Frost (a langst mini fic )

I don’t really know how to describe this AU besides the fact that lance has ice powers and its a bit short ( @moppingleshitoutofyou ) hope you guys like it!

check out some of my other mini fics here


At first, Lance had thought they were beautiful. He wasn’t exactly sure when they got there or even how they got there, all he knew was that they were lovely.

 The first time he noticed them was when he was changing out of his pajamas and saw a sprinkle of blue gracing his stomach in the mirror. Amazed, he had glanced down and stare at the light blue freckles that dusted his stomach, like a sky full of stars. He remembered how they seemed to glint under the soft lighting in his room like jewels. 

He also remembered the pain that came soon afterwards. 

As soon as his fingertips touched the marks, they began to glow harshly and that was when the stinging began. It felt as if someone was stabbing him with a million thumbtacks, which was not a fun feeling. Yelping, Lance immediately stopped touching his stomach, dulling the sting of the marks. For a second Lance thought he was still asleep because when did freckles stab you? He was pretty sure that was not normal. 

“Paladins! You are needed in the control room, immediately! I repeat, you are needed in the control room immediately!” 

Sparing one last look at the blue marks on his skin, Lance quickly pushed away thoughts on the freckles and focused on the task at hand, getting his paladin gear on in two seconds. After all, it was just a little pain right? And it wasn’t like his hand was going to be on his stomach anyway, so what’s the problem?


It only took a week for the freckles to span across his entire abdomen. Which presented a problem as they team didn’t exactly have time to deal with the marks, especially with the big diplomatic mission they were embarking on soon. Not like the marks cared, they just seemed to cause more trouble. 

Ever since he first noticed them, there’s always been this dull sting in the back of his mind, just barely noticeable but always there. Not only that, Lance seemed to be… freezing things now? Of course he wasn’t turning anything to solid ice but if his hand lingered to long in a certain area, tendrils of frost would begin to dance across the surface (The first time that happened freaked him out just a tad). The freckles also began to glow more often, mostly at random times. He would just be chilling on the couch and BAM, his chest was now a light up display (yet another thing that freaked him out). 

The logical decision would be to tell the team, but how could he? Sure the diplomatic mission was a huge deal, but that wasn’t the only reason Lance wasn’t coming clean about the strange things that were happening. This was his chance to prove his worth to his team, that he was more than just Lance-the-jokester or Lance-the-screwup. That he was worthy of being the Blue Paladin and of Blue herself. 

He could live with a little pain and some weird ice magic if it meant he finally had a thing.  


It took a matter of days before the freckles spread to his arms, stopping a few inches short of his wrists. They were currently on the planet Eyena, a relatively peaceful planet that were known for their mines and the valuable ores within them. Lance couldn’t mess up this meeting, this alliance with a species that could help the team immensely. He wasn’t that selfish. 

It wasn’t like the marks would listen to him though. The pain only worsened and suddenly everything he touched with his hands froze. He was forced to wear gloves constantly to hide the power he now had, the delicate loops of blue that now covered them. The pain was constant and even Blue began to worry at this point. However, Lance put up his brave face and pushed through it all, the pain, the ache, the emptiness…


It felt like only hours before Lance could feel the chill of ice spreading across his body, practically crawling up his throat. There was a ringing in his ears now and he somehow managed to freeze the gloves he wore as well. The only good thing was that the meetings were almost over and soon Lance could be back on the castle, away from prying eyes to finally fix whatever was happening. 

Until then, he nodded along with whatever one of the Eyenians were saying, playing his part as the Blue Paladin and knowing he was slowly, finally becoming worthy of actually being the Blue Paladin. 

How minutes had flown by? Lance couldn’t recall what had happened in the past few moments, as he was now in his room back at the castle. It had only been a few minutes right? Lance could feel his breath quickening as he glanced wildly around, how did he get here in just a few minutes? The room seemed to grow colder with each sharp intake he took, the bed beginning to freeze beneath him. Had it been more than just a few minutes? The ringing was now a roaring storm in his ears. It couldn’t have been than just a few? Lance could feel his hands shaking, the marks glowing a bright blue as the ice spread farther, faster around the room. It had been just a few minutes. Maybe two or three? Lance felt like tearing his hair out, he felt so confused at the moment, so out of place, out of time. 

