Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy reading and I enjoy helping, so I definitely enjoy betareading. I prefer leaving comments all over the place, but let me know if you don't like that. I won't be brutal with my commenting, but I will be honest and direct.

I'm an insomniac, working irregular shifts and at weird times. This means I sometimes return your update to you within the hour, next time it might take me 48hrs... And that's without taking time differences into account.

When sending a request, please tell me the basics (one shot vs multi chapter, genre, characters, couples, etc.) of your story and give me a summary of the plot.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I detect lose ends in plots and I look at the details, flow of the story, etc.; anything that has to do with the readability of your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Definitely punctuation. Also, English isn't my native language so I might not notice every single grammar or spelling mistake. However, when they're/there/their is used incorrectly, trust me to notice as well as other mistakes alike. I don't spot every single typo.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'm a sucker for happy endings. Usually, I prefer canon couples over any other character couples.

Please check my beta preferences below for fandoms and genres I like, it's always easier to beta for those.

Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I'm not a big fan of extremely gruesome, horror kind of stuff. Too much angst is a no-no, as well. When does angst turn into too much angst? I don't know, it's a fine line I suppose :-)
