Child of the Gypsies has left a vacation message:
HI! I may not be the BEST writer in the world(- I am young, and still have much to learn-) but I am happy to help in any way possible, whether you need criticism, a ego boost, or someone to go over the grammar. Truly, it isn't a bother, I enjoy being a Beta to someone.
Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
If you would like to have me as a beta, all you have to do is ask! Politeness goes a long way, of /

br /

I do the average editing: spelling & grammar. I'll also edit and reword sentences to make them flow better or to make more sense. Usually, if I'm not sure of the intended meaning of a sentence is, I'll bold it so you can go back and fix it if I messed it up. At the end or the beginning of the reply- depending on whether or not you asked me a question or the likes when sending me the piece to be edited- I will point out the areas reworded, make suggestions, and give a status report on grammar and spelling. Under that I will occasionally add a review as if I were a normal /

I try to get the edits back to the author within a few days of receiving the story/chapter, but that of course doesn't always work out. If you have a specific deadline(say you ALWAYS update every other Friday or something), I promise to work as hard as I possible can to get it to you on time.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm great at grammar, and when I give criticism, I am usually fairly gentle. I don't do the whole flaming thing. Its just plain rude. I am also good at finding inconsistencies. I tend to ask a lot of questions if I don't get something and I think it may be an accident of lack of clarification, so if it is a plot device, just know I'm trying to help.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If your writing skills are already pretty good, but you wish to improve even more, you may want to choose a beta who has a bit more experience in writing themselves. I'm no professional, but I do my best.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Random, funny fics, romances, angst, horror, and comfort fics. Oh, and stories that are part of that "universe", but not solely about the main characters. (The only examples I have are of those TMNT ones where the person gets abducted by the Triceratrons. I have only found two, but they where both really cool!) I also have a thing for dark romances. You know, bad guy/girl falls for bad /

Hetalia authors: I LOVE historical fanfictions, or anything set during or before the World Wars.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Please, no homosexuality and incest. I'm not homophobic, but I'm not really comfortable reading that. And I'm not into the whole explicit sexual stuff. T rated at most, please, though I may make an exception depending on what its being rated M for. Keep it tame, people. Excessive swearing is annoying as well.
