Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Let's start with expectations; I don't have due dates or 'do-it-now' deadlines. Everyone's busy, I get that. I take breaks to get a fresh perspective, no biggie. But I do expect that my feedback be taken as seriously as I'm going to take the story, because honestly, I'm going to assume that anyone that throws their writing at me loves this stuff and wants to make themselves better. I don't care if you discard some of the feedback because it doesn't really relate to the story, or if you argue with me about it. I like communication and understanding. I'll tell you what I think, you tell me if I'm right or if I'm an idiot, as long as you tell me WHY. Also, if you don't like the feedback I'm giving, please tell me why so that I can also better myself in this area. Awesome. br /br /br /br /br /

As for me, I love reading and editing. I love helping people grow, especially when I feel like I can't. It inspires me to better myself as well. br /br /br /br /br /

Anyway, that's about it. In the end, I hope I can help people with their writing to the best of my ability.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
No matter the subject matter, I can grasp the general purpose of your story quite quickly; if I can't, then there is a problem. With my writing, and especially my editing, I have seriously high attention to detail. Can't help it, I suppose. But my biggest strength? br /br /br /br /br /

I'll be able to tell you from the first page if I'm buying your character, and thus if your audience is buying it. Because honestly, I won't read/watch/write any content that has a terrible main character. I don't even care if the main character is a psycho villain; if I can't relate to, or at the very least admire your characters, I'll let you know. And I'll help you big time with that part. The actual technical writing part can come later. Priorities, people!

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I love to read and above all, FIX. So if you're worried that I won't get back to you because I'm lazy or procrastinate, don't be(unless of course I'm inactive). I love giving good, constructive feedback. I love helping people with their passion. If anything, my greatest weakness would perhaps be picking up everything. I'm not always a perfectionist, but when it comes to writing I just can't seem to help myself. So if you can call giving too much feedback a weakness, then yeah, that'd be mine.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like most genres. Especially romance. I do love my romance, and yes, that includes yaoi. But I also love the action and suspense. When it comes to actual subject matter, I would prefer anime/manga that I have watched/read. This includes Kuroko no Basuke (majorly), Naruto, Hellsing, Berserk, Yona of the Dawn, Super Lovers, and many more. br /

One thing I won't do is beta a story that has clearly had no effort put into the editing/punctuation. I want to be able to read your story without brow-twitching every second sentence, so that I can demonstrate my strengths to you involving characterisation and plot. That being said, I don't mind editing errors in the story. I just don't want them jumping out at me.

How about you throw your story at me and decide if I'm a suitable beta for it?

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
The only kind of stories I would say no to are stories that have no plan to be improved in any way. Because, you know, why you even looking for a beta if you don't want improvement in your writing style...? Also, if there are so many mistakes that you know your fanfic is bad, but can't be bothered putting enough effort in to try, I won't edit those either. Have some enthusiasm for your own writing; I won't write someone's story for them. br /br /

Anyway, I guess for this one you can refer to my last answer.
