No, I don't regret the title choice

So the BB fic is typed and now beta'ed, sent to the mods to approve of provided it is Steve/Tony enough.  I'm still debating on adding a scene with Natasha, but we'll see.  I might wait on that until I'm done with History Lessons sequel, which I admittedly haven't been working on as religiously as I might be.  It's probably nearly finished, but my interwebs are currently restricted to the office, and that's when I usually write.

I did find an awesome title though.  And by awesome, I mean 'This could not be any more perfect than it is' sort of awesome.  I'd gone through like, three or four that I didn't really care for, before Nar got the fic.  Then she was trying to find a good title and I figured I might as well look at a few poems to steal from.  Then Edna St. Vincent Millay happened, as she is wont to do.  Despite the fact I was looking for another poem by her entirely, she did give me the perfect title.  I knew she was one of my favorites for a reason.

Also, I had the awkward fandom conversation with my room mates.  It's a lot harder when they've never heard of fandom.  There's a reason I tend to avoid this conversation, and it's not because I'm ashamed of fandom or anything like that.  It's just so bloody annoying having to explain everything.  Yes, I like cartoons.  No, that's not childish.  Yes, I write stories.  No, they can't be published and you probably wouldn't understand them since you're confused by my Cap and Iron Man plushies.  Trust me, you don't want to wander into fandom by yourself because you will be scarred.  Just all the hoops you have to jump through when talking to someone who has no idea that fandom even exists.  It's exhausting, and I could be spending that time reading or doing other things.  -_-;;;

It was rather weird talking to someone who had never even heard of Marvel and its superheroes though.  Granted, it's probably not as big a deal in China as it is stateside, but the movies have been kind of hard to miss, I thought.  Then again, she's also sitting there calling me out on how unfeminine I am, since I don't like dresses, pink, half a dozen other things, and yet I like action movies and scifi.  I swear, it's like they've never heard of a tomboy here.  I shake my head at you sometimes, China.  I really do.

In the mean time, I'm still contemplating Steve and pandas for fic.  I haven't done pure crack in a while, though this will probably end up as Unicorn sort of crack rather than Roleplaying Time Lords crack.  I'm also contemplating a return to Whovian fic with the next Amy-verse (though I should really wait until the next Amy-verse gets back to me since it's still not posted).  I might throw up another poll just for kicks.  We'll see how it goes.  XD

Having fandom conversations with non-fandom people is one of the most awkward experiences. -_-;;

Then again, she's also sitting there calling me out on how unfeminine I am, since I don't like dresses, pink, half a dozen other things, and yet I like action movies and scifi. I swear, it's like they've never heard of a tomboy here. I shake my head at you sometimes, China. I really do.

Hey. Hey hey hey. Don't make me come over there, China. You and your more rigid gender roles China. Don't make me come over there.

though this will probably end up as Unicorn sort of crack rather than Roleplaying Time Lords crack

NO.

Also I'll get to Amyverse once I'm not CONSUMED to write about angst cupids. Because you made me write about angst cupids when I don't want to write angst cupids. I didn't even know angst cupids could be a thing. Angst cupids are entirely your fault. No, I'm not going to explain any of this properly.

And you really have no need to regret the title choice because it's living perfection. ;)

It really is.

You don't know the half of it. I was trying to explain that I liked Avengers the to my current employer, and he kept using 'she' for the characters, since I'm female therefore the main characters must be female for me to like it.

Let's face it. I can kill a unicorn, no problem. Killing a panda though? Not even I can go that far.

*raises eyebrow* Angst cupids?

XD
