Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, everyone. When I beta read, I am paying close attention to your spelling, the flow of your sentences, your grammar, and your punctuation. I also pay attention to the pace and development of your story. If you are trying to keep your characters in character, I will also look for your characterization. Your word choice is also important. I can also help with dialogue, if anyone needs it. I am serious about your story, but I'm really not as stuck-up as I may sound. I'll be nice, and I can actually joke around when needed...if it is. I am looking for people writing fanfictions for the first time, or aren't great in spelling/grammar/punctuation. I will help anyone, though.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at descriptive things. Adjectives are my favorite types of words, so I have a bunch of them in my vocabulary. I also typically excel at punctuation and grammar. I am good at crime and mystery stories, comedy stories, and stories that take place in the future. I also know a lot about death and suicide. I'm sure I could beta other stories not in that category, but those are just my specialties. I also get the job done quickly.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I don't really hold much knowledge about other countries other than America or Japan, so I won't know the laws or anything about any other countries. If I do try to beta one of those stories, it might take a while for me to beta them because I will have to do research.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Death Note stories. I have a colossal amount of knowledge of both the anime and manga, and the characters within them. I specialize with L and Light as characters AND as a couple. I also can beta many other anime fanfictions such as Mirai Nikki/Future Diary, Elfen Lied, Ao No/Blue Exorcist, Deadman Wonderland, Girls Bravo, Clannad...I've watched about fifty. I would enjoy to stay in anime or manga, but I can go to other categories if needed, as long as I know them.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories based of works that I don't know. An example is an anime I don't know. I mean, I can go and watch it if you REALLY want me to, but that would be a hassle and waste your time. I also don't beta Bleach, Naruto, or One Piece. They are very long, so I haven't gotten around to them yet. Same for Pokemon.
