Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello (: I generally love reading romance, parodies and humour. I'm pretty alright with Action and Adventure stories although I don't typically read stories of that genre. I usually read fanfictions involving Girl/Girl relationships but I'm up for anything. xD

I don't mind adult content and actually enjoy reading well written and believable love scenes. I'm basically very particular to how the story flows and how it creates tension if there is any.

I usually read the story a few times, checking for errors and the general flow of the story. Errors I check for are Grammar, appropriate vocabulary and spelling, tense changes, missing links, irony ( if it's not supposed to be there ), out-of-character-ness, plot holes and factual errors.

I don't expect much, but as cliche as this sounds, Patience is a Virtue. I will be happy ( and quite honoured )to beta your story, but I've got schoolwork as well as a not-so-exciting-but-active social life ( Guitar hero IS a social life T^T ) so I really don't appreciate angry emails telling me to hurry the ( explicitive ) up.

I also expect you to be open to some form of criticism. So yeah. Humility and maturity is a nice thing to have. Oh and um, chatspeak just doesn't do for me so if you have a story full of " u "s and "ur"s , I can't do much but tell you to eat a dictionary. (:

But really, Despite all this... I REALLY AM QUITE NICE! :D *evil laugh*

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Story Flow, Grammar, Descriptive Language, Detail, and Fluff.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am incredibly long winded, to the point of being rather dull. I add too much detail into my writing and am sometimes very repetitive. I also overuse the word " and ". I get bored quite easily as well.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance, Parodies, Humour. I also prefer to beta stories that is in my fandom and in my preferred genres.
Oh and I absolutely adore Fanfictions based on Reality TV Shows eg, Amazing Race/Survivor.
I prefer oneshots or shortfics as I get bored easily unless it's an Reality TV Parody.
I love short cute fluff fics. Long fics are fine, but I lose interest if the story is not well... interesting.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories with Character Death Horror or Gore ( I'm rather squimish... Medical Stories are fine however.)
Stories with excessive angst. A bit is fine, but I don't want to feel depressed when I read a story T^T.
Pairings that break up with each other, then never go back together until 23647028740 chapters later. ( I'm sorry, I can't read stories like these T.T)
