|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm new to beta-ing, but I am known in my group of friends for having a very critical eye for reading. I may not have the best creative ideas myself, but I'm very precises when it comes to reviewing and editing. I usually will read the story for its plot twice through before reading it paragraph by paragraph for issues with coherency and style. I'm pretty critical, but I try my hardest to make sure that my suggestions stay true to what the author has written. Given a story and its length, I can probably have it back to you in three days. Occasionally, it might be a little longer, but usually, I'll be prompt in my suggestions.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at humor and alternate universe stories. I love a good laugh, and I'm pretty good at writing things that make other people laugh. I also love reading AU because it gives an insight onto the creativity of the author. I also write angst, but that's pretty rare. I love reading a good sob story or a heart wrenching one (bad ones on the other hand make me want to edit them). My skills lie in dialogue and action writing.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm willing to beta smut, but since I've never written it and most of it makes me blush, I can't say that I'll do a good job. Also, while torture stories are intriguing sometimes, I don't really appreciate unnecessary blood and gore, which might cause me to be harsher than usually. I also can't stand it when a person decides that they're going to completely change a character (ie. Harry Potter becomes this sweet little boy who has a peachy view of the world). Please try and stay true enough to the character so that I know who it is.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like humorous romances. Actually, I enjoy romances a lot. I also like stories with sad endings. When written well, they can really move you. But mostly, I'm open to everything except the stuff in "not my cup of tea"
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Changing the name of characters (ie. Naruto to Ryukagen Shinshi). Things get a little too confusing for me.
BSDM, pain sex, and stuff like that...sorry, not into it, don't really understand the people who are.
