|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My name is Ashleigh. I'm 21 years old. I love reading fanfiction and engaging with others.
I focus on grammar, spelling and punctuation. I can also check for plotholes, Mary Sues, bad characterisation and word choices.
I expect that anyone who engages my services will contact me quickly to discuss what they would like to get out of having their work read by me. I want to know everything about your story: a summary, the genre, the rating, any pairings, and what you specifically want me to look for.
I also want it known that I am not a spell check. I expect that you will have run the spell checker on your story before sending it to me. It's a waste of my time to have to correct these errors, when I could be focusing on more important parts.
I am perfectly happy to betaread crossovers and stories that involve abuse, rape and torture. I'll also help with OC characterisation.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a great eye for continuity, grammar and spelling errors. I'm an excellent proofreader with lots of experience. I take my time with the work of others, so as to provide the best result.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I can take a little too much time with my work. I can also be a bit critical, so if I'm being rude or over the top, just tell me.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't have any particular preference, but I'm better at romance and drama.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There are a few things included in stories that automatically turns me off, and I will not read them.
Homophobia, Racism, other Discrimination: I absolutely loathe stories and people who feel that some race, sexuality, etc is evil and must be wiped off the Earth.
I prefer to avoid stories that include a fan being sucked into a fandom, or a real life person. These stories are a big annoyance of mine.
I don't beta fluff stories. That kind of sappy, no-plot romance bugs me so please don't request that of me.
I can't beta any fandoms that I am unfamiliar with. There's no way I'd be of any help if I don't know what I'm talking about.
I can't read anything in second person. It just confuses me and I feel like I should be in a choose your own adventure story.
