Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a staunch feminist in my fanworks; very energetic about women, girls, and characters that identify as female getting more representation in fiction. It's what I work hard at, and want to encourage in the fan circles I'm a part of. As a beta I try to do multiple reads and edits whenever I can. My main goal is to improve a story by offering suggestions to what I read, or by spotting and correcting errors. I try to take the carrot and stick approach as well; offer something in the story I like, followed by something I think needs fixing. Ultimately if I've helped someone improve their story (and maybe learned something, myself) then I feel like I've done my job.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a good eye for basic spelling and grammar, and those tend to be the first things I look for when editing a story. Following that, I try hard to keep characterization and the overall voice of a story and its cast consistent with canon, and I'm always ready to refer to scenes from the source material or even expanded works to help with that. I'm a middling talent when it comes to plot structure, themes, and flow, but I have the passion and enthusiasm for helping with those.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have an attraction and attentiveness around alliteration, so fair warning with that. My review speed can be really variable, and if I don't get back to someone in a week, a small poke via email or private message is a good way to get me back on task. I'm also long winded, and need to remember when brevity is needed.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Pro-female stories. Femslash, het, general, original universe or some flavor of AU, it's all welcome if there is a female character at the helm. I'm a sucker for a good love story, the same with adventure, action, or suspense. Vignettes are also a great treat for me.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Male slash has a great spot in the fandom with lots of people who are passionate about reading and writing it. But since I don't match that category, I'd like to request it isn't sent to me.
