Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So I like to read a story a couple of times, first just to see if it is an enjoyable and believable story. Then I look for obvious grammar and spelling mistakes and the like. I try to be as thorough as possible because I want your stories to be as good as they can be. Last, I check to make sure that the story flows well and the characters are realistically developed, because to me there is nothing worse than a character making some ridiculous jump in power *Cough*Dragonball Z*Cough*, so I like realistic increases in power. Also, don't write it to me in one giant paragraph, or a million little paragraphs. Both of those bother me to no end.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very quick. I have a quick reading speed so I can quickly turn around what you send me without it being a load of crap. I have a lot of free time usually so that also works for you when I can give as much time as possible to your fic. I'm not a grammar nazi, but I am thorough so you will get it back with the mistakes corrected well, at least I hope...
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am fairly new at this, so I might make mistakes, however I will strive to continue to get better, so I can make your story even better.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like romance stories, but not the super sappy kinds. I like that too, but I usually look for a little more in my stories. I also like a good action sequence, as long as it is well written. I will read just about anything though.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a big fan of AU stories, though I will read them if they are well done. But if you write a story that is CharacterXOC, then don't even bother sending it because I despise that more than anything, though I am fine with OC's because I know that a fic usually can't function with just canon characters. Ummm, other than that, I don't like OOC characters unless it is a developed out of character that makes sense. So unless that characters change logically, don't bother with me. That's about it.
