Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I can copy edit, content edit, soundboard, basic proof reading are some of the skills I have. I edit via email as it’s better then the weird doc exchange thing fanfiction has going on. I’m usually quick, within a day or three you will have your chapter back depending on real life /br /

Specialized knowledgse:br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Horses- I have knowledge on horses/horseback riding having ridden and competed for twenty years. That being said I do not know anything about western style riding beyond the very very basics. I do practice horse archery. I have worked, ridden and trained warhorse in /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I know all about grooming, tacking (caring for tack and other equipment used), training for halter to A-level competition. I did some teaching on the /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I have ridden competitively in hunter, jumper, dressage, 3-day eventing, cross-country, racing (endurance and track).br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Archery- short or long bow proficient on the ground. Gets a bit dicey on horseback with my short bow though. The usual knowledge of care and maintenance included in doing /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Military- A decade in, left due to issues and my only alternative being permanent desk jockey shit. I have a high respect for COMMS and Intel divisions but I could not personally stand to do such a job. I have all the usual training from basic. A advanced level of training in survival. Entrance/Exit training, how to clear a house or building. Hand to hand, knife to hand, and knife to knife training (I personally found it relaxing to go through knife deflect-attack-be deflected-defend drills where you just kept going until someone said otherwise).br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I also was trained in HAZMAT basics and protocols. Fire training though not to be confused for firefighting training as those guys have much more knowledge and tools at their disposal due to the duties of their /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Was a sniper, reg Forces (not special forces which is where sniper training actual means something). I have actual training and experience not just Hollywood’s/tv drama network’s idea of what they think a sniper is and what they do. (Fun fact snipers are almost never found working alone.)br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I can negotiate and have for hostage situations, suicide prevention, and barricaded subjects that may be a harm to themselves or /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

While I have never been a dog handler I have worked closely with dogs and their handlers /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Medical- Due to enjoying risky sports and having had a career in a risky profession I do know more then the basic first aid but less then a qualified medical personnel. I also have training in how to triage and HAZMAT protocols. But I am not nor have I worked in HAZMAT. I just got bored one day and had an opportunity to participate in the HAZMATs refresher /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Animalsbr /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Falconer- I am also a falconer. I currently have my Redtail (Icarus-after the fool whose pride lead to his downfall), which is one of the starter/introductory bird’s here, and my Peregrine (Tauri- literal ‘little eagle’ because that’s what she thinks she is). Knowledge of course on the training/keeping/equipment/feeding that goes with working with raptors. That being said I have handled all manner of raptors including /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Fostering- I was a foster mom for the wildlife conservation programs here and have knowledge in raising (and all it entails) a number of small animals but I specialize in predatory cats. Due to the nearest zoo having expanded some years ago I no longer raise the exotics, only the local species through the wildlife conservation programs set up around here. Which in this place means cougars. I in fact have a pair of pretty kitties who just opened their eyes recently. Needy little things they /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Horses- as previously /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I am also working on my Masters in History and Bachelors in Economics (both micro and macro because I’m apparently a masochist like that)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do a lot of copy editing and content editing and even have some schooling specifically for those. I can do the basic grammar/punctuation as /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Also specialized knowledge in a range of subjects and activities.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Actual writing of my own stories. I think in visuals, even when reading a text of class work and so getting it all down on paper in a legible manner without leaving things out that are playing in my head but miss the paper is difficult for me. Hence I make a better editor then a writer because the meat is already there and just needs tweaking rather then pulling a brain child out while and nursing the abomination thereof /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Also poor impulse control and a crippling addiction to sweets. And authority issues... minor ones

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Unless it’s really well written I don’t like doing non-cannon yaoi/yuri. I am perfectly fine with it if it’s canon. It’s just that when a person tries to make a canonically straight character into something that is some variation of not straight they tend to change the canon character’s personality so much to bend them to their plot that they aren’t that character anymore. They usually end up some 2D ripoff of the actual original canon character.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer not to do any Yaoi/Yuri for Naruto or Lord of the rings. I don't have anything against Yaoi/Yuri but for those two particular ones I just can't see it without completely destroying the actual character's personalities. I could beta read Yaoi/Yuri for any other kind of story particularly if it's a canon /br /br /br /br /br /br /
