Seeking an in-depth beta for a Numb3rs fic

In the spring of 2009, I posted a very short Numb3rs fic, Uneven. People liked it, and some requested a continuation. Normally this has no effect on me, but this time my brain latched onto the idea and took off.

I finished a decent draft of the long-form "Uneven" late in the summer, and sent it to my betas for notes. Unfortunately, my betas of squee were (and remain) busy with RL stuff: they both sent me some good comments, and liked a lot of it. That was helpful! My in-depth beta had even more RL insanity pounce on her, and at this point I would like to find someone else to take on that task, so that she needn't worry about it anymore.

The fic is a disaster fic--I've even called it apocafic--heavy on the h/c and angst, starring Don and Charlie. It is fairly dark, fyi. Also, I really want an in-depth beta; my previous beta did tell me that she thought the beginning excellent, but it fell apart a bit later on, and I'd like someone who thinks she/he might be able to help me figure out how to fix it.

I'm dying to have this done and posted. :)
