We've been invited to perform another makeover! This fic is a oneshot from the Yu-Gi-Oh fandom. Assignments and instructions are below!

Title: Reading Between The Lines
Fandom: Yu-Gi-Oh!
Location: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/2954615/1/
Approximate Size: Oneshot, long
Author: TaShYrEi


If there is some reason why you cannot/will not perform this duty please say so. Being assigned to a project does not obligate you in any way and you may exclude yourself at any time for any reason.

Categorical Staff: arizonaicerose - I expect you to make two different notations. You may use the comments feature, highlight feature, or font color feature -- whatever will make the differences both obvious and easy for you to tell apart -- make changes which are absolute such as obvious canon differences or impossibilities. Characterization and things which you feel are out of place should be done in a different format. When you have completed this give the edited work to the_sweet who can then go over and anything within your notations that she agrees with or disagrees with you can discuss between yourselves and determin the best route to take as to if to change that portion of the fic or not. When this is completed you will give the fic to the technical staff member listed below.
Technical Staff: fairest1 - The usual work for you. Grammatical errors are still errors, no matter one's personal feelings. Therefore simply go through and make changes based on the errors which are absolute. Anything you see which may be a personal choice (Such as the use of a semicolon over a comma or prepositional phrases.) you may use the same notation system as the categorical staff. You may use any feature listed above to your convenience for this purpose. When you are finished give the fic to the beta staff member listed below.
Beta Staff: tehmerlechan - Beta staff members just gained a new responsibility. Because there will be notations of personal feelings or choices based on possible changes for the fic when you recieve it there must be something done. Therefore it is now the job of the beta staff to take these to the fanfiction author and discuss the possible changes. If the author agrees then the changes will be made. If not, then the notation will be removed and the fic will be left "as is" on that portion. After this you will go through the fic as usual, looking for any loopholes or plot discrepencies. If the fic looks sound to you then you shall give it to the author for final approval.
General Staff: zandrellia - As usual my job will be to keep up with the progress of this fic and to maintain contact with the staff and author until the project has been completed. If this project is completed successfuly then I will expect the next project to be handled by a different moderator. (just to be fair and even out the workload.)

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask.

No problem. (I've got shingles right now so I know what it's like to feel icky) Awesome. You can send it however you like, actually. There's a post here that links to a fileshare host you could use.

Oh icky. I hope ya feel better soon.

Ok I added the story to that fileshare host site (the name of it is 'Seto Anzu'). It's word pad I hope that's ok but my comp deleted everything else. And sorry about the constant questions but how can I contact the next person to let the_sweet know? Sorry...I've been brain dead lately.

Ah I'm tough. Getting over it slowly, though. :D

Well she should be checking this every once in a while but if not you could give her a nudge. (on her profile?)
