Beta, anyone?Okay, so I know that there are so many beta readers out there, but I've found that a shocking amount of authors need help.
I have a rather disturbing obsession with grammar, spelling and puncuation- so I will gladly help with that. I've also noticed that many stories, in the first few chapters or so, will tend to drag on in an attempt to introduce characters. I would love to help anyone with this problem, if they have it, as well as anyone with stories with the offensive ratings of boring/MarySue/trainwreck/illiterate.
I'm mostly comfortable with the My Chemical Romance, Fall Out Boy, Panic[!] At The Disco, InuYasha and Avenged Sevenfold fandoms; but I would certainly beta for any other category- espcially original works.
For contact, I'm available 90% of the time when I'm not in school.
I use AIM, and email; but I will gladly make a new account on a different service if you need me to.

Good critqueI have not yet received any reviews or critques for my stories as yet. Because of the semi-abandonment of this site, I had to put a story in the originals with a disclaimer as to where it properly goes. Anyway, I have two complete stories here, and one in progress. One is multiple chapters, but unfortunately, because I didn't know how to get the chapters in right, I put it all in one shot, (about 180,000 words, and 23 long chapters: I've learned how to shorten them since.) Bottom line, is, are they good, do you like them, do they read well?
There was much more to 'The Epilogue' than was shown in Book 7.
