Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey, y'all! When we say 'betareader' I mean it pretty literally. I'll be happy to be a 'second-reader' who shares their opinion before you put your story up. As far as editing goes, I am not a grammar aficionado and I live for SpellCheck. However, my vocabulary is fairly decent and I can serve as a sort of living thesaurus if you think you're in need of some syntax variation. I love reading and I'm up for just about any type of story. I check email regularly, so feel free to drop me a line and I'll read over what you have and give you initial feedback whether we end up working together or not. : D
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As mentioned before, I'm good with basic grammar and I'm great with word choice. My main, focus, however will be my thoughts on the story, how I think you can improve characters and plot, etc... I'm killer for canon and I can spot ooc-ness fairly well. I can also help with expanding past just-dialog stories. If that's what your looking for, I'm your girl.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Alas, my spelling really is quite poor compared with other betas and my grammar is not pristine. However, don't take my word for it. Look over my stories to get an idea about what my abilities are. It's likely the first few chapters are un-betad.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a big reader and I'll read about anything. However, I adore stories with a good plot. Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, action, adventure, angst, and romance are all well in the clear zone for me. I read slash, and straight, pairings for any fandom (free love, y'all ; D). I've listed animes/mangas/books I know best, but if you have other stories and just want a read over, I'm happy to oblige.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Supper Happy Fluff is something I have trouble swallowing. That and dumb-humor (Will Ferrell-type humor). Send me the story anyway and I'll look it over, but if I really don't think I can take it we'll both have to move on.
