[fic] in deep with you darling, MCU, Clint/Darcy, 1/4

Chapters: 1/4
Fandom: Thor (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel (Movies)
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Clint Barton/Darcy Lewis
Characters: Darcy Lewis, Clint Barton, Jane Foster (Marvel), Erik Selvig, Phil Coulson
Additional Tags: Post-Movie(s), First Kiss, First Meetings
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?

Thanks for playing along, anon!

13. What’s the best writing advice you’ve ever come across?

Anne Lamott’s “shitty first drafts” mantra. I remind myself that all the time, both for professional writing and writing for fun (so, really, yes, ALL THE TIME.) Just get the words on paper/screen and then deal with how to fix them, because if I try to fix them first, they never get written. Srsly. Shitty first drafts.


23. If you were to revise one of your older fics from start to finish, which would it be and why?

There are 2 of them, one a very old popslash Justin/JC (Moment By Moment) because I let a beta talk me out of my original ending (it was very sappy, which she objected to, but looking back, I think I could write it now to still be the original end and not be over-the-top sap); and the other is a Supernatural RPF from a Harlequin challenge (Jeff/Jensen, Silver Star.) I was super-late in finishing it for the challenge deadline and I think the sex is too generic and I kind of skimmed over the external pressures and issues that would have affected them in any kind of a committed relationship. I mean, I mentioned them, but I could have developed them more and I was literally falling asleep from how late it was while I was writing the sex, so I know it could be better and more reflective of who they were, both together and apart.

24. Have you ever deleted one of your published fics?

No—at least not intentionally. (I will not vouch for accidentally losing things in transitioning from mailing lists to website to lj/dw to AO3, or in not properly tagging things so that they are lost to the wilds of lj, but I’ve never consciously deleted something.)
