Author has written 11 stories | Naruto, Death Note, Kingdom Hearts, and Fullmetal Alchemist.
β : Nikki Mustang is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I will edit anything. Long term or short term, one shot or multi-chapter. I occasionally like to correct papers and stuff (it's a nice breather), so if you need school papers edited I can do that too. I'm incredibly proficient in MLA style paper editing. So I'm basically open for anything :)
If I beta your fics, I would prefer having email, IM, or text messaging to contact you and talk with you about errors I find (PM here would work as well if you are not comfortable with those means). There's not really a way to learn from your mistakes if you never find out what they are... and I'm lacking a red pen to tell you so. However, I AM able to mark up copies of chapters with green/blue being things I've inserted and red strikeout text being things I've deleted. In this case, I would send you a markup copy as well as a clean, revised one for your convenience.
I like making friends, so I'd like to get to know you if I beta for you on a long-term basis. If you request me to read through your fic, chances are I'm going to go to your profile and research more about you and your writing style. Don't mind me if I go asking you loads of questions or whatnot, it's just part of getting to know you as a writer and a person.
I am currently betaing 2-3 stories, please respect at least a two week turnaround time.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at punctuation and spelling (then again, I'm sure you all have some form of spell check...). I have a pretty big vocabulary, too, so if there's a word that doesn't seem to jive chances are I can think of one that'll go in there. Coming up with ideas occasionally occurs, and they tend to have good results. Word order's good too when it's on paper, spoken is different because I also speak German.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I read quickly and skip mistakes, though chances are I'll read over beta'd things multiple times so that will be avoided as much as possible. Continuity can be a slight issue, though not major, and it's normally only with writing. Time constraints may prove to be a problem, but since I like to procrastinate from schoolwork a lot it shouldn't be incredibly big either. Commas and semicolons are interchangeable to me. I can take awhile thinking of the right words or punctuation...
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Each story has a place, so I'm basically pretty good with anything. Extraordinarily impossible situations annoy the heck out of me, though, so if you're going canon please make your story plausible. As seen above, an email or IM to converse with you about noticed errors would be nice.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Pretty open to anything. Please don't throw orgies at me.
