talktooloose: (Bobby/John Where)
Title: Days of Becoming, Chapter 22 - “In flagrante delicto”
Author: Talktooloose
'Verse: X-Men movieverse
Warnings: Explicit sex, swearing,
Betas: [livejournal.com profile] lux_apollo, [livejournal.com profile] mofic and [livejournal.com profile] kuriadalmatia in spirit.
Disclaimers: Marvel and 20th Century own the X-Men but we make them do more interesting things; and we don't mess with continuity every time we need a new EVENT!!

Series Summary: This novel focuses mainly on the paths Iceman and Pyro take on their way to adulthood and how they discover and deal with their love for each other. It is a novel about what Joni Mitchell calls "the dream's malfunction" and how we can learn to make our own dreams when our heroes fail us. Other X characters (including ones from comicverse and elsewhere) and OC's play prominent roles and the action begins before X1, continues through the events of X2 and X3 and concludes in the aftermath of that movie.

Previously in Days of Becoming: Everyone has found their way to Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters: Bobby Drake from his safe home in Boston, John Allerdyce from the streets of New York City where he was a runaway and a hustler... all the other mutants kids along the paths of their own destinies. And now Mike Haddad and Jubilation Lee have arrived, having survived a run-in with anti-mutant vigilantes. The mansion is a refuge, but within its walls, passions are raging, doubts emerging.

Betas: [livejournal.com profile] kuriadalmatia and [livejournal.com profile] lux_apollo. Thank you for making me a better writer.
Disclaimers: Marvel and 20th Century own this stuff but they need us to make sense of it.
Notes: Rayen is liberally adapted from a character in Grant Morrison's 616 X-Men run.

This chapter was supposed to be easy—just a transitional bit between more dramatic sequences—but it turned into a beast (and no, Hank is not in it).

Unreserved and slobbery thanks to Lux and Kuria for insightful betas and brilliant suggestions. Bobby's Halloween costume is thanks to Lux and Kuria suggested one of Sam's lines as well Charles' unique memento. In addition, they helped me stay on track and true to my tale. Words fail.

Title: Days of Becoming, Chapter 8 - "Measured Response"
Author: Talktooloose
'Verse: X-Men movieverse
Warnings: Swearing, I think. It means nothing to me, so I don't really take note. Bubbling sexuality. Implied use of hand lotion as a sexual aid. Bad puns.
Series Summary: This novel focusses mainly on the paths Iceman and Pyro take on their way to adulthood and how they discover and deal with their love for each other. It is a novel about what Joni Mitchell calls "the dream's malfunction" and how we can learn to make our own dreams when our heroes fail us. Other X characters and OC's play prominent roles and the action begins before X1, continues through the events of X2 and X3 and concludes in the aftermath of that movie.
Chapter Summary: The characters react to the shooting in Pasadena. At the mansion, they plan action; in Boston, a disillusioned Mike meets an interesting girl; at the mutant youth meeting in New York, Bobby makes a bold (or is it foolish) move. Bobby and Kitty wonder what's up with all the spandex.
Betas: [livejournal.com profile] kuriadalmatia and [livejournal.com profile] lux_apollo. My betas' feedback really pushed me to clarify both the action and the character intentions here. Humble thanks.
