|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Yo. You call me Nippi or Kaya, alrighty? Okay. Now... My style concentrates on flow, and making sure that your story makes sense. If I find a part that doesn't make sense, I'll ask you what you mean by it (if it isn't clear enough to me to change it based on what I see), and then alter it to make sense. I'll make my changes in red so you can see clearly what I changed, and nobody's trying to make you do anything; if you don't like what I changed, feel free to change it back. I guess more than anything, I'm a second opinion before you put it out to the public.
That said, I'll need your email address and/or a messaging service I can contact you on (I use Skype, Xfire, and Windows Live), because I will no doubt have questions about what you mean at certain parts before I'm finished. Either that, or we can toss the document back and forth a whole bunch of times before we get things sorted out. You know. It's your choice.
I'm pretty quick about getting back to you on a piece of writing, but I am still in school, so if I take a couple days then don't get all up in arms, I'm probably just busy. Weekends are generally a bad time to get ahold of me, though I check my email at least daily.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a grammar nazi. Yeah, it's a crude description, but I really am. So I'll be able to get the construction of your writing to where it's understandable, and there's no inconsistencies. I'll correct any mistakes in spelling and grammar that I see, but please make an effort. That's all I ask.
I concentrate a lot on flow, so that you can make yourself understood and your story reads smoothly. I also work some with characterization (keeping the character in-character to whatever in-character you cast them as), but not as much by a long shot.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm less than brilliant at finding weak points in a plot. I've always upheld that the plot is your own responsibility, because it's not your story without it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like dark stories, but only to a point. Also, I will beta yaoi stories, and prefer them somewhat over het, though I will do that, too. Explicit content is fine with me. Most pairings in the categories on my list will work for me, but I’ll tell you if your story is one that I specifically don’t like. Let's see... I like crossovers, but only if it's feasible (as in, you have a decent explanation for it, just throwing characters from two different categories together in a room doesn't cut it) and I know both categories.
I'm not very picky about what categories I will and won't beta for. Pretty much, if I know a decent amount about the series, then it'll be on the list, and I'll do it.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I refuse to read any story that has an OC as anything resembling a main character. I understand the occasional need for a random character to fill a tiny blind spot, but... you get it. I also don't want to beta yuri stories. I won't beta excessively angsty stories, or anything dealing with suicidal themes. I'm just not willing to go there.
