Beta (no longer) needed: Angsty threesome PWP (no, really)  
what is this I don't even

I wrote smut, guys. You know, the stuff I usually skim and won't beta? Yeah, that. I don't even know.

And now I need a beta. Explicit sex (McKay/Keller/Sheppard) with bonus angst, because that's just how I roll. Unequal relationship dynamics (but this isn't McShep pining, don't worry, and no consent issues or partner betrayal); a teensy mention of ridiculously minor bondage kink; about 1800 words.

(ETA: I know have two brave volunteers and one sympathizer. Thanks, all!)

Everything I know about writing explicit sex comes from reading fanfic and fanficrants, so ... yeah.

I would totally offer, except that my knowledge of sex is also entirely from fandom, so I don't think I'd be much help!

We do make quite the pair, don't we? Hee. Thanks, though!

If you still need one, I'll beta for you... (I do read smut, albeit somewhat pickily, and have betaed two or three of busaikko's fics.)

If you're willing, that would be lovely — and if it crosses the line for you, you can send it back, no foul. (I actually have the same hang-up implied for two of the three participants, so I'm totally sympathetic to stuff just not working for someone.) I don't see an email contact in your profile — the fic is currently in an MSWord .doc file — so what format/contact method do you prefer? (You can PM me back to keep it private if you like.) Thank you!

I'll read it, although, I have no idea what fandom-space you're talking about.

Well, this does add a new angle to our relationship!

Heh. Just feeling a little awkward. Anyway, that would be lovely! The characters are from Stargate: Atlantis, though I'm mostly worried whether it holds together on its own (too coy, purple, trite, whatever) without that knowledge. It may become abundantly clear that I'm inexperienced with certain stuff. I will email you the .doc file; feel free to use whatever method you like for feedback.

If it helps: the characters are John Sheppard (Joe Flanigan), US Air Force, amiable but emotionally uncommunicative; Rodney McKay (David Hewlett), astrophysicist and mechanical engineer, hyper and self-involved; and Jennifer Keller (Jewel Staite), medical doctor/chief medical officer and McKay's girlfriend as of the end of the show, think a less chipper Kaylee. (Fandom has shipped Sheppard and McKay together for years.)

Thank you!

Dude! I go away for a few days and THIS happens. Wow. Just wow.

a-HA! It's your fault! The free-floating smut* came looking for you, but since you weren't here, it smacked into me instead!
