half of this hell website: making butch characters straight is better than making them lesbians because that would be stereotypical
me, who sees one butch lesbian character every 80 years: There Is A Difference Between Making A Lesbian An Offensive Stereotype Through Portraying Butchness As Gross Or Bad And Simply Having A Character Be A Butch Lesbian
Peter Maximoff and Kurt Wagner: Why They’d be CUTE AS HELL Together
Ok, ok, I realize it’s a rarepair. But hear me out.
Kurt’s teleportation is a really good counter to Peter’s speed. Like, Peter can go as fast as he wants but Kurt’s just gonna be gone before he gets there. They would have epic games of tag. New students would watch in slightly concerned awe, especially when Peter manages to grab Kurt’s tail just before he teleports to the roof. Charles is impressed because Kurt’s teleporting reflexes have never been better and someone Peter is managing to go even faster???
Kurt’s first introduction to American music was some earsplitting metal that Scott was listening to while working on his motorcycle and having an Angstfest™. Peter reassures him that there is much better music out there and they spend a whole day just going through Peter’s collection of records and tapes.
They watch soccer together. Kurt’s way more into it than Peter (Alles für Deutschland! Alles für Deutschland!) but Peter enjoys rooting for the opposing and/or losing team just to bug Kurt. They both shit all over England, much to Charles’ disappointment.
Peter, rebel that he is, goes up to Canada to steal contraband Kinder Eggs for Kurt because a) it’s Kurt’s favorite candy and b) it’s a chocolate egg with a surprise toy inside how cool is that what asshole made these illegal in America.
I can’t help but feel that certain segments of the Fallout fandom have a pretty serious case of rose-coloured glasses going on. I hear talk about how modern Fallout games don’t give you as much game-mechanical freedom during character creation as their classic counterparts, or how your build choices don’t matter enough, and all I can think of is the fact that in Fallout 2, like 80% of all possible character builds literally can’t survive the tutorial quest.
