Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! I am actually a screenwriting and film production major in University, so I love to read a good story and I love looking at literature and media through a critical eye. (It's kind of my job). I strive in my own writing to create well structured, emotionally moving, and sophisticated stories with strong characters and plots. I would love to be able to help you strive for the same goal! I always always believe that a work can be improved by getting a second, or third, or even twentieth pair of eyes to read it. I will never put you down or insult your work, that is non-conducive and non-constructive to the work of an artist. Instead I will give feedback to encourage deeper and alternative thinking when it comes to your own work. If this is what you're looking for, I'm happy to help!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have an extensive wealth of knowledge on anything Doctor Who. And when I say anything, I mean ANYTHING Doctor Who. So I'm happy to help with that. I love stories with social commentary and heavy themes and I am good at reviewing such works. I think my main strength lies in characters and helping you make sure your characters are consistent and interesting people. If you're audience can't sympathize or relate to your characters than it doesn't matter how good your story is, it will fall flat.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I am prone in my writing to leave the plot behind in pursuit of character development. What I have to learn is to weave the character development directly into the story. I am still working on that.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Well if I don't know the tv show/book/movie/musical/etc... your fan fiction is about then I don't think I can provide much help! My main powerhouse is Doctor Who. I am well versed in Modern Doctor Who, Classic Doctor Who, Big Finish Doctor Who, and a lot of the Doctor Who licensed novels so if your fic is in that range, I can definitely help you. I also know basically everything there is to know on Star Trek (DS9 is the best and Voyager is the worst and yes I will fight you on that :P) I also enjoy Harry Potter, Supernatural, Deathnote, Avatar the Last Airbender and Korra, Criminal Minds, Hamilton, and many others. Just ask and I can tell you! I also prefer reading lots of character study, angst, tragedy, drama, hurt/comfort, and adventure pieces. Oh, and long fics and multi-chapter fics are my JAM! If your fic tells a complete and engaging story of its own count me 100%
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Absolutely no smut. I'm happy to read about any pairs both canon and non-canon, polyamory, gender-bend, or anything like that but I don't want to read anything with explicit sex scenes.
