Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I try to make stories flow, make them beautiful, and still keep the original author's intentions for the style and the message fully intact. I do get busy sometimes, but if I have set deadlines, I can meet them. I'm more than willing to work with a writer, and I'm not one to fight you on what you say. I only give suggestions, you're more than welcome to take one or two of them, and discard the rest. I don't get hurt feelings, and I'm happy to be at your service. I may be a little (or a lot) slow to respond, so if you don't hear from me right away, it just means I've gotten busy.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
-Dialogue is my baby. I love making voices read as I think voices sound. br / Taking the story that's there and making it have a certain ring that's easy to read, while as keeping the emotional qualities of the story. br / Full character visualization. Down to the fine details. Life stories that never make it into the story a bit, but come into play when I think about how they'll react to things. A tiny streak of Tolkien, perhaps? br / Research and fact checking. (I read hundreds of real life stories, and look up thousands of things to make sure I don't write a story where a guy starts puberty at age 12 when it should actually start closer to 14 for a boy of his body type and level of exercise. I'm gay and childless, I couldn't care less about boy puberty, except for stories.) br / Very slight grammar naziism, minus the lecture about why you're wrong (most of the time).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
-Addiction to ellipses (. . .) in my own writing, even though I know they shouldn't be used those purposes. * Leaving commas where they don't belong if I think it gives the sentence a better sound. * Being either too gentle or too rough. * Action. * Wanting you to have the same full character visualization I do, and for you to share it with me. * Easily bored if there isn't enough drama or humor. * Sometimes cliche, often fluffy when it comes to writing happy romance scenes. * Neeeeeed a happy ending. Need it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
-Dramatic stories. Tragedies, angst, and romance all fit my ticket. * Yaoi and yuri. Smut is my favorite guilty pleasure of all. * Mpreg! * Fluff is alright. PWP is also fine. I'm a lot easier going with oneshots than chapter fics. * Clandestine relationships between star crossed lovers.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
-Boy/girl beyond single chapters of pairings I like. I don't do het IRL, I don't do it here. * Series I don't know. But I know a lot! * Immaturity. I try not to be picky, but I really can't handle junior high think. * Lack of thought or feeling in a multi-chapter fic. * Gender swaps. No.
