1. Are you new to beta reading?
Yes. I've never had a beta reader before.
2. Your age (optional):
3. Genre(s) – Please be specific to pieces you want beta read:
Romance, action, drama. The story I'm currently looking for someone to beta read is based off the movie Kick Ass, and the pairing is Dave/Chris. I don’t require that you see the movie beforehand, characterization isn’t really an issue. It is indeed a slash fic. Don’t worry though, it actually does have a plot.
Fanfic summary: slight AU where one geeky superhero (Dave) has a run in with a mafia boss’ son (Chris) while on a seemingly uneventful trip to the comic book store. The two boys start out as enemies, but it isn’t long before that they become friends. However, Chris still has some trust issues, and he’s dealing with abuse at home. Dave wants to help, but he only ends up making everything a thousand times worse.
4. Rating: G, PG, PG-13, R, or MA?
Between R and MA.
Includes mature themes such as canon-typical violence. Smut isn’t a big part of the story, but it does enter at some point much later, so if you’d prefer to ignore those bits altogether that’s fine with me.
6. What's your writing skill level?
Moderate? I'm not exactly the best judge of my skill. You know the saying; you're your own toughest critic.
7. How serious are you about your writing?
I'm very serious about writing. I want to awe my reading audience and make them question why I'm not a published author yet.
8. What writing aspects are you trying to improve?
Grammar is the number one thing on my list. But I would also like to improve on my writing as a whole.
9. What are you looking for in the beta reader?
I’m looking for a beta reader who is very skilled with grammar and picking up run on sentences; they’re admittedly a weakness of mine. Maybe someone who can help offering suggestions involving word use, and sentence flow/structure.
10. Do you promise to put sincere effort into your partnership?