Was it only seconds now? How many seconds had flown by? He knew his room wasn’t always this cold and shiny, and it certainly hadn’t been a second ago. The marks burned harshly, and was that someone calling his name? It couldn’t have been. Because only a second ago he had been fine, he is fine, is he fine?

Voltron Headcanons 1/?
  • Height headcanons!
    • Pidge: 4'11"
    • Keith: 5'6"
    • Lance: 5'7"
      • Lance holds the fact that he’s taller than Keith over his head constantly (pun intended)
    • Hunk: 5'9"
    • Shiro: 6'0"
    • Coran: 5'11"
    • Allura: 6'2″
  • Lance likes cherry cola 🍒 like hardcore dudes, if he could he would only drink cherry cola (but Hunk doesnt let him and makes him drink water)
  • Hunk is the nosiest friend. Everyone always assumes it’s Pidge, and while she does stick her nose in places it doesnt need to be, Hunk is by far nosier than her
    • he canonly read Pidge’s diary may i remind you
    • he always does it from a place of kindness tho, he want to make sure youre ok, and hey if he messes with you a little in the process, its never with malice
  • Pidge has sensory issues with certain fabrics, they can’t be too thick and rough or too thin and silky. She probably likes the feel of vintage wash jersey best tho.
  • Allura tries to wear human ear muffs for the first time but her ears stick out and she’s like “whats the use in these my ears will still be cold” and Shiro is dying inside bc his gf is too cute
  • Keith is that person at the mall with their friends and he just. Darts away. 
    • He wants to get to the next damn store and the people walking in front of him are too slow. 
    • So he kinda just. Darts forwards and weaves his way through the crowd in gaps that are there for split seconds and just abandons his friends
    • And his friends are just like “Keith don’t do that Keith no” and they have to push and run to catch up before they lose him in the crowd
  • Keith is a stomach sleeper and a restless sleeper
    • He sleeps on his tum with his arms crushed between his torso and bed, and his legs will either be both straight out or one straight out and the other tucked half under his torso 
    • even tho hes a stomach sleeper he’ll still toss and turn during the night, tho he always ends back on his stomach with his arms under him
    • all the tossing and turning messes up his hair
      • esp if he goes to bed with wet hair bc he doesn’t give a fuck and he just showers before bed and doesnt bother to dry it
      • so he wakes up with a big ol birds nest
    • he’s the kind of guy who either wakes up but not really and then spends the next several hours in bed half awake but not really
      or he’ll bolt right up from sleep and say/shout fuck there’s no in between with him 
  • Lance has ADHD and it’ll get to him at the most inopportune moments, like he could probably be in bed with Keith and he’d just. Stop. In the middle of sex to look at memes
    • he didnt mean anything by it Keith its just his brain dont be mad
  • Chopsticks headcanons
    • Shiro = he’s Japanese-American and grew up eating a mix of Japanese and American food, so he’s been using chopsticks his whole life. Chopsticks pro.
    • Keith = was in foster care and didn’t get the chance to use chopsticks until he knew Shiro, who taught him. He was bad at first but he’s had years to practice so it’s natural for him now 
    • Hunk = hes a foodie. He picked it up fast bc he wants to try all the foods and do it right, which means using the proper utensils for Asian foods
    • Pidge = did not learn how to use chopsticks until the gang goes out for Japanese food (probably gyoza since they’re fucking good) but picks it up really fast and is doing ok by the end of the meal. Not great but not awkward 
    • Lance = can’t chopsticks. He ends up stabbing his gyoza on his chopsticks (which is smth considered immature and childish) and Keith laughs at him. Lance whines ofc and Pidge teases bc she picked it up fast. Keith teaches Lance how to use chopsticks later on tho and after a while he’s still awkward about it but is at least not stabbing his gyoza

The Roommate, Pt. 2

(Part 1 HERE)

