Title: The Mutant Problem
Author: [profile] xenokattz
Characters: Peter Parker, various mutants, background Peter/MJ (movieverse)
Length: Medium (7900+ words plus a heapload of pictures)
Summary: A week after Black Tuesday's telepathic attack on the world, Peter Parker took some pictures for a story on "the mutant problem." Ten years later, he's still taking pictures. The only difference is his definition of "the problem."

This story is essentially a mock-up of a photoessay done for the New York Times by Peter Parker on mutants. The first line of the article reads "You know that television show, Big Bang Theory where all the geeks live in one floor of a college dorm?" (Which is not exactly accurate, but: *FLAILS*) The Peter voice is perfect, and the sweet background Peter/MJ moments are perfect, but even more this story actually makes you think about what life would be like for mutants if they really existed. There are all these ground-level snapshots of human beings and how they reflect on and interact with the larger world, and the photographs are just perfect and everything about this is perfect. I think I feel a little bit in love with Rogue and Wanda, not that I needed any help there, and let me say it again: PERFECT.
