say kitty

((After Toad meets with Mystique for the first time, he’s tasked with finding out more about Scott and the Xavier Institute, and he shows up in his costume. I’m certain he didn’t have that thing before, so the only logical explanation is Mystique made it for him.  Either she sewed it, commissioned it, or (as I prefer to think bc it’s funny) she made it from cast-off skin as @sneakymystique headcanons Mystique does for clothes. This means Mystique shapeshifted into Toad, and Toad is wearing her skin.

Also, Xavier, “testing” Todd before extending an offer to him probs isn’t the best way to gain his trust. I’m p. sure no one else had to do that to get an offer.

Any time this month wants to stop shitting on me...

Lost my job.

Lost the feeling of safety living at home.

And now I’ve had to say goodbye to the kitty who’s been the one constant in my life for 21 years. I’m so fucking tired.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
