Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My background as a reviewer comes from the now defunct Fan Fiction Yakuza, a group which used to work with Evangelion fictions more than a decade ago.br /

br /

When I read, I expect things to make sense from a logical point of view, whichever "logic" applies on the setting. I hate clich├ęs so if you want to get one through me you'll have to give it an interesting coating, or I'll shoot it down.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I consider myself good at analysing characters as well as story lines and their continuity.br /

br /

I strive to be critical but fair, you won't get "it's good" or "it's bad" out of me, I'll always provide constructive criticism.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm rigid in my beliefs and when I read a fan-fiction I tend to favour the original, if you stray away too much, it has to be sufficiently justified for me to enjoy it.br /

br /

English being my second language, I don't consider my knowledge of grammar to be good enough to correct others.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer long stories with lots of content to work with.br /

br /

Stories that strive to provide realism, adjusted to the setting.br /

br /

Adventure, Action and Fantasy are what I like the most.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Works that delve too much in the minds of the characters and do away with the story itself.br /

br /

Cliches and cookie-cutter characters, deux ex machina and overuse of "tour de force".
