Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm pretty easy-going. Pretty much anyone can get me to beta-read, and I'm not really picky about how long or short a story is in the realm of understandable.

I'll only edit the grammar in your story if it's incorrect and I won't touch anything else. If there's something that I think is a bit 'off' or if there's something that can be improved, I'll suggest it and not go edit the story myself straight away because 1) it's your story therefore I feel I have no right to change its contents (i.e. the story/plot) and 2) my suggestions are suggestions, so they're not compulsory to follow. I'm a person who will try and help, not someone who says 'you must do this' or 'you must do that'.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My best area would be grammar. I'm good at punctuating sentences correctly and I've got a pretty wide vocabulary.

I'm pretty decent at creating atmospheres and moods to suit different situations in a fic.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have not-so-good spelling. Also, I'm Australian, so some words that are spelt correctly American-wise might seem incorrectly spelt to me (usually though, I double-check with American spelling).br /

br /

With story context, I'm not very organised. I write my stories on the spot, so I never plan. Also, I tend to make things a bit hard to understand.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'd prefer it if there's definitely an adventure going on. I also really like action and I guess those two tie in together. I quite like angst stories, but I mainly read them as /

br /

I'd also prefer it if the story is something I'm familiar with (i.e. a series I know); best ones would be Earthbound (have finished all three games), the Eldran series (if there are any; 1st & 3rd only), Professor Layton (played up to Miracle Mask and watched movie), Super Smash Bros., I.N.K. Invisible Network of Kids (watched all) and Tales of Symphonia (1st & 2nd). But look, if it's a series I don't know, I will still beta it, but I won't be able to give you any suggestions on the actual characters /

br /

Also, I honestly don't mind reading a chapter about 10'000 words long. If you're one to write really detailed and descriptive chapters, well then go for it. I'm not going to turn down a request to beta just because it's too long. However, if it's too short (unless it's the prologue), then yes, maybe I won't read it (my definition of short is 500).br /

br /

If you're using OC's, well sure go ahead. OCs are fine for me too.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories with romance. Small amounts of it, I will probably fight through. Big amounts of it, I instantly get thrown off. I don't like romance, sorry, especially yaoi & /

br /

Also, I will not read nudity descriptions. If you do happen to have one in your chapter, expect me to completely skip over it, or just tell you straight away that you've got the wrong beta.