I’m figuring that I’ll update this thing at least once a day (maybe more if I get some really major ideas that I just gotta put out there) - maybe less if I’m busy. This is my first time writing a fanfic that’s a) longer than like a few pages and b) read by more people than just a few friends and my girlfriend. I’m very new, in that sense, to fanfic/fanfic culture (don’t have an AO3 or anything like that but if I’m satisfied with how this turns out, my gf has offered to let me put it up on hers, which I will take her up on :)) There are some original characters in here, cause it’s a fic where Adam’s at college, but also most of Maggie’s gang, either in person or in passing. Other than that, nothing to add, really, just that I’m really happy about the support this fic has gotten so far :D 

IN WHICH: Adam Avoids Personal Subjects, We Meet A Very Strong Young Woman, and College Students Share Some Existential Confusion

Keep reading

Safe

Part 1 “I missed you”

You were reading when your peace was interrupted by the far sound of people yelling and metal clashing. Looking out the large window of what used to be yours and Loki’s room, you saw Thor zoom pass towards where the dungeons were located.

You kept your mind busy to keep it away from Loki; reading, training, even tending to the gardens. Although, your mind seemed to pick activities that reminded you of him. Reading the books Loki used to recommend to you. Training with the same magic Loki and Frigga had taught you. And the gardens. All you could think of was the night he asked to take your hand in marriage, in the gardens, away from the people drinking and laughing inside.

You walked out of the large doors and into the hallway to see Odin and Frigga with the Midgardian girl who had come a few days prior, Jane, her name was. There were soldiers marching behind Odin while they talked and he soon dismissed both women.

Still very much confused, you speed-walked over to Frigga to hear her whisper to Lady Jane, “You must listen very carefully.” With her to reply with a short, “Yes, ma'am”

“My Queen!” You interrupted their conversation for both of them to turn towards you. “May I ask what the problem is? Why the soldiers?”

She hushed you and pulled you and Lady Jane over behind a pillar to continue whispering, “A mere riot in the dungeons. Nothing to worry about, although, precaution must be taken. Go back to your chambers, child. Lock your doors.” She said it calmly, though you could hear the worry in her voice making you assume it was more than just a mere riot.

She pulled Lady Jane away and looked back at you before you started to walk in the opposite direction, back to where your room was located. Your supposed to be short walk was stopped when you heard a large explosion noise and looked out of a nearby window to see Heimdall on top of the beams of the rainbow bridge and several ships flying passed.

Understanding that it is indeed more than just commotion in the dungeons, you started running back to your room to hear more loud explosions and metal clashing.

Before you got the the hallway where your room was located, you saw Thor come through a window and start to walk up to you.

“Where is Jane?” He seemed rushed which worried you further.

“She is with your mother.” Your brain started to scramble and ask several questions. “What’s going on?

"The dark elves, they’ve come seeking the aethir. I must find Jane.” Thor spoke quickly, turning around to walk in the direction of the main hall. “Let me come with you.” You quickly stepped beside him and he stopped to look at you before trying to push you back towards the rooms.

“It is dangerous, Y/N”

You rolled your eyes and continued to try and pry yourself out of his hold. “Thor, I want to help. I’ll be much safer with you and Frigga than I will be alone.” You reasoned and he let out a huff before turning around to walk quickly.

You both reached the main hall to see that Odin had slain the remaining dark elves that now laid scattered all over the throne room. “Thor, you must find Jane.” His powerful voice caught both yours and Thor’s attention and Thor replied with the same thing you had told him earlier causing more worry to etch onto his face.

You and Thor rushed to where you had seen Frigga walk with Odin following behind. You found a large door and opened it far enough to see a large dark elf plunge a sword through Frigga’s back.

“No!” Lightning struck the elf’s face before him and the other elf jumped off the nearby balcony. You were frozen. You didn’t understand what was happening. The next thing you knew, Odin was hugging Frigga’s limp body and you finally started to notice the tears streaming down yours, Thor’s and Odin’s faces.

