starlady: Charles/Erik: "Are you ready for this?" "Let's find out." (we are together at last though far apart)

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:
