Good: I have a complete first draft of my Stucky Big Bang story done. Nearly 34K words, and I don't think it sucks.

Bad: My original artist defaulted, which the mods apparently didn't catch until I sent them a "hey, I haven't heard from my artist in, like, MONTHS" email.

Good: The mods got me a pinch hit artist.

Good: My copy of the Stucky Not Without You zine finally arrived. And wow, it's as gorgeous as everyone says. Also not so much a zine as a giant, freaking art book. (I'd ordered two copies, one for a friend's birthday, and had it shipped to work, and schlepping the box home on the subway just about took my arm out of my socket.)

Bad: Okay, this isn't so much a bad thing as just a thing, but what with having an international order and a last name beginning with zed, I'll bet I got one of the last zines sent out. I love my last name, but it definitely makes patience a necessity.

"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!

Since Ros is doing her black belt next year (OMG!) she won't be playing hockey.

I, however, have signed up again for the women's learn to play lessons. I don't even know how this happened, but it turns out I kinda enjoy hockey. Or at least learning hockey skills. I may sign up for league play the year after.

In fannish news, I've got my Cap RBB story finished, formatted and ready to go, and my artist and I have a game plan for posting. My posting date is May 28th, so I'll be able to share the story and the fabulous art that inspired it then.

I've also just crossed the 10,000 word mark for my Stucky BB story, and have finally outlined where this sucker is going. And I've got a decent summary put together ready for the artist claims. There are, apparently, way more writers than artists, but I'm not going to stress about the claims too much. This is a story I want to write whether or not there's art for it. Not that it wouldn't be cool to get claimed.

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.

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.

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?)

"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.

"Twenty-four, hours," Phillips says. It's just Steve and Phillips in the command tent. Peggy has already spirited Zola off to London to begin interrogation, and the Commandos are waiting outside. "You have twenty-four hours to get back here and on a plane to London. Take twenty-five hours, and I will have you declared AWOL and your star-spangled ass court martialed."

Steve doesn't argue. He knows he's lucky to have even that much time to bring back Bucky.

No, that's not right.

To bring back Bucky's body.

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.)

Stark thinks Steve is a prude. Bucky knows better.

I'm about to do something horribly impulsive.

Namely, offering two fandoms for Yuletide where I've seen only limited clips of the source, simply because they star, respectively, Sebastian Stan and Chris Evans.

MCU fandom, you have a lot to answer for.

So, the film fest has been over for dayyyys, and I still haven't had time to write anything up.

This is in part because with soccer over, I foolishly volunteered to be the trainer for Ros' hockey team. Which then turned into me being the trainer *and* the manager of her hockey team. (They can clearly tell new suckers in this league a mile away.) All of which has meant doing an online first aid course and an online Respect in Sport course (a.k.a. the "Don't Be a Jerk" course), and setting up mailing lists and Team Snap accounts and aiiieeee!

It is also in part because in the little spare time I've had left, my brain has now been fully eaten by Captain America Stucky fandom. (So. Much. Fic.)

In between film fest screenings, I not only ducked out to buy the Cap: Civil War disk, I finally broke down and got a Funko Pop Cap bobble head. And ordered a Winter Soldier bobble head to keep him company. And when I told Ros not to tell her dad what I'd done, she promptly stuck this note to our front door*:

My daughter is a grass.
