|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've never done the beta-reading thing before, but I'd really like to try it. I'm good at English and Dutch, but no other Languages (Not my cup of tea) If you want me to read your stuff, make sure that it's or:
*A COMPLETE story
I'm sort of an impatient girl, so if you're doing something with more chapters, let me read it when it's done, 'cause I'll be too curious to wait weeks with-on-end to read the next chapter.
If you send me things, I'll read it with a critical eye (haha. I've always thought that expression was funny!) correct the mistakes, and give you my honest opinion. If you make mistakes more then once, I'll tell you how to correct them, and why they're so commonly made... that's 'bout it I suppose =)
Oh, before you send me things, I would like to know where they belong (Like... Harry Potter, Death Note, Alexander, ...) 'cause if it belongs in a catagory I don't know of, I'd rather not read =)
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
-I'll be honest with you, and if I don't like it, I'll tell you. If this is the case, I'll give you some ideas that you might wanna use.
-I'm really good at English, and don't make mistakes (well, almost never make mistakes...)
-Dutch is my first language, so I'm good at that too, though my English might be a bit better... I'm good at the final 'd' or 't' in Dutch, so if you have problems with that, I'm your beta-reading man! (Girl I meant.)
-I've got a wild imagination, and if you have problems with expressing what you want to write, I'll be able to help you with that!
-English expressions: I'm pretty good with them. That's a strength too, right?
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
-I'm pretty picky when it comes to pairings, so seriously, before you sent anything in, let me know about the pairing and the such, otherwise you'll have a pissed off Crazy4Moony on your roof, and trust me: You do NOT want that.
-I'm not sensitive or anything, and I can handle all the masochistic crap you put at me, all the people-murdering (if you're that kinda guy/girl, seriously, I'll read it if you want me to) all the sick stuff. One thing I do not read: creepy foot-fetish stuff. Like, I don't mean simply giving a footrub or something, cause that I can take, but the sucking on toes and nibbling on them during sex or something: that freaks me out. Really.
-Father/Son, Brother/Brother, no problem. I don't do Grandfather/Grandson though. 'm sorry.
-Sometimes I read over mistakes... or like... I place a lot of commas, because I think you yourself should be allowed to choose where to place them... so when you have a comma problem, don't ask me, because I use them even when they're not needed.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have preferences...all I want is that you tell me what it is you wanna send me, before you do. And then I can tell you whether I wanna read it or not. Oh, I do like 'romance' the most =D But I'll take all the rest too you know.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Pairing I absolutely DON'T read:
Remus/Anyone besides Sirius
Albus/Anyone besides Gellard
(Let me know what the pairing is before you send it to me!)
