Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I love fanfiction and have been reading it for years. It hurts and bothers me to see stories with fantastic premises turn out to be weakened or ruined by poor writing via basic errors. I would love to help writers polish their stories. I have tried to write fanfiction stories myself and do not seem to possess that particular gift. I feel that I am better able to contribute to the fanfiction community through the role of a beta reader. After all, when I read fanfiction I am correcting and analyzing stories in the back of my mind as I go, anyway. I might as well do so for the benefit of the finished product!br /

I do not have a plethora of works to offer as evidence for my editing capabilities. I have three old and unfinished beginnings of stories listed on my member profile. My main qualifications are simply my love of reading. I’ve been a bookworm almost since I learned to read, so I have a good innate sense of how good stories should be put together. I am fastidious about spelling and grammar, and while that makes me an annoying reviewer, it causes me to be perfect for the role of a /

I would prefer not to beta stories outside of my preferences, including those that are not my cup of tea. Those tropes below marked with an asterisk (*) are non-negotiable. Thank you.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar, characterization, plot analysis, French language translations, dialogue, fantasy, romance, sci-fi.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Style (foreshadowing, symbolism, etc.), "Brit-picking," non-French foreign language translations, action sequences (fighting, dueling, etc.), mystery, horror, parody, angst, fluff. [FANDOM SPECIFIC][For Harry Potter, I have not completely read the sixth and seventh books; while I know much of what happened, I do not know little details. For Merlin, I have not yet thoroughly watched the fourth or fifth seasons (though I have a reasonable awareness of what happened). For Naruto, I have not read the manga or watched the later episodes of Shippuden (though I have a very basic knowledge of what happened).]
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Pairings listed above*, bottom!Harry*, bottom/uke!Naruto*, bottom!Merlin*, bottom!Charles*, bottom!Kirk*, bottom!Loki*, bottom!Steve*, bottom!Stiles*, bottom!Bilbo*, bottom!John*, bottom!d'Artagnan*, bottom!Eggsy*, bottom!Q*, happy endings*, and alternate universe (AU) - particularly canon and fantasy AUs.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Gratuitous rape (as in multiple (as in more than two or three), long extremely graphic scenes)*, main heterosexual pairing*, top!Harry*, top/seme!Naruto*, top!Merlin*, top!Charles*, top!Kirk*, top!Loki*, top!Steve*, top!Stiles*, top!Bilbo*, top!John*, top!d'Artagnan*, top!Eggsy*, top!Q*, sad endings*, main pairing character death*, main OCs (particularly main OC pairings)*, slavery, excessive angst (if the percentage of angst is over 35% of your fic, then it's a little too high in my opinion), excessive fluff (same over 35% rule applies), torture, self-harm, infidelity (i.e. main pairing cheating), or modern setting AUs.
