Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First thing I want to say is that I decided to become an official beta after looking for one myself.

I wasn't looking for anyone to simply correct grammar/spelling mistakes, but to also give me criticism - harsh if needed. What I look for in a beta is also what I am as a beta. I will correct grammar/spelling mistakes, but I'd rather correct something larger than that, or at least point to a problem - like a paragraph that just doesn't fit, a chapter that doesn't really coincide with another, descriptions, OOCs, etc. I get very annoyed when the first sentence of a beta profile has a spelling mistake: and the mistake is "grammer". I cannot stand it, and I think I closed more than a few windows while looking for my own beta because of that.

Other things I won't stand are punctuation errors - it kills me, and if you're really terrible at it, I won't even want to correct your work - and someone who just cannot write. I hate reading fiction written by someone with no writing experience. It's just annoying to no end when everything is wrong - and I'm not talking about grammar and spelling.

I'm a great person to talk to, and I understand if a chapter is late. I write, myself, and read a lot.

I'm okay with yaoi and yuri, and can help writing both, although I don't know if I'd be that much of an aid while writing yaoi since I've never written any myself.

I can be contacted by PM, and I have a hotmail account, that I also use for chatting, so if you want live feedback, we can manage something.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a fairly good vocabulary, so if you're in need of a Webster, I'm your girl. I'm also a very good corrector when it comes to grammar/spelling, even though that's not really the only thing I want to do. I give a LOT of ideas and examples, and will not hesitate in telling you exactly what I think. Also, I'm quite good at anything sex-related, so if you're writing a lemon, I'll be great at beta reading it. Also, I'm fluent in French.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm sarcastic, and I don't always sugar coat my criticism. I'm not always very fast, as I'm often busy with other things, but I do my best and it doesn't take me more than three or so days to beta read a chapter and send it back.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love Inuyasha, although many other mangas and books are welcome, too. I don't really have that many preferences - requirements, actually. I love songfics, but if you're writing one, be prepared to send me the song. I'm a bit lazy and won't feel like downloading it myself. I like mature stories - I'm not into anything below a M or MA rating.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
There is nothing I wouldn't beta read, although something too fluffy for nothing will just make me sick. Fluff is nice, but in the right amount. I don't mind anything dark, but I'm not really one for horror. Also, if the fic is mostly action/adventure it might be hard for me to beta read since that's not really my main interest.
