Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am willing to help out anyone who wants assistance. Whether you are new to fanfiction and want some help getting started or a veteran who just wants a new perspective I will be there to help you with your story. I love to point out the things that are done correctly but I am brutally honest when it comes to criticism. That doesn't necessarily mean I will be cruel in my feedback, it just means that you will get the truth without it being sugarcoated. If you want my assistance that needs to be acknowledged and accepted. My goal will be to help you fix what's wrong and not to make you feel better about inferior work.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a very good eye for common mistakes that many novice writers make. Things like the difference between different forms of "there," properly spelled but misused words, and basically anything else that spell check may miss. When I'm reading my biggest interest is in the story itself and how it flows. Holes in the plot and events that just don't make sense always stick out to me. I can also pick up on subtle hints pretty well, so if you're wondering how effective your foreshadowing or similar element is, I can provide assistance.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a short attention span, and that can hurt sometimes. In all likelihood I will get through your story in one sitting no matter how long it is, but if it is redundant or gets off to an extremely slow start I will probably just provide some negative feedback until it is fixed. While I like to bring environments and conversations to life, I don't always provide detail on everything possible nor do I think anybody should. I prefer things straight to the point and while this is a personal preference it could also be considered a flaw.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like stories with a faster pace but anything that is well-written or on its way is fine by me. As long as the story is actually moving I don't need an action scene to keep my attention, I just can't have you beating a dead horse.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
A lot of the slapstick comedy that floats around this site is complete trash and I want nothing to do with it. I can handle writing with a script format, but if it's just two characters lighting each other on fire, farting, or shouting for the sake of "humor" please spare me. With that said, I don't like completely random pairing stories either. If you're going to put Bowser and Peach together or people who hated each other in their respective story together there better be a good back story behind it. I don't want to read about a random couple's love just because it would be cute. Make me see why it would be cute.
