TITLE: Days of Becoming, Chapter 24 - "The Rain in Hadrian's Soul"
WARNINGS: Swearing, duplicity and self-deception, sex-talk
BETAS: Mofic and Lux_Apollo
DISLAIMERS: Marvel and 20th Century own the X-Men, I own my original
characters, you all own your own lives.
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: A girl named Rogue has arrived at the
mansion and chaos has followed. Bobby has pulled back from John in
the wake of Scott's discovering that they were doing it. He has been
growing closer to Rogue, much to John's consternation. John and Bobby
are still doing it. Magneto is in a plastic prison. Are his followers
going to remain quiet? Mike and Andi's mutant youth tour is a go.
