Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I realize that I may come across as harsh, so I apologize for that ahead of time. My writing style is not indicative of my abilities as a Beta, my account and fics are new but I assure you I've been around for a long time. I do Beta for my RL friends, so I have experience with things such as this. If you're considering me as a Beta for your story, please understand that I will point out/ask about any "issue" I see. If it will be explained later in the story tell me. Other than that, I'm open to most anything.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have fair experience with most genres and age groups, so don't let that bother /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm pretty decent with word choice and stylized grammar when the occasion calls for /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I do not mind writers sticking up for a certain scene they feel is perfect the way it is. It brings a smile to my face, actually. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I reread my work/suggestions before resubmitting it to the writer. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I've taken and completed multiple AP English courses, so editing/proofreading/analyzing is a hobby of mine, much to the dismay of some.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I do not always notice differences in American/British/Austrailian English due to reading fics from so many differing origins unless the writer asks me to check /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I HATE commas, but I do have resources that point out those /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Do NOT ask for smut scenes from me. I can read them and tell you what's wrong with them, how they flow and such, but the sad truth is: I am a teenage girl who reads enough porn-like fics to have extensive knowledge but cannot write one for saving her money. Editing yes, help writing /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I like to take my time and make sure that I'm doing the writer justice and doing my best to improve both them and the story.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer slash/yaoi, but most any pairing is /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Honestly I'd like to work on fics that I have experience with the fandom, but I'm too lazy at the moment to add all the things I'm familiar with, so message if you feel you might have something I could help with. What I'm not familiar with, I'm sure my wonderful friends (and the internet) are perfectly capable of filling me /

br /

br /br /

br /

If the fic has some being mentally broken and/or being fixed, I'm more than likely game. My motto is "Break, Fix, Rebreak" because I am an awful person deep inside.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I do not generally read OC centered fics. If you believe yours might make my exception list please feel free to message me. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

NO SHOTA, NO LOLLI. Is that clear? I understand some fandoms have underage characters, so aging up to fit a purpose is fine. More than fine, actuallybr /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

Do not EVEN ASK ABOUT TWILIGHT. Please, just...don't do /

br /

No kid's cartoons, please.
