's "in your eyes (beauty be found)"
. Brendon/Ryan, highschool crossdressing. This was the second one I beta'd, and before I read it, I wasn't too gone on it, simply because I'm really not a Brendon/Ryan by themselves fan. But I adored
reading this, even though I'm pretty sure I drove the author crazy with how long it took me to get back to her, and my rambling off into other topics when I did email back. I love how vulnerable but still super-strong Brendon is in this, and how Ryan is so freaking messed up and doesn't even know it. It's always weird to read Panic high school AUs, because the scenarios could easily be an alternate history. This one defined itself as an actual AU really early on, which was brilliant for me, considering I tend to get confused.
(She also wrote me the loveliest
beta thank you ever. Seriously.)
I'm actually really ridiculously relieved that they're all up now. I can't imagine how the authors themselves feel. :D
