hellboy and liz

Imagine monster-human couples starting families together. 

Imagine big intimidating monsters crying when they learn that they’re going to be parents. 

Imagine them marking the outside of their human mate’s home with their claws, leaving deep scratches against brick and mortar or hoarding branches and leaves to build a nest out of. 

Imagine them lulling their unborn to sleep with gentle clicks, growls and the songs of their ancient races, songs that no human alive has ever heard before.

Imagine them finally holding their hybrid newborns for the first time, clutching them in their huge terrible claws as if they would never let go. They could easily rip them apart, but to their little ones, their touches are all but brief brushes of silk to their tiny, new bodies. Imagine them protecting both their offspring and their mates as fiercely and as lovingly as they have never done before, desperate not to lose the new loves they have in their lives after years hiding away in the shadows. 

Imagine both human and monster being more complete than either of them have in their lives, finally together, finally a family.  A weird little family, but a happy little family nonetheless.

March 22

Abe Sapien began his life as Langdon Everett Caul, a Victorian scientist and businessman who became involved with the Oannes Society, an occult organization who believed in life and all knowledge having come from the sea. After retrieving a strange jellyfish-like deity from an underwater ruin, Caul and the other members performed an arcane ritual that inadvertently ended with the creature’s release and Caul being turned into an ichthyo sapien. Believing him to be Oannes reborn, the society sealed the developing icthyo sapien’s body in a tube of water in the hidden laboratory beneath a Washington, D.C.. hospital until such time as he was fully formed. Forced to abandon the site by the outbreak of the American Civil War, the Society never found occasion to return for Caul, and there he stayed until he was found by workmen in November 1978. With no memory of his life before, the icthyo sapien received a new name. Abe Sapien was taken to the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD) for a gruelling round of research by curious BPRD scientists, and was saved from vivisection by an empathetic Hellboy. Thereafter, Abe entered the ranks of the BPRD as a valued field agent. He first appeared in Hellboy: Seeds of Destruction (March 22, 1994).

so i was watching Hellboy II the other day and remembered how pissed i was that we never got to see Hellboy and Liz’s twins. and then i got to thinking.. what if Darcy was a twin..? o.O (in case you haven’t noticed, i love d. lewis and will cross her with every fandom i like).

so when Darcy gets overly emotional, her skin tints red and her entire body erupts in flames. or something. 

her brother can solely take after their father, complete with red skin, shaved down horns and tail which is why Darcy never mentioned him because he was terrified of what people would say since they didn’t take too kindly to his dad even when he was saving people.

enter Darcy wrapping the Avengers around her fingers and Darcy bringing her family around when she realizes that no one bats at eye at other people being different.
