Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
One thing everyone should know, unless I know the series, I may be of no help to you otherwise. That is, when it comes to actual character development and what not. If all I'm needed for is a 'please make sure things flow smoothly' or 'is my grammar ok?', then no big deal, I'll fix things to my best ability and make suggestions where I can. I'll also tell you right now, I reserve the right to say 'no' to beta-ing a fic. I have issues with telling people 'no' and I'm trying to work on it so I stop stressing myself out so much. So, if I say no, don't take it personally; I'm probably just really busy at the moment and don't have the time. Oh, and I always ask that you use some form of spellcheck before it gets pushed into my lap. I don't want to have to try to figure out what "adn tehn e's eyeis gruw softe wit teh love he had in is haetr" means and correct it all when my own spellcheck just goes "...what?". I mean, that's fair enough to ask, right?
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I love writing dark peices. And I love making sure fics have a certain feel to them. Those are the two strengths I'm aware of. If you haven't noticed by now, I'm not great at the whole "sell yourself" aspect of this thing. I just want to help people who ask.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness...I'd have to say the one big weakness I know I have is when it comes to very, very, very symbolic peices. This is simply because, in all honesty, the symbolism just goes flying right over my head when a whole fic focuses on nothing but symbols. Oh, and I've found that I'm not really good at writing fight scenes...don't know why, it's just not my forte.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm the queen of angst, or so I've been told once. And I really love Naruto and Fullmetal Alchemist fics, I eat them up like dumplings. I'm also always up for hurt/comfort, drama, supernatural, etc. I'm up for pretty much anything.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't truly have a type of story that I wouldn't mind taking a look at if someone asked me to do so. I'll look at romance, spiritual, yaoi/yuri, drama, hurt/comfort, the type doesn't matter. I see this site as a place for people, novice and senior writers alike, to come and create a continuation of stories and characters we know and have bonded with. As long as there are people writing, creating, or even just trying to learn how to write better, I'll have no problem with whatever someone wants me to look over.
