Re: Beta needed for McShep NC17
- Hey, I'll do it for you if you want.
You may find that I update pretty slowly though as, I've got exams
and coursework deadlines comming thick and fast, but I'm a sucker for
McShep whumping, and it gives my brain something else to focus on,
rather than just A Levels.
Also a Brit, so I won't yell at you for using the Queen's English.
Unfortunately, my medical knowledge is restricted to what's in my
Mum's old nursing textbooks, and what I remember from when I helped
her to study for her GNVQ 3, so apologies if I seem a bit clueless
when it comes to medical jargon!
