Finished and posted an essay about the Age of Apocalypse and why I find the AoA Sabretooth and Wild Child a dreamy match
over at superhero_muses
and I am now kicking back 'cause I am dead of meta.
Seriously, that damn essay took for damned ever to finish and I'm still
not sure I said everything I wanted to say or that I said what I did say right. And that's with the sucker being fifteen pages long (though one page is fic recs and another is footnotes, but still...)
Still, I done done it so I am pleased.
I reread Sabretooth: Death Hunt the other day 'cause I want to create AoA versions of Birdy and Graydon Creed. I like Birdy a lot -- she's a telepath that Sabretooth hired to help him deal with his murderous rages and she's hella cool. He treats her like crap but she holds her own against him. The series was written by Larry Hama and it's pretty obvious because some of the dialogue is over the top and heading through No Man's Land to be shot down by the German guns. But still, it's a fun romp and there are great moments. Like Sabretooth in a French restaurant (in Paris, no less, on the Eiffel tower, no less) in his ugly ass hairy-backed yellow footie pjs outfit and a dorky tie because the restaurant has a dress code and you can wear your footie pjs but you better have a tie, damnit.
Also, Birdy at one point carries a HUGE ASS GUN and also threatens Wolverine with a grenade.
But, back to the AoA, I want to put Birdy and Graydon Creed into an AoA fic so I can have Birdy running around with a big ass gun and survivalist yuppies ('cause Graydon Creed would totally be a survivalist yuppie complete with a wine cellar in his shelter -- just trust me, he would).
BTW, looked up survivalist yuppies and found out that it not only brings up hits but it brought up an essay that gave me the idea for the wine cellar in the shelter. Thank you real life, for being weirder than me. Otherwise, I was just going to base my ideas around an old TV movie I used to love about this city family that moves out to the woods to get back to the real authentic living experience and who realize that there are crazy folks living in the woods too and I think it was called "Roughing It".
Have I mentioned Exiles is awesome? It is. Morph is aweseome. Blink is awesome. TJ and Thunderbird and Mimic and Heather (especially Heather!) are all awesome. And Sabretooth is awesome. And hot. Also, Heather is hot and smart and she likes junk food. Oh, and Beak? Is awesome.
I went looking at FF.Net for an Exiles section and didn't find one, but I did find Marvel Zombies so I looked and I found this fic which is cool:Foresight
by Andrew Joshua Talon. Layla Miller in the Marvel Zombies 'verse -- how the girl who "knows stuff" reacts to the End of the World.
