new head canon because of Magneto’s prison outfit in the Days Of Future Past trailer: Charles always finds where the Government has imprisoned Erik by following a trail of velcro orders.
do you think to avoid the problem of nails in furniture they ordered a bunch of those plastic hand chairs and bean bags?
what am i talking about of course they did.
i keep getting distracted by how perfectly groomed/clean cut he is. i wonder how they shave him/let him shave.
Poor Erik, they gave him a plastic Flowbee and some Nair.
Any XMFC’ers want to have a smallish impromptu XMFC Does MST thing tomorrow or Sunday? It’s been one of those weeks and it would be great just to hang out and watch a guy and a robot making fun of bad movies.
(For new people: XMFC Does MST is a periodic thing we do were we set up a TogetherTube room and watch episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Sometimes we watch other things, like the 90s X-Men cartoons and campy movies. And the entire time we talk and quote riffs at each other and try to come up with XMFC AUs based on whatever we’re watching. It’s lots of fun!)
There’s been this one idea I’ve had for a while that I would love to turn into fic, but don’t really have a plot for. Basically, it’s a role reversal type AU thing where Erik is in some sort of accident and needs a wheelchair afterward, and he’s really angry and bitter and basically only sticking around for his mom’s sake at this point. And it’s a powered AU and one of the things he’s mad about is that when he had all his surgeries and they put all that hardware into his back, no one asked him if he might not prefer being able to actually feel it with his powers, and anyway, all that stuff is made out of some sort of synthetic instead of metal like he would have wanted if anyone had asked him, and it really pisses him off. And basically everything really pisses him off. And tbh I’m not really sure how this resolves, or what else is going on, or what’s going on with Charles, or anything else, but.
This sounds amazing.
