Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy reading works of fiction that is mostly about anime or anime crossovers with Kagome Higurashi as the main female lead. I'm a huge fan of the Kagome Xover Fandom! The works I've read have a lot of potential, but it could use a lot of work because of poor grammar, etc. If there is anyone who wishes to have me proof-read their work, I don't mind. Honestly, it would be my pleasure to improve the works of others to their full potential! My only expectations would be that I receive a warning in advance if the work has any of my weaknesses so that I could work to their satisfaction. I wouldn't want to change something that is intentional according to the author.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths would be improving any type of grammar, spelling mistake, etc. I could also work around the general style of a story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
It's my first time being a beta-reader and the only experience I have on proof-reading is my own work, so I might make or miss minor mistakes. My pet peeves would also be considered my weaknesses, which would be name order, currency, and the first person perspective. It just rubs me off the wrong way when names are introduced as first name first and the wrong currency is used when the character is obviously of Asian descent and living in Japan for example, because really, dollars ($) instead of yen (¥) in Japan? If they are stated to be living elsewhere then its fine, and as long as the right currency is used, but otherwise it just grates on my nerves. First person perspective, I just don't like. Period. I can tolerate it, but for some reason I just don't like it. I just feel that using the first person perspective takes away from the story, but that's just my opinion.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
My preference would be anime-based works, mostly crossovers with Kagome Higurashi from Inuyasha as the main female lead, but I would also say in advance if a story is not to my liking. Katekyo Hitman Reborn! is also high up in my list of favorites. If I don't beta read a story, it would mostly likely be because I don't have much knowledge about the work of fiction that is being written about.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If I don't beta-read a story, as I have stated before, it would be because I don't have much knowledge about the work of fiction that is being written about.
