Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. I've been writing fanfiction for almost seven years now, and I have written and read a variety of genres. I am very picky about plot, realism and style. For basic grammar I am also suitable, but for more complex construction I suggest you find someone else. I try to be tactful, but my critique will be honest and thorough. I like to use track changes with microsoft word, so you must have microsoft word. Also, I prefer to just email chapters back and forth.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
+ Plot Construction: Is your story interesting? What could make it more interesting? Is your idea cliche?
+ Realism: Would someone really say that? Could this really happen?
+ Style: Do your sentences flow? Are you using original descriptions?
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
+ Subtle Grammar: Anything that is not apparent to the well trained eye, probably won't pop out to me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories with a new or original take on a fairly common fandom, stories that involve games of cat and mouse, dark possessive romance stories, wit, original mythology references.

Here is, in order of most wanted to least wanted, what I'll beta:

Labyrinth (Jareth/Sarah)
Hannibal (Clarice/Hannibal) House (No pairing preference)
Lost (Ben/Juliet)
Twilight (Anything)
Teen Titans (Any fics with Slade)

I will Beta fics not on this list, you just have to ask.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Slash between two men. Fluffy stories, stories without substance.
Crude or ridiculous humor. Anything without some kind of romance or chemistry, it doesn't have to be the main focus but there has to be some kind of friction there.
