I’m so predictable.. but.. you want smut prompts, so.. Niall/Surana, when she finds out she’s leaving for the Grey Wardens, Niall wants to give her a really good send off. :o
So hey, remember all those months ago when I did a writing giveaway for a follower milestone? I finally finished the first of those stories, Sakuratsukikage’s request for Steve and Peggy working together on a mission. Rated G-ish, a little bit of battle and a whole lot of UST. Excerpt:
The map was the first thing Peggy saw every time she walked into the room.
Admittedly, it was difficult to miss: the map was huge, overhanging the edges of the conference table, and you moved about at your peril for fear of catching a corner and knocking it askew. Still, even had the map been the size of a postage stamp, it would have filled her vision and taken primacy in her thoughts. This map, once dotted with dozens of miniature flags and wooden tokens, now nearly empty, was the key to winning the war. But one of the locks was still missing; how were they to open the last door if they could not find it?
“Agent Carter? You planning to join us?” Peggy started and looked up, across the table at Colonel Phillips; he glared at her, leaning forward with his hands on the table. Lost in thought, she had somehow managed to miss the room filling up with people: not just Phillips, but Howard Stark, lounging up against the wall, half-a-dozen SSR agents, and next to Phillips, Captain Steven Rogers, his friend James Barnes a few steps behind him.
Steve Rogers. He half-caught her eye with a shy smile; she wanted to smile back, but instead she forced her attention to Phillips, straightening up and locking her hands behind her back. “My apologies, sir. I was just thinking.”
“You can think later,” Phillips barked. “Right now we’re debriefing the last mission, and I need you to pay attention. Rogers?”
This is just so great—it’s exactly what I wanted, action focusing on Peggy’s badassery and her talents in a really realistic way, but also including a lot of Steve and stuff about their relationship and the feelings and tension between them. It’s just great, and I loved all the little details so much. Wonderful stuff, and I feel so, so lucky to have won. Thank you! :D
