Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My proofreading style is critical but friendly. I'm the friend that will tell you the truth and diligently help you fix the problem before anyone else would have a chance to point out your flaw. Everyone needs one of those. I am well-educated in English grammar and literature, and can analyze grammar usage very well, though it is limited to the English language. I've always had an eye for misspellings, improper grammar usage, and punctuation errors. I would only give advice about the direction the work is going if it is requested of me. Please just let me know if the dialogue for a character is intentionally poor or broken English. I can even put in a little extra time to research or translate other common languages. I'm young, but I have almost completed my college education. I have excelled at writing, grammar and literature studies throughout my life. I enjoy reading other viewpoints, and I hope to be able to help correct innocent mistakes and help guide writers. I enjoy reading in general, and also write a little bit on the side myself to share with others. I have a good eye, and can Beta thoroughly for your benefit.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in certain areas of Anime. I'm not a fan of some Anime series, and am limited to those which has made it to television or DVD. I'm strong in correcting continuity errors for Bleach, Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, Inuyasha, Trigun, Blood +, and am very familiar with the personalities of characters from those listed, as well as those from Naruto, Hellsing, Ghost in the Shell, Kekkaishi, and others. My character strengths lie in Bleach, Fullmetal Alchemist, Naruto and Inuyasha.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My weaknesses lie in continuity errors for Anime I might not be familiar with, though I can correct grammar mistakes very well.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm very good with random stories and out of character randomness, continuations that might've been lost in the Anime series, and especially bit spinoffs based on actual scenes from the Anime. I do enjoy seeing how others would add to or recreate a scene.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a fan of some Anime, but I don't need to like it to Beta someone's work and judge it fairly or correct mistakes. A good body of work is still good, no matter if it is or isn't someone else's cup of tea. Hard work and genuine creativity should always be appreciated and encouraged. I'm here to help in a small part and reinforce your creative vision.
