Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a straight-to-the-point kind of beta who has no problem going through a piece of writing and tearing it to shreds if it needs work. I know what I'm doing in regards to grammar and spelling and all things editing-related, and I can turn even the choppiest fics into a linguistically pleasing story. I will be prompt in my editing and return completed edits within a timely manner, as well as provide ideas upon the author's request. I choose which stories to edit at my own discretion. I am a friendly person to work with, but I am blunt when it comes to beta-reading. The coldness of my profile is to scare off anyone who wants to waste my time. I'm good at what I do, and I have the right to invest my time in stories that I feel have potential.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am extremely proficient in grammatical corrections and fixing spelling mistakes, as well as rewriting sentences to flow more smoothly. I possess an expansive vocabulary and am able to contribute my mental thesaurus to spice up a story, if needed.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
My abilities lie more in the technical aspect of the writing. I rely on you, as the writer, to create a sustainable plot and dynamic characters. I focus on the writing itself and the mechanisms of it. It is your job to write the story, whereas I fine-tune it. I am willing to contribute ideas, if asked, but I prefer to focus on editing what's been written rather than writing the story for you.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Anime fanfics are preferred. I have no problem with smut scenes, and no problem with ships.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I have no specific qualms with any types of stories, but the stories I choose to edit must have some merit to them and possess what I feel is the potential for a good story. If that sounds too harsh, then I am not the beta for you. I will not spend my time on a fic that will fizzle out and die over time. I want to see something through to the end. I do not enjoy OCs or first-person POV fics, but that does not mean that I am completely against editing them.
