|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I expect the story to be interesting.. it is isn't interesting that I really can't help you! I don't -however- expect it to be up to par with that of Edgar Allen Poe or even Douglas Adams.. that -in my honest opinion- is just ridiculous. Generally I like giving constructive criticism, but if a story honestly sucks I won't hesitate to say so. Before accepting any requests I'll need a portion of what you want me to read, to know if I can honestly get into it.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in my spelling, I spell rather well. They also lie in detailing, I have a love for adding massive amounts of detail almost enough to make the story boring. I also enjoy the usage of metaphors in writing to help aid with description. I also have an undying love for symbolism in writing, having something mean something to a character or having something foretell what lies in the future is beauty. I also like using intense vocabulary, I tend to proofread my sister's homework and make it sound smarter. Eighth graders with average reading levels writing like a twelfth grader with a college reading level never ceases to amaze the teachers. I usually get my sister at least a B on previously C writings. Yeah I'm boasting, but I'm proud of the fact that I can make my sister sound smarter, she's brilliant really... just not as open minded.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar. I'm a period whore... I tend to use them more often then not. I never like to really end a sentence unless it's in my own writing. My grammar has been improving though. I have a nasty habit of thinking I type faster than I do, thus letters and words get jumbled it I don't think. I also can get sucked in easily to a piece of work and forget that I'm proofreading.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer ROMANCE, anything with a slightly romantic background I will read. My list or romantic pairings are but not limited to the following: IchiRuki, HitsuKarin, HitsuMomo, HitsuMoto, IshiHime, IsshiMasaki, SasuSaku, NaruHina, NejiTen, ShikaTema, JirTsu, Royai, ZeroYuuki, FuuJin, FuuMugen, FuuShinsuke, MugenYatsuha, JinShino, and a few others that I'm too lazy to mention.
I also LOVE MATSUMISA.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I cannot read Hatefics, nor can I read Fics that Depict any well meaning character or sweet character as a bitch. I cannot read stories that pit friends against one another, even if it's AU. Incest, Yuri, RenjRuki, Ichihime, ShikaIno will not be tolerated. Twincest is OKAY if they're brothers (I cannit believe I said that XD). I ALSO CANNIT STAND FICS THAT USE OOC TERMS OF ENDEARMENT... like "Hun." "Sweetheart" "Darling" etc... unless it's sarcasm. I just hate it when people write stories like IchiRuki, for example, that go like this.
"How was your day Honey?"
"Just fine sweetheart."
.... NO....NO....NO....NO! It's just wrong... they can never talk like that.. unless it's like this.
"How was your day HONEY" (translation: How was your day dumbass)
"Just fine, SWEETHEART" (translation: Just fine... BITCH)
Because Sarcasm is true love :D.
