I went from "Yay! to "Agh" so fast.

I was pleased when I saw an e-mail regarding the Green-Wood Cemetery photo I sold to be a book cover for Grave Landscapes: The Nineteenth-Century Rural Cemetery Movement by James R. Cothran and Erica Danylchak, saying they wanted to use it, because I can certainly use the money. But the e-mail came from the cemetery itself's vice-president of development and programming and isn't offering any money to occasionally use the photo in their marketing, just attribution, which is only one step above "the least we can do." Usually I say no to people who want to use my work free with only attribution--like hell "publicity for you" actually has ever meant any real thing for my photos when there's no pay--but I don't know if I can ask for money from the people who own the location I shot, especially given that this VP had an e-mail conversation with the person who bought my photo for the book to find out how to contact me. (See how much good my credit for the photo listed inside on the cover jacket did me.)

This is a catch up on the icons I have done for challenges, plus extras where I made more than I needed…

As always, take if you want, text can be added (or probably changed) if you want, or you can just (I hope) enjoy the pretties...

Title: Old Comics
Series: The Seduction of Steve Rogers
Fandom: MCU
Rating: Gen
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Note: A month-long series of drabbles follows the odd courtship of Steve Rogers and Tony Stark in a loosely connected fashion. I've been reading the 1943 comics at Marvel.com. You should give them a look if you get a chance.
Summary: Tony pulls out the vintage Captain America Comics.


Tony invited Steve over for a movie and pizza night. They watched Superman from the 70s with Christopher Reeve.

“I read Superman comics when they first came out. I wanted to draw comics after I’d seen them,” Steve told Tony as they ate.

“Have you ever seen Captain America comics?” Tony asked.

“Seriously? God, no.”

Tony hurried to find his and brought them out to show Steve.

“God, these are embarrassing.”

“I was so crazy about Captain America,” Tony blurted out.


“Yeah, my father talked about you all the time. No one could live up to you, but I wanted to try.”

“I was a dumb kid from Brooklyn, thrust into the war with little training, but I learned from men like your dad and Peggy.”

“Did you love Aunt Peggy?”

“She was wonderful, so beautiful and smarter than anyone I knew.”

“Did you love her?” Tony whispered this time.

Steve looked at him. “I did. I do. But we weren’t meant to be.”

“I loved Aunt Peggy when I was little because she was your girl,” Tony said, voice still a near whisper.

Steve laid the comic book on the coffee table and pulled Tony into his arms.

This was such a good book! I’d even go so far as to say this is my favorite so far.

spoilers )

This book was so good I’m giving it five hearts.


(This book counts towards the ‘Children or Young Adult’ square on my 2019 Book Bingo Redux card.)

I’ve earned my first bingo with this square fill!

[community profile] questionoftheday asks: What is your comfort item?

My answer:

Hmmm... I have a stuffed kitty that I used to sleep with, but the one thing that will calm me when I'm nuts is Star Wars - episodes 4-6. I was very ill in the 90s and spent a lot of time on the sofa and in bed...I had a video tape of all three movies that I'd put in and run the whole series... and they calmed me and helped me sleep.

1. Did you enjoy your senior year of high school?
I didn't really enjoy any school. ever. I was bored to tears until I got to college.

2. Did you have a senior trip (high school) and were you able to go on it.
Nope and Nope.

3. Was graduating (from either high school or college/university) a big thing with your family or just another day?
My parents were quite proud of my academic achievements and were proud of my graduating. I was the first and still one of only 4 to graduate from college on both sides of my family.

4. What were you looking forward to the most after graduating from either high school or college/university? Being done...

5. Knowing what you know now, what advice would you give your graduating self? Get drunk, sleep with men and women, burn bridges, raise hell... don't be such a good girl.

But Why?

For whatever reason, the most random selection of songs ran through my mind out of nowhere today.
  1. "Smooth Criminal" by Michael Jackson

  2. "Walk the Dinosaur" by Was (Not Was)

  3. "Rhythm Nation" by Janet Jackson

In other personal music news, I only just realized that this lyric in Weird Al Yankovic's "One More Minute" was a case of Getting Crap Past the Radar--"'Cause I'm stranded all alone in the gas station of love And I have to use the self-service pumps..."--but, to be fair, I was much younger when I first heard it.

Summary: Evie continues to work through dealing with re-learning how to deal with her ridiculous brother.  (He has ADHD, though it's not like they had that terminology back then.)
Word Count: 2219
Rating: Teen
Warning: Very short you might almost miss it mention of abuse.  Because I don't read Ethan Frye as a good father.

He's difficult, but he's her brother and she loves him dearly. )
