Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I really don't know what to put for some of the topics here, so I'll wing it.

1. Who I am as a Beta reader.

I am a person who betas stories, I really fail to see how much more I can elaborate on that, I've been doing it for a while but it not like I'm famous or something ^^

2. My Beta reading style.

Logical mostly, I tend to over-elaborate, especially when I am really enthusiastic about the story, try not to criticize but guide in the right direction, especially since I know that many people write with English as a second (at least) language.

3. Expectations

I expect the author(s) requesting my services to respect my opinions and the time I take to comment on various flaws, inconsistencies or errors in the stories I beta as I try to be as meticulous as possible, which is mentally taxing and time consuming. I expect the the author to be willing to have disagreements and relevant discourse if they hold opinions or views that differ from mine, except for grammar and typographical errors, I mean come on, how can you dispute something like that, it has rules dammit! (and yes I do take slang or improper spelling for characterization or clever/toilet humour into account)

4. Miscellaneous

Obviously someone cannot beta what they don't know, unless only asked to beta the language mechanics (which I can easily do).

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I excel at wording, spelling, punctuation and grammar and I'm pretty good at spotting characterization errors or flaws.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My main weakness is that if I greatly like a specific character (or conversely dislike them greatly)I can fall prey to the oft made mistake of ignoring or blowing out of proportion certain character flaws or strengths. As I am aware of this flaw of mine, I work avidly to avoid it, if you feel that I may be guilty of this if I beta your story, please call me up on it.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
The stories I prefer to beta are obviously ones that feature characters I like and if you check my bio you will see them. I also like unusual pairings as I find myself hardly liking canon pairings in most anime's and games.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi aka Slash, especially explicit, just no. Stories that bash characters unnecessarily. Stories that have graphic descriptions of mutilation, especially of women, I just can't stomach that stuff...urgh. No spamfics
