Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to try and help improve peoples' grammar and characterization through friendly and helpful advice. I try not to be too hard on you, but if you can't take some friendly critique, I wouldn't suggest me. I don't scold for mistakes and I simply try and mostly coax along to improvement.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
All the categories I beta for I know very well. XD Therefore, I know situations that have occurred and haven't occurred. I can do AU, as well, so I can help improve characterization in alternate universes, since it is more challenging to do so. I try to very hard to see what I personally like in fics, which is interesting word choice, strong characterization and at least a vague plot.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm very busy, so I tend to put things off for a long time. I've also been told I'm too nice and not harsh enough when it comes to critiquing.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like fluffy romances most of all. They make me grin and coo and feel good inside. I can also do angsty stuff since I enjoy reading about turmoil and high emotions in characters.

Pairings wise, for my fandoms I can do mostly anything. I am more familiar with some, though, those being:

Death Note: L/Light, Matt/Mello, Mello/Near.
Kingdom Hearts: Axel/Roxas, Zexion/Demyx, Riku/Sora.
Gundam SEED: Dearka/Yzak, Athrun/Kira, Heine/Athrun.
Final Fantasy VII: Zack/Cloud, Cloud/Reno, Zack/Aeris, Cloud/Aeris, Rufus/Reno.
Final Fantasy X: Tidus/Yuna, Auron/Tidus.
Code Geass: Suzaku/Lelouch, Suzaku/Euphie, Lelouch/Rolo, Gino/Suzaku.
Tsubasa: Kurogane/Fai, Syaoran/Sakura.
Black Butler (Kuroshitsuji): Sebastian/Ciel, Agni/Soma.
D.Gray-Man: Lavi/Allen, Lavi/Kanda.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I can't beta smut. Honestly. I can write it or read it, but trying to critique people on it just makes me really uncomfortable. I will, but it's a lot harder for me... I also can't beta S&M stuff at all, I just can't -touch- it. It makes me squirm.
