Beta-reader: Yes
Gender: female

Mother, wife, aspiring author, fledgling artist, and wannabe fitness junkie with a dash of geek thrown in for flavor.


If you are looking for a beta reader:


Fandoms I beta for: Star Trek (TOS/AOS, Enterprise), Labyrinth, Thor/Avengers & anything I have a passing familiarity with (other than those listed below).


Fandoms I do not beta for: Twilight, Harry Potter, 50 Shades of Grey & anything I do not have any familiarity with.


Genres/styles/ratings I will beta for: Het, Drama, Comedy, Romance, Crack!Fic, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship, Family, Fluff, Action/Adventure, Thriller/Horror, Fantasy, Supernatural, Ratings K - M (M is okay for violence, language, and/or sensuality--not explicit depictions of sex).


Genres/styles/ratings I will not beta for: Slash, PWP, Lemons/Limes, BDSM, Songfic, Real Person fic, Fics featuring rape/physical and/or verbal abuse (particularly against women or children), Underage sex, Rating MA/NC-17.


I will beta for an original story if it doesn't contain any of the aforementioned criterion.


Strengths as a beta: Style, most grammar, authentic characterizations (and character arcs), building tension, omitting needless stuff, believable plots.


Weaknesses as a beta: Commas. Seriously. I'm right about their placement about 90% of the time, but I still flub them here and there. I'm also pretty busy in real life, so I can't always do same-day or next-day beta-ing.


I am a tough but polite beta, and I do inline notes.
