The Persistence of Memory
Summary: It's hard to forget, and even harder to remember. Daphne, on the sidelines, in the game, above the field, but always, always there. Approximately 3300 words.

This needs a good beta, and somewhere I can post it, but here'll do for now. Daphne is the best friend of Justin, who took a bat to the head for being gay at the prom. Brian is Justin's much older boyfriend, Michael is Brian's best friend, Debbie is Michael's mother.

Snippet from the AU which I write but have no intention of showing anyone ever. (In its entirety, anyway.) But I liked this section; Illyana remembers Magneto the best way she knows how. (Spoilers for New X-Men up to the current arc -- I have no idea what issue number, but it's a huge Magneto plot point and if you don't want to know, don't click.)

Finally finally finally managed to finish a semi-decent workable post for 'Yana in XProj, meaning I can stop moping around in guilt or whatever it is that has been spurring on my inertia. Or something. Badly-spelt though she is, I feel a strong affection for little!Magik, which means I am probably playing her too-cute, which is not exactly my aim in life but I shall perservere. I have this feeling she re-enacts X-Men missions with herself as codename: Sparkle Princess or something.

(writing for the kid, as the kid, is hard, though)

Rainbows and puppies and glitter, oh my. I still have a long list of things I need to do for the game, but at least I got the immediate "ahahaha, I haven't posted for a long time" stuff out of the way. Comments and plot stuff tomorrow, I think. My bed is sitting in the corner invitingly.

Possibly due to this, I am writing an NM AU where Magik comes back from the dead. Every X-Men fanfic writer has to resurrect somebody. Even X-Statix resurrected Princess Diana!

... no, I won't inflict it on anyone, I promise.

Sleep + me = the only kind of math I care to know.

I wrote this at Christmas and then conveniently forgot about it, but luckily it is not so much a 'Christmas' as a 'winter', so it's still relevant. Massively out of character Pyro, massively out of character Northstar, massively out-of-character hinted-at slash between the two previous, with cameos by Mystique and teenage!Mirage. Rated PG for bad language, and brought to you by 'D' for 'drivel' and '0' for 'Failure'.

Well, I like it, anyway. Light and fluffy and not actually too slashy, in the way that slashy things go.

Felt like making icons, so made some for soon-to-be-grownup Illyana in XProj. May or may not actually use them, but they were fun!

Edit: Added some more.

Edit 2: And one more, the night's crowning achievement.

River is a drug, a hallucinogen who knows all and sees all and feels all until the world is falling around her in strips of fantastic, glorious light, like the stars or life or something River doesn't know, a rarity in this 'verse but possible, just barely. A place for everything and everything in its right place. River knows all the right places.

Firefly ficlet thing. Definitely not finished. But kinda pretty. I am all about the pretty. Title from Dorothy Parker.

2500 words on Dani Moonstar and Josh Foley. Family, friends, and the one place they all have in common -- Xavier's. I'm kind of fond of it, although I think Jean-Paul's cameo is more in-character than Dani.

Am having a hell of a time roleplaying for x_snowflake because I am a loser who cannot relate to small children without mass media and toys. However, plotting for the Magik arc -- which is so great I wish I'd thought of it, one of those stories, you know? -- is going to be pretty fun, since it looks like the mods are going to let me have my twinkish little way wth magic and teleportation (sans time-travel, obviously).

Although I guess I have to admit that I am not the most twinkish person on the planet. I mean, I can't write super-powered characters very easily, just 'cos I want people to love me and not hate me thanks to my souped-up Ferrari character. But I think having already-established powers will help me not be the anti-twink (which is just as bad as being an actual twink, probably), so probably I will be all right.

I'm writing AUs like crazy lately, to switch topics as I am so fond of doing. Particularly, the FFX AU (which has slowed down considerably in production) and an X2 characters-fall-into-the-AU AU featuring John and the scary future from New Mutants 49.

Have I mentioned that my comic book store has back issues for EVERYTHING, EVER? I mean, like, New Mutants, Excalibur, Uncanny X-Men, Generation X, Alias, basically everything I want to read. For cheap, too -- I mean, popular/famous arcs get up to 12.00 CDN per issue, but otherwise sit at 1.50 or 2.00. Need to go raid them for more after Christmas.

... I mean, they have the DAZZLER series, dude.

Why You Should Never Write FFX Fanfic: Part ICollapse )

There are so many "FFX High School" stories on FFnet that I want to scream. Loudly, and with vigor.
