Crossposted from over on my tumblr
, which apparently is where I post most these days, as fandom trickles away from LJ. Such is the way of great fannish migrations.
For ages now I've been telling myself (and occasionally other people) I'll get around to putting together a list of all the great Cable & Deadpool
fic from the halcyon days of '09 when I first joined the fandom, when the LJ comm was busy and the kink meme in full flight. There is a ton
of good material out there that never made it to tumblr or AO3 - but before I get to the specific recs, I figured it'd be a good idea to give people a quick primer as to where to look over on Ye Olde Livejournal.
A quick LJ Resources Primercabledeadpool
is the main community for the comic. Hasn't been more than sporadically active in a long time, but the archive goes right back to when the comic was still coming out. The Cable & Deadpool Kink Meme
Created during the massive fandom influx in '09 after Deadpool's cameo in Wolverine: Origins,
and ran a good 15 pages or so before slowing down, producing many of my favourite stories ever written in the fandom - most of which have also never been reposted or archived anywhere else.
Most of the older fic worth reccing can be found at one or the other of those links - or you can save yourself some hunting and go straight to these incredibly handy masterlists one helpful fan put together, which link to just about everything:
Speaking of LJ links, also worth checking out is:Bodyslide By Two: The Cable/Deadpool manifesto
The manifesto was written way back '08, predating the post-Wolverine
influx, but the case it makes for the pairing that's as relevant as it's ever been, and there's a decent rec list of some of the older fic.( The Recs )
