|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm happy to read just about anything, as long as it has been written and reviewed with a reasonable amount of care before being sent to me. That is unless we are kicking tires on a rough outline, which I am also happy to do!
Whenever possible, I prefer to work through Google Docs (I love it because it lets me read and comment on the go, which means you get feedback faster! Everybody's happy!). Turnaround time will depend on length, but 2k words will be under a week.
Finally: SEND ME YOUR WEIRD FICS. If you're asking yourself, for example, "Who is going to beta this Avengers bullfighting AU set in Catalonia in the mid-1920s?" the answer is ME. I am always, always into obsessively-researched/weird/genre fics. (Unless they are obsessively-researched Alpha/Omega fics in which case anything but that, please.)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm fairly well-rounded: good at close-reading for small spelling and grammatical errors, a good ear for sentence structure and dialogue, and a good grasp of big-picture stuff like plotting, characterization etc.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I will apologize in advance: you might get huge chunks of rewrite suggestions from me. On the bright side, it'll be done politely, enthusiastically, and in a sidebar!
I'm also Canadian, and I've found that sometimes (rarely, but sometimes) my lingo is sort of alien and old-fashioned. Garburator, chesterfield, serviette! (Or, god forbid, 'washroom.')
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read anything not on the list below, but I particularly love: Marvel (Avengers, Daredevil, anything), Harry Potter, Buffy/Angel (do people still write that or am I old?), Kingsman, Hannibal...
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Alpha/Omega stuff. High School AUs. Anime fanfic (exception: Cowboy Bebop).
