Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
So, you are here because you are in need of a betareader. Well, don't worry, I can help you with that! I can do the simple grammar/punctuation run-through of your story, and I can also give you advice on how characters should and should not act like, how well a story flows, and the word usage and mechanics. When sending me a story, I can either use FanFiction's DocX, and I can also use the Google DocX.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I can easily find grammar and punctuation mistakes in stories. Depending on the fandom, an example being Harry Potter, I can, by experience and from constructive criticism from others, I can write Harry Potter characters very well, so I can easily tell you and show you how a character would act like. I also love dialogue, and am very good at writing it. By experience, I work well with both third-person and first-person viewpoints. I also like to read/write gory and horror stories.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I've noticed in my own stories that I have some trouble describing a few complex action sequences. That being said, I really am not sure if that will negatively affect my betareading, but I just wanted you to know that for any reason. I'm not used to poetry and I don't think I will anytime soon. And I'm not exactly the most funniest person in the world, so I don't really like writing or sometimes reading humor and parody stories, but I will still betaread those kinds of literature.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am fond of the angst and emotion-driven stories - I love those because it's interesting to see how writers think one character inner and true feelings are. If you are here for a Harry Potter fic, then I can tell you that I don't really care what pairings you have in your story, as long as the characters are portrayed correctly. Fred x Hermione? Of course I'll read that one! Dean x Ginny? Sure, why not? Additionally for Harry Potter, my favorite kinds of fics are normal, school-based plots, ranging from relationship drama to struggling to finish an essay. The main plot in the books are fine with me, but the what the students do at Hogwarts between the advancements of the story are always interesting.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Lemons/sex stories. Before you say "Hey, but your profile says you want to betaread stories with the rating of M!" Yes, I know it says that. It's there because of the things usually rated M, like an excessive use of profane language and...well, I can't think of anything else at the moment...There is also one kind of pairing I do not like: Snape x Any young girl/boy. I'm glad you find entertainment through writing, but that is not something I enjoy reading.
