Beta Description
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.
