I want to talk about how magnus actually struggled so much with his immortality and fear of not being strong enough to live that he would of took his own life if someone hadn’t stopped him. I want to talk about how the person who stopped him manipulated him time and time again throughout his life so much that he believed she was the only one he could depend on forever. I want to talk about how magnus washed his hands with that unhealthy relationship and finally started to realise that he’s worth more than that. I want to talk about how magnus takes in downworlders and helps them when they are struggling because he never wants them to go through what he went through. I want to talk about how magnus considers raphael a son to him and how he would do anything to protect him and care for him. I want to talk about how he’s took simon under his wing too and wants to mentor him so simon doesn’t feel alone. I want to talk about how magnus made himself a family and that family keeps expanding and growing and he surrounds himself with people he loves and people who love him in return. I want to talk about how magnus has an actual heart of gold and deserves all the love and happiness in the world.
Soooo today January 6th is “Él día de reyes” in my country AND also in Cuba //of course, thats the meaning of this plz// and i did a mini comic of Lance being cute with his coughcoughherocoughcough with Shiro hehe
Thanks to my daugther @stydia-is-life for help me with the idea and some things //one thing// with my basic-stupid english
So, I was watching a
documentary about the end of the 19th century and I saw this :
A sofa with three
seats so people can talk privately. The two seats version is called a
confidant and this one an indiscreet.
The historical or fantasy AU possibilities
King Erik and Queen
Magda have asked Lord Charles to sit with them, and everyone assume
they want to talk about the article Xavier wrote against some of the
kingdom policies or his school or something. Instead, after a while, they all
rise, go to the center of the room, and announce their future
Any OT3 discussing
their (future) relationship would be awesome.
Or maybe the third
seat is for the poor person who ended up chaperonning Charles and
Erik, a very hard job indeed. They can debate for houuuurs, and they have
a lot of difficulty with keeping their hands to themself.
Like… Hank ?
Which would actually be a good choice since Hank would feel terribly guilty if
he loses sight the couple, and Charles dooesn’t want Hank to feel guilty, so
he doesn’t try anything.
Or Moira ? No
one wants to be on her bad side.
What about Logan ?
He ended up in this situation because he is resistant to telepathy.
But when Charles starts proposing him to join them… Well he is
resistant to telepathy, not to Charles in general. It can even be an
abo verse in which alpha Erik and omega Charles are engaged, and Logan is supposed to make sure nothing happens before the wedding, but
Charles simply tells Logan that the trick to avoid a bond or pregnancy is
simply for the omega to top.
It’s such an important moment, and not just because Aly and Alexis got to be on screen together.
It’s important for Wesley. In fact, I think it’s absolutely vital to his development at this stage in his story arc. Because for the past year and a half, during season six of Buffy and season three of Angel, we’ve gotten to see these two concurrent, but very different stories play out.
Willow’s story is one of a young woman who made a lot of selfish choices and hurt the people closest to her. But because of the compassion, patience, and unconditional love shown to her by her friends, she was able to come back from it and return home to a group of people who very much wanted her to be a part of the family again.
Wesley’s story is one of a man who made the ultimate selfless choice, knowing how badly it would hurt the people closest to him, but also knowing how necessary it was. But because of the anger, hatred, and rejection he received from his friends, he was left lonely and bitter and drowning in regret and self hatred. When he returned, it was to a group of people who also very much wanted him to be a part of the family again, but none of them (Wesley included) would freely admit it, each for their own reasons.
The eventual convergence of these two story arcs makes a great deal of sense narrative-wise, although I don’t know if the writers intended for it to be as important, and as instrumental to Wesley’s growth, as I’m convinced it is.
Wesley is lost. He’s broken. He’s bitter, angry, and so very very alone. And he’s built a wall around himself to keep everyone out, to make them think he’s cool and calm and collected, to make them believe he doesn’t care. But thirty seconds into talking with Willow, he drops that wall, and he does it very easily. He does it almost eagerly. Because she’s not close to him so there’s less chance of him being hurt by letting her see him vulnerable. Because she likely doesn’t know the whole story and doesn’t have all the emotional baggage the others have with him. Because she’s asking.
For the first time, Wesley admits that he doesn’t want to be like this. He wants to get better, but he has no idea how. He doesn’t think he can. And he doesn’t expect Willow to understand, because she seems the same as he remembers her, and Wesley can’t imagine how someone could touch their inner darkness and not be profoundly changed by it.
But then Willow tells him what she’s done, and it’s…a huge revelation. Not just the fact that the shy, quiet bookworm he knew in Sunnydale is capable of flaying a man alive, but that she was capable of coming back from it. After all the terrible things she did, she’s still Willow. Wesley looks at her and sees someone who’s gone much further into the darkness than he has, someone who’s done much more terrible things than he’s even dreamed of doing, and instead of letting it destroy her, Willow has come out of it brighter and stronger on the other side, with her humor and her faith in humanity still intact.
And that’s when Wesley realizes that there’s hope for him. He doesn’t have to stay in the darkness. It’s okay to go back into the light. It’s okay to open up. It’s okay to let people in. It’s even okay to laugh again. If Willow could find forgiveness and redemption after what she did, then so could he. If Willow deserved a second chance, then maybe he did, too.
There’s a comic I found a while back that does an excellent job of visually showing the need for very dark storytelling (you can check it out here). The point of the comic is essentially that all the positive and uplifting words in the world won’t do you the slightest bit of good if they can’t reach you. When you’re down in the darkest depths, what you really need is something
that will meet you where you are, something that can offer you a
lifeline and pull you back up into the light.
Every time I see this comic, it reminds me of Willow and Wesley. Because that’s what she does for him. As much as Fred wanted to help Wesley, as much as she wanted to reach him, the best she could offer was platitudes. And that wasn’t what Wesley needed. What he needed was for someone to look him in the eyes and say “I’ve been there, and I came back from it.” And that’s what Willow does for him. She gives him her undivided attention, she listens to him, and she doesn’t respond by trying to be positive and insisting things will get better. When he tells her about facing his darkness, the look on her face is compassion and understanding and empathy and I’ve been there buddy all rolled into one. Willow is able to meet him where he is, in the depths of his own darkness and self loathing, and say I understand. And that’s the lifeline Wesley needs to pull him back up into the light.
And it works. This is when Wesley begins to turn things around. This is when he makes the conscious decision that he’s going to start getting better. Up to this point, he’s worked with the team out of necessity, but he hasn’t made any effort to mend all of his broken relationships. But in the episodes following Orpheus, he begins to do just that. Slowly, cautiously, Wesley starts trying to reach out to the people he loves. He explains to Fred why he got with Lilah. He finds quiet but meaningful ways to apologize to Angel for the damage he caused. He talks to Gunn like a friend instead of a rival, and Gunn reciprocates.
When season five begins, Wesley is doing a lot better, in large part due to the memory wipe erasing all knowledge of Connor from his mind. But when I look at the ways Wesley was already beginning to improve toward the end of season four, I think he would have been pretty close to all right even without the memory wipe.
All because of Willow. All because she inspired him to get better.
Prompt: Can you write a insert where the reader is the only human to know about Xavier, his condition, and helps out Calliban - albino mutant to take care of him whenever she can. Kind of set during the beginning of the movie when Logan refuses to talk about his health and storms out. She knows something is wrong with him so during the night she sneaks into his room to get answers from him.
This will be 2 parts. Just putting that out there! It’s also super bad lol
