character:sebastian shaw

Oh hey, I don’t think I’ve seen this one before. (Note: I have adjusted the colors of the image a bit and removed a scratch mark.)

Aww @ Charles looking all prim, proper, and professorial with his hands behind his back. And Emma is miraculously clothed! She’s not even showing any cleavage. What is happening. Meanwhile, Raven and Moira appear to have switched skirt lengths at some point. I don’t particularly recall Moira having bared that much leg (well, other than that time she stripped to her underwear during her very first scene, natch), but I hadn’t realized that this was what she was wearing when she first met Charles. Also, that huge X over their heads combined with all the bright lights makes me think they’re in an episode of the X-Files and about to be abducted by a bunch of aliens.

And excuse me, but WHERE THE HELL IS DARWIN?


Anakin Skywalker

The original Star Wars trilogy is what I breathe. Nothing can change the fact that Sebastian Shaw will always be Darth Vader to me. This is why I’ve tried to visualize here what young Anakin Skywalker would have possibly looked like, if he could have been portrayed by the original face of Darth Vader.

It is difficult to find photos of a younger Sebastian Shaw, and the 20s/30s’ film photography tends to smooth out distinctive facial features, making it even harder to get good reference pictures. However, I tried to make this portrait as realistic as I could.

It’s tense exchanges like this that make it fun to watch the Hellfire Club try to operate. When it comes right down to it, a whole bunch of sociopathic, evil-doers just aren’t going to be able to cooperate with each other long enough to get anything productive done. Just look at the Republican party. Man, I really liked the Legion TV series, but I heard that a Hellfire Club show was pitched first. That show would have been so awesome.

gerec  asked:

1, 2, 4, 5, 6!!!


Thank you for asking. :)

1. What OTPs in your fandom(s) do you just not get?

I don’t believe it’s actually an “OTP”, but I don’t get Shaw/Charles. 

Shaw is linked to Erik’s past, he made him suffer so much… and I get the weird feeling that Erik’s pain is being transferred to Charles because… well the reason eludes me. Also it’s hard for me to accept that Charles would even be interested in the first place. Charles dating Shaw? Hmm… :/ Charles punching Shaw in the face? Oh very good, very good! :)

2. Are there any popular fandom OTPs you only BroTP?

Yes. Basically all the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit OTPs. I don’t know why.  

Aren’t they adorable! I love them all. ❤

4. Do you have a NoTP in your fandom? Are they a popular OTP?

I’m not sure it’s popular, but I can’t ship Erik/Raven, and I blame the new X-Men movies for that. Their “romance” was so unnecessary, and they kept shoving it down our throats… they never blatantly confirmed that they had a very torrid affair all right, but god the insinuations throughout Days of Future Past turned me off… 

And this scene. Is it supposed to be charged with sexual tension? I really can’t feel it.

5. Has fandom ever ruined a pairing for you?

No actually fandom generally intensifies everything for me, in a good way naturally. :)

6. Has fandom ever made you enjoy a pairing you previously hated?

Not exactly. I didn’t hate it. Fandom made me like a pairing, and it completely took me by surprise. Erik/Logan? Wait what? I NEVER thought about that ship, NEVER, and then one day it randomly appeared on my dash and BANG I died. Now I like it. Hell I even made a gifset about them a few months ago using Slow West and Australia. That was fun.
