Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
-finally I've applied as a beta-reader!-

Anywho, as a beta-reader, I could be a complete bitch with works that are full of grammatical errors, that's true. And I would expect less nagging while I'm editing, because i might be editing more than one fic at a time. And I am a tad slow editor. I reread and reread anything I receive before sending it back. I care so much for all the fics I edit ~

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
People here and in real life say that I have good grammar with my writing. Though that comes from a lot of time looking over my works, and my English teacher haunting my dreams at night. ^^""

I would be blunt when I see something that should not be there, or if it lacks something that is needed to be there.

I could blatantly say when the character is being OOC(even for crack fics), especially when I edit something within my fandom(s).

And I would only edit plot when it's necessary. Generally, I would hunt down any little mistake that could make the fic confusing.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am a bit weak on making my point on stories. And as pointed earlier, I take time in reading and rereading anything that I edit. So I hope that you would be patient with me.

Also, my grammar could also be my weakness sometimes. I might go edit something then later on realize that it's perfectly fine the way it was before; thus deeming 'rereading' useful.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta long/short one-shots, as they tend to have a more solid and concrete plot/theme/characterization.

Check my preferences to see if I would be suited to edit your stories. And visit my profile for the list of series that I'm familiar with

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Not my cup of tea yet my slice of (cheap)cake: multichapter fics. I wouldn't mind beta-ing multichapter fics, as long as I can see the basic gist of your chapters.

I also don't like oneshots involving an overrated character death. And OC's that are potential Mary-Sues. I'm part of the Anti-Sue/Stu Mafia.
