anonymous asked:

Erik is a spider-monkey when he hugs Charles under the fort they build :)



“Why do you want to build a blanket-fort?”

“Because they’re good,” Erik answered firmly.

Charles sighed. “Yes, but–”

Erik just dropped a pile of blankets and sheets in Charles’ lap. “Help me build the fort and I’ll make you hot chocolate.”

Well, he couldn’t argue with that.




“What are you doing?”

“Being a spider-monkey.”

Charles sighed and finished his hot chocolate. “Why?” he asked.

Erik hugged him a little tighter. “Because it’s good,” he answered firmly.

Couldn’t argue with that, either. So Charles set down his mug and hugged back.


“Professor, why are you and Mr. Lehnsherr cuddling?” asked one of the littler children curiously, peering into their fort.

Charles looked down at Erik, who was asleep with his head on Charles’ shoulder. “Because it’s good,” he replied.

Although the coelacanth itself isn’t a land walker, its fins do resemble those of its close relatives who first hauled their bodies onto land with the help of these sturdy, flexible appendages, acting as an evolutionary bridge to the landlubbers that followed. Over millions of years, that transition lead to the spread of all four-limbed animals, called ‘tetrapods’, like amphibians, birds, and even the mammals that are our ancestors.
