Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So yeah, I’m Pig ^^ Um well, what I can contribute to the story is basically a good, well defined idea of the plot. Also, trying to make the characters as on-character as possible, because this way, the story is much more realistic and credible. I could say that I pick up mistakes pretty fast, however, I kind of suck at grammar, spelling and such, since English is not my first language. I am more into Yaoi/Slash kind of relationships because that is what I like, but I'll be glad to help you in whatever genre you write in. I take a certain liking for small angst filled parts in the relationships, it makes it all interesting. I promise that I will be nice ^^
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I consider myself good at planning of stories, creating scenarios, making romance scenes (It is so weird though, because I can be so anti-romantic at times haha) and physical descriptions. I also like Comedy and Humour, without them, the world would suck a whole lot more. I simply can't see myself doing a completely serious story but I could try. I would consider myself good at keeping the personality of the characters on line, because usually what happens when you write is that you get so caught up in the story yourself that you just type things you would say. So you could end up with really serious characters saying that they love pink and ponies. It sounds ridiculous now, but it really does happen!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
English is not my first language so my grammar and sometimes sentence construction sucks. But I don't blame it all on that, but on the fact that I usually do this things at 2pm when my brain is in constant brain-fart state, so if I can, I will do all this beta-ing during the day time. Also, I really do smell at fight scenes(for Naruto, which has lots of Jutsus and such. They can be a biatch sometimes). I guess I can't do bloody horror stories either because the scenes are WAY too graphical in my head and (as I said before, I do the fanfiction stuff very late at night or very early in the morning) it just messes up my sleep.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love Yaoi/Slash stories so if you are one of those people then bring it on, I'm ready. I am basically a sucker for anything that's man on man action hahaha. Another thing, I like Humor and Parody fics too, sarcasm is the best weapon for entertainment. Angst and fighting is awesome too, especially when mixed with romance and all, as I said before, it makes it all a little more interesting. I like suspense and crime and murder scenes as long as there is not much blood involved. Umm what else could I add besides, just give it a try and ask me to read your story, I'm sure I can help.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please, I beg. DONT send me rated M stories that are about gore! Fights get me sick and bloody descriptions make my stomach churn (I am such a sissy for Christ sake's...). I can't really do Mystery because I found it a little boring yeah. Sorry...
