|Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm really into Fullmetal Alchemist, so that's the way to my heart! I'm generally free, so I'll definitely have time to beta unless I'm swamped with homework. Don't expect me to finish my beta too soon after I get it, I like to look things over a lot. I'll probably write in Italic or Bold after parts I think are missing something or need to be changed a bit. I'm not going to butcher your fanfictions! There's no judgement on how good you can write, and I'll always keep an open mind to your style of writing. We're not all the same! I do expect you to keep decency in writing (So no M rated Fics) I'd also like for you to respect the works that you're writing for, and try to keep accurate personalities of the characters you're writing for.
|My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm good at spotting typical spelling issues like the your and you're problem, as well as their there and they're problem. I'm also good at identifying plot holes, and good/bad character development.
|My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Minor grammar issues really, though I do have grammar check on my Mac (I've never used it before though). I'm not too good at finding 'out of character' problems, unless it's significant.
|Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I particularly like depressing stories because I find that it's the genre that really gets me into the story, but I very much enjoy adventure, family, and romance stories also.
|Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I would like to avoid yaoi and yuri, except if it's Twincest from Ouran Highschool Host Club. I don't like M rated fics. Also, your story should at least make sense, or else I'll be too confused to betaread. I'd like you to stay in character if you can, and I won't accept it if someone is WAY out of character, but minor things are okay mostly.
