Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a beta reader for what I'm familiar with. At this point in time, that includes Bleach, Tales of Symphonia, Deathnote, FMA, Rurouni Kenshin, Advance Wars, FFTA, Shaman King, Fire Emblem 8. They're listed in order of amount of knowledge, but I heavily prefer the first three. The latter three are ones I can do, but you'd have to prove to me that the story isn't going to fizzle out in a week or two. If you've already got multichapter stories posted, that's a good indicator. Though I am willing to beta for stories based on any character, I am pro Urahara Kisuke (Bleach), Kurotsuchi Nemu (Bleach), Kratos (TOS), Sheena (TOS), L (Deathnote), Beyond Birthday (Deathnote), Grit (Advance Wars), Sensei (Advance Wars), and Sami (Advance Wars). Those would be as characters, not necessarily being paired up. Original characters are acceptable, even stories that revolve around them, but be prepared to describe them a lot. Also, god character OC protagonists are not welcome for stories I beta for. Nerf them before talking to me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a heavy detail writer for long stories, great with fight scenes and complicated thoughts. I can do short stuff too for comedic purposes.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't do so well with romantic scenes. If I beta that part of a story, I'll most likely be doing more grammar checking than how to make it sound better.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Unless I've worked with you before, I prefer long stories that will eventually become at the very least 10-15K words or more, hopefully around three times that, though more is even better. If it wasn't planned to be, expect it to become that way. I'm a detail freak. If you want to learn how to be one too, come on board.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Though I'm not homophobic, I don't do yaoi or yuri pairing stories. I also don't beta for stories that have no plot or purpose. Stories with god character protagonists fall under this category.
