Birthdays, Sequels, and Timelines  
Been giving this birthday party fic some more thought, and you know, I think I can make it all a part of the sequel to Practical Applications (which has long been titled Transformative Variations). Looking at the story now, a lot of how Tony behaves ties in perfectly with his action in the sequel. I think I just need to tighten up the timeline I'd initially anticipated.

If PA takes place, say, six weeks before the Expo, Tony showing up at Charlotte's and giving her the car and wanting her to head up this new charitable division of SI makes a whole lot of sense considering what's happening to Tony health wise. So the sequel picks up that same day, and the events I've already partly written, like Tony discovering Charlotte is Immortal, take place just before the Expo, then just before Monte Carlo and the race. The new stuff, like the race restaurant and birthday party scenes, I just fold into the framework. I think it could work with a little tinkering. Of course, this will be a much larger undertaking that just a story set during the birthday party, but on the other hand, it finally gets the sequel written!

Hope I can translate it into actual writing!

I think it sounds excellent. And I'd love reading it, because while I am atrocious at remembering to comment, your fic was the reason I finally watched Iron Man, and decided I really needed to go see Iron Man II. Because it is excellent, and the way you write Tony Stark intrigues me, and I want more. *makes grabby hands while remembering to breathe*

Awww, thank you! That's so great to hear, and I appreciate it.

That sounds like a great idea and a great way of working in both sequels!

Now to actually write it!

Good thinking! This sounds very plausible, and I'm looking forward to reading more of your excellent work!
