Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't particularly expect much, just slightly decent material with an author of open mind and able to take some criticism and listen to other's opinions. I'm mainly good at fixing sentence structure and getting things to sound right, that's my general style of writing. Weaving a tapestry with words to make an elegant final work.

I will beta most pairings, even slash. I have quite a few OTP's that are slash, but I'm a flexible shipper so... pretty much anything is good.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at catching things that just don't sound right. Most of my language skills come from being fairly phonetic. I learned to speak the majority of the french I know by listening and repeating, then I get compliments from my teacher telling me that I have the most beautiful writing out of my class. My english is like that as well, though to higher extent because it's my native language. br /

I'm also a fairly dramatic writer, and as such can help you with that. I can draw tears by writing a simple little passage of someone getting tossed around a little (so I'm told by one of my beta readers). So if you need or want some help writing a particularly dramatic or scene that you want to tug a little more on the heart strings, I'm the girl. br /

Another one of my strengths, if you can call it that, is that I'm a walking thesaurus of sorts. I can help you avoid repetitiveness and bring a deeper feel to a scene or story by virtue of extended vocabulary alone.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a bit of a problem with punctuation and some, fairly, minor grammar errors. Though, generally I can pick them out of other people's works, just not my own. What's up with that? br /

br /

I'm also a little bit of a buddy kind of beta. I like getting to know you a little bit, and some people just don't like that. So that can count as a weakness, I guess. I do my best work when there is some sort of connection and I enjoy talking with you, also I feel more comfortable giving you some advice on areas to change and reword and such.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer to beta YJ stories, Teen Titans, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and other such superhero related fics, though Percy Jackson and Harry Potter are great too. Pretty versatile when it comes to what I read. I'll do most anything, but not too detailed intimate stuff.

I'll do anything from one-shots to novel length chapter fics.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories with bizarre twists and that detract from the source material or undermine a lot of it. That is not to say that I won't do AUs, but just not ones that twist around the original bits form the plot to the point of non-recognition.

Detailed intimate scenes are also a no go for me. I can do gory, but not smutty type stuff. Like to read, but not to beta. That's a bit awkward...
