Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
I am a fanfiction/poetry writer. I've been on for a pretty long time, though I've only used the account to write for the last three years. As a literary critic, I tend not to point out as much the grammar mistakes (though I still expect spellchecked and 'most' grammar mistakes revised), as much as I do the flow, characterization, and other major components of literature. I will point out good things as well as the bad, to give a firm foundation for the people I am betareading to work with. What I require from people requesting me to betaread is that they have 'decent' grammar, characterization, plotlines, work cooperatively, don't expect their work to be perfect, and have a willingness to /

NOTE: I am still accepting requests but since I have gone into college and am doing summer sessions I have less time to do lengthy stories. If you have a request to send something that is only 3-4 chapters max, then I should have time to Beta Read. If it is 5, perhaps. 10 chapters is a no-no. One-shots will be perfectly lovely, and if they end tragically even better (I'm kidding). So send me a PM telling me what fandom it is, what it's going to be about, pairings if any, and how long it is-and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I've been told that I have a talent for flow in poetry and stories, so this is one trait that I will use to really crack down on in people's stories. I like to make my stories to seem 'real'-corniness and cheesiness are my two biggest enemies in writing. Since I am very particular in giving my own characters personality, I try to share how I do that with people I betaread.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I tend to not point out grammar as much as I should. This is because I too have grammar mistakes, and I view it a little too much as a common, everyday thing. If you want your story in ship-shape grammatically, don't come to me for a betaread.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I tend to like drama/romance stories, comedy, poetry, as well as angst, over any other-these are just my preferences. I will still betaread other types of stories, but be forewarned-I have less experience in any other types. As mentioned in my betareading preferences, I only know Final Fantasy VII, VIII, X, X-2, Ouran High School Host Club, Yu yu Hakusho, Harry Potter, Tin Man, and Lord of the Rings.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Any other stories regarding fandoms not included in the above I do not have the knowledge to properly betaread. I also do not do any Yaoi/Yuri stories, and stories with Lemon/Limes, due to my faith. Also, I prefer to do stories less than twenty chapters (with about two thousand words each chapter-you do the math).
