|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Honestly, I prefer a very well written style of writing. Therefore, I don't normally stick with stories that are lacking in grammar skills or description when it comes to the writing itself. As a result, I will more than likely not accept beta requests of a story that is short or one that has grammatically mistakes or terrible sentence structure. I am more than willing to receive requests for whatever story you send me, but I cannot promise that I will accept your story if it is short or uses "texting lingo".
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in Fiction, obviously. So if you present me with a story that has Historical background or something of the like then it's more than like I'll either be uninterested, or not be able to beta the story efficiently because I will more than likely skim. My interests lie in Anime, Cartoons, and TV Shows, those are the two fields in which I peruse stories, and of those two fields I'm very selective in the stories I read. Within TV Shows I tend to stick with Once Upon a Time and Rizzoli and Isles, although occasionally I will read the occasional Warehouse 13 fic. As for Anime, the stories I am more often than naught reading is Fairy Tail, Shugo Chara, Ghost Hunt, and MGLN; on occasion, however, I can be interested in a good fic from Fruits Basket, Digimon, OHSHC, Detective Conan, MKR, K-on, or Lucky Star. Of the Cartoon category, my interests usually lie in X-Men: Evolution fics or W.I.T.C.H fics, and I have yet to view fics of any other shows within Cartoon. That does not mean, however, that I am unwilling to attempt stories outside of those areas, those are just the stories that I am accustomed to. Super been into Harry Potter fanfiction again though!
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My definite weakness would have to be History. If you're fic has anything to do with History, I'm more than likely not going to be of much use, as I find myself having a hard time with stories of that variety. If your fic is a Yaoi, I will not be much help either, as I tend to dislike reading that sort of story, mostly because I don't agree with the pairings. I just have a hard time grasping the Yaoi genre, and have never been a very big fan of shows and manga of that persuasion.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I would definitely prefer some very good Ghost Hunt stories at the moment, as that's been my main focus lately. Rizzoli and Isles would be greatly appreciated, as well. I have more or less already listed what I would prefer, though, when I discussed my strengths as that is when I listed what I liked to read.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Most of what I would prefer not to read is already listed in my weaknesses, as those are more often the type of stories that I would not appreciate reading. I would, however, like to point out that if you send me a beta request on a show of some sort that I have not seen, or for whatever reason a book I have not read, it is highly likely that I will turn away the request. Not because I wouldn't be willing to beta your story, merely for the fact of I would not be a highly recommended person to beta for you, as I would not understand certain things from the show or book, and it's more likely than not that I would have no interest in the show or book was that the fanfiction was based off of.
