    Friends from alternate universes and planets meet and immediately proceed to put stuff (that was factory made for this purpose!) down their pants. Hooray! Hilariously inappropriate culture clashes, awkward sex, and weird alien biology ensues!

    Summary

    AU after the first X-Men movie. While traveling through Canada on Xavier's tip, Logan comes across a strange mutant caged in a freak show. He can get him out, but actually saving him will be a longer process, and may take an entire family of mutants. And they all might just insist on saving Logan along the way, too.

    Features bigotry, multiple scenes of "spot the comics guest star", lots of road trips, and gratuitous amounts of Canada.

    Summary

    Grandmother ruled Gir Niajra, and always had.

    Jummai felt certain this was so, mostly because it was impossible to imagine otherwise: anyone, anyone at all, seated so comfortably on that great golden throne except Grandmother? Anyone who could look or speak with such authority, to whom so many great and worthy people bowed down? No—only Grandmother. It had always been Grandmother, and it always would be.

    Then Grandmother died; and there was a war.

    (Or: Jummai is a princess without a throne—but she has no intention of leaving to others what is rightfully hers. She needs a wife with an army, and gets one; but her wife seems impervious to her tactical charm, she keeps making mistakes, and her cousin still wants her dead.)

    Summary

    “I’ve, um, been dreaming.” She closes her eyes because it’s easier to ignore Mami and Homura’s stares. “In, in my dream I’m still in bed, but I-I’m not alone, Sayaka’s next to me but she’s not breathing, she’s—”

    She’s pale and cold and pretty in the same way the stained glass windows of Kyoko’s father’s church are pretty and she’s lying so still she can’t be anything but dead. But in her dream Kyoko still curls around her, soul gem in hand, keeping her warm, keeping her safe—

    “—she’s dead, I didn’t even know her that well and she’s dead and in my dream I’m so, I’m scared that there’s nothing I can do.” She opens her eyes. “But there really is nothing I can do. She’s already gone, and we left her there.” She stares hard at her hands. “We weren’t really even friends.”
