Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a stickler for spelling and grammar; and as I read quite a bit, I am good with sentence structure. I will take on even the most hopeless cases, but I can't stand to read things in a play-writing style. I think of it as unfinished. Even Shakespeare drives me up the wall. I won't leave any fics that I beta in that style, so please don't ask. I try my hardest on my own fics, but I do better with others'. It is easier for me to see mistakes in someone else's work, for one reason or another.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am taking a business English class this semester, so I am greatly improving my sentence structure skills. I am terrific with spelling, and I have a good vocabulary. I also know many different writing and speaking styles, so it is not a problem for me to write in a certain style of speech for a certain character. I know how to write in a business letter style.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I only speak English. I am a perfectionist; and I do not do well with people asking me to leave mistakes where I believe that they should be fixed, especially in the plot. I am a slow typist. I get easily distracted. I am not perfect with sentence structure yet, though I hope to be by the end of the school year. I lose motivation more easily if the story is not a topic that I find interesting. If I don't know the plot or characters in the tory, I can't fix plot mistakes. I can't write good sex scenes, so don't even ask it of me unless you want totally cheesy ameture porn.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Harry Potter, Naruto, Firefly/Serenity, Inuyasha, NCIS, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Twilight, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Artemis Fowl are all stories with characters and plots that I am familiar with. I also like crossovers between any of these. I really enjoy yaoi and yuri (A.K.A slash and femslash), so I will gladly beta those type of stories for you. Contact me if you think your story would interest me even though I didn't specifically mention it, since I do forget things sometimes; and I may have read/watched/become familiar with it and forgotten.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I really dislike most straight fanfictions, with only very few well-written exceptions. Any categories other than the few I listed will be difficult for me to beta, because I am not familiar with the plot and characters. I don't like to read stories written in play-writing fashion, though, if the plot is interesting, I will make an exception.
