Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am patient (mostly) and encouraging (very). People tend to learn best with positive reinforcement, as apposed to harsh words. I just want to help you. I find great stories, and authors who just need a little encouragement to get that spark burning again. I am on fanfic at least four times a week. Give me a good story, I help you finish it. :)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My primary job is going to be editing and word substitution. I'm great at spotting out most spelling, grammar, word usage, punctuation, and capitalization errors (tense switchings too, if coerced). I also have a vast mental thesaurus and will offer a few possible word choices to substitute a given word. Example: Bob sat(dropped, collapsed, relaxed, plopped) in his chair and sat(laid, set, placed,) his elbows atop the armrests./ That is a horrible example, but you get the idea. I offer words, but it is your choice what you ultimately decide to use. br /

Now, with all that said, I am also rather good at helping to brainstorm. Running out of ideas? Let's throw ourselves a brainstorming party! xD

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not great with romance, and crossovers tend to give me headaches. I also can not translate languages to save my life. Lets stick mostly to English here people. My medical knowledge is only slightly above average, most of my information on any un-known-to-me subject comes from Google. I won't be much of a fact checker.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
TMNT stories, I like Leonardo's best. 'Nuff said. Next Avengers, I like stories with Tony in them, and no romance at all, but it doesn't HAVE to have Tony (as long as it isn't about Thor or Cap, I'm happy.) White Collar: I love Neal, almost any kind of whump for him is most pleasurable to me. xD I love to torture him. Love moments when Peter treats Neal like a son or brother. But no de-aged Neal stories. Common Law: Wes is my favorite, but I like Travis too. I don't care if they are arguing or getting along, so long as they aren't kissing, teenagers, or werewolves, etc.

Got another kind in mind? Send me an offer. If it is something I like, I might just take you up on it.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash; incest/t-cest; pretty much all cannonXOC and most romance stories in general, though I am more flexible on that one if I think the story/author is good.

Gore and blood and torture do not put me off. A story with depth, and emotion are essential. If a story can't hold my attention, there is no point reading it.
