Downton X-Men  
Not that I need anything else to do in my Copious Free Time, but last night I wasn't even thinking about my Downton Abbey/X-Men mashup (did I mention that? the other day I had an X-Men/Downton Abbey dream and thought, damn, that could work. WWI-era superheroes, that is, more than actually fitting Downton Abbey to the X-Men (which could also work but I don't see getting to do that any time soon :)) and I realised I could use that world to do Evil Hat Fred's "World War G" idea, which was a thought he once had where instead of WW2 we had a World War Gamma wherein superheroes were largely created/powered by gamma rays, a la the Incredible Hulk, as the next stage in the Downton X-Men world.

I wish--on another comics note--that I could think of something to doodle for some kind of little web comic. I can think of a dozen ideas for a real artist, but just for me? Pssht. Nothing. Absolutely no clue.

In things I *can* think to write, I have hit 75K on MAGIC & MANNERS, and I get to spend the weekend writing, so it's 90K or bust by Monday.

I would read that mashup! :)

I read a book recently (i'll check title/author when I get home The Violent Century by Lavie Tidhar https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/18747351-the-violent-century) about what happened if there were WW2 superheroes (on both sides). it was an interesting read.

For years now, I've been wanting a Jane Austen / Marvel mashup.

I think Elizabeth Bennet would make a great spider-woman.

workin' on it!

(i decided a period on the end of that failed to connotate sufficient enthusiasm, although in my head it was like a *solid nod, workin' on it* thing. stupid text-based communication failing to deliver the intended emotional content... :))
