Title: Not to Touch the Earth

Characters/Pairing: Angel Salvadore, Darwin, Kraven the Hunter, Sarah Gail Bradley, Destiny

Fandom/Universe: X-Men: First Class series

Rating: Teen

Word count: 4000

Warnings: None

Notes: Thanks to [personal profile] st_aurafina for the beta. Written for garrideb for Secret Mutant Madness! Title from The Doors.

Summary: 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.

My [community profile] femslashex fic arrived! It's a fantastic transposition of Jubilee and Clarice's comics backstories into movieverse, and deals with Jubilee's reaction to Logan's memory changes at the end of DoFP and what that meant for the Jubilee & Logan relationship. Clarice's AOA backstory completely works in the less fantastical movieverse, which is impressive in itself, but it also means character development for Creed, and I have to say this is the first time I've ever felt anything positive towards any of the non-AoA versions.

What You Need (1644 words) by heeroluva
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: X-Men (Movies), X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Clarice Ferguson/Jubilation Lee
Characters: Clarice Ferguson, Jubilation Lee, Victor Creed
Summary:

With both the past and present rewritten, Logan loses more than he ever knows. Jubilee finds a confidant in the most unexpected place.

I'm cleaning out a lot of comics while we move house and I would rather pass them along to fellow fans if anyone wants them. Happy to send them anywhere for free. Feel free to let other fans know about this if you think they'd like anything.

Today's offerings:

X-Men: Emperor Vulcan, five issue miniseries, complete. Great for fans of Rachel Grey, the Shi'Ar, or wacky X-Men space adventures. Also good for fans of Vulcan but I don't know if there are any.

Vertigo: Shadows Fall, six issue miniseries, complete. Very early 90s Vertigo style urban horror, nice art.

Summary: It's September 1947 and Hogwarts is finally getting back to normal after the disruptions of the war against Grindelwald and the Muggle World War. Transfiguration teacher Albus Dumbledore has been searching for students who have missed out on starting at Hogwarts, such as Charles Xavier and his sister Raven who have been hiding in the US, and refugee Erik Lehnsherr. Grindelwald's supporters are still strong, though, and it's going to be a turbulent first year for Charles, Raven, Erik and their friends.

I am so looking forward to ALL THE FIC! It's one of those terrific fannish movies that keeps its main story together while leaving lots of delicious gaps for ficcers to develop.

All the things I was worrried about were in fact awesome, the time-travel was great and Mystique is my hero.

That said, does it count for the Bechdel Test if a female shapeshifter is impersonating a male character and speaks to a female character about something other than a man?

I'm the X-Men reccer on [livejournal.com profile] sequentialcrack this month, so I thought I'd post a rec round-up at the end of each of the four weeks. This week, I also made a post to [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon to rec one fic for each of the women in X-Men: First Class, so there's a grand total of 13 recs below and there'll be more every week until the end of February.

Women of X-Men:First Class

The moment I walked out of X-Men: First Class, I got tremendously excited about what fandom was going to produce, and all the ways that the flaws of the movie were going to be kicked around the block and back again. And I was right.

Sharon Xavier: The Secret Life of Sharon Francis by Katbelle )

Edie Lehnsherr: Festival of Lights by isabeau )

Angel Salvadore: How the West Was Won by Kaydeefalls )

Moira MacTaggert: Reinvention by labingi )

Raven: art by forgerness )

Emma Frost: my imagination is rattling in its cage by lapetitesinge )

Ensemble: And your heart is fierce by carefulsubtlety )

For [personal profile] medie at Fandom Stocking. Drabble.

Hundreds and Thousands

Irene will meet Raven in an elevator in New York City; she'll meet Raven on her birthday in Salzburg. She'll meet Raven two weeks earlier in a dirty café in Sydney; she'll meets her four years later when Raven is an orderly at a hospital while Irene's ankle is broken.

Twice, she'll never meet Raven at all.

When the timelines finally settle and a moustachioed Raven asks her to dance at a charity ball in Bonn, Irene smiles so hard that even the cool, controlled Raven catches her expression. Both women laugh as they waltz for the very first time.
