I do not offer grammar services only. I give honest criticism about what I think would help the story. I leave plenty of comments, and I don’t hold back on crit!
That being said, I may come across as harsh. I don't think I am, no one I beta for thinks I am, but, I do give my opinion and I generally don't sugarcoat.
As anyone [cough cough ENVY] will tell you, I leave a lot of comments on the work I do, all of which I mean genuinely.
This MAY mean that you will be insulted by my criticism, even though every single one of my betaees has assured me otherwise :P
I do NOT accept Student/Teacher Romances, no matter what. The simple reason? They squick me out.
I will, however, accept all ratings and warnings other than the obvious one that goes along with the ship I do not accept. While I do ship Romione and Nevilluna and Scily very, very strongly, that does NOT mean I won’t accept a Dramione or Scorose. I will happily accept all ships, including SSP as long as they aren’t ?surprise surprise? Student-Teacher Romance.
I also go along with whatever genre floats your boat, guys. I will be the first to admit that my sense of Humour is very odd, so I may not be the best beta to help you with a funny story, and I don’t often read Alternate Universe , so you may not want to have me do that. But I certainly will if you want me to.
I tend to use Microsoft Word 2010 (but I can convert if need be) and Track Changes (Believe me, if you’ve never used them, they’re awesome). But if you need me to convert/use something different, I won’t have a problem with that.
At the moment I am available for three oneshots and NO chaptered fics. So go ahead and ask.
