I like to write. These days, I focus most of my energy on my original stuff, but I do still crank out the occasional fanfic. At the moment, I only post my writing on Lunaescence, so if you see my stuff on any other site, it's most definitely not me posting it there.
I also happen to be a mod here on Luna. As such, feel free to contact me about any of your site-related concerns! (Don't forget to include your username.) You can reach me at: feels.like.laughing[at]gmail[dot]com.
I'm a twentysomething living in the USA with a bachelor's degree in English. I love reading (naturally), anime, video games, and my dog. I also have a strong penchant for all things sweet and a deep love for pretty-sounding and funny-sounding words.
Thanks for stopping by!

About my services: Currently beta-reading SimplyComplex's "Expect Nothing". Open for more stories.
I beta based on individual stories. That means that even if I've already agreed to beta for you, each of your stories counts as a separate project, and I may not agree to read all of them.
If you're looking for a beta reader who will gush over your story, tell you it's perfect, and then send you on your way, I'm not that beta. ^_^ I am not afraid to point out mistakes or changes that may be needed. That said, I swear I don't bite, and I'll never rip at your story without reason. I hope that we can become a team, working to make your story the best it can be!
When it comes to spelling, grammar, and punctuation, I've got you covered. I'm extremely nitpicky and few mistakes escape me. ^_^
As for other elements, I can help you keep canon characters in character, develop your OCs, work on your plot, smooth out any inconsistencies, and sort out any specific concerns you might have. I can also help you flesh out any ideas you have (including brainstorming), and I can offer you my personal opinion and impression of any element of your story or of your story as a whole. You only need ask.
In most cases, I am more familiar with an anime than the manga it comes from, so double-check that with me if you ask me to beta your story.
If you have any questions, don't be afraid to contact me! I can even do a sample beta-read for you if you're not quite sure I'm what you're looking for. ;)
Will not read: OOC is really hard for me to ignore, so if you are writing OOC characters on purpose, and don't wish to fix that, then please don't ask me to beta your story. I also won't beta-read any explicit sexual activity at this time. That includes lemons, detailed rape scenes, etc. (Though I will beta-read limes.) I will not read incest. I don't read any real-person fiction. Other things go on a case-by-case basis, so if in doubt, ask me!
