|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey! I am a teenage girl who loves reading and writing. I discovered fan fiction two years ago and I love it. I would love to be a beta for most stories just not ones with overtly sexual or suggestive themes. If you use vulgar language, I'm fine with it. I love The X Files, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, and other shows. I am honestly just an overly obsessive teenager with a passion for reading and writing. I expect you to be able to handle any negative criticism from me. That's my job as a beta reader. I will try to be as honest and as nice as possible. I personally would love to help anybody who wants to better themselves as a writer. I love stories that involve science and I would love to read your stories and help you on your path to becoming a better writer.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am a little weird as in I like and take notice when someone uses good grammar. I'm not going to lie, I am a total grammar cop. I always correct my friends and family and sometimes check my own stories up to three times for grammar mistakes. I also excel at finding spelling errors. I always have and I always correct spelling fiercely, but I am human and sometime I make mistakes as well. (Not using to, too, or two, because well yeah.) I often use too much detail in my stories and have to go back and fix them. Because of this I can tell you that I know how to spot when there is too little detail. I love reading and I am a very brazen and honest person. That's one thing you can count on, I'm not going to lie to you. If I don't like your story, or if I think there is a problem somewhere with the plot, I am going to tell you.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness is using too much detail. I would say as a writer that can be a weakness because I have to go back and constantly edit details out of something I have written. As a beta reader that is a strength. Another weakness is I don't have time. I have time but sometimes, I don't have enough time so I would prefer to beta read shorter stories.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would definitely prefer to beta read for stories about The X Files, Law & Order: SVU, Criminal Minds, and NCIS. For these shows I will read stories that feature the pairings of Scully and Mulder, Bensler, Morcia, and Jibbs. I love stories about family and romance and would love it, if someone would write a story about Mulder and Scully being secretly married since before Scully joined The X Files. I try to not read stories about character death but occasionally I will make the exception. I may like the romantic stories but I love the stories where the author doesn't just focus on the romantic relationship between the characters they borrow.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have but one rule. No slash/mpreg/non-con, obviously the non-con applies to everything but SVU fan fiction. I love crime shows and detective shows and love when I find a fanfic with a good case, but I do not want to read and edit stories where one of the main characters is raped or abused. I am a member of the Joyful Heart Foundation and I say that with pride. Rape is something that is not talked about often enough. I personally think that if we cannot talk about it in real life, why should we write about it. I have read stories with rape in them that I believe was essential to the development of the story. However, if you put rape into your story just to put it into your story, then we have a problem.
