Beautiful characterisation, nice to hear Nathan's thoughts for a change.
Makes up for Marvel's crap.
Thanks! I'm so used to canon raping fandom now.
Disclamers on a lot of fics nowadays are "I do far less damage to the characters than the writers do themselves". Because it's true.
;D I liked it, especially the comparing them to children that need to be separated. True statement.
Thank you :D The simile came naturally as I work with small children.
...THIS IS NOW MY (SEXY) REASON FOR WHY NATE IS AVOIDING WADE IN CANON.
That is totally it. Nate's scared of losing himself in Wade.
I'll contemplate more, though if I start writing and it's crap, I won't post it.
I really enjoyed reading this, the characterization won. :) Though I do admit a little editing wouldn't hurt.
What do you mean 'editing'?
What did I mean editing? I'm not entirely sure myself due to the late hour of submitting that comment. Oh, jeez, I hope my first comment didn't sound condescending.
At the time I was think I might have been mentally nitpicking at the way 'Deadpool' and 'Wade' was used interchangeably by Cable. Using 'Wade' seems so much more personal than using 'Deadpool'. Once Cable started using 'Wade' in his train of thought wouldn't he continue to use 'Wade'? Yeah, I know, it's horribly persnickety.
But I really did enjoy reading this and I'm not really sure why I left that bit about editing. Hmm, maybe you should just ignore everything written above and just know that I really liked it, because at this point I'm not sure I mean to say much less what I meant to say in the first comment.
It's a reasonable point, but I tend to try and avoid overusing a character's name, interchanging it with their other names or descriptions.
Ah, its very good to read something from Cable's perspective regarding the relationship. That man is...hard to get a feel of how he thinks. Thank you for writing this.
While I like the line about Nate and Wade as children (and I think its very true), I can't help but think that is slightly out of character for Cable to think of himself as a child... I think he must be one of those people who were born acting like they're already middle-aged.
Please write the Wade companion piece.
Generally yeah, but he's recognising here that Wade's immaturity has an influence on him. Thanks for the comment!
Beautifully written, and a great look into Cable. Definitely preferable to what Marvel's gone and done with them now that they've seen each other again XP Totally mem'ing ♥
Yesssss I like. I enjoy Cable's POV in fics - not that Wade's isn't highly amusing, but Cable should get his own voice every once in a while - and you do it well :)
Lovely characterization, my new canon on Cable, preferable to the MW crap. And that last sentence--- oh, yummy.
Excellent piece of characterization - you write a spot-on Cable.

That Demi Moore voice
First thing Nate mentions when he recovers from the lobotomy, and the first thing War!Cable says to Wade.
It's just so very, very, very, gay. I mean, Demi Moore is really sexy, and like, a lot of men's fantasy, so Nate pointing out that Wade sounds like that? CANON!
It's great to read a Nate's point, once in a while, especially when is well written like this one!
Ohh Nate, admit it: you Summers have a weak point tat make you less holier-than-thou. *nods*
Thanks :D I'm generally not very good at writing Nate's point of view, what with him being so damn intellectual.
Oooh, love it how beautifully you written how reckless and fearless Deadpool is in Cable's eyes.
