Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta reader, I mainly check over spelling and grammar. I'll also highlight and discuss with you changes that I'd personally make to the narrative - in other words, I'll act as a spell checker and a sounding board, and I'll offer my own ideas also. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal, no?

If you wish to 'acquire my services', you'll have to pique my interest. I don't mind clichés as long as it's a (relatively) fresh take on one - put your own spin on it. I also like to see originality, and don't mind many things often hated (such as 'mary-sues' etc.)

If I beta read your story, it'll probably end up fairly different to the original. Not radically different, mind you - it'll just have my spin on it, as well as your own. This is, of course, assuming that you use all of my changes.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with spelling and grammar. I'm also good at finding plot holes or just general logical flaws in your writing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If you're writing for the pleasure of the audience, I may not be so great at spotting things people may not like (such as favoured characters dying, a main character being ridiculously overpowered, etc.) as my list of likes/dislikes is quite unique.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Of Harry Potter stories, I prefer to beta those that deviate quite far from canon. In general, do tend to prefer 'alternate universe' (or AU) fanfiction.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash. Whilst I won't explicitly refuse to beta slash stories, I will say that me doing so is highly unlikely. That kind of thing just makes a heterosexual guy like me uncomfortable, I'm afraid.
