Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi~! I'm SolarumNyx, but you can call me Nyx! (Or Sol, if you prefer.) I'm a girl who loves writing, and I'm more than up for beta-ing any fics you might have! I have a sort of instinctive feel for grammar and spelling, so that's really not a problem for me. I try to fulfill your expectations as much as possible, but I'm generally a very serious, boisterous person who doesn't mind writing about controversial topics (I love them) and defending my work. Looking forward to meeting with you! ^^
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are spelling, grammar, and introspective pieces. I am good at, and enjoy very much, picking apart each of the pieces that make a character who they are, and what they stand for. I love symbolism, and usually insert a lot of it in my fan-fictions. Spelling and grammar come naturally to me, and I can speak (not write, though.) 3 languages fluently. (English, Cantonese, Mandarin, aru!)I'd like to think I am very patient, and I don't care how controversial your fic is. (incest, yaoi, yuri, shota, don't care - love is love, whoever it is.)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
One of my weaknesses is that I love the motto "short, sweet, and simple." I enjoy the little fics that leave you smiling, and so I usually don't stray over 3,000 words in my fics, and overall, I prefer drabbles over long, drawn out fics. However, if you have a multi-chapter story, I'd love to beta it! Another one of my weaknesses is sometimes, I just type whatever pops into my head, which leads to sentences with many commas and dashes - which isn't necessarily always bad. Also, I am very indecisive at times, so I'm not for those of you who are impatient.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would love to beta any psychological or introspective piece that really pries into the very essence of that character. Also enjoyed are romance fics that are presented with a fresh, original format. I really love those fics that push the envelope, presenting the reader with a format that's not necessarily normal, per se, but still leaves the reader thinking about it afterward, and leaving the quotes floating through their mind - if you know what I mean. My favorite genre, however, is well thought out angst. I eat it for breakfast. *slurp*
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I will not beta any fic with mature romance scenes. I don't enjoy reading them, and I'd rather not muddle through it. Also, I'd rather not read a fic that you don't particularly care for - I like seeing the effort and creativity that forms a successful fic. Other than that, there's not much that I won't beta, so don't hesitate to ask! Any pairing is accepted, even if I'm not a fan, so just ask! ^_^
