|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been apart of the FanFiction community for almost two years now (this is my second account) and I have experience as both a writer and a reader. I am also an International Baccalaureate student and as a result, have developed analytical skills and a work ethic for getting things done by a specified deadline. NOTE: I do have a life outside of the internet, which is slightly irrelevant to this topic but it does explain ahead that if I fall under too much pressure around exams (late March - Early June) I may not be on FanFiction. However, if I am Beta Reading for you, I will give you a two-week notice so that you may find a replacement Beta Reader.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to think that spelling and grammar on my two strengths. It has become a pet peeve of mine to see misspelled or misused words in a story or incorrect grammar in a story. How many times has something like that turned you off from a story? I have read many stories that have amazing plots and potentials, but the writer just can't get past their weak use of language and continuous errors. I have been told (whether it be truthful or just false words of encouragement) that I have a way of keeping characters in my own fanfiction "in-character". If that is true, then I take pride in it. There is nothing I like more than a FanFiction that seems almost like the show itself. While everyone reads FanFiction for their own personal reasons; mine is for canon-like purposes. When I read, I like being able to have a clear vision of what is going on as if I were actually watching an episode/movie.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If you have read any of my stories then you have a better idea of my weaknesses. I honestly cannot say what my weaknesses are because I'm blinded to anything negative in my stories. I post my stories feeling as though I have done the best I could and gone through enough drafts to catch any mistakes. When I apply for Beta's I check through at least one of their currently done stories to see for myself what the strengths and weaknesses are. I promise I am not attempting to get readers to my own stories. I genuinely would rather not be judged on my own work. However, that is what I do when I search for a Beta.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm game for just about anything you want to throw at me. While I love romance, humor, and friendship for myself (angst as well, but when I write angst people just get depressed apparently), I have read almost every other genre. At this moment I am only Beta Reading for the Hart of Dixie Fandom and I have a rather amorous predilection for stories involving Wade and Zoe. So I would prefer a Zade story to Beta. I can also roll with George and Lemon or Lavon and Lemon also.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not one for sexual lemons/slash/femslash. Sorry.
