy to look over. I am familiar with these fandoms and most of the characters within and can help not only with grammar and conventions but with plot, characterization, etc. should someone request it. Drafts sent to me should be thoroughly checked over. I am not your English teacher or your spell check.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Possessing of some decent skills when dealing with sentence structure, although I am certainly not infallible. Basically all this means is I'm good at spotting awkward sentences. Among my friends, I am known for my famously diverse vocabulary. I could certainly spice up some of your adjectives if you feel they're wanting. I think that my biggest strength while editing, however, is my default fine-tooth comb setting: every sentence, every line, every word gets a thorough checking.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
To be quite honest, I have a lot of drains on my time. Not so much now, it being summer, but during school it is all I can do to keep up with my own fics. I mentioned sentence fluency as one of my skills above; however, it is also one of my weaknesses in my own writing. How's that for a contradiction? I know I have other weaknesses. I'm just blanking at the moment. (In all seriousness, though. I have weaknesses.)
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have a certain fondness for slash, but I will beta het just as happily. Really, I'm pretty open. Anything goes.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't read smut or unnecessary sex, so why would I beta for it? I'm leaving the "M" rating open, but don't make me regret it. If your story *really* requires a scene like this, let me know ahead of time, and I'll see how I feel. Short chapters under 5,000 words are p. much all I can manage. Do NOT send me something in a 20,000 word block. And use discretion when writing AUs. I'm not going to beta a SH crossover in which Watson becomes king of the fairies and Holmes gets high off of the fairy-mushrooms. And, oh. No high school AUs, for the love of god.
