So here’s an email I just sent to Marvel, in case you’re interested

To the editors of Marvel Comics:

Many of the letters in your letters pages begin with the writer’s long history of reading comics as evidence that you should care about their opinion and want to keep them as a customer. While I may be relatively new to comics, I think I’m a pretty desirable customer. Not only do I have disposable income and a willingness to spend money on physical books in a brick-and-mortar comic shop, but I’m also a teacher and librarian with the power to get your books in the hands of the next generation.

Until recently, I was thrilled to do just that. I teach at a school that serves a very diverse population and I wanted to expose my students to heroes who look like them. I bought them Miles Morales, Sam Wilson, Ms. Marvel, Silk, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, various team books, and more. I did this not with the school’s budget, but with my own money (and I of course took the opportunity to read them myself first).

For myself (although I also share most of them with students), I have every issue of Patsy Walker, A.K.A. Hellcat!, The Mighty Thor, Mockingbird, Storm, and most of the recent Black Widow and Captain Marvel runs. I’ve been eagerly awaiting Nick Fury and America, and was not disappointed by their #1s. I’ve loved so much of what Marvel has given me over the past few years; I got to see parts of myself and the people I love in these books, parts that I don’t always get to see in popular media.

But none of the above were the characters that got me into comics; that honor belongs to Steve Rogers. I fell in love with him in the movies, with his steadfastness and his sense of justice and his belief in doing the right thing and protecting individuals. I went back and read Brubaker’s Winter Soldier arc, but was too intimidated by the vastness of the Marvel universe to read many of the books he was currently appearing in when I first started reading comics.

And then I found out he was being restored to his young self and getting a new series. I was ECSTATIC. I couldn’t wait to get it and see what new adventures this amazing character would go on. When I found out about the twist at the end of #1, I was upset, but everyone assured me that this is comics - it’ll be mind control or a decoy or some other trick. Soon everything would be back to normal. But as I realized how committed everyone at Marvel was to the reality of Steve-the-Hydra-Agent, I also realized that this was a book that didn’t want me as a reader. This version of Steve Rogers seemed to have nothing in common with the Steve Rogers I had fallen in love with. As a queer woman with Jewish ancestry, I felt like my concerns were dismissed and that I was unwelcome. 

So I didn’t buy the book. I kept my other subscriptions and continued to enjoy them, all the while waiting for the trick-behind-the-trick that everyone else seemed sure would come. And then Secret Empire began.
I don’t know if I can put into words how it felt to find out that according to this new story, Steve Rogers has never been a hero at all. The closest I can get is that it was a punch in the gut, although I feel the cliche fails to accurately convey the strength of my response.

Stories matter. Heroes matter. And in a world that feels full of pain and fear and darkness, stories and heroes matter even more. The people I love are living with a lot of fear right now - fear of deportation, fear of losing access to health care, fear of being attacked for who they love or the color of their skin - and so am I. We need heroes who can remind us of why we fight, why we resist, why we rise above, why we plant ourselves like a tree and say “no, you move.”

Steve Rogers used to be that hero for me and for many others. To take a hero like Steve Rogers and destroy everything that made him who he was, everything that he was created to be…I don’t know why that is a story that Marvel wants to tell right now. Or ever. It is incomprehensible to me.

And it leaves me torn. I have asked my shop to not pull any books related to Secret Empire for me, and a part of me wants to firmly declare that Marvel will never see another cent of my money at all. The other part of me remembers how much I have loved and appreciated my other experiences as a Marvel fan, the encouragement that your characters and stories have given me, the ways they’ve made me laugh and given me something to look forward to, a bright spot in the middle of the week.

I don’t know if I will keep buying Marvel comics. I want to, but I’m not sure you want me to. Right now, it seems like I’m the type of customer that you don’t want at all - the customer who values the diversity you’ve blamed for the sales slump and who wants her good guys to be good, even when it’s hard.

Hoping to remain a fan,
Rachel A. 

I don’t post a lot on social media these days and I rarely if ever post anything personal. But I have two personal stories that I’ve never really told publicly that I feel I need to tell today.

About seven years ago there was a letter in my mailbox from the White House. To be clear, not just the White House, but from the newly elected President Of The United States. Wow, maybe this had something to do with his appearance in an issue of Amazing Spider-Man, but oddly enough it was addressed to my then 8 year old daughter. It seems that unbeknownst to her parents, my little girl mailed a letter to President Obama wishing him well and offering him advice as only an 8 year old could.

