Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Thank you for taking time to look at my profile. If you are in need of a beta-reader, please check the sections below to make sure I am what you're looking for. Am I what you need? I'm happy to help you!I'm a person who enjoys to read, edit and revise work so long as you're willing to take any range of criticism from me and work with it. You may also fight against the criticism with an argument over your own and we can debate it out if you feel that I've said something unfair as whatever I might say to you is not absolute. Just please give me a summary of your story so I know what I'm looking at before I start reading. Also, when I finish editing/revising, I prefer that we go over it just once (and for you to save a copy of your original work) before the chapter is (re)published on the site.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a person who cares mainly about storyline and character development. I can also take care of dialogue, actions and structure (including word and sentence). Please note that I'm not going to change your story or character development. Rather, I am here to offer you advice. Dialogue and actions are included to that when referring to being OOC. (If not, I will change it.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I honestly don't pay attention to the grammar and spelling as much as I do to the actual content so if I don't catch something, that's totally my fault. It's not that I can't pick up spelling and grammar errors, but just know that I'm not totally perfect when it comes to that. Also, anything like action scenes (typical full on engaging battle royale) and sometimes description are not my best.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The main thing I ask for is to be able to interpret your writing. I don't expect the story to be totally grammatically correct or anything like that (as I'm here to take care of those mistakes to my ability). As for other things such as genres, AUs and what-not, I can do mostly anything- yaoi, yuri, hentai, horror, poetry. The ones I can't do are listed in the next section.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
English is unfortunately my first and only language (my Italian is very basic). I'd really not prefer a story that has the spelling and grammar of a four-year old. There are no toddlers in my family so I can't understand that language anymore. Also, please don't send me something that you expect me to rewrite for you entirely. The imaginative power is in the author's hands, not mine. I just happen to be an assistant for you. What's nearly even more important than understanding the work is how IC the characters are. Never ever send me a story meant to be OOC. And by "meant", I mean having a canon character purposely taking on the form of an OC. Yes, we all have different takes on what some characters are supposed to be like, but if you take an obvious "tsundere" (hard exterior, emotional interior) and make them into a "yandere" (cute and secretly psycho), there is something completely wrong there. In terms of types of stories, I cannot and refuse to do: (1) Anything to do with furries, bestiality or animals in general (unless it is about characters taking care of an animal not turned into by another)(2) Sexual exposure of characters under the age of 15 and characters over the age of 50 (flashbacks are a different story, but they cannot fall under 15 and over 50)(3)No song-fics. I just can't stand those. And by song fic, I mean a work that follows directly and quotes a song (titles don't count). I don't mind if you paste some lyrics here and there so long as it's not for your entire story.
