Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
If you don't like honesty, I won't be the Beta for you. The areas I like to look at are; spelling, basic grammar, flow, plot, canon & ooc-ness. I like to look over a piece thoroughly so if you want a piece back within 24 hours, again I'm not the Beta for you. I prefer one-shot but don't mind chaptered stories if they are well written.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very picky about spelling and basic grammar, a nazi maybe, but I specifically look at these areas closely. I am pretty good at spotting flaws in canon and plot.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My grammar is good but not excellent, its an area that I am constantly trying to improve. Time is also a factor, but if I am slugged down I will always tell you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like all sorts of areas, but I guess I excel at Beta-ing Harry Potter, having read thousands of those type of fics (no I'm not exaggerating). Types of stories I like are; romance, drama, action-adventure. Characters I particularly like to read;

Harry Potter - (Remus Lupin, Sirus Black, Hermione Granger, Harry Potter, Albus Dumbledore, Marauder-Fics) Ships; Remus/Sirus, Remus/Hermione, Remus/Tonks, Heck who am I kidding Remus/anyone, Harry/Ginny, Snape/Lily).

Ashes to Ashes - (Gene Hunt, Sam Tyler, Alex Drake, Ray Carling, Chris Skelton, Shaz Granger) Ships; Gene/Alex, Chris/Shaz.

Supernatural - (Sam & Dean Winchester) Ships; Surprise me lol (No incest though yuk).

Torchwood - (Jack Harkness, John Hart, Gwen Cooper, Ianto Jones) Ships; Jack is a bit of a space-whore so I'll read anything but specifically Jack/Doctor(9&10), Jack/Gwen, Jack/Ianto, Jack/John and Owen/Tosh.

Doctor Who - Generally I don't mind old or new.

Basically, anything well written is welcome.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There's not much that can put me off, I don't like rape and violence for the sake of it or Stockholm (or Helsinki) syndrome style fics that push unlikely characters together. I'm old enough not to care if there are sex scenes. I won't beta songfics, incest or child abuse (I don't mind references to it just not graphic scenes, bums my day out otherwise).