And he wrote back.

In the letter he thanked and commending her for passing along her thoughts and engaging in this wonderful thing we call Democracy. To this day I still tear up remembering the look on her face as she read that letter realizing that not only did the President Of The United States write back, but that she lived in a country in which this was possible.

Two years later I was sitting in my office at Marvel when my phone rings and a gentlemen claiming to be an assistant to the President Of The United States tells me that the POTUS would like to commission me to do a piece of art for him. Thinking it was a prank I told him I’d love to discuss it further but I was rushing off to a meeting and would gladly call him back. I took down his info, did a quick Google search and confirmed that the number on my caller I.D. was indeed coming from an office in the White House. Wait, what?!?

As it turned out a close friend of the President, Patrick Gaspard, who was the Director of the White House Office of Political Affairs, was leaving to take on his new role as the Director of the Democratic National Committee. Mr. Gaspard happened to be a HUGE Marvel Comics fan. We’re talking a full on True Believer since childhood, and President Obama thought that a perfect parting gift for his service to the administration would be a custom piece of art featuring Mr. Gaspard, himself and several Marvel heroes standing in front of the White House and for some godforsaken reason he was asking me to draw it. I of course had to get approval from the highest levels of Marvel where it was met with nothing but enthusiasm and a big thumbs up.

Now as unlikely as all of this sounds, nothing was more surreal than when I was sending off rough sketches to White House for the President’s approval and getting back notes. I’d never been more thrilled to get art revisions in my life! Once the piece was finished inked and colored by Danny Miki and Richard Isanove respectfully, I received word that the President was thrilled with the results and Mr. Gaspard was over the moon with the final framed surprise gift.

Admittedly, for those close to me that knew about the assignment, I’d make it a point to boast as often as I could that I was now officially the very first United States Sequential Artist Laureate. Quite frankly, I don’t see why that shouldn’t be a thing.

A short time later I was at San Diego Comicon signing books at the Marvel booth when someone extended a hand for me to shake. I looked up and the gentlemen said, “Do you recognize me?” How could I not, I had spent a week drawing him. It was of course Mr. Gaspard and he wanted to thank me personally for the art and to express how much Marvel had meant to him growing up and still means to him today. Patrick and I have kept in touch ever since and while his current tenure as Ambassador to South Africa is coming to an end, I’m looking forward to catching up with him when he’s back in the States and making good on my promise to bring him on to the set of Defenders or taking him to a Mets game.

And yes, I was lucky enough to meet President Obama. like I said, I don’t usually like to post things of a personal nature, but today I feel compelled to simply convey my own humble experience of having the great honor of meeting the most powerful man on the planet when he was in office. A man who was nothing but kind, appreciative and generous to me, who demonstrating a genuine love for the medium of comics and took more time than he ever needed to to express his appreciation for the work I created and the medium of comics itself. The same man who also took time to write a simple yet eloquent response in 2009 to a little girl who express love and hope, not for herself, but for her President and his future.

Godspeed President Obama, thank you for your service. I have no doubt and look forward to how you will continue to serve and change our world for the better.

Heroes are being called to fight in Donald Trump Conquers Marvel Universe…I mean Secret Empire #0

Okay, the good stuff is that there is some Riri in this issue, working with Tony A.I to fix Carol’s Shield. And America is present among team Carol gathered for space fight. And…I don’t know, @illuminatingcomics will love the page where Director of S.H.I.E.L.D.  Steve Bannon…I mean Steve Rogers, roasts Carol, I guess?

Now, the bad part.

This book literally starts with the revelation that Nazis won the WWII and Allies used Cosmic Cube to rewrite the reality so that they would win. Not joking, they outright go and say that. Marvel is so stupid they made their book say Hitler was supposed to win and the world as we know is a lie. I don’t know if this is just ignorance over how this will be read, actually believing that shit or Marvel really wants Alt-Right money, but it’s disgusting. Fuck this book. Don’t buy it, don’t support it, if you have to read it, pirate. Fuck this Nazi shit.

Written Secrets

A/N: Hi, my birthday is the 1st and that is very close and I’m excited. thank you. 

