Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Having realized that moaning and whining about less-than-stellar writing without attempting to allay the situation by offering my assistance to all who seek it was pretty ****in' arrogant, I decided to (drumroll) offer my assistance to all who seek it.

Clever, I know.

Fandoms I feel capable of properly beta-ing: Naruto, Harry Potter and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'd like to think that I am good at any part of beta-ing and writing. I've grown a lot in my writing since I started A Different Sort of Naruto. I've been told that I am pretty solid with fight scenes and descriptions, and people usually come to me for assistance with proper wording, even at work, when writing work-related documents.

My Specialties beyond that are general linguistics, semantics, vocabulary (I'm really good at finding the precise word needed in a situation, or at finding a synonym).

Oh, and I have a sneaky feeling that I'm slightly insane. Which should help with the humor. Or at least make things interesting

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Pedantic.
Really Pedantic.
Really really really Pedantic.
Really.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Naruto: I really only read Naruto-centric fics. While I'm not opposed to Ensemble cast fics, they are more than few and far between, and usually still do focus on one character or another. Otherwise, Naruto must be in a very prominent role. I don't mind a bit of bashing, but only if it's relevant to the character's growth, is logical to the story, or if it happens to Sasuke. Just kidding about the latter, though. Multi-pairing/Harem/Catfight (multiple girls going after the same guy) fics welcome - They're loads of fun.

Harry Potter: Same guideline really. Harry-centric preferred, otherwise Harry must have a prominent role. No bashing unless necessary. Multi-pairing/Harem/Catfight fics welcome.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Xander must get a girl. Don't really care who. I see enough of Xander getting screwed or screwing things up relationship-wise in the Canon. No need for instant happy ending in any way, but Xander must eventually get a girl. Beyond that, former guidelines apply, just switch Xander for Naruto or Harry.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
No Yaoi or Slash. Red line. Do not cross, or I will find a shovel. And use it.

Again, no unnecessary bashing.

Plot-line developments and pairings must have a relatively logical base behind them. This is the Black Line. I will tell your mommy on you.
