About my services: Hey everyone. As a beta reader I take it as my sole responsibility to look it over and provide corrections and honest critisism behind your work. I do NOT beat around the bush; that's something I refuse to do. I do NOT sugarcoat. If I think that your work is good then I will come out and say that it is good. If I think your work needs to be fixed in some way then I will tell you. If you send your work through email what I will do is this: I will take your work and paste it as a document in Microsoft Word. There I will make any necessary changes. Teal highlights represent misspelled and underlined parts represent altered sentences or add-ins.

I will basically read anything including yaoi and yuri. I will even read stories with pairings that I absolutely can't stand. For example, I am a huge anti-Sasu/Saku fan but my hate for the pairing flies right out the window when critiquing the writing. I don't discriminate no matter how much I hate a certain pairing or a certain genre. It's not my say to tell you it's wrong to like a pairing or a specific genre. All I'm doing is reviewing the work for posting.

I'm usually always available to beta your work. I will fully respect your work and not overdo anything when it comes to changes because it's not my story, it's yours. I am currently working as a beta reader on
Will not read: Okay, one thing I'm not going to read is nonsense. Please do not hand me a load of crap to beta. The story NEEDS to have a plot. One-shots at the same; they need a plot. Stories with OOC (Out of Character) are acceptable to a certain extent. If a regular character of a manga is OOC in your story then it's fine BUT some regular traits of that character should be intact. If the character(s) are completely OOC with no regular trait within them then I'm not reading the story. So no complete OOC. I can see that in a comedy story the characters might be OOC but don't overdo it to where it just becomes crap and the characters aren't even who they are anymore.
