NaNo complete, and first draft complete

I wrote the epilogue for my story last Friday, so the final days of November were spent doing a full proofing, fill in missing transitions, and get initial revisions done. I now have a completed first draft for "Choices Seal Our Fate." It clocks in over 83k words (how much over depends if I look in Scrivener or Word).

For the moment, I've signed up for sammybigbang to post this story. With how excited I am about this, though, I'm starting to question if I want to post earlier. Before I do anything, I want to be sure I get other eyes on this.

Anyone reading this interested in doing some beta-ing? (Key things I ask my betas for are: plot flow, plot holes, and characterizations. There's also some wording questions with this one.) Or, can anyone point me in the direction of finding a beta? I've not been active in SPN fandom for years.

Two questions: what's the pairing, if any, and when do you need it by? If it's anything but Wincest, I can probably swing it (no offense, but that ship sinks my personal boat), as long as I've got a bit of time.

As for other betas, the only person I know still active in SPN fandom isn't betaing for anybody else right now.

(winchest creeps me out >_>) There's no actualized pairings, though vague hints towards Sam-Jo-Crowley.

Summary: Dean and Sam Winchester split ways in the wake of Lucifer's rising. When his last conversation with Dean leaves Sam convinced there's no hope of reconciliation, Sam sets out to find his redemption in stopping Lucifer on his own.

Little did he know he would find companionship with an old friend, Jo Harvelle, and the King of the Crossroads during his pursuit.

Based back on S1-5 characterizations and info (given how much Crowley developed and changed over the later seasons).

I don't have a time frame in mind, really. If I save it for a BB, then that doesn't come 'til February. I'd kind of like to post earlier, though.

I think I'm going to have to pass. I'm just not sure what kind of time I'll have between now and then, unfortunately, or how this move is going to go. I'd hate to make a promise and then have to break it.

*hugs* Not a problem. I appreciate that you considered it! Moving is such a task... I wish you luck!
