Wishing the happiest of birthdays to my dear @otakorner!!
You’re the best space ranger partner a girl could ever ask for and about the only person in the universe I would go through the mortification of getting this cake made for lol
Also many many thanks to @thesearchingastronaut for granting me permission to use your beautiful art for this! 💕
Hi Gerec ! I was talking about the movie Cherik relationship to a friend who has basically no knowledge of X-men, and he was adamant it sounded abusive to him - I never really saw it as abusive, despite Charles'trust being time and time again betrayed, cause I also know Erik’s deep love and devotion to Charles…but he did raise interesting points. Do you see Logan’s relationship with Charles as inherently more healthy for him? Also, how interesting that Logan fell for Jean, who is basically a female version of Charles, especially in X-men Apocalypse…
Boy oh boy this is one issue that’s sure to get the Cherik fans in an uproar LOL. Since your friend doesn’t have any knowledge of X-Men then I would say he is likely making a judgement call based on pretty broad strokes, without really knowing any of the intricacies/complications inherent in that particular relationship. :D
As with you, I personally don’t see their relationship as being abusive (no opinion on their comic counterparts - I don’t know enough about them) because to me, a large part of abuse comes from an imbalance of power, and often with one partner enforcing some form of control over the other. So while I do think they can/have been bad TO each other…no, I don’t think I quite agree with your friend about their relationship being abusive. That isn’t to say that I haven’t seen it portrayed that way in fic because there’s been a LOT of that (and I’m not a fan, at ALL).
Second question - Do I think a relationship between Charles and Logan would be a healthier one (than Charles and Erik) for Charles? Short answer - 100%.
Long answer - The fan and the fic writer in me love both relationships as being equally beautiful but completely different things. Charles and Erik have combustible chemistry, tragic history, compelling personalities and a connection with each other that’s incredibly attractive as a pairing (to ship and to explore in fic!) But sometimes that kind of thing isn’t sustainable in the long term, for exactly those same reasons. Charles and Logan have a relationship built on mutual trust and affection, a deep abiding friendship and common goals/outlook; nothing to sneeze at if you want a solid foundation for something strong and long lasting. Relationships are hard, and love should make you HAPPY, at least more often than leaving you with a broken heart…
So I guess both is good in fic! Though something closer to Charles/Logan’s would be more ideal for real life in my humble opinion lol.
I don’t think I’ve ever been a fan of the Logan/Jean pairing (I’m a Scott/Jean fan myself) so I can’t really comment on it lol. And I think we can love the same qualities in different people so it wouldn’t be too much of a leap to say Logan admires similar qualities in both Jean and Charles, though I don’t find them to be necessarily carbon copies of each other :D :D :D
i remember that time an anon came to you asking you something about her period because she was concerned and you know, people often think you're a girl. and you weren't dismissive at all but kindly told her that you wouldn't know because you're a guy but that she should definitely go to a doctor and get that checked out and honestly!! you're so sweet!!! and so nice!! and SO good at singing omg i wish i were rich so i could hire you to lull me to sleep err night!! i hope you have an amazing life!
sdklfjalgjalfjaasjldgk who are you!!! you are so sweet this is like the nicest thing anyone has ever said to/about me 😭
Leto did his method acting BS on new Blade Runner too. He wore blind contacts because his char is blind and the director said that seeing him in these contacts was "like seeing Jesus walking into a temple" and that he was "moved to tears". Leto is like a self-parody now.
Reading this made me throw up a bit in my mouth. He’s so extra. How do people stan that? So embarrassing…
The prompt was Robin and Regina sharing a blanket 😊
Also, I can’t remember who prompted this. I remember getting a message, but it’s not popping up on mobile…and I know the message exists bc I copied and laser it to an ask lol. Hoping whoever it was doesn’t miss it!
The Wrong Choice:
Two weeks ago, his life made sense, even if he didn’t always understand the world around him.
Suddenly waking up one morning in Storybrooke had been jarring–after all, it was a new land filled with new people, new clothes and foods and customs.
But after months of back and forth in the Enchanted Forest, here in Storybrooke he and Regina finally found themselves on the same page. She seemed more comfortable here, less guarded and, most importantly, she had her son.
Together, they’d been building a life. After a year, things were finally moving and they’d been going in a direction he liked–a direction he’d been excited about, and direction he was hopeful would continue.
And then it was all blown apart.
Somehow, someway Marian was alive–alive and in Storybrooke. And suddenly, he’d been made to choose. When he looked between them–between Regina and Marian–it felt impossible, and the two women represented such different parts of his story. But ultimately, Marian was his wife–a woman he’d vowed to love forever–and he made his choice.
Regina had agreed–tearfully so–and it broke his heart because he couldn’t tell her how he felt, it just wouldn’t have been fair. But he’d wanted to choose her.
And every day, he found himself regretting his choice…wondering if he’d made the wrong one…
Taking a breath, he stands in front of Regina’s vault–conflicted.
She’s there, but he shouldn’t be.
He was supposed to be trying to make things work with Marian and he’d promised to stay away, to give her her space and let her try to move on…
Yet he ached for her–heart, body an soul–and having her so near yet so far away felt impossible to manage. And he was losing his resolve to try…
The wind picks up and a chill runs down his spine, and he finds himself thinking of her, sitting down in the vault alone, trying to break some crazy curse she didn’t cast and save the town from some larger than life villain. He knew she’d spend hours and hours down there, hyper focused and blocking out the rest of the world–and she was likely dressed impractically.
