burritosong: (music)
Last night was a weird night. I had strange dreams that I couldn't really recall when I woke up, save for the fact that Chuck Hansen and I were a Jaeger team and I think we may have been fighting the giant Chitauri sort of snake-dragony ship thing but it may have also been Parallax? I don't even know. All I do know is that the strange dreams meant I had a very unrestful sleep.

On top of that I had trouble getting comfortable before sleeping, and ended up sleeping in a twisted up position so that I woke up with my neck hurting.

So today was fun and by the time I got home from work the rest of my body was starting to ache too, and now I am getting intimately acquainted with my heating pad.

There will be a post about Sandra's visit. It's just coming...later.

Title: #girlavenger, or How Natasha Trended on Twitter and Saved the World
Fandom: Avengers (MCU)
Characters/Pairings: Natasha Romanov/Maria Hill, Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers (implied), Tony Stark, Phil Coulson's body, cameos from various Marvel characters, a few OCs
Rating: T
Warnings: some misogynistic language
Summary: Natasha becomes an internet phenomenon. It's nothing that she was ever trained for.
Notes: Written for Heroine Big Bang 2013, with artwork by inkvoices and a mix by salvadore_hart (link tba).

I've had the idea in my head for a while, of Natasha adjusting to becoming a super hero, how it differs from being a master assassin/spy, and what it would take to make her enjoy her new-found celebrity.

The hugest of thanks go to samalander, who is my forever girl; the ever-lovely theoreticalpixy; Kyle, the perfect cheerleader; and to thesifsterhood, who was a marvelous beta. Without them, this story would be much worse. Smaller shout outs to chromatographic and stichomancy, who are wonderful confidence boosters.

I'd also like to give a huge shout out to [ profile] inkvoices and [ profile] salvadore_hart for creating the art and mix for my story. Thank you guys so much for your patience.

Art by [ profile] inkvoices: a lovely drawing and several manips that I absolutely adore (one of which I used at the top of this post) on LJ or AO3
