X-Men, Avengers, shameless AvX fix-it fic, WIP (PG-13)
Summary: The Phoenix has come to earth, but so have the Shi'ar. The X-Men and the Avengers discover that the road to hell is paved with good intentions as they try to overcome their differences and work together to save the mutant race - and Earth itself.
This chapter: The Shi'ar fleet arrives, and the battle begins. But it's hard to fight a war of attrition when you're the ones outnumbered.
Author's note: Apologies for the long silence, which was due mostly to a nasty, lingering case of writer's block; it's been far too long between updates. But said block seems to have broken rather, um, conclusively now (she says as she laughs maniacally at the word count on the chapter). Regular updates should resume!
(Note: warning for character death contained therein. Yes, again.)
