Series Information for: A Time to Every Purpose
Series Title: A Time to Every Purpose
Characters and Pairings: Various characters appear in this series, both canon and original. The main pairings are Scott/Logan, Jean-Paul/OMC, and Jean/OMC.
Rating: This series is intended for an adult audience. It contains graphic descriptions of sexual activity and deals with adult relationships and concerns.
Summary: There’s a new girl at school. Charles Xavier has a new problem. Jean-Paul and Adam have an old problem that didn’t go away after all. Scott is facing some new challenges and some big changes. Jean and Sasha are getting married. To everything there is a season.
Format: A story series of 10 stories. Total length is about 30,000 words.
Scenario/Sequel/Series: X1 movieverse, although much has happened since the movie. This series was written well after X2, but does not attempt to include the events portrayed in that film. I attempt only to be consistent with the first movie and my previous fiction.
A Time to Every Purpose takes place shortly after the events depicted in Reminiscences, and about a year after Unexpected Occurrences. It picks up on plot and themes introduced in both of those series, although I hope it can be read as a standalone as well. Brief biographies of the main characters, both canon and original, are available on my website, to make it easier for those coming in well into the story. They can be found at:

All but the most recent of these are available at www.angelfire.com/comics/mo . Later fiction can be read on my livejournal: www.livejournal.com/users/mofic . My website is under reconstruction. All stories will be on the reconstructed version, with illustrations.
Disclaimer: The X-Men and Alpha Flight belong to Marvel. The movie belongs to Fox. RoseAnn, Adam, Anjuli, Sasha, Jake, Jamie, Babies Hank and Ezra, Dr. Levitan and assorted other characters are the products of my fevered imagination. Scott and Logan feel a little bit like they're mine, too, since I've been borrowing them for so long.
Feedback: Oh, yes! I love feedback. Direct all comments to email@example.com
Archiving: Sure, just ask.
Literature Guide: Most of my characters – as Magneto points out in the movie – live in a school. My version of Cyclops is an English teacher and tends to think in literary terms about events around him. It has been my practice to publish a literature guide providing supplemental information on literature quoted in each series, along with URLs for the complete works, if available. The guide for A Time for Every Purpose will be posted after the stories themselves. It contains spoilers so should be read after the series.
Acknowledgements: Thanks to three very helpful and insightful betas – Violet, Ann Marie, and Sandy – for sticking with me on this one and offering many suggestions for improvement, as well as providing some of the jokes. Their assistance was invaluable. Mistakes are mine alone.
