Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Active for 2018.

I expect you to provide the following in your PM:

- Title:

- Pairings:

- Warning related to the rating:

- Number of chapters:

- Average total of words once the story will be complete:

- Short summary you'll post for it on FFnet:

- Short plot outline:

If the project interests me, then I'll do the first 1000 words or first chapter (whichever ends first). But no more.

Once this is over, if I want to do more, I'll ask you for the next 3000 words or for the second chapter (whichever comes shorter).

BUT if I don't ask for anything further after I return you the first amount of text that means I'm not up to continue, and so that's your clue to start considering another beta for the rest.

PS: I don't expect you to mention me as a betareader in the final text or do anything akin. Even through I appreciate it as much as the next person. Also, I love polite debate and speculating. I easily rant thousand words PMs that way.

- * -

Je m'engage seulement pour les premiers 2000 mots ou le premier chapitre s'il fait a peu près cette longueur.

Une fois que je vous ai rendue cette partie éditée, si ca m'interesse de continuer, je vous demanderai de me donner la suite. Si je ne demande rien, alors vous voudrez peut-être chercher un autre beta pour la suite.

PS: Etant donné que je fais pas souvent tout le texte, je ne m'atends pas à être mentionnée pour ma participation dans le texte final. Même si j'apprécirai toujours beaucoup le geste.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
- Characterization, Logic, Romance, Spelling, Vocabulary, Syntax.

- Overall harmony between the first chapter to the last.

Mes points-forts:

- L'orthographe, la grammaire et les figures de style.

- L'équilibre et sonorités de la syntaxe en français, la crédibilité des personnages.

- La logique du scénario, la poésie de son rythme,

- L'harmonie significative entre son introduction et sa conclusion.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
- English is not my native language, so I'd advise to read my latest English story first to decide if my reading/writing abilities can satisfy.

- I don't have a clue about how normal young children are supposed to speak.

- I can't honestly criticize erotica whereas I think it's good or not. It's silly, but I'm too shy for that.

- I learnt English on my own since I was a child so I have a weird grammar and can't tell whether an idiom would be more appropriate than another given the mood of a situation.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
- Romance conscientiously crafted and powered on complicity, pride or competition;

- Bromance, all kinds of original mostly platonic loves;

- Philosophy, psychology, social traits;

- Character exploration and development.

See my profile for a better idea if you want.

J'aime particulierement :

- La SF, la fantasy, et tous ses dérivés sauf l'horreur qui ne m'interresse pas.

- Je trouve les histoires contemporaines ou surnaturelles sans aucun autre élément infiniment ennuyeuses... a moin qu'elles comportent des personnages vraiment hors du commun, ou que le scénario sorte ET reste completement hors de la plupart des sentiers battus.

- Les interets romantics ayant des moments de Woobies (ahem, Yato de Norogami, ahem - voir TV Troops) sont mes muses et capable de me garder concentrée pendant de long textes.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not motivated and will probably turn down stories that have:

- Yaoi, yuri, loli, or pointedly libertinous endavor. Respectuous ero is okay as long as it's not explicit.

- Undeads, vampires and other half-dead "cuties". (The only male shifters I'm not fed up by now are selkies, licorns, pegasi, werebunnies and weredoves. The tall dark and virile sterotype is the strongest turn-off for me.

- Asian words or ninjas in occidental settling

- Cheesy shojo, virile seinen

- Self-inserts, except in parodies for auto-derision,

- Crack, esoteric, profanity,

- Militant refferings to real life religions, atheism or politics.

- Story that would take an entire to describe a characters' everyday's life.

- * -

Je ne suis pas motivée pour :

- Les romances surfaites

- Les scénarios classiques qui n'innovent en rien

- Les shojo s'ils sont trop mielleux ou les shonen trop viriles

- Les mélange des culture japonaise et occidentale sans explication (du genre à implémenter des ninjas dans une epic fantasy comme si ça allait de soi).

- Les choses ésothériques, profanes, le militantisme ou encore le prosélitisme. Pas de PWP non plus. Pour le shonen ai ou shojo ai, je suis okay tant que personne ne commence à se comporter de façon OoC juste pour faire romantique; mais au premier ou à la première qui roule un patin à l'autre, je dis tchao.
