This isn't how I see myself, but it's what I came up with:

You scored as Beast. Codename: The Beast
Full Name: Henry P. McCoy
Mutant Powers: Increased agility, strength and stamina.

Henry "Hank" McCoy is a founding member of the X-Men. Among all his original teamates, Hank had the best childhood, between loving parents, and so his temper and way of living was one of the happiest at the mansion. Beast's mutation at first was hardly noticable, but while away from the team, Hank made a terrible mistake: testing a new substance that he was using to study the x-factor. Beast tried the substance on himself. This caused a further mutation on his body, covering him with gray fur (that later became blue), fangs and great nails. He had then indeed become a "beast".

One of the only students at the mansion who took up an education beyond that of the Xavier school, Beast's studies were in the biogenetic area of his field. Possessing a quick wit, a wry sense of humour, and scholarly wisdom, he also has a penchant for quoting the classics and poetry. Despite his beastly exterior, he possesess incredible genius, making him one of the most intellingent minds in the world.

How the X-Men Changed My Life

This essay is reprinted from Advocate.com, the website of The Advocate (glossy gay mag). I wrote this piece on parenting and fanfic for them when X2 came out and it has been on their website for two years. But they just took down all of their 2003 material. So, I'm reprinting here, behind the cut, in case anyone's interested, and so I have a place to point to for an explanation when people ask me how I came by this strange hobby. Yes, I know, to people in fandom it's not a strange hobby. But to the fannishly challenged, for some strange reason, writing stories about mutant superheroes who have sex with each other is considered not quite so everyday as my other hobby (making beaded jewelry). I published this under my real name and did not mention my pseudonym in it and declined to have The Advocate link to my website. Yet a number of readers told me they found my stories from this article. Apparently there aren't a whole lot of X-Men writers out there with stories taking place in Saskatchewan and Belarus.
