Rating: PG13/R, language, violence and perhaps adult situations but no
Archive: Eventually on my newly transferred fic archive site at
www.wolverineandrogue.com/fyrdrakken/ also to the WR Fanfic Archive and
X-Men Movie Fanfic Archive when completed. Others just ask first and
permission will no doubt be given!
Classification: Angst, comedy, character development, implied smut.
Series: An alternate pathway striking off from the end of "Practice Makes
Perfect." Reading "Practice" at least through the part currently
appearing at my fic archive would supply all background that might be
desired for the given situation.
Disclaimer: Lots of corporations like Fox and Marvel, and people like
Bryan Singer and Hugh Jackman and Anna Paquin, hold more rights in the
characters and settings I'm playing with than I do. But I'm even more
broke than Marvel, so I'm not worth the time and trouble of suing... The
only "profit" I'm getting out of this is getting the demons out of my
head without resorting to my family's traditional substance abuse, serial
marriages and/or self-mutilation...
Feedback: Questions, comments and snide remarks directed to
> will receive guaranteed responses. Messages sent to
a list may go unnoticed indefinitely, me being on so many now that I've
had to go "no mail" on most of them. ;-) As an Elitist Fic Bitch in good
standing, I welcome constructive criticism if there's a problem in
something I've written I *really* want to know about it so I can fix it!
Thanks: To all those whose feedback on my prior stories (and repeated
requests and demands for sequels!) have given the incentive to continue
to lose sleep slaving over an overheating laptop! And again to jenn for
her betaing and AIM encouragement...
Regarding the supporting characters: I have no problem with creating
original characters as I see fit. The problem arises when I try to create
original *mutant* characters, because I just cant seem to make up the
freaky powers and physical characteristics seen in the Marvel Universe
let alone the cringeworthy codenames. For the purposes of this story, I
therefore did a bit of online research on Emma Frosts former students,
the Hellions. The characters Ive used were lifted right from the comics,
although in the cases of two blokes who were killed off before their real
names were mentioned I chose to invent given names rather than continue
to refer to them by their gak! codenames. (Can anyone even tell me
what "Bevatron" *means*?!) Anyway, I blame the comics for the ridiculous
characters found herein. (The good bits are of course mine. Though
Catseye seemed potentially cool in the comics...)
