Old fic

So, I was going through some old X-Men fic I wrote back after First Class came out. There was one that I remembered posting anon in the kinkmeme that was all about Erik kind of stealing Charles' disability out of guilt and being too stubborn to give it back. I remember writing that one, and it's actually pretty good, but then there's this other one, and it's Charles/Erik and it is kinky as fuck. (by my standards, that is. Not sure how they compare to other peoples's) I mean seriously. And although I must have written it because I recognise my writing style and it is 100% my kink! I have no memory of it. I don't know if I posted it in the meme, or if I there was a prompt and I gave it a go but didn't like the result, or if I just wrote it for the hell of it when I was drunk one night. Now I've found it though, I kind of want to post it somewhere...

There are also a couple of half finished things there too that have potential, I've got a bunch of new ones of them too now. I am overrun by plot bunnies!

Still catching up on the last few years of X-Men comics, reading X-Men Legacy I came across this advert. I kind of stared at it for a second trying to think where I had seen it before, and then I was like "oh, ha!" thing is, there's no mention of the Lost Boys on it, no reason for them to be doing a tribute to the film that I can see, though I don't know what the story they're advertising is about, so it could be relevant. It's just very cool.

Buying comics

Well, it turns out that over the past three or four years, I have missed very little, and a hell of a lot. Comics are like that. Stuff happens, pretty major stuff, but in the end none of it is really that major.

I've got myself almost up to date on Uncanny X-Men. I'm still shaking from the news that the title is ending this year. I mean, I know it's far from the end of the X-Men, and it'll be replaced by something else. Two, somethings else, it seems. But this has been the core X title since the 60s, enjoying an uninterrupted run. I've got every issue from #273. #544 will apparently be the last one. The guy in the comic shop informed me that the team will then split into two, following the two separate philosophies of Xavier and Magneto. Oh, Magneto and Xavier appear to be on the same side at the moment. I have a lot of catching up to do, I've got a bunch of comics ordered that I;m waiting for. That's just Uncanny.

The title formerly known as simply X-Men, which I've got from #1, has been re-named X-Men Legacy at some point over the past few years. I've picked up the latest 5 or so while I was at Amazing Fantasy today buying bags and boards. I need to get all the back issues for that. Looks like Astonishing X-Men is still on the go too, so that needs getting. Then I dunno. I was reading New X-Men too, but I didn't see that. The guy advised me to get the Prelude to Schism mini. It's a 4 issue run, leading up to the Schism that's going to end Uncanny. (Dun dun dun!) I got the first two of those, and they're pretty awesome actually, one focusing on Xavier, one on Magneto. Erik. Max. Whatever he's calling himself at the moment...

So, all good fun. I wish I hadn't stayed away so long...

This afternoon, after going in town, my dad got out all his old comics to be sorted and sold. Talk about a daunting task. We've got Superman mixed with batman mixed with Spawn, Sam and Twitch, Powers, loads of random weird crossover things mixed in. And the guy has no respect for them. Seriously. They were all just shoved into cardboard boxes, not bagged and boarded, just thrown in, wrapped in carrier bags... Some of them are kinda creased up, but he does have some in sealed bags that have literally never been opened, collectors editions, the death of Superman, Clark's marriage to Lois. It's going to take ages to sort through, but I'm quite looking forward to it. I just wish he wasn't selling them. To me, comics are there to be hoarded, stored away carefully and never, ever sold. but then, mine aren't shoved unprotected into Jackson's bags and left to rot in the loft cupboards for ten years either.

I dragged my comic book collection out this afternoon. I'd forgotten how many I have. Enough to stock a small comic shop, if it was one that only sold Marvel, and pretty much exclusively X-Men back issues. I'm considering getting caught up and starting reading them again. It's been about four years. I stopped around the time I started working at the bank, becuase I wasn't in town any more and getting to the comic shop was inconvenient. I'd put it off, and plan to go next week, then next week it;d be raining or something, so I'd wait til next weekend, and so on. In the end I realised I was way behind and catching up felt like too much hard work. Wish I;d done it then rather than now! Oh well.

So, Silver Acre has most of the issues I'm missing. I'm just not sure how things have developed title-wise in the past four years, there's forever new ones coming out, old ones stopping. I think I'll start off with Uncanny X-Men and X-Men, get up to date on those, and then look at what else is around. I was reading New X-Men, not sure if that's still going. And a few other titles that I picked up now and then, mostly just for crossovers...

I'm going to have to do it a few at a time, don't think I can afford to get them all at once!

My dad's going on about selling his collection again. He's got years-worth of Superman issues, he read them all through my childhood. Also Batman, Spawn and Powers. He's asked me to contact Silver Acre to see if they want to buy them. Seems almost sacrilegious to sell comics. You're supposed to buy them, read them and then hoard them! But I suppose if no one ever sold theirs, then I wouldn't be able to catch up
