Hey, Ladies!

If you like twisted fairytales, check out the trade paperbacks of Fables, published by Vertigo. Awesome stuff! I have the first five volumes, plus the hardback "1001 Nights of Snowfall", which was given to me as a Christmas present.

magikfanfic, I especially think you would like these if you haven't read them yet. ^_^

News on the third X-Men movie.

Real comic thoughts to commence again soon. Like when I have time to read some comics again. ;)

We should probably set memories or tags up on this community. But we need to establish some set categories for things.

Different ideas could include:

  • Publisher aka Marvel, DC, etc.

  • Character, which would give the Guthries their own memory/tag section though that's probably called for anyway as much as teza and I talk about the Guthries

  • Review for thoughts on the comic series/runs/TPB, etc.

  • Essay for the crazy research driven things I've been known to write



Umm...so what I'm really asking for is help and suggestions about using memories or tags and what kinds of tags and memories to use for it.

Please comment with any suggestions you have. Or IM me.

But please don't make my send the evil, baby aliens after you.

Huh? I expected Jay to be moodier.

Scott still has a stick in his ass only now he's knocking boots with Emma.

Emma needs to realize that Dani's grudge against her (caused by the multiple kidnappings, tortures, mindwipes, etc.) is justifiable and maybe work to reconcile it rather than agitate Dani.

Rahne should grow up and stop macking on students even if she is "nineteen." (Which lets us know that between like 1981 and 2004, only six years have passed since she's thirteen during most of the New Mutants run. This in no way establishes a solid Marvel continuum or even a proper time configuration system, but it's something.)

What the hell happened to Dani's leadership skills? She used to be a lot better with them. Also? Where are those funky semi-mystical powers of hers?

Hellion--boy deserves a bitch slap.

Too many students. OMGWTFBBQ! It's like LSH only with even more characters running around that never get to speak.

Also the Hellion/New Mutant thing? Been there, done that to death. I like the idea of smaller, more manageable groups but, come on, inherent rivalries aside, do something new with it.

Agree? Disagree? Think the book should be blown up?

Hey all,

First post here. I have been disillusioned by all the rewriting and crap going on with my favorite comic books. Any recommendations on some good ones??

More bitching about the (lack of) Guthrie continuity:

magikfanfic: But still...gah, I don't know. It seems like the Guthries are the Marvel loophole. Need a blond mutant? Grab a Guthrie.
magikfanfic: Need a nonblond mutant, you can still check out a Guthrie on short term
magikfanfic: But don't explain anything. Ever.
magikfanfic: Because as long as we reuse, we never run out of Guthries.

In discussing an X-Men RPG that we both play on, teza and I had a conversation regarding Guthries that I thought would be a good thing to drop in here.

teza: I'm trying to decide how I want Jay to react to all the gay. I think he might be a little 'heeby' about it. Like, y'know, finding out someone's gay? Be all, "Just so you know, I'm totally straight. I like GIRLS." in that hick boy sort of way.
teza: But not TOTALLY hating on it -- just a bit uneasy.
magikfanfic: Yeah. That's probably the way the Guthries would react. Well, now, Sam would be all, "So...um...gay?" And Paige would wave it off but really be a little concerned about the whole thing.
teza: Hee. Sam. He's so cute.
magikfanfic: In his dopey, big-eared way.
teza: I thought, briefly, about apping him, but I'm scared to take on chars with major backstory.
magikfanfic: The way these mods are, you could probably slice and dice your backstory. And I can always help you as I've been reading books with Sam in them for ages.
teza: Heh. Yah. I don't wanna monopolize the Guthrie's tho, now.
magikfanfic: Well there are as many Guthries as fish in the sea so don't worry about that.
magikfanfic: Even with a dead husband, Mama Guthrie just seems to have more. I think they grow like corn.
teza: I know! Jesus!
teza: For a while, it seemed stable at 9.
teza: Then all of a sudden, Sam said he had 9 siblings.
magikfanfic: Sometimes I think Sam is dumb and forgets his own family.
magikfanfic: Paige very carefully never really mentions numbers thus allowing for the random Guthrie gene pool fluxes.
teza: Hee hee.
teza: There's, what. Paige, Sam, Jay, Jeb, Melody, Twins, and a girl, right? That's 9, innit?
teza: Fuck, no, that's 8.
teza: Who'm I forgetting?

Research done via the Guthrie family spotlight over at Uncannyxmen.net because they're better at it than I am.

Guthries:
Thomas (father, deceased) and Lucinda (mother, living but with varying age discrepancies)

Children: (with an age range that knows not who was born first)
Sam (m)
Paige (m)
Jay (m)
Joelle (h to all knowledge)
Elizabeth (possibly a mutant in alternate universes but not established in canon yet)
Melody (enrolled in Xavier's?, m or h?)
Jeb (h or m?)
Lewis and twin sister with no name (m or h?)
mystery child #10 from Sam's poker game...no know real knowledge of who this might be.
