|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Your story needs to make sense, at least so that I know what you're writing about, or else how do I edit it? I'll fix grammar and spelling errors, I use NZ english, color has to have a u in it, neighbor has to have a u in it, and sorry if I can't get all the spelling and grammar errors, I'm human. I beta to procrastinate, so rest assured I'll probably beta it quite quickly. Don't make your story too long, or I might strangle you. I'm new to this, so tell me what you want me to watch out for, action scenes, dialogue etc. You're on your own for humour. Can't crack a joke to save my life, unless you count that's what she said jokes. I'm a polite person, but if you test my patience by making repetitive spelling mistakes, watch out.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to think I pick up on errors quite quickly, especially spelling errors. As I said, I'm a nice person, I won't say particularly cutting remarks, though I guess I am capable of getting the point across. I can tell you where something doesn't quite make sense, or needs expanding, though I do tend to miss details. Yeah...
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Don't ask me about tenses, just no. Chinese don't have tenses okay?! This is so not my fault. If you like semicolons go away. If I don't like the pairing, I don't think I can beta properly, but I'll do my best. I've been told I get carried away sometimes.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Uh, fanfiction of a story I've read/seen, please? For example, I haven't read Maze Runner, so I wouldn't know all the slangs in it, and don't know the context, but I can still tell you the basic stuff. I can beta some movies, but only disney movies or other animated movies. I don't mind smut, but I'd prefer not to beta them. Any kind of pairing other than incest is fine. Cool?
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't like dirty sounding fanfics, namely, swearing indiscriminately for no apparent reason, and fanfics that don't really go anywhere, they are boring to read, so I'll do a very bad job, and we wouldn't want that now will we? Oh, and angst that drags on too long is physically painful for me to read. No Laven please. I know, how mean, I just can't picture Lavi with anyone other than Lenalee. No incest!
