So I wrote Steve Likes Tony in four days, using Written? Kitten! and e.ggtimer. And what have we learned from this exercise?

Continued from here and going NSFW pretty much immediately; hope that's not too much of a spoiler for you.

Edited, thanks to a comment by [personal profile] bluemeridian, to reassure one and all that Steve continues to like Tony all the way through, though he likes some parts of Tony in a more personal fashion by the end than he did at the beginning.

"Tony," he says helplessly. "What -- I don't understand."

It's like playing that game where you make a move and turn over all the pieces from black to white: all the things that have happened since he woke up are turning over and showing another side. He and Tony have been spending nearly all their time together for months. He's seen Tony's good sides and admired them. He's seen Tony's bad sides and either accepted them or helped him nudge himself out of them.

He *likes* Tony.

"Look here," Steve says. "I know all you people expect me to be like everybody's grandpa, but I never looked down on a man if he wanted to go to bed with other men. Never. It's his business, and that's the end of it. And if you're one of those --" He falters at that, because it runs smack up against all these pictures in his head. Tony at a party with some gal in a fringed skirt, doing a dance that's not too much different from screwing standing up. Tony in a limo with a blonde whispering into each ear. "Or only some of the time, if you --"

Tony smirks at him, and he goes on doggedly: "But it's got to feel different for a fellow like that. Because what I feel when I'm with my best pal and what I feel when I'm with a girl I like, they're totally different feelings."

It works at first, and then it doesn't. He works out more, but it's pretty tough to wear this body out. And anything other than full-out exertion leaves his mind free to wander, which is just what he *doesn't* want.

It's probably bad to wish for another megalomaniac so soon after they defeated the last one.

When Tony comes down to the gym, Steve thinks at first that he'll be a great distraction, but he stays just as keyed up as before. It doesn't help at all. In fact, when Tony wants to spar, the idea just makes things worse. Maybe it's the similarity to dancing? Anyhow, Steve says, "No," really fast, and Tony makes an exaggerated hands-off gesture and says, "Fine, fine, no contact, I get it," and there's something stiff around his mouth like Steve's hurt his feelings.

Steve tries not to think about sex too much. Young men of his generation still considered sublimation to be a positive goal, and Steve has had a lot of practice.

Besides, who's he going to think about?

I want to write a story where Steve really likes Tony. Like, he really really likes Tony. He likes being with Tony. He likes spending his free time with Tony. He doesn't like it when Tony spends time with other people, and if they're not people he approves of, he'll cut them out -- he's good at that, does it with such grace that people go away feeling like something *nice* has happened to them; hey, Captain America noticed them specifically! Captain America has something special he needs done that *only they can do*!

Meanwhile, Steve gets to spend a lot more time with Tony. Because Steve likes Tony.

[this was fifteen minutes on Written?Kitten! as I try to see if I can re-train myself to write on keyboard as well as in longhand.]
