One of the panels I enjoyed most at FOGcon was "Mutations, Their Gifts and Betrayals: Embodiment in the World(s) of the X-Men" (not even because one of my friends proposed it)--it was actually really interesting. Being me, I made more than a few comments during the discussion (though I virtuously did not bring up mpreg as Charles Xavier's secondary mutation, I'm quite virtuous), and afterward, when we were walking back to the BART, [personal profile] troisroyaumes and [personal profile] epershand were both like, "Dude, I didn't realize you'd read so many X-Men comics!" and I was forced to explain that no, I haven't read hardly any of the comics (except for Marvel 1602, which [personal profile] copperbadge rightfully and hilariously savaged in this recent post), just the Wikipedia articles, at a scary and obsessive depth.

"Well, you sounded like you knew what you were talking about!"

That is my stock in trade. (Though I did watch almost all of the X-Men: Evolution cartoon, which was actually pretty good.)

I found this highly amusing at the time, and still do; the point of telling this story now is to put up the links to my two current XMFC/X-Men WIPs:

Both of these are mostly written; I just have to write some last few bits and then wrangle some betas. Which is to say, they are WIPs now but they will be finished soon, and I will post the links again, and update the master post, when they are completed.

I enjoyed the X-Men Evolution cartoon. Mostly because it showed that things are complicated and peoples beliefs can change...I think. It was years ago that I watched it, but I remember I thought it was much better than the original X-Men cartoons of my youth.

I'm going to sit here and feel pleased at the thought of you carefully not saying that mpreg is Charles's secondary mutation. And possibly I will take just a little credit for helping give you that idea. :D

Oh, how I wish I could have been at that panel! I would have written you little notes about Charles and his mutant uterus. (That is the best sentence I have written all day, for the record.)

I wish I could have attended FOGCon! I would love to meet you (and others), and that panel sounds like great fun.