He sighs, looking up at the rustling trees and he sees his breath cloud out in front of him, and he knows it’s only going to get colder–so, without overthinking it, he pushes himself toward the vault.
Regina flinches when she hears him on the stairs and he offers a lopsided grin, and for just a moment, it’s feels so normal and right.
“You shouldn’t be here,” she says, letting her eyes fall away from his.
“I was walking by and, I thought…”
He cuts her off with an annoyed sigh, hating the distance wedged between them, as he reaches across a trunk for an old knit blanket. “The temperature is dropping and…” He sighs. “That dress doesn’t even have sleeves.”
“That’s not your concern,” she says in a voice he suspects is supposed to have an edge, but only manages to fall flat. “But thank you for the weather update.”
“Not my concern?” He blinks. “Regina, I can’t just turn off my feelings for you. I can’t just stop caring.”
“No,” he interjects softly as he steps forward, tugging the knit blanket with him. “I’ll always care.”
Regina watches cautiously as he sits down and though her brow furrows, but she doesn’t protest when he fans the blanket around her shoulders.
“Can I help?”
“I want to.”
He watches as a little lopsided grin forms on her lips and her head bobs in a nod as she flips to a page in the book on her lap. “I’m looking for two ingredients. I’ve never seen them before and since you know the forest so well, maybe you’ll have an idea?”
He nods as she transfers the book to his lap and points to the marked page as a little gust of wind sweeps into the vault, sending a chill up his spine.
“I’ll even share my blanket, if you can solve this mystery for me,” she tells him as she slides a little closer and drapes half of the blanket over his arms.
He grins as her checks flush a bit–and right then, he knows for certain he’s made the wrong choice.
Honestly I didn’t have to answer this ask with pictures but I did and I’ve been working on this on and off for the last week so I hope it came out okay lol Whoever is asking me all these cute asks, I hope y'all have good dental coverage because I am here to give you cavities. (or at least I am gonna freaking try lel)
Can you do an Exo and BTS reaction to you wanting an abortion? (Dark af lol)
I’m really sorry to whoever asked this but unfortunately I don’t write for Exo. I love the music and the band but I don’t know the members quite as well as I’d like to. Until I get more familiar with their personalities, I will just be writing for BTS and Hotshot. Monsta X and Exo may be added soon. Check the bio tab in my theme for the bands I’m writing.
*Disclaimer* I had a bit of trouble with this one. I literately thought all day about what I was going to write. In the end, I chose all the boys to be pro-choice, or at least okay with it. I know that’s not how everyone views abortions but I thought it’d be for the best. There are also no break-ups, in case you were worried.
He’d be supportive. But under it all, he’d be a bit disappointed; he had been looking forward to being a dad more than anything for the longest time. Of course he would still be accepting, making sure that whatever you wanted, you could have. Cuddles, movies, snacks, etc. Being by your side the entire time.
“And you’re sure about this? That’s fine, baby. Do you need anything?”
He would be in a bit of a shock, he wouldn’t quite understand until you explained it full. He’d start to think he hadn’t been seeing the whole picture for quite a while now. Again, like Hoseok, he’d be supportive. He’d ask if you still wanted kids eventually, maybe the weeks and weeks of work and planning might eventually be used at some point in the future. He’d want to give you the time and resources to figure this out, giving you a big kiss before heading off to bed so that you could have some much needed you-time.
“But jagi, do you still want to be a parent someday?”
Yoongi would be surprised. He wouldn’t really understand why you wanted to do this, but he’d hear you out. It’d take a while to adjust, and he knew it’d take a while for you to as well. He’d give you your space for a bit, until you requested for his help or he thought it was needed.
“If that’s really what you want… I don’t want to get in your way”
He’d be a bit sad, but he understood. Even though he would have been looking forward to being a dad and it was something he’d always dreamed about, in the end, of course he wanted the best for you and your body. He’d be concerned about the relationship and keeping it up through a transition period, he’d be there for you the whole time, he’d kiss you, cuddle you, cook for you, anything.
“You know I love you, if you think this is the right decision then I wont be mad”
For Jungkook, it would take a while to sink in. Yes, you two were both pretty young, but that didn’t take away from the fact that he was looking forward to having a child. He understood where you were coming from, and knew it was going to be for the best. He’d do anything to comfort you
“It’s okay, princess. We’re both young. If you want to have a kid later that’s great, if you don’t that’s okay too. I’ll still be here”
His initial reaction would be confusion, he’d want to hear why you wanted to go through with something difficult like an abortion. It’d take a bit of getting used to. Up to that point, he was practically all ready to be a dad, putting that on the back burner would be a big step, but a step he was willing to take. He’d give you the space you needed but was still there for you every step of the way.
“If you really want this then I am happy to go through it with you. I still love you 100% and I want you to remember that”
At first, he’d feel as though he was left in the dark. Why didn’t you tell him you wanted this before? How long had you not wanted this child? Were you sure was what you wanted? No matter the reasons, he’d want what’s best for you. The months of work might not have payed off yet, but it might someday. He’d make sure to make you feel even more at home in his company while you went through the process.
“There’s still plenty of time. If this is what you want right now then you can have it. I’ll support you no matter what”
