Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I suppose my style is pretty... I wouldn't say brutal, but I'm honest. If I like what you've done I'll tell you, and if I don't I'll tell you. But I do know how it feels to be told your writing is bad, so I'll never say anything like that. Unless it is; my ONE stipulation is literacy. That includes at least an attempt at decent grammar. And for the Lady's sake, don't spam the word "nice".

In all honesty, if I like your story, I will read and re-read that thing till it is perfect!!!!! If I'm not so keen on it, I'll still be pretty thorough, though.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I don't realy know what specific strengths I have... I reckon my main strength is person. Depending what mood you catch me in, I might prefer 1st person or 3rd, but I will beta both, I'm not that weird ^^. I'm better at past tense than present, and I don't suppose anyone writes in future tense much. Except in flashforwards. Which I've got nothing against. But specifically, I don't really know. Sentence structure and grammar, I suppose, and vocabulary... I can't stand it when I read something and it uses the same adjective ten times in the same paragraph. Thesauruses were invented for a reason!!!
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Depending how busy I am, 6th form and all that, I might not have time to read them for a while after I recieve them. I'll try and have all beta-ing done withng ten days of recieving it, but I have work and stories of my own. Also, if I like the pairing enough, I might get a little distracted and not spot errors. But I really do try, I promise.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will read anything you give to me, yaoi, yuri or het. As a matter of preference, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Tokyo Mew Mew, Loveless, JTHM, Gravitation, Ouran High School Host Club, Naruto, and Fruits Basket are my prefered universes, as I know the characters and settings and I'll be able to see if they're OOC or whatnot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I Absolutely, Positively, Without a Shadow of Doubt will NOT read script style fics. I am not joking: send me a script and I will just send it right back to you. I won't even look at it beyond seeing that it actually is a script. Obviously, your author's notes can be script, I'm not bothered about that. But seriously, guys, script is for n00bs and people who belong on Quizilla. You got it? NO SCRIPTS.
