Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
1.) As a betareader, I will be honest about what I think about your piece. I'll go over what I think is good about the piece and how it can improve.

2.) My betareading style...I guess it's slow and sweet. I don't really want to be rushed with something, so if you're looking for someone just to get a quick read over, I'm not your type! XD

3.) Anyone who is looking for my services will get an honest opinion and a more polished piece.

Other: I will tell you right now, I do not write in the typical fanficition style. For example, I do not replace the names of characters with phrases like "red headed strawberry" or "blond ninja." I'm much more into novel writing, so if you seek my services, you'll be getting a different take on how I think you should flesh out your story. But just so everyone knows, I don't despise fanfiction sytle, I just write in a different way.

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
Syntax and diction seem to be where I flourish in writing. I have been told my descriptions are well done and read very smoothly. I'm also good with dialogue, plotting, and characterization. Also, if you got a OC, I can help flesh them out and not make them overwhelm your readers.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I am doing this to improve my own skills in grammar, so you can expect that to be my weakest field. Not that it's super horrible, in my earlier pieces you can see how flawed I was with it, but I have tried to improve. I do have dyslexia (some form of it, not to sure what) and makes me more avid to work harder with grammar. Also, I seem to have an issue with pacing and romantic scenes.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I prefer to beta stories that are really rated T and under. I don't mind doing rated M, but I will not really be able to help with your, er, "rated M" scenes. :P I'm just not that good with them. AU and OCs are great. I like crossovers as well, as long as I know about both of the original sources. And I don't really care about couplings, a good story is a good story, no matter if it's yaoi, yuri or...straight?
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Um, really, I'm open to anything but physical torture. Like, seriously, none. NONE. I know that's a weird thing to put down but I won't have it. Also, please don't send me fanfictions where I haven't been exposed to the original source.
