Beta Description
Beta Bio: general description as a beta reader
Hi, I'm Piemur. I am a fairly big fanfiction reader and have read probably thousands of fics. If you need my services, I would be glad to help. I will tend to read very quickly though fics, and if I'm betaing that chapter, I may miss out on minor grammar issues. I try to read slowly to catch them, actively looking through the sentences, but I sometimes want to get the whole of the plotline and start reading in high-speed mode. I really love good plotlines and interesting crossovers, particularly Ranma crossovers. You will see in the other sections.

I am currently betaing for Ryouga's Best Friend for his Ranma/Negima crossover fic "Magic Within"

My Strengths: beta, writing, or reading strengths
I do believe I'm pretty good with grammar and spelling, and I would be more than happy to attempt to help people with plot. You just need to give me what you have in mind and where you want the fic to go. If you want ideas, I'll be more than happy to help. It's always your choice to take the ideas or not. I also have a tendency to like most fics in general. There are literally hundreds of thousands of talented writers out there, and I am one of those types that will like just about anything.

Anyway, I mostly like to read Ranma fanfiction and Ranma crossovers, but am also interested in Harry Potter, Naruto, and any crossovers with other anime's. It's always interesting watching (reading) the various character interactions and viewing the reactions for the different characters that enter into a new world with new rules and environments. Did I mention that I had a tendency to like anything? That's probably why...

If you need a beta, and it ISN'T in Ranma or Naruto or HP, do not fear! Just let me know the fic you need the beta for. I'll take a look, see if I like it or not (remember, it is more likely than not) and I'll let you know if I'm open for betaing that for you!

My Weaknesses: beta, writing, or reading weaknesses
I have a tendency to read very fast after a point, so I may tend to miss grammatical and spelling errors when I get into full "what's the plotline" and "read faster so I can get the plotline" mode. I do want to catch grammatical errors, but when I get into this mode, I may have that tendency to miss the more minor errors.
Preferred: types of stories I prefer over others
I really like to read primarily Ranma fanfiction and Ranma crossovers, but I would be just as happy to beta most other anime fanfictions within reason.
Would Rather Not: I do not beta for these stories
I don't really like those "short chapter, thin plotline" type fics. You know, the ones where the author has very little experience writing and the fic just rambles on giving the reader a fic thats not well fleshed out, and things progress too quickly. I also don't really like those kinds of self inserts where the SI all of a sudden becomes great friends with all the major characters, becomes extremely overpowered, and dominates the story. And all of this happens without any real effort. It is quite fortunate that there aren't too many of these types of writers, but they do pop up, and I don't really like them as much. Well, if the plotline is unique enough I'll give them a read, but don't get your hopes up for me to beta them. And I don't realy like Angst all that much, unless there is a good plotline for it.
