Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a long-time fanfiction beta reader, I can look for anything for you from style to technical requirements. I am also what you would call a "brit-picker" for Harry Potter or other fandoms or fanfics that require a British dialect or contain British characters and speak fluent French in addition to being a Francophone and American History scholar; I have studied journalism and creative writing as well as mythology. I accept all fandoms, (Firefly/Serenity being my current specialty) but the fandoms that I am most familier with are:
'93 (Victor Hugo)
Angel (FOX)
Agatha Christie (any and all)
Arthurian Mythology The Big Bang Theory (CBS)
Bones (FOX)
Boston Legal (ABC)
Buffy the Vampire Slayer (FOX/UPN)
The Chronicles of Narnia (any and all, book and movie-verse)
Firefly/Serenity (FOX/Universal)
Greek (ABC Family)
Greek Mythology Harry Potter (book and movie-verse)
High School Musical (Disney)
Horatio Hornblower (Mostly the ITV/A&E mini-series)
How I Met Your Mother (CBS)
Legally Blonde (book, movie and musical-verse) Les Miserables (book, film(s) and musical-verse)
Marie Antoinette Meg Cabot's works (any and all)
Monk (USA)
National Treasure (Disney)
New Amsterdam (FOX)
Newsies (movie musical)
Norse Mythology The Office (NBC)
The Phantom of the Opera (book and musical-verse)
The Prestiege (boko and movie-verse)
The Princess Bride (book and movie-verse)
Psych (USA)
Rent (the musical and movie)
Shakespeare (any and all)
Spider-Man (movie-verse)
The Spirit (mainly the movie, but I have a working knowledge of the comics, as well)

I can also beta original fiction.

Have a nice day,
Galinda05 ;)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a keen eye for grammatical mistakes and a good feel for writing style. I speak fluent French, am a "Brit-picker" and have studied French History, American History, American Millitary History and the history and aircrafts of both WWI and WWII extensively.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Although I can spell fairly well, I am tethered to a dictionary if I don't know the correct spelling of any word. I also have a tendency to over look many "Mary-Sue-ish" traits.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love mysteries and romances, if you can mix them, even better! But honestly, I'll read anything. It takes a lot to "bother" me, so to speak. Right now I'm looking for Firefly/Serenity fics mostly.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories not abiding traditional spelling or grammer rules. Anything particularly sexually graphic.