————

“Y/N!” Your running didn’t falter even after hearing Thor chasing you. You had to tell him. It had to be you. Who else would be there for him? Who else was going to allow him to let down his guard?

You saw two guards cross their spears before warping straight to the other side of the door. You felt yourself get dizzy but continued to move towards the cells. You started to slow down, thinking about what you would say to him but before you could think of how to explain why everyone’s eyes were blood shot, you saw a guard walk past you from where Loki’s cell was located.

No

You waited for him to pass before hearing a loud crash and you started to run again. And there he was.

His cell was scattered; All his furniture in pieces and books were torn and littering the floor, vases were broken causing pieces of glass to stick out all around, probably what caused him to clutch onto his foot where blood was slowly gushing out of. You wanted to hold him, to tell him it was okay. You needed to.

You turned the corner to see the guard who was waiting by his cell door. He stood up when he saw you but you interrupted him, “Let me in.” You said it demandingly. Almost threateningly, which is probably what caused him to raise defense and open his mouth to protest but you had cut him off again.

Please.” You had said softer, holding back the tears that had piled up behind your lids.

He sighed and called two other guards for precaution before allowing you inside. Immediately, Loki jerked his head towards you and your tears slowly fell upon seeing his own.

“What do you want?!” He half-spat, half-sobbed, still on one knee and clutching his foot. His brows were knitted together but also trying their best not to fall and slope sadly. “Tell me how beautiful and at peace she looked? When there is nothing beautiful about being stabbed?” He spoke harshly before looking away and sobbing.

You felt terrible. You knew how much she meant to him, you knew about their last encounter and you knew that he blames every cell in his body for what had happened. And although it seemed like he loathed you right now, you still loved him with your every being, so you walked closer to him and wrapped your arms around his crouching frame, sobbing just as much.

He put his free arm around the arm that came in front of his chest and leaned into you before breaking down blubbering multiple apologies for Gods know what.

I’m sorry.” He sobbed again before nuzzling his face into your body and sobbing some more.

“It’s okay, we’re okay. There’s nothing to apologize for, my love.” You stroked his hair and looked up to keep more tears from falling, trying to be the strong one. His breath steadied a bit before he leaned back to look at your nose, seemingly unable to look at your eyes.

“I have everything to apologize for.” He paused before closing his eyes tightly, a few tears escaping, and then looking back up at you. “I’m sorry I wasn’t there for her… or you. I’m sorry I didn’t love either of you properly. I’m sorry.” He choked out a sob on the last word before hugging you again.

“There is no need to be sorry, Loki.” You closed your eyes too and kissed the top of his head, trying to calm his breathing again. “You were locked up, but you were always there” You pulled his face up before kissing him sweetly on his lips. “And as long as she and I were in your heart, then who’s to say your love was not proper?”

He opened his eyes and looked at you finally before kissing you again. It was slow but only because he was scared of losing you too, just as much as you were scared of losing him. You both held each other in your arms, never wanting to leave, because you know that’s where you don’t need to think about anything else. It’s a place where you’re both wanted and loved, safe.

Tumblr Themes & React and Redux: Part 1 - Setup and the Initial State

As a platform that prides itself on being a home for artists and creatives alike, it only makes sense that we allow our users to fully customize their Tumblrs to fully express themselves. Here at Tumblr, the world is your oyster not only in terms of looks but also in how you create your theme. I wanted to demonstrate how you too can develop a theme using Redux and React. Since there are plenty of docs and tutorials on how to use those libraries themselves, I will briefly describe how I got the libraries to work with the Tumblr theme engine, and share some handy tips that made developing more efficient and more enjoyable.

If you follow the ever changing landscape of JavaScript, then you’ve at least heard of these two libraries. Prior to building the Post-It-Forward theme, I only knew of them by name but never got the chance to actually use them. Developers couldn’t get enough of how React made it easy to create and reuse components. Many also praise how elegantly React manages and renders views, especially when paired with Redux for state management. All of this sounded great. I wanted to turn this project into a learning experience. I thought, “why not?” and gave it a shot.

