Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I value constructive criticism and discussion about characterization, dialogue and plot. Therefore, when I beta read, I tend to make a lot of comments and ask a lot of questions. I am happy to correct grammar mistakes (especially the apostrophe and pronoun use errors I see all over fanfiction.net); however, when the errors are repetitive and indicate that you haven't paid attention in elementary school, I get angry and feel like I am wasting my time.

If you are looking for a cheerleader who will tell you how great your story is, I am not the beta reader for you. I probably give more criticism than I do praise. However, I think that constructive criticism makes an author really think about the characters and the story and produces a better story.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Constructive criticism, discussion about the story and characterization, especially whether the story makes sense and is realistic, dialogue, grammar/spelling
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to get angry if there are repetitive, elementary grammar mistakes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am only interested in Anakin/Padme and Lucas/Peyton stories. Generally, I like stories where the relationship is paramount.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anything other than Anakin/Padme or Lucas/Peyton. I also dislike stories heavy on action and light on relationships.
