|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. I'm Scruby. I have a BA in English Literature and education and a diploma in translation and editing. I work as a translator, editor and English teacher. English isn't my first language, but I spend a lot of time dealing with it. Editing is one of my jobs and I have a lot of experience in it, so hopefully English not being my first language won't scare you away. (:
As for betaing style, it depends on you if you want me to to fix spelling mistakes or give suggestions as well. I can do both, though I feel more comfortable with just fixing mistakes as I don't want to impose my preferences on you.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can work with fandoms I'm not into because I'm used to editing things which are not in my areas. I've done a lot of subtitling work, sometimes it's shows I love and sometimes not, but I always try to do my best. The English I use is more on the British side, but I'm good at American English as well. I've OCD so I'm very pedantic. I look over a text a few times to make sure everything is okay.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As I said, English isn't my first language. Also, OCD helps do a good job, but it can also be a problem sometimes. I'm not the best at telling people bad things, I don't like to anger people, so that's why I'm more into the fixing mistakes kind of betaing than the giving suggestions kind.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Sherlock is my main fandom, but I can beta other things as well.
When it comes to Sherlock, I rather it be Johnlock or general.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
When it comes to Sherlock, I won't do Sherlock or John with someone else, unless it ends with Johnlock.
