this is incredibly silly i apologize

I’m about to DM a Pathfinder campaign in a fantasy noir setting and decided to draw up one of the reoccurring NPC’s. Gretchie Lowtop is a private eye detective who comes across the main cast a lot as they take on their own cases. She’s overactive and playful (a little malicious too) but a brilliant mind underneath her childish exterior. During her time in the GSPD she was known as “The Shark of Grand Spear” for her ability to hunt down and take out criminals, all while wearing a wise sharped tooth smile (Rumor still has it that she’s half demon). 

anonymous asked:

So in Foodieverse, do Tony and Steve ever get into this huge blowout fight? If so, what do they fight about and who apologizes first?

I keep trying to figure out how to answer this and I think the answer is “If they do I’m not gonna write it.” :D 

I mean, probably they do. People in relationships have arguments. Steve is incredibly stubborn and can be a little high-handed, and Tony especially in foodieverse is short on patience and long on bullshit. Chefs work in a very high-stress environment with very long hours, which can make anyone excitable. 

But Foodieverse at heart is a silly story, and that’s intentionally so, not self-deprecation; you can be silly and still be meaningful, which is what I wanted. For all the drama I put into it, and it’s real drama which I commit to, it’s still a stone skipping on the surface – it’s the USA Network Show of fanfic, a place where everyone is essentially happy most of the time. So if there were a big blowout fight it wouldn’t be something I’d show on the page, it’d be something referenced by Natasha, like “That one time Steve and Tony almost broke up over how to hard boil an egg”. 

(Top three contenders for the fight: how to hard boil an egg, the ease of cooking rice on the stove top, and the viability of no-tip restaurants.)

I’m bad at writing fights, especially super emotional ones between people in relationships, because I find it deeply unpleasant – the fact of it happening AND having to write it. I don’t like emotional fights or confrontation; they’re necessary to the narrative sometimes, but they’re a chore, and I don’t find catharsis in them. (Some people do and that’s ok, it just speaks to different tastes.) So I never write them unless I do find them essential to the narrative, which is a lot rarer than most people think. :D
