Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My name is antiassasinguy, and have been on this site for more than 3 years. I read harshly, critically and scrutinizingly. I will not sugarcoat my words with the gutter troll that has plagued the review sections of your stories with invalid praise and unrated support. If you wish to acquire my services, the only thing you require, my fellow writer, is the extreme condition of being gutted like a fish more often than not. I am not a cruel critique, I will only push you in a direction that need be. However, I WILL require you to supply me with spoilers of sorts so I may know where the story is leading up to. Usually, I am available between Fridays and Sundays (EST) if you would like a "while you wait" read-through. I expect also, no lip, but an open ear. I will listen to what you have to say, but allow me to finish before your lips part.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Romance-centered situations and out-of-character interaction, as well as action sequences and dramatic monologues. My MAJOR strength, however, is recognizing the good flow of stories, sequences of wording and of course, recognizing a good characterization (OOC and IC) and a staple for common sense when reading. I will criticize "Godmodes", "Unexplainables" and "Unfathomables", and will hold very few bars back in the undertaking of my task.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to miss out the finer details of stories (The odd question mark, period or even the odd comma).I may also take around 3 to 5 days to fully read, understand and practice your ways/style at first before getting into it as enthusiastically as the next person.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romantic tales, emotional connections, deadpan laughter, black comedies; anything that involves a good plot, really; a loose idea, even.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi, yuri and canon pairings of almost any fandom, with the notable exception of the Fate/Stay Night section. Also, I tend to to ignore action/adventure stories that involve harems; they don't bore me, it's just that it's unrealistic to have a horde of women after you AND you kick butt like there's no tomorrow, but otherwise, bring it on. HarryGinny of the Harry Potter Fandom is also a no-no, unless it is a non-serious romance.
