Authors really should look for fanfiction circles to find people willing to beta read for them. There are simply way too many stories that clearly go without them and show. It’s painful to see a story where it almost looks like the author has some semblance of half a grasp on grammar, yet they randomly drop important things like quotation marks and capitalization for names.
Not that the perfect grammar would likely bump this story up to the “gem” statue. However, it definitely could have used someone to look over it and mark all of the obvious errors for the author.
Just a real shame.
