Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hey! So, I suppose this is where I introduce myself? I am Claw (she, her, hers, in case you were wondering) and I am a Secondary English Ed Major (admittedly a freshman but I do take quite a bit of pride in my spelling and grammar). This is my first time becoming a beta reader and if you are reading these words then that means that I have 1 year of experience as I will take this down one year after I receive my first request. I will come out and say it, I do enjoy reading cross-overs; I know some people dislike them (though I don't know why), but I find them interesting in how the author twists the two unrelated worlds together to make their tale. This DOES NOT mean that I will only take requests for cross-overs. Because this is my first time beta-reading I don't have a particular style (or if I do, I don't know it) so I can't really explain that too well and I apologize for it. I will come out and say it, please use paragraph breaks and periods before sending something to me. You don't have to be perfect, but try to avoid sending giant walls of text that are composed of a single paragraph. Also, please try and tell me the point-of-view (1st/2nd/3rd) and verb tense (past/present) when you ask me to read something; I know personally that sometimes when I write I won't pay attention and accidentally switch mid-story, this sometimes happens if you step away from the computer for a while or even just jumping between scenes (for example writing one scene and then going back in the timeline to write the next may cause you to use past-tense verbs when you meant to use present). In reference to using foreign (non-English) words and/or forms of address in the story. This doesn't bother me, but I do ask that you provide the translation for the word in any and all such instances. br /

I suppose that is all, if you're still reading this then congratulations and I apologize for being so wordybr /

Ciao, br /

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am generally very good with spelling and grammar, this includes verb-tenses, point-of-view, homophones, and I promise I know the difference between there, their, and they're, your and you're, and to, two, and too. I am from the U.S. though so there may be some differences in spelling if you're not.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I will admit to not being very good with characterization, I'm not one-hundred percent on keeping them in-character or even checking for it in others' stories but if they're too far out-of-character I'll be able to check it. I'm also still working on figuring out when to use who and whom.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm generally pretty accepting of any and all stories and I don't really have a preference.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories that repeatedly make characters sing songs. I don't mean when you take a song and it inspires you so you put the lyrics in between the paragraphs. I mean when you send them to a karaoke bar or have them sit in their room and brood while listening to music and singing along or even just typing out the lyrics of the song. I'm sorry, it just always annoys me and I can't even read it for pleasure. Apart from that I'm generally pretty accepting of anything (yes, that includes porn and violence). If i find out around half-way through that I am uncomfortable with what is occurring in the story then I will tell you and we will see what we can do from there as I really wouldn't want to (theoretically) leave you hanging.
