Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm currently studying Biology at my local university, but I have completed all basic English courses, so I do have a background when it comes to grammar and enhancing language. I know I'm not your strongest choice, but all I ask is that you give me a chance. I can write. I am willing to beta stories of all maturity levels and genres, all though my favorite genres are comedy and romance. I do reserve the right to say no to being a beta to your story though.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have strong background with grammar. I can be very speedy at getting your story read and edited. I do not judge anything you put into your story. I do not discriminate against sexual orientation, writing ability, maturity level, mental or physical disabilites, or any other struggles. I myself have a form of high- function Autism, also known as Asperger's Syndrome. However, the good thing about my Asperger's Syndrome is that I am able to memorize just about anything and I am very creative. I'm also not afraid to tell you what I think, but I will do it in the most polite way possible.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While I do have a strong knowledge for grammar, I do miss some things, though that is rare. I also do have a hard time with spelling sometimes. I do have a busy agenda with college. I am involved in the zoology club and I am the vice president of microbiology club, so I do have to make sure I have time for those. Plus, I do have martial arts 2-3 days a week. So my time is limited. I can also be hard headed.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
There are only four book series that I will beta for. I will only beta for The Hunger Games trilogy, The Divergent Trilogy, The Delirium Trilogy, and The Across the Universe Trilogy. At this point, the only movie I will beta for is the 2015 Descendents movie. Also, I do have specific characters that I will read about. I only THG fanfics that involve Katniss, Peeta, Katniss and Peeta's children, Cato, Clove, and Cato and Clove's children if your story has them. In the Divergent Trilogy I will only read stories with the paring of Tris and Tobias. In The Delirium Trilogy, I will only read stories with the parings of Lena and Alex. For The Across The Universe Trilogy, there really isn't anything else but Amy and Elder. In Descendents, I only read about Ben & Mal. Important note: I will not read any Alternative Universes such as: characters being in high school or college, being at a party (unless the party fits the original canon well). However, I will read Alternate endings if they fit the cannon. I do not mind if you rewrite parts of a story and make it go a different direction. I just want it to stay in cannon. So in other words, I"m picky.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Like I said, I will not read any Alternative Universes such as: characters being in high school or college, being at a party (unless the party fits the original canon well). I also will not read stories with any other pairings except for the ones I mentioned above. This also means that I will not beta for any other categories of fanfics.
