It has a title now.

"Building Forces." It's a little awkward, but it's about construction and power exchange, so I think that'll do.

It's 24.5k words now, and I've finally reached the sex scene! Lol.

I mean, there's sexually charged stuff in several of the kink scenes, but none of them have anything remotely like actual sex.

There's this idea that kink *is* sex, that kink acts are sexual and that they always proceed from or lead to sex, but it's really not remotely true. For example, one of my favorite kink play partners is somebody I feel zero sexual chemistry with at all, but he's so damn good at the other stuff, and so that's the way we play, purely on a topping/bottoming kink level, and on a friendly level, with nothing sexual about it at all.

He likes to say that sex and kink are like chocolate and peanut butter. They pair so naturally that nearly everybody is going to put them together at some point, but there's no reason you have to.

But anyway. This story has shenanigans with Hela inheriting the Asgard Construction Co as a side plot, and the main plot has whipping, using claw toys, electroplay, double-teaming tops, master/pet submission, and now finally some sex.

It's certainly not going to be everyone's cup of tea, but I do think some people are going to love it. We'll see, I guess! I'm going to try to finish it up today. So I might start posting it sometime this coming week.

I do wish I was more confident in the "voice" of Loki and Thor. I'm neither bombastic nor full of amusing quips by nature, though, so it's hard for me to really get into those over-the-top voices. Especially as so much of the subject matter doesn't really suit those tones? I don't know. I'm still not super confident in this fandom at all, but on the other hand, given a few things I've looked at recently while poking around the tags that people seem to love, it may not matter that much. Good gods some ridiculous nonsense is popular for heaven knows what reason. (Oh, sex. Sex is the reason. Right. :D )
