Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm what one would call a..."gentle" person when it comes to stuff like this. I don't come right out and say "Man, this sucks, re-do it or die!!", and maybe that makes me a bad beta-reader. I'll give some hints as to what needs to be changed, or wether or not the story's even good, but only if you ask my opinion. My expectations aren't demanding at all--all I request is patience. I'm only on the internet about once or twice a week, if I'm lucky, so beta-reading may take awhile for me.
I really only Beta-read for friends, so I may not be very good. Please regard me kindly!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at grammar, certain types of characterization, Ye Olde English speaking, Historical Information (about certain places, wether they're fictional or not), Japanese Honorifics, English Honorifics, and certain words in the Japanese language. I'm relativley good at Spelling, but, as you can probably tell, I'm not the best speller to grace Fanfiction.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling certain words, Present Day Cultural Information on any place besides America and parts of the U.K. When it comes to certain types of characters, I'm not very good at characterizing them (I.E. Riku from Kingdom Hearts, Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean, Kyo from Fruits Basket).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories with Original Characters in them, Stories without Original Characters in them, Heterosexual Pairings, Fluffy Yaoi or Yuri only. Hardcore Yaoi or Yuri makes me blush. D:
Canon Pairings for me (like KyoTohru from Fruits Basket-- pairings the Author/Creator comes right out and tells you they are a couple, or are about to be).
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Hardcore Yaoi or Yuri. Non-Canon Pairings (Pairings that the Creator dosen't come out and says actually exsists. Think HarryDraco from Harry Potter, JackMonkeyJack from Pirates of the Caribbean, something like that.). I'm not good at incest, namely because I'm not a fan, but I'll read it if asked. Crime Genre Fanfics in which there isn't really any crime (Sora from Kingdom Hearts becoming a Mob Boss, Naruto from Naruto kidnapping someone just 'cause he felt like it, Harry from Harry Potter joining a gang). And, finally, Out of Character stories, unless they're humor.
