Busy day ahead. Lots of work - but the work I feel will be cleansing. Burning away the silt and tarnish of guilt that comes from not working. Forging a hope that I can overcome my restraints and my flaws. Other psycho-babble stuff.

HArry Potter this week did not happen because I was all broken in the head and stuff. Note to self - time to make that appointment I've been dreading. ANyway, instead of playing Harry Potter, Jye, Scott and myself sat around watching and talking X-Men (because we are geeks), which was a nice, relaxed change.

My X-Men game, if I ever run it, will probably be set somewhere in Asia, by the way.

Anyway, because I am a big fat (sentimental) geek, I got to thinking, and was overcome by curiosity... what is your favourite comic-book kiss?

My personal choice is an X-Men one (because I am the afore mentioned big fat (sentimental) geek). It happened just after Rogue left the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants and joined up with the X-Men, while everyone was in Japan for Wolverine's wedding. Things go pear-shaped and Rogue and Wolverine end up having to fight the bad guys by themselves. Rogue sacrifices herself to save Woverine and his fiancee, Mariko; but Wolverine does not letf her die. Nuff said.

Death kissing The Crow in the original comic book.

I must admit, I have difficulty thinking of one I liked more than that one myself. It was just so right, particularly given where it came in the story. On a good day, Chris Claremont was a brilliant writer.

Other than that...
* Eric kissing the little girl in the Crow (and the whole scene leading up to it. Always brings me to tears.)
* The original upside-down kiss in Spiderman (actually, probably not the original - but when Peter proposed to MJ, kneeling on the ceiling... it charms me every time, no matter how often they reiterate it. The combination of romance and whimsicality, I think.)
* Dream refusing Nada's kiss in Season of Mists
* Lucifer kissing Mazikeen, unmindful of her half-faced-ness, also Season of Mists
* Pretty much any kiss in Hopeless Savages (if you haven't read, but say, 'cos you should)

And I still want to play in your X-Men game.

Maybe it's the kiss that Ragged Robin plants on King Mob's face mask before he goes off to the wholesale slaughter at the beginning of series 2 of The Invisibles.
Maybe it's Chamber and Husk in Gen X (just before he demolishes half the dorm with an over-emotional psionic blast).
Or maybe it's Damion and Lex in Gloom Cookie.

...What's your favourite anime kiss?

Hmmm... does it have to be actual anime? Because the Yuna-Tidas kiss in FFX was *the* best. I'll have to think about this....

Gally Kiss
Battle Angel Alita - Alita's first kiss, because it was certainly an experience she couldn't understand in the same way as the rest of us. Her reponse being somehow more human at the same time as less human.

I too am thinking that one of my favourite kisses might be between Chamber and Husk right before the boys dorm goes karploey from psychic energy.
