Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
When I beta, plot is the most important thing, closely followed by grammar and your story's flow. Of course, in characterness, Mary Sues, and the like are also all put to my attention. I can help with accuracy to canon, though my knowledge fluctuates greatly with each fandom. (see list below)

The main thing I will look at is not your grammar and typos, but the actual writing. Does that sentence flow, is there a better way to phrase this, would they really do that? I will nitpick every single thing that I

I will not sugar coat any problems. If I think something is bad, I will tell you. I do not mind ships, and I will beta any genre. I will only do stories that are in a fandom that I know and enjoy (read very bottom for exceptions), as I do most of my work within the plot. I enjoy both AU's and OC's, along with canon divergence and other variations!

If you want me as your beta, PM me with a description of the story, as well as anything that you think would help me as a beta, and the things that you need to improve on. If your story is something that is not my cup of tea, but you still want me to beta it, we can talk it over through PM. I can be flexible. I miss emails a lot notifying me of messages! If I don't reply after 3 days, message me again! Or hit me up on tumblr!

Fandom knowledge (For specifics, PM me)

Experience with fanfiction:

Very knowledgeable: Hunter x Hunter (Manga and 2011), Naruto (OG and Shippuden), Pokemon (mostly video games, some anime, clueless about manga)

Knowledgeable and up to date with source: Soul Eater (Soul Eater leans more towards MakaxSoul ship as far as knowledge goes; anime and manga), Fullmetal Alchemist and Brotherhood (anime only), Ouran Highschool Host Club, Akatsuki no Yona

Knowledgeable but fell out of reading and need to get around to reading again: Shingeki no Kyojin, Tokyo Ghoul, Kuroshitsuji, Ao no Exorcist

Knowledgeable but not complete (and most likely not finishing): Kuroko no Basuke

I know the series and have read fics, but I'm not really an expert (mixed bag of knowledge): Zelda, Dengeki Daisy (Not complete, can be if needed), Durarara (anime only; none of the recent seasons)

Little/No Fanfiction experience but I know the series from casually watching it (completion of series varies):

Anime: Psyho-pass

Books: Harry Potter, Percy Jackson (only up to House of Hades), Maximum Ride

Games: The Legend of Zelda

Cartoons: Teen Titans, Danny Phantom, Code Lyoko

I know many other fandoms, though my knowledge may be lacking. Again, PM me if you have any questions or if you want to know story preferences.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am best at helping to come up with a plot or a specific scene if you need something like that. I also excel at making a story flow, where each sentence moves smoothly into the other. I can be of help with OOC, though I may be biased towards a specific personality if I'm so.

I can also help in the creation of an OC and making sure that they are still balanced while being able to hold their own in the plot.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm picky with the stories I read. I will not sugar coat my thoughts on the story, but I will still stay respectful to it. I may turn down a story if I don't like a type of story, as my editing quality is heavily dependent on how much I like the story. Don't be discouraged, it's just that your story isn't my cup of tea.

Dialogue will sometimes get me, as I will get caught up in the story and miss the lack of a period or comma. I also can sometimes spend too much time on the details instead of the larger picture. If you ever want a plot idea from me, expect a wall of text with me rattling on about one idea before switching to another.

My life is also pretty busy so there may be periods of slow turnaround

Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer action or a good OC if your story is that type. Humor also has a soft spot in my heart. Romance is very hit or miss with me depending on the ship. I like creative twists in stories like odd settings or crazy plot twists. Weave your own story with your writing. PM for specifics in a fandom. I also would prefer if you asked me to beta in the early stages of your story so that I don't have to read 100k words before I beta, however this is also flexible.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I usually don't like high school AU's (college AU's tend to be significantly more interesting). I'll read stories with any type of ship though if that's a main plot point, I might not be a knowledgeable source. No mpreg or ABO. I don't mind explicit stuff, but I would prefer nothing extremely kinky.