Summary: Bucky had naughty dreams about reader and he writes them down. Big mistake Buckaroo. Totally inspired by @bucky-sempai ‘s anon ask. 

Bucky had his secrets, quite a few of them actually. And that was common knowledge to anyone who knew him. What they didn’t know was when Steve brought him and his little journals to the compound, the things he wrote to the journal changed drastically. For Bucky’s defence, he did have different journals for different things he had remembered; he had a journal for memories he had stumbled upon and a journals for the dreams he had. After living in the compound a for a long time and developing a good friendship with Agent Y/N, Bucky found himself writing down his fantasies about her. It was like his safe place, a safe place he could write down inappropriate things in peace.

Have I ever mentioned to any young aspiring artists out there, or even established illustrators who want to learn a bit more, that Understanding Comics by Scott McCloud is the greatest textbook on narrative illustration ever to have existed and you can throw away all your awkward manga books and ugly marvel how-tos because this thing has got it all. 

I may or may not be re-reading it for the third time in 10 years and its still as perfect now as when I picked it up age 15. 

Have some SOLID WISDOM ON STYLISATION:

I’m so glad that Taika Waititi decided to go with a neon vaporwave vibe for thor: ragnarok because I can’t sit through one more marvel movie that looks like a nickelback video tbh

fireandchaosgoddess  asked:

Dude, if you wrote X-MEN, that would not only kick ass, but I'd start reading them again (my collection spans the '70s and '80s, got them from my stepdad as a present). Would it be an actual book or would you keep it a comic? Because if it was a book, I'd happily shove a copy into my stepdad's hands and tell him: "YOU NEED TO READ THIS NOW, DROP EVERYTHING!" Well, I'd be tell him that anyway since he loves your books as Mira Grant, but I'm curious.

I want to write the comic.

I want Marvel to let me write the comic.

I want Marvel to trust me to do right by the comic.

I want to write the X-Men.

anonymous asked:

Dear Mr Badge, could you please help me to comprehend the situation re Captain Hy...America comics. How its Marvel tied with Disney? Coz I am mainstream watcher (comic books are not my thing and I am mostly here for MCU CA fandom) and now there are Guardians of Galaxy 2, I want to watch them, but dont want to give my money to someone who shits on other people legacies and history. Go to the cinema? Or boycott it?

Disney owns Marvel, and most of the Marvel film properties, although not all of them, because a guy named Chip sold a bunch of them off in the 90s. They’ve slowly been working on reacquiring them. This is why Spider-man belonged to Sony for a while, and why there are two film versions of Pietro. 

Marvel is basically split into several areas – I don’t know the exact legal structure, but Marvel Studios produces the Marvel films, and that is theoretically separate from Marvel Comics, which these days mostly produces white supremacists. 

Often Marvel Comics will do tie ins or adjust their storylines to bring them closer into the Marvel Cinematic Universe alignment (like introducing Phil Coulson as a comics character; he originated in the films), but not always. So when you give money to GOTG2, you are not giving money to anyone affiliated with Marvel Comics – except for the people who own both companies and are allowing the mess over at Comics to continue. 

Both are owned by Disney. And if Disney were to see a significant drop in its movie revenue because some asshole at Marvel Comics is courting Nazis, then yes, probably they would shit a brick. I don’t think that’s realistically going to happen, so for your own sanity it may be both more fun and more productive to enjoy the movie and then afterward send a letter to Disney about Captain Nazi and his Nazi Nazis. 

But I don’t know what the best strategy is for you – only you can decide that, based on your understanding of the structure of this company and your goals. I think it’s laudable that you’re thinking about it, whatever conclusion you come to. 

spectralspices  asked:

So. Secret Empire. I read it and it's just a sickening mess. Everything happening is just in service of making the Big Event Happen (like civil war 2, bluh) and the only reason I'm really excited for this is so that we can just purge nazi-cap from our collective consciousness once this is over. I don't even have a question! I'm just venting about this shitty event! Fuck nick spencer, that guy is a moron with no respect for where cap CAME from. "Oh he was a nazi the whole time" eat SHIT SPENCER

poorsimon said:Do you think there is a slight possibility that we’ll get a fantastic four book in 2017 to celebrate jack kirbys centenary? Marvel is a hot mess right now with that boring fascist captain America and every series that I was enjoying is either ending in the next couple of months or crossover events are ruining them, looks like marvel is in the same place dc was during the new 52 era

Anonymous said:Thoughts on Dark Matter/Generations/Secret Empire? Specifically for secret Empire, Cap is on of my favorite heroes and I feel like this fundamentally breaks him in a really shitty way. Not to say we won’t get good stories with him in the future, but it’s sort of like Dr. Light where every time he shows up you can’t help but think of identity crisis.

