Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm a mid-twenties male university student. I've read a lot of books and love sci-fi/fantasy a lot. Crossovers are a special interest of mine. These days I haven't had that much time for writing due to real-life obligations, but beta-ing is something I have time for.

While not too good with grammatical errors, I can find most of them. However, I tend to have a bit of a different viewpoint on things than most others and at the least can act as a sounding board. At best I'd like to think I'll be able to prevent errors, proof-read and clean out nonsensical bits from stories. I tend to be quite logical of things and follow up with questions like 'why did he do that?', 'did she react accordingly' and 'if he can do X, why didn't he use it in this case'.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Strong interest in sci-fi and fantasy stories. I know quite a bit about real-life physics, chemistry and mathematics with some theoretical physics thrown in. But if you start talking about Star Trek megawattage vs Star Wars megawattage, then I'm lost, I'm not quite that much of a nerd. Also I have some viewpoint out of the economic perspective. I've read a lot of novels and even when english isn't my native language I do speak andread/write it quite well these days.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Pure romance/fluff stories. Never liked them too much, so I don't have too much experience with them. Also ridiculous over-powered 'I'm a god and I'm going to pwn you all' stories are more than a bit boring.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Personally I like sci-fi, fantasy and crossovers the best, with emphasis on action, suspence, plots and/or characterization. Standard detective and suspence stories are interesting as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Full-blown harem or must-pair-everyone stories. Most of the time those tend to be so far out of anything even approaching sanity that I just can't stand them. Also pure romance novels, where most of the text is fluff and people are insecure, romantisizing teenagers stumbling through the akward blocks of life repeatedly and don't seem learn from them. Also forget any and all age-regression-for-therapy-and-lonely-chilhood stories. And people repeatedly getting hurt for no reason other than to make them sick and weak so that they can wallow in self-pity and be shown the way to healing via the support of their previously unrealized soulmate....No. Just no.
