topaz119: (Darcy)
Title: in deep with you darling
Fandom: MCU (post-Thor, Avengers, CA:TWS, A:AoU, with a little AoS thrown in for fun)
Rating: Mature
Length: ~48,000 words
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Clint Barton
Notes: I kept it as close to canon as I could but I had to go a little AU for Age of Ultron (sorry, but I was 30,000 words in before Laura was dropped on us and there really wasn't any other way I could finish but to pretend that part hadn't happened. I promise to make it up with more Clint/Laura in my small town girl series, ♥)

Summary: Darcy could have, under normal circumstances, resisted the aesthetics (however awesome they are, and holy crap are they awesome), but there's an itch under her skin—apparently, nearly dying by giant, fire-breathing robots from space in the middle of Nowhere, New Mexico will start you questioning your life choices. Who knew?

Super random thoughts:

Pat Conroy… sigh. On the one hand, yes, such a fabulous writer. On the other hand, I got to the point where I started every new book hoping he’d been able to move on, but knowing he hadn’t. I finally got to where I couldn’t allot any more energy to his messed-up childhood (and I honestly do use The Great Santini as a shorthand for my own.) I really hope writing out the demons kept the rest of his life free of them, but I haven’t read a book of his in 20+ years (probably once I started trying to figure out how actual functional family dynamics worked so as not to repeat the generational insanity) and I have no plans to revisit any of them now that he’s gone.

I watched the final episode of Downton Abbey last night, despite not really having watched it for years … cutting for spoilers )

Ohhhh, I just saw on twitter that Marjorie Liu is writing a new Han Solo title (with Mark Brooks doing the art)--my squee overfloweth!

The New York Times has put together a collection of Mark Bittman's most popular recipes, which is kinda interesting. I would not have thought the chocolate tofu pudding would have excited much interest in the NYT general readership, but there it is.
