Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Let's get this out the way. I really try not to just fix your mistakes. I generally correct a mistake and explain why it's wrong and show you ways to fix it. If your grammar is atrocious, I'll help you and teach you at the same time. I WILL NOT WRITE YOUR STORY FOR YOU. I will offer ideas and provide optional sentences here and there when needed. I'm used to reading the same draft multiple times until it's as free from errors as I can make it. I love to edit people's work in order to make it better, but I have to be interested in the fandom and (if romantic) the pairing. If one of your fandoms isn't on my list but for some reason you're reading this, PM me and we'll talk. I didn't bother naming them all. I'm not going to bother you about things such as your style of writing (to each his own). I'm fine with the docx system, and I never take longer than three days to respond (usually it's a day though). My time zone makes it a bit hard but I try to fulfill the expectations of the writer I'm helping out and will adjust accordingly. If you want brutally honest critique, I can do that but I normally work on editing, with a few pointers here and there when you're going OOC, missing the plot etc. Basically, I'm willing to be flexible as long as I'm interested in your work. I don't do Mary Sues/Gary Stues, OCs or reader-inserts. I will not write for you. I especially love fanfiction about Harry Potter or anime, more so if the anime is KHR, Durarara!, Naruto, One Piece and Bleach. If it's yaoi, I'm even more for it.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a discerning eye for grammar and spelling, as well as fixing ambiguity and improving paragraph construction. I can provide many ideas to cure writer's block and can spend hours helping you beat out an idea if it's necessary. I will point out OOC-ness, unless it's called for, and really enjoy helping people to add tension/drama to their writing when necessary. However, none of this means I will write for you.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not that good with humour, unless it's perverted and even then... Crack I love reading but I'm not good at encouraging. I can help with lemons and other mature content, but don't ask me for too many ideas there. I prefer reading it rather than coming up with inventive ways to do it... I'm also a bit biased (though flexible) with my pairing choices (if you're writing Romance).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't mind general, but I must like the story line. Crossovers! Time-travel! Romance is usually my favourite and yaoi, especially in the anime verse. If your story is set in Kuroshitsuji, DuRaRaRa, Naruto, One Piece, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, Kuroko no Basket, Bleach and No.6, I would love you all the more. For Harry Potter, anything EWE. I hate most of the canon-pairings. If it's a someone-actually-gives-a-crap-about-Harry story, sign me up! Sirius and Fred living is also really nice.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Twilight, genderbends and Mary Sue/Gary Stues OCs. Next Gen fics for any fandom. Creature inheritance. Everyone-loves-one-character stories. Let's-turn-the-main-character-into-a-wimp/fem/super!uke/Gary-Stue-in-disguise stories. Anything that coincides with the Naruto or Harry Potter epilogues. Characters who are WAAAAY overpowered for no reason.
