So I've been working on this crazy crossover fic idea for the past few months. I'd reached somewhat of a block with it when I realized I couldn't write movieverse!Tony Stark worth crap. So how did I deal with this issue? Decided to use another canon version of him. Since the other series I'm including in the crossover is an anime, I decided to check out the anime version of Iron Man.

The ratings for it said it was "decent." It was only 12 episodes long and $12 on Amazon, so I said, "Hey, why not?" It starts out okay. I really like the idea of Tony Stark moving to Japan and having awkward cultural adjustment moments. The second most important character in the show is even a decently (in my opinion but keep in mind some kinds of sexism can soar over my head) characterized female. The series follows a monster-of-the-week formula for each episode, but even then the story still progresses. I liked the fights, too! Even if they were kind of dull as far as anime goes.

My fic idea was actually going pretty well. Things tied in even better than I thought they would. And then... I watched the last 4 episodes.

The last four episodes pull a bunch of plot points out of NOWHERE. Well, one of the bad guy reveals made sense. That was fine. But then they kill off my two favorite characters! For not very good reasons, either! And then ending... just... UGH. SO MUCH UGH.

One of the characters killed off was a major character in the fic I had in mind. So now I'm all demoralized. Oh sure, I could just make it AU and ignore the last couple of eps and it'd be fine. But still... just ugh. Knowing what happens to those two characters at the end just kind of kills my motivation to write. I can't remember the last time a character death annoyed me so much I started crying bitter tears of rage. Whyyyyyyy?!?!?!?!?!

This is the first time I've written anything over 3000 words in six years, too. Oh, well... I'm waffling over whether I should even write it at all. Then there's finding a beta and... yeah. So much I'd need to do.

But omg, screw the Iron Man anime. Seriously. It did NOT need to end that way.
