β : fastpork is a registered beta reader and is currently accepting beta reading requests.
|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.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
i'm a college grad who 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, and part of a musical. i also have a hefty vocabulary that i know how to use /
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 /
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
like i said, i'm a blunt writer who prefers brevity and employs the usage of purple prose 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. if you don't want your story to have any sort of feel like that, don't 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 wellbr /
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 br /
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'll see what i can do about long chapters. otherwise, anything from 0-5k words per chapter is fine.
