Beta Reader/EditorThat very important person a fanfiction author sends his or her new epic to for proofreading before it gets thrown up for the world to see. Hopefully, a beta reader will catch any mistakes in continuity, grammar and spelling that the writer misses. The difference between a beta reader and an editor is that a beta reader just reads and comments. An editor, OTOH, is empowered to make changes to the story. Most fic authors don't want the level of detail that comes from an editor, so they stick with beta readers.
