Tony meets handsome hunk Steve at a party, makes a wildly inaccurate assumption, but ends up with what he wanted anyway.  I think this stands as the only fic I ever wrote in one sitting.  It ended up remixed into a story where Steve is actually a hooker, and they fall in love, but this one is strictly identity porn high jinks.  

“Just…” and Tony could practically hear Pepper attempting to rub the tension out of her temples. “Just so we are clear,” Pepper began, trying to sound business-like, as if this were just any other phone call about stocks or production or whatever it was Pepper was usually blathering on about, “At the gala event for the Wounded Warriors Foundation, of which Stark Industries is a major donor, you met one Steven G. Rogers, Captain, U.S. Army Special Forces, one of the most decorated soldiers in all the armed forces, one of the handful of living Medal of Honor recipients, the man People Magazine dubbed “Captain America” in their front page story about his battlefield heroics that saved multiple lives, which went on to detail how his spare time is devoted to, and I’m quoting here, “providing art therapy to troubled and disadvantaged youth from the Brooklyn, New York area where Capt. Rogers grew up,” and you mistook him for a high-priced hooker and then proceeded to proposition him.”

Tony paused, breathing in deeply. “Well, when you say it like that, it just sounds bad.”

So as of the current Overwatch PTR, typing gg ez into chat will cause the game to pull a sentence from a pool and cause you to say that instead.  The current lines are:

  • Great game, everyone!
  • It was an honor to play with you all. Thank you.
  • Good game! Best of luck to you all!
  • I’m wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you all for playing with me.
  • C'mon, Mom! One more game before you tuck me in. Oops mistell.
  • Gee whiz! That was fun. Good playing!
  • Well played. I salute you all.
  • I could really use a hug right now.
  • It’s past my bedtime. Please don’t tell my mommy.
  • Ah shucks… you guys are the best!
  • I feel very, very small… please hold me…
  • For glory and honor! Huzzah comrades!
  • Mommy says people my age shouldn’t suck their thumbs.
  • I’m trying to be a nicer person. It’s hard, but I am trying, guys.
  • Wishing you all the best.
One Piece Manga Sets Guinness World Record for Copies Printed for Comic by Single Author
Eiichiro Oda's series now has 320,866,000 copies printed worldwide in 30+ countries

The official website for Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga announced on Monday in Japan that the manga has set a Guinness World Record for “The most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author.” As of the end of December 2014, the manga has 320,866,000 copies printed worldwide.

Oda commented on the award through a written statement: “Thank you for this certification for the Guinness World Record. Manga is an amusing way to pass time, but when I receive reports that say ‘through One Piece I made friends,’ or 'through One Piece I found my sweetheart,’ I am really happy.” He continued by saying, “I feel like this record number has the possibility to bring the same number of people together. I will not forget my predecessors in the manga world, the colleagues whom I work with, and my readers, and from now on I want to continue to draw a work that will not shame this record.”

A ceremony was held in Tokyo on Monday to present the award. Oda was not in attendance, but Weekly Shonen Jump editor Yoshihisa Heishi attended on his behalf.

Oda launched One Piece in 1997, and the manga has been published in more than 30 countries.Shueisha released the manga’s 77th volume with an initial print run of 3.8 million copies on April 3.

Weekly Shonen Jump revealed on Monday in Japan that One Piece will have big news in the 29th issue of the magazine, which ships on June 22.

Guy didn’t even attend the ceremony because he would rather keep working on the series, HAHA


Listen to me, you’ve got this dark pit inside you. I know. Believe me, I know. But that doesn’t mean you have to fall into it. You don’t have to be a monster… It doesn’t matter what you are. It only matters what you do. It’s your choice.


The Firelord’s real name has been confirmed! I created the name “Honora” because I was tired of calling her “Zuko’s Daughter” then it became a popular fan name for 3 years. (Thanks, fandom!)

All hail Firelord Izumi!
