This whole page is just fantastic. Now Kitty’s got it locked into her head that she CAN make her case to Xavier, we see her utter tenacity. As well as, I think, hints of the leader she’ll one day become. One pah doesn’t work, she’ll try another, and another, and another.
Plus come on, Kitty beat Xavier, THE WORLD’S MOST POWERFUL TELEPATH, at chess, in a move he never saw coming, WHILE PITCHING HERSELF.
Kitty Pryde is amazing and if you don’t agree, you’re wrong.
*remembers the day Kitty beat the fox within an inch of her life, dropped her mangled body on the table during dinnertime, declared herself Queen, and dared anyone else to question her authority*
*glances nervously at Kitty*
*loafing in a sunbeam, thinking about donuts*
imagine vixx eating breakfast. leo has raisin bran which he has picked all of the bran out of (it’s just raisins), n is eating the leftover bran, hyuk eats Trix but only after it’s sat long enough to turn the milk a cute color, hongbin has a hello kitty bowl full of raw meat, ken has a bowl of lucky charms marshmallows. if ravi wakes up he eats unfrosted mini-wheats because he’s boring.
This is my 10th year of music blogging and I’m being spoiled rotten by how much great music has been released (it’s actually a bit overwhelming). From landmark albums from seasoned artists like Sufjan, Father John Misty and Kendrick to incredible debuts from Natalie Prass, Leon Bridges and Jamie XX, 2015 has it all, and looking at the upcoming release calendar, I doubt it’ll be slowing down any time soon. As usual, I’ve listed my best albums chronologically below and you can listen to my favorite songs in this ongoing Spotify playlist. Enjoy!

summary: Sometimes, all it took was one, single phone call to make someone’s day that little bit brighter. a/n: So, did you know that a number of Chinese adoption sites, books, and other such related items often use ladybugs on them? Considering Marinette is a Chinese-French teenager, I decided to write this. Hope you all enjoy!
Winter had embraced the city of Paris overnight, wiping the slate clean and the cobblestone streets in flakes of white. Grey overcast clung to the once-blazing Autumn sunsets, and whilst rare, the canopy of stars that dotted through the skies suddenly vivified tenfold.
Marinette clutched the cup of tea closer to her chest as she watched the slow snowfall. The steam rose up, making her chest warm, and she could almost forget about the city aging before her.
She smiled as she felt a pair of large, warm hands on her shoulders, and a chin resting atop her head.
Coming up with excuses for things that Marinette gained due to Ladybug was a very difficult task. For instance, a few days ago Marinette was fighting an akuma as Ladybug, and Chat Noir accidentally whacked her right forearm with his baton. Marinette still had an ugly, purple bruise to show for it.
“Woah, that looks painful. What happened?” Alya inquired.
Marinette chuckled nervously. “Oh, I was babysitting Manon and she accidentally knocked me into a table! Kids, right?”
Adrien and Nino, overhearing this conversation, turned to join in. By now, they had become a regular part of Marinette and Alya’s lives. Marinette immediately noticed Adrien staring, mouth gaping, at the bruise. She shifted her hand over her arm to conceal the embarassing wound.
Alya and Nino began chatting about the latest akuma attack. Tuning out from their conversation, Marinette was about to go fill up her water bottle when Adrien spoke up.
“Hey, Marinette, you haven’t seen Chat Noir recently, have you?”
Her face flushed. Just remembering the last time she was with that silly kitty made her heart beat pound a little faster. “U-uh…no? Not recently. Why do you ask?”
“Oh,” Adrien breathed, still gazing at the spot her bruise was in, “no particular reason…”
“Speaking of Chat Noir, Adrien! I had no idea you had such big biceps, dude!” Nino exclaimed.
Adrien opened his mouth as if to say something, but no words came out. Glancing down at his arms, he exhaled forcefully. Nino was right; the blond’s arms had become more toned, along with his leg muscles, recently. Marinette averted her attention to her own arms. To her slight dismay, she was gaining considerable muscle, too.
Glancing at Marinette’s arms, Adrien caught her gaze and smiled. “It looks like you’ve been gaining arm muscle, too, Mari!”
She grinned in return.
Before anyone could say anything more, the history teacher strolled through the door. Adrien and Nino swiveled around to face him, and Alya and Marinette payed attention to his greeting. Well, for the most part. Marinette’s mind still swirled with the knowledge that she had little biceps growing, from being Ladybug.
Hearing her teacher begin his lecture, she snapped out of her thoughts.
