If you're thinking of requesting me as a beta, be aware that I tend to be a fairly brutal editor. If you're looking for someone to pick your story apart to make it the best that it can possibly be, then I'm the beta for you! I like to read stories that are grammatically correct and have minimal misspellings, and I'm sure you do as well- I consider it my job to help your story become one of those that I love to read. I'm also good at finding flaws in logic or story sequencing that may lead to some confusion from your readers- I have a minor in literature (classical literature- a.k.a. Greek and Roman Stuff.)so don't worry if your story is convoluted- I can muddle through! I feel that it's important for a story to reflect the passion the author has for his or her subject, and I also feel that it's easy for a reader to lose that spark that makes each story unique if it's full of errors. I'd like to help you become the writer you aspire to be and to gain the knowledge you need to create a work that your readers won't be able to put down until they've reached the end!
It's important that I be a follower of the fandom I'm editing. I'll be able to more effectively critique your work if I've got a bit of background on the subject! I prefer anime/manga fics, but I have been known to read some game fics as well. My faves are:
Bleach: I prefer Bya/Ren or Ren/Bya, Kyouraku/Ukitake, Ichi/Ishi, and Ichi/Hitsu in this order. I refuse to read Bya/Rukia. Ew. I've also been known to read a Shu/Kira fic every now and again, But Byakuya and Renji and Kyouraku and Ukitake are my OTPs.
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles: Kuro/Fai. Duh.
Get Backers: Ban/Akabane, and Ban/Ginji
Ouran High School Host Club: Tama/Kyo, and Hika/Kao. Please don't make me read Tama/Haruhi, I beg you.
Fruits Basket: Many pairings. I like Hatori... not a big fan of Tohru... dunno why.
Junjou Romantica: All canon pairings, Especially egoist.
