|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I have particular favourite character for each series that I enjoy. Chances are I will be more likely to read it with these characters in it.
Gundam Wing: Zechs, Treize Heero and Duo
Inuyasha: Sesshoumaru and Kagome
FFVII: Sephiroth, Reno and Cloud
D.N.Angel: Krad, Dark, and Satoshi
Any from the other Series I Beta under.
I will point out everything that I think needs improvement. I will not hesitate to tell you when I think an idea is overused or not well executed. Don't think I'm being mean, but I am more critical with others' works than I am with my own (which is retarded if you ask me). I take all forms of writing seriously. Many people tell me that "oh it's just fanfiction". No. It's not just fanfiction. It is a work of fandom inspired art, meants to entertain or be a personal peice of satisfaction. If you can't take it seriously, I don't want to read it.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm best with character developement and dialogue. I love humor, but I also enjoy some character torturing because it's amusing. I also enjoy gradual love interest. For instance, characters do not go from hating each other one minute, to bonking on the floor and screaming "I LOVE YOU" five minutes later. I enjoy realism.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Character description is my weak point as far as writing. I don't like reading large blocks of text and pointless description is also a distraction. I also get very nit picky on very minute things.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer ones that don't do constant POV switches, I like characters to be in character, but have an individual flair given by the author. (And for God's sake, I HATE reading typical 'this has been done five hundred times already' fics.)
And I refuse to read a story littered with KAWAII [insert name]-san! I'm english. I don't speak Japanese. I would prefer reading work with decent vocabulary, but I can't ask for everything/
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not much of a straight pairing reader. I LOVE YAOI. However, with Inuyasha, I prefer Sesshoumaru/Kagome. I don't do INCEST. That's not my thing. I won't read Vampire fics and I'm hesitant on AU, because I don't feel the characters are being used for their original purposes, but if it's written well enough to pull it off I'll look into it. I will read AU only if the characters are still the characters. If you send me a fic that is "such and such went to highschool in the 21st century and met Such and such and fell in love lol." then I won't even reply. Keep them where they belong.
