β : HalfMagyk is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I usually read through something several times, first for conventions, then for story, then characterization, etc. I can be blunt or I can be nice. I'm much better at being nice. Either way I'll make sure you know how to make yor story better. It's nice if your story has a good structure and format, and a strong plot. If not, I'll just do my best.
Do not fear me. I won't attack you. I won't be mean to you. I do expect you to take this seriously and not to take offense at corrections I make. It'd also be nice if u ddnt use txt spk 2 much. It just irritates me.
I'll be nice to you, though. Or at least civil. I promise.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at conventions and characterization. I can spot errors very easily and quickly. I'm good with spelling. I'm also fairly perceptive and can keep track of and find problems in the timeline of stories. I do well with trimming stories (taking out unnecessary stuff) too.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I can lose patience, especially if I don't like the plot. I'm not great at plot problems (fixing them, sometimes catching them). I take a pretty long time to read things over. I could take as long as 4 days.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like almost all story types.
In Naruto: Akatsuki-centric is very good. Yaoi's fine. I like a lot of het couples but I'll most likely take your story even if I don't agree with the couple.
In Rent: I've only seen the movie, just to let you know. But here, anything goes.
For all: I like action and stories that make you think. Tearjerkers are nice.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please, no lemons or anything rated M. That means ever and for anybody. I'll do yaoi (slash, boy/boy) but please no yuri (femmeslash, girl/girl). Light fluffiness here and there if you NEED the yuri, but nothing huge.
I don't really like overly long stories. I write oneshots myself. Most cases, don't worry, but if the story drags on, I'm gonna tell you.
Absolutely no crossovers.
