Beta experience: I am a total beginner with fanfiction, but interested in trying my hand here. I am great with punctuation, spelling and grammar. My only real editing experience, aside from helping my kids with homework (after homeschooling for 7 years) was assisting my husband with his college papers when he was finishing up his degree a few years ago.
I'd prefer to start with relatively short stories or chapters, as I have not done this before.
Story types/topics I will not beta: Crossover fic, unless it is with AtS. I am unlikely to be familiar with other shows.
Additional Comments: I am more familiar with BtVS than Angel, but have a general grasp of AtS, just not the fine details. Familiarity with Ramones songs & punk bands. :)

Beta experience: I don’t have any beta experience, so I’m not expecting a huge influx of requests. But I’m always happy to help out. 
Story types/topics I will not beta: I’m not really into stuff like gore and extreme descriptions of sexual violence or anything like that. That’s not to say I have anything against sex stuff, but not really heavy things like 50 Shades of Grey BDSM. 
Additional Comments: I’ve been called an excellent peer reviewer, and I tend to have a fair amount of free time.

Additional Comments: I'm owner of the blog The Comic Slayer, in which I answer doubts and share various information about the comics. I'm helpful with research on canon storyline, characterization based on actual development, minor details the comic may have added, etc.

Beta experience: I did do some online beta work when I was younger as a sort of exchange between another author and myself, drawing a blank on their name, but most of my experience comes from evaluating friends works and academic papers. 
Story types/topics I will not beta:
Additional Comments: I think the only other thing for me to add is that I'm a fairly quick reader, so if you'd like quick turnaround on your work then I'm your gal.

Beta experience: I have not beta'd anything of late. However, I have excellent English/Grammer skills. I enjoy reading a story that is easy flowing with proper English/Grammer and want to help writers go from writing good stories to writing stories everyone wants to read. 
BTW Timing above is contingent on my work schedule. My goal would be 1 or 2 days depending on length of submitted work.
Story types/topics I will not beta: All is negotiable.
