Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hello! SillyItalians here! As some of you may know, I am the author of Dark Days. Now, I will also serve as a beta-reader, to help stories become better. I generally note errors as I read, then sum them up at the end of the story. If you want me to, I can critique the chapters of your stories, though I mostly critique the first one. Also, the types of stories that I read generally focus around Hetalia and Harry Potter. I am very critical about grammar, so you can expect me to point out many grammtical errors your story may have.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good at pointing out grammatical errors, and I will do so. Also, I can help improve upon how you portray a character, and how your own OC is portrayed. I can tell you if it's a Mary Sue/ Gary stu, or an anti-Sue (anti-Sues are characterized by being the complete opposite of perfect, like being hated by everyone for no rational reason or being emo because she/he squished a bug).
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Some people have said that I don't portray Germany correctly, so I'm not exactly sure if I can critique a Germany story correctly or not. Also, I am unfamiliar with Britannic terms (like "dinner suit" over "tuxedo") and some spellings, so you might want to point those out or put them in a different format. Also, make sure to (please) italicize foreign phrases, as I do not know every language (though I want to).
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I read stories mostly for the Hetalia and Harry Potter fandom. I read all genres, as long as it isn't severe romance (aka, lemons, limes, yaoi, yuri, things like that). I am okay with some romance, through I prefer not to read it; it just doesn't sit well with me. The categories I read are for movies, anime, and books. I read stories of all ratings, from K to T, though you need to inform me if there is anything innapropriate in the story. Since I really only know English, I only critique for English stories. Sorry.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
As said before, I don't like reading yaoi/yuri fanfics, along with lemons. Stories outside of the Hetalia and Harry Potter fandom are critiqued only for grammar and OC. I am not a Death Note fan, so I wouldn't be able to critique your L or Light portrayal. Extreme gore/violence stories will not be critiqued by me. I don't want to be horrified and not be able to sleep at night.
