Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a real stickler for correct grammar, so that's what I'll give you! Please also understand that Real Life can sometimes get in the way, but that I am serious about my responsibilities and won't let you down or take on more than I can handle. I joined because I enjoy editing fics and helping people with their writing, and hopefully to get a little better grammar out there in the world.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm usually pretty good at figuring out what people are trying to say (unless it's really poorly written or convoluted). I have a fairly large vocabulary, but I respect the fact that others out there have larger ones and if I need clarification on a word I'll contact the writer. I've been editing my peers' work since about fifth grade and I have lots of practice. I'm very responsible and keep my deadlines.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm in Japan so it might be hard to get in touch when we're both awake, depending on your time zone. I'm also sometimes very busy with work.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love fantasy stories! My genres of expertise are Lord of the Rings, Doctor Who, Fruits Basket, Final Fantasy (especially XII), Pirates of the Caribbean, Golden Sun, Demon Diary (if you give me a DD fic I will love you forever), Avatar, Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles, Harry Potter, Star Trek (TNG and Voyager being my preferences, since I know less about the others), and any of David Eddings' works.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not read horror stories, shoot 'em ups, war stories (like real war, army/macho types), fics with excessive swearing and/or gratuitous violence, or fics based on reality/pop culture shows/soap operas. Mature-rated fics are great as long as the subject is handled tastefully. Also, if I am unacquainted with your fandom (depending on how little I know it), I may question my ability to make authoritative judgments on your story.
