Kiotr - Kitty Pryde and Colossus fans

the kiss

An LJ fandom community dedicated to Kitty Pryde and Colossus of The X-Men.



July 5th, 2018

Read the issue today. Mixed bag. Looks like Guggenheim might be trying to do some kind of damage control. Sorry, it's way too late for that.


The goodbye between Colossus and Kitty was eerily reminiscent of Jeremy Harper's latest short fic here, and man, it HURT. He wants to go back to Russia. He still loves her. She still loves him. And yet somehow none of this even matters. Derp, derp.

The DoFP sidestory left me shaking my head with a WTF. How would Rachel remember her past as being married to Kurt when he died with his wife Amanda and Prof X (an amazing panel drawn by Bill Sienkevitch, showing Charles' wheelchair spinning). Why did Forge build the jammer instead of Franklin Richards? Is this Mesmero's doing? Is he really that good of a telepath?? If so, then let's blame HIM for Kitty's sudden insanity. Interestingly, we have Kate Pryde-Rasputin and Colossus married in this scenario as well.


Why would Kate suddenly abandon trying to resuscitate Peter to charge the guard? Why leave him? Why put their baby in harm's way? Ugh. The flow in this story is jerky and little makes sense.

This month's cover and next month's doesn't look right. They're very misleading.

The art was decent anyway.

Dear Anonymous,

Welcome to our Kiotr Community! I'd like to thank you for sharing your recent conversation with Mark Guggenheim. I realize that an anonymous comment submitted here isn't necessarily fact based, but to me it reads as genuine and sincere. Rather than respond to the message that you left in the comments section; I thought it deserved a post of its own. I'm reprinting it below.

"Hello there! Long time x-fan who stumbled across this site and I thought I'd throw in what little info I have. I talked to Mr. Guggenheim (he was signing at my local comic shop) and he made it clear this was not his plan and that he always intended for them to get married at the end of his run. Someone else made this decision, and though he didn't say who, my guess would be it happened when the x-books switched editors. He couldn't tell me when the change was made, but he did say he already knew by the time he wrote the wedding special. I asked if there was any hope for the pair and he said not right now, because if they continued to be together then what would be the point of her leaving him at the alter. But he did say this is a 40 year relationship, that someone will want them back together, and that he hopes that he will eventually get to write their wedding. He was pretty adamant about that last part.

He was very friendly and careful with his words, but I got the impression he was upset with how everything turned out. He's clearly a big Kiotr shipper and wants to see them together and happy. I do think the reason the front half of the issue shows them so excited and in love is because this was the original script for the wedding before he was forced to implode the relationship. I walked away from the signing feeling bad for the guy. He wants to stay with Marvel (he mentioned wanting to write Star Wars under his original x-book editor Mark Pannicia) and keep on good terms with them. I don't know if this info makes you feel better or worse, but at least you know there's a writer out there who still wants to marry them."

It's little comfort, but I'll take what I can get. ; - )

Interesting to think that Guggenheim could be an honest to goodness Kiotr fan. It's heartening to think that there are in fact some writers who support this ship. Now, if only we could get the editors at Marvel on board...

Thank You for passing along the info. Hope you'll stick around!

Left feeling a little queasy after the whole 'Til Death Do Us Part nightmare? Need a little Pepto?

I've got something better! An author who, like Jeremy Harper (and unlike Mark Guggenheim) can actually write a Kiotr centric X-Men story!

Darkstorm 5000 author of fan fave A Force to be Reckoned With has two recent stories you'll be interested in -

This BETTER Be Good! *Guest starring Deadpool and Negasonic Teenage Warhead! Funny as hell, just like you'd expect with Deadpool along for the ride. Look out! That fourth wall is about to cave in... Rated M (because, you know, Deadpool!)

You Got It All The wedding Kitty and Peter SHOULD have had. Both moving and beautiful, this story will leave you smiling. Rated T

And because it's just So Damn Good it needs to be read again -

Jeremy Harper's Deathless - Rated M

Couple all that with Jeremy's new story below and you have some legit entertainment. Thank you gentlemen, for giving us something GOOD to read. After this week, we fans desperately need it.

