Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I haven't done a lot of beta-reading, but I have done a lot of writing. Depending on the fandom, I tend to beta for spelling, grammar, characterization, continuity, flow, etc. I use Microsoft Word 2007, and use track changes and the "insert comment" function. If you'd prefer something else, let me know.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling/Grammar (I'm Canadian, so keep that in mind). Flow and continuity are also my biggest strengths.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may forget and lean towards Canadian spellings, but I try my hardest not to do that. I may not be the best to go to for "believability" as I tend to read fic for the escapism factor, or to fix things I find unsatisfying in the fandom.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm good with slash, angst, drama and gen for the following fandoms:

- Harry Potter - Star Wars (up to, and including episode I, but not after)
- Seaquest - The OC

I will do Gen, Angst or even (shockingly) Het for:

- Battlestar Galactica (2003 - Present)

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Will generally not do het/traditional romances because I am absolutely rubbish at writing them, and I just generally don't like them. Exceptions being BSG.

As for others, regarding Harry Potter, I tend to avoid creature fics, as well as Harry/Ron or Harry/Voldemort.
