Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
After getting degrees in history and educational psychology, I started working as a professional writer. In the decade since I left school, I've written and reviewed thousands and thousands of pages of very high quality information. I write fiction, including fan-fiction, for fun. I really enjoy playing with characters and seeing what they would do in different situations. I think that's probably the same for everyone else who dabbles in this hobby. Good writing doesn't just happen. It takes years of practice and reading what others write to get to a point where you can fluidly get your ideas down on a page. I've had the benefit of working with other professional writers for years and know how much that has contributed to my writing skills. I think helping other writers is a responsibility anyone who enjoys writing shares.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As a professional writer, I consider the mechanics of writing fundamental (spelling, grammar, word choice). I work every day with complex information, so I need to be a stickler for details. I bring that same attention to beta reading. When I write (or read) fiction, I like to see the writer take big chances as long as they protect the integrity of the original characters. So if you want to be experimental in your writing, I'll be with you all the way. I know the characters and cannon of Scarecrow and Mrs. King very, very well. I don't mind AU or even crossovers as long the characters remain recognisable.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If there are many basic mistakes (spelling, grammar, tense, word choice) then I'll probably struggle to see past that. That doesn't mean I can't or won't help you, but it does mean that it might take more than one iteration to get there :)
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like stories that develop the characters in a credible way. What other adventures could they have had? How would they have reacted to those adventures? How would they (individually and not) have changed? AU is fine too, as long as it doesn't turn the character into something completely incompatible with cannon.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I read and write fanfiction because I felt something for the original characters. I don't enjoy stories where the personality of the characters has completely changed. I am not interested in reading stories with a high degree of religion (and my threshold for this is very low).