There’s been a bit of a theme to my asks the last couple days.

So yeah. Spoilers ahead, obviously: in the midst of an all-out assault on the nation and world, just as it seemed everyone would make it through like always to see another day, America was betrayed by its systems and subverted from within, culminating in an overt fascist seizing of the White House. Don’t worry though, this week Marvel’s saying it isn’t political.

The cake-topper being that as it turns out via flashback, Nazi Cap (and in response to the inevitable um, actually’s: Hydra’s seminal story under Steranko showed their leader as a character created by Stan and Jack as a Nazi, pretty much all explicit Hydra-isn’t-Nazis material are retcons by Spencer for this arc, “Hail Hydra” is an obvious analogue for another fascist chant, the ‘real Hydra’ inner circle includes Nazis and Neo-Nazis, and this Cap’s vision for America includes white children hunting black children in the street. He’s a fuckin’ Nazi) isn’t a construct of the cosmic cube, but in fact the real Steve Rogers: the Axis won World War II, but the Allies used a cosmic cube to create a fake history where Rogers was on their side and they won the war - gotta ask why they didn’t deal with the Holocaust too - with the real guy now reactivated and fulfilling his true mission. Obviously, this not only delegitimizes every story of a character created by a pair of Jewish-Americans specifically to punch Hitler right in the fucking face, but does it by stating that in the natural course of things, the Master Race of course overtakes the Earth with their sheer superiority, with the very concept of the people they would annihilate having a chance at hope or justice or freedom being a lie currently in the process of getting torn down.

This is a little bit touchy.

There’s obvious franchising reasons for this: Chris Evans has made clear he isn’t sticking around for long if at all after Avengers 4, while as of that movie Anthony Mackie will still have at least 3 films in his contract, so it’s in their interests to set Sam Wilson up in the comics as Captain America to match. Problem is, they started the process before a movie about Steve Rogers, so they had to bring him back, and now have to figure out a way to get him out of the picture for a longer period than simply old age or death. And if you want to get him out of the running for the title of One True Captain America, not only making him a Nazi, and retroactively always a Nazi at that, but classifying literally every non-Nazi Captain America story essentially in-universe fanfic? That’ll get him off the board for awhile. It’s ruinously terrible, but also quick and easy, same as it was quick and easy to move Captain Marvel and once upon a time Iron Man into the spotlight in time for their movies by making them fascists. You’ll have to ask Marvel why fascism is their go-to shocking character twist, though.

I think the source point of the issues here stems from something simple I mentioned recently: I don’t think either of the Big Two necessarily believe there’s going to be a comic book industry in 20 years, or even necessarily 10, so there’s no real reason to attempt anything other than drawing as much blood from the stone as they possibly can. Clearly the creators are trying their best, middle-management I’m sure have long-term plans, and I doubt the powers-that-be want it to fail. But sales have been dropping for years, and neither of them have demonstrated any plan of substance whatsoever to reverse that trend. They both had their moments of attempting to right the ship, and both fell through – the original Marvel NOW! and its immediate follow-ups were major successes, but half their biggest writers left in the wake of Secret Wars and so they reverted to type with endless editorial interference and bullshit crossovers, while DC’s attempt at innovation with DCYou was scattershot at best, clearly born less of a philosophy of “let’s let our best talents try bold new things!” nearly so much as “let’s do weird new things that might grab headlines”. 

