I’m really excited for Captain America 2 coming out. It occurs to me that there’s only a month left. I’ve gotten the impression that it’s going to be good story, and the conspicuous absence of the one factor I was prepared to be disappointed about gives me some hope that maybe even that won’t be an issue. I'm looking forward to seeing it in a big group of friends. And whatever else, I’m looking forward to gazing upon some lovely, lovely Cap beefcake.

The one thing I’m potentially disappointed about— and this is a really silly, tiny thing —is that my little fan fiction I finished last November may be rendered non-canon.

As you may recall, I wrote a short, extremely sappy story of about two and a half thousand words about the meeting of Cap and Peggy in the modern day after he wakes up in New York. I think I did a pretty good job of capturing the characters and the tragedy of the circumstances without overdoing it, so I’m pretty happy with it. It’s a scene I’ve really wanted to see, as I’m a big fan of the 'ship.

But I think that moment may be actually depicted in the upcoming movie. I believe they are having Hayley Atwell reappear to play her character at advanced age. I’d be happy to see it, as my interest in it was what drove me to write the story. But it will have the consequence of making my story non-canon, and in fact unnecessary. I’m weirdly sorry about that.

Ah, well. It’s better to have the films have more content that I think is good and interesting. Maybe we can make a game of seeing how close their version is to mine, how good a job I did at guessing how the encounter might go. That would be neat, especially if I get it right. :-)

If you’d care to read my fic before it is rendered obsolete, check it out here on An Archive of Our Own.

Sympathies. Reminds me of my Girl Genius LARP, which had already been rendered out-of-canon by the time it actually ran. (Not that I'd had any illusions that it would hold up in the long run, but still...)
