Reminiscences - fifth story|
I never realized before this needed to be told: re-interpreting the past in the light of the present of your on-going AU. That was just great, thank you...
Also I really enjoyed the multi-layered look at Scott and Charles relationship: I have always thought that Charles Xavier is a real cipher -and I have been reading the X-Men comic books for 20+ years- but I liked the glimpses of him we have here and this was very much in character for him, at least for how I think of him.
Thank you for sharing!

I'm glad you liked it. I didn't realize it needed to be told until I started writing it :-).
Also I really enjoyed the multi-layered look at Scott and Charles relationship:
It started off as a Charles story. I didn't really see Scott figuring into it except in the story he told about Charles. But he kept pushing himself into everybody else's stories! I spent the first half of writing it yelling "Get out of this story, Scott Summers! This one isn't about you!" but then I gave in and let it be a Scott-and-Charles story instead.
I have always thought that Charles Xavier is a real cipher
Me, too. My motivation for writing this was wanting to understand him better. The next series is one of those ensemble ones with a bunch of things happening to a bunch of people, but one of the threads is about Charles and Scott, as well. And the one I'm working on now focusses on Charles in a different way...
Wow... this is interesting: I am really looking forward to this because:
- I love the way you handle their relationship, it rings very true and understandable to me
- Xavier is such a fascinating character, which has been both under-utilized and drawn totally out-of-character both in fanfiction and in canon, that a thoughtful look at his point of view and motivations is something I'll really enjoy.
Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the feedback. Let me know what you think of Charles in "A Time to Every Purpose" if you get through that one. And if you finish that and would like a preview of the one after it, just holler...
I am on it right now!
And re: preview? Oh please! Please, please! sorry, I am a major fan of yours, so sometimes I cannot help gushing. I try very hard to keep it under decent bounds, but...
