Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I beta, but I do so sparingly owing to time constraints. If you're in my fandoms or similar fandoms, so much the better. The works for which I'm listed aren't exclusive in any way, nor do they represent all of my interests: I'm open to betaing outside of those as long as I know the canon or as long as you don't mind canon-blind critiques - but the listed works are a working barometer of where my interests lie and what my preferred tones and themes are.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at a crisp, well-told story. I value action and characterization over description. I am good at SPAG and fact-checking. I have a good eye for cliches and OOC characters, provided I know the fandom. I'm American, but have lived internationally and have a pretty decent recall thereof.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't like unnecessary description; I will skim if I have to. Don't expect much critique on your entirely descriptive piece unless it's descriptive in a new and interesting way. I am a perfectionist, and I aim for a thorough critique. Expect some length to my comments.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like action and adventure, mysteries, and fun twists to canon. I don't care much for OCs in my fandoms. If used, they should be used with discretion, and they should earn their keep.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
PWP (especially if the characters are OOC), endless angst without a plot, basically anything that doesn't have a storyline to it. Not a fan of OC-driven stuff, especially where the OC is an author insert. Please do your research so I don't have to. Stories condoning bestiality, necrophilia, pedophilia, or rape are off-limits, and real-person fanfic is generally strange for me to read.
