Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
As a reader, I look for story lines that reel me in, characters that are fleshed out and read like real characters, and interesting dialogue. My style is checking if your grammar/spelling is correct and that your characters have a balance of good and bad traits while still feeling realistic. I aim fix choppy dialogue or descriptions and try to give ideas on how to improve both your plot and your writing in general. When I read, I want to feel immersed so I make sure that your characters feel real and speak realistically. I am open to almost all fics as long as they don't condone pedophilia, necrophilia, and other controversial topics such as those. Should you wish to be my beta but are unsure if I'll accept it, you need only to PM /

In a submitting author's work, I ask that your stories are spell-checked, grammar-checked and that you yourself have gone over it more than once for any errors that you may want to fix before giving it to me. After I have betaed a chapter, depending on whether or not we have spoken as I did so, you should go over anything I have done, ask me questions on why I did this or that, and make sure everything is the way you envisioned it. Before I start betaing your story, I would also like you to send me a copy of your first chapter. If the story interests me, I see potential, and I don't let out a scream of frustration every two sentences, then I will likely say "yes" to your request.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Fleshing out characters, aiding in plot lines, grammatical errors, interesting dialogue, descriptions, vocabulary, structure of a story
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
If it's a busy week, I tend not to be able to betaread at all but I check my email regularly so it's quite easy to reach me.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to read dramatic stories rather than humorous ones but I'll still give those a shot. I don't really have experience with Western fics and poetry is simply not my thing to beta. I'm also open to OC/Canon Characters.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Sci-Fi, cliché trope-like fics, quick romances that offer no substance, stories that have no grammatical structure, basic characterization, authors who have no idea where their plot is going. I can help flesh out ideas, aid in beginnings and endings, but I do not want to be the main writer when I am supposed to be a betareader.
