Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
hello! my name is allison c: as far as beta reading, i suppose you could say i pay close attention to detail--how words are used, how sentences are structured, and especially characterization. i can help make your story interesting as far as the use of words are used, and maybe jazz it up a bit. i also pay close attention to plot...a cliche plot is boring, but any cliche plot can be done up with the use of a twist. i'm creative in that respect, so if you needed help with that, i'd definitely love to c:

as far as expectations go, i think the only thing i require is that i'm not starting from square one, heh. in the roleplaying world, they call the level of writers i expect "literate" (which i think is a bit silly). basically all i ask is that you at least try with grammar and spelling, as well as have some depth to your characters. also! i would love specifics. do you want me to look at characterization? or would you prefer i just do grammar checks? anything and all, just please, let me know c:

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
like i said, i am very creative when it comes to situations and plot ideas. i can normally think of a very good flow, to make sure all the action doesn't happen all at once, and before you know it, your story is over D: ! i suppose i'm also good at "juicing" up a story, by putting in more ideas for actions or things like that.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
i suppose my weaknesses would probably have to do with over-criticizing. i can be a little nit-picky, lol. maybe my opinion wouldn't be welcome with some things, but then again, you don't (and probably shouldn't) take everything i say and change it immediately c: it is ultimately your choice and your choice only.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
i love dramatic stories. the more dramatic, the better. well, as long as it's not telenovela-worthy, ha. i love a story with a nice twist, and maybe some pulling away of the specific media's plot (for example, in Harry Potter, i have never been against Draco/Ginny, lmao). i also live for comedy in my stories, but not parodies or things that aren't technically fan-fiction. yeah?
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
romance. i'm just not too into them. if you gave one for me to look over for grammar or spelling, fine, but i normally don't go into romance with my plots.
