Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will only Beta stories I am familiar with (not Fanfic Stories, I mean the actual published works). This is so I do not accidentally screw you over because I no nothing about what I am assesing. I tell the truth about stories, even ones that I think are good. If I think something has potiential, I'll tell you but at the same time, as a reader, I'll also tell you what I feel is wrong with it. I'm a little wary of smut, specially since I've never actually written it myself, but that does not mean I will not Beta your story if it has smut in it. My peeve is that you don't make it so explicit and "right in my face" that I die of blood rushing to my cheeks.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling and grammer. I pick up on the "there, their, and they're" mistakes a lot. I have a good eye for sentances that see to choppy or long. If something doesn't make sense, I'll tell you. I am also unabashed to tell you if you are going to fast with the story (in my opinion of course...) or if I think you might be going a bit to slow.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a bit of biased-ness in me. (I think we all do though). I've always learned that the shorter the sentance the better, so if you have long lengthy sentances I might have questions about those. It takes me a bit of time to Beta (not realllly long, just a little bit of time) because the first thing I do is read what you wrote, not Beta it out.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Naruto, Harry Potter, Kingdom Hearts, Yu-Gi-Oh (not GX), Princess Princess, Tamora Pierce, Gravitation, Absolute Boyfriend, Karin (Chibi Vampire). I'm a tad bit on the YAOI (XP) side, but I STILL LOVE BOYXGIRL STORIES AS WELL!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Any story I am not familiar with, because I do not want to mess you up for my lack of knowledge. Please note that I am constantly reading new books and manga. My preferred list is only a list of those I know like the back of my hand. I know others well enough to point out if something is wrong.
