Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi! I quite enjoy beta reading, so if you ask me to do so, you will make me a very happy girl.

You should know that I get rather nitpicky, and will point out every little thing I find. I can come off as a bit harsh, but it's generally not intentional. I can promise that as your beta reader, I will go through your story thoroughly, giving a very detailed proofreading.

If you want me to beta your story, you can ask me to keep personal comments - stuff regarading characterization, plot, etc. - to myself. If you prefer it that way, that's fine, and my comments will be strictly regarding language and syntax. Otherwise I'll make the proofreading as comprehensive as possible, including constructive criticism regarding the story as a whole.

If you have any problems with my comments, if you think I'm wrong or I'm focusing too much on the wrong things, please tell me. I'm always looking to improve!

Harry Potter, Hellsing and Sailor Moon are my areas of expertise. If you want me to beta a story within one of those continuums, you won't be disappointed.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a good grasp of spelling and grammar, and in the fandoms I'm most familiar with, I know a fair bit of trivia which can come in handy. And, as I said, I enjoy beta reading and I'll do my best to work with you so that, together, we can make your story what you want it to be.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have been considered over-critical, and I may as well admit that I'm sometimes too much of a perfectionist. Just kick me if I get annoying. As a writer, I can easily get too wrapped up in my own prose, a weakness I'm trying to work on.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll beta just about any type of story, though I prefer those which try and stick to canon. Otherwise, there really aren't any genres I won't beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If anything could be described as not being my cup of tea, I suppose it would be stories so AU that they have next to nothing in common with the original. A stupid prejudice on my part, I know, but there it is.

Also, quite an important note - if your story is centered around one or more original characters, I would prefer that you seriously want to avoid writing Mary Sues. If not, you should be quite good at taking constructive criticism.
