So here is the part where I show off how unspeakably amazing are my friends.
At this year’s ECCC, my girl Seanan was on a panel with Chris Claremont.
Chris Fucking Claremont.
For those of you who don’t know Chris Fucking Claremont, here are the important things you must know as they pertain to me.
He wrote the single greatest comic book run with twenty years on X-Men. You do not know how much I love X-Men. YOU DO NOT. What’s more, he created nearly every X-Men character worth being created, including Rogue who is only one of my all-time favourite characters ever.
So Seanan’s going to be on this panel and when she tells me we both squee for like three hours. Then she has this brilliant idea. Since my other girl Amy Mebberson is also at ECCC, why not get her to do us pictures of our respective X-Girls and have Chris Fucking Claremont sign them?
FUCKING YES PLEASE
Oh but then it gets better.
Because as you see, not only did Chris Fucking Claremont sign it, he wrote dialogue for Rogue. With his own hand.
INCLUDING MY NAME
Rogue is speaking dialogue written by Chris Fucking Claremont, just for me, INCLUDING MY NAME.
ROGUE IS SAYING MY NAME
And I just love Seanan and I love Amy and I love Rogue and I love this SO SO MUCH I barely know how to articulate anything.
ROGUE IS SAYING MY NAME YOU GUYS
