Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am searching for a way to make the stories on this site better. I don't think that absolutely perfect grammar is necessary for that. what i do believe is necessary is a good flow. that means that the sentences and paragraphs have to flow together and make sense, and so for what i will be correcting and reviewing, i won't say too much about grammar and spelling unless its totally detestable or easily fixable. What i will advise on is how to make everything go together more. I will give variations of words that you can use so that you can stop sounding so repetitive, i will help you rework sentences so that it can still sound like your own words without sounding jumpy. What i want to see are stories which have a depth of plot, unless they are a oneshot, in which the writing is even more important. i want something that is well written, because i am sorta lazy, but i must say, that i am willing to read just about any kind of story that is good. Also if it's not well written, i will lose the point of helping you with your flow in the forest of fixing your plot. so write something with a quality story before you send it to me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i am best with long stories with multiple chapters that involve close interpersonal relationships. this can be anything from love to beginnings of friendships. i specialize in the relationships between male characters, only because i have yet to break the female psyche. The longer the story, i feel the better chance to develop the plot and character growth. But that doesn't mean you need a long story. if your story is made to be short, don't artificially lengthen it. if you are dead set in doing that, there is very little i can do to help, but maybe help you fill out the plot. But yeah, im better at long chapter stories.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Anything shorter than 500 words is something im just not good with. unless its a poem, i just feel that its too hard to get what is needed in that short amount of words. or if you can, there is no need for me, because thats too short to really work on the flow of the story, which is my specialty. Also, I am not good at horror fics so don't even let me try to help, i can't really really write scary stuff well.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a fan of all things yaoi, slash, and shonen ai. malexmale stories. from almost any type of that kind of story i will help as i can. if its yaoi, i can deal with graphic stuff. i am also happy to review your het stories, but please don't give me graphic stuff for that. I also like reading stories written in alternative and different and fun writing styles. more than just the simple sentence and plot format. this is fine with me because i don't really care that much about grammar and spelling. so if u have that kind of story, im happy to read that
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Im not really sure what i don't like, no graphic het stuff please. no horror genre's please. and... i don't know a lot of the anime or older movie characters well so if your writing in those groups, make sure its a fairly mainstream one. thanks!
