[BETA APPLICATION] cherrycoloured

Name: Hayley
Tumblr/Twitter: Tumblr, Twitter
Email address: hayleyweber at gmail dot com
How to best contact you: Email or a PM here is best for me, but an ask on Tumblr is fine too. I'm barely on Twitter, so unless you have no other way to contact me, try to avoid it.

Have you written fic?: Yes, but not often, and aside from some comment fic, I have no published stories in this fandom.
Have you beta-ed fic before?: Yes, I have beta-ed some fic in Muse fandom and I often read over a friend's original writing for her.

What are your strengths?
Characters/pairings: Ziam is my OTP and Zayn is my favorite, so those are my top strenghts. I can beta read any of the boys, and other people I have a decent grip on are Little Mix, Nick Grimshaw+the Breakfast Show crew, Ben Winston, and Ed Sheeran. Pairing-wise, I'm good with any Zayn ship, even weird ones (though mainly him with the boys, Perrie, or Ben), Lirry, Narry, Stymshaw, Harry/Ben(/Zayn), Harry/Ed, OT5, and any OT3 that involves Zayn and Liam.
Types of plots/tropes: I'm definitely more into canon fic than AU, but I still love AU a lot. The weirder, the better, but I do have a fondness for the cliche high school and bakery AUs. Artist!Zayn/Zayn going to art school seem to be popular tropes, and as someone who went to art school and continues to draw, that is an area that I know a lot about. I'm also a huge comic book nerd, so if your fic involves superheroes, or Zayn and Liam's love of comics, or anything of that nature, I have a large knowledge in that. I'm also happy to do crossovers, provided I have a familiarity with the other canon.
Kinks: I really, really love D/s and would be excited to beta a fic with that kink. I also like spanking, dominant bottoms, breathplay, fingering, crossdressing/feminization, voyeurism, gangbangs/orgies, double penetration, spit roasting, omorashi, and facials. On the other hand, I also love fluffy, romantic fic where characters are "making love", and I particularly like it when that can be combined with kink. I'll also do het or femslash smut. I have a strong preference for bottom!Zayn, but I am willing to beta a fic with him on top.
Can you Britpick? Very little. I'm not British, so I am not the best person for this, but I can do some minor things.
Other: I'm the type of person who will stop in middle of reading a fic to look up a fact mentioned in it to see if it's correct, so if I you need help with fact checking and research, I'm really good at it. My spelling and grammar are pretty strong, but I'm also open to less convention methods of writing and can help you fine tune that.

What you will not do
Characters/pairings: I won't do anything with Eleanor, Danielle, Stan, or any of their other girlfriends/friends who are not famous as main characters (though them as side or background characters is fine). I also don't really know anything about 5 Seconds of Summer. Pairing-wise, I won't do Larry as a main pairing (I don't mind background Larry), Tomlinshaw, or Haylor.
Types of plots/tropes: Nothing involving depictions of rape or abuse, or any h/c that involves that. I also won't do a self-insert story.
Squicks: Huge no to scat, vomiting fetish, extreme gore, mutilation, milking, torture, nipple or cock piercing, non-con/dub-con, underage, knifeplay, and bloodplay. I also really dislike bottom!Niall.
Triggers: No Nazi fetish or anything that is anti-Semitic, please.
