Why this must be read:

It's been a good month, folks - driving the Marvel Crack Van has been a blast and a half. Thanks for riding along, yeah?

To wrap up in style, I present a lovely Runaways* fixit!fic (the thing with Gert, yes, that thing) - Chase makes a deal another deal, Gert wears fishnets, Nico shreds a mean guitar, and they're all still runaways. I adore Chase in this - his love for Gert comes shining through, as does his extreme... Chase-ness - the dorkiness, the dude-iness, and the sacrifice are all here in spades.

Slightly dirty snippet under the cut )

dry your hollow eyes

* Speaking of Runaways, I never did manage to finish my overview for the series [winces] and for that I apologize. If future van drivers want to pick up the slack, I'd be happy to help.

11th-Mar-2009 10:12 pm 'Better Than Ice Cream' by puritybrown (PG)
Pairing: Karolina Dean/Xavin

Why this must be read:

It's a beautiful study of Karolina, Xavin and their relationship. Lovely metaphors, slowly dawning realizations, and ice cream on noses. With added Molly, because everything's better with Molly.

Xavin had pet names for her: "my bride", "splendid one", something in the Skrull language that came out in translation as "true form of the green snake that lives in the underwater caves of Tarnax VII", which Xavin assured her was very romantic even if it sounded ridiculous in English. Of all of them, Karolina's favourite was "beloved", because it was true: every time she looked in Xavin's eyes she could see Xavin's love for her.

3rd-Mar-2009 09:04 pm Marvel Addendum: Young Avengers (overview)
Hiya, folks! My name's [ profile] _fx and I'll be driving the Marvel crack van this month - pleasure to meet you! Climb on in, buckle up, and enjoy the ride [grins].

I'll be doing recs from the Avengers, Young Avengers, and Runaways comics (hurray!) and, before I start, I thought I'd give you a bit of an introduction to the Young Avengers (you can find a fantastic look at the Avengers in [ profile] cupidsbow original Marvel overview). Young Avengers is up first, Runaways will be up as soon as I finish writing it out (I, uh, may have gotten a bit carried away. And there are a *lot* of them, you know?) Runaways proved too much for my brain to handle.

'ware the spoilers, y'all.
