Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hiya! I'm ready to rock! I'm an enthusiastic reader and I try to give as much constructive criticism as I can. If there's stuff I like, I'll tell ya. If there's stuff I HATE, I'll let you know. When it comes between being honest over nice, however, I'll always go with honest because some writers just need to be told the truth to jolt into action. If I feel someone has real potential, I will totally support the writer and be a cheerleader! Be warned: I have above an 8th grade reading level, and I expect real effort. NO TYPOS, NO ILL GRAMMAR! When it comes to fanfiction, I NEED to read fica that are up to date, indepth with characters, and original. If you have a pairing that I don't believe will work with the characters personalities, I probably won't be as engaged by your romance. If I don't buy that a certain character would, say, rob a bank and run away to the Bahamas, I'm not going to be paying much attention because, to me, the whole thing is ridiculous. So, if you aren't looking for someone who's picky with the fandom, you might want to try somewhere else. Otherwise, I am here for anyone who wants me to be there.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Plot twists-if you can't figure out how they escape the cave, I'll suggest throwing in a rope; if you can't untangle from a hopeless romance, I'll suggest untangling...things; we all get stuck every now and then, sometimes a new perspective is needed. Characters-Most of my fandoms, I really get into the characters and I get to know their habits. Critique in general-I do not BS. I don't beat around the bush. Which works both ways, cause I immediately identify what I LOVE about a writer's technique. ANDS I quickly list what needs work. I will not give you positive feedback every time because hey-no writer is perfect, not even moi. I also can become a fan of work if it really hits me. So you'll be able to trust my word as a loyal reader.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I generally will critique but cannot amend style techniques. If the narration isn't really working, chances are it's YOU, not the story, and I am really not required to fix people. I can be really opinionated at times, perhaps more than I should be even as a beta reader.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer sort of 'episode' fics, like the fic could actually take place in the series. I can deal with romance-not so into fluff and spare me smut if you can't do it right. I also LOVE a good laugh-humor/parody is always a real treat for me!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
NO MARY SUES. I will not READ your fic if I smell even a WHIFF of dreaded MARY SUE. Also, no AUs. I really, really can't stress those two enough. Also, don't do Out Of Characters, especially for romantic pairings. Non-canon with an OC will not be accepted. Ever. Don't do a cross-over if it doesn't make sense. Like Babylon 5/Angel. That makes me blink, curse, and toss whatever is sent to me.
