Maple is available for all your beta needs! I took IB HL English, and I am fluent in French. I have been editing my friends’ papers for years, and have always achieved exceptionally high marks in English class.
Alternate Universe: This will be done on a case by case basis. Sometimes I like it, sometimes I don’t.
General: For sure.
Romance: I will beta all heterosexual romances.
Poetry: Absolutely! I may not be the best poet myself, but I am very good at picking apart other people’s poetry.
Abuse: Only if well written and handled in a mature and accurate manor.
Alternate Universe: Usually I’m fine with this, but it will be judged on a case by case basis.
Book 6 Disregarded: This is normally ok with me.
Book 7 Disregarded: This is normally ok, though let me know what you are disregarding.
Character Death: Fine with me.
DH Spoilers: Oh no, wait, I don’t think I’ve read that book yet Just kidding, send it over.

I can use track changes or colour changes depending on what you prefer, though track changes are faster. I prefer e-mail.
Strengths: Sentence structure and flow, plot, characterisation.
Weakness: I tend to overuse commas.
My turnaround time is usually less than a week. Usually I have it done within 24 hours.
I am very open to communication, so feel free to shoot me PMs and/or emails to inquire of anything from status to issues that arise.
