Subject:Marriage in Northstar's future!
Time:10:26 pm
Okay, I know this is old news, but Northstar/Iceman is my first OTP ever, so I'm kind of really sad to see it fading away. I've got some fanfics that are still in the works, too. One is an AU where Bobby never joined the X-Men and went on to be a New-York superhero of sorts (like Spiderman) and the other is a movieverse AU inspired by and very loosely based off this video, and will also feature a background pairing of Pyro/Gambit... just wondering, would anyone still be interested in reading those? I know this community isn't really active anymore...
That's all really. Have a nice day!

Fading away? Since when has cannon stupidity ever stood in our way?

I know what you mean. There's something difficult about going so blatently against canon, especially given that there's nothing really wrong with Kyle. He just isn't Bobby.

However, give it a year or two, once they've played up the homophobe aspect of the team dynamics, then I'm sure we'll get the drama of the Astonishing X-Men having to help they're gay teammate come to terms with being a widower.

I am curious to see which of JPs teammates turns down the invitation. Maybe it'll be Bobby and that'll be all sorts of fodder for the "so in denial" plot.

That is exactly how I feel every time I try to write anything JP/Bobby, anymore.

I like the sounds of your fics. I would love to read them! (I'm so behind on current canon anyway....)

Iceman/Northstar was one of my first OTPs as well. I'll always love them, even if they don't have a huge following. (Not like, *cough* Thor/Loki or any other countless Avengers slash pairings now!)

There were Bobby/Jean-Paul fic long before JP even had a hint of a crush on Bobby and they will still be fic after JP marries Kyle.

I don't see why canon events should influence fan fiction and I'm sure the wedding wouldn't mean there are any less readers for your stories (in fact it could potentially mean a few more come along). I would urge you to go with it if you are really excited about these stories, but any kind of writing where your heart isn't in it is destined to fail.

I'll be buying the wedding issue (mainly for political reasons - I want to support Marvel for having the balls) but have no real interest in JP/Kyle. From what I can see, there hasn't actually been that much on-panel interaction and perhaps this wedding would have meant more if they were already a couple that fans really like. But I'm quite comfortable saying that I'm happy Northstar is getting married, even if my ideal scenario would be a different partner altogether.

I'd certainly be interested in reading them especially since that's my fan video and I'd love to see a fic for it. I had a few ideas in my head but never managed to make it work the way I wanted to.
I know what you mean about the fading away though. I've struggled to complete my JP/Bobby fic (or post anything else I've written) because it doesn't get much response in comparison to other fandoms I'm in which just made me feel like I was writing for no audience/readers.

Yes, I would totally be interested in reading the fics you mentioned - while the whole wedding thing has made it even more difficult than ever for me to write anything that feels right. ugh, I am totally for new fic!
