I received a lovely comment on this is how the world begins while I was on my work-cation last week, requesting a list of which characters matched up to which fandoms. (I felt a little overwhelmed when I looked at the list, but I've given it a go!)

Also, my apologies to anyone who tried to read the story on AO3 when it was first posted; the formatting was all wonky. It should be fixed now!

Honestly, I thought it would be easier than this. )
Just in the nick of time! With 11 7 minutes to spare, here's my July fic:

Author's Note: Thank goodness for my family. Every day I would ask some weird '80s-related question: "Hey, did people have washers and dryers in their houses in 1981?" "Was interracial dating a big deal in the early '80s?" Seriously, I was born in 1982, and my memories of the '80s are mostly pop-beads and Trapper Keepers, and really nothing at all about the social and cultural environment of California.

For anyone who doesn't know or doesn't remember, Greatest American Hero aired from 1981-83. It was made to be an hour-long drama, but kept getting nominated for comedy awards instead. The plot was simple: a high school teacher (Ralph) was given a suit (by aliens) that gave him superpowers. There was an instruction book, but he lost it. The aliens picked an FBI agent (Bill), who happened to be handy by, to be Ralph's crime-fighting partner. Pam was Ralph's lawyer girlfriend (she helped him with his divorce and custody case for Kevin, his son). Ralph's students were the "special" kids -- the troublemakers of the school that no one else wanted to deal with.
