Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a beta-reader I may start off as lenient but if problems or errors persist then I'll be critical on that specific point. However I would be EXCEPTIONALLY critical from the start if the story starts off in a childish or immature way. What I mean by that is that if the story is all over the place or is too cookie cutter or just plain out childish and below amateur then I'll be on you from the start. I do not believe such stories are entertaining so if you have that kind of story then please be prepared for some criticism. I do not mean to nitpick or be overbearing and cruel I just believe that one has way more potential then to resort to cutesy and merry stories (and I ain't the only one).

I expect those who ask of me to betaread for them, to not be so touchy. I really mean well and only want your story to be amazing and successful. Also, I am putting time and effort to betareading so please be courteous enough to reread your story for TOO many silly mistakes because even a draft doesn't hold that many simple errors. And don't just expect me to be your cleaning lady for your fic because I'm not; I may be your mentor, your peer, your critic but not your maid.

In the end, I really wish to help beginners and those who are not so confident on their stories because I can relate to them. And since not many people have enough patience to betaread those who are newbies, I would like to be one of the few who hold your hand and slowly but surely let go and allow you to go on by yourself.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Spelling, sentence structure, ideas, and detail. I am all about that detail because it can really beef up a story and paint a better picture for the reader and if you need an idea or plot help for your story then I'll happily give you some of my thoughts and suggestions. Aside from that, I am also good with spell-check and fixing up some weird sentences.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
First-person stories since I side more with the third-person ones and often times I would mix up a first-person structure with a third-person one. Too much detail; like I said with my strengths, detail can really beef up a story but sometimes too much detail is unnecessary and I will go overboard at times.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Perhaps from stories that I am familiar with so I can understand the characters and settings however I'll be open to new ones as well so it isn't a real big deal. I also do have some couples I ship like Ulquihime and Sasusaku but I'm not too picky if it is another couple either. And I like OC stories so I'll happily betaread those as well.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Yaoi and Yuri are stories I will absolutely not betaread (Sorry); Incest are an absolute no-no as well. And stories that have Sakura and Sasuke (Naruto) or Ulquiorra and Orihime (Bleach) paired up with anyone else; just because Ulquihime and Sasusaku are OTPs that I can't bear to see or imagine with someone else (mega sorry).
