Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I mostly look at logical consistency, characterization, and smoothing breaks in an author's personal style. I also give feedback on language things and can be someone to "bounce ideas off of" if your plot gets stuck or something. If you want to "hire" me, all I ask is that you're not a total beginner. You don't have to be a pro, but you should know your way around the basics (e.g. when to put line breaks).
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I beta stories in both English and German. In English, I am good with spelling and grammar, but not with punctuation; in German, I'm good with all three. My English grammar probably leans more to the "American English" side. I also have a solid grasp of characterization and canon compliance in my fandoms and can help you iron out the logic of your plot.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
English punctuation is not my strong point. I also tend to miss run-on sentences and repetitions because I'm prone to those errors myself.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Friendship is my favorite genre. I also like stories that fit neatly into a work's canon instead of wanting to "make something better than/different from the way it was in the original". But really, there's very few things that I dislike.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't betaread smut. If there's a sex scene that enhances the general plot, great, but if the sole purpose of the story is to get character A into bed with character B, count me out. Also, no bashing, period. And I'm not a big fan of slash, romance, and AUs, but could try them if they're well done. If you write one or more of the latter three things, you can just ask, but don't be disappointed if I turn you down.
