So today I went to a fannish meet-up at Ye Olde Cheshire Cheese on Fleet Street in London, where I met rageprufrock
among other lovely people whose lj names I do not yet know but hope they will add me soon so I can add them back :) It was a really fun afternoon/evening but it was soooo hot. However, I was wearing my brand new skinny dungarees, so this made everything better.
DON'T YOU LAUGH AT MY DUNGAREES, THIS IS HOW I RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, OKAY? EVERYONE KNOWS DUNGAREES ARE TOTALLY RAGEY. Ahem. (I think maybe I need a 'fashion' icon, huh.)
I should totally be writing right now, and my brain is telling me to write, but my hand does not seem to want to open the file. DAMN YOU, HAND. Oh well. Tomorrow? Amy vs Procrastination: 0 - 1000.
On that subject, a tiny complaint against the world: according to lj I have 73 friends, but nobody even commented on the bit of story I posted asking for feedback
? I know not everyone checks their journals regularly / has time / etc, but - nobody? I wasn't asking for long intensive concrit, just some reassurance that it doesn't totally suck and I should give up writing. (inmemorybound
, this does not apply to you, as I know you are reading it atm. The same goes for ionaonie
, who has read it before.)
A rec, then, since I'm here! Extra-specially for inmemorybound
, as I know she has been reading in this fandom (against her will) this week!
fandom is one I stumbled into by accident (as often seems to happen to me) while on my way through Iron Man
, having fallen in love with the 'verse through the magic that is RDJ. It meant I had to pick up on something like sixty years of history pretty fast, but honestly, it took less effort than you might expect - and, as always, comic fandoms mean pretty much anything goes, which gives a lot of possibilities for fic. This particular story I love mostly because of the bonding element - I'll admit, I love me a good bonding!cliche - but also because of the reluctance on Tony's part, and the way Steve has to persuade him to open up.A Meeting of Minds
As it turns out, the Extremis hadn't quite finished rewriting Tony's brain. The only potential fix has... consequences.Tags: avengers
