Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
My biggest goal as a beta-reader is just to offer some friendly constructive criticism. I've studied film, theater, and writing for several years now, so when I look at a fanfic, my main focus is going to be on character and plot development - how smoothly the narrative flows, and how much the events taking place make sense in the general scheme of things. I'm here to support you. If you aren't sure about the direction you want your story to take, or if you just want grammar and spelling checked, or even if you just want a second opinion on something, I'm your beta.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Like I mentioned above, character and plot development are both strong points of mine, and grammar and spelling have always come very naturally to me. Sentence structure and word choice are also two things that I pay attention to in a fanfic, but I know that can sometimes seem like nitpicking, so if you'd prefer for me to only focus on certain elements of your story, just let me know.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
When I give constructive criticism, I can sometimes go overboard. I tend to very opinionated on things, so if you ever feel like I'm going too far and trying to tell you how to write, please stop me. I'm also very sentimental, which will show in the feedback I give.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Romance stories are my preference, but I'll take a good adventure or drama as well. Anything Disney, a lot of musicals, and most major film and book franchises (example: Harry Potter, Marvel, etc.). Period dramas are also always great.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Anime and manga are pretty far out of my knowledge zone. I typically won't do lemon either, though that depends on the circumstances.
