Stupidness, Sickness, and Marvel Slash @ 10:14 am

I am such a dork.  I hurt my knee falling out of bed last night.  Sheesh.

Also, God got me.  I boasted on-line about not catching cold due to my massively a**-kicking constitution, and guess what?  I suffered all night long with a cold that seems to have taken up residence in my immune system.  Bleah.  

However, in the good news department, class went really well last night, I thought.  Everyone stayed awake, which is always a good sign, particularly since class doesn't start until 7:30 pm.  Also, I had no problem getting volunteers for critique, which is almost always a positive indicator of class participation.  

Also, despite not having all of "Winter Soldier," I read the Death of Captain America (#25) last night and the follow-up issues to the "present."  I've become a raving fan of Ed Brubaker (the writer).  Also, I have a theory. 


Oh, and the Marvel slashers are so right.  I wasn't convinced about the likelihood of Iron Man/Captain America, but Steve left Tony a personal, hand-written (eyes-only) letter upon the event of his death.  It looked short.  I totally think it read:  "No matter what, I'll always love you."  Because Tony looked stricken.

I didn't get much work done on my own slash, but I've got about an hour before I have to go pick up Mason from school.  I still have to think of an ending for this thing (which is hard on a lot of levels, because just like in "real" writing I think it's important to have an emotional crescendo as well as a definitive and satisfactory ending to the "action" -- which in this case is sex.)  You know, writing slash might actually be good for me if only because I always have SUCH trouble ending anything -- novels, short stories.  Maybe I can actually get some practice in with slash.

Okay, I'm off to do it.... as it were.
