| Tler 's Beta Reader Profile
Author has written 7 stories | Inuyasha, Naruto, and Avatar: Last Airbender.
β : Tler is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am quite open minded and have a fairly laissez faire approach. I will respect your writing style and change only what is necessary to make a story flow better. All my suggestions are just that, suggestions. You can take or disregard anything I say at your leisure (though spelling is hard to negotiate, hee).
I ask that you respect the English language and try your best to have already used proper English, meaning no internet-speak. Do not be offended if I point out flaws in your characters (such as Mary-Sue-ish behavior). I will employ the powers of logic and common sense if your story is veering too far for even suspended disbelief to handle.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can help with the technical aspects of writing such as grammar, syntax, and diction. I can't give much advice on plot unless to better the flow of the story (does the progression of point B follow point A, does this aspect need to be brought out more so that revelation won't be as jarring, ect.).
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I cannot help with canon details and related aspects of a story because either I haven't kept up with the series or I can't remember. I have difficulty helping with plot in depth ("How" questions such as "How can I make so-and-so clearer to the audience?"). I am also quite useless with stylistic help because I think that's something the writer needs to find on their own.
Please don't ask me to do anything with poetry.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer romance, fantasy, and fanfiction for anime/manga or cartoons (Hey Arnold). My fandoms are Prince of Tennis, Yami no Matsuei, Naruto, Avatar:The Last Airbender, xxxholic, Ouran Koukou Host Club, Gravitation, Hey Arnold, Jane Austen (Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion only). I like happy endings but the road to the happy ending can be as rocky as you please. Jealousy and obliviousness are beautiful tools to employ.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't read graphic rape or torture nor can I deal with heavy BDSM (mostly because I don't have experience or knowledge to accurately advise on such a subject).
I would prefer not to read anything with an AIM chat embedded within the story. Same goes with excessive use of song lyrics.
