|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm picky. Perhaps overly picky. I try to keep the story the author's as much as possible, but if I sincerely believe it's iffy, there will be plenty of red colored font filled with suggestions and a long end note.
I never change your dialogue or descriptions unless it's just punctuation or a typo. If I think it could be worded better, I usually just highlight it and put a suggestion in a text box near it so you can decide if you want to change it. I then send you back two copies of your story. One is completey punctuated and spell checked, the second is one with suggestions and hightlights possible weakness in the story.
I will personally kill anyone who sends me a fic that's completely written in chat speak or l337. Then I'll retype it in English and send it back to the corpse. =]
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling is a fairly strong point - small issues might occur though because I'm Australian and spelling differs a bit from American English. Punctuation is a biggy in my books. I'm pretty good at picking out rigid or iffy sentences that just don't seem to roll of the tongue so well.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As a writer - I'm not so good with dialogue or interesting descriptions and lack original imagination altogether.
As a beta, however, I'm pretty iffy on paragraphing and don't expect me to know the correct spelling of a character name if I'm not familiar with the show/comic/etc.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
One shots are welcome always. Particularly Card Captor Sakura (ExT especially). I'll beta pretty much anything though.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Song fics I'm not too fond of. Poems too - although I'm not sure why anyone would send those. That's about it.
Oh and fics that are written in chatspeak or l337. Definately no.