An Extremely Brief Introduction to Tumblr Themes

The way themes work on Tumblr is that we have a theme engine that provides special types of operators. These operators insert dynamic data, such as your Tumblr’s title or description, or are blocks that serve as conditionals for rendering a block of HTML, like the “Next Page” link.

My HTML started off a little something like this:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <head>
    <title>{Title}</title>
        <style></style>
    </head>
    <body>
        <div id="post-it-forward-root"></div>
    </body>
</html>

As you can see, {Title} is a variable that will return the title of the Tumblr. The point of entry for this theme is the <div> element with the #post-it-forward-root ID. In your index.js file you’ll reference this DOM element in your ReactDom.render() method. If you want to learn more about the theme engine, head over to our Theme Docs

Creating the Initial State

To get things started, we need to create an initial state. How do we introduce this initial state if we have to rely on the theme engine to give us all our data? How do we get the data from HTML land to JS land? Well, here’s one way of doing it:

<script type="text/javascript">
    (function(root) {
        var ensureString = function(str) {
            return !str ? '' : str;
        };

        var basicVariables = {
            title: ensureString({JSTitle}),
            name: ensureString({JSName}),
                        description: ensureString({JSDescription}),
                        metaDescription: ensureString({JSMetaDescription}),
                        blogUrl: ensureString({JSBlogURL}),
                        rss: ensureString({JSRSS}),
            favicon: ensureString({JSFavicon}),
            customCss: ensureString({JSCustomCSS}),
            isPermalinkPage: !!ensureString(/*{block:PermalinkPage}*/true/*{/block:PermalinkPage}*/),
            isIndexPage: !!ensureString(/*{block:IndexPage}*/true/*{/block:IndexPage}*/),
            /*{block:PostTitle}*/
            postTitle: ensureString({JSPostTitle}),
            /*{/block:PostTitle}*/
            /*{block:PostSummary}*/
            postSummary: ensureString({JSPostSummary}),
            /*{/block:PostSummary}*/
            portraitUrl16: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-16}),
            portraitUrl24: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-24}),
            portraitUrl30: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-30}),
            portraitUrl40: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-40}),
            portraitUrl48: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-48}),
            portraitUrl64: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-64}),
            portraitUrl96: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-96}),
            portraitUrl128: ensureString({JSPortraitURL-128}),
            copyrightYears: ensureString({JSCopyrightYears}),
            isSearchPage: !!ensureString(/*{block:SearchPage}*/true/*{/block:SearchPage}*/),
            searchQuery: ensureString({JSSearchQuery}),
            safeSearchQuery: ensureString({JSURLSafeSearchQuery}),
            searchPlaceHolder: ensureString('{lang:Search Blog}'),
            noSearchResults: !!ensureString(/*{block:NoSearchResults}*/true/*{/block:NoSearchResults}*/),
        };

        root.tumblrData = {
            basicVariables: basicVariables,
            };
    })(this);
</script>

This creates a tumblrData attribute on the browser’s window object.

Sometimes the theme engine returns nothing for a particular variable if it’s not available. For example, if I made a post that does not have a title, the final root.tumblrData object will not have postTitle as a key. Sometimes the key will be available but the theme engine returned an empty value for it. For those cases, I created a helper method called ensureString() that turns those empty values into empty strings. Sometimes you might need a boolean value. In those cases, I’ll enter the conditional variables from the theme engine into the helper method to get the boolean value from it.

Once you’ve set up your initial state make sure that you place this script tag before the script tag that references the rest of your code that should be compiled and minified and uploaded through the asset uploader that the Tumblr text editor provides. This ensures that the tumblrData is accessible through the window object by the time the React app gets initiated.

