Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader, I aim to point out any grammatical errors in your stories. The sheer number of native English-speakers messing up basic grammar is just simply astonishing, and I've read stories that have plenty of potential, only to be turned off by, well, really bad grammar.br /

br /

If you'd like me to beta-read your stories, all I ask is that you proof-read them to the best of your ability first - I'm just here to catch whatever you might have missed.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm all about the basics - the proper use of grammar and punctuation can do wonders to a story, be it the strength behind a punch-line, or the creation of a gloomy atmosphere. I can also point out if you're telling, not showing.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
In terms of spelling, I tend to switch between American English and British English like no-one's business. As for the whole "show, don't tell" aspect of good story-telling, my own writing abilities are a bit rusty, so while I can tell if you're simply telling, I can't really help that much in showing you how to show a story.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
First priority will go to one-shots and anything that falls under the humor genre.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Nothing sexually-explicit. Sexual puns and adult humor are fine in my book, but nothing graphic. This applies to all requests, regardless of whether the romantic pairing in question is straight or LGBT.br /

br /

Another thing - while I will beta-read Nanoha stories that features NanoFate as the main pairing, I WILL NOT beta-read them if the author bashes Yuuno Scrya just for the sake of making him look bad and/or keeping the NanoFate pairing "pure". Read my author profile if you want to know why.br /

br /

Last, but not least, NO self-inserts, Sues, or Stus. I'm not here to gush over how great you think you would be if you were a character in a story.
