Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will beta-read finished or unfinished works, whether you want me as a second opinion person or full-on editing. I won't try to make your story different from how you want it, but I expect that, if you're looking for a betareader, you can take criticism. I love to fangirl and be excited, and I love humor especially.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with grammatical things (as well as proper use of commas!) and I love playing with word choice to make a plot points, emotions, and sensory details stand out. I love working with authors who aren't afraid to write outside the box a bit, and I'm better at toning down a lot of stuff than building onto very little, if you catch my drift. I'm also very good at leaving your version of the characters the way you want them, and asking questions as I beta for your opinion and your idea of their portrayal. I very much believe that betareaders are supplementary. I love researching and fact-checking. I'm also very musical, so I'll do song lyric editing as well as any music references you might need, I'm the one for you.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I probably won't suggest plot lines because I'm prone to cliche, to be totally honest. I'm American, so I can't Brit-pick; it's better to go get an actual British person, yeah? I sometimes stay up really late, I don't have a ton of free time during my day. My weaknesses include chocolate and Benedict Cumberbatch.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am familiar with Sherlock BBC; Lord of the Rings (to a point, I'm not well versed in the history behind Tolkien's world, but I love the stories and can recite the plot of the extended version of the movies from memory); The Hobbit (same goes); Pride and Prejudice and a lot of Jane Austen's works; Yuuri on Ice; most musicals, including Hamilton; a little bit of Star Trek (enough to get by); Harry Potter (the love of my life); Percy Jackson series and all extensions; and I'm almost done with Merlin. I'm familiar with basic world history. I will beta for grammar and word choice pretty much any fandom, though, so hit me up :)br /br /br /

I love humor stories and prefer to read them over angsty ones. But that's just a reading preference, it might be advantageous to have someone who doesn't like to dwell into long passages on feelings. It might make the "feelings" bits cleaner and easier to read without losing the emotion behind it, it's entirely up to you.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'll beta pretty much any rating, meta or fic, but I will probably refer you to another beta if the topic is too squishy (for example, topics like incest I probably won't do if it's graphic). I prefer to do stories that don't involve characters as bestial creatures (Vampires, Werewolves, etc.) unless they are like that in the original story; the exception being if the plot's really good, I'll /br /br /

I won't do stories about real people, including band members, because I consider it a violation of their privacy, and while I support people who are into that kind of thing, I don't want to actively take part.
