|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta I like doing my job thoroughly, and will read through your work several times to make sure I catch all the mistakes. I can beta in any way you like: giving you story ideas, correcting grammar, making comments. Just clarify what you want me to do and I'll do it.
What I like the most is correcting and commenting, whether it be grammar, sentence structure, fanlore or consistency mistakes.
When it comes to what you can send my way, try me and chances are I'll say yes.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths would be in both the grammar and spelling. I have been beaten through comma, colon, semicolon and hyphen rules so I automatically correct whatever is wrong with either of those.
One of the things I pride myself most on, though, is consistency and canon mistakes. Evidently, we write fan fiction to make our own touch on the story, but if I find anything out of canon (whether it be someone's hair colour or a part of their past or whatever) I will leave a comment or footnote about it, leaving it up to you whether it was on purpose or not. When it comes to consistency, I notice when things do not fit together. This is all the way from whether you change point of view, tense or you give contradicting information.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some of the things I might not catch in your stories are d/t errors (send vs. sent), with that said, I do my best to catch every error.
I cannot for the life of me write a review of your story (I have had that request before), so please don't ask me to do it. I can write my opinion and comment on it but I cannot write it like I would be in a paper.
Furthermore, if your story is disregarding canon almost completely or your characters are too OOC, I might not find them very interesting. Here I am not talking about changing ships or altering a person to make it fit into a story, I'm talking about making a character completely different from who they are shown as without /proper/ justification-proper justification can bring you far, and I'd love to help you with creating this to your stories.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta whatever you have. I don't care about the rating, (and with proper justification, I don't care how much you alter characters or storyline). I don't care about ships (whether it's F/M, M/M, F/F, multi or genderbend) so as preferred I can only say I prefer my own fandoms, but it's nothing that really means anything.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
The only event-if you can call it that-I won't beta will be rape, in any kind, shape or form. I'll beta all other chapters in your story, but if there's a chapter, or several, that contains rape, I won't touch them. I can easily help you with after effects and also reactions etc. but not the act itself!
On another note, if you have big bunches of text in your story which is another language than Danish, English, Swedish or Norwegian, I cannot correct those parts and thus don't see why I should beta the rest of your story when it's better to have one who understands and can correct all of it.
