Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey! Arwen here. Thanks for considering me as a beta! I love editing people's work; I'm a self-diagnosed grammar/spelling Nazi, but I really love reading and critiquing others' work. I try to bring out the best of a person's writing, and I especially focus on presenting a polished work with great grammar, spelling, and description. br /

That said, I want to help you create a great story, but I'm not a writing guru. I'll admit that I don't know everything, and we may disagree on things. I'm more likely to let you do it your way than to insist that I'm right; nevertheless, I still need the writer to be cooperative and willing to consider my suggestions and accept any changes that I make (most will be grammatical, and a few may change the wording of something, but I won't change the story at all). I also may make suggestions for plot ideas and such, but I don't expect you to change the plot of the story based on my suggestions; that part is completely up to you. :)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best at editing grammar and spelling; they're my strongest areas and my favourites. I'm also good at description, and I'll likely encourage you to increase the visual and descriptive depth of your work, such that it's more rounded and with different interesting facets rather than a flat, less colourful story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness is writer's bloc. I'm not always an overflowing fountain of ideas, and I especially struggle with coming up with basic plots. I can imagine great plot twists and different situations for the characters to experience, but I can't really help much with creating a story plot. (Most of my works are oneshots.)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My fandoms of expertise, when it comes to character development and story accuracy, are Sherlock, Doctor Who, Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and the Marvel Universe. If you don't see your fandom listed under there, PM me and ask if I know much about it. Even still, I'm willing to betaread stories from other fandoms; however, I won't be much help if you're worried that your story is noncanonical or your characters don't seem accurate.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Due to personal and religious convictions, I will NOT betaread stories rated M for excessive bad language or smut. Also, I rarely read slash; I'm willing to beta it, but only if it's not blatant or graphic. It's not because I'm homophobic; it's just a preference. :)
