X-Men: Evolution tho

I feel like people are forgetting how great this show is so I want to remind you all that:

  • Mystique was literally every new character and every other villain
  • I’m not kidding. New student? Mystique.The principal? Mystique. That Scottish punk rocker? Mystique.
  • That bird? Also Mystique. If someone is not a main character then they are Mystique.
  • Sometimes if someone is a main character they are still Mystique, like the episode where it turns out that Professor X was Mystique for the whole season
  • Magneto menacingly twirls paperclips in the air in like half the scenes
  • Magneto refuses to stand and instead floats at all times, even if it’s just an inch above the ground
  • Magneto is only shown as a helmet hiding in the shadows for the entire first season
  • Storm is boss as hell and was worshiped as a goddess when she was younger
  • There was an episode where all of the girls lowkey started a gang and tore shit up and kicked the asses of villains more effectively than the entire X-team did for the whole series???
  • Wolverine and Sabretooth fought every time they saw each other. In the mall? On top of a parking garage? While on motorcyles? Fight WITH THE MOTORCYCLES? Like they could literally smell one another miles away and they would run through the whole city just to fight one another, it’s ridiculous
  • The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants crashed a high school soccer game once
  • Everyone in the Brotherhood is a sassy asshole and I love it, esp Quicksilver
  • Professor X is completely unfit to supervise children but people keep giving him their children to supervise
  • Including his own son, whom he, predictably, also failed to supervise
  • There was an episode where hunters caught Beast because they thought he was Bigfoot
  • Right before Jean was going to confess her ~feelings~ to Scott Mystique fucking kidnaps him and throws him to wolves in the desert lol. Professor X also refused to believe another fucking telepath when she said Scott was in danger
  • One of the characters joins a cabal of sewer mutants after he is disfigured by drinking soda that functions as mutant poison
  • Magneto had some secret headquarters at a ski resort
  • Blob knows how to make radish roses
  • The show is surprisingly positive and has great female characters and also some really good commentary about marginalized groups???
  • It’s also really true to the comics and does a lot of great side characters justice
  • Wolverine is like two feet tall in the show, just like in the comics, he’s a great angry munchkin tbh

Based of course on Rob Cantors “Shia Labeouf”.

You’re walking through the Shades
There’s no one around and your victim is dead
Out of the corner of your eye, you spot him
(Samuel Vimes)

He’s following you about thirty feet back
He yells “You’re nicked, chum!” and breaks into a sprint
(Samuel Vimes)

You need somewhere to run but you’re all turned around
He’s almost upon you now, and he can see…
There’s blood on your hands, oh shit, there’s blood everywhere!

Running for your life from Samuel Vimes!
Try to hide your knife, it’s Samuel Vimes!
Lurking in the shadows!
His Grace, the Duke of Ankh, Samuel Vimes!

Running in the streets, Samuel Vimes!
Following his beat, Samuel Vimes!
Copper of the city!
Captain of the Night Watch, Samuel Vimes!

(Then probably it could go into the events of any one of the Watch Books–Men at Arms or Night Watch would be choice.)

Whatever the opposite of a Poker face is, Pearl has that. Girl just cannot hide her emotions for a second.

So this reaction right here tells me that all three of them know that this thing really is. And look at Garnet, that’s the pose of someone who’s ready to fight.

What was this gem? 

That shadow coming over Steven was really fucking ominous.

Shit is gonna get serious isn’t it?

Yeah, Amethyst has something to do with whatever gem is there, that is anger right there and I have no idea what’s provoking that reaction.

Exolvo: daedelus in the labyrinth

To all of you who said of course I wasn’t writing puppies and rainbows, congrats, you’re all correct.  Here, have some Exolvo, circa 3rd year.

She’s hiding in a corner of the Library. It’s a nice little corner, out of the way, far from the windows, and sometimes half in shadow. The light isn’t always the best, but that’s what spells are for. Okay, the reason Elsa likes it is because it’s quiet and hidden away from everyone else, a table all for herself and away from the stares and whispers from everyone else in the school. Ever since that DADA class, ever since the boggart…
