Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta read, I never EVER change a person's story. I only edit spelling, punctuation, and grammar. Sometimes, if I feel a pre-existing character's speech does not match up with the character, I may modify it. But I will only do that with the author's permission. Also, I (usually) won't write a story for someone. I want to encourage people to pursue writing their stories themselves, because the feeling when you write something yourself that lots of people enjoy is amazing. Writing a story for someone robs that person of that feeling. There may be some exceptions, but, for the most part, I won't do it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am definitely a grammar/spelling/punctuation Nazi. I am also fairly good at characterization.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Figuring out how to stretch something out, or write an incredibly detailed description are both huge weaknesses for me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that are actually decent, unique stories that could realistically fit in with the universe they are based off of.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I refuse to beta read, let alone look at any fanfics that I classify as slash fanfics. These are stories that take two or more characters and put them together in a romantic situation that should not exist whatsoever. I also will not touch any erotic stories of any kind.
