Written for the Valentine's challenge at its_always_been.
Rating: This chapter, PG-13. Overall, a hard R.
Warnings: Sex, and lots of it.
Summary: Tony and Pepper attempt a "friends with benefits" arrangement.
Author's notes: I don't normally post works in progress, but I wanted to get this in under the deadline. The story is a long one, and is inspired by Melissa Ferrick's "Drive", a song I heard for the first time after luckytohaveher included it in her fabulous fanmix "it's in your frequency."
luckytohaveher also made me this wicked banner:
This story is a bit of a departure from the kind of thing I usually write. One, it's long. I don't normally do sustained plot--snapshots are more my style. Two, there's a lot of sex. I've really only ever written one smutty story before, ever, and there was no actual sex in it, just a lot of talking. So I hope you all enjoy it. Especially you, luckytohaveher , since it's basically your fault I wrote this. Here goes. Let me know what you think.
