Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I try to review the stuff I like and be helpful and encouraging, but I'm fairly honest as well, and will tell you when I don't like something.

I'm harsh when (I think) it's warranted and I'll gush when (I think) it's warranted. ;P

I'm currently majoring in horticultural sciences, and know a few things about stuff.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My goal is to help you form a well written, interesting, entertaining, believable story and/or achieve the goal you're aiming for with the story.

In my reviews I tend to focus on characterizations, continuity, prose, believability, and anything that stands out to me, really. It varies.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I really have no desire to go through and check ALL your grammar and spelling. If you have some questions about particular areas of your work, I'll check it out, but I'd prefer to focus on the content. If I spot something that really sticks out and breaks the immersion, I'll point it out.

If you're writing for a series I haven't heard of or don't know a whole lot about, I probably won't be able to best judge proper characterizations. In that case, I'll just evaluate things in the context of the story.

If I think you're work is pretty awesome in the first place, I might not have much to offer/say. In that case, I'll just tell you what I liked/my reactions and what I think you're doing right.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Just check my favorites! I love Megaman, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and Metroid, but I don't mind reading other stuff. Science fiction and robots rock my world. Halo is cool, too. Xovers are fun (if done well).

In the Megaman category, I run a C2 called the Mother Lode, which demonstrates my judge of quality. By that I mean "these are what I think good/successful work looks like."

I'd preferre to work with people who honestly want to grow and improve their writing and story- that means you need to be able to take criticism. That also means I want to see you put forth some initial effort into your work.

At the same time, I'll also try to give advice that fits within your "skill level," if that makes any sense. IE: Even if you feel you can't write like the examples I've given, I'll try to give advice that augments your current style.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't beta ANY kind of slash or porn. I have no interest in your Axl/Zero/X/Bamboo-Pandamonium foursome. TASTEFUL romance is okay.

I find shipping fiction obnoxious (thats to the Avatar fans. CANON COUPLES ONLY.)

I find Stus and Sues to be obnoxious. If your story has one, I will tell you about it, and give suggestions as to how to make them more relatable and interesting.
