Work continues apace...

On the not!Iron Man fic.

Yesterday, I filled in a couple of scenes between the time they get rescued and the final scene. Darling du jour? ...his head felt like a chinchilla was stuffed in his cranium... Yeah, you know that cotton-headed feeling? I was trying to describe it without using the cotton cliche.

Also, I've made my villain a little less MPD by explaining his motivations a little better. I think it works. Maybe.

Word count? 10,880.

And now I'm kind of to the point where I'm wondering if I'm spinning my wheels a bit and just adding stuff to add word count rather than advance the plot or expand characterization. I don't know where else to go with this.

Other than the werewolf place, which I don't want to do for a myriad of reasons. Which is weird, coming from me, but there you have it.

Hey, look! More icons.

Shocking, I know.

I really need to make a "Ready, Fire, Aim" icon, but I'm having a hard time finding a cap that fits it.

I've been through the not!Iron Man fic one more time. Again. And I'm not really sure there's anything to be gained by adding anything further to it. I'll probably post the new and improved version later for those who have been playing at home.

See, this is why I love my flist.

Seriously, y'all rock like big rocking things. You push me and nag me and say "What about this" and "What about that" until I actually get it, and something clicks in my brain and goes, "Oh, yeeeah! That's what I need to do."

I've got my villain monologuing. It's only a few 'graphs, but it adds some needed depth to his character other than "HAHA, I'M EVIL AND LIKE TORTURING NOT!TONY JUST FOR FUN."

Okay, dude has issues. Go, me for bringing them out. *hugs texanfan a huge squishy lot for the aforementioned pushing and nagging* Sometimes I'm just incredibly dense and need to be told something half a dozen times before it sinks in.