Viewed in that light, many of their recent decisions start to make sense; after the New 52 trying to draw in 90s fanboys and maybe a couple teenagers fell through, DC’s explicitly banking on rolling back the clock and appealing to the core fanbase with Rebirth while simultaneously betting everything on the shock value of incorporating Watchmen, while Marvel has fallen back on its regular event-and-relaunch tactics, and if the “Make Mine Marvel” rumors are true, they’ll soon be returning to a predominately white and male cast of headliners with a handful of exceptions (hence why escape hatches were built into almost all of their recent successor characters – Mjolner was prophesied to return to the Odinson before the first issue of Jane Foster’s book, Tony Stark is only in stasis, the Ultimate Universe may or may not be waiting out there for Miles and his cast to return, etc.) They don’t think there’s a new audience to be won, or at minimum they clearly haven’t given any thought to the kind of formatting, publication, narrative or marketing breakthroughs that might let them reach that wider audience (probably part of why they’re so petrified of staying in retailers’ good graces – digital of the way of the future, but they don’t believe they’re going to see that future, therefore they’re sticking to appealing to the base while they can), and so naturally they’re going to the tried-and-true methods of drawing cash out of the existing audience until it all falls apart, by which time everyone currently at the top will have new jobs or be retired.

So that Marvel in particular has been overly contemptuous of progressive elements of their fanbase isn’t shocking. I doubt their leadership of middle-aged guys have any particular sympathy for their viewpoint, and if they don’t see them as a potential pathway to saving the industry either, then it’s not a surprise they clearly see them as a gaggle of mercurial, industry-ignorant whiners, to be discarded once the half-hearted measures at winning them over aren’t enough. And if they’ve decided they don’t give a shit about progressive ideals in the slightest beyond what’s necessary to avoid mainstream attention on their fuck-ups, and they don’t seem to be trying to bring about a workable model for the industry – especially given that they’re at this point unquestionably the secondary caretakers of these characters compared to TV and movies, so these franchises can go on without them – and they’re convinced shock value stunts and events are the only way to draw in dollars while they can, then yeah. Sure. Why wouldn’t they make Captain America a Nazi? To think that’s a bad idea would require meaningfully giving a shit about their own product, or at least thinking that anyone else will in a few years.

As for the Fantastic Four, that’s probably still in Fox’s hands, but I really do hope Al Ewing gets a crack at them someday.

Requested by twentyonepenxuins

You sighed rubbing your face in frustration. Every part of you wanted to throw this book away and never look at it again but you had a huge test coming up and getting a low grade was practically your biggest fear.

“How’s the studying going?” Peter suddenly asked sitting next to you. You let out a groan in response. Words could not express how you were feeling right now.
“That great huh?”.

“I’m so stressed out” you confessed, wanting to pull your hair out.
“But I want to keep up my average and… and”.

“Maybe you should take a break” Peter suggested closing your text book. You almost had a heart attack as he did so.

“I can’t”.

“Of course you can. You have tons of time to study and you continue at this rate you’re going to over work yourself. Come on [Y/N] just take a moment to breath”.

You sucked in a breath.
“You’re right Pete. I’ll take a small breather”.

Telling the Team

“Don’t assume, ask. Be kind. Tell the truth. Don’t say anything you can’t stand behind fully. Have integrity. Tell people how you feel.”-Warsan Shire


“What should we do for dinner?”

Raven looked up from her book, lips pursing in the way that made Beast Boy’s heart race. He watched as she contemplated, her book resting casually in her hands. “Hmm…I don’t know. Wasn’t Cyborg going to order pizza?”

Beast Boy shrugged. “Do you want pizza? We can do something else.” He fiddled with a loose thread on her cape as he spoke, his gaze lingering in hers. Her irises sparkled like amethysts in daylight, and she smiled. The action made his breath hitch, and he marvelled at how utterly breathtaking Raven was.

Even now, after knowing her for what felt like a lifetime, she was the most beautiful thing he’d ever laid eyes on. In fact, she seemed to grow more and more beautiful each day, something he hadn’t known was possible until he’d started to fall in love with her.

“Have something in mind?” she asked, her voice light and warm. Beast Boy shrugged again, a bashful smile dancing across his lips.

“Well, there’s that new burrito place, and I hear they have veggie options…” He trailed off, peering at her hopefully. She sighed, though he could still see a ghost of a grin on her lips, and carefully closed her book.

“Fine. But you’re paying.”

Beast Boy gasped, clutching at his heart dramatically. “How dare you, accuse me of not being a gentleman?” His dramatics earned him a soft giggle, eliciting a warmth within him. Beast Boy loved making her laugh.

It was the most beautiful sound in the world.

“I’m going to get ready, then,” Raven said. She slid off the bed, running a hand through his hair before drifting off towards the bathroom.

