Ratings I'll beta: •G 
I can help with: •Canon Elements  •Plot Suggestions 
Turnaround for an average length chapter: 1-3 days
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.

Beta experience: I used to beta on fanfiction.net when I was in high school I haven't done much yet. I occationally help CarolPeletier with scenes that she sends me time to time but it's been awhile since I've done a full chapter. But I'm a SAHM and can always find time to read through for flow or help plot.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm willing to help with just about anything, I haven't run into anything I can't beta - I do request that there be warnings if you're sending anything violent or that involves sexual assault or rape. I will still read and beta, I just need to know going into it what I'm reading.
Additional Comments: I'm in the US, Eastern Standard Time. Sundays and Wednesdays are more of busy days for me. Saturdays I am usually busy until evenings, but if you need a chapter looked at and returned that day - or can only work in a plotting session/plot fest those days, I can usually plan to be more flexible.

Beta experience: I used to write quite a bit other fandoms and have served as a beta for others for years.  I'm also an academic, so proofreading and editing while grading papers has been second nature for a long time.
Story types/topics I will not beta: I'm not a fan of RPF.

Beta experience: I'm currently beta'ing for someone over on ff.net who has really a good plot going but syntax, grammar etc. need a little work... I'm also working with her (I guess it's a her) on slowing it down and getting some more characterisation in there so I guess if that's what you want help with hit me up!
