I started the idfic summer planning to write a lot of short and silly BDSM porn. Instead I've just written 8k of mostly-gen fencing fic. I feel like I could have predicted this outcome.
Anyway, it's about one third silly roadtrip stuff, one third intense fencing, and one third Villard and Suba angst. Apparently this is what my id wants - hopefully it's readable. (This fulfills the roadtrip and fencing AU squares on my idfic bingo, even though it's not an AU. There's a lot of fencing.)Change of Engagement
By the Sword
Characters/ships: Max Suba/Rachel, Alexander Villard, Danny Gallagher, Erin Clavelli, Jim Trebor, Johnson, Tanos, Hobbs, and Tatiana. (A note
on minor characters if you need to remind yourself who they are.)
Wordcount: 8200ish words
Summary: A year after their big confrontation, Suba and Villard run into each other at the same competition. It doesn't go that well.
A/N: There's a lot of fencing stuff in here - while I've tried to make it accessible to the non-fencer, I've also put together a few notes on some of the more obscure points, which you can find here
Also, this fic comes with a soundtrack, because idk what I'm doing with my life. You can get it here
