|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've been on this site for at least 5 years, so I've gained a lot of experience as a writer. I will check through spelling, grammar, and sentence stucture. I'm also studying English and Writing at University, so I'm serious when it comes to the writing process, and that also goes for writing conventions, plots and genres. I know a lot of techniques as well. I'm a fair person and with give constructive critism where needed. I'm also very open-minded, so should it be gorey, horror, dark and tragic, I'll accept anything.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can only help you with the English language, so if you're looking for help with a foreign language, this isn't the place for you, otherwise I'll help you as much as possible with grammer, spelling, paragraph flow and more. I have written in first-person before, but I excel at Third person and in characterisation, so if that is where you're having trouble, then let me know with the documents you send me. Again I am happy to take on any genre, but there are genres I read less than others - if I don't think I can help with the certain genres then I will happily look over the technicalities (Spelling, grammar etc.) instead. Otherwise, I'm also good with metaphor, if that is an area of narrative you write for.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As mentioned above, first-person isn't my best narrative style, but I have written for it before, so if you're not sure about me, then look up my first person stories (that would be my one-shots) and see for yourself.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will happily beta Fullmetal alchemist, Naruto, Bakuman, Death Note, Rurouni Kenshin, Dragon Ball Z (Manga universe only), Matrix, House MD and most other things. I will beta for one-shots and multi-chapter stories alike. I am also open to any yaoi or yuri pairings, as long as the pairings are plausibly explained in the fiction as well. I will also look at Crossovers as long as they seem plausible and there's a connection between the two universes that's feasible. But other then that, surprise me, I'd like to see if there's a crossover that hasn't been done before, I'd love to know what - if you have any questions, want to suggest if a crossover will work, in other words, general advice for your stories, then please PM me, and I'll be as helpful as possible.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I won't be able to beta for such as Twilight and Hunger Games because, as a general rule I don't like to follow the hype. OC fics are also not my cup of tea, but that's generally it, if you have an OC fic then I'll look over spelling, grammar etc. for you, for the actual story though, I won't be able to help you there. Also, if you've managed to find a franchise that I don't know, then I will have to decline, but again, speeling and grammar help is always given. br /br /

But other than that, i don't except OC's, especially since they are potential Mary Sues and Gary Stues and characters that are too OOC. There may be exceptions to this, but otherwise i'm not a fan. But if you think you can prove me wrong, then please send me your stories via e-mail. My e-mail address is up on my profile.
