|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I ask that if anyone wants me to beta their stories to keep the following things in mind: 1) I would prefer to have an overview of your story, including basic plot-line, characters, and desired development of the story sent to me before I agree to being your beta. I am not fond of not knowing what I am getting into without knowing the basics of what I am expected to read and give feedback on. 2) I am not always available on your time schedule. I do have my own stories and a life outside of fanfiction that requires my attention, so I will be splitting time between your work, my own, and everything else that is life of a high school girl. 3) I will endeavor to be as chivalrous as I can, but please remember that my natural tendency is to just up and say what I want to say, and thus offend some people. Not saying that to scare anyone away. I only thought it fair to warn you ahead of time. 4) I do have a curfew. Meaning I will not be available into the wee hours of the night. The latest I am up is 22:00 PST.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammatical, spelling, improper verb usage, and the like drive me up a wall. As such, I crack down hard on those things. Also, I am a stickler for details, and will point out minute things, such as a character had blue eyes one chapter and brown the next. Plot holes are also something I don't let slide, unless you give me a reason for not explaining something or purposely not revisiting something.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a tendency to skip over some things, such as things I have read before or things I don't believe to be significant. Also, I do like to think I have my own style of writing, so if something isn't what I would write, I don't like it. That is a personal thing, but something that often comes up when I'm proofreading something. I try to understand that people write differently than I do, but, as an incredibly opinionated and stubborn person, it is hard for me to let go of that.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would prefer to beta stories with solid plot-lines. As for fandom, anything based off of any of my favorite movies, anime, television shows, or books, such as Avatar the Last Airbender, Bleach, Avengers, or Hunger Games. The full list of all of my favorites are below. Gore and swearing are fine, just not so much so it takes up most of the chapter.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not do horror, gay, lesbian, or genderbent stories. Also, I will not beta stories with an excess of language. If you do not know what I mean by that, I suggest you scan through my stories to get an idea of what I mean. Also, I would prefer to not beta any lemon oneshots. If you plan to have a lemon later on in your story, or feel like you want to/might add one, please let me know that ahead of time.
