Cut edge meeting beveled edge on drywall?

I have been finishing my basement and am haning drywall.
When doing the ceiling I have a few places where I changed the direction of the drywall to simplify hanging and save sheets of drywall.

This means I have cut edges next to beveled edges.

I figure I can just fill in the bevel with mud and it shouldn't be a problem - at least I am hoping....

Is this a horrible thing to do?
Am I going to have issues?

If this is ok what is the best way to approach the taping?
Should I fill in the bevel and then let it dry and then tape normally, or can I just spread mud and set the tape like a normal joint?

Pre fill the rolled edge before taping. Then after taping finish like any other butt joint.
