|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm going to college to become an editor, so I take this all quite seriously. I've never officially betaread for someone I don't know, but I've been revising and editing for years. Chances are I'm going to be opinionated and honest about anything you send me, though I am in no way out to hurt your feelings. I'd love to help anyone who asks, so make sure to say something if you are interested in my assistance in any way.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Characterization is my forte, and it's defintely something I like to focus on when reading or writing fanfiction. I enjoy helping people incorporate appropriate characterization into their stories and aim to make the characters in question feel more accurate and human. I also have a solid grasp of grammar and syntax and a decent vocabulary to work with.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have issues with comma splices and occasionally break tense in my own writing. I will still be able to spot these errors when editing but you may want to take my advice on fixing them with a grain of salt. I also get nit-picky at times, though I try not to be overly so. Time frame-wise, I'm usually pretty quick, but I sometimes get swamped during the school year. I will give you ample warning if that is going the case.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm pretty open. I love fics of most sorts and have a particularly strong attraction to canon-compliant romance stories. I prefer proofing characters I'm pretty familiar with so that I can comment on characterization with some sort of authority, but if you need a quick and dirty grammar check I can do that for other fandoms.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Most things I'm good with, the only major exceptions being incest or mpreg. There are a number of things I am less inclined towards, like canon/OC pairings, trite AUs (like high school), ect, but I would be willing to discuss those when they are well written. I'll let you know if there is some other sort of issue, but it shouldn't really be a problem.
