Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi all! So, I guess I should talk about myself, huh?br /

br /

Well, as you know I'm Iron Dragon Maiden, or IDM for short. I'm a college student who hopes to become either a writer, a comic script writer, a screenwriter. As such, I hope to gain experience as a beta-reader and author in self-editing. My writing style is descriptive, but it lacks the quixotic (borderline Mary-Sueish) metaphors and descriptions. Plus, I have a tendency to put very inappropiate puns (not so much for the content but for the timing) whenever I write. I have a pretty weird sense of humor, too. br /

br /

We can always do better so I'll let you know when something is wrong. I'm not going to make up errors and bring down Hell's wrath on the author, but I will call it as I see it. So if it's bad, it's bad. If it's good, it's good. But I still think we can always do better.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spelling and vocabulary, in all of the languages I know (English, Spanish, Italian, and French). Character development and ironing is something I'm obsessive over, even though it can cause me to sometimes overlook the plot in favour of character. But I try not to that. br /br /

br /

I'm pretty good with dialogues, even though I know that I will have problems with very pronounced dialects like Hagrid's speech patterns for example. br /

br /

These things also apply for French and Spanish.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I also have a hard time with overly emotional romantic scenes. And I have a bad tendency of making "shoujo heroines" like Miaka from FY come out /

br /

I also have a bad habit of continuing on and on without a clear goal in mind. This happens when I'm especially enthusiastic about a plot, sub-plot, character or idea. Sometimes, I'll even make excuses just to keep whatever I'm fixated on going. So, you'd better be stern with me and tell me to my face when I'm stepping on your toes, I'll back off once I'm told to.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm game for just about anything. Het, yaoi, yuri, preg, mpreg, abortion fics, transexuals, genderswitch, threesomes, crossdressing, OCs (so long as they're not Mary-Sues or Gary-Stus, I'm perfectly fine with 'em) or any weird pairing stuff (including BDSM). As for genre, anything goes, gimme your best shot! Just don't make it too melodramatic or saccharine. After all, Life is meant to be taken as a joke every once in a while.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
NO Mary-Sues! Or Gary-Stus! As I've said above, I don't mind working with OCs, in fact, if the story requires them, then fire away. But if the OC is just going to be this perfect guy/girl who was only created to be "insert main character"'s romantic interest, then you can forget about it. br /

br /

Oh, and I like romance as much as the next girl, but I don't want it to be the only thing the story's about. Some action, some horror, humor, political intrigue maybe, can go a long way in making a story interesting and original.
