Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a thorough kind of person who appreciates proper grammar and spelling. I will point out mistakes that have been made and either correct them (in the case of spelling, for example) or suggest possible corrections (for things like sentence structure or phrasing). I don't seek to alter the meaning of a person's story in any way, only the overall quality of it when it comes to understanding. Too many errors detract from what are otherwise really well-written and interesting stories. I am glad to help out in any way, as having a second person looking over your work decreases the chances of simple mistakes appearing. I am also very willing to help with translations into English!
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
My strengths are with correcting spelling, grammar, and sentence structure. Oftentimes, what we write out makes perfect sense in our heads. When others read it, they may not see what you see. In order to bridge that gap between author and reader, I promise to fix any mistakes so that your vision is clear to everyone.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I may overstep boundaries at times. Do not feel offended if I suggest a totally new way to phrase something; I do not want to tell you how to write your story, I might just have a different idea! You are always welcome to ignore my suggestions, however, or even talk to me about them.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I am a person who loves romance. Shipping is a big part of fanficiton for me, and it is the main reason I read and write it. In fan works, it is possible to see everything you wish could happen in the source material. Therefore, yes, I do read mature fanfiction. I am open to reading almost any fandom, though I am partial to animation (especially Disney and or Pixar) and cartoons. Don't be afraid to send me a story from a fandom that is outside of the things listed on my profile. And don't be afraid to ask if I'll read what you've written- it will probably be a yes!
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Excessive gore and unnecessarily disgusting horror. Actually, most horror in general. I read fanfiction to have a good time, and not to be creeped out. I respect people who can write these things well, but I myself do not enjoy them. I am sort of sensitive, so I may struggle with too much angst or character deaths in stories. It is not that I am totally unwilling, I am just a little leery. If your stories end with certain pairings, I will not read them. Maybe that's shallow, but I would not be able to give you fair and unbiased help. Pairings I won't read for include: Elsa x Jack Frost ("Jelsa"), Hans x Elsa, and Hans x Anna.