Beast Boy sighed happily, that stupid grin still plastered on his face. He and Raven had been dating for a couple of months now, and as sappy as it was, life was now pure bliss. They’d quickly settled into a comfortable rhythm; hanging out in one of their rooms, occasional date nights, and lots of cuddling while binging Netflix.

Hey everyone, I have a request

For several years now, I have been teaching archery, and one of my mainstay students, Trevor is black. He’s 13 now, and we both love comic books and the Barton Brothers. Naturally while I love Barney, he’s drawn to Clint, mainly the Cinematic version, and the Ultimate comics. The thing is, he wants a comic book archer that looks like him, and save for Green Arrows kid, and one panel from Ultimate Power, there are no Marvel black archers we can find

If any one can help, that would be really awesome! Please and thank you

Start (Draco Malfoy x reader)

Ravenclaw: intelligent, studious, graceful. I indeed have these qualities, and I do have my faults and flaws, but my twin brother, Harry, seems to have hardly any flaws and dealt with less than me. Sure, Harry was put in a little cupboard under the stairs with only enough room to lie down, but he had a blanket and privacy. And I’d like to make the record straight that I’m not envious or jealous of my brother. I’d give my life for him. I know that people recognize him more than me. People have referred to me as “The Chosen One’s Sister.” I have a name… And I have every right to be upset about being ignored or brushed off. The only difference is that I’m not radical or acting in an immature manner like Loki from the Marvel comics. (Luna bought me some of the comics which I deeply appreciated.)

Sometimes I do enjoy the solitude. I can sneak in the hallways and go to secret little places and spaces that no one thinks to look or go. I can do what I want and feel perfectly at home.

I was walking in the hallways holding my books and was greeted by Rob and Hermione. They told me that Harry wanted to talk later, but couldn’t now. I simply said “Okay,” and kept walking. Neville, Dean, Seamus, and I were going to meet up for a fun study session. I feel most comfortable when I’m with the right group of people, but it’s better being alone. It’s hard to tell if people like you for you or if they’re pretending. It’s difficult for me to tell the difference. As I kept walking, I heard someone or several certain unsophisticated individuals start to tease me.

“Well, if it isn’t the Chosen One’s sister,” of course it was him again. Draco Malfoy.

I kept walking, not in the mood to deal with him or his pettiness.

“Oi! I’m talking to you! It’s impolite to ignore someone when they are ta-” I didn’t let him finish and nonchalantly cast a spell on him while I walked. It made his mouth unable to open for four hours. I had a crush on Draco, but I don’t like the way he treats people. Especially Harry.

After the study session, I decided to make my hammock and lay in it.

“What the bloody hell, (y/n)?!” Yelled Draco. “How dare you?! This is exactly why-”

“’ (Y/n), you uncultured mudblood. No wonder why no one pays attention to you or takes you seriously. Nobody likes you. They tolerate you. Etcetera etcetera etcetera.’ Anything else, Draco? You’re not very good at coming up with new material and you can’t use what I’ve already accepted against me. So you might as well leave while you can. Quit wasting my time, you spoiled brat.”

Draco became even angrier, but stomped off. See, Harry knows how to defend himself, but he doesn’t really take much action or say the right words or arrange them in the necessary order for the situation.
I stayed in my hammock until it was time to eat supper. I sat with enough space for myself to read while I ate. (I read anything I found interesting which happened to be many things.)
Our owls began to deliver packages and letters. Unexpectedly, I received one. The envelope was written by… Draco? What could he want now?

I opened the letter to read:

Dear (Y/n),

I don’t know how to say this, but I must speak to you. It’s an emergency. I understand if you don’t want to, but if so meet me in the halls at 10 PM. Please.

-Draco Malfoy

I blushed. He’s never written something like this to me. He’s never written anything to me period. I looked over at Harry and he caught me eye and smiled and waved. I returned the gesture. I can’t tell Harry. I couldn’t. I hid the note in my robe. I finished eating and walked to the halls. Could it be possible he would actually apologize and be a genuine person? Could I be the first person to see that?

I slowed when I saw to large shadows from the corner. My eyes widened when I noticed it was Crab and Goyle. I came to a stop until Pansy showed up behind them. I turned to run, but I felt myself being slammed against a pillar. Pansy stood in front of me.

