so, deadpool #52?

Because pada_something asked/made polite noises in my direction, and I enjoy inflicting my views on the two people who might possibly be vaguely interested in them:

You apparently manage to conceal a honkin' great big parachute in your jacket, of course. Dude, Fisk, you're a big guy, but uh, do you seriously carry that around with you all day, just in case? I mean, what if you get a sudden booty ca- okay maybe not, but wouldn't it be kinda heavy and uncomfortable to wear? Chafe right in the middle of your back when you're reclining on your Bad Guy Luxury Leather Chair (patent pending) and ruin oh wait! You know, maybe I'm a little too hung up on this whole thing. Maybe there was something else that happened in this book?

Oh yes! Bob totally stabbed Wade in the sternum (I hope he did it very hard, considering it looks like he's gone straight for the bone) with what we presume to be the anti-mutant serum of actual doom! BOB! You budding little badass, you! I expect Wade is so proud. 'I am letting you go, Mr Wilson.' : o

So, um, what now? Presumably there'll be an orderly queue for who'd like to kill our boy once and for all, but wait - Did Logan get hit with it too by his darling widdle boy Daken? (he just wants attention, really. Those young'ns and their wacky homicidal shennanigans). And we can't possibly have Wolverine die. (For long. Or unless it's part of a miniseries. Or something. (I like parentheses!)) Sooo... anti-anti-serum? Wacky plot device?

Random thoughts (no, the above was not my idea of random. That was a very structured review I'll have you know)
* Fantomex - pls to be toning down the 'Bonjour! I'm French! I must say nearly everything in French now more than ever, naturellement!' WE GET IT DUDE.
* Psylocke? Hello? Did you even get a line in this book? You were literally just background pretties.
* I think I like Logan actually really quite a lot in Uncanny X-Force/this crossover. Keep it under your hat, okay?
* Aw Wade, you remembered what guilt feels like. Were you actually trying to protect Bob in some kind of weird way?
* Bob! You are truly the sweetest not-so cowardly henchmen/pawn/minion ever! I know you're friends with Wade mostly because you're utterly terrified of him, but you still believe in him, don't you?
* Dear front blurb writers. Bob is not Wade's only friend. Okay, so he doesn't have a whole bunch, but I'd definitely count; Blind Al, Weasel (90%), NAAAAATE, Siryn (kinda) and Outlaw. And you just know Tasky has a weird soft spot for him too, so there.

I'm pretty sure I've written more words in this post than this whole issue is comprised of. Ah well, I've never been great at pithy little quips and non-rambling well stractured reviews anyways.

Besides, I'm almost certain no-one else is going to read this. Comment with 'honey badger' (don't ask) if you actually did and I will award you the entire internets. Or a shiny ficcy thing. One or the other.

Aw, damnit, I just remembered I had more thoughts on the future of this storyline, but I guess I'll have to save them for another day. Suffice it to say? Daniel Way don't you dare make him pretty or I will flip my shit y'all. See, I mean it because I wrote it gangster style.

I literally just finished writing this (yay insomnia?) So, um - make of it what you will. *nervous*

What is it like?

Nathan considers asking him sometimes. When they lay together in the dark, the background hum of Providence's residents ever-present in his mind, like the turn of the Earth, Nate sometimes thinks of questions. Discards most of them as soon as they touch his thoughts – impractical, unimportant, irrelevant. It's not in him to dwell for long. Not conducive to the mission.

But sometimes, he can't help but wonder.

Wade is mostly asleep, and Nate doesn't need to be as close as he is to feel the heat, the energy rolling off him in waves. The man fluctuates constantly. Perpetual motion. Should be impossible, scratch it - he is damned impossible, it should really be repulsive, but Nate can't seem to get enough. Wade is life - blood and tooth, fighting and screaming, laughing and crying. Relentless.

So what is it like when it all stops? He's seen Wade shot in the head, gutted, gored, all manner of ways that kill a man inflicted upon him (mostly due to his own careless regard for his own well-being), and he always always comes back from it. Nate's had his own fair share of near-death experiences, he has his own ideas of What's After, but Wade... is Wade. What does he see in those last moments? Wade told him once that he had a bit of a fling with Death, (who apparently has a great rack), but Nate isn't entirely certain if Wade is joking or not.

He reaches out a hand, flesh touching scarred flesh for a pulse that rivals the wingbeat of a hummingbird, Wade's metabolism is through the roof, and this is him at rest. Ridiculous, but there you have it.

He considers the question again, shakes his head.

He knows better than to ask a question he doesn't want to know the answer to.

PFFFFT. BRB I need to take a cold shower because I think I just fell in love with you. :|

I. LOVE. IT. Perfect drabble shape. I really like your writing. :3 (In fact, I was just creeping on that be my yoko ono fic.)
Apr. 1st, 2012 01:03 am (UTC)

Thank you! So so much. ♥

Yoko Ono is like the second ever fic I've written with Wade so, uh, it's very very far from perfect. I'm just a big ole' sucker for silly banter and shit AND OH GODS PLEASE DON'T JUDGE ME OKAY?

Okay, so it's 2am here and I think now sleep finally calls. :)

Nooo! It's really good! And so is dat fic. D: (love that you included Blind Al.) It almost inspires me to post my stupid little drabble. .3.

Yeah, that screams bedtime to me. YOU SLEEP WELL NOW, YA HEAR?

I heart Blind Al. She is composed entirely of awesome. You know it's true.

almost inspires me to post my stupid little drabble.
DO EEEEET! Dude, seriously, we are not exactly overflowing with fic for this fandom, ya know? New stuff is always always welcomed in my book. And my book is a pretty damned awesome book with dinosaurs, Voodoo and explosions.
Apr. 1st, 2012 09:32 pm (UTC)

..Alright. .3. I do for you. And that book.

Manish? Dude, she totally used to bump uglies with Steve effing Rogers! So... y'know maybe only just a little bit manish?

And woot! Fic! I shall keep my eye on the C&D comm then. :D
Apr. 1st, 2012 09:54 pm (UTC)
Well, manish in the fact I totally thought she was a man when I first saw her. Also, that's really gross, because all I can imagine is old saggy Al...gah! I'm imagining it again!

What? I don't even know how to do that. :| *doesn't understand LJ at all*

Hey, no worries. I kinda just assumed you found Guardian's fic via the cabledeadpool community, which is why I mentioned that. If you're a member then you just need to hit the drop down box by your userpic choice when you post an entry and choose that comm to post to. You'll probably want to take a look at the posting guidelines there too. Same goes for any other comm you're a member of.

Otherwise you can totally just share a link to your LJ. S'all good. :D

I don't even remember how I found it. I think it was Devi that showed me. D: But thanks for info, I'll check it out.
