Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am not overly critical and yet I do expect certain things. I do expect a certain level of spelling, we all have for the most part have spellcheck of some sort, I assume most have run it through (the only exception being if English is not your first language). I will always give two copies back and they will be labeled clearly. The original is always at the top and I post the edited version beneath just in case the author decides to go with th original. I have absolutely no toleration for betrayal fiction of any sort or series. I will send you your story back and politely tell you not to waste your time on me, & to find someone else. :-D
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a pretty good idea about most series's. But I really mainly operate in Power Ranger's (most PRIS, LG). Characterization, is my strongest suit. I have no trouble with keep personalities straight, handling reactions, writing interaction. :-D
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I miss grammar mistakes, it is not my strongest suit. I can get the basic stuff, like comma splices, run-ons, fragments. But beyond that I am not that great. I am definetly not a grammar nazi.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really mainly operate in Power Ranger's (mostly PRiS, Turbo, LG). I give my best characterization to these three periods in the order listed. Granted most of mine are PRiS. I do will beta it all yaoi, yuri, & het. I also do Sailor Moon, and SM x-over's of any kind. My best character is Makoto (Lita). But I will read a story about anyone. Save a few read below.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I reiterate no betrayal- esp. those of the SM world that then become crossovers. I don't read them, I sure as hell won't beta. It would be a cold day in hell before I do so. Also I happen to like Mamoru & Rei so not big on stories that have him as a wife abusing asshole out to kill Usagi. Or those where Rei (any other senshi for that matter) acts like a total bitch out to get her man, hurt her feelings/ try to kill/take away her silver crystal & she goes off looking for her "rightful place/true home/real family/ long lost love." For the record (this will probably be the reason no one ever ask for help but oh well) I am not Usagi's biggest fan, personally I like the original her created by Naoko Takeuchi, but the Usagi of fanfiction, on this site NO, HELL NO. She is always the martyr/ victim/ innocent who can do no wrong. Or the all powerful goddess playing the dumb ditz & she's fed up so she's now going to show her true colors. Thus as written above, other characters' get their personalities splintered to pieces. I drives me crazy. They are pointless drivel & I curse the soul and day the idiot wrote the first fic. like that.
