No need to be anybody but oneself.

beta request for an already-posted Bones WIP

Forgive me, but all my writerly insecurities are flapping in the wind. One thousand years ago I started writing a Bones fic titled Come Undone.  A baby, a general lack of free time, and a healthy dose of doubt got in the way.  Now, a gazillion years later, all three impediments still exist.  However, I'd also like to pick this story back up again.  Emphasis on like.  I don't know if I can, I don't know how frequently I can update, I don't know if I've bitten off more than I, personally, can chew, etc. etc.  But I'd like to at least try. So I'm looking for some help, from one or more people.  I need some fresh eyes on this old story.  Here are the links:  Ch. 1, Ch. 2, Ch. 3.  What I'm hoping for is a bit amorphous -- a sounding board to help me chew over and generate some ideas, occasionally a cheerleader/hand-holder (just being honest here), and someone who'll suggest changes for the existing and future chapters if she thinks they're necessary.  But caveat emptor because I'm not 100% sure this is going anywhere right now, and I don't know that my life as it is today will allow me to stick to any kind of strict timetable.  What I do know is that IF this story is going to progress, I need some help jamming it loose.  I'm afraid that the further I get from it, the harder it's going to be return.  Hell, several seasons of the show have already passed... This probably doesn't sound like something you want to get yourself into, but if you can tolerate a high level of uncertainty and are willing to help, give me a shout here or via PM or email.
