Iron Man - da Vinci


I posted a fic snippet from Iron Man II last night, and yet, my brain keeps running with lots and lots of dialogue - they won't shut up! If I actually wrote all this down, the story would be way too long. Oh, and one thing I don't think I mentioned is just how much love I currently have for Nick Fury. I'm not sure of the whys and the wherefores, but I find him absolutely fascinating, and love the character, even though he probably symbolizes what I most worry about as far as the Iron Man aspect of the universe they're creating. I love Iron Man because Tony is a superhero due to technology, his own brainpower and intelligence. I really dislike the idea of IM becoming infected with things along the lines of mutant spider bites and magical hammers. Remember, Nin drags me to every comic book movie that comes out, and while I enjoyed them well enough, they weren't anything I had any interest in after I walked out of the theater. Iron Man was the 'it' movie for me, and I don't want Tony to have to play with all those other guys [pouts]. And yet, there's Nick Fury, chatting up a storm in my brain. Go figure. I'm hoping we get an IM III before the Avengers movie, so I at least have one more installment of just Tony before he has to join the super secret boy band.

Where did all that come from?!? I rarely do thinky review posts.
My Fic Icons - Charlotte E.P.S Portrait


Just reread Practical Applications before starting up on the sequel. Hard to believe it's been two years since I wrote it, and reading my notes, how baffled I was that I'd even written it all! And I'd forgotten just how much I like the story. It's funny, looking back, how you end up in places you never expected. When I initially conceived Charlotte, it was an off the top of my head sort of thing, creating a character I never thought I'd write more than that once in One Day. Wow, shows what I know! I'm not sure how she went from the grieving widow who walked into the twilight, who I really didn't know all that well, to who she is now. I suppose Tony and Ezra get some credit for that :)
