β : FoxPupil is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a member since 2011 (though published my current stories in 2016) and during that time read a lot of fanfiction in English and thanks to that I encountered with divers kind of errors. Whenever I felt like that I met with enough ridiculous mistakes, I took a look at the author's profile to see what nationaly they are from. It took me this long to finally make up my mind and help others instead of stopping to read strories that had too much fault for my likng and figuratively banging my head into the table because of annoyance.
Therefore I am new to this industry, however, I solemnly promise that I shall endeavor to be of help and I also will be honest with you though I will try to be polite and constuctive if it is negative criticism. Also, I will attempt to be as fast as possible though it will also depend on the length of your writings.
If your story features horses or Japanese culture or language then I know quite a bit or, in case I happen that I actually do not, I should be able to appoint you to a somewhat helpful website.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
English grammar, especially spelling errors and the usage of prepositions. I find the usage of synonyms important too, after all it makes one's writing more colorful.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I read a lot in English, but the problem is that I usually read in American English while I was taught British English thus I may mix the two with each other though I am aware it is the British English that likes to add 'u's to certain words (e.g.: honour, endeavour, colour, etc.).
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
See 'Beta Preferences'.
Concerning the genres those are the most preferred ones, I would not mind betaing stories of other genres as long as they are related to the 'universes' I listed below. Of course there are several other stuff I watched or read but these are the ones that I can help you with the best.
Although I did not list any crossover, I will be alright with those too, as long as it is related to the listed categories.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Explicit Sexual Content, Extreme BDSM, Shounen Ai, Shoujou Ai, Yaoi/Slash, Yuri/FemSlash. I wont be a hypocrite and say I do not even read Shounen Ai, because I did and that particular story was well-written though there were no warnings, but if I can help it, I do not read it. Of course, if you have story and it has a homosexual character, I will not be bothered by that, only if you add an explicit homosexual sex scene.
