Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
If you are to acquire my services (oh, I've always wanted to use that), I have certain expectations. Such as, you should know about grammar (i.e. periods, capitalization, and dnt tlk lik dis!1!), you are respectful of any opinions I may have about your story, and that your story is, well...up to par with my expectation of quality. As in, I don't want a story like "and then Hermione dumped Ron cuz she never liked him anyway and went with Draco because he had nice hair and he randomly loved her now because he was actually really nice and the two rode off into the sunset on a shining white horse and lived happily ever after. The end." br /br /br /

I think you get the point. br /br /br /

I don't mean that your story has to be publication-ready––just that it has to have at least a semblance of plot and characterization. br /br /br /

I have a horrible, horrible case of Chronic Procrastination, so if you do happen to enlist me as a beta, you should probably give me a deadline, since I probably wouldn't get anything done otherwise. br /br /br /

I'll look through your story (I'd prefer a Word document, so I can print it out and bring out my red pen), and add my comments/corrections in red. That's...it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Fairly good at spotting grammar/spelling mistakes (much to the chagrin of my friends and family) br /br /br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /br /

Good at keeping things consistent (don't know if it shows in my work; it's easier to find inconsistency in others' stories, really.)br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm honest, so if I don't like something, I'll point it out and let you know.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not good at getting editing done quickly, so I may take some time. br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

Sometimes, I ramble, and may not be able to get my point across as well as I'd like. /br /br /

Sometimes, I get a bit too nitpick-y, or point out one too many flaws––I'm not a forgiving critic. Though I'd never bash a story/author, or use mean words, or be uncivil, I tend to pick a story apart at the seams and point out all that I think is wrong with it, and sometimes, people aren't prepared for that.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll beta anything. M (even NC-17, though doesn't allow that), het, slash, femmslash, pwp, threesomes, angst, drama, humor, crack––I've read it all, and am willing to beta it, too.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There isn't anything I won't betaread.
