Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm Laura, I'm 24 and I'm from the br /

br /

If you ask me to be your beta, I promise to reply as quickly as possible - usually the same br /

br /

I expect you to tell me what you're looking for in a beta-reader, and what you want me to particularly pay attention to (if you know your own weaknesses, I can concentrate on them to help you do the things you'd otherwise struggle with).brbr /

br /

If you ask me to be your beta, please include a brief summary of your fic.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, Britpicking, dialogue, characterisation.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer, I'm not great at long passages of action, so if your fic's heavily action-based then I may not be the beta-reader for you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My eternal favourite fandom is Harry Potter (especially, but not limited to, Marauders' Era). I'm also involved in some other fandoms (i.e. books: His Dark Materials, Lord of the Rings. TV: Merlin, Sherlock, most British comedy) and tend to flit in and out of some others. If you're writing something that's not in any of these fandoms, it's worth asking if I'm interested in getting involved, but I'll only agree to beta something if I know the subject material well. brbr /

I mostly enjoy romance fics, whether they be fluffy and humorous or dark and angsty. I'm also happy to beta for gen/friendship fics, fics with complex plots like mystery/adventure etc, and occasionally crack. If there's romance, I'm happy with slash and/or het. OCs aren't a definite no, but how they're written will sway me as to whether I want to get involved.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Songfics, gratuitous sex and/or violence, anything written in the 2nd person.
