Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't know whats the difference between proof reading or beta reading. I'm not really an expert in grammar and stuff. And I won't deny that my own stories had or has grammar mistakes. However I do believe that storytelling [in written or oral form] should be in natural way as long as it is understandable and clear. - I'm in no way a Grammar Nazi. But I do criticized a sentence or two if it's confusing or doesn't make any sense at all.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Despite literature experts said, I had a strong inclination to first person perspective, switching of character POV, and the common 3rd person POV.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weakness is most likely I sometimes can't understand who's who is speaking if there are no established character dialogue and a little bit of verb conjugation.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer anime/manga genres of: romantic comedy, mystery, and suspense. I don't mind lemon as long as it's not a pornographic material. Lemon is NOT Porn. - I don't care even if the fict is about a taboo or social issues as long as it has complex story to tell. - I also enjoyed alternate universe and will read retelling of an episode/arc so long as its not a blatant copy+paste.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
1. Yaoi. *shivers at the thought*. - 2. Bad Endings that is purely for the author's self-gratification. Stories like this didn't had any theme/message at all but solely to ruin a reader's day. The exception to this IMHO is if a bad ending has a deeper purpose. - 3. Fluff/Romance that involves an anime/manga character with an OC. - 4.[Hate me if you want But I just had an absolute disdain for] any Twilight-like stories and characters. *Please spare me the agony if you had stories like this*
