Pfzhnergl.

I have 45 minutes of my lunch hour left, and am caught up on flist, Bravura, and pretty much anything that interests me. This presents the perfect opportunity to work on fic for the first time in, like, weeks.

You will notice I'm not doing so. Writing calls for focus, and my supply of that is pretty much tapped. I'm trying to dredge up a little, and the brain is going DO NOT WANT.

I am therefore aimlessly wandering the web and reading such random gems as this appropriately freeform account of Warren Ellis' panel at SDCC. It amuses me that not only don't I really miss reading comics regularly (which gets truer every time I hear something about characters I used to know that makes me go O.o , such as, say, Scott Summers knocking boots with Emma bloody Frost, and yes, I know it's old news, and no, I'm not going to get over it any time soon), I don't even have to miss all the entertaining crazy from both the people who read them and the people who write them.

Ellis isn't quite as weird as, say, Grant Morrison, but neither does he give quite so strong an impression of cultivating the persona...

Me, too; and me, neither. Ick. To me, Emma Frost is still primarily as depicted in the Firestar limited series -- boy! did I love the Firestar limited series! -- so subtly psychologically abusing, unto permanent emotional and moral crippling, the children in her care.

*nods* That's why her quasi-rehabilitation never sat well with me. I could deal with an alliance of necessity, but after what she had done to the Hellions, I could never swallow her being given anything resembling responsibility for any of Xavier's students. That's way beyond the pale of even the very liberal second chances that are the norm in that universe.

Grant Morrison. . .Ugh. He's very hit-or-miss with me. Mostly miss.

I love The Invisibles, for the most part. I've never read any of his runs on mainstream titles, but from what I've heard, I probably wouldn't be impressed.
