Fandoms: X-Men (Comicverse), New Mutants (Comics), Kzin, Larry Niven, Known Space

Much of this story is based upon the writing of Paul Chafe’s Destiny’s Forge, a Man-Kzin war novel based upon Larry Niven’s Known Space series (Niven is one of my favorite authors and Paul Chafe’s work is the most detailed about the Kzin Homeworld). Originally this was going to be apart of a memory flashback in the story Girl’s night out II (chapter 13) based upon the phrase “Scream and leap”. But it became far too serious, and long, for that story.
Interestingly, I’ve found that there is almost no Larry Niven Fan Fiction, a state of affairs I find most unsatisfactory. Although the Man-Kzin war series consists of a large number of author other then Mr. Niven playing with the Kzin so one might suppose that Kzin Fan Fiction is actually in print. Oh, and when Kitty first saw the teleporting disks in limbo she called then Niven stepping disks, proof that Claremont read Niven, so you should give it a shot. I tend to think most man-cat creatures in fiction trace back to Niven.
