It's time for another question thread!

The rules:

- You may ask any dev-related question you have in a comment. (It doesn't even need to be about Dreamwidth, although if it involves a language/library/framework/database Dreamwidth doesn't use, you will probably get answers pointing that out and suggesting a better place to ask.)
- You may also answer any question, using the guidelines given in To Answer, Or Not To Answer and in this comment thread.

Beta for a Steven Universe fic

Fandom: Steven Universe
Characters/Pairings: Rose Quartz/Pearl (one-sided pining from Pearl's side), Rose Quartz/minor original male characters
Rating & Warnings: None
Estimated Fic Length: 1,000-2,000 words
Notes: There are multiple minor original male characters. The fic basically focuses on Pearl being jealous of all the other humans Rose Quartz has ever been interested in. The story is set pre-canon so there aren't really any spoilers.

The fic is only halfway done; aside from the usual spelling and grammar checks, I'm looking for someone to give feedback on whether characters are OOC or not and comment on the story's flow. I don't mind harsh critiques :3
