#fandom: young avengers
delusionland · 7 days ago
and teddy’s just like, ‘but i’m such a fan of his work! he’s so cool! i just think he’s the bee’s knees, billy! what i offend him and he DROWNS MY SPACESHIP(S) AND DOESN’T SIGN MY AUTOGRAPH BOOK?’
teddy is not the husband you go to when you want to look cool. he legally can’t even say ‘fuck’ or ‘goddamn’. he says ‘frick’ and he canonically says ‘goshdarn.’ he’s canoncially the goodest boy in the universe and he is really bad at lying and has a very low opinion of himself despite being a space emperor / king that has united two warring people by virtue of being reallly? nice?
he’s the kind of husband that impresses every member of your family with his kindness and consideration and tries. devestatingly hard to do so. but in a cool-tempered way where externally it looks like he is putting low effort into things but actually he is trying really hard to do anything at all but also not panicking about it, more like, swinging wildly from even to end like ‘okay! this is happening now! okay! sure! lets go! maximum effort!’
i feel like teddy is the kind of person that... when nothing is happening... he just kind of. turns off and gets depressed and just thinks about how miserable he is. so when things happen! it’s like! exciting! yes! go-time! he doesn’t panic, tho sometimes he gets nervous and dumfounded, bc when he’s taking care of other people he feels good and necessary & whole. when he’s NOT taking care of someone, not taking care of the universe---he feels useless and bad.
he’s one of those anxious people who will go ‘i can’t do this for me. but i can do it FOR YOU no problem.’ but instead of reacting to anxiety with fear, he just bzzt teddy no longer working going to hide in his room and play switch. just shuts down. and that’s why it’s easy for him to believe that billy might have accidentally created him. he doesn’t know who he is when he’s not taking care of billy and the young avengers? he doesn’t feel whole without him? and when he’s not there, not there to be ‘on’ for... teddy just kind of crumbles and thinks about nothing except how much he sucks and how boring he is without billy & the young avengers.
(this is not to say teddy ISN’T boring. he kind of is. his favorite character in game of thrones in 2013 was TYRION. like. he is a very generic nice-boy nerd that likes animal crossing and reading gen fanfic and his favorite food is pizza and he very likely is a product of tumblr ‘frick frack’ and ‘pizza rolls not gender roles’ and ‘pupper’ culture. he’s not going out of his way to be interested in anything deeper or even more thoroughly than that. which is not to say YOU’RE boring if you’re into any of those things, just that. you know. he maintains a certain degree of mainstream nerd that charm that doesn’t get into any specific niche or area of research that would make him a particularly interesting person to talk to about anything, which is another one of his problems---teddy altman plays the therapist, or he lets many conversations die after bad lies, resulting in loneliness.)
teddy LIKES working hard and being polite and taking care of people and impressing moms aunts grandmoms and little kids. teddy LIKES being the voice of reason, the common sense, the cool head in the face of danger, the springboard to jump ideas off of---but never the one with the ideas. it’s when he’s NOT doing those things or being those things that he gets anxious and in his own head.
teddy altman can do ANYTHING. literally shapeshift into ANYTHING. be anyone or anything u need him to be. as long as its for someone else.

teddy altman is a trans man but also krees and skrulls dont care about gender so he was always going to be the ‘lost prince’ as the only royal heir. in the actually kree / skrull languages the term for prince / king / emperor are all non-binary and long and mean ‘this heir has the birthright / bloodright to rule and should be treated with the most respect possible’ but when using a universal translator---english is an explicitly gendered language and the universal translator has always chosen to translate kree / skrull traditions in an explicitly arthurian / british way bc that’s the closest equivalent that these imperialist aliens have. if you told them about king arthur or human gender tho or whatever theyd just be like ‘what the fuck are you talking about’ lmfao
billy has tried very hard to talk about how ‘wizard’ and ‘sorcerer’ are actually offensive terms to humans, especially witches like himself---but they don’t? understand? that’s the closest equivalent without a long speech about magical fighting protector rights, u know?
the pains of language and cross cultural exchange.
billy’s the non-binary monarch / prince-consort is like ‘teddy, this is WORSE than when i took FRENCH.’ and teddy’s just like, ‘i don’t know. i obviously don’t agree with ALL of my people’s culture.... but it’s kind of a Gender to be destined to be King? and the title prince-consort is kinda.... [eyes]' billy ‘well when u put it like that.... [eyes]’

"i've got you." david and tommy
When you have all the knowledge of everyone you’ve ever met---there’s always a lot on your mind. And X-Men bleed & are bloodied more than your average superhero. He can picture, with eyes wide open---each and every time the mainline heroes saw death. And he can remember his own experiences with it, the feeling of loss the first time---when the buses of children then powerless left, and would not return. He knows the scent and the taste of burnt human flesh---He’s experienced so many lifetimes outside his own that he would rather not have, in some cases. (Fuck Sabretooth, and though he respects her now---fuck Emma Frost’s memories.)
But Prodigy, himself, has always specialized in non-lethal combat. And this is different, in the ways that it makes him the same as his various teachers.
He’s always wanted----always wanted to experience what he learned from himself and make the knowledge real, know that it was his and that it belonged to him in muscle & memory & brain elasticity stretched to full capacity, that he wasn’t cheating, that he was real, that he mattered just as much as what he absorbed from others, he wanted to experience & explain & understand and yet-----
He never wanted this.
David draws his knees to his chest in the tub. He hides himself, bloody arms covering bloody legs. He can’t properly see Tommy without his glasses on---but it’s for the best. Tears would probably blur his vision anyway, if he was forced to face him. Tommy can be so sweet sometimes, but David never expected him to be this gentle.
If he asked Tommy to hold him right now---would he? Maybe after he’s clean. He wants to bury himself in the other boy like a grave, six feet deep, skin hungry as he’s ever been.
“Thank you,” he mumbles, struggling to catch his breath even as he says it. His teeth chatter. He’s never been warmer than he has under Tommy’s hands and the watercloth.

