|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I would like to begin as a beta-reader. It is a way to fill up my free time, but also a commitment that I am willing to make, if given the chance. I'm not really sure about a style or beta-reading. I will edit some Musical fanfictions, Twilight, Vladimir Tod, and many, many movies (unless the movie was R-rated, which means I haven't seen it). The brilliant authors that wish for me to beta-read their stories must not have - excuse the word - perverted stories. Stories purely about, well, hot sweaty sex are absolutely not what I want to beta-read. If beta-reading is supposed to help improve a story, I believe that those types of stories are too far gone to be improved. I will beta-read stories with cursing or serious topics, such as drugs, diseases, and such (see Renf fanfiction), but please, nothing that makes someone feel dirty just by reading it. And lastly, I ask that anyone who wishes for me to beta-read their stories is patient with me, though I try my very hardest.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am usually very good at catching spelling mistakes and grammatical errors. I would try my hardest to fix and find everything possible, because everytime I see or hear something that isn't grammatically correct, I cringe.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
The types of stories that I can look over are limited, especially when helping with ideas, because there are many movies that I haven't seen, books that I haven't read, and so on.br /br /
br /br /
My beta-reading will not be up to par if I'm not sure what I'm reading about. Also, I try my hardest, but I can not always edit a story the day I read it. I sometimes have a busy schedule, and it may sometimes take a while to look over a fanfic.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer fanfictions of musicals (Rent, Wicked, Phantom, 25th Annual, Legally Blonde), Twilight, Vladimir Tod, and many movies (unless it's R-rated, because I probably haven't seen it). Anything else, just ask. Or just send the story, and I will get back to you.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anime/Manga. I love it, but I don't know enough about it. Games, as well. I play 3 games (Endless Ocean 1&2, DDR, and Sing It) so I would have no idea what I was reading about. Some movies I can beta, but I think it's just this: I will beta-read pretty much anything that I have seen or read.
