6265[META] Research issues for writing x-fic....
- Oct 24, 2005Greetings, gang. I'm in a quandry.
I've enjoyed the hell out of reading fanfic this summer; sort of
takes the edge off jonesing for X3 to be released. But now I need
some answers/help on these topics:
* is there a list/forum/whatever to help in researching X-details?
For instance: I have read 3 different fanfic comments about how much
adamantium (by weight) Logan is carrying around inside him. I can't
recall that 'that' specific detail is ever mentioned in the movies,
so I'm guessing that all those references are either assumed by the
fanfic author, or alluded to in the comics somewhere. Having NEVER
read an X-comic, I have no clue, but I'm a stickler for details.
* I have found a lot of disrespect for "Mary Sue" characters (some
deservedly so), and yet I've really enjoyed a few of them. I realize
that a MS is not in line with this list, since it's Movieverse, but
I'm looking for a general overview of fic-writers on well-done MS's.
I guess that's enough to get me started. Any and all feedback on
these topics is greatly appreciated, and if you don't want to reply
on-list, please get back to me at wolf755@... (where you are
much less likely to get lost in the typhoon of Yahoo! bulk mail that
I delete unread).
