Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I only take requests for RWBY or Bleach fanfictions, although no smut, Yaoi or lemon-oriented fics unless those are just small interjections into the story. I can give a healthy amount of criticism, and if I can't then I can safely say there is either not enough for me to critique, or it lacks many things to critique in the first place.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I like to believe my strengths lay in plot development and planning, such as leaving little hints early on and for the reader to wonder what it will amount to. I usually have the whole story plot fully prepared prior to even beginning a story. I also have a heavy focus on long chapters, usually anywhere between 5K-10K, the latter more common. Grammar and punctuation is also something I hold of importance. Finding flaws in others writing isn't a trouble, although finding flaws in my own work is troublesome. Fight scenes are also relatively easy for me to write. While my narrative ability shifts between preferring first person to third person, with the latter currently being my strong suit. Scenes or stories with a more darker tone and more 'gore' doesn't bother me either. Fantasy, depending on how laid out, can either be easy for me or difficult, again depending on the situation.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
While I try to include romance in my own stories, I am still developing that side of my writing skill. As such, the assistance I can give with writing is rather minimal. As mentioned in my strengths, I have trouble finding flaws in my own work, likely because I was the one to write it and thus unable to easily pick them out. Slice-of-life or romance oriented stories aren't my strong suit, so while I will develop them slowly, I am not skilled with them. I'm improving on my skill with 'Humour' but I'm not at a level I'd prefer. Hurt/comfort isn't my strong suit either.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Fics with a fair amount of fighting isn't an issue, nor is adventure-oriented stories. Horror stories are fine, maybe mystery depending on the situation. A fair amounts goes.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Smut is off the table, not because I don't like it, but because my ability to write smut/lemons/etc. is rather abysmal. Yaoi fics are also off the table because of personal preference and lack of skill in that area. Humour-centric fics... maybe or maybe not.