“Being King of Space? It’s great! I mean, well... In a lot of ways it’s different than I ever expected to be. And I didn’t really expect much. It’s a lot of responsibility, but the responsibility is kind of... repetitive. I spend a lot of time telling people they can’t kill each other. Most of my time is spent doing that, actually. And most of the Krees and the Skrulls... really, really want to kill each other, so it’s like. It’s harder than you would think it would be? But it’s fine. Mostly. I’m doing a pretty good job, I think.”
“How are you doing?”

@fromscarlet ikea starters!
“You ever think about living in an Ikea? I would live in an Ikea. The rooms may be small, but they’re not any smaller than the dorms were at Xavier’s. And I wouldn’t have to share them with Josh.”

@fromscarlet [ tommy & david ]
“You know. I don’t think we talk enough about you being a mutant.” The grandson of the most infamous (coolest) mutant (besides Dani & Lorna & Ororo), no less. “You never got to go to any of the five hundred new schools for it.” 
“I feel like... you’re missing out on a larger sense of the community. There are a lot of people like us out there.” People with similar trauma to Tommy’s. People who have been experimented on, and tortured. People who don’t want to talk about it---but could still... Be nice for Tommy to have around. To process things. Feel more normal, maybe. Feel like he COULD talk about it.

teddy altman is... an infinitely just-shy of full tube of toothpaste.
you can squeeze him in any direction, any pattern, and he will pour out a little part of himself for you in whatever shape you need. but he can always pull it back, re-shape and reform himself within the tube. even if it does take. a lot of effort to get back to where he was sometimes.
but his core is still... infinitely shaped by the shell that he’s made for himself. he can be anything he wants to be---and he chooses to be what other people need, other people want. he’s squishy & soft, defined by adaptability & kindness.
he has a strong sense of unreality. he’s gullible to a fault bc he’s so go-with-the-flow. oftentimes he doesn’t know what to do with himself when he’s alone, and since his mother died----he’s been alone a lot, and is prone to melancholy that he hides when other people are around.
he wants to be what other people want him to be---but he doesn’t always understand HOW. but he is defined by his ability to show up for other people and provide kindness and options to them. he will never leave you out to dry. he provides for people, he shapes himself and the world as much as he can for them.
he doesn’t always know how to ask for things for himself. he would rather be what other people want him to be than ask them for things. this is part of the reason why billy is so important to him---billy can literally bring his wishes into existence and he does with some frequency. billy is the part of him that wants things and wants them NOW, that can be selfish, that causes him to do extraordinarily silly things and be fruitlessly impulsive & fun outside of his own melancholy and sense of politeness. assigned service top at birth problems: when ur bf is ur only sense of fun besides the enjoyment u get playing nintendo games
idk. he’s toothpaste. a clean nice polite trans boy who made his own broad shoulders out of the infinitely squishy matter in his heart.

OPEN STARTER: teddy altman
“They’re re-releasing the entire Lord of The Rings trilogy in IMAX 3-D---while I’m in space?! That’s just not fair.” Teddy half-realizes as King he could probably get somebody to hook up, like, a giant alien IMAX screen that could probably also be rigged to play Lord of The Rings, (and probably The Hobbit series as well, even though Billy and Teddy have agreed to never speak of them again past the occasional guilty pleasure fanfic rec). But it’s not the same as an 24hour marathon in the theater with Billy & the friends they manage to force to join them. Even when they pretend to complain the whole time. Actually, ESPECIALLY when they pretend to complain the whole time, because then it’s all the more satisfying when they start to love the movie, and B&T get to experience the tears almost for the first time again through their best friend’s eyes---
Plus, in general, it’s just like. Really awkward and stressful asking people for things, especially petty human Earth nerd things. He’s pretty sure everybody in space already hates him, like, a lot.

Kamala isn't a member of the Young Avengers. Her team is the Champions.
Yeah I know. The MCU isn’t exactly known for following the comics perfectly. I’m just assuming that her introduction at the same time as the other Young Avengers characters means that the MCU is adding her to the lineup. Not to mention there has been past crossover between the Champions lineup and the Young Avengers (Patriot & Prodigy have appeared on both teams).
Also, I find your desire to nitpick people who are just getting excited for something both irritating and gatekeep-y in nature. If you are truly bothered enough by something that negligible to send in an ask- maybe think twice about what you’re actually achieving by doing so. It comes off as incredibly rude.

LMAO Not the homophobic MCU fanboys moving to DC after realizing some of the characters are queer
First of all, we don’t want you. Get out.
Second of all, you are in for a rude awakening

WandaVision Villian
I 100% think Pietro and TyLeR (read my last post lmao) have an inside-outside job going on. I think that's why pietro is so sus and why he looks different. Also that explains the whole "demon spawn" line. Because in the comics Tommy and Billy are pieces of Mephisto's soul. I'm convinced that either Pietro or Hayward are the villian. Also remember, Marvel literally does everything for a reason. What are your thoughts? Who do you think is the villian?
