Welcome to my journal! Nice to meet you, I'm Kat! =)
If you're new, welcome to my journal! As I am a beta and not a writer (though I've toyed with the idea), my journal will basically be schedule updates although I welcome fics anytime! If you want/need/think you might want/need a beta, go ahead and comment here, leave me an LJ message, or e-mail me at email@example.com! You have the best chance of reaching me through e-mail though. :D
I beta just about anything, (grammar knows no fandom!) although if you found this, you probably are a JE fan (plus I can actually comment on any OOCness in fandoms I'm familiar with)! My profile has my favorite pairings and groups, but don't worry if your preferred isn't on the list!
All I request (I hate this part =/) is that you briefly credit me; just a small mention is enough. I honestly don't particularly care about the credit itself; this is actually a good way I get more work as a beta. For example: other writers see my username on a story, realize they too need a beta, think my username's like so totally awesome, and request my services! I enjoy proofreading and giving my opinion on others' stories, and I think beta-ing is a good way to help give back to the fandoms that have provided me with so many distractions these past years. XDXD
Hello hello hello!!! *waves*
So! It's still summer for me (GOD I do not want it to be over yet...) so I have TONS of free time to beta!! I start school again on August 23rd so I'll be moving in a few days prior, and I might be busy some of those days preparing for the fall. Of course I will try my best to beta as quickly as possible, and I can't predict anything as of now (I might have more free time than I think I'll have!), but just in case, I want to warn you, the days right before and after the 23rd of August may be a little slow! =/
Anyway, thanks everyone who has given me work to beta; I enjoy reading all of your stories, and I look forward to beta-ing more! Talk to you guys soon!
I thought I'd just update again and let you know that I'm still willing to beta whatever you guys have got! College is keeping me pretty busy, but I welcome any fic that will serve as a distraction. =D Hope to talk to you guys soon! Remember, you can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Just wanted to give an update so you know I'm still here! I'm ready to beta anything you guys want so don't hesitate to message me or e-mail me at email@example.com! I hope to talk to you guys soon!
I realize I haven't updated my schedule since I was in China, which was in July, haha. Sorry about that! Anyway, I'm at university right now, and I've gotten lots of homework, but I still have free time I don't know what to do with so if anyone needs a beta, I'd be happy to help! I always try to be as fast as possible, but those of you who have sent me fics before and had me return them within the day, I can't make any promises that I will always be able to do that. However, know that I am always trying my best. =D Talk to you guys soon (hopefully)!!
Hello everyone from China! Now I usually have Internet, but I'm in a different city, and I have to use an Internet cafe to get on the Web. I'll be here until the 29th I think so just a heads up, I won't be able to check my e-mail as much as I usually do. Please keep sending any fics you need betaed; this is just a warning that I might be slower in checking them than I usually am. I'll keep trying my best! =)
On another note, as much of a Johnny's fan as I am, my all-time favorite singer is Michael Jackson, who has recently passed away. I just found out, as this is my first time on the Web since the 25th so I was completely shocked. I wonder, is anyone else out there a Michael Jackson fan? I had been neglecting his music a bit because I was so busy listening to Jpop, which isn't a bad thing! But I do find that sometimes, the Japanese pop culture makes me forget that there is other music out there. It's hard to think about how I listened to music before I discovered JE, but events like this force me back into how I was like before. It's sort of sad, and I hope I can find a balance between my love for Japanese music and my love for other music. Long live the King of Pop!!
I'm going to post my schedule for the next month-ish so that everyone who needs their fics beta-ed can know what's going on in my real life. When I'm really busy, I may not have enough time to beta fics quickly, but I will always try my best!
May 20-22 - Finals
Graduation - May 31st
Preparation for these events may take some time (especially those AP tests) so I apologize if I don't return fics as promptly as you want. But again, I will make the best effort I can!
Also, just a heads up, from June 20th to July 20th, I'm going overseas on vacation. I'll still have Internet, but I'll need to hang out with family and stuff too. While there, I'll keep updating my schedule to let you know how free I'm going to be to beta fics.
Starting in August, I'm going to college where the workload is obviously going to increase, but I'm planning to stay involved in fandom (as if I have any willpower to leave). But please don't be surprised or angry if I start to focus more on real life. Starting after the 11th, I'll have lots of free time so I hope you can be patient with me as I have and will have a busy schedule and not to mention, this is my first time beta-ing.
Hello everyone! I'm Kat, and I'm a huge JE fan. For those of you who don't know, JE = Johnny's Entertainment, a idol management agency in Japan. Anyway, I'm currently only a fanfiction reader, but who knows, maybe I'll become a writer in the future. Thanks for visiting although there's nothing to see yet, and don't hesitate to friend me!!
