Fandom: X-Men Movieverse
Series Title: Returning Spring
Scenario/Sequel: This story series is a sequel to After the Fall, which started shortly after the end of X2: X-Men United. These two series draw upon both X-Men movies as their canon. I use some characters and concepts from the comics and other sources (e.g. the novelization of the first movie) but feel bound only to be consistent with what’s portrayed in the movies themselves.
Length: Returning Spring is 10 stories long, totaling approximately 26,000 words.
Rating: This series is rated NC/17 because it contains explicit descriptions of sexual activity.
Disclaimer: The X-Men and Alpha Flight belong to Marvel. The movies belong to Fox. Dr. Ethan Allen Leeds and Angela/Cassandra are products of my fevered imagination. I get no monetary reward from writing these stories, just enjoyment.
Archiving and Forwarding: Certainly, just ask. Alternate file formats available upon request.
Feedback: Yes, please! Write to me at email@example.com
Note to Readers of My Prior Stories: My X2 stories start from scratch. They are out of continuity with my other fiction, which was based only on the first movie. I use some of the same ideas and elements I’ve used before (e.g. Scott is still an English teacher) but many of the characters and relationships are different from what they were in my previous fiction. Remember: none of that stuff in the other stories has happened.
Note on Literature Referenced in the Series: As my Scott is an English teacher, my fiction tends to be full of literary quotes and allusions. More information on the literature referenced in the stories can be found, with urls to read the works themselves, in a separate literature guide I will post at the end of the series. It contains spoilers, so should be read after the series itself.
Acknowledgements: Big thanks to SLM and CEA, for all their help and encouragement as I was writing. They caught errors, gave ideas, and improved the stories. Mistakes are mine alone. Thanks as well to Sam Walker, for all the nifty Vermont information and to RGB, for letting me use her house in Peru (although it's changed so much I doubt she'll recognize it), and to AM for paramedic info.
