Been laughing about this one ever since Saturday: “Well I can’t throw out Scott can I now Charles?” -Erik From a very funny fanart comic strip created by seadeepspaceontheside. Because tumblr is kinda weird about links, here it is again just in case.

This is one that’s stuck with me even though I can’t really remember what the story itself was about. (It’s a long story! I remember some of it!) But I came across this story after a long stretch of feeling kinda bummed out by *destiny* in fictional universes, and how *difficult* everything always was, and […]

I haven’t read the whole series, but I did read the first one and quite enjoyed it! Sometimes you just want an ‘X-Men: IN SPACE’ fic, right? Space Jam, by Pangea Author Summary: Prince Charles Xavier is Deputy Commander of the TEF Heartsteel and the newest mission they’ve been assigned starts out less than desirable […]

In honor of all the great X-Men fic recs starandrea has been posting lately, here’s a Monday memorable quote from the post-XMFC era: “I wasn’t *hiding* it from you. Honestly, I didn’t know for certain until yesterday, which I think we can agree was bad timing and not the sort of thing one springs before […]

fathers and sons, by M_Leigh (Post-Days of Future Past) Hank’s POV on re-starting the school, and how much he is 10,000% done with Charles and Erik’s ridiculousness. “He actually had said that, was the thing. “Look at what he’ll force you to wear if you join his cause,” he’d exhorted, shaking a newspaper at them.

Huge thanks to starandrea for coming up with a link to this fic! The Cult of Good Use, by siarade (In which Cable and Domino bake cookies at the X-mansion in the middle of the night, and then have a cookie dough fight.) QUOTES! “The cookies attacked. We were forced to defend ourselves.” “Well, see, […]

movie review: X-Men Days of Future Past

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

Okay, I’m not totally sure about the handwavey “science” of this movie, but it seems like a silly thing to get hung up on. Because basically this movie was for Raven to get to have a hero’s journey, for Erik and Charles to finally acknowledge their epic love, and for Logan to watch the whole […]

why I love fanfic (reason # eleventymillion)

Saturday, May 12th, 2012

In particular, comics fandom fanfic. Because comics “canon” tends to be so wonky anyway, there’s just so much wiggle room. You want someone to have a twin? Done! You want someone to be a telepathic shapeshifting clone from an alternate dimension in the future? Done! I love comics fandom fanfic because it’s really easy to […]