tumblrData should look something like this:

const tumblrData = {
    basicVariables: {
        blogUrl: "https://mentalhealthquilt.tumblr.com/",
        copyrightYears: "2016–2017",
        customCss: "",
                description: "Mental Health Quilt",
        favicon: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_128.png",
        isIndexPage: true,
        isPermalinkPage: false,
        isSearchPage: false,
        metaDescription: "Mental Health Quilt",
        name: "mentalhealthquilt",
        noSearchResults: false,
        portraitUrl16: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_16.png",
        portraitUrl24: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_24.png",
        portraitUrl30: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_30.png",
        portraitUrl40: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_40.png",
        portraitUrl48: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_48.png",
        portraitUrl64: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_64.png",
        portraitUrl96: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_96.png",
        portraitUrl128: "https://68.media.tumblr.com/avatar_c402eedfb9d5_128.png",
        rss: "https://mentalhealthquilt.tumblr.com/rss",
        safeSearchQuery: "",
        searchPlaceHolder: "Search mentalhealthquilt",
        searchQuery: "",
        title: "Mental Health Quilt",
    },
}

Now we have the data that the theme engine gave us in a format that React and Redux can work with.

If you are new to these libraries, I highly recommend following the simple Todo App Tutorial that is on the Redux website. They do a wonderful job of explaining the process as you build the app.

Helpful Tips

Setting up a local server will make developing way faster than the current setup. If you’re using both the “webpack” and “webpack-dev-server” packages, in your package.json file under scripts you can place something like this in it:

In your package.json file

...
"scripts": {
    "local-server": "NODE_ENV=development webpack-dev-server --config path/to/webpack.config.js --port=3000 --inline --hot"
},
...

To run that script, in the terminal you will type this command:

> npm run local-server

In the Tumblr editor, be sure to replace your script tags referencing these external files like so:

<!DOCTYPE html>
        <head>
                <title>{Title}</title>
                <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://localhost:3000/path/to/prod/index.css">
        </head>
        <body>
                <div id="post-it-forward-root"></div>
                <script type="text/javascript">
                        // where the tumblrData gets created
                </script>
                <script src="http://localhost:3000/path/to/prod/index.js"></script>
        </body>
</html>

Once you run that script, it’ll enable live reload so that every time you save a .js_.css_.scss/etc. file, it’ll rebuild the assets and refresh your Tumblr blog for you. This is way faster than having to re-upload your assets every time you make a change, no matter how small. Just remember to return your script and style references to the uploaded assets when you’re done working. Localhost is only for development.

You could also add the Redux logger middleware to your project during development so that you can view how the state changes as you fire off different actions. For more information on how to set this up, the Redux Logger Github is a great resource.

Summary

Building a Tumblr theme using Redux and React is possible! Not only is there a workflow that makes development much faster, but it’s also a great way to flex your web development muscles. You can add more to the user experience of your Tumblr now that you have the world of JavaScript at your fingertips. Go forth and make some awesome themes!

Vain (Part 2) - Jughead Jones

Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3

Summary: After an awkward encounter with Jughead Jones, you’ve been avoiding the anti-social teen. However, in the most cliche way possible, you end up paired together in a group project making avoidance harder than it first seemed.

I’m pretty new to writing on tumblr, so the response Vain got was overwhelming! Pretty sure that if I didn’t make a part 2, someone was going to skin me alive, (i got a LOT of asks for it, which I think is awesome!) It’s probably going to turn into a full on series so yay hype.

Warnings: - A lot of Shakespeare stuff which I try to explain :3

“Thank you so much for meeting with me Professor,” you said gratefully to none other than Charles Xavier.

The past half hour of your life had been filled with more concern and acceptance than you could’ve hoped for, and you were ecstatic to be accept into Charles’s school.

You sat in his office, your hands clasped together tightly in your lap, but your shoulder’s didn’t hold their tense stature anymore. You felt comfortable here, and you felt like the Professor would get you the help you needed. Charles had been nothing but kind to you, he listened to your stories thoughtfully, asked intuitive questions without stepping over his boundaries, and offered to show you around his school. The school you would hopefully become a part of shortly. 

“Of course (Y/N), mind if I ask you one more question?” Charles asked, folding his hands together. 

You nodded your head eagerly, the past week of your life had been a living hell. It wasn’t everyday that you discovered you had an extremely powerful and hard to control mutation. 

“Can you show me what you are capable of?” he asked cautiously.

