Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Howdy, I go by pseudo-persona here. I guess I should start by saying that I am a major reader and am currently working to meet my status of 3,000 stories read on this site alone. I have been reading for as long as I can remember and I believe that the exposure to so many writing styles has helped me develop my own.

Currently, I am taking writing and literature classes to help me with my grammar and story-telling

I will read just about anything to completion, whether I like it or not, and I take possible anime/movie/comic/etc... suggestions to further my range of knowledge and fandoms. Along with that, I usually go through stories very quickly, stopping everything else to finish them, so I should be able to respond in a timely manner.

I really look forward to reading your stories and I wish you luck with your writing.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
For the areas I know, I tend to go into extreme research to learn all I can about them so I should be able to accurately describe and fix any character issues.

I can usually spot many spelling and simple grammatical mistakes and I tend to rethink certain scenes or events in stories I've read to make a much more impressionable or heartfelt moment.

My strongest skill would probably be my descriptions, whether character, location, or plot I tend to try to convey as much meaning as I can to readers. Sometimes I might meander away from the main point but I feel that this is where I do my best work.

Lemons/limes or any smutty writing tends to be a strong suit of mine because I will over-analyze to try and make interesting or will even come up with a back story to make the event plausible. That said, I ask that you at least put thought and effort into a pairing because I tend to not work well with something made with little effort.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Punctuation and sentence structure would have to be my weakest abilities. I tend to over think placement of punctuation such that my sentences all seem complex, compound or run-on without my noticing.

Fight scenes would also be another weakness since I rely so strongly on descriptions I tend to slow down what should normally be fast-paced scenes and just make them average or lacking in their appeal.

I am not bilingual and there is only so far that translators will go before mistakes are made so I suggest that you do not look to me for help with translations or use of additional languages in your writings.

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Any pairings from just about anything I've seen or read are fine with me. Het, fluff and yuri are accepted. Slight yaoi, meaning fluff or humorous situations may be accepted depending upon the situation and characters involved.

I tend to lean towards horror and tragedy currently but I can also help with adventure, action, fluff and just about anything else, so long as I can get into the right mindset.

I only ask that you put effort into your writing and take the time to think through what is happening and to go over it to fix any major mistakes. As long as you feel it is an acceptable form of what you want your finished work to show, I will gladly accept it to go over it.

One-shots and multiple-chapter stories are fine but please let me know if there will be more to come and allow me an appropriate avenue of time to work on beta-reading what I may have from you or other authors. So long as you give me time to read it or a requirement for when you need it returned by, I will try to provide excellent service.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Stories for any story-verse I may be unfamiliar with. Please message me if you are curious as to what I may know and I do accept recommendations.

Please have some intelligence and overall thought go into the making of your story. If it is completely filled with utter nonsense and I must correct more than half, I will let you know and I will decline to read further.
