|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi. They call me Beyond Birthday Forever, though I'm acceptable with being called BB. I'm a normal beta reader, I'll read through just about any story, but I have a couple of exceptions: no Mary Sue characters (yes, I will tell you if your character is a Mary Sue, I'm not afraid to do that), no insane grammar mistakes (text speak is one of these things), and absolutely no demands of me. Like you, I have a life outside of FanFiction and sometimes it takes up more time for me than anything else. If you wish to ask me to be a beta, just send me a PM. I'll read over it, and I'll get back to you. If you're going to ask me to be a beta, I'd like it to be in a courteous manner (saying "plz beta 4 me" will not work). I expect you to give your best in a fic, and if you don't, I'll be there to point out mistakes. I'm sometimes a little bit of a perfectionist, so...yeah...If I start to get on your nerves, I'm sorry. Forgive me for that.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm really good at pointing out mis-spellings, gramatical errors, run-on sentences, etc. I enjoy reading horror stories (so I'll beta them at any time, especially if they have some blood/gore in them), and I'll do romances, too. I like doing hurt/comort, some angst, things that are generally sad.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Comma-splices...I'm really bad at pointing those out. I try, really...but sometimes they get by. If this happens, I'm sorry. I'm also harsh when it comes to telling you something.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anything with yaoi pairings, mostly. I'll read K-M, and I'll read mainly tragedy, angst, romance, hurt/comfort...etc. My favorite couples to read are (Yu-Gi-Oh!): Yami (or Atem) and Yugi, Ryou Bakura and Yami Bakura, Yami Marik and Marik Ishtar, and I also do a LITTLE bit of puppyshipping. Mobiumshipping and flareshipping are also acceptable to me, and if you have blindshipping, I'll read those too. (Death Note): Beyond Birthday and Near, Beyond Birthday and A, L and Light (or Light and L), Matt and Mello (and, yes, in THAT ORDER!), and maybe even a little Beyond Birthday and Matt. (Naruto): NaruSasu all the way! I won't read any other pairing for that fandom (excluding SaiNaru and ItaNaru, because I do read for those sometimes, and am hoping to beta one in the future). I will also read over Dragon Knights, and Pet Shop of Horror. And, if you need it, I'll do Vocaloid fanfictions as well. And, sometimes, I'll even read through a Chibi Vampire story. That is the ONLY time I will do hetero, mainly.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't do wish-shipping, kleptoshipping, heartshipping, peachshipping, etc. I do NOT do Prideshipping! I'll do it if it's one of those "Yami cheats on Yugi with Seto" type stories, but other than those (and a few other things), I WILL NOT DO PRIDESHIPPING! As for my Death Note readings...again, you all know what I like and don't like.
