Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a creative writing major, and I would like to hone my editing skills. In general, for beta-ing, I'd focus on style and not content. Suggestions I'd make would be rewording certain sentences, pointing out awkward bits, and objecting to the use of unvaried pronouns. And if you ask me to look for something in particular, I'll be sure to adapt to that request.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar and spelling (though also understanding when poor grammar is intentional), looking out for OOCness, clearing up muddled sentences.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Fear of offending the author with my criticisms... But may alternately become overly enthusiastic, and actually offend you. I'm also horrible at recognizing passive voice, and use it quite a bit myself. I use emoticons to converse/explain, but don't worry, they won't show up in any actual writing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Obviously, something from a fandom I know... I love long adventure stories and sweet one shots. I'm totally up for lemons, and especially yaoi (kinky stuff is fine, but no... inserting foreign objects). Also fine with Yuri. I also prefer things to be very close to canon, but am open to most AUs. Horror is great, fantasy is wonderful, epic plots are awesome. One shots are fabulous.

My favorite pairings are:

Sora/Riku, AkuRoku, Leon/Cloud

Joshua/Neku

Fakir/Ahiru

Fuuma/Kamui

KuroFai, Syaorancest...?

Syaoran/Sakura (CCS, not Tsubasa.)

DouWata, Doumeki/Watanuki/Himawari

Sephiroth/Cloud, Zack/Cloud

Phoenix/Edgeworth, Diego/Mia, Klavier/Apollo

...there are more, I just can't think of them right now. And I'm certainly not limited to these, I just like 'em. I actually tend to prefer fanfics in which romance isn't the focus. ^_^

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not a huge fan of pure romance... also no crack fics or anything written in script format. Stories that have plot are a must: no poetry or pwps without context. Songfics have to have the lyrics separate from the actual story. Would prefer no incest (Hikaru and Kaoru from Host Club are the exception), no bestiality, no shota, no mpreg (blegh!), and no outright character bashing. No OCs paired with canon characters! _

There are a few pairings I won't read:

Almost any Organization 13 shipping (except AkuRoku and MarlLarx), because they almost always end up out of character. If you're certain that your Org fanfics keeps everyone as the soulless bastards they are, then I'll give it a shot.

Joshua/Rhyme and Kitaniji/Hanekoma. I JUST DON'T GET IT.
