Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am someone who generally does not mind helping others on the condition that the one I'm helping has the courtesy to show respect for both me as a person and the fact that I am using my time and energy to help them. I do not tolerate impudence or anything of the sort. When betareading, I will point out as many mistakes as I can (not for the sake of it though, mind you), but since its not my story, I will be unlikely to do all the correcting. I may give a few pointers on plot if needed, such as if your story is using a blatantly cliche idea without any original twists. A kind warning from me to you however, I am a HARSH critic when I DO criticize; the point of getting a betareader is entirely nulled if you are just looking for praises.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very meticulous and picky on details. I love spotting plot holes. I am a specialist in character design (visually, personality, and background). I am also an analyst in setting mechanics - AU (Alternate Universe) and EU (Expanded Universe) writers will probably benefit from my advice. I'm also good with pacing the emotions and dynamics of a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Moe. Fanservice. Yaoi. Yuri.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Funny stories and cute pairings are particularly welcome. A valid plot preferred. Although not a preference, I will tolerate lemons. Before you send me anything, if your story has any pairings, please see my pairing preferences listed in the last section of my profile.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not read yuri or yaoi; it just doesn't appeal to me. I also don't like stories with no plot or where the plot is far too cliche (ex. Americanized high school romance w/ happily ever after ending). Any story featuring Anti-Sues (fat, ugly, weak, hated O.C.s especially as a main char of the story) are not welcomed at all; I don't like feeling painfully depressed -EVER-. No heavy gore with limbs or organs flying everywhere please. Before you send me anything, if your story has any pairings, please see my pairing preferences listed in the last section of my profile - I will not beta for any story featuring a pairing that I dislike.
