Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My beta 'style' isn't so specific as I do this, this and this. I won't read your work on the sole task of looking out spelling/grammar issues on the assumption that I am only looking for those things and when I find a continuity issue I should just overlook it because my job/role is to isolate spelling/grammar. I will consider betareading anything so please don't be shy and contact me, even if you just want to throw some ideas around.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling/Grammar, I am a Brit so a heads up about whether you want to stick to English or American spellings is always appreciated. I tend to be pretty good at noticing whether things are canon and continuity as well. I'm also very honest, I won't read it, tell you it's great and leave it at that, that's what a reviewer does and Betas who do the same are pretty pointless - I will tell you what you need to work on and suggest ways to help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is dialogue. I am also a stronger writer for non-fiction - but that doesn't mean I am less aware with fiction/fanfiction. I'm not so good with next gen Harry Potter, I can deal with the characters we know moving forward and going AU but I have little knowledge regarding their kids, I can read it, but it'll take me longer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd rather read stories that are going somewhere, rather than sex in every single chapter, I prefer stuff with more... plot. Other than that I'm pretty easy going, I like variety. I love Weasley fics, they're my favourite to read, I will take on whatever you throw at me if it's a Weasley fic tbh (as long as it doesn't involve anything that I've listed as 'NMCoT'). Also if Molly is yelling then I'm definitely there, I love it when Molly Weasley yells, I could read (and do) whole fics of just her yelling. Brilliant. Will accept most/all pairings would LOVE Perciver.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Twincest, anything that's just smut without plot.
