Notes, spoilers, caveats, thanks: Thanks to likeadeuce for the idea. Spoilers for the run of Astonishing X-Men, the Emperor Vulcan miniseries, and random bits of X-Men comics since 1980. Thanks to sionnain for the beta and hand-holding.
Disclaimer: The characters are not mine, they belong to Marvel comics and Joss Whedon and Ed Brubaker and, I suppose, Chris Claremont, and are used for entertainment purposes only.

Sometimes things can feel so incredibly right you have to do them and at the same time, in retrospect, be monumentally stupid. And then, before you can explain, or try to set things right--you get blindsided by reality.

Each time you wake, there's this delicious, liminal moment...when you're not quite sure yet what's real and what's still a dream. How do I tell the difference? My dreams have happy endings.
