Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I don't have any expectations for anyone who wants my service. I will read absolutely anything and give an honest opinion on it. When I betaread, I pay special attention to how sentences sound. I pay close attention to wording and what flows the smoothest.

I don't just change what you have, I am here to help you improve as a writer. So, when I betaread, I will tell you what needs to be changed, why, and some suggestions as to what it should be changed to. Since I specialize mostly in grammar, sentence structure, and wording, I will probably have you revise quite a few of your sentences. If this is the case, then I don't mind checking something over a second time, after you have corrected it the first time.

That being said, I will warn you that I am harsh when I criticize. However, I am just as ready to compliment you on what you did well, and tell you of your strengths. I believe that it is important to understand your strengths as well as your weaknesses.

I suppose my services would be ideal for people who don't speak English as a first language, or who struggle a lot with writing. Perhaps even someone who is new.

I'll read just about anything. Yaoi/gay (boyXboy), yuri/lesbian (girlXgirl), hentai (boyXgirl), incest, blood/gore, extreme sexual content, BSDM, extreme lemon, or various forms of polygamy (including threesomes). You will very rarely find something that bothers me.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths lie in grammar, sentence structure, wording, and overall story flow. However, I can also help to keep characters in character, and I can help to correct the places where they aren't quite acting themselves. I will always have a suggestion if I think something needs to be fixed.

Plot ideas are another area that I may be useful. If you're stuck, then PM me your outline and I can help to get you moving again.

Also, I have an intermediate knowledge of French. (That makes a difference for Hetalia stories.)

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Spelling errors. There is no way that I will catch them all, but I suppose that is what spell check is for.

Major plot content. For little things to get moving, I can help, but with turn-the-entire-story events, I'm afraid I can't help at all... Especially if the story in question is a mystery story. Mysteries elude me... (Excuse my pun)

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll take anything, but preferably nothing over 200,000 words. If something over 200,000 words is being published chapter by chapter and not all at once, I won't mind betareading. Keep in mind that these are JUST preferences.

My favorite stories to read are Yaoi or Yuri, but Hentai is fine also.

As for genre, I have a preference for deeper things. Philosophy, psychology, internal struggles, tragedy, bittersweet... Things that may not necessarily end happy. But I am perfectly fine with reading the 'and they all lived happily ever after' stories as well.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'd prefer to not have any bestiality, but I can deal with it with no problem
