So you know that famous line “a plague o’ both your houses”? The line that Mercutio says like three times after getting stabbed?
Well it’s pretty obvious that it’s foreshadowing for the end when a both Montague and a Capulet kick the bucket
But it gets better
Because the reason why Romeo kills himself (which makes Juliet kill herself) is that he didn’t get the letter explaining the whole “Friar Lawrence’s guide to faking your own death and running away with your exiled lover in just 2 days!” plan and thus thinks that Juliet’s actually dead and so death and such occurs
And why didn’t Romeo get the letter?
Because Friar John was stopped by, of all things, a plague.
Sometimes I think my myself “Gee, I used to read more before I joined this fandom” and then I realize Harry and Louis weave metaphors and symbols into their lives better than any damn book I’ve ever read
ok, i’m listening to “Guardians of the Whills Suite” from the Rogue One soundtrack, which is basically the theme for Baze and Chirrut since it played when they died and when they first appeared, and they were both guardians of the kyber crystals, or guardians of the whills like george lucas’ original title for star wars. anyways, i realized the opening notes are exactly the same as the opening notes for “Across the Stars”, with an oboe (or english horn i can’t tell) playing it just like in across the stars. so i’m screaming cause across the stars was a love theme for anakin and padmé, WHICH MEANS GUARDIANS OF THE WHILLS IS THE LOVE THEME FOR BAZE AND CHIRRUT. it’s confirmed canon, fight me.
Au in which Vex is a part of Vox Machina but Vax stayed with the Clasp. He’s less codependent but has a lot more guilt and feels stuck and trapped. Sometimes he can get away from his job to help out his sister and her friends. He never stays too long because it gets harder to leave the more time he spends around them.
And then one day he spends a day with Vex in Emon before she and the rest of VM go on some treasure hunting job. And he finds himself in a store that not even the Clasp will consider stealing from. He has such a wonderful time perusing the wares of Gilmore’s store and spending time with Vex that he doesn’t even notice the tingling sensation around his Clasp brand/tattoo.
Gilmore, however, is acutely aware of the Clasp member in his store and keeps an eye on the half-elf until he and his twin purchase their supplies. Gil was obviously expecting the professional thief to be the one to try and charm his way into a lower price. So being the clever and charismatic bastard he is, Gilmore sort of goes on the flirting offensive, as it’s a tactic that has worked wonders for him previously.
He manages to hide his surprise when it’s the sister that starts haggling instead while the Clasp member turns beet red at the slightest hint of flirtation. Gilmore takes pity on them and takes a small amount of gold off the price.
It takes the entirety of the time that Vex spends haggling, but before they leave Vax finally plucks up enough courage to flirt back with the gold-laden shop owner. It’s awkward but earnest and Gilmore is honestly charmed despite himself.
Seeing as how Vax is consistently in Emon while his sister and her pals go adventuring, he can visit the store more often.
Cue some drama with his superiors finding out that he’s getting chummy with Gil, but then immediately ordering him to use his new friendship for their gain. Just before that plot comes to a head, the Chroma Conclave attacks Emon.
Prompt: (Request from Anon)
hii! can i request a chill/fluffy charles x reader (ft the rest of the
team) where theyre all talking about zodiac signs over breakfast and
arguing about whos sign is the best and everything, and raven being
totally obsessed with which signs are the most compatible (+reader is an
aries and id imagine charles is an aquarius or taurus? but idk if
theres any canon info on that or not) this might be a corny request but
itd be cute i think! if you do it thanks in advance!!❤♈️
Anon, I hope I did this justice for you. I LOVED this idea because I love astrology and X-Men. I found all the signs (save for Reader and Charles) online, so idk if it’s super accurate but I went with it! I hope you all enjoy it!
“I’m serious, I’m a Cancer,” Raven insisted as she sat at the large round breakfast table in the breakfast nook of the kitchen.
“You know, I can see it,” Hank agreed as he eyed her sweetly.
“Thank you, Hank!” she said, thrusting her hand at him.
You weren’t sure how it got started, but as everyone was making waffles, pancakes, toast, sausage, bacon, potatoes, and pouring cereal, milk, orange juice, or coffee, a huge thing had erupted about astrology. Raven was trying to tell everyone she was a Cancer.
“But I’m a Cancer too,” Peter interjected. “And you and I are nothing alike.”
You scoffed. “As if. You two are the most smart assed, sneaky, overly clever bastards here. You’re almost like twins.”
“I’ll take that as a compliment,” Raven said with a smile.
“Okay, Y/N, what about you, huh? What magical sign are you?” Peter asked, so far he’d made no bones about how silly it was to discuss zodiacs.
“I’m an Aries,” you informed sticking your tongue out.
“Figures,” Scott said. “What with the fire breath and all. Aries is a fire sign so…” he shrugged.
“Good morning, everyone,” Charles greeted as he entered and grabbed a cup of coffee, and made a plate of bacon and pancakes. Your stomach felt the full force of the butterflies erupting around inside. You’d had a bit of a crush on the Professor for a while but you were a student-teacher at the school so you weren’t sure how appropriate that would be to make a move. Yet, that didn’t stop Raven from constantly pushing you two together.
“Good mornings” rang out from each of the students and teachers around the table.
“What are you all so animatedly discussing? I could hear you well down the hall,” he informed as he sat down and sipped his coffee.
“Astrology,” Jean said simply.
“Ah yes. Let me guess, Raven brought this up,” he said with a teasing smirk at his friend.
“How did you know?” Jean asked.
“See when we used to go around pubs–”
Raven smacked his arm and he began laughing.
