because i wanted to make this thing, i now have a surplus of sean cassidy screencaps from xmfc so:
smooth move sean my man. i can almost imagine charles and erik spying at some corner and charles going, “he’s all right but i think i’ll teach him a thing or two about Flirting” (• ◡ •) and erik is prolly going “charles no” (ಠ_ಠ)
mutant baby adoption process complete! commence modern fix-it AU fics!
“damn, i wanted to be called mystique!”
look at him going all thoughtful. thoughtful freckly ginger mutants are the best ❀‿❀
cheeky freckly ginger mutants are okay too you know (also, hello hot damn look at alex summers’ mandible!)
hank looks appalled.
stop it are you even old enough to hit on angel?
(oh please he’s old enough to hit on moira amirite? *wink*wink* gimme all the sean/moira fics now!)
look at this
how dare you why are you so adorable
no but seriously, if you watch this scene carefully, i think they’re kind of sean-centric because caleb’s reactions to things in this scene are so perfect and adorable. glad they captured those reactions and included them in the final product~
classic. my bbs
graceful hand is graceful.
“what is that?”
it’s the father of raven’s future child of course what did you think it was?
i like this particular shot. dunno why. it’s the way he’s standing in front of angel, maybe.
also love how protective armando is throughout this whooole scene.
fucking shaw man. t(.___.t) up yours.
i love them aaalllll my bbs ;___;
“he’s not going back to prison!”
rock them john lennon glasses, cassidy oh yeah~
erik: “i’d like to talk to you about the avengers initiative.”
look at him absorbing all that new knowledge~ ლ(╹◡╹ლ)
i love that they decided to put moira in the scene as well. i also love the little eyebrow wiggle sean gives moira in the extended version. i would’ve included the screencaps from that but i’m way too lazy to hunt down my dvd kekeke~
this is what you get when you live with two over-enthusiastic scholars: you get to be the one to test out their inventions
look at how amused charles is ffs xavier
to infinity…AND BEYOND!
“you truly believe i’ll fly this time?”
“i trust you.”
“i don’t trust him.”
of course, when jumping out the window didn’t work, you move to the frickin satellite dish because surely that’ll work!
i especially like how charles lies through his teeth about believing that sean will fly this time. it’s nothing if not an experiment - he doesn’t know the outcome but says, confidently, that he does.
i also like how sean trusts charles 110% and puts all the blame on hank. poor hank. it’s prolly charles’ ability to bullshit his way through things confidently that makes sean trust him… (or maybe it’s the professorship. hard to tell.) xD
i also like to believe that if sean couldn’t fly, erik would just fish him back up using his powers. i mean, there are metal clasps on that wing-thing, right? that’s why shark lehnsherr was confident in just shoving the kid off the satellite dish.
trolls, the both of them really, charles and erik.
lookin’ good despite being in skin-tight spandex~ (sean’s legs are especially gorgeous \(,,,◕‿◕,,,)/
serves you right erik that’s what you get for being a lil’ shit. i like the way this shot turns out. alex looks like he’s judging erik heavily. sean looks like he couldn’t believe that hank just did that. charles looks like he couldn’t believe it as well. ha.
i also love the fact that sean’s totally unperturbed by what’s happened to hank. “ you’re blue and furry and have claws and fangs now? cool. so can you fly this thing y/n?”
non-judgmental freckly (and slightly stoned-looking) ginger mutants are my favourites as well~~~
“yes we do.”
(why are you so pretty)
“whoa, you back right off!”
that’s what you get for being a lil’ shit, erik (version 2.0)
may i point out that throughout this whole scene sean did not have his black-and-yellow wings but once he’s out of the plane:
they magically appear! and once he’s in the water:
they magically disappear! and once he's out of the water again:
tadaa! it’s back!
(also may i point out that it is impossible to shout under water? because the process for vocalizing involves inspiration, phonation, resonation and what-else-ation, i have forgotten, i am about to become and audiologist not a speech therapist i have no idea why they taught us all that in the first place…)
ginger bb trying so hard to save alex’s ass
and look at him go! whoo!
we are currently approaching the beach divorce.
thank you for your time.
all your tears and blood belong to us now.
we hope you enjoy the angst. bye-bye!
(shakes fists at xmfc)
(but i think it’s not much of a spoiler because brian (bryan? meh) singer did release that footage of erik reciting the names of their dead comrades on youtube, right, so we all know that sean did not make it…)
A little drabble. High school AU, Charles is in love with his best friend.
Erik looks strange straddled over the seat of the moped. It an odd juxtaposition, his long, tall body and the shining, compact machine geared to hipsters who buy them in order to wax nostalgic over their summer in Italy then sell them when the rain started. Charles thinks his friend might look better leaning against the lean, strong lines of a Harley Davidson. He doesn’t say anything though, because the smile Erik flashes him as he walks down the school steps is wide and unusually sunny. It also steals Charles’ breath away, so even if he was going to question his best friend’s decision to use his meager savings on the powder blue scooter he was standing over so proudly, he couldn’t have. Life was funny that way. Being head over heels in love with your best friend has a way of stealing your words away.
I also like to think of EDI as agender! Do you like the idea of Joker/EDI?
Agender EDI yeah! I mean, she’s clearly in a body that’s meant to be read as feminine, and she uses she/her pronouns, but I think as someone who just now has an actual body…she wouldn’t really have a gender that she thinks of herself as. If she does develop a gender, it’ll come later. Right now she’s trying to figure out what these arm things are.
You know. I used to be conflicted about Joker/EDI. Now I like it.
Because Joker’s initial language toward EDI is really shitty. It’s sexist and objectifying as hell. All the male reactions to EDI are sexist and objectifying as hell, actually (let’s talk about Kaidan, who goes bug-eyed for her when that same body bashed his brains out on Mars).
But Joker does knock it off as he gets to know her; he starts to mature (finally) and seems to really care about her if you encourage it.
And that’s how humans work. We mature and we learn and we grow and the person we are when we enter a relationship is not the same person six months, ten years, half a lifetime into that relationship (hell, we’re not even the same person if/when the relationship ends).
So yeah, Joker’s kind of a douchebro when we first meet EDI and he first expresses interest in her. But he grows out of it, showing concern for her wellbeing and interest in her as an individual beyond a great rack. If he didn’t grow out of it, or EDI didn’t reciprocate (she’s actually the first one to bring it up), I’d have issues with it and never encourage it. I like to think Shepard or Ashley (or James or Garrus or literally anyone) takes him aside and verbally slaps him across the head like “dude that is not how you treat someone you want to be your girlfriend.”
Plus, their relationship is super cute, and I also like the unconventional nature of human/robot-who-used-to-be-the-ship-and-still-kind-of-is.

Sixty-Two: Tolling Reminiscent Bells
It’s not like the other dreams.
She knows she’s dreaming, for one thing. And she’s alone. No wide-eyed child bearing cookies, no screwdriver-wielding teenager. No broken doll made up of doctored memories and might-have-beens, dressed in muddied virginal white. No dead woman in pink and white, or patent Mary Janes, offering death or forgiveness or hope.
It’s just a dream. Just a dream.
When she touches her stomach, her fingers do not come away stained with blood. When she touches her forehead, she cannot feel the strings that have been pulled, the knots untied, the pieces of the puzzle jammed together all wrong.
And yet the ache remains.
The ache always remains.
She’s wearing armor in this dream, black to hide bloodstains, black to hide amongst the shadows, the familiar lifeline of red and white stripes down her arm reminding her who she is, what she does. She’s got a full arsenal on her back, but her hands are empty.
