Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm not sure I'd be labeled so much "Beta-Reader" as "Reviewer." I traditionally write game reviews but love to review other mediums now and again. I can't promise I will specifically read and review what you throw at me, but you never know until you ask. If I find it worthwhile, I'll obviously give it a read.br /br /

I view fanfiction as a way for us, the fans, to do what many writers actually do for the franchises we love: write their own episodes, etc., based on something someone else created. Most TV shows and video games, at least, change writers all of the time. The key to holding everything together is keeping everything consistent. Our goal as fanfiction writers should be to strive to maintain the characters and canon that we're basing our works off of but explore new territory with them. Either that or take the established ideas and do something original and creative.br / br /

I admit, I never finished half of the grandiose ideas I came up with, so I had to start writing shorter stories so I could actually finish them. The same rule should apply to whatever you submit to me.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- Consistency/Canonicity/In-Character - If you're writing a fic that is supposed to take place in an established world, I want to believe it.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
- Spelling/Grammar - Not because I can't do it, as I'm more than capable, but because everyone ELSE does it and I don't have the time or patience. =P
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Avatar: The Last Airbender, Teen Titans...I dunno, if you take a look at my own fics you'll see what franchises I've written ABOUT, so I'd be certainly open to anything from those categories. Oh, and I very very much prefer shorter works. Not necessarily only one-shots, but overall, shorter stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Mary Sues, sexual stuff that doesn't bear any significance to the plot, pairings for the sake of pairings, pairings that don't even make SENSE given the established canon...Original characters don't bother me too much, but I like seeing what people can do with what already exists. That's kind of what fanfiction is about, isn't it?br /

Oh, and another thing: I hate Organization XIII. They screwed up everything about the KH storyline - it was simple and clean (see what I did there?) before they came around. They're Nobodies, they have no hearts and thus cannot feel, they sure as hell can't love anyone. Especially each other, or you, Mary Sue. That and I utterly hate Axel's catchphrase.
