After reading the instructions on how to post a story on XMMFF I
decided to devote one whole message to notes. Not that I have a lot but
it'll make it easier on me when I'm trying to keep track of sections
posted. I'm posting the 'notes' section and Part One. If they are too
hard to read, let me know and I can reformat. Any comments, questions,
money, job offers, chocolate, etc....can be sent to e-mail addy located
just below. Thanks!
Title: Oh, The Irony
Author: Amy Denton
Summary: What if...? Bobby 'The Iceman' Drake is betrayed by another
student at The Xavier School and nearly pays with his life.
Rating: PG-13. Some mild violence at the end of the story.
Archive: Yes, please. Just tell me where it's going.
Notes: This is a story that came from an image of Bobby walking down a
road in the middle of nowhere in the middle of December. It grew from
that. All the medical information contained in this story has come from
the websites I will list at the end of the story. The portable oxygen
machine Jean uses in this story is a real machine used by the U.S.
Coast Guard and search and rescue groups. It's called a RES-Q-AIR
(Model 1000). The information on the machine will be listed at the end
of the story as well. (I don't want y'all to know what happens before
you read the story. ;-)
Acknowledgements: I want to thank my beta reader Sunshine for reading
and asking 'What happens next?' I also want to thank my second beta
reader Julie for making sure I hadn't wandered from the plot too much.
And, finally, I want to thank Stan Lee for creating The X-Men and Brian
Singer and everyone connected with the movies for giving us a such a
great world to play in.

returning him. ;-) I'm poor, please don't sue me.
