|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
This is my first time as a beta-reader, but I ask you to please read the whole the description before you decide that I am not for you. If I'm not 'the one', however, that's fine by me. I love manga! Enough said. Anyone who wants my service will probably get a response fairly quickly, unless I'm swamped. I don't care how long it takes you to write something, but randomly dropping your fics because you can't think of anything is annoying. (It's okay, I'm not much better though). If you're going to give me a hissy fit when I give you advice you might not like, then don't ask for me. I'm not here to flatter, unless the story is really, really good.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Plot ideas, description, where characters should have conversation, spelling, interaction between characters, story flow, just tell me what you want and if its not one of the two below I can probably help you. Heck, you don't even need to tell me specifics. You want anything I spot, you got it.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Staying in character can be a bit of a problem for me. Grammar isn't exactly my best spot either... Oh, also, I will probably also hound you for putting an 's' where I believe a 'z' should be, like realizing. That stuff just bugs me! Z HAS NO LOVE! Sorry.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Tsubasa Chronicle, Bleach, Naruto, One Piece, Otomen, Hana Kimi, Kuroshitsuji, Fruits Basket, Shaman King, xxxHolic, Yakitake Japan, Wild Ones, Cactus' Secret, Me and My Brothers, Mixed Vegetables, dang the list goes on and on. Anything I've read, I'm game to do. Preferably manga though... I like stories that unfold slowly, too much in one little thing isn't good.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm pretty much fine with anything except for pointless fiction that rambles. Oh, wait, and that gushy gushy romance that practically oozes love but in an uncomfortable way. Cute romance is fine, along with a few dramatic moments or love, but no big little bundles of sickly sweet stuff please. And if you give me a bundle of smut... that's a no for me.
