Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'll generally beta anything rated T or less (except multichapter stories centered on shipping) and already has some sort of logic in them rather than just "DESU OOC RANDOMNESS YAY" but quality is subjective, of course. In short, please try your best on your own before coming to me. (Don't worry, I can usually figure out when you intentionally make something suck. But if I don't...)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great with grammar and spelling, though unless I know your grammar failure is intentional I may slip into Grammar Nazism (thankfully rare but still. Also I may let some run-on sentences off the hook, generally if there's a lone comma sitting at the end of the first part). I also tend to be critical of OOC, getting facts wrong, and logical fallacies and will gladly point these out when it happens.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some stories will make me hit the wall if I'm really not interested. Also I get annoyed if someone doesn't take my advice without explaining why and may start flame wars if I end up in a particularly bad mood. Also if you want me to beta a comedy, be warned as jokes often aren't my strong point since I tend to tell them to people who won't understand the punchline.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy epics as well as some angst fics. I also like comedies but jokes often aren't my strong points since generally a lot of the gags I come up with are in-jokes specific to a certain fandom.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
PLEASE, NO LEMON. I don't like lemon. Also, on a related note, I don't beta stories focused solely on shipping, except maybe a few oneshots. And not even that if the pairing is incestuous or pedophilic. Or just plain disturbing sometimes but I evidently lack a definition for those kinds of stories unless again, it's incestuous or pedophilic. Also nothing OC-centric. As I see it, fanfiction is made to read about someone else's characters, not your own. OCs on the side is fine, but I don't want them as the center of the story.
