dedicated to Dragonhulk, because when I did a series of BtVS/X-Men odd couple drabbles, he wondered why there were none featuring Xander. Now, Xander gets his own X-Men-Marvel crossover drabbles...

note: these will wander from season to season and/or series to story arc to movie, depending on what season's Xander I feel easiest to have encountering each particular X-person. There is no continuity from drabble to drabble.

note2: post s7 BtVS.

Xander smiled as he thought about his life. He never would have expected this last year. Not after dating at Sunnydale, after Anyas death. Hed figured that hed go to Africa and be alone while helping.

Hed been wrong.

Africa had introduced him to his girlfriend, a woman hed have never dared to say hello to before. But she was the most wonderful thing that had ever happened to him.

Arms slid around, and her hair brushed his arms. Xander, stop thinking so hard.

But theyre good thoughts. He leaned against her.

Are they? You were frowning.

Just how lucky I am to have you. He turned and kissed her, and her blue eyes widened.

I like those thoughts too. She smiled, her hand cupping his cheek. But I feel lucky to have you. Someone who understands why I feel so strongly for equality, someone who isnt afraid of me and my friends

Theyre mutants. Just people, with a few differences. He tugged at a lock of her white hair. Not like theyre going to get cranky and eat me for dinner.


Were together now, and its good. Why frown over the past?

Storm smiled, and life was good.

The End
