Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am just a fan who would love to help edit and improve a story that I would enjoy reading. My expectations aren't exactly high... I just want someone who intends to finish their story. I've been an avid fanfiction reader for around ten years, and nothing bothers me more than getting really into a story, and having the author abandon it. Sometimes, I'd have dreams about where the story would go... On that note, other than having the intent to finish, I can't really think of any other expectations. All I know is that I've read many a fanfiction with okay-to-horrible writing, but fantastic story lines and wanted to just shake the writer. So, I want to offer my services.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've always excelled in writing, from when I was very young all the way to my college English courses. I'm a good editor, a friend of mine who is older than me used to e-mail me her papers from college while I was still in high school to edit. She always had great content, but her grammar, spelling, sentence structure, etc... was atrocious. She always called me to thank me for her "A" papers.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not perfect, I make mistakes. If I get bored with what I'm reading, I tend to rush things and small mistakes will sneak past, or it might take me forever. I suppose that will help with writing fiction... I'll be able to tell you if I find it boring? (haha...)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I tend to love Harry Potter romance fictions the best, but I'm open to just about anything. I also like the odd pairings that would never happen in canon, like Draco/Hermione or Sirius/Hermione... I've even read a few Harry/Pansy ones that I just adored.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't want to say I'd never beta a slash fic, because maybe someone comes along with this amazing story but it features a m/m pairing. But I do tend to not care for slash. Other than that, I'm not really sure what I'd say no to. I like just about anything.