“You’re disgusting. Did you really think that your feelings towards him was a secret? And on top of that you constantly make him look like a fool and humiliate him! I’m going to make your life miserable. Your perfect brother will be next.”

I couldn’t move and started panicking. Pansy ordered for Goyle to place the tip of his wand on the inside of my arm where doctors draw blood through needles. Then came the electrifying pain. I tried to scream, but nothing would come out. It hurt. It burned. It was as if I was being struck over and over again by a small lightning bolt.

Then it stopped.

I slumped to the floor with my ears ringing, my eyes blinding me with neon colors, and my body aching in the worst way.

I heard the mumble of what could’ve been yelling and fighting and could barely make out what I was seeing. I felt myself being picked up and taken somewhere. I felt soft and warm, but my head kept spinning and my skin kept sweating. I could barely hear. I felt my head propped up and the presence of multiple people around me. I felt drops hitting my eyes and a clothe covering them. With that I fell into a deep sleep.

I woke up feeling groggy and less sore. I moved the cloth away from my eyes and could see clearly.

“(Y/n)! Oh thank Merlin!” Harry cried. He gently hugged me. “I’m sorry. I’m so so sorry. I’ve been a neglectful brother to you and I should’ve done more.”

I carefully hugged him back. “What happened?” He pulled away and I noticed Ron and Hermione and more of our friends with me.

“You’re not going to believe this,” Ron started, “Draco saved you.”

“…” I blinked in disbelief, “What?”

“Well, Pansy, Crab, and Goyle attacked you and he stepped in and punched Goyle. He put a spell on Pansy and Crab ran off. He told Professor McGonogall everything and she told Snape and Dumbledore.”

“And how, pray tell, do you know this?”

“Dean and Seamus almost got caught ease dropping,” said Blaise.

“Blaise?” I tilted my head.

“Don’t tell anybody I’m here.”

“Gotcha.”

“You’ll be okay. In the meantime, get some rest,” Harry said.

Everyone eventually left.

The next time I woke up, I found chocolate frogs, bottles of butterbeer, and any other kind of treat given by many people with little cards that told me in detail to get well soon on the night stands next to me. I smiled at that. It was still nighttime.

I sat up when a nurse came to me and handed me my dinner. I thanked her before she left. I ate everything on my big plate since I had been sleeping for so long. My belly was full and my body was almost done recuperating. Out of the corner of my eye I saw none other than Draco walk in and I subconsciously scooted away from him. Well, as far as my bed would allow.

“(Y/n)” he froze when he saw how I reacted. He analyzed the scars on my body from the electrical shock. He noticed how the corners where my eyes were had many tiny and dark freckles almost like ashes. I looked away from him in disbelief.

“Thank you for saving me. It is much appreciated and I’m grateful you did. Now you don’t have to make me. You should leave before you get in trouble. You can’t be out of bed at this hour.” I didn’t hear Draco approach me and sit in the chair next to me. When I swiveled my head to look him in the eyes with the courage I could muster, he embraced me. Draco rested his forehead on my shoulder.

“I wanted to apologize for my behavior. I was being incompetent. And you’re right. I am a spoiled brat. I’m insecure and I put you through awful things. After what I saw with you and Pansy, I was livid. I thought I almost killed someone. I care about you with every fiber of my being.”

I couldn’t believe what I heard. This had to have been a lie.

“I told Blaise that I didn’t want to like you and Pansy heard me and went after you.”

“Draco, it’s okay.”

“No it’s not. You could’ve died. If I hadn’t stepped in right away you would’ve never woken up. I couldn’t lose you,” he had been shaking lightly and tears leaked from his eye ducts.

“I forgive you. It’s okay. I care about you, too.”

“Give me a chance to right my wrongs and fix my mistakes and to learn from them. To be honest with you. I can’t hold things in anymore. And I can’t hide my feelings for you.”

“You don’t have to anymore, but you have to stop acting like a jerk. Stop hating the world,” I rubbed his back with my bandaged hand. “Start forgiving.”

He pulled away and kissed me slowly. We both knew that meant “Yes, I will start to.”


@meganlpie

You want me to do what now...?

Can I just summarize Brandon Sanderson’s Cosmere? Well, imagine if the entire Marvel universe had been birthed and existed in just one man’s brain…

Oh yeah, and he has several books/series/novellas that exist separate from the Cosmere too, so there’s that…

Definitely sure this man sold his soul to some kind of a mythological demon in exchange for supernatural powers.

