Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have a passion for reading fanfiction. It's my legal drug, but the largest stumbling block for me in editing is the often times HORRIBLE grammar/spelling of otherwise amazing stories! It's distracting and demeaning to a wonderful author, and I consider it an honor to help smooth out these unseemly wrinkles in their writing!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
As I have mentioned, I mainly correct spelling errors or typos, as well as fixing awkward grammar or phrasing. In addition, I can help spice up a dull summery to help attract more readers, and if the author so desires, I can help with title ideas as well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My greatest weakness is my timeliness, or lack there of. I make every attempt possible to get stories I am working on edited and back quickly, but I am a busy student, and have limits on my free time. That's not to say that I take months, or even weeks to reply. I just can't promise that you won't have to wait a few days for a reply. Another flaw I feel I have is that I nit-pick. I have very firm ideas on what works and what doesn't, and I stand up for them. I'm the sort of person who will go out of my way to correct a stranger's grammar.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta for dedicated authors who have every intention of finishing their story. I also would prefer to stay in fandom's I am comfortable with, mainly Naruto and Harry Potter If you have a question about a fandom I enjoy, please contact me or check my profile page! I am always intrested in finding a new fandom to get into, and I will try to keep my full profile listing up-to-date! I do not mind beta'ing for slash or strait pairings, and am not scared off by a rating or situation.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Really, the only stories I would have a problem beta'ing for are stories that are very poorly written, or have no true plot. In this, I include Mary-Sue's and stories where the author or a depiction of the author enter into the story's universe and drastically change the story with their presence, always matching up with their character of choice. That said, if you have a story like this and still ask me to beta you, I will take it on a case-by-case basis as I have read some stories like this that are worthwhile, even while the VAST majority of this type is utter trash.
