Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello, I'm the DarkSide. Yup, bet you didn't know I existed did you? Any who, I have a knack for picking up grammar and spelling mistakes. I also know how to push a story in the right direction. I do expect for any stories I beta to be updated on a regular basis (which I myself am horrible at doing XD) , and I can review chapters/stories within a day of them being sent. So hopefully I'm the right person to get the job done!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
It's almost irritating how well I can pick up mistakes, it makes stories hard for me to read sometimes. Grammar mistakes are a pet peeve of mine, and if I read a sentence that is set up wrong, I correct it in my head immediately. Spelling is another strength of mine, and my vocabulary is very large. As a bonus, I am very good at making things fit together well.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sentence complexity is a weakness of mine. Mostly I do compound or simple sentences, because any more than that I feel paranoid that it is a run-on. I lose interest in my own stories quickly, but I urge other people to keep going with theirs. I am also a straight to the point person, and I do not have too much patience.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am okay with all kinds of stories, even smut, yaoi, yuri, anything really.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am not very good with especially angst-y stories, but I can do them. I also get really confused with creature fics, so I would prefer not to do them.
