"A conservative is a liberal who's been mugged."


"I have a really interesting political point of view, and it’s not always something I say too loud at dinner tables here, but you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal. You can’t. I wouldn’t wish that experience on anyone else, but it was very, very, very educational for me and has informed my proclivities and politics ever since."

More Iron Man icons!

And then two animated ones. First one is kind of subtle...

In writing news, I've done another 900 words on the not!Iron Man story, and now I'm kind of stalled on what sort of evidence they could use to convince not!Pepper that her boss is a monster. I might have...something. But it's kind of sketchy. Maybe. Hell, I don't know.

Okay, problem solved. I guess.

I have completed the scene where the bad man tries to suborn not!Pepper's loyalty to not!Tony. I think it's plausible. My Writing Buddy has it now; we'll see if he thinks it's plausible.

That scene added about a thousand words to the not!Iron Man story. Which makes the current wordcount...

Drumroll, please.


This is, to date, the longest piece of original fiction I've written. If I could add a thousand words a day to it, then in two months I'd have a novel.

And wouldn't that be a surprising and somewhat revolting development. I mean, I know I've been genre-busting lately with the Faerie Show Fic being a mystery and now this, but to have my first novel be out-and-out romance...

Which is a genre I not only don't read, but studiously avoid...

Um, yeah. That would be weird.

It's like I'm discovering my inner girl or something.
