Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm new to betareading, but I'm hoping to use betareading as a new experience for writing and improving my own stories. My expectations for those who seek my services are competence with the English language and a catchy plot. If you suck at English, then don't bother sending me your story because I will spit it back at you as complete garbage that isn't even qualified to be called literature. And in regards to the plot, just because my job is having to be critical of your work doesn't mean I'm not entitled to at least -enjoying- being critical of your work. So if your plot doesn't catch me, I won't betaread it.

When I betaread, I will go through your work with red, like an English teacher. I will point out misspellings, point out improper use or lack of punctuation, point out areas that need syntax fixes, and point out irrelevant material all while doing my best not to eliminate your voice from the story.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm a perfectionist. If something doesn't sound right, I will do what's necessary to smooth out the rough edges. And if you're like me, where you wouldn't want to compromise a character's personality or attitude for anything, we'd be the best of friends. I also have the necessary adequate grasp of English to at least be betareading your story in the first place.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I wish I had a multifarious vocabulary, but I don't. (That sentence was just a fluke.) I'm not the wittiest person you'll ever meet, in fact I'm far from it. So I hope you're not looking for wit in your story. And being a perfectionist is a double-edged sword; while I'll do my best to give you the best betaread, I won't be pleased with my betaread unless it is the best I can give.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I have more of a preference for action and adventure-filled stories. Don't give me stories that compromise or completely undo a character's natural temperament. (My only exception would be romance stories, because I'm a shipper too, but even then I have limits for how far I'll accept OOC-ness.)
I'm willing to take romance stories.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Gary Stu/Mary Sue OCs. Sorry to burst your bubble, but you do not exist in animeland nor are you fated to make sweet love with your 2D ink-and-color crush.
