Wanted: Beta reader for Pretender Fic.

So, I dunno what happened exactly, but for some reason I got thinking about The Pretender today. I dug around a little and found it's been almost 11 years since Island of the Haunted aired.

It might amuse the SPN fans on my Flist to know that Julian Richings played in that IotH. But I digress.

I wondered what became of Broots. Did he ever get out? Did Debbie grow up, graduate, become a dancer, a lawyer, a doctor, and artist? Did she get married? Was Parker there to stand in for her mom?

And Sydney. Did he ever stop participating in Center funded research? Did he remain complicit in the crimes being committed daily, willing to look the other way, offering tacit agreement that the means were justified by the end? In some ways, Sydney was worse to me than Raines; at least Raines was clearly a power hungry monster with no moral compass. Sydney seemed to have a moral compass and chose to ignore it out of some twisted rationalization that Jarod, and all pretenders, would be better off in a gilded (and really, not so gilded) cage. WTF Syd, seriously, WTF? Did you experiment on yourself with a few too many psychedelic drugs?

Raines and Lyle - did those two end up killing each other? Who ultimately won in the slime department? It was certainly a stiff competition.

And of course, Miss Parker and Jarod. What ever became of our beautiful, iron huntress, the woman haunted by her past, with secrets around every corner? What happened to Jarod, the little boy in a man's body?

I found myself, for the first time in years, really wondering about them, and suddenly there were words appearing on paper (well, in a document anyway) right when I was supposed to be finishing an audit for goodness sake! Next thing I know, I have about 1500 of them.

I don't know if anything serious is going to come of it - I have an sgareversebang story to get to work on! But maybe. We shall see.

Any Pretender fans on my flist wanna take a look at the draft and tell me what they think?

I wish I had time to beta-- I'm so excited at the thought of new Pretender fic. I can't wait to read it. Eventually. ;)

(Almost 11 years? No way.)

Hee! I appreciate the thought - I think Lucy is a big enough time drain for you right now!

You can, however read it right here!

I could take a look at it, if you want.

And yes, I have to agree with you re: Sydney. I never understood how he could justify what the Center did.

Sold!

I'll send you what I have when I get home from work tonight. It's no rush or anything - I feel like I barely know the characters anymore, so it would be nice to know if they feel right.

Then again, I think in 10 years, Ms Parker has changed a lot. At least, that's a big part of my premise.

It's been so many years since I watched it that I'm not sure how useful I would be on character, but I'd be happy to look at it for spelling, grammar, etc.. I'd definitely be interested in reading it.
