Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
i'm a good proofreader if you need a second pair of eyes to look over your story! i have a pretty concise, blunt, and sometimes rather colloquial writing style. i don't like flowery/purple prose. usually i finish beta-reading within a day or two of receiving a chapter. if you'd like me to annotate/explain why i change certain things around, i'd be happy to expand. i also tend to correct phonetic written accents.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i can help you with literally anything you need in terms of editing, as i've edited many stories from a number of fandoms in the past. i've written an entire novel, numerous short stories, articles, essays, research papers, scripts, plays, a screenplay, and part of a musical. i also have a hefty vocabulary that i know how to use well.

i'm very familiar with grammar rules and how things should flow in english. besides grammar/spelling, i can help you with characterization and plot points/arcs if you so wish.

i'm a college student and have taken plenty of college-level writing courses

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
like i said, i'm a blunt writer who employs the usage of purple prose quite sparingly. if you like flowery writing and paragraphs of description, i'm not your beta. i'll end up rewording your oodles of words into shorter, more efficient sentences. i'm also a playwright at heart; my style tends to be dialogue-heavy and full of action descriptions (e.g. he looked at her, went to the kitchen, did x, picked up y and glanced at it, said "blah blah," pulled at his collar, etc.). if you don't want your story to have any sort of feel like that, dont pick me because my guilty pleasure is snappy dialogue
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
something engaging, something different. if not different, then at least done well

on the other hand, trainwrecks. let me help your trainwreck!

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
slash/smut is fine; most kinks are all right with me. nothing weird like zoophilia, nothing fucking disgusting like loli

uhhh like i said earlier, REALLY LONG chapters are kind of a...no. one story i beta'd awhile back (the cerinian in me by pen vs sword, excellent starfox fic if that's your thing) had super long chapters that were a little tiring to edit up to my standards on a timely basis due to my having a life. i did it because the story was EXCELLENT. if you think you have a really great story to tell, i can see what i can do about long chapters. otherwise, anything from 0-5k words per chapter is fine.
