I've been lurking around my fandoms, looking for new stuff (easy -- many talented folks) and new people (hard -- I am so shy even online), and I found this:

Uncanny X-Force #18: Dark Angel's End (4 words) by sophoslight
Fandom: X-Men (Comicverse), X-Force (Comics), Uncanny X-Force (Comics)
Rating: Mature
Warning: Graphic Depictions Of Violence, Major Character Death
Characters: Warren Worthington III, Elizabeth Braddock, Fantomex, Apocalypse - Character, Psylocke, Archangel, Angel

MASSIVE spoilers for the end of the Dark Angel Saga, but possibly the most perfect thing I've ever watched -- the issue destroyed me, but reading it with music?  I totally cried. I did.  And then I laid on my bed and felt only despair for the next ten minutes. 


In other news,I've decided to do the plus sign for my [community profile] trope_bingo card (you can see it here).  Tropes I will be terrible at: animal transformation, circus, steampunk.  Tropes I already had bunnies for anyway: fuck or die, all-human, locked in.  Free space will either be amnesia or accidental baby acquisition, I think. 


I'm watching The Terminator.  It turns out I've never actually seen The Terminator.  I guess I just assumed I had.  Hmm.

So, I think I went to a circus once, in the mid-80s, but I could just be making that up. So I am brainstorming publicly! In case there is something very not-circusy about Cirque de X-Factor!

The circus is currently being sued by Fox ... )


In other news, uploaded a few more older stories to AO3 today, both in the Young Heroes in Love fandom. I don't blame anyone who might never have heard of it. It's a DC Comics series from mid-nineties, that was cancelled after 18 issues. It had one of the first same-sex couples in comics that I knew of (though, iirc, they literally got together in the last issue). It's never been released as a trade (which is a crying shame).

I was very dramatic in my younger years. While I appreciate my enthusiasm, I need to edit a few of these stories before I'm willing to add them to AO3.

Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

This is actually the most challenging thing I could be asked to do, and I almost skipped it, but then I said, self, dammit, there are so many awesome people floating around, so I friended a couple people whose journals I've been snooping around in for a while (*waves*), and I commented on a goodly number of fic and even one vid. I'm going to continue this -- connect with more fannish people, and give more feedback. Everyone wins. This is New Years Resolution #3.
