|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an author that values effort, I like work to flow and read like a novel or a short story of class. I like epics, the more words the better, I find that my beta reading is not fully utilised if the story ends too soon!
I am also a rather picky editor, I like to ensure as well as the basics, I also like a story to make sense. If your fight scene involves a character being able to leap up and utilise the earth's axis rotation to create a slingshot... I'll either expect a wonderfully creative reason why, or I'll tell you to cut it and replace the move with something more realistic.
I basically want work I can develop and I want someone who will actively take on my feedback without being defensive of it. I am someone who likes the work to leave a reader in awe, simply being better than those which are clearly spam fics is not my aim.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am strong with making your fic have descriptive potential, accuracy in tenses, and depth. I am good at avoiding too many repetitive phrases in one area of a chapter. I am also good in that I'll highlight the edited areas and often leave bracketed comments to make it obvious what the edit is for.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Dialogue is one area I am not the best thing in the world at, I have a very rigid and correct style, character specific dialogue is something I'll hold my hands up to. Though I can come up with some genius points randomly, so I am still worth a shot!
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Final Fantasy I - VIII, Alundra, Vandal Hearts, Need For Speed series, resident evil series, Tenchu, Wild Arms, The x Files, 24, X men, Preacher, Batman, Spiderman, Iron Man. All of these are my best known fandoms, though I will happily look at other game fandom such as Metal gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Street fighter, etc... I will also happyil look at Novelisations, post-fics, prequels, Au's... But there are conditions (see below)
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Mary Sue/Marty Stu, Slash, Yaoi... Also no Harry Potter ever! Finally I will only look at X-Box exclusive franchises if I have chance to play them, some I have never touched and unless you want technical editing I won't be much use to you.
