Beta experience: Thus far all my beta experience has been for other fandoms, but I would really love to have to opportunity to beta for TWD and caryl :)
Story types/topics I will not beta: Bethyl... but I really don't expect to see that here... 
Additional Comments: I've been the editor of my school newspaper for three years, so I know what good writing looks like, and I know how to make suggestions respectfully. Additionally, I'm extremely enthusiastic about this fandom and its authors, and would love to help in any way possible. :)

Beta experience: I have had beta experience before over on FF.net. I co-wrote a lot of stories with one of my friends, captainty, on there. As such I did all the things that a beta should do. I had a lot of input into the plot of the stories. I also reviewed all the chapters for her when she was done which included fixing grammar, spelling, and punctuation. I've also beta'd a lot of my personal friend's original stories. That included doing the same thing. And of course I am American, so I'm well versed in our language.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm not really good with sensitive issues like attempted suicide. I don't know what the proper response to those types of issues should be and as such I would not trust myself to be able to help with the incorporation of them into a story. I really don't like stories dealing with rape either unless it's absolutely vital to the plot and I think that is a very hard thing to get right.

Beta experience: All editing experience comes from both writing fanfiction and short stories. Various stories within fandoms such as The Walking Dead and others have been completed over the last 3 years, and I have usually been asked to be "a second pair of eyes" for various stories rather than asked to be an editor itself. This being said, I am happy to provide constructive criticisms, grammar and plot advice, as well as help with punctuation and sentence structure if interested.
