So, a little bit about me-a junior in AP English with a strong average, Print Editor for our school newspaper and reporter for the political newspaper. So yes, I do know how to write.
I think that the point of Beta-reading is to help you become a better writer, so if you have a plot stuck in your head, and you don't know exactly where to go with it, I can also help you on that. Also, when you do send me a story, I'd like to know a little bit about how you view the characters, otherwise I'll have the tendency in to mold them into the people that I'm thinking of, particularly the characters that I have a very strong affinity with.
As for pairings, I do everything-however, if it's a lemon, I'll just skip over that, so sorry.
As for grammar and spelling-I'll admit, I'm only decent at that, though I refuse to edit stories that have chat-speak, or bad grammar-if I think that you didn't try on the story, I won't beta-read it.
I am the type of person who'll tell it to you like it is-if you're looking for someone who'll be nice while telling it, I'm not that person. I won't be absolutely cruel, but if I see an OC, a plot, or something that sounds weak, I'll waste no time in telling you.
So, after I've finished scaring you, I guess I can say that I am actually a pretty easy-going person-if I Beta a piece, I'll do my very best job on it, so I'll expect you to turn in something decently good too. I'd prefer to work with pieces that are mediocre to above in quality, but if it's a plot or something I find worthwhile, I would love to edit your piece. I edit very quickly, so you won't have to wait too long.
