Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I’m not an overly harsh beta reader but I can get detailed in comments. I always try to make my corrections/suggestions clear and I think I’m pretty approachable and always willing to work with the author. I can also be a “brainstorming beta” if you just need someone to toss plot bunnies around with and such. I’m probably not the best pick for a strictly SPAG beta, but I can do that too.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I’d consider characterization (character logic/motivations/development/backstory etc), descriptions, mood, plot-line (watching out for plot holes and such), angst, emotional scenes, and dialogue to be my strengths.

Also can provide "insider" info on Russian culture/everyday sorts of stuff and (US) law school/legal stuff. (With limits and given that I'm going on personal experience and such, but yea.)

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Pacing in longer fics, probably. I'm also not a Grammar Nazi at all. My grammar is generally fine, but my punctuation can get iffy, I admit. So if you're looking for a stickler, that's not going to be me. I'm also not British and thus can't Brit-pick.

Oh, also sex scenes. If it's part of larger story, I can beta it the way I would any other scene, but if you just want help writing the hottest sex scene/PWP you can, I'm not your girl.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter:

Primarily interested in stories focused on Slytherins, Death Eaters, Purebloods, etc. Of the Gryffindors I'm down for Lupin and Lily Evans if focused them personally or in a pairing with a non-Gryffindor. Of the NexGen kids, I have a preference for: Scorpius, Albus, Lysander and Louis.

Game of Thrones:

Mainly interested in Jaime, Sansa, Tyrion and/or Quentyn Martell

I'm good with slash, gen, het, femslash (in roughly that order of preference).

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
PWPs. Would generally prefer to not beta fics where (explicit) sex is an overwhelmingly large component. Also, no very kinky stuff.

No threesomes or polyamory, please.

HTGAWM fandom:

Will not beta Connor/Oliver or fics focused on Annalise or a pairing with her.
