Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a decent writer. Most of my material has gone unpublished. I read and give suggestions, and can make grammatical corrections upon request. I try to encourage an... original approach. Mary Sues drive me up the walls- if you send me one I'm going to probably annoy you more than the Microsoft Office Paper Clip person, constantly pestering you, generally my suggestions are to stop powerplaying or improve your dialog.

I've been writing creatively since about fourth grade, and thus have many years of experience under my belt, and I'm a good person to bounce ideas off of.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great at picking out grammatical errors and fixing them, even rearranging sentences so that they are less confusing for your average reader. I take a lot of time when editing someone's work- I keep the original text and place all my edits in parenthesis or bold, so the author can see the changes and undo them if they like the way they did it better.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm still working on dialog myself, and when writing stories I have a rather large problem of inspiration drying up, or even more likely a new idea hitting me so hard I completely forget about my current work. I think I'll need a reminder or two to stay on task...
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
No particular preference, just a whole lot of... things I *don't* like.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please, unless it's actually a part of the original storyline or you have a very good reason for it, no yuri/yaoi. FanFictions are supposed to be about the characters and settings already in the world that was created by another... modifying these characters' sexualities is taking things a little far and I'm not sure the actors would appreciate being told they come across that way.

Also, please follow these two rules of no self-inserts and no scripts unless you want them modified to fit the rules. I'm not a stickler for rules in general, but they do fit my preference. I know that OCs are present in some of my stories as minor characters. That's fine, I'll stick with you if that's the case (I mean minor villains, helpers, etc. are all well and good but please don't make them self-inserts where the characters drop in on the author's house or something and fall madly in love with the author/authoress. If I had a nickel for every time I read *that* scenario... I'd put them all in a sack and beat the author/authoress senseless.)

I'm stubbornly headstrong, and I ask that I not be paired up with anyone who thinks they're entitled to a good review because of who they are... I'm going to review and edit based on how I think it should be done because that makes me feel like I'm acting professional.

Also...I'm no good at poetry.