The story of us is it already told?
Let’s tear the book apart
start to rewrite it all.
We’re already gone, but still in this together
like a dragon to his gold
we’re still holding on.


I was sitting in the so called “Flash Cave”, which (Y/N) and Cisco had named this place. A lot happend and I didn’t told our team about everything. A few knew what happend during the flashpoint but there is one thing that I didn’t told Y/N… We were a couple and loved each other more than anyone else. She was always on my side. Always… Even during the time where I loved Iris, she was still there. Not as my girlfriend but as my friend and later… I fell hard in love with her.

Our lives will wait for us to live.
We don’t need a lifetime
to figure out what we miss.
The love we get is the love we give.
I’m only just full of love
that we’re to give.


All this thoughts came to my mind again when my eyes met (Y/N)’s today. She was talking to HR and her boyfriend. It wasn’t me. Of course not. Why would she date me? I did many mistakes… I wish I could tell her how much I still love her…

This is the ghost of you
haunting the ghost of me
hanging out in this world forever.
Tell me who’s good now?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Oooohhhhh


Y/N smiled at me and waved slightly her hand. I returned her smile but stopped it immediately when her gaze turned back to her talking boyfriend. It was so hard to pretend to be happy for them. To like this guy. Afterall he had the best person I had in my whole life. I wish that I could go back in time and be on her side again… To feel her hugs. Her lips. Everything that I loved so much and fancied everyday…

Somehow we will change everything that we touch.
But we held on, took flight
but changed it too much.
We sweep up this love
put the pieces back together
and if we find more can we bring this to life?


But I am sure that I can’t go back. I don’t want to ruin her life. Even through she is the love of my life…

Our lives will wait for us to live.
We don’t need a lifetime to figure out what we miss
The love we get is the love we give.
I’m only just full of love that we’re to give.


I miss her so much…. I love her. Oh god….. I can’t hold it anymore…

This is the ghost of you
haunting the ghost of me
lonely in a crowded room together.
Tell me who’s good now?
This is the ghost of you
haunting the ghost of me
hanging out in this world forever.
Tell me who’s good now?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Oooohhhhh


I stood up and told everyone that I had to take some fresh air and left the room and run all the way, so fast out without noticing that tears fell out of my eyes and that some (e/c) orbs has watched me the whole time. And while I was now on the ground and tried to stop crying, I had only one thought…..

Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Can’t we get an alternate ending?
Oooohhhhh

Quicksilver:


the hot, athletic, Russian, “I look good without trying”, “Don’t you touch my sister or I will murder you”, “You know you want me in your pants right now” one,


and the cool, rocker, ahead of his time, “I look badass and I know it”, “I steal random shit because I can and what else I am supposed to do”, “Doing crazy shit gives me a thrill” one (that got a super sick slo-mo scene).


I think I speak for all of us here when I say I definitely can’t pick between them.


(side note: evan’s version was anti-authority and liked to nick things and was a fast talker, literally, and aaron’s version was quite a cocky piece of shit and protective as shit of his sister and between the two of them they got the impatience and the running down pat so I think that’s why I can’t pick one. They both make up the entire character so you can’t say one is better.)

Name: Alex
Age: 19
Country: Venezuela

Hello! I’m Angie, but I go by ‘Alex’ a lot in social media. I’m from Venezuela, but I’m planning to move to Spain relatively soon, that’s exciting!.
I want to study languages, and my dream in life is to be a polyglot. Right now I’m fluent in Spanish and English, and I’m trying to learn Japanese!. In the meantime however, I work as an english tutor and freelance Illustrator, with the odd graphic design Job because you can’t tell people you can draw without them wanting you to design them something (not complaining, its good money). As you may have noticed, I talk a lot, I really don’t know when to shup up, so if you’d like to receive a novela worth of letters then I’m your girl.
I’m a total nerd, in both the pop culture sense and science one. I absolutely love animation, but not animating, and comics of all kind. Marvel is my favorite, but DC has its good stories. I really want to make a graphic novel of my own someday, hopefully I will!.

Preferences: anywhere from 17 to 25 is great by me.
Important: Until I move to Spain, I probably will have to rely on Emails (post service here is TERRIBLE) so if that’s an issue then :(
