|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Heya! You all know me, I'm sure. I've only been a beta once before, and I'm still that person's beta. I've decided to become one because there are so many good fics out there, but are deprived of readers because of grammar. So, I have set a goal to be the best beta I can be!
I mostly try to correct grammar and spelling. I'm not looking to completely change your style, unless you give the say so. I'd also be happy to help you with any ideas you have come up with, and see if they are plausible, and suggest new ones. For the person I'm betareading for now, we contact each other by yahoo messenger. If you would like my messenger to discuss your fics and my betareading, pm me.
I expect from you a clear understanding of what to expect in your fic. Your fic needs to have at least 3000 words each chapter, (with the exception of prologues, those can be under 3000), EXCLUDING the author's note (if you have one). You need to state in the AN that I, dreamfairy101, betaread your fic. If you don't put your heart in to a fic, (And I can tell if you don't) I won't bother proofing it.
I'm only online on weekends, until my house has internet, as I had just moved. I am reliable when its the weekend, but don't expect anything from me on weekdays. I go to school, you know! I can help you with any problems you need, just say the word.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at proofing dialogue. My style might show if your fic is severily grammar deprived. If you prefer not to have my style of writing show, just say so. I'm also rather good at hentai, shounen-ai, and yaoi. I do parodies, as well, but not crack. See my dislikes for why. I reread a chapter many times, in case I miss something.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not so good at reading a fic that's mostly not dialogue. As I said before, I love dialogue. It molds a character, and transforms it. No good at Yuri. I don't do well with fics with original characters, as they confuse me immensely (with the exception of Sailor Moon'a otaku senshi).
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I rather like proofing one-shots, as they take little time. I'll only do a few ongoing fics, to keep my head straight. I've already got one going, so I only have so little epic fic spots left. Keep in mind, I write my own fanfiction, too! I only do fics from my specified catagories. These are: Sailor Moon, Tsubasa Chronicles, Kingdom Hearts, Twilight, Phantom of the Opera, and Cardcaptor Sakura.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I WON'T betaread poems. Not because I hate them, but because poems should reflect however the author rights, and not the beta. I will also only betaread from my specific catagories. (ie: Sailor Moon, Tsubasa Chronicles, Kingdom Hearts, Twilight, Phantom of the Opera, and Cardcaptor Sakura.) I don't like to betaread fanfictions from things I haven't read, watched, or played. I don't know who the characters are. I also will NOT proofread Yuri. Not my cup of tea, thank you. I also don't do crack fics, because I'll end up laughing my butt off, and not catch mistakes. I won't do ANY Final Fantasies unless I've beaten them. I've played them, but I haven't beaten one yet. I'm close to beating 8, so I'll add that once I've completed it. I'll of course always beta Kingdom Hearts. I will NOT beta any Sora/Kairi fics. I won't do it. Never. Roxas/Namine ones are okay. I prefer Akuroku, and Soriku. I'm rather liking Axel/Riku, as well, and Sora/Roxas ones.
