Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey! I'm fine with beta-ing for you, but first you gotta know a few things about me. English is my first language, and I was raised with books, books and more books. I'm reasonably fast, but I'm not very experienced with being a beta. I am confident that I can do it, though! However, if you're sending me a story, please note that although having some OOC-ness is necessary for fanfiction, if you're writing Snarry and having Snape grin and pine, that's just NO. I prefer beta-ing Harry Potter fics, because HP is my obsession of choice. Next come (in order of preference) Avengers, Sherlock, Batman and Supernatural. That is all.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm awesome at editing HP fics, because I adore that series, and reference it all the time. Sadly, I do not live in the US or Canada, or really any English-speaking country, so I have not read/watched any other. I can edit a Sherlock fic pretty easily, because I've read those short stories. I can do an Avengers fic, even though I haven't watched/read Avengers. I can stitch up a Supernatural fic, but only AUs, because sadly I haven't watched it. Doctor Who is actually Doctor WHO to me. Batman- seriously, who doesn't know the basics of Batman, Superman and Spiderman? Easy- Batman doesn't have superpowers, he fights the Joker, lives in Batcave, drives Batcar, throws weird ninja-star-bats at people, etc etc. Sorry, but that's all
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My main weakness is that I don't actually have much knowledge in the fiction department. Read 'My Strengths'. I also don't like too much OOC-ness.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter I would definitely prefer, but I prefer fics with Luna (because she's amazing and awesome and I am her), and not bashing-everyone fics. I mean, really, how many people can betray Harry Potter? That's just ridiculous. I also find it very difficult to write redemption or slow change, because I'm generally a hectic kind of person, so if you've got any of that please find another beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta OOC fics (such as Harry becoming cruel, crazy and utterly Dom over the space of one summer), but that's basically it. Also if you diss Luna, Harry or Severus, that's a deal-breaker.
