|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
i'm a fairly hard-working beta-reader. in elements of life outside of the world of fan fiction, i'm an editor as is. i apologize for the lack of capitalization, i promise it doesn't bleed into my abilities, it's sincerely just a personal vendetta against some letters feeling better than others. that aside, i'm extremely attentive to whatever pieces i'm editing, and am always eager to help as a springboard and a motivator when necessary. i do have to issue a fair warning, though, i can be somewhat critical, and will almost never simply pat you on the back and say you've just done a splendid job. i won't ever be mean, but i'll be thoughtfully blunt when it's absolutely necessary.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i'm very keen on proper grammar, syntax, punctuation, etc. and unless it's a fandom i'm not entirely familiar with, i'm pretty good with characterization and spotting when a character is overly pressed with outside influences. i'm pretty grand at continuity, and tend to view things as realistically (within the realm of whatever possibilites there are, baring crack-fics which are a different matter entirely) and as such am able to help ease the flow of whatever it is you're writing.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
i tend to get carried away at times, and other-think things, and really try to coax out explanations. not because i think people are all basing their comprehension off of a fourth-grade reading level, but simply because unless it's meant as symbolism, it should be fairly straight forward, and that's something i've had to always work through myself. and i can, on rare occasions, let me own personal bias on things take over my opinion, though i tend to try and keep that in check when i'm editing.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
i'm not terribly bogged down with specifics. i love aus for some absurd reason, but that certainly isn't a limitation. and length means nothing, unless it's a hinderance and has dragged something along too far.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
i'm not overly fond of mpreg (particularly anything involving male lactation, for some reason that speaks volumes to me, volumes i've never once been able to come to terms with), but i will read it. i will not, under any circumstances, read anything that is overtly non-con.
