I go by a few titles (though they are all related): Sakumie Tenshi the Maniac Makenshi, ManiacTenshiMakenshi, TenshiMakenshi, ManiacTenshi, KuroTenshi-tan. Most prefer to call me "Tenshi" or "Crona".
Sites I'm active on for my art/writing would be deviantart, fanfiction.net, lunaescence, and archive of our own. My alias is always one of the listed, with or without spaces. If my works are seen anywhere else, please notify me.
I'm into just about anything art-related, especially literature, Japanese animation, and music. Psychology and culture really interest me as well. My current fandom obsessions are Soul Eater and a bit into Artemis Fowl, but I'm not limited to these. I tend to love psychological thrillers, realistic deep romances, supernatural junk, zombie junk, just about any story/game/etc. where things are intense such as life and death situations but well executed with likable characters. I'm a drama lover, within my picky boundaries. I also have a soft spot for fluff like shoujo romances, again according to my specific tastes.
Will check for:
- Canon Elements
- Overall Impression
About my services: If you are looking for a beta reader for pairing fics focused on SasuSaku or KidCrona, or a single character fic focused on either of the characters involved in the afore mentioned pairings, then I'm your beta. I might be up for betaing other fictions of the listed anime/manga I'm up to date with depending.
I have betaed multiple stories rated K to M. If you are a Gmail user, then be happy to know I am active on GoogleDocs. I am up to date with the Soul Eater manga, finished the Soul Eater anime, have read most of Naruto (only recent chapters I'm not up to date with and I do not watch Shippuden), have finished the Angel Beats! (anime) and Kamisama Kazoku (anime).
As your beta, I expect you to have already made every effort to edit the story. It doesn't have to be perfect of course, but I do expect you to have made a good effort on your part. I also expect to know the following in advance: story title, content (either the link to a story or a message/email containing it), story genre, story type i.e. Is it focused on a pairing, a single character, etc., rating, and do you want me to beta the whole story or only a certain chapter?
As your beta reader, I will correct spelling, correct punctuation, correct sentence and paragraph structure, help with definitions and synonyms/antonyms. I will give my opinion and comments on the story, plot, and pace of the story. If there is anything you want me to do that is not listed above or anything above you do not want me to do, let me know.
Now that my preferences and requirements have been stated, let me assure you I am very polite and friendly. I will always try to be helpful and kind as well as comprehensive when correcting and commenting.
Will not read: Works containing rape, incest, or certain pairings. I am extremely picky over pairings I will beta, simply because if I am put out of my comfort zone, then I will not provide the best for the story or the writer, which is unfair to everyone. Gore is something I prefer not to go into, but it depends on how extreme it is.
