Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Ok, this update was sorely needed as the last one was made over four years ago when I was still in high school. Plans have changed and I'm headed for the military but I still love to write so I'm still willing to help those who need it. Granted my stance on Crack fics and plot-less stories still haven't changed. I don't want to read nonsense. I want to know a story is going somewhere when I read it and if I can I want to help it get there. I'm majorly OCD when it comes to grammar and spelling and there are pet peeves that I will harp on you about endlessly until you remember them because, really, they're basic things that anyone who is writing any kind of story should know.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling. I'm not perfect but I'll be damned sure to do the best I can to make your story look great. I also believe myself to be pretty good with the detail in a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Though I will beta just about anything if I'm not familiar with the orginal plot and story line I may not be of much help. In such a case I would be able to help you with Grammar or spelling but not character development. If you want my help in that please send me a link with your story that has some kind of background information about what category you are writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I will beta just about anything, I don't have favorite but I do have a lot of preferences. Check below for them. I will tell you now that my following of anime, despite having gone to my first Con in the last year, has diminished. Therefore you will see a change in my preference listings if there are animes or mangas I have not been following and would be little help in.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
These are things I absolutely will NOT do. No ifs, ands, or butts. Mary-Sues, Crossovers and CRACK FICS! Do not EVER come to me with a crack fic. It will be thrown right back at you with a sign that says GET A LIFE! Absolute silliness to the point of insanity does not go down well with me. I simply refuse to do it. Also OC character fics. I'll read them if they aren't central to the story, but if they are forget it. The story was made with its cannon characters for a reason. Don't send me american cartoons either, unless they're the good ones from the 1990's I don't wanna see it. The stuff they put on the TV today is truly brain rotting. (Some examples I will Beta: Batman Beyond, Batman, Superman, Justice League and anything to do with American classic superheroes. I love them just as much as the next person.)

Here are the things that fall under the 'Maybe" category:

Yuri. I haven't read much of it. I'm big yaoi fan, but yuri just never interested me much.

That's really about it for now.
