Subject: Looking for betas!

Sorry it's been so long, but I managed to get a few pieces ready for the beta stage! Three, specifically - none of them are missions, but I don't know if I can call any of them Interludes either. I guess I can figure that out later, though.

The first piece (4300 words) is a character setup for a Cafeteria trio I plan to write in the future, based on snippets I've written in the past like this one. It's set around the late 2000's of PPC history, so I tried to keep some terminology period-appropriate, but I'm not sure if I'm getting it 'right' so to speak. Or if it even works as an introduction piece, but I guess there's a reason I'm putting it up for beta-ing, eh? (Contains BL2 from the Blacklist.)

The second piece (also around 4300 words) is my second DIA work and another character introduction - this time for Melpomene, who was adopted years ago but never had anything done with her until now. I tried to keep her accurate to her original work, but in general I'm worried about the personality of all three folk in this… Interlude? Still not sure what the proper term here is.

And finally, number three (3800 words) - not quite a character introduction as it happens midway into an Agent's career, but a peek into a new, slightly less funny plotline I might work at over the next few years. I'm mostly worried about if this one fits into the PPC setting at all, since while I know HQ isn't completely exempt from the serious, I feel like this one might straddle the edge a little between 'intriguing' and 'too heavy-handed.' Tone aside, it's set in Rudi's, so I'm curious to know if it actually feels like the place at all.

If you want to beta, don't feel pressured to go through all the pieces if you don't want to, just let me know which ones you want to beta for (you can contact me via email or on Discord - thanks to name change policies, my username there is cheesewheeler). I haven't dropped this many WIP pieces in a request before, so here's hoping this all works out. Thanks!
