"They had me rigged on this thing where I’m holding onto handles on his shoulder with my legs wrapped around his neck. He’s kinda trying to throw me off and I’m on top of him and it was so many hours of me, riding him like a mechanical bull.”

*showers glitter and confetti everywhere*

I am officially on vacation! Woot woot, no more working for ten days :-D Boy, do I ever need the break.

There may be a lot of writing happening. Just saying, my plan to not write fanfic in April while I Camp Nano-ed my way through an original project…failed.

I’m still on track with the original project, but I also have over 6k of a Steve/Bucky fic in the steampunk AU-verse. Um, oops? And that’s what I wrote working full-time and writing original fic as well this week. Ten days of no work? May produce words. It may also produce demon!Clint words because I just figured out the hiccup that had me stalled.

So, yeah, ten days of wording. And reading. And sleeping. And more wording. THIS WILL BE SO GOOD.

Steve Rogers' 1930s/1940s neighbourhood

But anyway, I recently sat down to figure out exactly where Steve’s local gay bars would be, or where the closest ones would be, for purposes of plotting things out, and uh … turns out that Steve Rogers lived in the MIDDLE of the biggest cruising/gay bar/gay hangouts area of Brooklyn. Like, a couple blocks from the St. George Hotel, which was almost entirely gay by the early 40s. 

This is actually a really great, fascinating essay on the area and time Steve grew up in. The whole idea that Steve (and Bucky even more) would be completely, totally clueless seems even more ridiculous when you really look at this stuff.

Fic Rec: Stories Told With Silence (56855 words) by scifigrl47 [AO3]

Chapters: 7/7
Fandom: The Avengers (Marvel Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Characters: Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, Pepper Potts, Natasha Romanov, Clint Barton, Thor, Phil Coulson, Bruce Banner, Kid Dummy, The US Legal System
Additional Tags: Kid Dummy - Freeform, Kidfic, Parenting a bot, custody battles, background Phil Coulson/Clint Barton - Freeform
Series: Part 4 of Tales of the Bots

Parenting is harder than it looks. But, to be fair, so is being a human kid.

In which Tony becomes the rather overwhelmed parent to a bot who is no longer always a bot, and finds out that if DJ Stark is ever going to leave Stark Tower, then they’ve got to figure out a way to explain him to the US Government.

For the first time, Tony regrets that time he called members of congress “assclowns.”

Why read: It’s both heartbreaking and uplifting, which is appropriate for a fic about kids and custody problems. Of course, it’s Dummy/DJ Stark so nothing is straightforward and it’s as much about DJ adjusting to all the changes as it is about Tony. I really enjoyed the examination of Tony and his slow, painful growth into being a parent and learning to find new, less self-destructive ways to handle his problems. It’s a fic with some beautifully lovely moments and a whole lot of character examination, that tore my heart at times but left me feeling happy at the end.
