Ratings I'll beta: •G  •PG  •PG-13  •R  •Adult Only
I can help with: •American-isms  •Canon Elements  •Grammar  •Plot Suggestions  •Punctuation 
Turnaround for an average length chapter: 4-7 days
Beta experience: Many moons ago, I used to beta often for a friend of mine then I stopped betaing for the most part but I still do it occasionally. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: There really isn't anything, I suppose. Too graphic of violence, rape or torture might be pushing it, but I'd still read it. 
Additional Comments: I can be really blunt and most likely I will tell you straight up exactly what I thought and I'll tell you as nice as is physically possible for me to do. I'm always willing to lend a hand to a fellow writer because I know what it's like to just crave feedback and not get it and I know how frustrating it can be. I do bite, but it's just a little nibble.

Beta experience: I don´t have much experience so far but I majored in English and always strive toward "grammatical perfection". Try me! :)

Beta experience: I am still fairly new to Beta, in spite having written and conributed some fanfiction stories and works on several sites, since 2012. School will do that. Finishing or continuing an education is every bit as important, as learning how to write well. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: Please see above note.
Additional Comments: Uncertain

Beta experience: I've never done it for fanfiction, but writing has always been on of my strongs suits.  Thought I would give it a try and see how it goes.
Story types/topics I will not beta: bestiality, pedophilia
Additional Comments: I have a tendency to be verrrrry nit-picky when it comes to reading other people's works (at least, whenever I had to read and offer suggestions for editing/revising other people's essays).  Just thought people should know that if they consider sending me stuff to read/edit/revise/etc.

Beta experience: I've yet to beta any Walking Dead stories so far, but I've beta read numerous other stories for Doctor Who and BBC Sherlock over on fanfiction.net. I like to think I'm good at writing in a character's Voice, if you know what I mean, and I have a knack for characterization and pointing out if a character is too OOC. I'm still a little new to Caryl fanfiction when it comes to writing it myself, but I think I've read more than enough of other people's works to know what to look for.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Meh, my usual restrictions don't really apply to the fics submitted on the site. I suppose if I have a real problem I'll tell you before we get too far into the beta reading process, but I doubt that will be necessary. I'm not very picky!
[edit] Apparently McReedus is a thing on here too. I'd rather not beta read for fics about the personal lives of real people, but other than that I don't think there should be any problems.

Beta experience: I have only betaed for a few friends before.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Nope.
Additional Comments: I should probably mention that I'm not a native speaker. So I won't be of much help when it comes to American-isms and might not catch every grammar or punctuation mistake there is, although I'm not exactly bad at it either. I am good when it comes to plot and canon. Usually, I'm kind and a very good cheerleader. If people want me to, I can be brutally honest, though.
