What is Hoennshipping again? And will someone tell me what a beta reader is? Do they help you with your fic before you post it? If so, I want a beta reader! Volunteers?

The pairing of Ash and May.

It's a person who is willing to read through a writer's stories to spot mistakes in mechanics, spelling, and/or plotline before the writer submits that story to the public. In other words, they're editors, and as such, they need to know how to be blunt and accurate. No sugar-coated, one-liner reviews in response to fics they're betaing.

Yes.

It's not an easy job. Trust me. You really have to get in there, and you really need to know the do's and don'ts of writing before even trying. I'm not saying I'm a master either. I'm just saying that I've been a beta in the past, and it was pretty tough. I had to go through everything from proofreading a rough draft for mistakes to sitting down and talking to a person about how to make their ideas work. And sometimes, I'd get the sort of writer who wanted my help but didn't listen to a single thing I said. Other times, I'd beta for a fic that would never be published, meaning I'd spend hours of my time to be there for a writer when at the end of the day, they'd flush that work down the loo.

So, yes. It's tough.


Back on topic, Magma, have you tried writing such a fanfic yourself? Sometimes, the best fanfics in a person's eyes are the ones he writes himself.

Oh. Thanks I guess. Do you know any beta readers I can consult, since I don't want to burden you with my fics? Kazeto, thanks again for the help. And of course, I'll start a Hoennshipping fic just for the fun of it. Hmmph.

Uh-no Kazeto, Hoennshipping is not Ash and May. (HEAVEN FORBID!) That's Advancedshipping.

Hoennshipping is the pairing of BRENDAN and May. You know, white hat dude in Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald?

Franticshipping is also similar, which is Ruby and Sapphire, based off of those characters, or vice versa.

MagmaBlader, for the record, MLE is once again, on hold, but if you want, you can re-read it for your Franticshipping/Hoennshipping goodness. ;;

Hmm? Thanks AGAIN I guess. I'll get to work. I think the fic will be "I'll Be There", but I'm not sure yet. I'll change the post if I decide otherwise.


See ya, till next time! ;-)

P.S. (AUGUST 9th, 2006) I wrote the fiction. I hope folks will read.

Whoops. Ah well. The shippers themselves are just the same when it comes to... Well, actually, I won't state my opinion there.

And the white hat is actually Brendan's hair, as a side note.
