Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Alright, I write my stories in both a very straight forward manner and a flowy manner. I usually write from a 3rd person POV with access to the main character's(of that chapter) thoughts, feelings and emotions. I'm pretty into tragedy and angst/despair, but every once in awhile I'll write something amusing, cute or romantic. This being said, I have no issue beta-reading for a story that is not tragic/angsty, and I have no issue editing for happy/romantic or cute stories. But as you will notice below in the "Not My Cup of Tea" section: I do not play with anything in the Twilight/teeny-bop sappy cliched and poorly written out romance category when it comes to fan-fiction. Original stories? Maybe, but only if the story is meant to have some deeper meaning or more of a substantial plot than "girl meets boy, they think each other are hot, they date, have sex and get married". Of course, if your story is one of those stories and you want help in making it better? Of course I will try my damnedest to help you out. I find stories that leave out character development, rather intentional or unintentional, to be rather distasteful as well, as I will constantly find myself getting annoyed with the actual story itself. Again, if you come to me asking for help with this issue, I will help you try to work on it. I expect requesters to have at least a high-school reading level; to be understanding with my hiatuses and what not; to understand that in my life, writing is not my very first priority, and when I do, I prioritise my stories first; to understand that I am a senior in highschool; to not try to pry into my personal life when we talk outside of . You are an associate, an acquaintance to me, and until we've gotten to know each other well enough. I expect requesters to not assume that I am your best friend. Just because I am your beta does not make us best friends. I expect requesters to not assume that I will coddle/baby them, I will tell you the blunt and honest truth because that's just how I am; to know that I am not going to change my way of speech or my personality for you.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm very good with plot and character continuity and I'm a stickler for grammar. Though, I let characters have plenty of grammatical freedom during dialog sequences of course. I listen to what you want for the story and I will suggest edits and ideas based on that. I'm a very flexible person when it comes to writing styles, and I'm not going to force you to write in MY own style. I also will not attempt to push you with plot related issues if you have not asked for help in that area.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Sometimes I get aggravated over things, or I'll not be in the mood to read over and edit stories, though these are rare. Due to school, sometimes I might not have enough time to sit down and write or look over a chapter every day, though as a beta-reader, I would make sure to inform you of this. Personality wise, I like to think of myself as blunt and honest but not rude or impolite; some people can misconstrue this over text/the internet though.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
TESV: Skyrim, Assassin's Creed[I-III], Mass Effect[I-III], Homestuck, G Gundam, The Inheritance Cycle(Eragon Series), Originals, Poetry, Death Note, Elfin Lied, Naruto, Akame ga Kill, Mirai Nikki, ect,. If you want to see if I'll beta-read for a certain fandom, simply ask and I will be more than happy to respond.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Oh, were do I start at? I do not play with anything in the Twilight/teeny-bop sappy cliched and poorly written out romance category when it comes to fan-fiction. Original stories? Maybe, but only if the story is meant to have some deeper meaning or more of a substantial plot than "girl meets boy, they think each other is hot, they date, have sex and get married". Of course, if your story is one of those stories and you want help in making it better? Of course I will try my damnedest to help you out. I find stories that leave out character development, rather intentional or unintentional, to be rather distasteful as well as I will constantly find myself getting annoyed with the actual story itself.
