Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am usually very opened minded about when it comes to betareading someone's fic. For lengthy stories, those crossing 20,000 words I like to pay attention to the plot of the story and its flow. That is ensuring that readers are able to accurately follow a storyline. For shorter stories or one-shots I try to make sure that even for the few words an author may write that they are meaningful and readers are satisfied.

I am willingly to openly express my views on something, if I have to offer a critique I'm subtle about it, I know for some it isn't easy for someone to judge your work harshly. My internet access is sometimes screwy, but I make every attempt to have a regular outlet. I am an author as well and its often difficult for me to beta my own work, I can offer advice, opinions and encouragement when needed. I look to help and support authors so their work will be appreciated.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a fairly wide vocabulary, my sentence construction is alright and my spelling ability is quite good. I offer good ideas and I can help with the flow of a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My grammar skills are not perfect, but sufficient, I can sometimes overlook something an author may deem important, I have some perfectionist issues I need to work out.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy slash fanfictions very much, but normal hetero is just as fine. A good Sasu/Naru, Neji/Gaara, Ita/Sasu, Snarry, L/Raito or Sess/Inu makes my day. I like Inu/Kag, Gaa/Hina, etc for more you can take a look at my profile.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I utterly and totally dislike Sasu/Saku and Naru/Saku, I can only deal with this in very small doses. I dislike homophobia and when stories have very little plot. Extreme submissiveness/dominance angers me, although when the situation calls for it and it is redeemable then yes.
