Still working my way through the Friending Meme, but welcome aboard!  Add or prune however you wish, I'm not going to be upset if my journal is trimmed--I keep a minimal reading list because if there's too much to read I end up not posting.

One of the things I've been working on with Thassalia is a de-aged piece--this is her brainchild but I've been running with it since she's dealing with a ton of RL.  Teenagers, man.  She left me with teenagers.  Brilliant, messy, violent, horny, desperate, driven people who are already neck deep in their arcs even though they don't know it, only suspect it.

The writing mix shuffles between Natasha, Nick, Bruce and Tony.  And before I started this project, I would not have paired 15-year-old Tony Stark with "Bad Girls" by M.I.A., but there you are.

*sigh*  Speaking of which, I really need to tackle the Nick and Natasha steal a Cessna scene.  Without going down the rabbit hole of small aircraft research.

My husband is currently learning to fly a small aircraft, if you have research qs that you need answered. XD He says he's not very good on it (he normally pilots 767s, he just wants a certain license that he can get privately this way). :)

Also, hi!!

So he says that a small aircraft would probably be able to fly for about four hours BUT no decent pilot would just up and do that without checking out weather and alternate airports.

He also says refueling is incredibly simple, like filling the gas on your car. Except instead of a gas stand, you have a fuel truck to drive up to the plane. So you'll probably have to hotwire that truck!

You can move the seat forward and back in the cockpit. How depends on the aircraft- some have electric adjusters, some are the old pull-lever-and-scootch.

Hope that helps! :D
