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.


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?




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.

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.
