Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to give detail and depth to stories - whether for the 'scenery' or for the characters. I'm a big fan of science (but no worries if it doesn't play a role in your story XD)
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, grammar, syntax, characterisation and character development, plot development, help with tenses. I am happy to edit/help to include stories which need/want scientific detail (to a reasonable degree). (I am aware my stories contain some mistakes, despite my attempts to catch as many as I can, this is probably due to having no beta of my own, XD)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Hmm...probably stories which work in a more over-view type sense - such as those which would sacrifice detail for a more broad view, I'm likely to have trouble with - I tend to get carried away with details. I can manage if detail is sacrificed in a scene for the sake drama - but not through the story as a whole. I don't deal well with immature characters who are supposed to be adults (I'm happy to help make a character more mature) but otherwise they tend to severely annoy me!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, action, drama, humour - in fact almost anything (with the exception of what's written below XD)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Excessively angsty stories (a little angst or angst which is well-resolved by end of story is okay). No stories revolving around (young, pre-teen) children. No pregnancy. No rape/non-con/excessive abuse etc. No immature adult characters, please! (I am happy to accept if character is to develop throughout the story, but NOT if they're children in the body of an adult and will remain that way!) Also don't like extreme AU stories - for example, a Naruto fiction *not* set in the Kishimoto universe, if set in "today's world" e.g. a character attends 'school' or university instead of ninja academy and/or doesn't possess ninja powers, then I'm not happy to beta. "Minor" AU fics, such as a character who'd previously died, didn't in your fic, that's okay, as is making two character not meet in the way they do in the manga/anime is okay too. E.g. Kakashi and Sakura never meet as teacher/student is not prob, respective ages - minor changes such as that are all okay (any confusion, please PM me!) Also: NO crossovers! No way, no how!
