[rotates to do the 69]

Technologically-challenged lush. Does have a name, but you can call me tonight.

This blog is run by a bird. It contains bad text posts, and sometimes hot mutant yaois.

I just saw the actual words ‘We know Magneto’s story intimately. It has been told often. He was a victim once. And then he decided that Genocide was okay. ‘ used by someone trying to assert that Magneto is a bad bad naughty villain and not a victim at all except oh that one time


I have no words


I’m really glad someone else called out that bullshit before I did. People just whittling down 50 years of characterization to “And then he decided Genocide was okay” like??? 


Max I didn’t realise you reblogged it with that gif I’m dying.

But yeah what ahuraboltagon said. At the risk of coming off as Taking Fiction Way Too Seriously, I also find it sketchy as hell to say something like ‘he was a victim once’ to describe like…living through the Holocaust…and general oppression…that persists through his (and other mutants’) entire life…y’know.



Days of Future Past (2014)

Every time I see this I can’t help saying “Magneto OUT” and snorting unattractively. Worse, now I just say that randomly in conversations with kellyoxenfree. WHY IS IT SO FUNNY.

It’s a testimony to the acting abilities of Sir Ian McKellen and Michael Fassbender that in the moment, Magneto works— the cape, the armor, the floating, alluvit. Once it’s giffed and divorced from context, you can see just how impressive it is that they make you believe in this guy completely when the movie’s running.


While I enjoy a great many of the wonderfully created AUs this fandom has to offer and I do enjoy how great McAvoy looks during Soccer Aid, a different type of Sport AU would be appreciated. Hockey perhaps? Or even a fictional sport with Quidditch? Rival Quidditch players Xavier and Lehnsherr having it out on their brooms? And releasing the tension later in the broom closet?

haha sounds like anon really just wants more Harry Potter AUs

but okay, while I realize that it’s pretty much futile to respond to posts like these, I’m going to anyway because I think we’ve had this kind of discussion before but it probably bears repeating, especially with the recent [ish] influx of new people in the fandom.

here’s my problem with this post: reader entitlement. maybe anon didn’t mean to come off as such, but it’s 8am and I’ve already casually discussed this post with a couple of different people and we’ve all agreed that to us, at least, it reads a lot like someone coming up to a drive thru menu and trying to order the type of fic they want.

you’re tired of football (soccer) AUs? great, don’t read them. you’d appreciate a different kind of sports AU? fantastic, that’s fine and dandy that you’d like a hockey AU, but why don’t you write one yourself? why do people have to stop writing football AUs in order to write you a hockey AU?

I’m only using these two as examples since they’re what was specifically named, but this goes for any type of AU - roommate AUs, canon-divergent AUs, space AUs, regency AUs, coffee shop AUs, you all know that the list goes on for eternity. writers are going to write about things that they like and what inspires them. if I want to write ten different fics where Charles is a dragon, then hell yeah (!!) I’m certainly allowed to do that, and if it happens to inspire three other writers to write dragon!Charles too, then I’m lucky! pro tip: exchange ‘dragon’ with ‘football player’ and we’re back to the original concept here.

this is a hobby and none of us are getting paid (if some of you are, please direct me to where I can sign up). this has all been said over and over again in a million different ways - here’s a post by Neil Gaiman that is sort of relevant - but boil it all down and the bottom-line fact of the matter is this: no one owes you anything.

if you’re worried your writing talents aren’t up to par, which you really shouldn’t be, my friend, then there are kinkmemes where prompts can be posted. if your prompt is inspiring, someone will come along and write you that hockey AU. and when they do? kudos the hell out of it. leave a lengthy comment on it. blog about it and write up a fic rec here on tumblr. love it! appreciate it.

as it happens, it’s easy in this fandom to be inspired to write a football AU while all of those Soccer Aid pics of McAvoy are floating around, and there’s nothing wrong with either loving or hating it. but just because you want to see a different kind of sport AU being written (and again - take a shot at writing it yourself, you can do it!!) doesn’t mean everyone else is suddenly obligated to stop working on what they want to write, what they like to write, and write just for you.

and as a disclaimer: this applies not only to writers but to artists as well.

This is the English word I want to get tattooed on my wrist. It means “to keep breathing even though the water rises all around you.” English is such a mystical exotic language. They can fit so much meaning into so small a word.



“If a director doesn’t want me, that’s their fucking loss.” — James McAvoy


preach it baby



Erik definitely could’ve finished buttoning up his shirt in the bathroom but I bet you all five dollars that he wanted Charles to see

He had a lot of free time to work out in prison. Think about it, Charles.
