Default Can I borrow a few brains?

Figured that some Talent fans won't be looking in the Exhibit Hall...

I have a Talent fic. It's not up here, it's not up at ff.net. I really, really like it because, of all my fics, I think I've gotten the characters down to a T. And I have a totally awesome scene between Gollee Gren and Jeff Raven. (Oh my, I almost typed "F'lar". That would be an interesting AU!) And Gollee Gren is done in first person! Which is pretty cool.

Buuuuutttt...the fic touches on some adult topics like none of my others do. And AMC does have her fanfic rules. I keep looking back on this one, and I actually think I handle the scenes and situations gracefully...but the topic is one I've only ever seen (possibly) referenced in the Pern books, and it was linked to Meron and Kylara, who are Bad Guys as you know. And this fic is really treading close close close to that line in another part, regardless of That Topic.

So I don't know. I want to show this one off. I'm not sure if I can by the rules of AMC.

Can I borrow a few brains who will read it and let me know if they think it's postable in public?

Read Damia again, the scene where she maims poor Amr Tusel. It's rather more explicit than most Anne fare.

Oh I'm aware of that, and have taken it into consideration...I'm still asking if someone will eyeball it. Just in case.

Edit: If someone will be up for eyeballing it, PM me with your email addy? I'm not looking for an actual beta or reviews, just a "I think you can get away with it" or "No, you're breaking AMC's rules".

PM your email if you'd not mind eyeballing it.

Thank you!
