NOTE : If a reviewer beta-reads a fan fiction, that reviewer cannot review that fan fiction if it ever gets submitted.
NOTE : If you are looking for a beta-reader for your fan fiction, you can simply e-mail the Beta-Readers Email List (firstname.lastname@example.org), and it will be sent to 50+ beta-readers, who can contact you about the possibility of doing a beta-reading (if they are interested in doing it). One does not have to be registered or subscribed to the mailing list in order to send mail to it.
The beta reader mailing list is for requests only. DO NOT use it to distribute your story.
I will not read stories entrenched in extended universe references. I will not read stories with extreme or constant romantic overtones, though I can stand romance as a part of the story. I will read, but tire quickly of, redundant stories (e.g. clone of so-and-so, son/daughter of so-and-so, etc.).
I am a fairly harsh critic, admittedly. But I will not flame, I will not tear something down because I do not like it or because I don't agree with it. I will offer ideas on what I think needs to be fixed, edited, corrected, or added. I will read your story beginning to end and offer constructive criticism as well as praise.
I prefer well-written stories that neither talk down to nor talk up to the readers. Talk to them on their own level. I enjoy stories, most particularly, that use all original characters. I also highly enjoy stories centering on the Jedi Exile (of Knights of the Old Republic II).
My notes and comments are long, but thorough. If you want a complete, thorough, honest, and straight-forward comment then come to me. Just don't flame me if I trash your baby.
As for my life in general (and all the rest, as the prompt states), I am a guessing game. Take a guess and I might tell you if you're close.
I'll read pretty much anything listed above. If I receive something that I just don't feel right about reading, I'll tell you. But as of right now, I have no problems reading any of the above mentioned things. I am good at proofreading and will give my comments and ideas. Constructive criticism and the like. I will also try to get them back to you as soon as I can.
I don't perticulary care for anything too Imperial or Sith. I love the good guys and Romance especially. One of the only imperials I like is Thrawn.
I'm a somewhat eccentric person and my mom was an English major, so I grew up learning proper English. I'm good at finding spelling errors and stuff like that. I also know a lot about Star Wars.
