Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Salutations! If you are reading this you must be considering me as your beta reader. I have been a registered member here at for a long, long time, and have read quite a bit of fics; some that were/are very good, but more often than not most were/are very, very bad. With that in mind, it is my sincere hope that I can help my fellow writers craft stories that will stand out among the standard, badly written and over used plotlines.
My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I am very good with sentence structure and word order. Recently I have gotten past using dialogue tags as well. I subscribe to the theory that they should only be used in certain circumstances and tend to make stories unnecessarily wordy. I'm also good at keeping your characters in character. Romance and angst are my strongest suits as they are highly identifiable in whatever universe you're writing in. Spelling, grammar, and word usage are also a few things I am good with. I am honest, and I will give my opinion(s) on any number of things concerning your story.
My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I'm terrible at starting stories and corresponding chapters, so please don't ask me where you should start. That's up to you. That does not mean I won't brainstorm with you if you need to, say, fill plot holes however. Sometimes I overlook puntuation errors. That usually comes with having to proofread long, wordy paragraphs, but is typically a short coming that happens in my own stories as I am always my own editor.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
Stories with chapters that have a word count less than thirty-five hundred words, give or take a few hundred. However, I will proofread longer chapters as long as you aren't on a deadline of any sort. Additionally, if you want my help please be as detailed as possible with your request. If you want opinions on characterizations please pay attention to my list of what I have watched and written for. Otherwise I will only focus on the technical aspects of your story.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
Subjects I detest or otherwise find unnecessary: character bash fics, out of character without a good reason,twincest and incest, excessively detailed sci-fi, gender bending, mpreg (Please. It's physically impossible), high school adaptations with the exception of the series or game taking place in/around it, unnecessary violence, excessive use of foreign dialects and/or Japanese honorifics. I am not a fan of non canon yaoi or yuri as a rule, and I absolutely will not read or edit slash of any kind, mild or detailed. However, I will edit general, non explicit yaoi and yuri (or MxM/FxF for non anime folks).
