I suppose, I am now something of a veteran of . I've been here since 2003. ...jesus...that's 12 years...okay, I take that back...no supposing, I AM a veteran of this site. :/ Not that I think that's a bad thing, however. It just means I have seen a lot on this site and by this I mean, I have seen some of the most amazing pieces of work-works that should in all honesty be published (if not for that pesky licensing issue) and I have also seen the worst of the worst...those of which usually come in 3 forms: 1. Trolls: They know what they're writing is garbage, they just continue to write it for the flames. 2. Newbies: Writers just beginning and USUALLY (not always, see number 3) looking to improve. And finally 3. Fools:...it's the only thing I can call them. These are the people who started out writing crap (like all of us did at one point) and continued to do so. How? Instead of receiving constructive criticism (or heeding it when they received it) they just continued shelling out mindless fanservice and have somehow racked up a fanbase because of it, giving them the very wrong idea that they don't need to improve or work on their writing (which is ridiculous because all accomplished writers continue to work to improve. A good writer, will never truly be satisfied with their skill.)br /br /br /br /br /br /br /

Trolls can be funny sometimes, but it's not my cup of tea to beta for them. Fools...I can't even deal with seeing their work and their review responses...I sincerely doubt I could beta for them. Now, as for newbies...haaaahhhh...I would like to, but I'm not sure I could help the newcomers all that much. There's a lot to be learned and much like my generation learned how to be computer literate, I feel that it's one of those things that's best learned simply by experimenting on your own. However, I'd be willing on a case by case basis to assist. Preferably, I'd work with intermediate writers or even veterans like /br /br /

As a beta reader I value the same things that I try to put into my own work and that is characterization and world building. To me fanfiction is the opportunity to explore an already complex character or to make a complex and multi-faceted version of an existing 2-dimensional character a.k.a. to breath life into them, to make-as much as a possible-them feel REAL. Not just some fangirl/boy's day dream. And what better to place such a being than in a world just as complex and functional as they themselves. DETAILS...wonderful, beautiful, all inclusively important, DETAIL. I will do everything in my power to help you formulate a believable realm for your story to take place in.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Plot holes. You got one? I can patch that sucker with ease. Got several? Gimme a bit longer, I can still get it done. The more I know about the plot, the intended ending, and the characters dwelling in it, the quicker and I can connect the dots, and fill in the holes for you...or at least throw out some helpful /

br /

If you haven't noticed from the previous section, I take Characterization and World Building relatively important and I'd like to think myself pretty good at /

br /

Flow, for some strange reason, I'm pretty good at making ideas and words flow. I wouldn't want to read something and have to individually decipher each word and incorporate it as I read and so I do my best not to do so in my own writing. It's always better when words flow right into the other, creating a single cohesive idea that transitions flawlessly scene to scene in the reader's mind. I wouldn't say, I'm perfect at it, but I think I'm pretty decent and so I can help you with that.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I feel that I might be a bit impatient at times and I worry that I might be a bit harsh in my criticisms when I'm being bluntly honest (one of the reasons I prefer not to work with newbies.) I expect a certain level of maturity in the stories that I beta as I can't beta a story that I myself wouldn't want to read. ...which brings me to my next issue...If I myself wouldn't want to read your story outside of beta-ing it, then I probably won't be able to help you as I wouldn't be able to focus my attention span on your work. /br /br /br /br /br /br /

As for my technical weaknesses, I can be a bit unhelpful with punctuation. I, myself, am a former comma hoarder, and now currently hoard hyphens. While I am certainly not the worst with punctuation, I'm definitely not the best either, so while I can assist you with that aspect, you may still want to run it through a spell check/punctuation check program before posting it.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
sci-fi, fantasy, comedy, romance, action/adventure, angst, drama i might be able to do limes/lemons..well i know i can but it actually depends on my personal preference of the pairing. but it really doesn't matter what the pairing is otherwise. Even the pairings that i have listed that i don't like, there's a small chance that i will beta them if you explain to me your plot.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
yaoi & no yuri either...sorry...not that i'm against it or anything. It's just that i have to actual be interested in the plot or story for me to read it and those tend to be far and few in between...of course, for that very reason, you are still welcome to shoot it by me. If you want me to hate you, send me a mary sue, i dare you. I'll pick that creature a part so quickly your head will spin. br /br /br /br /br /br /br /
