Just to think about things, how do I really feel about it. Conflicted. More importantly, irritated as hell. When it was announced, I was so surprised by a supposedly unpopular team being given a show. Don't argue, they are extremely unpopular with the Marvel elite and often end up as literal canon fodder for anguished heroes to cry over. So why a show? Because Squirrel Girl couldn't stand on her own. I was against it on principle because since the third series (which is no coincidence) they have been square-pegging other characters into the team. Just look at Avengers: The Initiative where they added flipping Ultragirl and Slapstick into the team. Yuck.

Also, I called it on Debrii being gay. Oh yeah, in that story about Speedball post Dark Reign which was apparently super OOC for everyone, where she arrived with her French girlfriend. Psychic skills ftw. Story in my fic graveyard now.

Back on topic, so then they announce which characters will actually be in the show. Mr Immortal? WTFingF?! Everyone else if fine but how disappointing that they teased Justice before, then dropped him like a lead balloon. Why?
  • mutant
  • child abuse survivor
  • killer
  • telekinetic
Mutant is a bad word in Marvel owned Movie-verse so let's not go there. The show is a comedy and there is nothing funny about being abused or killing your abuser. I added one more. He's a telekinetic and they've added Debrii to the ranks so it's possible they just don't want two telekinetics on the team. Reading through the synopsis and character profiles, it appears that they have taken aspects of Vance's personality and added them to Robbie. Hmmm. *frowny face* The one that surprised me is Night Thrasher. Are his parents alive? Where is the dramatic tension and 90% of the canon background for the team's creation if his parents are still alive?

I am still thinking about this stuff. It will be pretty cool to see Speedball in living colour but it won't be the same without Marvel Boy, Nova, Firestar, Namorita, etc. I love Microbe being back through, gosh I was sad when he was killed in the event that shall not be named.

I may bring this unholy mess of a show back up again sometime. Sorry.

I don't feel like transferring it to AO3 though, what's the point? Mostly gen Avengers Academy, Runaways, and New Warriors stuff. None of the rated stories though, those ones I burned.

My icon is NW Forever so it's ironic that I've been considering retiring from the New Warriors fandom.

I've loved this fictional team for twenty-five years (I'm so fucking old) so it's no small decision but I'm just not feeling it anymore. I already left that forum full of diehard male readers assholes who had to nitpick everything I posted. AO3 doesn't generate much. A look at the latest couple of fics on *shudders*

We're almost at the one year anniversary of the volume five series ending, it had so much promise but didn't quite click with readers for whatever reason, I loved those dorks.

Dear Writer Letter

Buckle up, here we go again.

My requests:
Nova (Comics) - Richard Rider, Sam Alexander
Richie Rider finally returns from the Dead Pocket Universe to find Sam Alexander as the only surviving Nova left in the galaxy, cutting a rookie swathe through friends and enemies alike. Awkward hilarious mentor-ship shenanigans ensue.
New Warriors (Comics) - Vance Astrovik, Robbie Baldwin, Kaine Parker, Maria Aracely Penalba, Faira Sar Namora, Selah Burke, (Mark Sim), (Sam Alexander)
New Warriors hijinks post series five launch. There is so much humorous potential with this new team, Sam and Aracely competing for most annoying team member, Faira just wanting to hit something (reminds me of Namorita), Vance with a constant headache in the form of Kaine, Robbie, and Selah arguing about the direction the team is going in. Mark just standing back bemused by the whole team of heroes thing. Accidental heroics with awesome teamwork then more arguing.
Guardians of the Galaxy (Comics) - Peter Quill, Jack Flag, Mantis, Rocket Raccoon, Vance Astro, Groot
I love the old crew from post-Annihilation but six characters doesn't allow for Drax, Gamora, Phyla-Vell, or early team Adam Warlock to be listed but feel free to include them. I'm not keen on the latest incarnation/characterisation of the team at all. My preference is a rollicking space adventure-humour type story from around that time in the GotG timeline please? Also, coffee drinking, name calling, cosmic s#!t and/or drinks that infuriate Jack so much, and generalised stupidity that leads to improbable success anyway - with Peter and co banged up and in bandages by the end when they have to give their debriefs.

Captain America/New Avengers - James "Bucky" Barnes

Bucky's fine living on his own or with Widow dropping in and out as she likes but  this whole encampment of Avengers hiding out in his apartment is getting on his last nerve. I was re-reading the whole New Avengers run with Bucky Cap during Dark Reign where various on-the-run Avengers were living/camping out in his place, eating all his food, and it was literally a dump because of it, and he was trying to start a conversation about it then stuff happened. I kind of wanted him to lose it over all the trash and being taken for granted because Bucky appears to be a really tidy kind of guy, almost OCD about cleanliness, and it was clearly getting to him (as it would most normal human beings). Slice of life-ish. Again, humourous if possible.
Generalised stuff:
I love humour, humour, humour, also, happy endings, fluff, crack, plottiness, hurt/comfort, kindness, characters being competent, height difference, love, tenderness, friendship, families being families, heroism, magic, fix-it fics, rule 63, gentle touch, slice of life, mundane, mentors being awesome.
I don't enjoy (AKA please don't even consider giving this to me): I would prefer no angst at all (please I cannot stress this enough, I was given angst for Yuletide despite saying I didn't want angst and it kind of fucked up my Yuletide experience.) Also, no explicit sex, bdsm (particularly dominance), violence or any combination of those (I won't make a list of kinks I don't like, just think vanilla-ish, yes, yes, I am boring, darling), fetishism, non-con or dub-con, physical or mental or sexual abuse and anything that comes under those banners, self-harm, good going evil, dark themes, a huge multitude of AUs, character death, animal abuse and/or pet death.

Offensive language doesn't bother me. Slash or yaoi is all good and fine.
