Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I would consider myself to be a quite tolerant beta reader. Normally I will correct grammar and make notes at the end of the story about characterization and the like. I don't mind stories of any length but I prefer to have something longer than 200 words.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good at picking out flaws in characterization and the flow of the story. I am also good at pointing out whether an original character is starting to become a Mary-Sue or a Gary-Stu. It good at editing work to make it shorter, and changing words to make the story an easier read. In my specific fandoms I am also very good at checking facts and making sure that it works as a fan fiction of that genre.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not the best grammar and spell checker but I do my humble best. I may not be as strong on Green Wing as my other categories as I have only just finished watching it recently. It can take time for me to review my facts for your fiction to make sure they are 100% so I will always have your fic for about a week or longer before returning it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd really love to beta most things but Supernatural, Alias, Glee and Party Animals fics are preferred.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't mind original characters, in fact I love them, as long as they are not overtly Mary-Sue. Sorry to all those Wincest fans out there but it's not my thing, same goes for Rachel/Quinn pairing for Glee. I'd prefer stories that are not overly graphic in either violence or sex. More than anything else I don't want to beta stpries where the author doesn't want to listen to any suggestions, if you think your work is perfect just the way it is then there is no need for a beta reader, please don't make me waste my time if you KNOW your story doesn't need improvement.
