Imagine Charles going up to Erik and boop-ing him on the nose.
Just in case you haven’t noticed yet: There’s a new really amazing show on The CW called Star-Crossed.
I’ve waited so long for this show to finally air, because I got addicted to it the first time I’ve heard about it.
The actors are doing a great job, there’s a certain chemistry between Roman and Emery, that I just can’t stop to watch it! Yeah, it’s about love, and about humans and aliens and the problems that are caused by another intelligent species on earth - but there’s just so much more.
It’s not only about love, but about friendship, trust, faith, and people. The show and especially the problems and the looks of the atrians teach us that we’re all the same - that it doesn’t matter how we look or where we’re born. We all have feelings, we have family and we love and trust and we have faith. Whether you’re an atrian or a human.
Besides that, I think the writers did an amazing job in creating the atrians, giving them special powers and background stories, creating birth marks and coming up with all those unique characters. I really want to know more about them, their powers and their history.
So since the ratings dropped last night, I want you to help! Just give it a try and watch this truly amazing show next monday. You won’t regret it.
Help us to increase the ratings and keep the show going and give them space to tell us more about their characters! We don’t want to have another great show to get cancelled after just a few episodes.
audrey1nd asked: Fox has the rights to both X-Men and Spiderman and Disney REALLY wants the rights back. And not sure if this is true or a rumor to explain, but in order to keep the rights they have to release a movie every x number of years with x number of weeks in theater. Thus all the Spiderman movies and X-men movies. But at least the most recent ones are good *cough* Spiderman 3 *cough* and they seem to be making good sequels. But you never know, they might be able to strike a deal.
WHY CAN’T WE ALL WORK TOGETHER TO MAKE AMAZING SUPERHERO MOVIES
turtletotem said: regarding 11, I had an idea once for “aliens abduct them and won’t let them go until they demonstrate earthling mating rituals” and it still makes me sad that the fic does not exist but i can’t write crack or porn much less both so it remains unwrote
—we should do this thing. I will if you will. Come on:
"Seriously," Charles said, and stared at the alien. "Seriously. No."
Erik also wanted to protest, because seriously no, they were not performing for anyone’s amusement; except that Erik also wanted to be offended, because wait, what, why wouldn’t Charles want to sleep with him? Not that he wanted to sleep with Charles. Not that he didn’t want to sleep with Charles. Charles was incredibly attractive, and kind, and utterly amazing. It was just—Charles. Who’d never so much as indicated any interest in sleeping with Erik.
Why didn’t Charles want to sleep with Erik? Charles slept with lots of people. What was wrong with Erik?
Well. Possibly a constantly threatening demeanor and a laser-precise focus on killing the man named Schmidt and the tiny fact of all the blood on Erik’s hands. But that was all necessary. Surely Charles could see that. And Erik would do a lot worse than that to protect Charles, because someone had to, because Charles was attractive and kind and amazing, and the world would never allow him to stay that way, and Erik would wade through actual Shakespearean oceans of blood to protect Charles, and Charles didn’t even want to think about sleeping with him even though they were both starving and it was only practical to get them food.
"You will demonstrate," the alien repeated, implacable, "and then you may have food."
"Erik," Charles said pathetically, "my telepathy doesn’t even work. My telepathy doesn’t work, Erik.”
"You’re the one who got on the damned spaceship," Erik said. "The damned plastic spaceship. It’s fascinating, you said. New life, you said. New civilizations. And then you got on the damned spaceship."
"Well," Charles said, "you didn’t have to come."
"Yes I did," Erik said, "I wasn’t going to let you get on a spaceship alone," and then they stared at each other for a while.
"A successful mating demonstration will earn you food," the alien reminded them helpfully, from the other side of the clear glowing door.
The X-Men are the most diversely powered superhuman group in fictional history, so it’s strange that their only spinoff is “White Guy With Knives, Twice.” He’s already come back from one unsuccessful movie that should have killed him off (Marvel may have confused superheroes with slasher movies). An angry man waving knives around isn’t a movie franchise, it’s your father carving Thanksgiving dinner.
If you want spinoff movies — and Marvel knows that every addition to the film franchise is at least $100 million, so they really do — the X-Men have more interesting characters than every soap opera in history fighting to the death inside a nuclear reactor. And the most moviegenic is Hisako “Armor” Ichiki. Armor is a badass girl with a robot suit made entirely of psychic special effects. There is no nerd money that combination of niches wouldn’t earn."
But Marvel doesn’t own the X-Men movie rights, so they can’t DO anything with mutants. Not that the point isn’t valid, but don’t blame Marvel Studios when they can’t even mention the word mutant in Avengers or S.H.I.E.L.D.
