Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Well, I like to read people's stuff. It's fun. Nuff said? Nuff said.

My style? Hmn. I'll probably not change anything except spelling and grammar and syntax and the like, but put in notes that suggest changes. I'm not about to overhaul anything, that'd just be rude. :)

I am overall a friendly person, but I'm also an accomplished sporker and MSTer, so I will be honest with you- it's embarassing to have bad stuff out there for people to read, I know from experience!

I will always try to get back to you as quickly as possible, I check my email millions of times a day, usually, so even though sometimes I might be busy I'm usually pretty prompt.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Biggest? I'm a serious bitch about characters staying in character. Trust me, if you have someone acting out of character, YOU WILL KNOW ABOUT IT.

I'm quite good at grammar and spelling, and I'm usually pretty decent at syntax too, so I'll be able to check your writing for flow.

And of course, I definetely know what I like!

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm picky about what I read. Also, though I am honest, I always worry about offending people. I won't be able to chat through instant message, if you're the sort of person who likes that- I'm stuck to communicating through emails.

And I'm sort of an ellipsis (...) whore.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am quite picky. The bottom line?

MUST BE YAOI/SLASH.

Anything else I have difficulty getting into.

The only exception to this is for Eragon. I'll read anything with Oromis in it. Or actually, anything at all. The world needs more Eragon fic.

Preferred pairings are as follows:

For Eragon:
Oromis/Eragon

For FullMetal Alchemist:
Ed/Envy (FMA OTP)
Roy/Ed Cain/Jean

Lord of the Rings/Silmarillion:
Thranduil/Elrond (LotR OTP)
Glorfindel/Erestor Gil-Galad/Elrond Celeborn/Thranduil Legolas/Haldir (Really, I love any elfslash!)

Good Omens:
Crowley/Aziraphale (Good Omens OTP)
Famine/Pollution

Last Herald Mage:
Starwind/Moondance (LHM OTP, definetely what I write most.)
Stefen/Vanyel Tylendel/Vanyel

Sweeny Todd:
Anthony/Johanna (A hetero pairing that I like, le gasp)

I will read ANYTHING for Petshop of Horrors (slash is preferable) and Alexander (the fandom in which slash is expected). I will also read anything with slash for Earthian.

For Mercedes Lackey, I've only read The Last Herald Mage trilogy, so far (though I hope to remedy that).

And I ADORE mpreg. Love it!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Few things squick me out. Sex doesn't bother me. Fetishes don't bother me. Incest weirds me out, but I can deal with it. Oh! I won't read shotacon. That's creepy stuff.

Pairings I'm not fond of:

Eragon: I'll take anything.

FullMetal Alchemist:
Anyone/Al

Lord of the Rings:
Elladan/Elrohir Anyone/Boromir
