I have enough sites dedicated to Marvel's mutants that I've linked them all to a single main site, rather than requiring everyone to go to the Happy Happy Text-Only main page.
As with all my pages, Crossroads X and its subdivisions are mostly friendly to Lynx or mobile phones, and graphics-free.
The Character Archives
These archives highlight some of my favorite Marvel characters. All archives are reasonably inclusive; that is, I try to get every story featuring the highlighted character, not just the stories I like.
Alara's Now Rather Spiffy Magneto Page: I confess to a love/hate relationship with Marvel Comics, and most of my conflicting emotions center around this guy. On the one hand, they created him and made him a fascinating character in the first place; on the other hand, they are continuing to do their best to ruin their fascinating creation. So I turned to fanfic to get my Magneto fix. Here's the fanfic and reviews of fanfic and info and stuff I've collected and HTMLized thus far.

Chuck Amuck!: Okay, I admit it. I'm also obsessed with Marvel's Charles Xavier. And he's not even a villain. I have no excuse. :-)

Cyphered Text: A page dedicated to Douglas "Cypher" Ramsey, a New Mutant who, unfortunately, is still dead.

The Theme Archives
These archives present stories that are related by a theme. Theme archives are exclusive; that is, they only include stories that I like, and which are on the highlighted theme.
Otherwhere: The Elseworlds Archive. Features stories (from all comics, not just Marvel, although Marvel's X-Men dominate it) of characters in other places, other times.

Darkest Heart: New! The Villains Archive. Covers multiple fandoms, not just comics, but the largest and most detailed page is the comic book villains'.

Alara's X-Book Fic: This mini-archive is where all of my own stuff is stored. I started to find that primarily using my character archives for my own work, and hiding my subpage under my "Aleph Press Page", was straitjacketing... I've written two Common People stories and one fic which mentions Xavier, Magneto and Doug Ramsey but doesn't have any of them as characters, so it qualifies for none of my archives. Instead of using story summaries, on this page you'll find author's notes describing why I wrote a story or what I was shooting for.
