Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm the sort of beta that can offer constructive critisim and point out both weaknesses and strengths in your works. I went to my local performing arts high school for four years and was drilled on how to truly critique a piece constructively. If you are expecting glowing praise for pieces and nothing more, I'm not your girl. If, however, you are looking for actual advice and constructive critism then I am more than happy to help. I will never be mean or tell you that your work is awful. Anyone who has the courage to put pen to paper and allow the world to see it is offering up a part of themselves and I will always respect that.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am strongest in dialogue, plot development, and characterization. I'm decent with basic grammer and speling, but by no means an expert.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
True standard Oxford or American grammer is my weakness. I know enough to know where certain punctuation should go but if you're looking for super technical grammer checks, you'd be best off with some one else. My roots are in free form poetry so I take a far looser and freer path with the english langauage and am not so strict with such things.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta anything within the Dragon Age, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and Kushiel's Legacy cannon/fandoms. Any rating (including M) is fine by me. Although I do not currently have any BtVS fic up trust me when I say I am VERY well versed in the language/events/cannon...(I've burned through 3 different sets of dvds from watching the series far more than is healthy.)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Any story involving a fandom I am not familiar with or involves horrific things happening to children.
