Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a writer I do more one-shots, but as a beta reader I'm down with everything. If all my medical field dreams crash and burn I want to be an editor, so this is pretty great practice. I greatly enjoy helping people and beta reading is a fun way to help out. br /br /br /br /

How I'd beta is I'll have two copies of the work. One copy is showing all the corrections I want to make and the reasons why, and the second copy is the work after changes are made. I think writing style is very important to keep so all edits won't be very drastic, and is the reason for copy one. If an author wants me to beta a certain way or has any concerns tell me so I can keep an eye out for it.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm naturally a pretty big grammar nazi, but at the same time if something is extremely jumbled I can still comprehend it. br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm also very good at noticing if English is the second language therefor making it easier for me to fix such issues and make the authors work more authentic to my native language. br /br /br /br /

I'm a pretty nice person so I wont tear the author down as I critique them. I think the main thing is for them to be able to write and feel loved, not feel useless and like they suck. br /br /br /br /

I'm very good at catching sentence fluency errors and thus makes me pretty good at poetry. br /br /br /br /

I have all normal skills needed but the ones I listed above are just my specialties.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may accidentally mess up the spelling of words. This doesn't mean the word isn't spelled right, but more it turns into the wrong word. I am very efficient with a dictionary so this wont be that big of an issue. As in it balances out in the end. br /br /br /br /

br /

br /br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

br /br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

I'm also not very good at semicolon, colon, parenthesis, and sometimes comma usage. If they are really meant to be there though I'll make sure it's in there correctly. br /br /br /br /

I might also miss fragments, but personally I think fragments aren't that big of a deal. Run on sentences I'll more than likely catch, but fragments are iffy for me. If you pick up a nobel winner book, you'll more than likely find a fragment sentence within every chapter. The key is though it has to go with the flow. Be a hippie. br /br /br /br /

I'm sure there are more issues with me since well sadly I am human, but these are what I can think of. Sorry the list for my weaknesses is so long, but it's easier to find the faults in my work because there is a level of standards that come with the job.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I like very well written stories, but it's sort of my job to help you get there. I'm not too picky but if you are in my ship I already love /br /br /br /

Project K, well honestly I ship everything over there, it is Project Gay so they're asking for it. I think my favorite ship though is Bandou/Shouhei, or maybe Himori/Saruhiko. I ship literally everything common over there. If you get kinky with it and go Munakata/Eric well I'm sure I can find a way, but Eric is Fujishima's to me at least. Wait no I have one, I personally think Seri/Mikoto can't happen because Mikoto wouldn't take his best mans girl. At the same time though I'm down with Mikoto/Izumo so. . . Girls make things complicated. br /br /br /br /

Tsuritama, I honestly will support main ships except crazy things like Haru/Natuski or Yuki/Akira, so basically 1:Natsuki/Yuki [OTP for me] 2: Akira/Haru 3: Natsuki/Akira [strangely a PWP couple] 4: Haru/Yuki anything containing Haru is a bit iffy and very fluffy [ignore my PWP of Yuki/Haru that was a fill!]br /br /br /br /

OMG if you write crack come to me. I love that stuff. Also if your like a really scary SaruMi gal I can handle it, it's fine. I was looking for a beta and everyone was sort of weary of non-con but I think at a certain level at which I am not debating your mental health it's fine. The point I'll break is enough anything people send probably wont be enough to hit /br /br /br /

And obviously I am a yoai slasher because not one of those couples are strait.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
It only looks long but I'm a pretty whatever goes sort of person. br /br /

br /

br /br /

br /

If there is intense burning in your story dear God go to a f****** mental hospital and do not send me it. I seriously can't stand the thought of people getting burnt. If it's a petty burn or of one sentence it's fine, but if you are doing so BDSM with it do not expect me to enjoy beta reading that. br /br /br /br /

No rapping, abusing and really anything sexual with children. There is a point of too much. If the main character had something like that happen to them in their childhood . . . it really depends on the intention of the author. If it's meant to break readers I'm okay with it, but if it's mean to turn on the readers I really don't want to take part in that. I mean children as in age 12 and under. br /br /

JERKY AUTHORS. If you are not respectful I will slow down work efforts to a point you wont want me. I will not outright say "hey yo I do a lot of work here too, please be a bit nicer" I will simply slow down. If really the author ticks me off I'll slow down. I also expect the author to inform the readers of their fic said fic was beta read by me. It's pretty hard to irritate me though as an author, but if I'm beta reading for you and you do constantly the speed I beta will go down. br /br /br /br /

Really any story plot can go, but it's how the author acts that will make me not want to beta read a story. The 24 hour rule (send it to me at least 24 hours before you need it), thank you to me in authors's note, and general friendly behavior. I do expect however for the author to go over story for themselves at least once, and please do not half write something, expecting me to write it for you. I have never seen someone send an absolutely horrid fic that needs so much work the beta reader is practically writing it, but if you try I will beta it and then post it on my profile with slight credit to the person who sent me the "story". (I have NO intention of stealing idea's though! I get my own plot bunnies.)
