Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I tend to be a critical examiner of things when I set my mind to it. I'm very blunt in the feedback I give, and love to discuss the various ways something could be interpreted or written to convey something. I think if someone is open to opinions which may differentiate from their own, willing to discuss plot points and how they work to form a narrative, or simply wish to have someone to bounce ideas and themes off of, then I could be a good pick.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Dialogue, keeping people in character, keeping track of themes and story-lines, spelling and grammar, and fact checking in fandoms. Basically, I like to do a little bit of everything.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My descriptions of surroundings tend to be sparse. I can see the images so clearly in my head, I sometimes forget readers may need more details to perceive the same things I do. I also don't feel the strongest in choreographing battles, but that's something that likely won't come up in the majority of stories. Finally, I sometimes struggle with word choice, but that's what a thesaurus is for.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories where the writer is working to create something new or interesting. Anyone can make a sub-par story based on the question, "What if this one thing was different?" but unless someone fully considers what that question does, it becomes a jumble. I also enjoy cross-overs where different characters must adapt to possibly absurd situations.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do explicit sexual content. I also am not interested in yuri/yaoi ships, as almost all of them make no sense for the characters used. Typically, no crack ships either, but if you can make a good case for how the ship would fundamentally make sense while keeping the people in character, you have my ear.
