Inspiration

Stories don't just appear in my head complete. In fact, most times I'm not sure how one is going to end until I get there myself. Although I don't know where some of my ideas come from, I know I find a certain degree of inspiration in the pre-existing world of the X-Men. The following quotes have helped me in some way, whether they have given birth to an idea, helped me along the way, or spurred a title. They are listed in the order the stories appear on my Complete Story List page.

X-Men: Evolution


Distressing Damsel
So Impossible

The title of my ongoing Evolution story was taken from the song So Impossible, by Dashboard Confessional. I chose this title because the song is one of four songs that outlines the beginning of a relationship...from kinda liking someone else, to gathering the courage to talk to that person, to actually going out on a date, to becoming a couple. That seems to be the direction my fanfics are taking, so it seemed appropriate. The lines of the song that the title is taken from are:
      I'm dying to know
      do you, do you like dreaming of things
      so impossible, or only the practical,
      or ever the wild...
