Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am an undergrad college student that enjoys editing and writing as a stress-reliever. I value knowledge and accuracy, so I fact-check as well. I understand commas and semicolons fairly well, and I have a knack for fixing awkward wording. I have a fairly large vocabulary, especially for my age, if I do say so myself. I also tend to almost exclusively work from my phone, as my computer absolutely loathes me, and I have a short attention span. I will, however, use my computer if I am not confident in my ability to use my phone for some particular reason. br /

Also, please don't judge my abilities immediately from the fics on my profile; I wrote all of them about three years ago, and a good friend of mine recently joined the site and asked me to beta for her, which is why two of them register as more recent than 2012. I'm working on the revamp, my bad. I was rushed.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do well with general grammar, especially punctuation. I am skilled in the elusive art of commas, at least, that's what I've been told. I know semicolons well; I also have a fairly large vocabulary. To be crass, I am a knowledge whore. As for what that means to you, I will happily double check facts for you, even find sources if you so wish-though I am liable to take significantly longer if that is what you want me to do. Just pm me telling me so.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a very, very short attention span. I was diagnosed with severe ADD as a child, and despite medication and constant effort to control it on my part, it doesn't always work well. Therefore, my motivation tends to wander from one project to another with little to no warning. It's significantly easier when I have to answer to someone else, like here, but there still might be some long waiting periods. If it starts gets more ridiculous than understandable, please PM me, and I can probably get it to you by the end of the day. I'm serious, if at any point you feel the need to hurry me, please do. It's my attention span, I do not mean to be rude in any way.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer stories that focus on friendships or family ties, bit of angst and hurt/comfort here and there-not very fond of shippy-ness, but if it is not a focus, or in a oneshot, it can be really awesome. To tell you the truth, I'll read just about anything. Therefore, this section is going to be incredibly short, and the next section (Not My Cup Of Tea) is going to be fairly long, with some very specific examples.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
oI would rather not do crossovers that involve putting the characters into the AU of another universe. For example, putting the characters of Attack on Titan into the universe of The Lord of the Rings. Also, extreme AU's, more specifically the ones that lie in the realms of fantasy and sci-fi. Both of which I enjoy very much on their own, but when it's created as an AU for a fanfiction, it just seems strange to me. I will not beta explicit fics, nor anything involving violations of children, animals, etc. I can handle gore (with a few exceptions, listed below) but not the whole sexual thing. I just don't-just-no. If you want me to beta something involving any degree of bodily harm, from paper-cuts, infections, to mutilation, I WILL fact-check the crap out of it. If you choose to ignore my suggestions, I can't really do anything about it, but I would not recommend it. I do just so happen to know my stuff in that /

And no zombies or cannibalism. br /

Didn't hear me? Allow me to /

NO ZOMBIES OR /

br /

Those just upset me greatly, due to some very long stories I have no desire to delve into. Yeah. They upset me, not even exaggerating, triggers the gag reflex to no end. Nearly vomited in my high school English Literature class. I will not be happy with you.
