Title: A Distraction of Ice and Fire
Series: Overprotective Criminals 'Verse
Fandom: CW's The Flash
Pairings: Barry Allen/Mick Rory/Leonard Snart
Warnings: Established relationship, polyamory, violence, relationship troubles, past child abuse, mention of panic attacks
Summary: After the reappearance of the Man in Yellow, Barry's distraction with getting ever faster leads to Len devising a distraction of his own.
Disclaim Her: Not mine.
A/N: This technically stands in for s1e10, Revenge of the Rogues. And I wasn't going to write anything more for this AU – as mentioned in the last A/N – but my muse handed me a scene (which actually ends up glossed over in this) and wouldn't let me sleep until I'd scribbled down a number of potential ideas for this. Damn him.
Yes, there's going to be more after this. The third fic is waiting to go through a reread, and the fourth fic is plotted out and just needs to be written. Gods help me.
This one is in Len's POV, because Barry is so very busy with other things. Also, this is Len's terrible idea. (istf, Len)
Many cheers again to StillNotGinger10 for playing beta reader and just generally egging my muse on.

But the hubby's feeling much better so that's good. And I got this week's novella into POD format, got the cover and blurb done and the Ebook is about 50% finished. Should be able to get it all wrapped up tomorrow and then upload it in the evening.
I also managed to get some writing done. Padma and Jaden have packed up Jaden's stuff, other than the food in her fridge, and Padma is dismayed at how barren Jaden's apartment was. Next chapter they'll arrive at Padma's place and Jaden's going to be dismayed at how tiny it is. If very nicely decorated.
And then it'll be sleep in the same bed time. XD Followed by househunting and eee, I realized on the drive home that I can have the 'looking for apartments / houses together being mistaken for a married couple' thing. AND I can have the old fan favorite of curtain fic.
Yes, I get to write the girls going curtain shopping and arguing about their relationship by arguing about which curtains to get, cheap and disposable or durable and expensive. *squees*
I looooove curtain fic. XD
Goals for tomorrow include, of course, writing more of this so I can get to the curtain fic and sleeping together, exercises (which I did bad on today), making the hubby's delayed birthday dinner (cake is baked but not frosted), and getting this week's novella finished and uploaded everywhere.
Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!

I got this week's story into preliminary format and created a cover for it. It's focused around a solar eclipse which is kind of awesome with the solar eclipse coming up. I even found a good piece of art that conveys a lot of the feel of the story. Made me happy to find it.
Steps are way low but hey, that's life. I don't much care. I should get my exercises, of course, but I haven't yet today.
I got 2200 words written on the novel. Jaden and Padma will be sharing an apartment because Ravinder, the Date From Hell, was not just a jerk, he was a con artist using a faked relationship with Jaden to convince people to fund his move to Phoenix. Full on cheating them out of tons of money. So yeah, Jaden is going to be staying with Padma, sleeping in her king-size bed, because Padma has no couch for Jaden to sleep on.
Oh, shucks! How terrible. *grin*
Yes, I'm having far too much fun with the story.
Goals for tomorrow include breakfast for dinner, exercises, getting the POD version of this week's story done, writing another chapter of the novel and taking care of the hubby.
Off to bath and bed for me--goodnight everyone!
