|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not going to say that I'm the best author in the world because simply put, I'm not. Even among aspiring writers I'm not the best but then again, I don't think I'm exactly the worst either. At school, English was not my greatest subject but I did enjoy it and my best area in it was definately creative writing. Both my crative writing assignments earned me a merit grade, the second out of three passable grades (equivilent of I asume a B?) and my skills have improved greatly since then. I also don't have the largest vocabulary but again, it's not the smallest. I like using larger, more complicated words wherever possible and when writing angst I like to forego the ladle in favour of a wheelbarrow. I may not be the best writer but I'm improving all the time. I like to think that I have an eye for detail, up to a certain degree. If you wish to aquire my services as a beta then I expect you to at the very least, have run a spell-check if possible. It is also preferable to have a decent understanding of the english language but I'm happy to fix up any typos, grammer and spelling errors you may have made.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to think I have a decent enough vocabulary and an eye for detail, as I've already said. I'm also a little bit of a perfectionist at times, which can be considered either as a plus or a minus.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not perfect... but who is? My main weaknesses are staying in character, keeping the character in their own state of mind, the fact that my thoughts sometimes tend to wander etc. Also, I may miss the odd mistake but I'll try not to. I sometimes can be overly critical but this normally applies to my own work. I'm a spacy person so I sometimes have trouble focussing.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer anything AU but I may also beta continuations, novelisations, etc. My main preferences in a story would have to be anything with angst, tragedy, romance or drama since I do like emotional secenes but I'm not put off by graphic violence. I would expect all stories to have some kind of pairing (at least one) and Any kind of pairing - no matter how original - will be acceptable as long as you let me know first. I prefer stories with an M or T rating but it really does depend on the actual story. My main two fandoms would probably be Final Fantasy VIII and Gundam Seed but I could give any fandom a go, as long as I'm knowledgable in it. All of this mainly depends on the individual story itself so I ask that if you are considering me, then please PM or e-mail me with the title and epescially an outline of the plot of your story first, as well as the fandom that it is in. Anything I have written for or favoritised I will be willing to beta for but if in doubt, just ask me first.
I'm willing to try any pairing and any kind of pairing.
I accept both Yaoi and Yuri pairings
I am willing to beta a crossover as long as I'm familiar with at least one of the fandoms... of course I will be much more useful to you if I'm familiar with both so that is a preference.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Just tell me about the story first and I'll let you know.
I'd prefer not to beta for children's fandoms or anything Im not knowledgable in.
I'm not a fan of Twilight.
