I've put not!Pepper back together again. And boy, is she pissed.
And I find that I'm writing real, honest-to-God romance.
HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?
Okay, yes, I realize that the very nature of H/C lends itself to romance. And not!Tony is very H and will require quite a bit of the ol' C. But even when I write it (and Lord knows I have, it's one of my cast-iron kinks), it usually just deepens an existing friendship. I don't do hearts and flowers and puppies and babies and "Marry me." I've always thought that my romance bone was broken. *headdesks*
Well. Since the spec element of this is refusing to rear its head, maybe I can sell it to a romance magazine. If there are such.
Five thousand words and counting...
