Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I read fanfiction on a daily basis. As a beta-reader, I look through the story for inconsistencies in plot, grammar, and spelling. I can read German fairly well, so if you need someone to help with momentary dialogs in that language, I can endeavor to help more than someone with no experience in the language. My expectation of anyone who requires my services is that you will try to send in your chapters regularly, with an explanation if you have to miss a normal beta day. I will, in turn, ensure that the chapter is read and beta'ed within 24 hours, and will send a message detailing the reasons for my delays otherwise.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a good ear for the way that sentences need to sound; I am proficient in English grammar. Sometimes, I can find the inconsistencies in language caused by ESL, and can figure out what the real meaning is supposed to be. I will also always make sure to tell you exactly what my changes are so that you may choose not to accept them; you, as the author, are the paramount authority on your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to have some difficulty editing because I try to overwhelm the writer. It is not intentional, and I am working to curtail that urge to entirely rewrite passages so that they 'sound right'; however, that means I might be somewhat more timid in making changes than is required. Bear with me, please.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to read and beta stories that I enjoy, Harry Potter, mostly; however, I will accept beta requests from other fandoms if the idea and the summary is intriguing enough. I like slash- a lot- and my favorite pairings in the HP universe are Harry Potter/ Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter/ Severus Snape.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would prefer to not beta stories whose base universes I do not know; i.e., I won't beta 1984 stories because I've never read the book. I would also prefer to not betaread stories that are a pairing that I object to, which generally includes Harry in a pairing with any girl except Luna, Harry/Ron, or Harry in a pairing with anyone that is more than a generation younger or older than he.
