I wrote two fics for smutswap
My assignment was for geckoholic
. It was going to be a series of smutlets, except the first one kind of blew out (hur-hur) and then I ran out of time, as per usual. So instead of starting at vanilla and moving on to further kink, it kind of ended up staying at vanilla.
Presumptuous - MCU: Maria/Steve - First Time, Woman On Top
Maria Hill's opinion of Steve Rogers in bed: "A+ partner, would fuck again."
After I finished my assignment, I went looking for more Maria/Steve prompts, and found a couple of others. This one ended up being for both geckoholic
because they asked for different prompts but it kind of all ended up in the same fic.
What Happens In Asgard - MCU: Maria/Steve - Established Relationship, Secret Relationship, Wall Sex, Sharing A Bed, Drunk Confessions, Fucked Against A Window, Clothed/Naked.
Asgard isn’t interested in the sex lives of its royalty, and even less in the sex lives of its royalty's visitors...
The second one is technically set after CA:CW but it's a very technical consideration.
assignment was, again, MCU: Steve/Maria. (Hey, I'm not complaining. I just wish other people would write them, too.)
Recipient was sbarmarj
and I admit, I used something I already had since she hadn't given me any prompts!
Building Blocks - MCU: Steve/Maria
Building a relationship, note by note.
This is also the next installation of Steve/Maria fic-tag that I've been playing with geckoholic
(man, you got a lot of Steve/Maria fic out of me this round) whose prompt was Post-It / Sticky Notes
from my cottoncandy_bingo 2014 card
And I picked up a pinch-hit in the first round of defaults for lynndyre
any port in a storm but only one place to call home - Persuasion: Anne Elliot/Frederick Wentworth
Something in her holds him fast, like the last line connecting a ship to shore.
...and then I saw a prompt by Rina
which I ended up gifting ahead of the story reveals because the only fics being posted on the Maria/Steve AO3 feed were those not-fics by the person who's basically tag-trolling for hits and I wanted something decent on there.
Snow Falling On City Blocks - MCU: Steve/Maria
He glances at the woman beside him and wonders. “What do you see?"
Hill glances at him, a startled blink of blue eyes beneath ridiculously long, curling dark lashes. “Cover. Concealment. Cold.” The smile flickers sideways. “And, apparently, alliterative tendencies.”
Finally, about two hours before I went off to see CA:CW, I wrote metafic:
Pinky And The Brain - MCU: Maria & Pepper
"You know, if we’d been in the movie, and the script had been written by a woman who actually likes women, it would have been very different."
Yeah, it's been a busy couple of weeks.
...and with that, I am at 699
works on AO3!
Um. Wow. I was only at 600 in February last year, with No Fate
. Where has the time gone? (How the hell did I manage to write 100 fics in a year - some of them rather long!)
Thankfully May is a quiet month (for a given value of 'quiet').
I have To The End Of Love
(post-CA:CW fic) on the brain, which I just need to shut up the inner editors and write. It won't be very good, I think, and there'll be holes that I could drive a helicarrier through, but I want it out of my head. OUT OUT DAMNED PLOTBUNNY!
And I have a feeling I'm not going to make the wipbigbang
. That's supposed to be finishing a practical acquaintance with bees
and unless I'm really crazily inspired in the next couple of weeks (well, the next week) I don't think I'm going to make the snippet deadline...
