Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a frequent reader of all types of novels, be it romances and mysteries to ancient Greek and Roman texts. Most of the material that I am most accustomed to reading it third or first-person past tense stories; however if your story uses a different style, do not let it discourage you. I should be able and willing to assist in correcting any type of story /br /

The way that I beta-read is through correcting all "tense" inaccuracies, spelling (if you don't have Word or Libre office, though I would highly recommend that you get one of the two), character portrayal and connecting plots. If there are any of these things, expect at least a comment, if not a harsh critique. If you are not prepared for that, do not ask for me to be your /br /

What I expect from a person when they wish for me beta is a story that is at least at the length of 2000 words, or you are just wasting my time. And as a more specific choosing, if it is either a Naruto or F/SN fanfiction, I request that you have at least 4000 words. If you are writing a One-Shot, a Crack or an AU fic, then I just don't care. Give me those by the gallon.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths consist of frequent reading and re-reading, along with spotting lack of dialogue (something that I bash myself for not accomplishing) and plot. Another point is characterization, which I can spot most errors in a characters reactions, feelings, emotions or anything of the sort; so long as I know that base that it is being built on ala Dark Souls.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I end up having a habit of occasionally skipping essential parts merely because I forget what part in the text I was in, leading me to get more and more lost as I continue reading. Sure, I may end up reading it when I re-read, but this puts me in a bad position when first offering my opinion. Also, if you are a German writer, I must apologize but I am using this as a learning experience for that.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Cracks. AUs. Crossovers. Give them to me, and you will get my full attention. Especially the cracks. I hold those in a special place in my heart for being too stupid to be true, while also being true to the original, in a way.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
If it is a lemon, get out of here. Unless there is a specific reason you want me as a beta-reader and can explain it to me in high detail (or know me), do not offer me any story of this type.
