You know...

There's nothing like waking up in the morning, after having your sleep interrupted for two and a half hours because even though your body and your eyes were both craving it your brain was going a mile a minute, to a review on an old story that makes you tilt your head and say "Do what, now?"

Apparently my Xander-in-Africa story, in which he encounters an Apatasaurus at Lake Tele...

is a crossover.

*boggles*

Really, I had no idea. I also have no idea what it's a crossover with, unless it's "Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend," which, I suppose, is a possibility.

I just thought I was writing dino-fic. Silly me.

Well, one good thing about that two-hour stretch of sleeplessness is that it gave me the next part of the Tony-POV actual!Iron Man fic. So, that's something, I guess.

And in weight-loss news, 123.4. I'm on track to be 122 by WorldCon. And I look fabulous.

I swapped out my Zoe/Jayne icon manip for the Tony/Pepper manip instead. Alas, the end of an era...

Remember how I said I wasn't going to write fanfic anymore?

Heh.

Nevermind.

CURSE YOU, TONY STARK.

So, yeah, the actual!Iron Man story? Jumped up and down and said, "Okay, that's Pepper's POV. What about Tony's? Huh? HUH?"

"Fine," I said, disgruntled. "Then can we work on the Cow and the Beanstalk?"

It got all shifty-eyed. "Mmmmaybe," it hedged. "But don't you want to write more Iron Man fic?"

"No," I answered, crossing my arms. "There's plenty of authors taking up the Tony/Pepper UST mantle, better than I do, who destroy me on a daily basis. The fandom doesn't need me, other than as a cheerleader and sometime icon maker."

"Well. If you're going to be that way..."

"I am. Deal with it."

And thus, here we sit. Me with a Chapter Two/Alternate Chapter One for something that should have been a one-shot. So not fair.

Yeah, I'll probably post it later tonight.

*eyeroll*

Yeah. Fic. Part...One point five? Same as before, only with a little intro and a little follow-up, and it's Tony's POV rather than Pepper's.

So, yeah. I am a sad, strange little girl.

Link to Part 1.0.
