FIC: "King of Night Vision"

Title: King of Night Vision
Author: [ profile] musamea
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: I don't own the X-Men and I am definitely not making any money off of them!
Summary: Just because you can't see something doesn't mean it isn't there. Seven times Scott knew about the Phoenix.
A/N: Written in the 2007 [ profile] xmmficathon for [ profile] likeadeuce, who requested: "As the bombshells of my daily fears explode, I try to trace them to my youth" ("Galileo," Indigo Girls). You can ignore X-3 events, but I'd love some hints of the Phoenix-backstory as told in X3. What did Scott know and when did he know it? Except for Jean's movieverse backstory, I play fast and loose with the characters' ages and origins. "My" Warren was one of Xavier's original students.

FIC: Burning in the Garden of Gethsamene

Title: Burning in the Garden of Gethsemane
Author: Musamea
Fandom: Firefly
Pairing: Mal/Zoe
Warnings: Adult (it IS a one night stand challenge, after all); spoilers for the Big Damn Movie.
Summary: "She's been the one constant in his life, and damned if he's going to let her down now." Moves back and forth in timeline, but includes spoilers for the events in Serenity.
A/N: Written for [ profile] inlovewithnight's "Mess Up My Head, Mess Up My Bed" one night stand challenge. The title and opening quote are from "Full Moon" by Robert Hayden. Zoe's Chinese myth is the story of the Moon woman. Finally, Tom McRae's Black Heart Rodeo is, in my head, the soundtrack for this fic.

Fics and ficathon, not in that order

As I noted yesterday, [ profile] summers_fling is open! And stories are still trickling in. I'd been planning to make a recs post after I finished reading, but seriously, I have wanted to put EVERY SINGLE FIC I've read so far on it. So go, start at the top or bottom and read your way through. I promise you won't regret it.

I wrote "Confessional" for [ profile] sionnain. It's AXM Scott/Emma, pre-Gifted, and there's poetry and anger and desk!sex. ;)

And the awesome [ profile] resolute wrote me "Hellfire", a X-Men/Battlestar Galactica sort-of-crossover-sort-of-AU. I don't know a thing about BSG, but I still ADORED it. She really captures how love of reading can play out in a child's life and the human need for heroes that we all share. It's fantastic and clever and if you're at all into X-Men OR BSG, go read it! (contains spoilers for BSG's "Maelstrom")

Well, I slept the sleep of the dead last night -- who would've thought posting day would be so hectic? So it's time to catch up on homework and then go to class. Have a lovely day, flist!

sort-of-fic: "Twenty Things"

I was recently thinking about how we all have our own personal canon. It's not so much what we pick and choose to utilize from actual canon -- i.e. writing character Y into movieverse or X3 denial fic (and doesn't that verge on AU?) -- but rather scraps of backstory that we created for some fic or another that somehow then fixes itself into our minds as something-that-actually-happened.

I know that I write most of my stories along a certain continuum. Even though all non-series pieces can be read as stand-alones, practically all my works theoretically exist in the same theoretical universe. My theoretical universe, with authorized canon trappings. (Of course, there can be overlap of one kind or another. I delight in going through every. single. special feature and listenting to every. single. commentary of nearly all the films that I watch [you can see what a potential black hole of time this could be, especially when it comes to something like LotR], and a lot of times it's the deleted features or the director musing aloud about an abandoned plot point that sets the gears in motion. Part of "my" X-verse backstory involves the abandoned X2 plotline that Hank's secondary mutation was triggered by Charles in Cerebro. See?)

I think it's the might-have-beens that add personal flair and flavor to a piece. They'll probably never make it into a story all their own, but somehow they color every other piece of writing that you do.

So, in no particular order, here are my Twenty Things that Might Have Happened at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters )

What are yours?

New XMen Comm *pimps*

[ profile] penknife started [ profile] xmenflashfic, a comm with weekly prompts for short XMen fics. (And we're allowed to play fast and loose with the term "flash fiction," since there's no real length limit.) Check it out, join, write, read... play! You know you want to.

I wrote (gasp, I know *g*) Scott-fic for the first prompt. Feedback is loved. Check out the other stories too. Yay for opening up the flist the last few days and finding two or three new XMen short fics each time!
