Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
first of all before you think i do not know proper capitalization, i do. this is lowercase intended, thanks. as for my beta details, my style is generally reading over either paragraphs or chapters and then correcting any of the mistakes i see after in one, usually long, message or thoroughly editing it in one go. it’s your choice. i point out any minor errors first, like spellings or grammars. and then i go full out on characterization and the flow of the story. i am a communicative type of beta, i try not to speak too professionally so the general atmosphere is comfortable. there’s no pressure needed. i also correct things with a frank sort of way that would seem offensive to other people, but i think it only appears like that because i get carried away and i’m sensitive about a lot of things on writing. especially formatting and characterization. so yeah, heads up. oh shit wait, i’m also very problematic.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i have a critical eye for wrong characterizations (ooc-ness), spellings and basic grammatical errors. mainly ooc-ness since i study or analyze characters in my spare time. also, i have a way of knowing if a story is going too fast for comfort. i am also very sensitive to formatting. story format is one of the things i notice first in a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
i have trouble focusing on epic-length stories. especially overly detailed ones. they bore me to death and i would rather bash my skull into a wall than read an epic-length fic that has so much action word by word. i will be a useless beta if you try and get me for that. also, in my strengths, i put minor grammatical errors. see: minor. i am not a native english speaker, so i sometimes have hesitation on correcting them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
i read pretty much everything including: slash, femslash, het — but if i cannot tolerate the pairing, i would not beta it. si — i particularly love si fics. oc fics — but i prefer limited ocs. timetravel is okay, au even majorly au is okay. yes, im open for most things. mature themes are fine.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
i would not betaread: epic-length or hero fics. (but if the story has a plot that you think is unique, i might just dig it.) stories with polyamory and love triangles and harems. i do not like love triangles. they’re complicated and confusing and just no. i generally don’t like genderbenders, only a very select few catch my eye.
