“Ten Little Soldier Boys went out to dine; One choked his little self and then there were nine.
Nine Little Soldier Boys stayed up very late; One overslept himself and then there were eight.
Eight Little Soldier Boys travelling in Devon; One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.
Seven Little Soldier Boys chopping up sticks; One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
Six Little Soldier Boys playing with a hive; A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
Five Little Soldier Boys going in for law; One got in Chancery and then there were four.
Four Little Soldier Boys going out to sea; A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
Three Little Soldier Boys walking in the zoo; A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
Two Little Soldier Boys sitting in the sun; One got frizzled up and then there was One.
One Little Soldier Boy left all alone; He went and hanged himself and then there were none.”

———-[UPDATED]———–
- ACADEMY X - faculty cast

school based team, teaching and training the new generation of mutants

ROGUE headmistress (combat teacher)

MAGNETO (survival teacher)

ICEMAN (maths teacher)

FIRESTAR (philosophy and ethics teacher)

GAMBIT (ruse and tactics teacher)

CYPHER (litterature & communication teacher)

SILHOUETTE (history and geopolitics teacher)

- I would re-create the Rogue/Mags/Gambit triangle only to end it all to reveal Rogue doesn’t it any of the two to be happy.

- Maybe keep on building on Firestar’s attraction to Iceman, while he begins to question his own sexuality and see her as a confident more than anything. 

- Cypher be the loner of the group and the narrator. Having been a student that got killed, he would be the most dedicated and caring teacher to his students, to prevent they ever meet a similar fate.

- Firestar would butt head with Magneto often, and argue that she is a survivor too (her battle against cancer, her old team getting killed in Civil War)

- Silhouette would bring a much needed broader perspective and help the students figure out what “role” they want to play

- Firestar and Silhouette would really become close friends and often act as outside points of view on the crazy life of the x-men

- Rogue and Iceman would be drinking buddies

as for their enemies, I would try to avoid having the school attacked too much, and rely more on internal soap dramas and reality based topics like media manipulation, teen suicide, right-wing conservatives, environmental issues, bullying, illiteracy, cultural appropriation, police brutalities.

(’And Then There Were None’ has always been one of my favourite books/plays and the new miniseries is SO good and you can guarantee I’m saving my money for the DVD oh my word.)

To celebrate Agatha Christie’s 125th Anniversary, the BBC brings her hugely acclaimed book and one of the best-selling crime novels of all time to life in thrilling murder mystery drama, And Then There Were None.
Featuring a stunning all-star cast, it makes its DVD debut on 11 January 2016 from RLJ Entertainment’s Acorn label following its broadcast on BBC One over the Christmas holidays.
Set in 1939 this exciting, powerful three-part series follows ten strangers with dubious pasts who are drawn to a mysterious mansion on a remote island off the Devon coast. As the weather turns, they find themselves stranded and their hosts mysteriously absent. They soon discover they are each accused of a terrible crime for which a price must now be paid.
When members of the party start to mysteriously die; brutally slaughtered one by one, the ill-fated guests realise they may be harbouring the murderer among them. For if all are destined to die, who can their executioner be?

With a stellar cast including Douglas Booth (Great Expectations, The Riot Club), Charles Dance (Game of Thrones, The Imitation Game), Maeve Dermody (Black Water, Beautiful Kate), Burn Gorman (The Dark Knight Rises, Torchwood), Anna Maxwell Martin (The Bletchley Circle, Philomena), Sam Neill (Peaky Blinders, Jurassic Park), Miranda Richardson (Mapp & Lucia, Parade’s End), Toby Stephens (Black Sails, Jane Eyre), Noah Taylor (Peaky Blinders, Game of Thrones) and Aidan Turner (Poldark, The Hobbit Trilogy), this grippingly dark drama is written by Sarah Phelps (The Casual Vacancy, Great Expectations), directed by award-winning Craig Viveiros (The Liability, Ghosted) and produced by Mammoth Screen and Agatha Christie Productions.
Who will survive and who is the killer? It’s time to find out in And Then There Were None.

Leo Fitz has a problem. He’s been so busy lately, and he just had no time to file the paperwork for his work visa. He never intended for it to bite him in the ass with threats of deportation! Luckily, his assistant, Grant Ward, is ready, and with some coddling, willing, to fill the role of his American fiance. All they need to do is get through one little interview with a federal officer. And survive a weekend in Massachusetts with Grant’s family. What could go wrong?

Written for Round 3 of the Agents of SHIELD Big Bang. After re-watching The Proposal on Netflix, I couldn’t help myself. That movie was begging me to write a Fitzward AU of it. 

Cameos include the OT7, Grant’s family, and a bunch of others to fill out the roster. And, of course, no big bang would be complete without the art. Once again, I was lucky enough to receive amazing, mindblowing, perfect art from Steph, and I honestly cannot thank her enough for bringing my story to life.
