Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Rules of me being a beta-reader:
1) I will not sugarcoat anything. You came to me to help see what is wrong with you story, not to say "Oh this story is great but there are a few minot problems." No. I will tell you straight out what is wrong and how it could be fixed. 2) Please, and I say this one more time, please tell me the plot of the story and where you plan to take it. I cannot stress this point enough. If you give me the first chapter I will beta it, no doubt. But I will ask for a plot point and where the story is going to go. Do not send me a chapter and ask me if I have any ideas for the next one because you are stumped. I will tell you straight out No way and I won't beta your story until you know what you want to do. I am not here for you to take my ideas and make a chapter of it. I am here to help with any mistakes, out of character problems, etc...etc...
3) I'm not that hard to get along with. I have two rules. And from where I'm standing they do not sound that hard to follow.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a very strong vocabulary. I can go into a description of someone and get them down to the last hair. I critic because I care and I have learned enough to know how to write a story. Right at the moment I am working on a book and my ideas from there help my mind in writing stories strengthen.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I like to drag out things and make characters more descriptive than they should be. Also I have problem with making people a little stronger than they should be, but thats just a little problem I have. For example: When I write a Sailor Moon story I like to make Serena seem more powerful than she really is. I try to make her the way I imagine the superhero part of her to be.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anime: Beybalde, Black Cat, Vampire Knight, Sailor Moon, Dragonball Z, Yugioh, Yugioh GX Books: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Charlie Bone, Children of the Lamp, Harry Potter, Little Women, Outsiders, To Kill a Mockingbird, Twilight, Wicked.
Cartoons: Almost any of them. I am a cartoon fanatic and love them all. Some I may not know as well as others so I will tell you if there is a story I can't beta.
Comics: Batman, Superman Movies: All Batman movies, Disney Movies(All movies with the Disney brand;including Disney Channel Original Movies), Movies based off books, Movies based off Musicals, Movies based off a Comics, Cartoon Movies, Fictional Movies, Action Movies,...the list goes on, moslty about 90% of the list here on fanfiction TV Shows: 7th Heaven, Boy Meets World, Desperate Houswives, Gilmore Girls, Grey's Anatomy, In Plain Sight, Power Rangers, Queer as Folk, Disney TV Shows, Shows you can find on ABC Family, Shows you can find on Nick, just like the movies catergory about 90% of the list here on fanfiction...maybe more
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do same sex couples unless the show is about that. Such as Queer as Folk. I have no problem with same sex couples but when it comes to writing about a straight character in the TV show, cartoon, anime, whatever, I just can't imagine them as anything else except straight. Now if I beta for Queer as Folk I could write a gay/lesbian/bi scene because most of the characters on the show are just that. I hope that this doesn't offend anyone.
