Beta experience: Extensive ghost beta experience in the X-files fandom. Honors English and Literature courses in college. Experienced in fiction, professional and business writing. I will ask that I not be credited for beta reading. I'm tough, but it's good for you.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Beastiality (long story, but it has been requested before). I can't think of much else, but I reserve the right to turn down a beta request if the subjects involved make me uncomfortable.
Additional Comments: Quietly keeping authors off of BadFic! sites since 2001.

Beta experience: I've beta'd for a few people in the past on small projects but nothing too large.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Bestiality, Bethyl (I'm afraid, sorry, just some things rub you up the wrong way)
Additional Comments: I can be lazy so please kick me if you need a fast turnaround. I've written many, many stories and a few metas so I guess that's where my strengths come from.

Beta experience:
Story types/topics I will not beta: Although I enjoy reading NC-17, I do not think I could beta those stories. 
Additional Comments: Don't know if this counts, but I worked as a proofreader in college. Really have been doing that the past 20 plus years (reports, writing step-by-step computer, software and procedural manuals for work).

Beta experience: I have been betaing for various fandoms for around ten years now. While I am yet to do anything for this fandom, I have passed the beta tests in a few different Harry Potter archives, and have done many a story in the Inuyasha fandom. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: I will not beta things with overly graphic sex scenes. 
Additional Comments: I have been told that I'm difficult to work with because I am a bit of a nit picker. If something doesn't look right, I will tell you. I am not trying to be a jerk, I'm trying to be constructive so you can make you story better.
