Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am fairly honest, sometimes brutally so, but I would never tell someone to "stop writing because their work sucks." I believe that anyone can write. Maybe it won't be the next literary classic, but all that matters is that you enjoy it.

I am not easily offended. I can critique rape, torture, or whatever you can cook up.

I can be a little long-winded. If you want me to look over a chapter, expect a long list. Not just of faults. I like to point out things that are done well.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and character developement are my two main strong points. I am very adept at catching spelling mistakes and problems with the /

Character creation is what I love. Backgrounds, appearance, personality, anything. I like to pick a character apart in order to understand and explain every facet of their being.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Poetry is not my cup of tea. I can appreciate a good poem but anything beyond a limerick is lost on me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like relationships filled with UST and conflict. I like a good OC, despite how rare those are. Creating a character is hard, especially if you're going to insert it into a fandom. And if you love that character, it takes restraint not to have them ride in, save the day, steal every heart in the vicinity, and be the ultimate symbol of sassy/purity/jaded/whatever theme you're going /

At any rate; sarcasm, humor, and conflict. That's what I like.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fluff. Give me a hair-pulling, love/hate relationship filled to the brim with UST. Yes, a little fluff thrown in every now and then is good. You can't pull hair all the time. But if you're trying to take a character like, say...Khan, and turn him into a honey coated ball of sugar who wants nothing more than to love and respect his love bunny...I think I'm about to die of sugar overload from that sentence. Forgive me. I might not live to be of any /

And poetry. If it doesn't rhyme, I have no way of telling if it's poetry or just a bunch of words with no punctuation involved. Or maybe there is punctuation... See? I don't know.
