Most things that would merit warnings. I've only checked PG and PG-13 to be safe; just give me more info and I'll tell you if I'm interested.
 
Other qualifications that may be useful:
I am English like Spike and Giles, ergo I know the country. I am an accredited Harry Potter beta reader and can do crossovers with HP, Bones (series 4+ excluded), Mediator and Charmed. I have done a creative writing evening class and will be doing a BA in it next year.

    Does not want to deal with stories that contain the following:
    The author not using spell check. Or the author ignoring mechanical corrections and giving me credit as the beta. Other than that, I'm really open.
     
    Additional information:
    I'm in my mid-thirties and I'm currently working on getting two of my original novels published and writing my original work. I love to read and write Spuffy, and I think it helps me to beta as much as I'm helping the author I'm beta'ing for.

    Will not beta All Human stories.
     
    Does not want to deal with stories that contain the following:
    I'm uncomfortable with slash or torture. All human too often seems like a Harlequin with the names simply changed to Spike and Buffy, so I'd rather avoid that, though no objections if the dynamic is the same. But it usually isn't.
     
    Other qualifications that may be useful:
    I'm a voracious reader, so can help with any century history, warfare, hard sci-fi and fantasy. Love Firefly, Trek, Harry Potter, etc., but don't know them well enough to help with plot or characterization there, but can help with that for Spuffy. I'm obsessive on grammar, punctuation and spelling on my own stories, so I would definitely be able to help with that.
     
    Additional information:
    I'm rabidly Spuffy and have written several stories that have been well received. One day response on a chapter - max two if multiple chapters.
