If we were supposed to sign up for this comm, I think I missed that part. However I do have some from my fic that fits this "In your current WIP, is there a scene where a character states what they believe in? Share it!"

This is from my Iron Man/Marvel Cinematic Universe Pepperony AU fic I will see your nation cast down.

“May I ask what you believe in?”

“I believe in my wife and my kids. I believe in the fields of science that I’ve dabbled in. I believe in mechanics and machines. I believe in the power of my own mind. And although it looks like they might not be able to save my bacon, this time, I still believe in my team.”

Oh and if you didn't figure it out, Tony Stark is the 2nd speaker in this snippet :-)

I am doing well. Finally. HAHA let's see if I can keep it up.

I'm writing for an exchange, and the minimum is 5k, and I just started writing yesterday and I'm at 2k already. But besides the wordcount, I'm really digging the story. :D

short vent, though (more of a flail):

my exchange fic isn't due until July 30 so I thought I had PLENTY of time, but I didn't take into account that my daughter's going to be out of school and then my son will be coming to spend the summer once HIS school is out, so really I only have until the end of the month if I want to get things done. So I flailed a little about that. Thankfully it looks like it won't be a problem but it could have been.

My newest story is going a bit slow, but I think I'm working through it. It's just at a part in it that's leading up to some action, and it's getting all the plot in there I need.

I do have a scene like you're describing, in this story, called "Resurgence." It's kinda long...

“You’re trying to separate us from Torchwood,” Rhys went on, “and that’s just not gonna work. Cause Anwyn’s right: your kids might not be Torchwood, but they were certainly raised that way; and in their turn they brought up their own children with the same mindset. You treat them pretty much the same way you used to those of us on your original team, only they don’t go out on Rift alerts and handle invasions like we did. You never had to send them into danger, and you’ve gotten out of the habit. I’m not saying that’s a bad thing,” he hastened to add, when Jack opened his mouth in what was going to be a rebuttal, “but you’ve given them the same values you instilled in the rest of us, and now you’re expecting them to step back from those values and ignore the fact that something very bad happened to one of their own. You’re telling them they can’t have their own vengeance because it’s too dangerous for them to go after it.”

Ianto hated it, but Rhys was speaking his mind and it was all truth.

That old team – and the teams that came after, until Torchwood became so big it was impossible to – had been their family, and they’d treated them as such. Back then, both he and Jack had believed they would never have blood children together, and they’d thrown themselves into Torchwood and had pretty much adopted every single person they’d recruited as brothers and sisters, and as children. They’d loved and cherished almost every single one of them.

Torchwood had been their lives. Torchwood had been their family.

He could see it, now that Rhys had pointed it out to them. They had raised their children with the same ethics and sense of responsibility to the universe that they, themselves, had felt. It had led nearly every single one of them to become astonishingly brave and selfless adults; of them all, only Cadi could have been said to have rebelled, and yet even she did what she always thought was right.

That had been passed onto the grandchildren, taught as stories of those old teams, and as lessons in the right way to give back to those who relied on them. Even brash, uninhibited Abraham had his grandfather Jack’s moral code when it came to doing the right thing for anyone who would ask.

This didn’t even count what Ianto had told them of dragon society. He’d been certain to teach them all about Pacts, and Vengeance, and the need to stand by family.

In their need to protect their loved ones, they were denying them the very things that made them all dragons.

Even the ones who didn’t have dragon blood in them were the very best of dragonkind. Phillip, Merlin, Henry, Gwaine, Aymara…Rhys and Samara, and the mortal branch of the family that they’d been responsible for. Each and every one of them followed the laws of Ianto’s people, and they did it gladly. Even the Doctor and River, who were just now beginning to truly accept that they were as much of their clan as the rest, despite what had happened all those centuries ago with Ianto and his Vow of Vengeance against the Master.

Wow, what an interesting snippet! I'm intrigued to see how the dragon society structure gets integrated with Torchwood.

Thanks! It's all part of a massive universe I've been working on for years. And the bunnies don't seem to be slowing down any. LOL!

It is almost three in the morning but I just finished my third art piece (as finished as it's going to get, anyway)! One more to go to complete the set, deadline of Sunday!

Made a small fill for the 'paper' prompt, thanks to the suggestions and ideas from some helpful people from this comm; they're very much appreciated!

Also added a bunch more bunnies to the list after finishing a series I binged in four days, whoops, ahah.

Progress: editing, editing, editing. But I've done through chapter 6 (of 15)! Still need to write the second half of chapter 7 (seriously, people, you're going to see me moaning about chapter 7 for the next month I fear).

Here's my snippet of someone stating what they believe in:

"There is already a place for me," he says. "And it isn't here."

Maybe it's never been here, not really. He'd thought it was, thought of Kingsman as a second home and Chester something like a second father. Of course he'd pushed to change things over the years, for new priorities and new techniques. He'd pushed Chester to recruit with a little more diversity, to find new sources of talent not just for the Kingsmen themselves but for the tech wizards, the handlers, the pilots and mechanics and support staff. Of course he'd pushed. But he'd done it all because he'd believed in what they stood for, that they were doing good for the world. He'd believed in justice and truth and honor, in taking care of their own. He'd believed that working for Kingsman meant holding to all of those things.

But what was that worth, now, when Chester had betrayed him?

I just found a fandom comm that's doing a mini-bang for the month of May, which I'm going to use to cross something off my bunny list, because I love nothing so much as I love a deadline.

But I also sat down this past week and spit out 5 fics on a project I'm doing this year (a friend and I collected 52 prompts with the intention of doing at least a drabble a week; I'm behind but I can catch up, by God), and I'm still slowly working on the original novel, so, progress. Slow but extant.

Got my assignment for the exchange I signed up for -- my strategy of playing it safe this year and only offering things that were likely to be pretty easy has paid off! (I usually try to offer fairly broadly for exchanges, and often end up writing something totally new to me as a result. Which is a lot of fun, but I do not have the time to sink into something like that right now.)

Still puttering along on my Big Bang podfics, still procrastinating on my Big Bang fic...

I returned to writing after a week's break. As I realized that my previous lack of motivation and progress stemmed from big plotting problem in my wip, I decided to put it aside and started another one to put some distance so that I could decide if the fic was salvagable.

*pokes head in to consider comm* I stumbled across this today on fandomcalendar (looking through the backlog of posts there). Can't say I'll remember to visit all that often, but it's nice to see people working on stuff. :)

So far I've been pretty good about getting exchange assignments completed quickly (I've got two right now but they're both done!), but I keep accumulating WIPs. Mostly because I write till I get stuck (which always happens as long as it's not tiny), and the only way I unstick myself is through chatting with someone online. All the friends who were helpful that way have either gotten insanely busy with horrible jobs (and signed up for a million exchanges themselves) or dropped off the face of the earth. So I'm stalled on about 8 or 10 of them (ranging from ~2k to ~15k, plus some premise/plot bunnies lurking) and can't get back going again.

Right now I'm waiting to get my Everywoman assignment and write that, and in the meantime I might start plotting out the second in a series I already started (AU for the fan prequel to LOTR called Born of Hope). Or at least attempt to plot out, till I get stuck, as usual, lol. It would also help if I didn't frequently write for such obscure fandoms…
