Honestly, Wiccan is more then just a “superhero” to me. It might seem a little silly because its “just a comic book”, but seeing him overcome so much and to keep moving forward means a lot to me. I see myself A LOT in Wiccan, and having a hero that you can look up to like that and who is just inspiring over all is incredible.
I have anxiety that keeps me in the house most days. I have those bad thoughts. Some days I don’t think I’ll make it to tomorrow. I’ve almost made some bad decisions… but seeing Wiccan push through all that, and fight gives me hope that I can do it too.
Tommy had refused to tell you where he was taking you. You just knew that according to Clint, who Tommy had roped into flying the two of you there, it was a good choice. Though, when you stepped off of the jet, there was no mistaking it.
“Paris?” you asked Tommy with an eyebrow raise.
“Yep!” Tommy said with a cheeky smile.
“I didn’t think you’d be the type to pick Paris,” you commented. “I expected Disneyland to be more your style.”
“I’m not much of a romantic person, so I figured I’d let the city do it for me,” he commented, glancing around. “Though, I’m not sure how romantic a place can be when there’s bars on every window like it’s a prison. Also, there’s a Disneyland here if you still want to do that.”
You looked, and sure enough, pretty much every ground-floor window had bars covering them, and every window above that had bars over the lower half.
You punched Tommy playfully on the shoulder. “Hey, don’t ruin it,” you scolded. “Paris is beautiful and we are so going up in the Eiffel Tower. Where is it?”
“I got it,” Tommy said, picking you up bridal-style and suddenly, everything but him was a blur. You squealed in surprise, still not used to suddenly going super-speed.
Barely a second later, the two of you stopped. You looked up to see the Eiffel Tower looming above you.
“Are you going to make that noise every time I take you somewhere?” Tommy teased, setting you down.
“Hey, I’m not as used to going super-speed as you are,” you replied. You grabbed his hand and pulled him over to where the booth was to go up into the Eiffel Tower. “Wait, do you even have euros?”
“I had Steve convert some money to euros for me,” Tommy said. “And you know I’m not one for hand-holding.”
“It’s Valentines Day. You can slow down enough for me to hold your hand for one day,” you said, giving Tommy your best puppy-dog eyes.
Tommy huffed, turning away so he could try to hide the blush on his cheeks. He didn’t know his ears turned red, too. “I guess,” he replied. He would never admit it, but your puppy-dog eyes always worked on him.
“Thank you,” you said, letting go of his hand to give Tommy a hug.
Tommy chuckled a little. “Yeah, yeah,” he said, patting your head. You pulled back from the hug and again pulled him to the ticket booth.
You guys, I’d forgotten how funny Allan Heinberg’s original Young Avengers run is, and I’d forgotten how much I love drawing funny things! Drawing this scene made me so, so, so happy. (I hope you like it, @cris-art!!!)
If you want a more in-depth post with the three page comparisons (mine to the originals), you can find it on my blog over here! I also posted one of the page comparisons earlier on this tumblr here.
I hope everyone’s having a spectacular Friday!!! <3
