For [personal profile] ranalore: Is there a Steve/Bucky vid or fic you'd prefer to watch or read that you haven't run across yet?

You know, that's actually a really hard question to answer. I had to think about it quite a bit, because I tend to either make the vids I want to see most or write the stories with the ideas I like best. I mean, this is one of the few fandoms I've been in where there's a lot of good fic that's pretty representative of what I'd like to read, which is rare since I'm so fucking picky, but I still have to write the ideas I like most of all more often than not because no one else is doing them. And I hate that; I'd much, much rather read something than write it myself.

Someone wrote a story for the big bang that's about the Ghost Army in WWII and I look forward to reading that (though I'm always trepidatious about reading historical pre- and war-era fiction in this fandom because so many people get so much of it wrong and that just drives me batshit, especially the war OMG it's horrible). I'd been contemplating a story based around the Ghost Army, and it's nice to know now I don't have to waste my time writing something no one will read. I'd love to have someone do the WWII fic with the bonus appearance of Band of Brothers' Easy Company so that I don't have to spend so much time with my references and plotting and shit, but I know it's not gonna happen. And I've never in my life written a true AU, but I think all the time about how fucking cute a Desk Set AU (minus all the gross period politics) with Steve and Bucky could be--Steve in the head researcher Kate Hepburn role, Bucky in the computer guy efficiency expert Spencer Tracey role, lots of banter and sexual tension. If someone wrote that I'd be so happy.

I wish someone else would make the vid I was talking about the other day! There've actually been a lot of vids to songs I wanted to see or themes/stories, since Winter Soldier even came out, but I haven't liked most of them--they've been wildly popular, but for whatever reason I thought they were not done well and that was really disappointing. I know that these days using the same song as someone else isn't the bad form it used to be in olden tymes, but I just can't see doing those songs or concepts again, so I'm always going to be a bit disappointed by that--it's like the thing I want is so close and yet so far.

Awww man, but I would LOVE to see your take on it. And what's that fandom saying, more fic is like more cake? Everyone likes more cake! Which I know can be hard to swallow (hah) if my fic on Topic A is way less popular than BNF's fic on the same thing, but for my part I tend to gather up all the fic in favourite tropes and for favourite topics I can find. and I think your WWII period Stucky fic is so much better than nearly anyone's anyway

Oh, man, I would love your take on the Ghost Army! American history, in particular, is a field of interest to me, so I always appreciate how much attention you pay to the details. Also, I adore Desk Set and that AU idea sounds SO AWESOME OMG. Though I suspect you mean little!Steve and I picture big!Steve, and I am reminded that I never did write up the thing I was going to write up about that topic from way back when, but anyway....

I have no vidding skill, so I'm always interested in hearing vidding people talk about the process and if there are ideas you'd prefer to watch as opposed to vid, just like as writers there are things we'd rather write than read.

Thank you so much for such a thoughtful answer!
