Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I like to read others' stories and will offer help in grammar or simply if you need someone's opinion before you post your story. I understand how sometimes writers will doubt their writings, and I'm here to simply help boost confidence and help the writer with the best of my abilities. Also, Once I commit to something, I will do everything to see it through. If I am not familiar with something I don't mind looking things up especially when it comes to history and Hetalia.

If you're looking for experience, I have been beta-reading for over five years (close to six). I've done one-shot series, and long chapter ones. Also I've been writing myself for quite some time as I have a lot of writing accounts on this website and others. Needless to say, I am no stranger when it comes the writing process. I understand it varies from writer to writer, but I hope I can help in whatever writing process you might have.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good with coming up with ideas. If you're in a writer's block and need help to get over it, I can help. I am also a stickler when it comes to characterization. I understand people have differing opinions and headcanons, but if I feel like you're going too far into OOC territory, I will not be afraid to say so.

I can also help with diction, brevity, and fluidity. If you're a writer that likes to wax a lot of poetics into your writing, that's fine. But you must be prepared for me to call you out if something does not make sense.

I've also beta-read many M rated pieces, so I'm very comfortable with giving some input when editing that too.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I know I probably have some problems, but I've never had a writer complain about me before. Nonetheless, if I had to list something, I guess sometimes I can make a lot of suggestions in terms of rephrasing something. I don't change, or insert any full sentences in another's work. I try to keep the story all their own with minor adjustments. That being said, if you don't want suggestions, just tell me, and I can not include them/cut back and just focus on grammar. However, just know that because I've been editing and writing for many years, I have come to form some strong opinions. You do not have to agree with them, but you must respect them as I will respect yours.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll read mostly anything, but romantic comedies are most preferred, or cute friendship and family bonding. I will do drama as well, though note that if you're writing a dramatic piece, I will be more critical of those than I am of happy-go-lucky pieces. If anything, I'd say I'm most critical when it comes to editing dramatic pieces.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a big fan of student/teacher relationships. Even when it's at the college level it can still rub me the wrong way, so I try to stay away from them. Also, I don't much care for any type of abusive relationship unless it's about the main character getting away from one. I don't believe abuse should be romanticized, and therefore I won't read it.
