Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I mainly enjoy stories like Harry Potter, Merlin or McFly (Just My Luck) so I would be most useful to you if you're writing one of these. I have written a rather successful McFly fanfiction myself so I am able to help build on any ideas that need developing during one of those stories. However I prefer the Harry Potter fanfictions the most as I am something of an expert in that particular area. I also am a big fan of The Mortal Instruments. I don't mind stories about The Hunger Games either.

I will look over the work you send me and will check the grammer and spelling and such. But I can also perform tasks such as commenting on characters/events/plots if you request it. Also if you have writers block or simply need someone to check an idea with before you start writing, I will talk to you and offer you advice.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a rather successful McFly story that has been getting frequent reviews of praise.

I have read all of the Harry Potter books and watched all of the films. I have also been to the Warner Brothers Studio Tour so you can use my knowledge from that area. Futhermore, I own Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them, Quidditch Through the Ages and The Tales of The Beedle and the Bard.

I have been a dedicated McFly fan for the past three/four years and have met them so I know a lot about them that you could use. I have also read Unsaid Things.

I have read all three of The Hunger Games books and I possess The Hunger Games Companion.

I have watched every episode of Merlin and am currently re-watching them.

I have read all of The Mortal Instruments books-including The Infernal Devices series and the Codex.

I achieved a high A grade in my imaginative writing assessment in English Language in 2012 so I can only have improved right? ;)

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I read the Harry Potter books quite late in life due to my parents not being big readers and not encouraging me to read for recreation purposes. But I watched all of the films throughout my childhood and then caught up with all of the books in my early teens.

Occasionally I can be late uploading my own stories but I tend to improve upon that when I know that someone is expecting me to deliver something quickly.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter is my main area. But concerning the deeper section of Harry Potter, I am quite open and willing to read/beta almost anything. My favourites are Dramione fanfictions but I'm not against Romione or anything so feel free to approach me with one of your Romione stories even if it's totally against Draco ;)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I tend to find stories that have anything to do with Snape being in some form of relationship with any student rather creepy-no offence if that's your thing-but I don't know, I just can't read them without feeling quite uncomfortable.
