This is the first time someone completely bypassed my LJ to do it though. Because LJ is like that town in Cars now. *sad face*
Also, when I say old fic, well, mine are *all* old. Urgh. I might be working on that. Maybe.
So my kids are no longer the wee Romanitas they were when I first set foot in fandom. They're both teenagers now. As they were helping me set up for dinner, the oldest noticed the music I had on.
"Hey, nice dinner music you've got going on there, Mom. Is this your jam?" *smirk*
[Instrumental Big Band is on in the background]
"It's research," I said.
"No!" *blink and pause and then smile* "Are you writing again? That's awesome!"
"I might be. I haven't gotten that far yet."
"OMG! Steve/Bucky! It is, isn't it?"
"No. Maybe. Yes. It's complicated."
"Complicated? Everyone and their mother is doing Steve/Bucky. Steve/Sam?"
"It's complicated. And maybe a crossover. I'm jinxing it by saying this much."
"Oh yeah, I know that one."
And then the younger one said, "Hey, I got three paragraphs down the other day..."
Yes, dinner conversation at my house. *facepalm*
