Being a small but mighty Avenger:

  • You and Stark were having a conversation when Barton walked into the room, gasped and said “did I just walking into munchkin land?”
  • Steve actually has to look down since he’s so tall.
  • Being more sassy then Tony.
  • Trust me when I say every mission is a sass competition.
  • Nick Fury thinks your hilarious.
  • Thor really likes you, he brings you clothes from Asgard but since you’re so small they just swamp you.
  • Bucky winds you up about your height.
  • “Why’re you so angry down there?” He’ll say whilst patting your head.
  • If Wanda tries to lift you up with her powers on a mission she’ll always misjudge and do it too low. Luckily for you, you can do a mega jump which never ceases to impress the team.
  • You have a brightly coloured uniform to match your personality, Tony said it was necessary.
  • Vision sometimes doesn’t understand your sarcasm.
  • Clint is the kind of guy who you’d go to a restaurant where kids go free and he’ll turn to you and say “you’re twelve years old okay?”
  • You’re brilliant on missions, your slyness mixed with your height is the perfect combination. 
  • Bruce thinks your adorable.
  • It’s low key annoying.
  • Every. Damn. Villain says “I thought you’d be taller.”
  • Jogs with Sam Wilson but he’s way faster then you so when he’s running in front of you he says stuff like “I’d like to thank my mum for long legs.”

Professor Scamander and the Horned Serpent – Chapter 1

Newt Scamander has agreed to teach briefly at Ilvermorny, following the school’s decision to allow him to lecture the students about magical creatures as an elective class. Here he meets a girl in her final year, who belongs to the scholarly house of Horned Serpent. She drives Newt crazy, and the two get into a lot of mischief behind the backs of both the students and staff.

Pairing: Next Scamander x Reader

Word Count: 1268

Warnings: Large age gap between characters (Newt is around 30, reader is 18), smut to come in future chapters. ;^)

A/n: I’m sorry but I couldn’t help it. I just needed to write a sinful teacher x student series for Newt. Pls forgive me.

You were trembling, your small hands gripping at the sides of your new stiff navy and cranberry coloured uniform. Coming from a family that wasn’t the wealthiest, your mother had ordered your uniforms 2 sizes too big for you, claiming that you would “grow into them”. You watched on curiously as the next student got up to stand in the magic circle, surrounded by four statues. As the young boy stood in the middle, the golden rings around the elevated ground glowed brightly as the creatures decided whether they wanted the boy for their house. Shortly, the Pukwudgie statue on the eastern side of the circle lit up, signalling that the boy would now belong to that proud house.

“(Y/n) (y/l/n).” You jumped as your name was called, slowly making your way through the crowd to the front. “Your turn sweetie.” The Headmistress placed a comforting hand on your back, leading you towards the altar-like space. You took a deep breath as you ceased all movement, feeling the statues of the house’s respective creatures stare into your soul. A grand light burst from the Thunderbird statue, but at the same time an even more remarkable brightness shone from the eyes of the Horned Serpent. It was not a peculiar instance for more than one house to offer its place to a student, but you had never imagined you would be one of the lucky few who got to choose their house. You pondered for a moment, wondering which you valued more; adventure or knowledge. You pursued both enthusiastically, but you had to consider which house your skills would be most valuable to. You turned to the Horned Serpent, realising that your grand abilities in your academic work were much more attuned and at hand.

Besides, you could still be a great scholar and adventurer, right?

Starfleet Cadets Asha Bashir and Nog, both the first of their species to join. It’s uncharted territory, but they look delighted to be traversing it.

Cadet uniforms in my AU have more colour bands. This is because with the sheer range of different shapes and sizes of aliens wearing the uniform, the single colour band around the neck may not be visible or even possible. Colour bands around the neck but also a few of the limbs seems like a good practical way to be sure that the division is clear from any angle. For Asha and Nog, one colour band would have been fine, but there’s more on there anyway. Next time I draw an alien starfleet officer, I’ll probably apply the same changes to the full uniform.

Speaking of uniform: I’ve drawn it before but haven’t really talked much about how Ferengi wings + clothing works. Ferengi are flightless, and like Cardassians they’re primarily quadruped with bipedal capability. The wings aren’t used for anything practical at all, and haven’t been for as long as Ferengi in their modern form have existed - they’re only still around (and still big) because they’re considered attractive, pretty much. For this reason, there’s no disadvantage to the multitude of piercings Ferengi have along the membranes in order to hook fabric and accessories around the arm and digit. You can see some of the piercings and hooks in this earlier art of Quark from two years ago


While I have my costume analysis brain on, Bioware has actually done a good, logical design: The flight/shipsuits. I think that this may be a Bioware first.

They appear to be inspired from a blend of bikersuits and protective work gear and good ol’ uniforms, these are actual garments that would be completely feasible to be widely worn in a space exploration setting. Padded and fitted with a high neck they’re neat and functional with a high level of protection when if things go awry. Appropriate for the myriad jobs and scenarios that any individual may find themselves in whilst being uniform. Colours and panelling denote role and status. And there are logical fastenings. All while sitting in that Mass Effect Aesthetic.

Bonus! The ladies don’t seem to have faux-wedgies/-cameltoe via crazy panelling and I think they may be bum-window free. Good job, Bioware.
