|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
First off, I love fanfiction and I'm a really nice person! However, because I love fanfiction and want you as a person to be the best that you can be, that means I read fanfiction with a critical eye.
Maybe you want some help with editing, or maybe you just want someone to read your fic and give you their honest opinion on your work. Either way, I am the betareader for you!
I enjoy things that are spelled correctly, therefore, if you spell something incorrectly, I will spell it correctly for you and we will all be happy.
I can help out to a certain extent with the plot/substance of your fic if you so desire and I will do my best to offer any advice that can help you improve your writing.
I myself am still a struggling fanfiction author and I know how it feels to look at your work and wish someone else would read it for you just to offer up some advice, and my door is always open to anyone who wants help with editing their work!
I am also willing to help those who speak English as a second language, meaning if you just started writing in English and aren't sure how some things should be phrased, I can help!
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Well, I don't mean to brag, but I'm pretty darn good at everything.
For example, I'm bilingual. I speak English... and sarcasm.
Seriously though, I can help with content(to a certain extent), spelling, the feeling of the story, the type of narration the story needs, sentence flow and composition, and grammar(to a certain extent).
All these glorious skills are available upon request, hold the sarcasm.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Grammar is something I'm fairly good at in general(with question marks and commas and all that), but if you're going to ask me if that semi-colon you put in the middle of that sentence is correct, then I have no idea. Obviously, if you put a colon right before a period I can use deductive reasoning to figure out it does not go there, but... you know...
If you intentionally grammar the wrong way, such as with this sentence, then by all means, do yo thang. Most of the time I will be able to figure out if any spelling/grammar mistakes are intentional.
There are some fandoms that I do not know. However, if you come to me and ask me to check and make sure that your story line fits or that your characters are acting like they are supposed to act, I will make it my sole mission in life to make sure your characters are as in-character as possible for the story to take place.
Clearly, I'm not perfect. I still have a lot to learn. I'm here to be a critical eye and a helping hand for you if you need it.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I love slash. The more slash, the better. I will take any pairing and edit them to the best of my abilities. I will admit that there are some pairings that I don't find preferable, but I'm willing to put personal biases aside for the sake of the writer. You're welcome.
I love yaoi.
I love yuri.
I love hetero.
Maybe in your story all they do is hold hands?
Cool. I'd like to read it.
Maybe you have a story that gets a bit more... steamy...?
Send it my way.
I won't turn away anything without looking at it first.
I love anime and manga and superheroes and movies and... yeah.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Gory things... Like, things that will make me have nightmares and prevent me from taking a shower while alone in my home. I personally have never come across anything like that on fanfiction, but if you're, like, into vore or something, that's all you, man.
Other than that, I'll read it if you send it. (:
As you can tell, I'm a more sarcastic person. Don't let that scare you away or make you think that I'm not qualified to help you out. I'm humorous and fun-loving, but I will rip your work apart to the very core in a way that causes your soul to ache.
Of course, I mean that in the nicest way possible.
