|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello. I will accept beta reading requests for most fandoms (video games, anime/manga, and books included), though I will make sure and let you know if I am not familiar with the fandom you wish for me to beta. I will provide my beta services (as well as advertising on my profile page) in exchange for advertising, which means crediting me as a beta reader in each chapter I beta and perhaps even adding me as a favorite author (though the latter is not required). In return, I will review what I beta, advertise the story in my profile, and subscribe to your stories. I beta a number of things, including kids' stuff since I have had a lot of little kids around the house. Anyway, please feel free to pm or email me if you want any help! Thanks! ^-^
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
English grammar, strengthening of writing, watching for characters to stay in-character (applies to characters I am more familiar with), composition, precision, criticalness (I won't sugar-coat it if something needs work); I have completely finished beta reading 1 multi-chapter story and am currently working with various authors on several more multi-chapter stories (help me add more!).
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
time (sometimes it may take me a while to get your chapter back to you), and if I am not familiar with a character, then I cannot always watch for OOCness,
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
From Video Games, Anime/Manga, or Books; most plot lines work for me so there's no specific genre. Video Games I'm familiar with include Final Fantasy X/X-2/XII/VII, Shadow Hearts, Okami, Legend of Zelda, Kingdom Hearts, Assassin's Creed, Dead or Alive, Heavenly Sword, and Snowboarding Kids; Anime I'm familiar with include Naruto, Bleach, Full Metal Alchemist, D. Gray Man, Death Note, Fruits Basket, YuGiOh (not GX), Digimon (1st and 2nd season), Avatar the Last Airbender, Rurouni Kenshin, FLCL, Immortal Rain, Spirited Away, Petshop of Horrors, Chobits, Love Hima, Negima, AI Love You, Flame of Recca, and Wolf's Rain; for Books I'm familiar with, you will just have to ask on a book to book basis, though I can do Harry Potter for sure.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not really into blatant [non-canon] yaoi or yuri (though implied is okay) (exceptions may be made for well written stuff, feel free to ask). I also don't want any blatant sex stories with no point - I'm here to beta stories, not lemons. NO MARY SUES. If your plotline smells of sue, I will have nothing to do with it.
