1. So I'm surfing a lot of Pepper/Tony movieverse fic because LOVE and also? LOVEEEE. And I just ran into a massive, hugely rec'ed (according to delicious tags) fic that's five parts and I was like, "oh what's this?" and it's a genderswap that turns the pairing into slash and casts Pepper as male.

Which I suppose could be, I don't know, kind of interesting and certainly looks to be for some who loved the fic but for myself, I just ..no.

(A fic where Pepper woke up as a dude one morning and she and Tony were already dating and Tony would have issues, or Tony wouldn't have any issues at all and Pepper would have issues with how little issues Tony had and comedy ensues - that would've been something I'd be really interested in. But a fic where Pepper is, from the get go, male. I don't know. It just rids something essential from the dynamic. And gets rid of a Significant Awesome Canon Female, which is sad because it's so rare. But whatever, I won't begrudge people who dig it, not my issue.)

2. But a fic I really, really enjoyed so much and that was friggin' brilliant in all accounts is this one:

For today or the rest of my life by [livejournal.com profile] calicokat - Iron Man movieverse, Pepper/Tony, Pepper/OMC, NC-17. No spoilers for Iron Man 2.

This is deliciously long, Pepper point-of-view fic that just delves deep into her professional and personal lives and looks at her job and how she values it. It has her characterized with this totally awesome no-nonsense attitude with regards to Tony, while still being believably in love with him, and carrying out a relationship with an original character. I normally dislike OC's but I recognize they can work in context and here it really works and serves a purpose towards the whole story. Also? It gets pretty friggin' hot in places.

Even though the story has been made AU by Iron Man 2, it is SO SO SO worth reading if you like Pepper or like the pairing or just want some really good Iron Man fic.

3. I kiiiiind of want to talk about Pepper in Iron Man 2 now despite the fact nobody will ever probably read this but me.

i am cutting this for definite spoilers. )

3.5. YAY IRON MAN 2 WAS SO AWESOME YOU GUYS.
