Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
The way I see it, the job of a beta is to bring out the best in their alpha. The very best betas accept their alphas for who they are, but leave them better than they found them. We try to bring out the best in other people. I'll never be a great beta, but I promise I'll try as hard as I can to be a good one.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good on spelling and grammar, and sentence flow. I think I have a good sense of punctuation and where it should and should not go. The technical side of things, basically.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm a grammar and spelling perfectionist, and I'll pick up on little things that I think would make the story just that bit better but other people think are fine. Also, I can't write action scenes for love nor money. And I frequently disregard plots entirely.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
In multi-chapters, I like stories that immediately make me want to read more. I'm a sucker for fluff/bonding/sweetness/adorableness, and I don't mind plotless fics at all, if they're written well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like femslash, but I'll read anything slash or hetero. I'm fine with a bit of kissing, but anything past third base isn't my cup of tea at all.
