There was an MCU Harlequin challenge and the deadline was April 19 by midnight.

I kinda kicked a few ideas around, but got no traction. Then, midafternoon on the 19th (no really) I got An Idea, about a pairing I'd never really spent much time considering. And then I spent the evening and late into the night writing it. It was no longer the 19th here when I posted, but it still wasn't quite midnight in California. It still counted. :)

Her Winter Soldier (link to AO3)

Her secret identities no longer secret, Natalia Radetsky was trying to build a new self and wipe out the red in her ledger. But when her ex-husband reappeared, all hope of a clean start was lost. How could she build a new life if an old flame threatened to burn it down?

Enjoy! And enjoy the other Harlequin fics too. I particularly liked Whizbang and the Flyboy, featuring Captain Marvel and Rhodey. :)

Putting that handbook together was so much fun. (More difficult was figuring out how to publish it, but through a painful process, I managed to make graphics out of the page spreads.) But now, I am back to wrestling with 1) my ongoing fic, and 2) my ongoing non-fic project.

I decided the fic needed restructuring because even in fiction, there should be some underlying reality... Also, I thought I should change one of my POV characters. So I started to revise it. The first few chapters were all right, but now I've hit the point where the new POV character has perspective (and attitudes) that the former POV character didn't (this is kind of why I dropped the former POV character -- she wasn't in the thick of things and ended up observing from outside). As a result, I'm not rewriting, but writing everything for the new POV character. (Not to mention that the updating for reality has resulted in me having to rewrite lots of things anyway.) It's fun, though. And I wish I had more time to play with it this week, but there is Real Paying Work to be done and that takes priority.

On the non-fic front, I'm debating whether to restructure my novel-in-progress a bit, as well. (I am queen of "It's not quite right, BURN IT and rebuild from the ashes.") In this case, a pair of secondary characters and their kids sort of stepped in and though their story is interesting, it's kind of derailed the forward momentum of the main plot. Time to restructure... Maybe if they are nice I will give them their own book, although they are already living their happily ever after.

Are there books set in the happily ever after? A friend and I discussed this at length once -- it's obvious that there must be some conflict, but having a couple unite against the conflict rather than being the source of the conflict seems to be key. Otherwise it's a marital squabble and who wants to read about those?

Title: Raison d'Etre (at Archive of Our Own)

Author: [personal profile] trespasserswill

Rating: PG

Notes: Complete, one-shot, post "Magical Place" (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. episode s01e11)

Character(s): Steve Rogers, Phil Coulson, Dr. Streiten

Summary: Dr. Streiten, rattled from his talk with Agent Coulson, asks Steve Rogers -- the only other man he knows who has come back from the dead -- to talk to the Agent.


About the fic . . .

You could say that watching "Magical Place" freaked me out. A lot. And Dr. Streiten seemed upset during his conversation with Coulson -- upset enough to maybe break a few rules. I could imagine him approaching Steve Rogers with the idea that Captain America might be the best person to talk to Coulson about the situation.

I told [personal profile] telaryn about this idea, and she said, "Write. It."

So I did, and there it is.

A Stitch in Time
a Ten/Romana fic*
by [livejournal.com profile] peacockharpy, for [livejournal.com profile] harmonyfb
Happy Yule!

They aren't mine, of course, but I do enjoy playing with them on a rare occasion. )

*I really feel like I should credit [livejournal.com profile] lizbee, somehow; she does great Ten/Romana, not to mention she's the one who told me about the Doctor Who Pattern Book. This fic was written as part of a gift for [livejournal.com profile] harmonyfb that included the aforementioned Pattern Book and a copy of Lalla Ward's Beastly Knits. I even included a short bit of wobbly knitting as a prop.
