Fandoms are kind of like relationships, really. You get about three to six months of new'n'shiny, then you have to decide whether this one's actually offering enough for you to stick with it. There's some you drift away from, some you never get sick of, and some you keep on coming back to EVEN THOUGH THEY KEEP ON BREAKING YOUR HEART (o hai, Whoniverse).

Anyway, still waiting to see when the new'n'shiny wears off with Cable and Deadpool. I'm currently going through the evangelistic READ THIS IT'S MADE OF CRACK phase with this fandom, slightly hindered by the fact that this means I have to try to explain Cable's backplot. Anyway, this ship manifesto and this essay take you through the set-up and dynamics rather better than I can, and without going off on the rant about how bad Rob Liefeld's art is*. There's some more edited highlights from Deadpool's career here.

Anyway, fic (mostly NSFW):
1. Shut Up! PWP told entirely in dialogue. Very funny, very wrong. Exactly what you might expect shagging Deadpool to be like.
2. Physical Impossibility Wolverine:Origins movieverse. A really quite unsettling character study with some fairly understated slashy subtext (yes, this one is SFW).
3.Selfless Slash cliche time! In which Cable manages to use his vast and ill-defined mutant powers to split off his evil side, and Deadpool finds himself at the mercy of evil!mind-controlling!cult-leader!Cable. Contains psychic coercion, a bit on the disturbing side.
4.One Of The Beautiful People More slash cliches! Bodyswap this time.
5.Suing Through The Fourth Wall Crossover with She-Hulk, for added meta win. Deadpool wishes to sue his fanfiction writers (also SFW).

*The rant's here if you're remotely interested in it. )
