death and dream

(no subject)

I am waffling so hard on getting a beta on this story. On one hand it is super long for me (20k! omg!) and I have a hard time holding all of it in my head at one time and have been staring at it so long I've long since lost any perspective on it. On the other hand, I kind of just want to post it so that I don't have to look at it or think about it anymore. So I guess I'm putting the question out to you guys. When do you get a beta? When do you not? Does it vary on word count? Subject matter? The phase of the moon?

Maybe while I sit on this monster, I will try to write some Sense8 fic. Dunno what, yet. I feel like the show is super satisfying as it is, but I also feel like there are a lot of tasty feelings to explore. A different sort of family, not quite a found-family, more like a birth-family, a group of people you're thrown together with and you love anyway. That's a thing. It's been a while since I've written weather fic.