You glanced down at your hands, feeling the energy between the two slowly pulsate. You didn’t dare move your hands, you didn’t want to torch this school.You looked up at the professor.

“Not here,” you said simply.

The thoughts of your hands unleashing red energy beams into your bedroom wall danced around your head. You didn’t want to repeat the event, especially now that you knew you could contain the energy at the source of which it came from. The problem was, once you moved your hands, the energy would erupt.

Charles gave you an understanding nod, “You know (Y/N), I think there are two people here you would get along with very well.”

You raised an eyebrow at his claim, but didn’t ask anything. He knew best after all. The professor glanced at the door, and you assumed he was going to say it was about time to head out, but a knock sounded on it instead. It looked as though Charles… smirked? 

“Come in,” Charles’ voice rang out through the small room, and you watched eagerly as the golden door handle turned. 

The guy that walked through the door made your heart flutter in your chest. You couldn’t decide what to focus on, his baby blue eyes, the way his navy blue hoodie clung to his muscular frame, his defined jawline, or how the light made his shaggy blonde hair shine. You watched as his eyes flicked around the vintage room quickly, his attention first on Charles, and then shifting to you. You noticed the corner of his mouth flick upwards.

“You needed me?” he asked, keeping his eyes on you for a moment, before looking at Charles.

“Yes, thank you for coming Alex. This is (Y/N),” Charles said, gesturing to you in your chair. “(Y/N) this is Alex.”

Alex nodded at you, a small smirk on his lips making you blush a bright shade of red, you averted your gaze.

“I was wondering if you could show (Y/N) around, she has a mutation very similar to yours,” Charles suggested, gesturing from one of you to the other.

“Sure,” Alex said simply with a shrug, he definitely gave off the “I don’t care do whatever” vibe.

“Thank you,” you said to the two, looking back in forth between them, and standing up from your seat.

“I’ll see you shortly,” Charles said, opening one of his filing cabinets next to his desk and pulling out packets of paper.

With your hands still held together tightly you moved towards Alex, ready to follow him out of the office. As Alex reached for the door a sudden thud sounded on the other side of it, and you jumped a little. Before the three of you really had time to respond the door burst open, and a brunette with red sunglasses came charging in. 

“Professor it’s Jean,” was all he said as he raced towards Charles’s desk, not paying any attention to you or Alex, and in the process pushing against you unintentionally.

You let out a gasp as your balance was disrupted, on reflex you threw your hands behind you to keep you from falling over. You felt the hot energy erupt from your palms, searing the wall behind you and catching you completely off guard. You quickly removed your hands, closing your palms tightly and throwing them together. As a result you no longer had anything supporting you, and you began to fall backwards, that was, until you felt a strong pair of hands grip your waist, holding you upright.

“You’re alright,” Alex said beside you, it was then that you realized it was his hands holding you upright.

“Th-thanks,” you stuttered. 

Alex had quickly turned his attention to the boy who had stormed into the room. 

“Watch it Scott,” he said simply before pulling you out of the room, before the professor, or anyone had time to say anything.

Alex let go of you, but you followed him down one of the wide hallways in the school. They were packed full of students, most of which were younger than you and Alex, but they moved around the two of you as you walked, Alex in particular. You noticed the looks people gave you as you walked by, but you didn’t really care, you just felt terrible. 

After you rounded a couple of corner’s with Alex you descended down a stair case and the flow of students gradually stopped. 

“I know what you’re thinking,” Alex said in front of you as you walked. “That you need to apologize and that you’re probably not going to be accepted here, but that’s not true trust me.”

“How did you know?” you asked cautiously.

“Believe it or not, I had those thoughts once too,” as Alex spoke your eyes widened. “I’m going to show you where I learned to control my power’s.”

“Thank you.”

Shortly Alex led you to a pair of large metal door, all of the activity abuzz in the school was no longer audible. 

“Is this a bunker?” you questioned as Alex pulled the doors open. 

“Yep,” Alex responded, holding the door open and gesturing for you to go in. 

