Coughing continues. My neighbors probably think I'm dying.
No thanks to the illness, I can't seem to write anything. I managed a new scene for Hail of Shadows (because people were confused about Thor, and I decided I needed to make it explicit that he is Sir Sitting on The Bench While His Momma Takes Care of Stuff), but i have two fanfic ideas, not to mention anything non-fanfic and my brain is like pea soup.
Since my fanfic ideas are of dubious interest except to a couple of you, I will put them under a cut:
Since I can't do a sequel to the marvel_bang fic until Thor 2 (once I know what I'm dealing with, since the fic deals with changing that). If reception is disappointing, I might not do it at all.
So there are other options!
- No Superpowers Avengers AU, wherein Tony Stark is still Tony Stark but he's not Iron Man, and Loki is the black sheep son of Odin of Asgard Incorporated. Inspired by canon, but where Loki's fall comes through drugs and arrest, and his plotting for power is returning after three years away to hostile takeover of Asgard Inc Board of Directors. So, probably FrostIron, since they're going to know each other for quite awhile.
- different AU where a Loki from a version of the MCU where Odin wasn't the worst father in the entire Nine Realms comes to the MCU through a spell gone awry. Of course the Avengers think he's Actual!Loki, and he's all "What's wrong with you?" and there is Mistaken Identity wackiness. And Thor gets the worst day of his life when he meets Other!Loki and sees what could've been.
I didn't ask for these bunnies! And know they're all bouncing around randomly and I want to write one or the other, but I can't settle.
ETA: then I see that a MCU fic that posted today already has the same number of kudos I've built up on Hail of Shadows over months, and I wonder what I'm doing. *sigh*
Regardless, I've decided on doing my orig fic idea for NaNo this year. More on that later.
