Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have been betaing things for friends for a while now, so I figured it was about time to actually set up an official beta page.

I can do several different things as a beta reader. I can correct just the spelling and the grammar of a story if that's what you want. If you want someone to just talk about your ideas with, I can do that. Or if you want someone to read through your story and comment on the plot, the characters, the dialogue, the pace of the story, I can do that.

Or if you want all of those things, I can do that too! Really, I prefer (and may very well not be able to help myself) to do all of these things.

As for expectations, I really only have the one. I expect anyone I work with to know how commas are supposed to be used. It really drives me crazy to read something that has commas put all over the place.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are both the technical details, the grammar and spelling part of writing, and also editing and commenting on the plot, the details, the characters. I'm particularly good at that second part. I'm also really good at helping people come up with ideas and working out the plot of a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My biggest weakness is that I'm not good at doing something without any direction. If I've never worked with you before and you just send me a chapter of a story without telling me what you want me to do with it (like whether you just want me to do the grammar and spelling or you want me to do a more complete edit) or roughly when you want it done and then never say anything about it, I probably won't get it done all that fast.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Types of stories I would prefer... I don't really have a lot of preferences. I will beta for just about any fandom, even ones I don't follow. I might even start following something new because I'm betaing a story for it! I will beta almost any pairing or ship and that includes slash and crack ships. I will beta AU stories, or if it's Twilight or whatever, AH stories. I will beta a fic of any length, from the really long epic types to drabbles. I will beta lemons or fics with darker themes or plots or just about anything really. Mostly, I just prefer to beta stuff that's got an interesting story and is decently written.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Things I don't like and won't beta...

- abusive relationships that are displayed as being super romantic (basically cannon Bella and Edward)

- incest (unless it's Game of Thrones, because in Game of Thrones that's cannon)

- fics that the basis of the plot is somebody gets ill with some sort of disease, like somebody gets cancer or something (just not interested)

- Wincest

And that's about it. There aren't many things I won't beta. Oh, wait I almost forgot. I won't do m-preg either. That's nasty.
