Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Basically, what I would do as a beta would be to improve your grammar and spelling. I am very flexible when it comes to characterisations, although there are some lines you shouldn't cross, so if you're looking to improve that I won't be much help. br /br /br /

How I work? You would send me a text, preferably with a short summary so I know what I'm reading but I can do without if necessary. I would then read that text and make alterations to grammar, spelling and sentence stucturing before sending it back to you. It's up to you what you do with the advice I give, I'm not going to force you to follow it if you think your way is better. :)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammar have always been my strengths. I am very strict about this, even in my own stories. I'll reread them about 5 times before I post them to be sure there aren't any mistakes left. If you're from America, or use American spelling, I will correct those words that differ from British /br /br /

If I don't agree with the sentence structuring there is a chance I might rewrite a bit of your story to see what you make of the changes. I used to work for my school newspaper before I graduated so I know how to beta other peoples work without changing the essential content of it. Once again, if you don't like the changes I make I won't hold it against you. It's your story so you're free to do whatever you like with it.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am not good at character development. It's the main problem I always have while writing and the biggest reason that so far I tend to go for one-shots or very specific situations that require certain reactions. I can work on a story for weeks and then just delete it and go back to the beginning because the characters aren't going where I want them to go, or they're just not going anywhere at all. If you're looking for help in this departement I suggest you look for someone else.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I always prefer stories with strong emotions in them. It's important that you get a look at what the characters are really thinking and feeling, otherwise things might be a bit dull. Theme-wise, I enjoy anything with romance in it, even if it's only a hint, but I'm not going to say I won't do anything else. If you have an action-packed thriller I'll still read it, I'll just end up seeing a lot of subtext in it. :)br /br /br /

Also, it would probably be best if I know the fandom you're writing about. I read a lot and I watch a lot of television, so if you're not sure about it just send me a PM and I'll let you know. You might give me an idea about which books to read next.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Crack-fics I will not do. Stories that have nothing to do with the original except for the character names and physical descriptions. For example, I recently came across a story where someone from Harry Potter was floating around space and kicking planets in half. I'm sorry, but that has nothing to do with the original and I refuse to read anything like that.
