Oh dear lord I'm excited to read whatever that's gonna be from! Can't wait to get some context for that scenario. I don't know what that whole fic is gonna be about, but that should be the summary.
I don’t actually know what happens in the story after this scene, but it is a story in which Steve Rogers, former artist for the Captain America comics (a canonical fact!), meets Tony Stark the Iron Man cosplayer (also a canonical fact!) at a con where Steve has been persuaded to sign autographs. Steve is surprised and flattered that people still care about his old comics. Tony, who is both a nerd and an epic troll, takes this opportunity to introduce himself to Steve – they both have secret identities to the public at this point in canon but not to each other – by means of trolling him with said sketch request.
“Do you take commissions?” Iron Man asked, and, wow, he had the vocal filtering going, just like Tony. Steve wanted to compliment him – he was just like the real thing – but he had no idea what to say that wouldn’t give him away, because of course it wasn’t as if the entire world had intimate knowledge of Iron Man.
Steve reached for another Sharpie and uncapped it. He flipped open the issue, looking for a good place to sign, but Iron Man was still talking, even as Steve’s brain finished catching up with the question.
“I’m interested in commissioning a sketch,” Iron Man said. He leaned forward, edging into Steve’s personal space, splaying his gauntleted hands on the table. “I’d like you to draw me wearing only a tiny thong, with Captain America staring at my mostly-naked body in horror.”
Well, it wasn’t the strangest or most obscene request he’d ever gotten. But still, that was a no. That would have been a no even if he did do commissions, which he didn’t have the time to, what with the Avengers gearing up again; he wasn’t actually a working artist anymore.
Steve’s mouth was moving on autopilot, and he gave him the same answer he’d given everyone else with inappropriate requests of a similar nature. The same thing he’d told the flirtatious Nomad, actually. “I’m sorry,” he said, by rote. “I’m not comfortable with that.”
He looked away; he put his head down, focusing on the comic issue on the table. Iron Man’s shadow over the pages shifted as he leaned in more.
“Yeah,” Iron Man said, a drawling reply, but one that sounded almost amused. “Just imagine how I felt.”
At some point I’m gonna figure out what happens after this and write the rest. I’m sure Steve’s gonna end up drawing Tony something. Maybe not that, though.
Another awesome group I got to shoot at Dragon*Con? This Avengers group that thatblackwidowgirl put together. Definitely one of the most fun shoots I got to work on, mainly because everyone involved was just so pleasant to be around.
With Costoberfest kicked off to a great start, we bring you our first Costoberfest Spotlight on Jaycee Cosplay!
