It’s TRUE! @devikafernando and @avenger-nerd-mom are working on a collaboration together involving Professor Hiddleston and Professor Evans! The two are rivals at a posh New England university and have no idea they both have taken interest in the lovely Thalia Bareo. She’s a grad student with interests in language and history; a sassy full-figured Puerto Rican girl from Chicago.
Story updates will be posted on Wednesdays and Sundays. To whet your appetite, here’s a poem author Devika Fernando wrote for the fic (from Thalia’s point of view).
The Best of Two Worlds
I need the moon to light the dark
And ignite in me that secret spark
I need the sun to brighten my days
And be my strength, my saving grace
I need the rain to nurture my dreams
I need the wind to swallow my screams
I need the frenzied summer and the balmy spring
The colors and calm cold that fall and winter bring
A man who makes the good girl want to sin
A man who accepts all my flaws with a grin
A man who takes charge and surprises me forever
A man who makes me whole when we’re together
Someone to lean on when I don’t feel strong
And someone who recognizes my inner song
Someone who takes away all the hurt but is free like a bird
Someone who knows my worth and hangs onto every word
I want it all, why do I have to choose?
If I give all of myself, what’s there to lose?
The tantalizing flavor of tea made just so
The reassuring bitterness of coffee to go
A smart cat that keeps me on my toes
A loyal dog that takes away my woes
Heated kisses that make me see stars
Lingering touches that leave no scars
A bruising grip and a gentle caress
Comfy shorts and a gorgeous dress
Forbidden moments I’ll never forget
And easy decisions I’ll never regret
The security that common interests breed
And the right answers for my devious need
I want to be cherished but be my own girl,
I want to have the best of two worlds.
