cloakandfire replied to your post “Which UXM issue was that, where Alison talks about Scott and Emma? Was it when Scott started sleeping on the sofa? Just curious.”

Ok! Thanks. I’ll have to go read that part again. All I remember was them coming home drunk and Pixie making a not-so-subtle suggestion. xD

I want to make sure I am not giving the wrong impression of what happened in that scene. She was saying that if they could not make it, there was no hope for anybody else. That came right on the heels of her an pixie making those comments. Maybe there was meaning only I found in it.

What if Dazzler was a character in her own right?

Hold up. Are you really trying to insinuate I am relegating Alison to a character whose importance is based around her relationship to a man, without having any value of her own?

Because I think that would be a pretty…

Nah man, I’m just saying that she doesn’t need to be a love interest right now. She needs to be herself and find comfort in her new personal status quo. Obviously characters Cyclops date are awesome (Emma Frost #1) but Dazzler shouldn’t be a candidate just cos she’s in the vicinity and she got boobies.

By that logic, why haven’t Cyclops and Magik bumped uglies yet?

Fair enough.

But by what logic, though? I never gave a reason for why I considered it. You are applying a motivation I never provide.

I think there is a good vibe between the two, and they had some moments in the San Francisco/Utopia era. Scott showed a trust in who she was and her abilities, he does not normally vocalize.

The scene during the Fraction run where Alison talks about Scott and Emma as a couple, and questions what happens if they can’t make it, has stuck with me for a while.

Now after everything that has happened in both of their lives, they would be together on the same team, and Scott is no longer with Emma. I figured there was enough tinder to possibly start a fire.

I have not suggested Magik, because it is not a paring I see a story potential for, just as I have not suggested Eva, even though she has shown an interest in him.

Beyond that, it is clear now the direction of her story is going in very different places, and I am more than happy with it.

PS: Your new name is much easier to pronounce.

Unsolicited opinion; but for anime, I would recommend these features - Paprika (Inception, before inception was thing, visual masterpiece), Neon Genesis Evangelion (either the original feature film series, or the latest remakes), Metropolis, Memories (a film anthology by the creator of Akira) and Redline (for a straightforward racing story that wants you to enjoy every second of the fast paced visuals). And as for series... Eureka Seven, definitely. All of these are brilliant examples of anime.

Sweet. I will take a look into those.

What's on your opinion on anime? I always kinda had a love/hate relationship with it. I really like some films and TV series like Akira, Ghost in the Shell, Cowboy Bebop and Neon Genesis Evangelion but I kinda get turned off by some other anime due to their more cutesy and over-dramatized styles. That said I know a girl who absolutely loved anime but couldn't understand why I like American (especially superhero) comic books so I guess whatever rocks your boat as the saying goes!

I am with you there. I have seen some truly inspired animation. Beautiful stuff, really. But a lot of what I have been introduced to does not interest me. That ranges from the cutesy stuff, to some of the sexual content that turn me off. My introduction to it was with Akira, and most of what I have seen since does nto come close. I also don’t search out new stuff.

But when it shines, I love it. I also understand “shines” is completely subjective. I am going to be watching the new Netflix anime, Knights of Sedonia,  when I get a chance to sit down and and just watch it, without doing anything on the side. It looks interesting.

What i’m completely in awe of, when it comes to anime, is how diverse the market for it is.  It’s so far from niche.  In fact this current summer season in Japan sports over 40 series, most of them new, that range in genre from sci-fi/Mecha battles, to slice of life tales about kids on a high school swimming team, to over the top slap stick comedies, to intense romantic dramas.  That’s a diversification and acceptance in mainstream culture that we are NO WHERE close to in American entertainment. Our animation is almost completely relegated to targeting the under 15, with comedies and adventure tales. We can’t even get an artistic and creative wonder like The Legend of Korra to stay on a cable networks primetime schedule, and in Japan they have networks dedicated to multi-hour blocks of brand new animation every night.  We have a lot to learn.

Recommend 5 feature films, and a series that have weight. I don’t really search this out, so my intake has been decidedly limited.
Please and thank you

I don’t look at animation as a children’s medium. I just want good stories.

What if Dazzler is Cyclops’ next love interest?

Hold up. Are you really trying to insinuate I am relegating Alison to a character whose importance is based around her relationship to a man, without having any value of her own?

Because I think that would be a pretty shitty thing to do, based on the totality of what I have said in regards to her. If it is not clear yet, I focus on Cyclops more than any other character. That was a post with me spit balling possibilities for how another character might interact with him. I do that a lot.
