Assumption 1: The characters are white. Even when they aren’t white in the text, they are white on the cover. I know, you don’t have to tell me about sales! I have fought many cover departments on this issue, and mostly lost. But please consider that “what sells” or “doesn’t sell” can be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If black kids, Hispanics, Indians both Eastern and Western, don’t buy fantasy — which they mostly don’t — could it be because they never see themselves on the cover? I have received letters that broke my heart, from adolescents of color in this country and in England, telling me that when they realized that Ged and the other Archipelagans in the Earthsea books are not white people, they felt included in the world of literary and movie fantasy for the first time. Worth thinking about?

There is a point...when you have to choose whether to be like everybody else the rest of your life, or to make a virtue of your peculiarities.

Their reaction to you being super interested in their passion( KH’s characters)
Agatha Harkness:
Tumblr media
Agatha found it cute how you kept trying to do magic, even if you were a simple (and beautiful) mortal. You would often ask her about it, and were always so eager to learn as much as you could (you were especially happy when she’d let you read some of her books, even if they were the simpler ones). She was so happy that you weren’t afraid of magic nor think she was evil or a monster. It was so hard to find someone who still believed in magic like you did. 
“Aggie!” you squealed “I did it!”
She laughed and turned to you. Sometimes, you’d come and show her one of those “tricks” humans called magic. You were so cute.
“Alright, buttercup, let’s see” she smiled. 
You smirked and closed your eyes. You lifted your fist to her face before you opened your eyes and slowly opened your hand. Agatha expected to find a card or a small gift, but a small butterfly flew around her. It was made of light and even if it was small, it was also the most beautiful thing she ever saw. 
You giggled when the butterfly landed on her nose before disappearing. She looked at you, shocked.
“I did it!” you squealed again and hugged her “I’m like you!”
Agatha hugged you and kissed your temple. No, you weren’t like her, you were something more. You were one of the few humans that still could control the most powerful magic of them all. The ordinary magic that flew around every living being but that just a few could see. Life itself.
Olivia Octavius:
Tumblr media
Olivia knew that science is usually a hard thing for most people. Yes, there were a lot of renowned scientists in the world, but it wasn’t something every child dreamed of being. Even in Alchemax itself, it was hard for her to find someone who shared her interests and passion. It was like everyone there just wanted the payment (which was good, to be fair). 
So, the fact that you seemed to be so interested in it, was a gift. You weren’t necessarily good at it, but you had fun and were so cute, never giving up. She loved to watch you playing around her lab (but she always kept the dangerous things out of your hands), discovering your own things. You were always so happy when you could show her something you discovered on your own, no matter if it was simple and she already knew it.
What made her fall completely in love with you tho, was that you also shared Doc Ock’s interests. You were as devilish as her, and so much naughtier. Your “plans” were often so much better than hers and New York had to deal with the fact that sometimes Doc Ock won over spider-man, even if no one knew how.
“What are you working on, love?” she asked. 
You smirked as you showed her your new design. “I think Doc Ock could use a companion” you said.
Ursula Gernsback:
Tumblr media
For Ursula, the fact that you were so interested in robots was both a blessing and a curse. You were always asking her questions about her and her programming and often asked for permission to look closer (which she gladly gave, in hopes to get more...intimate, but you never fell for it. You were just too innocent).
You’d spend hours playing with her buttons and cables (but nothing too important, you didn’t want to hurt her), and she didn’t mind sitting on a cold table for hours, as long as your hands were on her, she was fine with it. You were so tender with her, you touched her with so much love and veneration. As if she was the most precious thing ever.
But you were also oblivious af. No matter how much she tried to flirt with you, no matter how obvious she was, you just didn’t get it. Which means that it was a torture to have you so close and not being able to kiss you or hug you. 
“I like your eyes” you said while you were analyzing her again “They look so real and beautiful”
“Can you see the love of my life in them?” she tried again. 
You blinked and frowned in confusion “You’re so silly, Sulie” you giggled 
“Why? Can’t you see yourself reflecting on them?”
“Yes I can, but I don’t know what it has to do with-” 
Ursula smiled as you blushed and seemed to realize (finally!) what she meant. 
Carla Dunkler:
Tumblr media
Carla actually met you at the Spa. You were the new member of the staff and she was quickly dragged to you. You were just so charming and kind and cute and she was quickly head over heels for you. 
You seemed to be interested in her too and started to try to get closer to her. You usually asked her about her life, her hobbies, what she wanted to be when she was little, etc. Carla thought you’d lose interest in her after she told you she had a son (it had happened a lot of times, she was used to it by now), but you were actually even more interested now. She was surprised when you started to ask about Jackson too, his dreams and aspirations. 
She didn’t know what to do, because she wasn’t used to someone being actually interested in her like that. So you had to be the one who made the first move.
Eve Fletcher:
Tumblr media
Eve loved doing things with you, no matter what. She just loved to spend time with you and feel like you loved to be with her too. 
She was so grateful when you started to show interest in her literature class and asked her to show you her works. She was shy about it, but you were so reassuring and you quickly started to ask her for more. You didn’t pressure her, but you were so invested in it that Eve couldn’t help but find it extremely cute.
Jennifer Barkley:
Tumblr media
Jen was so proud when you started to show interest in her work. She loved what she did almost as much as she loved you, so it was like a Christmas gift, but better. Because she quickly took you under her wing (even if you didn’t actually want to work in it, just were interested), and she was able to have you near her 24/7, even when she was working. 
You seemed to be having so much fun and it made her so happy. People started to call you her apprentice, until she corrected them and everyone knew you were her partner. After a while, everyone got used to your presence, and would be pretty worried if you don’t show up with her at an event.
They all started to make bets on when Jen would actually propose to you.

I feel like in D2 Mal's group won the sword fight just because they had to be the good guys in the movie, I mean Uma and her people are PIRATES, don't tell me Mal and Evie could handle the sword better than them because I don't believe it.
