In Need of Beta

I'm going to mirror this post on esca_fanfiction and escafans.

I'm in desperate need of a beta-reader for an Escaflowne continuation fic. (Not a Mary-Sue, not Slash.) My problem isn't really horrible grammar, though there are a few instances that I'm sure I should be shot for it. What I'm really in need of is someone to check continuity with the previous chapters and the canon. It's a project that's taken a back seat to school for the last six months, but I can't seem to finish it on my own with all that I have to do.

Which of course begs the question... Why come to the fans and not go to some big beta reader list?

This story started because I really love the characters of Escaflowne, and I'd like to think that my readers have come to love the characters and the story as I'm developing it. I'm not really interested in a beta that's unfamiliar with the sesries. Ideally, as with my other beta readers, I'll be able to have plot conversations with this person, which requires more than a passing familiarity with the show.

If anyone is interested, or knows someone who might be, please let me know and I can give you links to the story to see where it stood before this school-induced hiatus.

Thanks for taking the time out to read this.
