Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Never beta-read before, but I've been reading fanfiction for upwards of 8 years (hint: not in middle school). I don't pull a lot of punches, but I'm more than happy to help others out. I would prefer smaller / shorter stories because my schedule is pretty uncooperative when school's in session. If your planning something larger or sending during a term don't expect a reply before the weekend (Friday/Saturday). Otherwise, I prefer romance (or stories that have at least a romantic twist), tend towards traditional pairings (lots of ShikaTem, KisukYoru, and ZechsNoin), and have a lot of experience with Gundam Wing, Naruto, and Bleach.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I don't have a ton of pure fanfiction writing experience, but I'm an avid reader and more than proficient grammatically (is that a word?). I can (and will) critique just about everything from writing style to plot development, but don't particularly care how OoC things are so long as the story reads well. When editing, I tend to mark and comment; I have no intention of writing your story for you, and will seldom suggest actual word choice / structure.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Kryptonite and a desire for things to not stay PG?
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
As stated above, I read Gundam Wing, Naruto, and Bleach (with special emphasis on Zechs/Noin, Shika/Tem, and Kisu/Yoru). I'm generally down for any of the more traditional pairings or pairings for individuals without a more canonical match. I also enjoy 'M' ratings, so no worries about a story being too graphic.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not read: Yaoi (just don't enjoy), Yuri (just don't enjoy), Harem (I like monogamy), anything featuring rape (really not cool), anything that looks like a middle school student texted it to their friend (i.e. lack of capitalization, 'u', '8', or any other bastardization of the English language), or anything that messes up one of the couples given above (:P Shame on you all!)
