Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, theInfamousNeedle (but call me Nee) here.

I'm new to the beta-ing community, but (most of the time) I'm available/can beta fics. I can beta anything in any category, as long as I know enough about it. I can do any pairings, even the ones I dislike, as long as there's a good plot/ it's eye-catching.

I don't really have any high expectations for people who want me to beta their fics, except that they update regularly. It's very frustrating when 6 months after you beta an incomplete fic the author sends a new chapter to you and you don't remember anything about the fic.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
In terms of spelling and grammar checking, I think I'm pretty good. Also, I think I'm quite good at beta-ing angsty fics and fics which deal with tragedy. I can also help make characters or plots less mary-sueish.

I can do comedy and Horror as well.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Romance and Lemon.

I can't help you there. I'm not drop dead bad at it, but out of all the genres, Romance is something that I can't do much about. Same applies to Lemon. Don't worry, I can still beta these type of fics, but I'm just warning you beforehand.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have much preferences, everything's okay. Though I would be extremely happy to beta a horror fic. Or Mary-sue parodies.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
The only stories I will not beta are those who I don't know of. Confused? Yeah, me too. What I'm basically saying is that, for example, I will not beta umm... let's say Evangelion, not because I hate it, but because I've never seen the original thing. I also don't want to Wikipedia them OR watch the entire series, because that would take too much time.

Also, please don't give me Twilight. I detest that Mary Sue infested vermin.
