X-3: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly (and the fanfic potential)|
Go right on ahead and write your X2 fic, plenty of us will be willing to read it. I predict much fic that totally ignores X3.
is three steps ahead. :) Presenting: x3denialfic

Funny idea! Do you think it's really necessary? I'm hoping that - just like X1 fic was still written and read after X2 and comics fic at various points in the comics canon is still written and read - X-Men fandom will remain flexible enough to accept stories that don't take X3 into consideration. I find that with a canon so very complex and often contradictory writers often just choose one piece of it to be their canon and readers seem willing to go along with that. But maybe that's more a subject for a separate meta post: how do you deal with contradictory canon? I've proposed it as a panel topic for Con.txt, using three different fandoms as examples: Star Wars, X-Men and Harry Potter.

I've continued to write X1 fic all along, so I don't have trouble ignoring sequels :-). I'll write what I feel moved to, either way. I just hope the readers will indulge me.
I can definitely see writing X3 at some point, but it didn't give me that "I've got to write about this" feeling.
It made me want to read a story about how Logan goes up to Alkali Lake and rescues Scott.

Yes, I think that has great potential. I can see it going lots of different ways.
