|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been reading for as long as I can remember, mostly fiction. I can't say that I was raised on any one particular series or author, though. I have developed a clear idea of the sort of stories and the sort of writing I like to read and write.
I expect you as the author to have already edited grammar and story to the best of your ability. If it is a multi-chapter fiction, I expect you to have at least a vague idea of where your story and character will go next, and where they should end up, so that I can look at the current material with that in mind.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have an excellent command of the English language, and generally a good eye for what makes a character sympathetic, where the pace of a story slows, or where something needs to be added instead of glossing over details.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may come across as a little heavy-handed in my suggestions. I only know what I like to read. While previous authors whose work I've beta'd (not fanfiction) seemed pleased with most of my suggestions and input, I still have the feeling that I left a certain, slight taste of my own writing style in after my edits were processed. I still tend to suspend disbelief somewhat when reading anything, so I may miss small inconsistencies in character motivation or behavior (though I believe I do still see large inconsistencies).
I don't do long descriptions. Anything more than a paragraph I will skim over when I read for myself, and beta'ing that sort of thing is work, not fun.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that keep canon characters in character, though I'm open to non-canon pairing that have some basis in canon or are realistically developed. I'm open to stories that take place in alternate universes as well as in the original universe.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Non-Canon characters/Original Characters as main characters (though this depends on the fandom); Crossovers of fandoms from completely different universes, especially supernatural/non-supernatural universes
