Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love reading, and will gladly review any story: romance, drama, adventure, and comedy will all be examined and treated equally.

This warning might be more appropriate under 'Not My Cup of Tea', but it's something I'm completely serious about: Character Favoritism on the author's side is something I recommend everyone be very wary of. It's one thing to shine the spotlight on your favorite characters, but it's another thing entirely if that character starts to have no logical limitations. No single character should ever undergo an overnight transformation from forgettable filler to primary love interest(I'm looking at you, Rowling). No character shall ever go from soulless evil to reformed do-gooder. And absolutely nobody shall ever mistake a petty, disrespectful, spiteful scumbag for 'hot', or a 'bad boy'. That only makes said character a dick. Even Rowling didn't get that one wrong, so you certainly shouldn't.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and punctuation are my strong suits. I'll catch all the errors your spell-checker won't. I'm also able to spot otherwise-negligible errors(continuity and such), and occasionally might even chime in with a few ideas.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I won't be able to help you with your writing style at all. If you're not very descriptive, we're both in the same boat. Same with unfunny comedies, or drama that simply isn't dramatic.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Big chapters give me more to work with at once. Whether you're writing a one-shot, novella, or epic, I'd prefer something that takes me longer than five minutes to read.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Although I normally do not 'ship' slash(yaoi) couples, if I do indeed read such stories, I will almost certainly go over each and every paragraph with a fine-toothed comb, just looking for things to nitpick. If you're sensitive and don't take criticism well, we're not gonna be a dream team.

Also, if the protagonist is being coupled with a character that isn't a solid, dependable and realistic relationship partner, I will also go at the story with the intention to kill. If it survives, be proud of what you wrote.
