Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So I'm going to be giving the beta-reading a test run and see how it goes. A little about me so you know who exactly you're employing to read through your services. I'm a junior English Writing major. I've been a member of Fanfiction.net since I was in middle school, so I've learned quite a few things from being here that long. Please read my newer works; I don't beta them or read them through a second time after typing them, so it's a pretty good glance at my writing skills in general. Please, dear readers, please, do not go very far down. A lot of my older stuff is pretty bad and I keep it up there for laughs, so please don't refer to any of those for an assessment of my skills.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I take pride in believing my grammar and proofreading to be pretty good; as a highschooler I would pretty much mark up all of my papers in red when doing peer revision, and I even got extra credit in a class once for being really thorough. First-writing stuff usually comes pretty easy to me as well; being a college student I've had my share of procrastinating on major papers and writing them that night without even looking through them and receiving a 97% or higher on most of them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I go quick, and I might miss some things. They'll be little things, yeah, but I've been known to rush through things pretty quickly and skip over some details. I'll be working on that as a betareader so that I can make your story better and establish a good reputation for myself.

I'm also kind of a procrastinator. I have lots of things going on in my life (school/work/family/the usual) but a lot of the time I also just sit and fudge around on the internet when I should be correcting something. I ask that you give me a deadline when you want it back, and if I miss it by a week or more give me a swift kick in the butt to get me moving.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm kind of a yaoi fan, and would love to better some BL stories. Not saying I won't do anything else, because I'll be pretty open-minded during this process. Anything from my couples list on my writer profile I think would be considered what I would prefer to work with, but it's a pretty small list so just send in a request and I'll see what I can do. If a couple is not up there, and maybe even the show/movie/book/whatever isn't either, just ask: even if I'm not familiar with it I can still work on correcting your story, but keep in mind I'm not going to know what things are so proper nouns might still go uncapitalized. Luckily we have the Internet so I can at least attempt to look it up!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not too big on betareading stories that have couples in them I do not support. On my profile you'll see couples I do support, so I ask that if you see anyone in there then I most likely will not do it. Small mentions of other couples are just fine, though. Luckily I think there are less than 20 couples there so you have a lot of free reign.

I also might make some exceptions to this rule for declining stories; an example would be someone pairing Pooh Bear and Tigger together in a story. First thing that came to mind, but I'd say no to that. If it's something I don't personally believe in, you might be out of luck. Happy to say I've run across no stories like that in the span of my life time, but you never really know.

I will take stories from every rating, but there are some things I will decline in the M section without question. Scat and intense gore I don't do too well with. Those are all I can think of, so just ask and I'll see what I can do.
