Echoes of the Fallen (BtVS/X-Men)
I don't own the characters nor do I own the pictures that were used in this manipulation. If this manip inspires you to write your own story please leave me a review with a link so that I might be able to read it.AN:
I just haven't had any inspiration lately, either to write or to create manips. I keep hoping to be struck with the all consuming need to create, but that hasn't happened recently.
What has happened is that I decided to reread some of the top stories. I started with Echoes of the Fallen
, and, while not an all consuming need, I was hit with the urge to put together a quick manip for this story. I don't think I've ever done a manip for this fic, which is really odd for me.
This looks so much better on a white background. The white of the background just kind of fades inwards to create the manip.That said, I think it came out very well either way. I tried to keep the manip looking very old and kind of dreamlike. The memories of being in Auschwitz aren't his own, but they are very
real. I think Xander would have a hard time thinking of those memories without superimposing his own face over Magneto's. It's the reason I didn't try incorporating Magneto or any of the Scoobs into the manip.