You shuffled into the bunker cautiously. It was the real deal, enforced metal ran all along the walls, and it smelt of… charred rubber? You heard the large doors behind you close, a loud metal thud echoing off of the metal walls of the bunker. You looked back to Alex, who walked directly past you and towards the end of the large bunker. You followed him, not sure what he was doing, but too afraid to ask. 

As you walked closer to the end you noticed a singular large wooden box, it laid on the ground, but was wider than you were tall. The two of you quickly reached the box, and Alex grabbed the lid, opening it swiftly, a large creek sounding as he did so. 

“Just what we need,” he muttered, pulling out a fire extinguisher and placing it on the ground. 

He then proceeded to grab two dummies out of the box, neither of which had filled in features, but were simply white and about average size. He held one in each arm, walking with back to the direction from which you came. You wish’d that you could help him, but you couldn’t exactly use your hands.

Following Alex, you watched as he placed the two mannequins a couple of yards from each other. He gestured down to by where the large metal doors were.

“Go stand down there, I’m going to teach you like I was taught,” he said before walking in the other direction and grabbing the fire extinguisher. 

You did as Alex said, standing even with the metal doors, a good distance from the targets. As Alex walked towards you, his gaze seemed almost hungry. You stared down at your feet for a moment, before looking back up to him, a small smirk never leaving his face. Alex soon stood next to you, placing the fire extinguisher on the ground by the sides of you. 

“Alright, I want you to hit the dummies,” he said, folding his arms and looking at you impatiently. 

“Alex I can’t control it-” you began.

“You’ve gotta start somewhere,” Alex replied sternly.

Your heart began to beat fast in your chest, you hadn’t asked Alex to help you, but you were happy he was. You slowly turned towards the targets, hoping Alex wouldn’t notice the slight shaking of your body. Letting out a shaky breath, you raised your hands, and quickly, before thinking about it, you unclasped them, raising one hand towards different targets. In mere seconds, the red beams erupted from your palms, searing the targets. The energy erupted from your hands was almost exhilarating, you finally let go. It wasn’t until flames started to dance on your targets that you hurriedly clasped your hands together. 

Alex quickly rushed down to the targets with the fire extinguisher, quickly destroying the flames. You hurried after him, wishing you could help. After finishing the job, Alex looked to you, a wide smile on his face.

“You did it.”

“Yeah I… I guess I did,” you said, letting your feat sink in before a large smile appeared on your face.

Alex glanced down to your hands, then back up into your eyes, “So your hands absorb energy right?”

You nodded, “That’s how I can contain the beams.”

Alex studied you for a moment, “Mine do the same thing, mind if I try something?”

“Try what?” you questioned him.

Without saying anything, Alex outstretched his palms towards you. You didn’t have to talk to him to know what he wanted you to do.

“Alex I can’t,” you said, glancing down at your hands. “I could hurt you.”

“I’ll just absorb it, don’t worry,” Alex waited for you.

Breathing in deeply, you quickly unclasped your hands and brought them to his, quick enough that your energy beams couldn’t touch anything else. For the first time you didn’t feel the energy start to build up in your hands. You gasped. 

Alex smiled down at you, folding his fingers over your hands, “I can’t absorb energy (Y/N).”

Your eyes widened, but you folded your fingers over his as well. 

“I could’ve seriously hurt you,” you said.

“But you didn’t. Did you?” Alex taunted, never breaking eye contact with you. “It’s like a switch for me, I can control when the energy comes out. I think that it’s the same for you, you’ve just been too fixated on stopping it to notice.”

Alex slowly began to let go of your hands, you couldn’t help but hold onto him tighter, the fear of hurting him or yourself arising in you.

“Don’t think about it,” Alex said, and this time you let him pull his hands away from yours. 

You stared down at your own hands in awe. The red beams didn’t emerge like you expected. You looked up at Alex, pure adoration all over your features. 

“Thank you so much,” you said to him.

“Don’t mention it,” he shrugged. “Next time, I’ll show you what I can do,” Alex winked at you and color rose to your cheeks once again. 

You had a feeling you were going to fit in just fine.
