The Snark, It Hounds Me
So I’m working on an M/M submission with a metric assload of snark, sass, and banter (working title “A Boon by Moonlight”) for Evernight’s Romance on the Go line, and I reach the hot steamy sex scene where my hero has just finished doing wonderful things to his partner’s ass and pulls out lube for the main event.
His partner, a very impatient Sidhe noble, basically says “Why did you stop and what the hell is that?”
Rather incredulously, Hero inquires whether Sidhe Noble ever uses lube when he has sex.
Sidhe Noble huffs and says he’s not a barbarian, he always uses saliva or sometimes oil when it’s handy.
Hero, utterly appalled, mutters, “Yeah, welcome to the 21st Century.”
No, I cannot get away from attitude, even in a sex scene. But that’s all right, because it is done and clocks in at 11,115 words. I’m gonna let it sit for a day, then edit and submit on Friday. Weelah!
