Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I basically just really enjoy reading, and when I read I naturally notice any spelling or grammer mistakes. When I write myself I also have problems (who doesn't right?) but reading someone elses work gives me a uniquely different perspective and allows me to see any errors that may be there. What I want to say is; as long as I'm enjoying what I am reading I am very happy to make any corrections that may be necessary.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I kind have cringe when people use the incorrect form of to/too/two, there/their/they're and your/you're and other words that people tend to easily mix up, due to this I am particularly skilled at spotting these errors and correcting them.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm British and therefore will favour British spellings over American, however, if you let me know that the American spellings are intentional, I will do my best to leave them alone ^.^
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I primarily read Mai-Hime fanfiction, that's my favourite at the moment anyway. I'm also more than happy to read anything for Bones, Criminal Minds, Stargate, The Mentalist, Lost, Farscape, The X Files, The L Word, BSG, Kannzuki no Miko, Strawberry Panic, Blue Drop and Bleach. There are probably more though :p
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
SPOILERS. I'm not completely up to date with all the shows that I watch, and there is nothing I hate more than being spoiled. I am willing to beta anything that isn't going to spoil past; Mai-Hime complete, Mai-Otome complete, Mai-Otome Zwei complete, Bones season 7 episode 1, Criminal Minds season 6 episode complete, Stargate SG-1 complete (including Arc of Truth and Continuum), Stargate Atlantis complete, Stargate Universe Season 1 complete, The Mentalist complete, Lost complete, Farscape complete (including The Peacekeeper Wars), The X files complete (including I Want to Believe), The L word season 5 complete, BSG complete (including The Plan, not Caprica), Kannazuki no Miko complette, Strawberry Panic complete, Blue Drop complete and Bleach season 4 complete. I think that pretty much covers it for now, I will update this list as I watch :)
