Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I may not be a very good authoress, but I think I can be a pretty good beta. I am not an extremely liberal beta-reader, but will tolerate most things... EXCEPT Mary sues! And (this from experience) I tend to get involved deeply with the story and offer unwarranted comments about whether I like the way the story's shaping and stuff. I understand that the story belongs to author and I have really no right to say anything much about it except grammer and spelling, but I can't help it, that's the way I beta. If you can deal with that, fine by me. But if you're the type of author who needs a beta not to get involved with plot as much, then I'm not the one for you, okay?

Oh also, I am a college student with a lot of tests and assignments and I have to concentrate on my own works as well. I will be a little slow and will submit corrected versions of only one or two chapters at a time. But I will keep beta-reading whenever I have free time, and if I agree to beta'ing your work I WILL do it. So please stop reminding me every once in a while, I'll appreciate that.

All I expect people who wish to submit to-

Please spell-check once, that's all.

And once I send a corrected version, I expect people to acknowledge that they recieved it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Okay, my strengths would be-

1. I will veil my criticism and not hurt people

2. I am really good with yaoi works

3. No objections to yuri

4. I am also good with humor and parody

5. Am good with wording

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
1. I am really bad at assessing Alternate universe fics

2. I'm also pretty poor with fics where canon couples are broken. However, I'm fine with these fics if they are yaoi or yuri themed.

3. Very picky about grammer

4. I'm bad with fics where characters are OOC. I just can't help it.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Yaoi! I would love to beta-read romance and humour fics, especially Bleach and Rurouni Kenshin.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Like I said, alternate universe is not my cup of tea. OC romances I would prefer not to read. I'm fine with OCs adding a little spice to the story, but if they break up a canon couple I would be uncomfortable.
