Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Grammar. Lots of grammar. Even if you want me for something else, I WILL find your grammar/spelling errors and I WILL point them out to you. I ask that you don't get defensive when I get picky. I do that to everyone, even my friends and myself. It's for the betterment of the story, promise. br /

I'll probably get into the story, too, if it's a good one. Just please make sure you thoroughly vet any advice I give you in terms of plot- I'm not as good at that part of beta-ing. If you ask for advice, I'll give it, but you'll always want to examine my recommendations.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar. If you need a grammar check, I will nitpick until I can't anymore. I'm also pretty good at spotting plot holes, but unless they're glaring you'll usually have to tell me to be looking for them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If you want help on your storyline outside of plot hole sealing, I probably won't be much help. My ideas tend to spin out on me, which is why nothing I create longer than about 10k words can even hope to sustain itself, and I'd rather not inflict that on whatever you're planning to create. Sorry :(
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I absolutely love emotional stories. Whether said emotion is sadness, joy, or anger, I like stuff that inspires feeling. Yes, Fluff falls into this category. Adventure also works. Romance I can be pretty picky about characterization-wise. If it's too OOC, I will tell you on no uncertain terms where you went wrong. That's probably the area where I'll come off the meanest. br /

I also have a deep love for pretty language. As a reference, Fahrenheit 451 was one of the best discoveries of my life.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Porn. I'll beta a story that contains it, since it's everywhere and in a some of the truly great fics I've read, but if you've got a pwp, for the love of all that's holy don't bring it to me. I also find densely historical works more difficult to read, just because my attention span doesn't go that far, though there have been a few memorable exceptions. It all depends on quality of language, I suppose.
