Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I enjoy helping out others in their stories whether it be checking for spelling/grammar/punctuation errors or just simply giving my opinion on the plot of a story. Afterall, a good writer is one who is willing to seek advise from others. br /br /br /

I am pretty laid back when it comes to beta-reading in general but I will be very honest when feedback is requested. I am also fine with making a few changes in the story should the author be okay with /br /br /

That being said, the only thing that I ask for is that the story should be done seriously. Comedy and romances are fine but serious in this context means that it should be an actual story. No messing around unless if the author in question is relatively new to writing. Then, leniency would be assured.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I have a knack for picking out grammatical errors and other errors that Word would occasionally miss. I am also not picky with my reading material so I can pretty much read and review anything save for a few exceptions. I particularly enjoy stories that put attention to detail and make the plot seamless so I will point out, to the best of abilities, any plot holes or insufficient details.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
As stated before, I am not picky with my reading material. However, if a story is written based on something that I am not familiar with, the best I could do is perform spell-checks, grammar correction, etc. I am also not that great in realms of romance and lemons so while I may dish out a review or two on such works, expectations of improvement by my hand should be kept to a minimum.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I enjoy nearly anything, really. Personal favourites go to stories that experiment with seemingly odd cross-overs and make it work spectacularly or just anything that can get me intrigued for more than two chapters. When it comes to series, the ones that I know well and enjoy are Touhou, Hellsing, Bioshock, Half-Life, Alien, Black Lagoon, Cowboy Bebop, Resident Evil, Doom and Gurren Lagann. There a lot more that I enjoy but most of them I don't know as well as the ones mentioned.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Fics that contain self-inserts, yaoi, yuri and slash elements. Don't get me wrong; I acknowledge that there are quite a few fanfics out there that I can personally claim to enjoy that contained such elements. However, speaking from personal experience, rare gems like these are hidden deep beneath the vast ocean of mediocrity and godawful writing. The only exception to this rule is if it happens to be a writer's first attempt or said writer just so happened to be new to this.