Have any fanfic recs to share? Send them this way!

A Farewell

“So you are really leaving?”

Piotr Rasputin threw the last of his luggage into the back of the van and slammed the doors closed before turning to face Ororo. As always, she looked elegant and beautiful, but her full lips were curved in a frown of worry, her flawless brow creased with concern.

“Do you honestly expect me to stay, Windrider?” Peter asked, his voice harsh, and unable to keep the scowl off his face. “After she humiliated me in front of everyone? After she tore my heart out and trod upon it in front of the altar?”

Ororo said nothing, for there was nothing to say – no words she could find to salve the open, bleeding wounds on his soul, no argument or plea that would not sound self-serving and callous. She sighed and shook her head.

“No,” she said with soft sadness. “I do not.”

Peter nodded once, then let out a bark of mirthless laughter, bitter as Siberian wind.

“I will give Katherine this much – she has well and truly paid me back for when I broke up with her after I returned from Battleworld those years ago.”

Ororo winced internally. Katherine. Not Katya, not even Kitty, but Katherine. Peter using her full name like that was a sign of just how furious he was. By nature he was a gentle man, and by habit tended toward the stoic, but his anger was volcanic on the rare occasions it exerted itself. Suddenly she feared for him, worried that in his rage he would harm himself, exacerbate the great pain he was already suffering.

“Where are you going,” she asked, “and when do you think you'll return?”

He grimaced, shrugging his shoulders almost defensively.

“I do not know,” he admitted. “I can barely think straight as it is. I think... I think I'll just let the wind blow me where it will, at least for a while. As for when I'll be back...” He sighed, reached up to rub his eyes. “Again, I don't know. But I think I'll be away for a long time.”

“You'll keep in touch,” said Ororo, her tone gentle but brooking no argument. “You'll let us know how you are.”

“I will, Storm.”

“And you'll call me if you need help.”

“I will. I promise.”

Ororo sighed and walked to him, took hold of Peter with a strong embrace. He hugged her back with a mournful sigh, the anger ebbing from his countenance, leaving behind nothing but a deep, wearying pain. Ororo pulled away a little, her deep blue eyes staring into his sky-blue ones. She reached up to cup the back of his head, pulling him down toward her.

“Ororo?” he asked, brow furrowing questioningly. His eyes went wide when she kissed him on the mouth. It was chaste, but replete with the deep love she had for this wonderful, gentle man, one of her dearest friends, her younger brother in all but blood.

When she broke the kiss Peter looked down at her, dazed, but then suddenly he chuckled, the laugh shaky but genuine, no wolfish, hateful bark.

“You know, when I was sixteen I'd have fantasies of you kissing me.”

“And how does the reality compare?” she asked.

“Hard to say, since my feelings for you are far different now than they were when I was a boy.” He sighed and kissed her on the forehead. “I love you, Ororo. My dearest elder sister.”

“And I love you, little brother. Take care of yourself, Peter. You are angry right now. You have every right to be. But please, do not let it consume you.”

“I won't. My word on it.” He sighed again, touching his forehead to hers before hugging her one last time. “Dosvedanya, Ororo.”

Ororo watched him drive off, and stayed standing in the drive way for a time after the van had dwindled from sight. She sighed, wiping tears from her eyes with the back of a slender wrist before assuming a stern expression. It was time to have a very long, very serious talk with her Kitten.

OMG. Where to start...? Kitty and Illyana have NEVER been written so out of character before. Peter is written fine, but he should've had WAY more dialogue. Kitty and Illyana both got character assassinated here - sacrificed so Rogue and Gambit look good? I've read a lot of crap during decades of collecting, but this takes the wedding cake.

I'm so confused. Are they staying together, but not marrying?? We didn't have any resolution. Peter asked the same question I did. Where does this leave us?. And of course we never see an answer. The panel of Kitty and Peter looking into each others eyes when the rabbi says, No matter what, I'll always find my way back to you. It's almost like Guggenheim wants to leave a back door open, the hack. Yeah, by all means let a better writer clean up the mess that's been made, but there's also the ring of finality that says this is The End

This story is one of the cheapest, silliest, cliche ridden comics I've ever read. It's just BAD. Wanna see for yourself?

