Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I'll be honest. I'm what some would call a Grammar Nazi. If you're looking for someone who'll know exactly where to add that period to a sentence, exactly when to use quotation marks, or exactly how a semi-colon works, then I'm your man. I'm a speed-reader, yet I can also easily pick up on small errors, be they in spelling, character model, or even plot itself. I used to browse Fanfiction for hours at a time reviewing people based not on story but on style. It was of course under an anonymous name: I've only recently started using this account again, due to real life issues.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, sentence structure, speech, character interaction, (if I know the plot of what I'm reading, that is) grammar.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'd have to say plot, but that's only a weakness while I'm writing. As long as I know what I'm reading, I can easily piece together plot, setting, theme and mood.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer Naruto, Bleach, Kingdom Hearts, Final Fantasy VII, Resident Evil, just to name a few. I like to know the plot of the original work before I read about how someone thinks that this thing should have happened before that one, and so on. However, as long as it's AU, I can cope with just about any story (All I need to do is Wiki the characters and I'm set, baby)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi. Sorry girls (and guys) but homosexuality is not James's cup o' tea. I can deal with lesbian characters, and perhaps even yaoi in a T-Rating setting, but that's one lemon I'm not too keen to bite into. And please, for the love of GOD, no Inuyasha. I have my reasons. That is all.
