Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Please don't be put off by my own stories. There are many mistakes, and I do know that. However, I cannot stand to sit through and proof read what I have already written. Many times, I simply do not have time, when typing up one of my stories, to actually sit down and edit. Perhaps moreso is the fact that I am lazy, and just don't want to reread for the sake of improvement. Fanfictions aren't things into which I put much time. They are simply for pleasure. br /

br /

Now, if someone would like me to Beta a story of his or hers, I would gladly do so. I would much rather sit down and edit someone's writing than I would my own. I will not ever criticize anyone for anything (except perhaps plagiarism.) I will give suggestions and feedback, but never anything to be taken offensively. I know how it feels to be criticized, and I don't like it. Constructive criticism is nothing more than productive feedback, and thus, permissible. However I refuse to be flat out mean, so don't ever worry.br /

br /

** Note: I do not always check ff.net or my email. If I do not get back to you right away, do not be offended. I simply haven't been online.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I don't claim to be an expert, but I feel that I'm proficient in grammar and spelling. I took three years of Latin, which is really nothing more than a grammar course, as no one actually speaks the language. br /

br /

I like to think that I'm relatively creative-I've been told that I am, at the very least. If you're looking for help, or even someone of which to simply bounce ideas off, I don't mind lending a hand.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have this terrible habit of speed-reading. I take in so much information at once, but I don't actually catch mistakes. This is probably something terrible to say when offering Beta help, but I'm being honest. I can't promise that I can catch and correct everything, but I can do my best.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Though I am offering my help on Fanfiction.net, I definitely don't mind reading original works. I have my own, and I know how much I appreciate constructive feedback.br /

br /

As for particular genre, I don't really mind reading whatever is thrown my way. As a warning though, romances tend to bore me! That does not mean I won't take them, just know that I may be a bit more critical than in other genres. br /

br /

Fanfiction types that I will take- anything that I have written my own on, and more! I'll read Sookie Stackhouse, Harry Potter, Artemis Fowl, Tithe/Ironside/Valiant, Abhorsen, Hunger Games, Holes, Red Eye, Hana Yori Dango, Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z/GT, Air Gear, Gundam Wing, Tsubasa Chronicles, Supernatural, CSI... Try me though; who knows? If I know it, I'll take it, but I can't read something that I have no history with!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As I said, I don't care much for Romances, so, unless it has a good concept, I have less of a chance of taking it. By this, I mean a full romance drama. I won't toss a story just because it has a little bit of romance, as long as it is paired with action or adventure.br /

br /

Any story involving a Mary-Sue will be thrown away. I absolutely cannot stand the characters whom are perfect and can do no wrong. No one is perfect. No one can do anything and/or know everything. Not all things are fixable. Honestly, the more despicable the character, the more I like them.br /

br /

I won't take anything that is Disney, except for Kingdom Hearts. Alice in Wonderland is technically a book, so that is acceptable. I refuse to take any Naruto or even InuYasha. Don't get me wrong, I like InuYasha, I simply think it's been so over done. Also, do not approach me with Twilight. I will try my best not to be mean, but I have very, VERY unkind things to say about the Twilight series.
