Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
**As I have limited Internet access, please email requests to me at , and I'll try to get back to you ASAP!

I am a responsible betareader, and I have improved many of my editing and proofing skills recently in college - I have a BA in English with a Writing concentration, and I've done a lot of betaing before that.

Best Genres: Romance, Humor, Tragedy, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Adventure.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will say that if you ask me to help with a slash fic, I will probably have to say no. Not because I'm against it - I've just never written slash myself, so it'd be hard for me to just hop in. But if it is just grammatical stuff, I'll still have a /

Not So Good At: Sci-fi, Crime, Horror, Fantasy.
