Gabriel-Axel

Headcanon that Axel will just randomly pick people up for no reason. He wants to talk to Jesse and you’re in the way? Picked up. He wants to show you this cool TNT thing that totally isn’t gonna get you killed he promises? Picked up. Not even the old order is safe. He’ll pick up Ivor just because it annoys him. He wants to pick up Magnus to go mess with TNT or picks up Ellegaard because she’s being to nerdy with Olivia. Even Gabriel isn’t safe from Axel

As usual I’ve done the “only one film per director” thing. Rohmer and some silent Ozus are hovering just outside the top 20…

My com crashed halfway through but I had a screen shot of gab and soren so I just had to redraw axel, which is why his shading looks weird.
Gab is a super athlete who retired and is working as a coach, and soren is the principle, axel is pretty much the same just a different outfit. Still don’t know what I’m gunna do about ruben…. maybe non verbal younger cousin??
