In my spare time, I write fanfiction and lead a cult of cock worshippers on the Internet. It's not the usual kind of hobby for a 40ish "domestic engineer" but we live in a modern world and I like fucking with people's expectations.


  1. Can’t wait. One of my favorite pairings. *g*

  2. this sounds sweet! and congrats on taking up the challenge. \o/

  3. O, this looks amazing! One of my favorite “new” fandom pairings that have cropped up over the past few years, with one of my favorite tropes. I know you’ll weave an awesome universe and leave us wanting for more!


  4. Yes, yes, yes. Will love reading this story. Thanks for sharing with us minions.

  5. Everyone else has said what I’d want to tell you but I’ll say it all again anyway: love this pairing, glad you’re writing in this fandom and shipping my fave ship, excited to read what you post, and I know it’ll be awesome!! Thank you for sharing your ideas and talent!

  6. Ooh! I love both these pairings – one is super snark hotness and the other is super efficient hotness. Looking forward to seeing what you do with them.

  7. I *LOVE* you! It’s like you’re magic 😀
    Whatever fandom you fancy falls on you end up with *beatiful* short and/or long stories 😀
    Your characterization of Tony and Steve is spot on (to me;) ) even though Tony/Bruce is my OTP you’ve made Steve/Tony real for me 🙂
    I have a copy of all your ebooks on all my tablets, so that if I ever end up stranded – I have something worthwile to read.

  8. Is there a copy of this on your site at all? I just recently discovered your work and have been reading most of your fics and this sounds amazing.

  9. Looks awesome! I love checking out your site and seeng what you’ve been up to. :-). I’m gonna head over to rough trade to take a gander at this one!

    • That was from November. It’s gone now.

      • I totally did not read the date…or the last comment before me… but i’m glad i missed them cause i’ve been looking through rough trade. The writing tips section is very cool. Among other things. 🙂 Thanks for responding!

  10. Pretty please post this on ao3 or here pretty please with chocolate on top

  11. Are you still working on this?

  12. I can’t remember if I ever read the first draft/beginning of this but it sounds pretty amazing and funny as heck. 🙂
