Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
(Sweet expletive, Fanfiction does not like formatting. Please PM me for the full process if this is not readable.)

I'm Kyrastri. I offer both reading and editing services, though availability may change. If there hasn't been a change in status in over a month, please PM me for availability, or contact me elsewise via means indicated on my profile.

As of 19/12/2015: EDITING: Available / READING (Commentary): Available / READING (Constructive Criticism): Available / READING (General): Available

FULL EDITING:

- Commentary section: General running comments throughout the work based on the actual content. Very opinionated, and can go off on tangents.

- ConCrit section: Constructive Criticism across the work based on errors and potential changes that have been suggested based on the context of the work.

- General section: General comments that summarise both opinion and any criticism done previously, with mention to previous chapters (if applicable)

READING:

- Follows the same process as EDITING, except this is done directly on the work, and Constructive Criticism will be exclusively focused on grammatical errors.

EXPECTATIONS: I expect the work to:

- have been proof-read several times with obvious errors corrected (General errors will be accepted since I don't expect a draft to be perfect, but this is no excuse to let a work become littered with errors. If it's unreadable, I will not beta it.)

- be in a format easily readable (email and DocX)

NOTE:

- Please note that my beta-reading style is very critical, and I will pick apart flaws that I notice. This does not mean that I have anything against you as a person or your story. Often, it's the exact opposite. I enjoy your work enough to have accepted beta-reading beyond the first chapter. I will always try to emphasise the elements I enjoyed in your story, though the point of beta-reading is not to shower you with praise. It's to pinpoint aspects that you can potentially improve on, even if those aspects are very trivial.

- I reserve the right to stop beta-reading or editing your work at any time. If possible, I will notify you if there's something going on in my life that impacts on my ability to beta-read or edit your work. If it's because I don't want to beta read your work, I will let you know.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I focus on most aspects of the story, as highlighted in my profile, though I dedicate a read exclusively to errors and the quality/pacing of descriptions.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm not a professional editor, nor are many people on this site. As a result, I will naturally make mistakes just as much as you, and anyone else does. Therefore, if you feel that some of my opinions and edits are not appropriate to the story you want to tell, feel free to dispute it in a responsible, respectable and mature manner. I can sometimes come across as if I'm attacking you. Please do not take this personally, as it's often just how I write constructive criticism. If you honestly believe that I'm attacking you, please let me know so we can sort it out. Unspoken words will always fall on deaf ears.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I honestly will read most stuff, as long as I find it engaging and/or entertaining. If I did have to play favourites, I will generally favour works within fandoms that I am more comfortable with. A simple question through PM will suffice; I watch anime often but I am prone to forgetting what I've seen.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I am willing to read most types of fiction, but I have a strict rule regarding Mary Sue/Gary Stu characters and Furry characters. I have nothing against the latter, I would just prefer these elements to be avoided in the works I beta. I have no guarantee that this bias would not affect any critques of your work if you do decide to submit works featuring these elements.

REGARDING FANDOMS:

- Pokemon: Game-verse characters only. I am not versed very well in anime-characterisations beyond season 1 and I do not follow the manga.
