Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have never truly done betareading in a dedicated fashion so I'll be a bit new to this. I will try to be prompt in my responses and helpful regardless of my enjoyment of the actual plot itself. I will have to fill this out a bit more once I have actually done some reading for authors and I have some idea of how I do things.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very familiar with the Ranma 1/2 manga continuitiy and characterizations. I am particularly attentive to spelling and I care quite a bit about grammar, although due to my own peculiar way of phrasing sentences it's not as strong.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have not done any beta reading since the early days of FFML and I am not sure what expectations the authors have of a beta reader. I am only really familiar with a few series other than Ranma, so if you want characterization advice on anything else it'll be hit and miss. I can provide comments on internal characterization but I would not recognize, for instance, that Harry Potter was NOT meant to be a psychopathic body builder.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Ryoga is my favorite character (although I still instinctively write him as Ryouga due to how I was originally introduced to the character). Stories dealing with him in a humorous fashion are my cup of tea.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Character-bashing stories and stories that have, in their summaries/first authors's notes: "deal with it". They tend to indicate sloppy writing or premise and I would prefer to provide objective criticism as opposed to subjective.
