Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'm an 18 year old Dane, currently undergoing the International Baccalaureate program for no good reason. English is my second language, however through countless hours on the internet and reading literature, (as well as Fanfiction), I've come to understand the English language to the point of not being terrible at it. The reason I want to beta-read is because I want to actively help people, as I've seen several cases where the story would theoretically be able to carry the fic, however the presentation, as in the language and grammar, is not adequate, I feel like it's a shame and a waste which I should be able to rectify. Either way, I'm new to beta-reading, however that should not lessen my commenting efficiency.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I'm fairly well traversed within the English language, enough to know what is mostly right and wrong. I'm excellent at spelling as well as coherency, and my grammar is good as well, though not stellar. I'm good at pointing out flaws, as well as plot holes, and also OOC'ness.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm horrible at giving compliments. When I critique something I find the flaws and just silently acknowledge the good sides, so do not expect me to give praise at any given time. Of course there may be the occasional time where it might happen, either way. As I mentioned, I'm not 100% sure about my grammar at times, however in general it's quite consistent. Also, I'm (presumably) inherently terrible at love, so I won't be of much help there.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Serious fanfics is what I like the best. Basically anything that is not specifically stated in the section just /

I'm also fine with most different categories of fanfics, however due note that I don't have an intimate knowledge of 'most different categories' (categories being the actual subject of the fanfiction), however in terms of grammar and things alike, it should be fine regardless.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Okay, this'll be a lengthy /

Any Yaoi is out of the question. Yuri is out as well while we are at it. I'm sorry, but any story that has either of the two are obviously not taking themselves seriously. Of course there is the odd exception, but com'on, we both know that it's normally not the /

I don't do love. Well, not love fanfics that are just there for the pairings. I utterly despise the concept of having it just to satisfy the needs that the real version wasn't able to. If the love element is incorporated in a REASONABLE way, then I have no issue with it, what so ever. (That would basically cut out most of the, "Hello, my name is X and I just transferred to highschool Y where I have my fated encounter with Z, though W is disrupting us, because he loves Z but then Y finds out he loves W, and while all this is going on, Z is actually a vampire engaged to the principal of Y (You get the point, right? Unnecessary drama, no thank you.))br /

One-shots or short stories. That being somewhere below 10-15000 words inbr /

Stories that simply don't make any sense. Making changes that are completely unjustified, and if so they are either heavily breaking a characters normal behavior or just putting said characters in extreme situations
