Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I know that it has been forever since I posted another chapter on my own fanfiction...but that is because I have been putting my muse to work on other projects, namely my own original story. I have been writing stories since I was 12 years old, and have been improving by leaps and bound in the last...well, I'm not putting an exact date on it, but at least 10 years. Even I could still use some improvement, but I am usually a better proofreader of other's work than my own. Mostly I will suggest changes that can be made, unless the problem is so big that more than a suggestion is needed...then I may just demand it. _ But I will always give an explanation as to why I feel the problem needs to be addressed, and not just try to put in my own writer's voice over the top of yours. Your voice is always safe with me!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I prefer more of a fantasy mindset. I am a BIG HUGE fan of Bleach, Naruto, and D. Gray-man as well as Harry Potter and The Green Rider saga. I have a deep appreciation for most anything Orson Scott Card (Ender's Game is my Sci-fi bible,) and Anne McCaffery (esp. the Dragonriders of Pern saga.) I am pretty good at finding and fixing grammar and spelling mistakes, and I don't mind reading works by people who speak/write English as a second/third/fourth/howevermany language. I love to help others learn the language so that they can become proficient.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
...I have issues with prepositions. But hey, doesn't everybody? Haha, anyway, I also have a tendency to write as I talk, so I usually have to edit things at least two times to find all the areas that I have continued in conversational English as opposed to written.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Crossovers are preferred, but I will betaread any of the authors/stories mentioned in the My Strengths section.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If there are any yaoi/yuri lemons, I don't like those. In the least. Unless you can write them out tastefully and believeably, I don't see why I should have to be subjected to guyXguy or girlXgirl. As stated, though, if they are tasteful then I usually enjoy them very much, because then it is a character-building and plot-building tool that is to be respected. I have nothing against it if it is, as I said, tasteful and believeable...not just some random, "hey, I met you, let's go do it in some random room of this Inn that wasn't there three seconds before and then pretend that nothing happened at all later in the story."
