Alan: A Bat Family

CW: ableist language
 
In which we take flight with the stories of the Alan, a creature of the Itneg people's folklore. Also, the unexpected benefits of child fostering, giant bats, and capitalist X-men.
 
Of course, a giant thank you to our patrons Lee, Ellie, Kenneth and Erwin! May your eventual children (should you decide to have one) also bring you gold and valuables! If you don't want to have one, we hope you get gold and valuables anyway!
