My goodness, I don't know what happened to my brain! The last time I
remembered to post here was back in October when Chapter 25 of my fic
went live! Since then, I've posted up to Chapter 33. Below, find the
link for the latest chapter as well as links to the homepage for
earlier chapters. Sorry, mailing list!
TITLE: Days of Becoming, Chapter 33: "Buggered by the Biggest
Stevedore in the Port"
WARNINGS: explicit sexuality, drug use, self-delusion
BETAS: mofic, Kuriadalmatia and Lux_apollo. You each challenged me
uniquely and made the chapter infinitely better
DISCLAIMERS: Marvel and 20th Century own the X-Men, I own my original
characters. Ownership is illusion.
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. This novel does not
take X-Men Origins: Wolverine as canon.
PREVIOUSLY IN DAYS OF BECOMING: John has joined Magneto's
Brotherhood. After catching him performing oral sex on a "brother,"
Mystique and Magneto have sent John undercover. He is to get into the
bed of a Taylor Kincaid, a closeted Washington consultant working for
Congressman Kemper of Idaho, and extract information on government
anti-mutant initiatives. Back at the School for Gifted Youngsters,
Bobby finds himself full of doubts. Although he and Rogue are
supposedly the number one couple of the school, he finds himself
thinking constantly about John and their time together. Doug Ramsey
and Jones have formed a somewhat shady underground business called
Janus Dog Node, helping various organizations and individuals hide
money and information on a private, secure Internet simulacrum.
