Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I'll admit, in my own fiction I have made many of the errors I hope to correct by beta reading your fanfic. But the reason I always did this was because I never proofread or, when I did, I was using the same knowledge to proofread that had helped me write the fic. Beta reading is great in the sense that it gives you an outside perspective and outside knowledge to draw on for a higher quality fic, so I'll be sure to pay close attention to any requests that I receive. However, if I get bogged down with requests, please do note that I may prioritize my beta reading and may postpone beta reading fics that don't hold much interest for me.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Grammar, punctuation, sentence structure, word choice, etc. Basically all the fundamentals. I can also help with giving you an outside perspective to help keep the characters "in character" and keep your story from becoming fluff.

Also, pacing. Pacing is an essential part of any story and I'd be glad to give my advice to any that request it.

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
Figurative language and expressions, mostly. I almost always use cliched expressions in my own fiction and drab details to describe (what are supposed to be) intense scenes. I can't help you when it comes to these areas.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I'll only beta read stories about media I'm familiar with. I may be able to beta read an Ace Combat or Shin Megami Tensei Story, but unless I've actually played the game you're writing about, I won't/can't read it.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
So long as you write your story with a clear plot/point/desire to write, I can even beta a lemon. What I won't read, under any circumstances, is a story that's written just for the sake of getting it out there with no regard whatsoever for the longevity or readability of it.
