Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I first got in to being a Beta reader when I was very young. I started out doing it for a few friends who, thanks to me, had recently discovered fan-fiction. I wouldn't say I'm obsessively neat when it comes to writing, but if there are any plot errors or poor characterization I wont be afraid to tell you that, and I certainly won't hesitate to fix it. Age isn't a big thing for me, but anyone under the age of 16 please let me know, I tend to be quite harsh as a beta, but as I learnt growing up the standard for a 16 (and under) year old is very different for 16+.

There is something you should know about me, and that is I will not hold back. If I find you're story to be, frankly, terrible in what I consider the three main objectives

(. Accuracy . Good Characterization and . Originality)

I will not shy away from telling you. I've only recently begin beta-writing for this particular site, but I have been doing so for a long time. If you would like to see my previous work merely contact me through email or privet message and I can forward you links to other sites and people whom I have beta'd for.

If you would like my help merely email me with information about your story, I prefer stories to come as Word documents or rtf files, but I'll contact you with that sort of information when you ask for help. I don't expect you to agree with all of my advice, after all it is your story, but I hope you will take it in to consideration.

Also, anyone I beta for I would like to ask the permission to put you up on my blog as examples of some of the types of stories I've beta'd for.

P.s I am more than happy to read/watch any manga, anime and/or book if I haven't already and you would like me to beta for it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My english is very good, I'm a natural writer and very anal about things such as grammar and punctuation. As a child I used to suffer badly from dyslexia, but am now a self taught writer and have had several pieces of my work published. I have an extended vocabulary, and am reasonably good at spelling. So if you suffer from poor spelling it wont be a problem. It's natural for me to correct others errors, whether grammatical or simple spelling errors.

My strengths lie mainly in anime and books, and in particular . Gakuen Alice . Bleach . Naruto . Death Note . Harry Poter, Twilight ect.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When it comes to all things technical I wont be much help, I have a vast knowledge for certain things such as Star Trek and Star Wars, but beyond that I'm more than useless. Also when it comes to fics with OCs in Im not great as I don't fully know their character until I get further on in the story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The stories I am best at tend to be Slash, as I am a slash writer myself. Asides from that I don't really have any preferences, as long as I've either watched or read what your fan-fiction is based on Im more than happy to beta.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As I said before, I'm not all to fussy on what I beta. The only thing I request is that you do not send me ANY Harry Potter fics that have Draco Malfoy as a mushy loved up fool, because I will not beta it. I have been sent such stories before and I will delete if sent, they piss me off, good characterization is all I want. Thats it really.
