Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I work as hard as I can no matter what. I like angst, hurt/comfort, romance etc. But I'll accept any genre! I would expect that the story is somewhat understandable (meaning that the grammar etc. is generally correct and technically-wise, you know what you're talking about). No M-rated, please.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Punctuation

Spelling

Grammar

Vocabulary

Quick unless busy or procrastinating. A chapter should only take 1 hour at a time if I'm working very consistently.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I might (seem to) flame but I'm really just trying to criticize. OR I can be overly excited and happy. OR (most of the time) I will be too nice and not point out all of your mistakes or bad spots ... I'll say something like 'Oops ... you should look over your spelling a bit more ..." But if you tell me flat-out to do what I gotta do, then I will start 'flaming' (constructive criticism). It was your demand. I'd rather have you ask what you should work on after I beta rather than I should just beta it flat-out. I want you to try to improve.

I'm not very 'normal' with romance scenes. It won't be like "They kissed passionately, their tongues intertwining with eachother. They had a battle for dominance". I'll read that and my first initial thought will be "... the hell? What the hell was that?" Course, I don't actually swear XD. I find that kind of romance really shallow. I don't really like it when people kiss WAY too much.

The romance I beta will be more subtle, with more thought and less ... action. "Her lips were soft and sweet and I was mesmerized by her beautiful golden eyes." That sort of thing, you know? You might not like it.

If I see 'you're' instead of 'your' or vice-versa, I will probably freak. Say something like, I'm quite sure you're smart enough to know what each means. You're means you are, whereas your means it's yours and you own it. It seriously pisses me off a little when I see that, because they are very different.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Angst

Hurt/comfort

Romance

Tragedy

Anything that’s somewhat sad I guess. Humor's good though! I love it!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing with M-rated anything. Nothing like, "They did it yesterday". I find that REALLY shallow. If you want to do something like that, do an M-rated fanfiction and I don't read those, so you won't find any luck with me. Unless you're going to find a clever way to say it and not so that it's on the brink of M, or, again, like "They did it yesterday".

Anything with too much romance is just not my cup of tea. If they are SERIOUSLY OOC then I don't want to beta. For example: Rima stared at Nagihiko and suddenly whispered, "Nagihiko, kiss me!" They started to battle with their tongues, their mouthes moving rapidly with eachother. The blonde protested, "Please, Nagihiko! More! Mmmm," she moaned.

It disgusted me just to write that. And it was only an example. Seriously, I have to go to the washroom now. So really. Not that much OOC. Please. And sick romance, either.
