Since it's July 4th, a.k.a. Steve Rogers' birthday, I thought I'd post the link to the two Cap Reverse BB stories I wrote.

"Aw, Stevie, don't be like that." Bucky's voice was muffled by the door, but even given that, it didn't sound right. "Open up."

Steve fumbled with the lock, threw open the door, and there was Bucky, standing in the hallway, a suitcase in his hand and a bruise on one side of his jaw.

"We gotta go, Stevie," he said. "We gotta go now."

When Steve and Bucky get careless, they end up having to run away. But maybe running away will find them the home they've always needed.

I lucked out on the initial claim and got one of my absolute top choices, and lovely piece of art that let me write skinny!Steve and Bucky in the '30s. The artist also did a second piece of art that inspired me to break the smut barrier in my new fandom and write Steve/Bucky sexy tiems, so that was fun.

That was all I was supposed to write, but then a couple of weeks before the final deadline, this lovely piece of art with the Avengers as characters from a Chinese wuxia epic went up for a pinch hit. And no one else claimed it. I hadn't put this one of my list of initial claims because I didn't think I could do it justice. But my insanely optimistic muse suddenly assured me I could get the job done in two weeks. Stupid muse, but I did it, thanks in part to a lovely artist who had lots of ideas for the background of the characters.

Captain Steve Rogers was a trusted member of the Emperor's Palace Guard, but then his entire company was wiped out by the Red Skull. Now Steve seeks only vengeance for the death of his sword brothers and the man he loved. He thinks his is a solitary quest, but on his journey he will find fellow avengers to help him. Bu they will all have to come together to defeat the fearsome Hydra fighter, the Winter Assassin.

Now I'm going to take a few days break to recover from the stress writing of 10K words in two weeks before I get back to work on my Stucky BB story.

Happy July 4th to all my American friends out there!

I've got a bunch of longer stories on the go, but I've snuck this short piece into the queue. It's a goofy little sequel to my very first Stucky story, The Altar Boy Act.

I have now officially written more in the last month and a half than I did in the previous two years. Cap, Bucky and the gang continue to inspire, apparently.

Ever since Steve got big, it seems like he's been the one saving Bucky, when it used to be the other way around. Steve saved him from regular Nazis a bunch of times. He saved him from Hydra twice. He even saved him from New Jersey. (Fucking Paramus.)

Now, Bucky thinks, it's time for him to save Steve.

Or what happens when a former brainwashed assassin puts his mind to giving his boyfriend the happiness he deserves.

Yep, more Captain America fic. Which led to this conversation with the Sweetie as we were waiting for Ros to finish volunteering at our martial arts school last night:

Me: I finished another Cap story!
Sweetie: I never thought you would get obsessed with Marvel. And of all the Marvel characters you could get obsessed with, that it's Captain America... ::laughs hysterically::

This is payback for me making fun of his Marvel obsession for, oh, the last twenty years. (I still maintain that the Essential Ant-Man volume is probably not that essential.)

When she reached her eighties, Audrey though she was done with change. She thought things would continue as they always had.

Instead, Steve and his friends have brought her more change than she'd gone through in the twenty years before. She gets used to one routine, and then a new one crops up.

The truly terrible thing about waking up in the future, thinks Steve, is that everyone who looks at him sees Captain America, national icon. An icon 70 years in the making, never mind that he's really only lived 25 years. (Years don't count if you spend them in the ice, do they?)

Or what happens when Steve runs into an old friend from the USO.

And here's another Stucky story.

The Stucky writing binge continues unabated. I don't know if I've written this much, this fast since, oh, ever. I'm having a blast.

"Welcome to the USO," the director tells Audrey. And with a handshake, she's in.

Six month she's been in New York, slinging hash in a diner and going to every audition she hears about. Now she's finally got a job dancing. She's ecstatic.

She's not so sure about working with this Captain America guy, though.

Or how one showgirl finds out there's more to Captain America than meets the eye.

Apparently my subconscious' reaction to the shit show that was last week (including Trump's election, the deaths of both Leonard Cohen and Robert Vaughn, and topping it off, some poor soul jumping in front of my subway train home on Friday) was to finally shake loose a writing idea. And the fandom it decided would be just keen to work on was Captain America.

So here's my very first Stucky story. It's short, snarky, and involves lots of bad language. (I'll no doubt do long and angsty Stucky at some point, but this is not that story.)

The Altar Boy Act (1411 words)

Stark thinks Steve is a prude. Bucky knows better.

I don't know how it's been a month since I posted. (Okay, I do know how. BistoCon and soccer and the film fest and life, that's how.) Anyway, here's my attempt at a catch-up post.

First with the footie. We've had four games since I last posted, the last four of the season. The first two were disappointing, including a loss to the team of one of Ros' best friends. We had (cruelly) been hoping we could beat them since they were the only team below us on the standings, but they had a good night and we had a tough one. At least we could be happy for their win.

Last week's game was heartening. We played a pretty good team and managed to hold them to a tie.

This week's game was awesome. We were playing another team in the middle of the pack, but our girls seemed to really figure out how to play together. There was passing, and working together, and actually playing of their positions. Ros managed to score a goal by really sticking with the ball in front of the net. And another girl, who's always game but hasn't yet scored, got in a really nice goal as well. Add in two more goals from one of our best players, and we managed a 1 - 4 win! A nice way to end the season.

That's the regular season done, but next week we have Cup Weekend, which is our club's house league playoffs. We play four round robin games, and the top four teams play in finals a week Sunday.

Onto fans!

It's been over a week since BistoCon 2016, our little biannual Pros con in charming Romulus, MI. We had 22 people attending, and the feedback is that everyone had a fab time. I know I did! There were panels and episodes and games (provided by the brilliant Krisser) and lots of laughter. And we've agreed to do it all again in 2018!

Rejuvenated by the con and by spending time with such passionate fellow fans, I've finally started writing again. I've got over 1,000 words of a Pros story done, and a more or less complete idea of where it's going. This has all been helped by getting stuck in meetings at work that don't really concern me, thus giving me found time to scribble as I like. Very exciting!

The last thing that's taken up a good chunk of the last week, and will take up 11 days starting next week, is the Toronto International Film Fest, a.k.a. TIFF. The schedule came out last week, and we had to have our picks for tickets in this past Sunday, so I got home from BistoCon in time to spend days poring over descriptions of the nearly 400 scheduled films and narrowing them down to the 21 I want to see.

I'm hopeful it's going to be a good year. I'm most excited to see Free Fire, a '70s crime film. I saw this pic from it, with Cillian Murphy and Armie Hammer rocking these '70s threads, and it shot to the top of my must see list.
