Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a beginning beta reader as of now, but I don't think I'm THAT bad...ahem. Well, I'm pretty nitpicky on the portrayal of the canon characters in a fanfiction and the presence of potential Mary-Sues. While I abhor Mary-Sues, I LOVE well-written original characters in a fanfiction. If they happen to be paired with certain characters, that's fine, as long as it's well written. The only pairing I won't tolerate is someone with Kratos from Tales of Symphonia...I mean, KratosxRaine is bad enough. D:

I'm somewhat of a pairing-whore, but if there's none in a story (or just as much hints as given in the game/anime) then that's perfectly fine.

Pokemon is a tentatively new fandom of mine and as such, really the only thing I'll look at is SoulSilvership at the moment. :(

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm pretty good with character portrayal...and I'm getting rather nitpicky on grammar too. But not too bad, I'm not a Grammar Nazi. ;)
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm rather laid-back when it comes to beta-reading, so I might not catch mistakes the first time around. It also might take me a while to respond, as I'm really busy with school and my own projects.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Zelos stories (Tales of Symphonia)
Leon stories (Tales of Destiny)
Klavier stories (Ace Attorney)
Gino stories (Code Geass)
Death the Kid stories (Soul Eater)
Any Hetalia story Anything about Gray, Vaults /Vaughn, Gill, or Julius (Harvest Moon)
SoulSilvershipping (Pokemon)
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
KratosxAnyone but Anna stories, blatant Mary-Sues (unless in a parody), and just over the top bad grammar stories. C'mon, a few here and there is okay, that's what the betas are for, but there's a computer grammar check button for a reason. :/

GillxLuna from Harvest Moon doesn't really fly by me for some reason either.

Also, I don't really like Kid paired with anyone (except for well-written OCs because I'm a loser). I dunno, I just can't really see him fitting that way with any of the canon characters. I LOVELOVE the KidLizPatti family/bffs dynamic though.