“Shut up,” she instructed. “No one needs to hear that.”
“Professor, what’s your sign?” Jubilee asked.
“I’m an Aquarius,” he informed simply.
“Makes sense,” she said. “They’re usually truthful, inquisitive, highly intelligent, and kind.”
“Oh please, you could apply that mumbo-jumbo to anyone,” Peter said. “Besides, Cancers are sympathetic, sensitive, and caring too, no different.”
“Yes, but Cancers are very emotionally driven while Aquarius are much more thought driven,” Jubilee added.
“So what’s yours then?” Peter encouraged.
“Pisces!” she announced with pride as she sat up a little bit.
“Why am I not surprised?” Logan said in a deep voice. He’d been rather quiet through the whole ordeal except a smirk here or there.
“And just what is that supposed to mean?” Jubilee demanded, turning to the hulking man on her left.
“Means you’re spunky and artistic. Of all the Pisces I’ve met, they’re all just like you,” he informed nonchalantly.
“So you mean they’re all great?” she said with a scrunch of her nose.
“Please, we all know no one can get anything done without a Capricorn,” Scott boasted before leaning back and tucking his hands behind his head.
“Let me guess, you’re a mer-goat?” Peter said. “Psht.”
“I’ll have you know, I’m ambitious, determined, and practical. All the things you aren’t, Mr. Cancer,” he shot back.
“I’m shaking in my boots, the goat is gonna get me.”
“Hank, what’s yours?” Raven asked before she quickly followed up with. “No! Let us guess.”
“I bet it’s Taurus,” Peter said.
“I’m thinking Virgo,” you offered.
“Wrong, both of you,” Hank informed.
“Is it Leo?” Raven tried as she had been staring at him as if he were a puzzle.
“Yes, how did you know?”
“Simple. Leo is lion. Lions are known for their heart, being optimistic, kind, and loyal,” she explained with a kind smile.
“Right you are,” Hank agreed with the raise of his coffee cup.
“Lion is a beast, after all,” Logan said with a nudge to Hank who gave a half-smile.
“Oh, Logan, what’s your sign?” you asked.
“Oh, no, I’m not getting involved in this BS.”
“Come on, it’s just for fun.”
“I don’t even know it,” he said. You weren’t sure if he was lying or legitimately didn’t care to remember.
“Well what’s your birthday?”
He told everyone with a roll of his eyes.
“Taurus,” Raven said. “He’s a Taurus. You know, I can see it now. Practical…ambitious, reliable.”
“Great, I sound like a new appliance or car,” Logan scoffed, still poring over the newspaper.
Everyone laughed as they went back to eating for a second before Raven broke the clatter of dishes and chewing.
“You know, none of the signs mean anything without knowing who they go best with,” she offered, her eyes flickered to you. Your stomach knotted as you realized where she was taking this.
“Oh, yes!” Jubilee agreed.
“So let’s see,” she started, eyeing the table. I’m Cancer and we’re best with….Taurus?” she informed, pulling her expansive astrology knowledge to the forefront of her mind. “So Logan, you and Peter should go on a date,” she joked as everyone laughed at the expression on Logan’s face.
Peter made a kissing face toward Logan before his middle claw came out. “You’re not my type,” he informed with a snort.
Laughter rumbled around the table.
“Wait, Jean what’s your sign?” you asked. “We have to know if you and Scott are compatible.”
“I’m a Virgo,” she said quietly, her gaze dancing to Scott next to her.
“Oh, yeah,” you said as if it was obvious. “Virgo and Capricorn are a match made in heaven. Both are practical, driven, loyal, and ambitious.”
“Virgos are also perfectionists, which rings true with Jean,” Peter said.
“I am not a perfectionist,” she argued. “I just like things to be their best!”
Another roll of laughter went around the table.
“Okay, fine, maybe I’m a bit of a perfectionist.”
Peter coughed, “Control freak.”
“Har-Har,” she sneered at him.
“So that leaves Jubilee. Pisces, right?” Raven confirmed as Jubilee nodded. “I think the only person you fit with at the table is Peter…”
“I’m fine with that,” she informed as she stared at him.
“We should put it to the test. Everyone here who matches the zodiac should go on date,” Peter offered.
“That’s dumb,” Scott said.
“You just think it’s dumb because you’re already dating your match. This Saturday, we all date our match. So that’d be me and Jubilee; Jean and Scott; Raven, you and Logan.”
“Do I have to?’ she pouted.
“You could do worse, sister,” Logan insisted.
“Hmm, so that leaves Hank, Charles, and Y/N. Y/N, you’re an Aries, right? I hear they go good with Aquarius.”
“I-uh-yeah….I wouldn’t know,” you said, suddenly flustered. Your face was red, you were aware, and being aware made it all the worse.
No one else had known about your crush on Charles except Raven, now it seemed everyone who was looking at your face was keenly aware of your embarrassment.
“What about it, Y/N? Care for a date?” Charles offered, flashing a grin that took your breath away.
“Uh…sure,” you whispered.
“Wait, so where does that leave me?” Hank asked. At that moment, Storm walked in.
“Storm, what’s your sign?” Raven asked as she turned around while Storm fixed a plate.
“My zodiac? It’s Libra, why?”
“Perfect! Libra and Leo go together.”
“Uh, Storm, would you want to go on a date this Saturday? We’re trying to prove something,” Hank informed, feeling silly.
“Would I ever! Yes! Let’s do it. I don’t know what we’re proving, but I’m down.”
“There, it’s settled! Everyone will have a date and we’ll go over who had the better time on Sunday.”
“I’m very much looking forward to this,” Charles informed as he stared at you.
