Planning, character voice, flowHarshness:
I need to know what I'm doing wrong, so be as critical as necessary.
I'm looking for a beta for a kidfic with the focus solidly on the non-kid characters. Basically the premise is that thanks to Soviet experiments and a shady Russian fertility clinic, Natasha and Bucky are the genetic parents of a preteen girl, and between Avengers and CA:TWS Natasha "adopts" her to get her out of the Russian orphanage system and for emotional reasons that she doesn't quite understand (and that I'm still working out myself).
Although given the premise an original character is unavoidable, I want to focus on how this affects Natasha, who has no idea how to do this whole parenting thing, Steve, who starts a relationship with Natasha shortly after CA:TWS, and Bucky, who is in no shape to deal with anything, let alone a medical workup revealing that he's got a kid.
If you want to get a feel for my writing skills, there's a short prequel to this that is currently the only post on my journal. It's in a very different style than what I'm planning for the main fic, but I thought it might be relevant.
