*grrrr of frustration*  
The characters are being stubborn.  I keep telling them their first time together is not going to be some deep, meaningful affair.  They're too damaged for that.  The trust isn't there.  No naked vulnerability or shared secrets, please, just hot, angsty sex. 


I've already had to delete the same section of paragraphs three times.  I'm saving it for later, follow up fic, because eventually they'll have these moments and conversations and intimacy.  Just not now.  Uncooperative wretches.

If it's their first time together then it needs to be hot, fumbly sex:
Oh, shit sorry.
You're being to rough.
Oh, sorry.
You're on my hair.

Romance needs more fumbly reality sex scenes. I've been advocating them for years :P

LMAO! I had a conversation with some girlfriends (writers & readers) once about this, and I don't remember who said it, but the gist was, a good sex scene (in romance, erotica, whatever) is about the fantasy, the ideal of what we want sex to be like IRL. It needs a few realistic/gritty details to make it 'real' but too real and the scene loses something.

Or that's the conclusion we came to. I don't remember all the discussion. I'm pretty sure alcohol was involved, LOL.

Is this the SCC one? Because if it is, don't forget the looming ghost of Kyle, omg, and maybe have Cromartie around the corner so they'd have to shut up and just do it. Hee.

Indeed it is! And no, I have not forgotten the ghost of Kyle, that is for sure! LOL.

They seem to be listening better this morning, and acting more like the guarded, damaged people they are.
