|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. I'm Meta-Akira, but feel free to just call me Akira. I'm an eighteen-year-old female college student in the United States whose schedule rapidly flies from "bored outta my skull" to "not enough hours in the day". But I always try to focus on my writing. For any of you out there, I'm a Pokemon writer. So far, I have not written stories for FanFiction that is not of the Pokemon genre. In specific, I work best with the game material, though anime is perfectly okay as well. However, I will gladly Beta for stories working with the Inheritance Cycle, Wall-E, Super Smash Bros., and Toy Story. I will do my best on your story if I choose to Beta. Thanks for considering me!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a bit of a Grammar Nazi, and I have a very wide vocabulary. I try to look over my stories to eliminate overly repeated words. I'm also good at keeping track or words that sound like others being used in the wrong context (i.e. accept and except, your and you're, wonder and wander, etc.). I excel at punctuation and helping to make sentences flow. I'm also good at making scenes sound more descriptive.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Occasionally I will trip up and make a misspelling, but it is never anything completely ridiculous. I also may get a bit wordy for people who aren't as avid readers as I am. I also am not really good at love at first sight sort of stories. When it comes to Pokemon Special manga, I've only begun it recently, so you might want to get someone who knows the storylines better.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As I said before, I prefer working on Pokemon game/anime stories. I'm good for Poke, Contest, Ikari, SoulSilver, Vatonage, Ferriswheel, Fatherly, Colosseum, and Fortune. Others are posted on my FanFiction Profile. When it comes to Inheritance, I prefer Eragon/Arya and Nasuada/Murtagh. Other ships (as long as they're not slash) are fair game. I may or may not work with OC stories.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
NO: Lemons/Limes, Slash, Vampire versions of stories, Excessive Sexual Themes, Pokemon ships including: Pearl, Advanced, Ego, Gym, Orange, HeartSoul, Chess, and Checkmate. And please make sure your story is at least comprehensible.
