beatrice_otter: Mystique in X-Men gear from First Class (Mystique)
Okay, I just saw this and I enjoyed this.  I would like some fic recs, if anyone has them.  In particular, I would like Mystique fic, or fic about the new timeline (especially anything after Logan woke up).

Angel is on the run as the Brotherhood breaks down after Erik's capture. She goes to Darwin for safety, but the cops and a bounty hunter are closing in. Despite her separatist stance, a few good people are willing to help her.

For the prompt: Angel Salvadore: Hugs. Gen or any relationship is fine. I want to see Angel survive Days of Future Past, and maybe, I don't know, get some hugs from Raven.

Great fic, capturing the characters and their world very well.

beatrice_otter: Elizabeth Bennet reads (Reading)
[ profile] rarewomen is open, and there are a lot of great fics from a lot of great authors!  Here are some of my faves:

Free To Choose.  Her memories define who she is, her choices define who she will be.  (Sharon Agathon)

As a Queen, Sufficient.  Kendra, debriefing after her first trip to Sunnydale.

A Ladies' Day Out.  The impact of unregulated collection on the draconic biodiversity of the greater Ankh-Morpork region by Vimes (née Ramkin), S. Presented to the Ankh-Morpork Dragon Fanciers Society, Grune, Year of the Reversed Ptarmigan.  Hypothesis: poachers can be firmly deterred by a gumboot to the ear and some stern words, by Jove.  (Sybil Ramkin, the Emmas, Sacharissa Cripslock)

Doctor Who
Human Behavior.  The TARDIS learned a lot from her time in a human body; that doesn't mean she knows how to put a human together again.  (Idris, Tardis)
Cold Hands, Warm Heart.  Jenny finds a Silurian warrior behind the house. Then she puts the kettle on.  One of the Jenny&Vastra stories I have been craving.

Star Trek TNG
Shadow-walking.  Ro Laren and Deanna Troi undertake a secret mission on a matriarchal world.

Vorkosigan Saga
Five Strays Elizabeth Naismith took in (and One That Got Away).  Dear Cordelia, I'm sure I don't need to tell you that Miles is a charming and intelligent young man; I've been enjoying his company immensely. He's made plenty of friends, and taken to the social opportunities at school with a great deal of verve. (For more details, please see the attached disciplinary reports from Principal Hatter.)

X-Men First Class
A Piece of Her Mind.  Agent MacTaggert really shouldn't be in this cocktail bar. And she really shouldn't be talking to two wanted criminals. But they seem to think there's a way for her to get back the memories she'd lost the previous year, and she can't help but listen.  (Moira, Angel, Mystique)

Remix Recs

Apr. 23rd, 2012 08:43 am
beatrice_otter: DS9 wormhole (DS9)
The main Remix just went live, and here are some recs.

First off, the story written for me is awesome, you should all read it.  What You Know (The Devil in the Details Remix) is a Deep Space 9 story about the whole Sisko family dealing with the knowledge of what the Prophets did to ensure that Benjamin Sisko was born.  A very haunting look at the things the show didn't consider which takes my story and amps it to the next level.

One Who Lights the Darkness (The Bedtime Story Remix) When you're the slayer, what do you do when there's a monster under your bed?  Remix of 5 Scoobies Who Didn't Curse The Darkness And On Who Lit A Candle.  I love the different reactions to monsters and beds. On its own, it is a great remix. It's also a great remix concept, taking the whole Scoobies-at-night idea and giving it a twist.

The Captain and the Man of Iron, a Saga by Thor Odinsson, beta by Loki Laufeyjarson (Steve Rogers Must Die: the In Tony Stark’s Arms Mix) The title says it all.

Buffy/Doctor Who
Watching the Watchers (the Oncoming Storm Remix) Ethan Rayne and the 9th Doctor.  A storm, a Doctor, and a judicious application of chaos.

Harry Potter
About Her (Candlelight Mix) .  Luna had always taken a shine to fantastic things, and Cho definitely counts as one of the most fantastic.  I love the way the author writes an adult Luna, it's just pitch-perfect.

Stargate SG-1
The First Rule of Anthropology (The Missed Chances Remix).  Nine years after Daniel leaves the SGC, the Stargate goes public.

Star Trek
Second Star to the Right (The Chartered Remix) Spock was drowning and Nyota didn't know how to save him.

X-Men movieverse
Homeschooling for Mutants (a Midnight's Child Remix).  Magneto sets Pyro a reading assignment. Unlike past literature assignments, it turns out to be relevant to his interests.  I love the way the author shows us the power of literature, and why all these people are doing what they do.

There are many other good stories, so if crossovers are your thing, check it out!

beatrice_otter: Mystique in X-Men gear from First Class (Mystique)
What would be a good mutant name for a guy who can hear/understand animals?  Something that a teen might think was cool but that a grown man might be slightly embarrassed about?
beatrice_otter: Mystique in X-Men gear from First Class (Mystique)
I've read several XMen 1st Class MPreg stories lately, and I have noticed two baffling things:
  1. Charles is always the one knocked up.  I get it, because he is the more 'nurturing' guy and the fandom woobie, and yet the fact that Erik has a life that would be so much more difficult to handle with kids would seem to make this a more interesting scenario.
  2. Erik is always fiercely protective, and wants to  be involved.  Yet, in comics canon, Magneto abandoned his two children (Pietro and Wanda Maximoff, both mutants) to go off and be Magneto.

beatrice_otter: Mystique in X-Men gear from First Class (Mystique)
So, I finally saw X-Men First Class.  It's a great movie.  I get the shiny-slashy-Erik/Charles.

But.  What I really want to read is stuff about Raven/Mystique.  For example, forget all the "Charles and Erik have a regular chess match every week for decades."  What I really want is "Mystique comes to Westchester regularly to talk with Hank about being mutant and proud, and also being blue."  Because seriously, there are so many issues there.

Also, I'm assuming that (given the skin color and the powers) that Nightcrawler is the son of Mystique and Azazel?  How did that happen?  How did he end up in the circus?  Or an AU where Mystique realizes that she can't raise a kid while on the run, that she wants him to have a stable home life, and so she sends him to her brother.

Or a futurefic set after X-3 where the X-men realize that Charles left a good chunk of change/a small house on the grounds/whatever to Mystique and/or Erik, and someone then has to go find them and tell them and figure out how the heck this is going to work.

Or a fic about Raven's life after she came to the Xavier mansion.  How did Charles convince his parents?  What was Raven's relationship with them like?  How was that similar to/different from her biological parents?  Did they know she was a mutant?  Was she treated as a member of the family or as a charity case? 

Also, I'd like something--anything!--where Darwin didn't die.  I'm glad he was a hero, and died for a purpose, but I can't help noticing that the only hero to die in the whole movie is the token black guy who doesn't even make it to the final climactic battle.

Surely, in all the floods of Charles/Erik, there is something like this?

(Also, I have this scene in my head where Phoenix didn't kill Professor X, she sent his consciousness back in time to the middle of this whole mess, and the first thing that Professor X with decades of experience and hindsight does is tell his sister that she is beautiful no matter what face she wears, and she doesn't have to hide around him, and she is beautiful both inside and out and mean it, not as a way to try and manipulate her to stay but because it's a regret he's always had, that he didn't say it when he had a chance.)
