Fic: "Office Hours" [Jul. 18th, 2005|10:03 pm]

Title: Office Hours
Author: Aldalindil (tartanshell)
Characters: Hank McCoy, Peter Parker (Spider-Man), Scott Summers, Jean Grey
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: It all belongs to Marvel.
Written for: minisinoo
Request: Hank McCoy and Peter Parker: Crossover between movieverses. We saw Hank speaking in X2, and he's slated for X3. I'd love to see a story where Columbia biochemistry professor Henry McCoy discovers his student Peter Parker's secret, and attempts to befriend him. I don't care if Peter's introduced to Xavier's or not, but I want one scene in particular ... Hank and Peter bonding over science texts while hanging from the ceiling.
Summary: Peter learns a lot from Professor McCoy.
Author's Notes: Thanks to minisinoo for the fabulous prompt! I had a ball with this, and I hope its length (OMG!) will make up for its lateness. *g* Thanks to my fiancé, Nick, for the read-through, and thanks to penknife for offering to beta, though I declined because this is SO late and SO long. That being the case, all mistakes are my own. Also, though it's canon, I'll admit that I first fell in love with the idea of Hank as a Star Wars fan through artaxastra's fic "The Last of the Jedi."

Feedback and concrit are, as always, very welcome. :)

Best. Crossover. Ever.

This is just so wonderful in so many ways I don't know where to start!

Oh, this is lovely. I have such a thrill for superhero's revealing their secret identities and it's nice to see Spiderman find yet another mentor (this is a habit of his after all, in any universe). Did you ever write that sequel you mentioned?

ps. Reccing this on ficrecs.

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed this. :)

It's funny you asked me about the sequel now--I just started writing it a few days ago! It's currently eating my brain, so I expect it will be posted within a couple of weeks. :)

Thanks for reading, and for the rec, too!

Just stumbled across this story and I think it's fantastic. I love the ending, and the sense that anything's possible. :)

Ok, so with everything that was happening in my life at x-menficathon time I didn't sign up. And then I missed reading all the great stories. So I'm just now reading this because you're follow up is being recced all over my friends list.

that said.

OOOo, I love this. Of course Peter wants to join the X-Men. He wants that family. *pets them all*

Wow. and Yay.

This was a wonderful crossover. It was nice to see Peter get introduced to the X-Men through Hank because of their interest in science. What really interested me was that Hank knew that Peter was Spider-Man and that shocked Peter because Hank never told him.

Peter really feels accepted amongst the X-Men and that is probably the main reason he wanted to join them but Hank was right in why he told Peter that he shouldn't. The good thing that came out of it was that he would be able to have them as friends, which he could use. It was nice to see how well they worked together when the came up with that drug.

One of my favourite parts happened at the end when Peter showed Scott the reason why he wanted to come. Awesome. Scott's reaction was perfect and it was good to see that he accepted Peter after that. Good job

Thank you! I'm glad you liked it--it was a LOT of fun to write.

I can't take credit for that--it was minisinoo's idea.

What really interested me was that Hank knew that Peter was Spider-Man and that shocked Peter because Hank never told him.

I think Hank is pretty good about respecting people's privacy and not pressing an issue...even though Peter has to realize (eventually) that Hank tried several times to bring it up.

Peter really feels accepted amongst the X-Men and that is probably the main reason he wanted to join them but Hank was right in why he told Peter that he shouldn't.

It's a tough situation. Of course Peter wants that sense of family, but I think he comes to see (later) that you don't need to be in the X-Men to be part of it.

One of my favourite parts happened at the end when Peter showed Scott the reason why he wanted to come.

I'm glad you liked that! :)

Thanks again for reading!

Hi, I wandered over here on a rec from jenn_1. This was a wonderful fic -- I would say more except that the sheer number of comments you have already received makes me think that I would just be redundant!

I will be going on to the sequel very soon!

Okay, this is an unbelievably awesome crossover idea! I love Peter getting a chance to actually talk to someone and have a friend he can be honest with. And I just like Hank in general. :-) And Peter gets to help in a scientific capacity! I think people forget all too often that Peter is smart. His physical abilities overwhelm his intelligence in people's minds, I think.

Thank you for sharing this!

I know this fic is, like, five years old, but it's so good I just have to comment.
A friend of mine rec'd me this, she's a Spidey fan, I'm a huge Hank fan, and the idea of a crossover between the two is so, so perfect. Just the prompt had me excited.

I think I loved the car scene the most. Hank using his Hankiness to defuse an awkward situation. I love Hank. I love this fic. I think you're pretty cool, too. Thanks for writing this!

Office Hours

Only just found this piece thanks to a Google on something else that led me to a fanfic page that led me here.

Have to say this is a fantastic story; you captured Peter, Hank and the X-Men really well. I get a definite 'Ultimate' or 'Movieverse' vibe form it but it really works.

Looking forward to reading the sequel.

I just wanted to let you know that this is a fic that I reread a lot and have done for years! I just looked through the comments and it looks like I never told you that, and that's a shame, so. Thank you for having written this!
