Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a very careful reader, and I love reading fanfiction, so to beta check anywork that is in the fandoms I read, aren't chores, but are almost fun, this doesn't take away any of the effort I put /br /

Before this profile, I beta-checked for five other authors, each producing works of different genres, lengths, characters and plots, so I am capable of any type of /br /

I only expect from those who contact me to have chapters that are in English, and are serious and don't mind a little constructive critisicm. I give encourage everyone to change things themselves, as it improves writing quality, and each writer has a different style. br /br /

When I beta, I not only look for general spelling and grammatical errors, but for wording issues, and parts that may seem unclear to readers. I am rather thorough if I do say so myself, and will point out any issues I find, along with suggestions the author could use to correct these. Each author's style is different, and I only like to provide suggestions, as I don't want to force my own style upon them :)

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've been on this site long enough that I can spot OOC in the stories and fandoms I write for at a 10 mile radius. I can quickly and accurately check any document for any typing and tense-related errors, and this can be backed up by the fact that in my English examinations, my marks were in the top five percent of the entire country. (Trying not to boast there!) I can also point out areas that seem rushed or need a little more depth, without being harsh. I am quite happy to brainstorm with authors suffering from writer's block, and offer my own ideas to help their own. I am not critical of anyone's work, but I like to consider myself encouraging, giving more constructive criticism than anything else.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While I am good with any length pieces, if they are very long, it may take me a while to get through them in good enough depth. Unfortunatley, while I will try and get every piece beta'd in 48 hours, it may take up to a week as I am a teacher and work full time. Because of this I'm happy to give advice and look over particular areas, but I might not be the best choice for a long, epic story!
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a sucker for romance, so those stories will be fine. All genres I will be fine with though. The fandoms I prefer are the ones I write for which are Yu-Gi-Oh, Final Fantasy X, Zelda, Escaflowne and the Phoenix Wright series. But aslong as I have heard/watched/read whatever it is, I should be completley fine with anything. (The list at the bottom is only a few) I will let you know if you would be better off with a different beta, as I don't believe in working with something if I am not 100% sure I can help improve on it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Actually no, I don't think so! Anything new, and unexpected it great, opening my eyes to pairings I would've never considered!
