Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I've always been proficient at english - born and bred in the land of the free /s - and for the longest time, English and writing has always been my strongest point. Im open to all types of genres, my expectations are simple:br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

1) give me something YOU think the readers will be interested in. I'm the reader, you're the writer, 'SELL' me the story br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

2) When I read your story, I do expect you be at least proficient to some degree of writing. That means that I know there to be a few grammar and punctuation and spelling mistakes here and there so I won't judge you because we're human and we make mistakes. BUT IF YOU DECIDE TO WRITE LIKE THAT AUTHOR OF "MY IMMORTALS" I SWEAR I WILL FIND YOU AND MURDER YOU. br /br /br /

3) I don't want three paragraphs of details that we the reader already know about (-_-")br /br /br /

4) Please, PLEASE make sure your characters - that includes OCs - stay IN CHARACTER. I'll be on the look out to make sure your characters keep to their given personalities and characteristics - crack and slash fics are exceptions - (i.e. i don't want to see a f*cking dancing and skipping and ooh-lala-i'm-in-wonderland Zoro)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I consider myself to have an eye for detail. It can be from describing a scenario, to portraying a back-breaking fight scene, to detailing the glorious wonders of water dripping off a man's chest (ಠ_ಠ). I'm also quite good at initiating smooth transitions and making sure there are no loose ends and unanswered questions in the story - that tends to annoy readers quite a bit. I'm also considered to be a -for lack of better wording- 'wall of ideas'. People 'bounce' ideas off of me (haha). I also enjoy helping writers with their OCs in keeping their characters well rounded and balanced between the line of fantasy and reality.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I like to think that I'm good with playful bantering between two people but...honestly...I just simply SUCK at it. it's like I don't have a funny bone in my body. I have a more sarcastic and dry/dark humor when it comes to writing controlled banters
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I don't really have a preference to what type of stories I would rather beta...maybe a story I'm familiar with?
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm a bit uncomfortable with writing yaoi. I've read one or two stories and the only one I could never hate was a story from a writer who paired Gaara and Lee. Really his/her writing was just so perfect that I couldn't find fault with the pairing.