Don't pay Marvel for this shit when you can read it for FREE.

I feel used, tricked, you name it. What an asinine stunt. What an incredible 'eff you' to the fans. We've hit the bottom of the barrel, folks, and nobody's sorrier than me.

PS: Did anybody catch Deadpool crashing the rehearsal dinner? Lol

We Got Punked

Kitty and Peter - This Sucks
Last evening I was at the Bleeding Cool News website wanting to see if I could find more info about the Wedding Issue's classified cover. Well, I found it.

Marvel, you are a Special Sort of SICK, aren't you?

SPOILERS are in the links for X-Men Gold 30. You better sit down.




Has Kitty been brainwashed somehow??

I'm so sorry everyone...

In case there are still any Kitor fans out there... our dreams are about to become reality... http://www.geekexchange.com/previews/marvel-teases-the-wedding-of-the-century-in-x-men-gold-30/

early appearances are that Mr. Guggenheim is just mining the old Kitty-Piotr relationship for soap opera moments and it seems like he'll be throwing Colossus under the bus.


this ties in with the just released X-men Prime where

I told my LCS to pull this - it's almost my dream team, after all, but this seems to be Ellis-level character assassination

Nrama: Not to get too fanboyish, but Kitty Pryde is one of my favorite X-Men too, along with Colossues (sic). With both of them on the team, is there a chance of seeing their romance rekindled?

Guggenheim: I don’t think it’s possible to get too fanboyish -- particularly with this book. I don’t want to spoil what I’m going to do, but I’ll not spoil it by spoiling it, in a way. Daniel Ketchum, my editor and I, one of the things we talk about a lot is that the best X-Men books, the classic X-Men books, are the ones where there’s a certain amount of superheroics and action, but the books really live in the “soap opera” elements. So with that in mind, I didn’t accidentally put Colossus on the team with Kitty. Make of that what you will.

Kitty leading Piotr, Kurt, Rachel, Ororo and Old Man Logan, penned by Marc Guggenheim of "Arrow" fame.

might get me to pick up an X-book for the first time since 2011.

Hey people!

Polar Bear
It's me again. I'm not sure who still checks this, but I wrote a Kiotr fanfic and figured I'd post it here in case anyone cared to read it. Here's a Link to it. It's just about Kitty and Piotr going on a date and it ends up in a fairly typical X-men fashion. Hope everyone here is doing well! I wish this place was still active, but I know I'm waaay late to this ship and it's been years since it's been canon.. but I'm still around and rooting for it!

February 17th, 2016

.. Is actually done pretty great! No Kitty at all (unfortunately), but at least one of the two of them got better presentation and way more screen time than he ever got in all his prior X-men movie appearances combined. Looks and sounds better, too. Definitely recommend going to see it for the big guy alone, though Deadpool itself was also a good movie. =]

I also really like Colossus in a teaching role with younger mutants/students like Negasonic.

Hello to the other torch-bearers for KIOTR. Thanks for the hints about what's going on in the Marvel comics U. Now I don't feel so bad about not keeping up.

September 17th, 2015

.. but I recently, finally, decided to read Joss Whedon's AXM run all the way through and I love this 'ship and actually wrote a little thing for them.

Actually, it's a correction of their brekaup in Uncanny X-men 544, after he becomes Colossonaut, because I read that and felt that they were really, really poorly handled there. I don't know if anyone still checks up on this place, if you care to see it or not, but here's a [Link] for you in case you care to read my attempt at fixing a bit of canon. It's rough, and I think I made Kitty a bit *too* girlish there at the end, but I think it works. I might try to write more for 'em.

Hope y'all are doing well! I joined in one of the last chats y'all had before you stopped. You're cool people, though I don't really know any of you that well. Cheers.

I hope everyone is having a happy and pleasant Christmas season.

Seriously. Go see it. There's only about five seconds of Kiotr payoff in the movie, but it most definitely sails that ship!

January 29th, 2014

I just saw a preview for the movie, and I have to ask, how much of the original story is intact?
