Recs and Reviews
I’d never done any kind of fandom writing thing before, but it was so much fun, and working with Whizzy was great.
And the fic! The fic, which makes me so, so happy! Whizzy took my drawings and turned them into a story of intrigue and adventure. There’s Stephen the paladin, of course [...], Anthony the metallurgist, and a Mother Goddess who looks suspiciously like one Peggy Carter. There’s also appearances by Rhodey, Happy, Pepper, Natasha, a delightfully evil Obadiah Stane, and mention of Nick Fury.But most of all, there’s Steve and Tony (or Stephen and Anthony) dancing around each other; awkward and a little heartbreaking, until the the end when everything is right and perfect.
