Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader

I'm Kurokiku. Nice to meet you. Well, not meet you, exactly.

Anyway, I'd be happy to beta stuff within the fandoms I'm familiar with. As a general rule, I'm not too fond of characters that are OOC, though OC's are fine. Be warned: I will tell you if your OC seems like a Sue to me.

I won't read anything with lemon, though light lime isn't completely out of the question. I'm not into slash, but I'm not against alternative sexualities either, and your story isn't about me liking the pairing if there is one. So, I will read slash/femslash, as long as the aforementioned no-lemon rule is adhered to.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm capable with grammar and spelling, though I would prefer it if I didn't have to rewrite the entire fic with regards to that. I also have a pretty good intuitive feel for flow and pacing (I think) and characterization within the fandoms with which I am familiar. Pretty decent all-around, I guess, so just tell me what you want me to focus on.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have no experience beta-ing, and I get bored pretty easily. Plus, I'm a college student, so I don't always have the most free time. It may take me a few days to get stuff back to the writer.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer het over slash, but as long as it's tasteful (i.e., doesn't stereotype or make someone's sexuality super-contrived), it doesn't really matter.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Lemons. I will not read anything rated M for sexual stuff. It just doesn't appeal to me on any level. Also, I won't read things in fandoms I don't know, because I feel I wouldn't be able to do those stories justice. Language (swearing) doesn't bother me in the slightest.
