you'll see just how kawaii i am (✖‿✖)
ღ Bobbi Morse // Mockingbird
I spent three years of my life with your kind. Imprisoned. Beaten. On the run. You can never trick me again, no matter whose face you have. I’ll kill you every time.
ღ Dani Moonstar
Logan wants to defend the children. Cyclops wants to defend the species. Both of those views require a separation from the real world. The actual world. I believe in the struggle for mutant rights, but I also believe that part of that fight is interacting with the world so you can change it. You can’t just sequester yourself from the outside world until it’s the way you want it to be. You have to go out there and be a part of it.
ღ Remy LeBeau // Gambit
Hasn’t been your night, eh, chère? Or maybe it has— considering how often I am here to rescue you.
ღ Natasha Romanova // Black Widow
It’s not the length of a life that matters…just the depth of it. The chances we take. The paths we choose. How we go on after our hearts break. Hearts always break. And so we bend with our hearts. And we sway. But in the end…what matters is that we loved…and lived.
ღ Gertrude Yorkes
Most people in life don’t have great power, and the few that do are almost never responsible with it. The people who have the greatest responsibility are the kids with no power because we’re the ones who have to keep everybody else in check.
ღ Priscilla Kitaen // Voodoo
What I did…I had to do. Isn’t that what a soldier does in a war? Survives…to fight another day? I’m not one of them…but I can be any one of them. And they never expect what I truly am.
ღ David Zavimbe // Batwing
I let him live. But he won’t live well. I will not take a life. Despite how monstrous they are or how much agony they might cause…I will not honor them in blood. But they will be punished.
ღ Madeline Berry & Brandon Sharpe
You’re kinda my best friend here.
ღ Laura Kinney & Remy LeBeau
— You asked why I came lookin’ for you. It wasn’t for Storm. Not the X-Men, either. It was for this. To be here for you.
— Why? You hardly know me.
— You hardly knew Alice.
— I knew enough.
— My point, exactly.
there’s a part of me that’s always been joined with you, even when we couldn’t touch. and when we could—mah lord, remy, ah felt like ah could never get enough of you even if ah melted into you like snow on wet grass. like every inch of me needed to touch every inch of you.
ღ Noriko Ashida // Surge
This has to end. We have to end it. Forty-seven of us are dead. The X-Men can’t save us. The O*N*E and their sentinels are a sick joke. They’ll probably be coming after us next. And the Avengers don’t care. It’s up to us. The X-Men are half a world away. We can’t wait for them. So we’ll take this thing down.
ღ Ruth Aldine // Blindfold
But the sun goes out. The world goes out. Nobody hears me. And it’s not hiding anymore. I see everything now. Yes. And if I could stop this thing with every last drop of my heart’s blood. I would willingly bleed.
ღ Humberto Lopez // Reptil
But I’m not sure it matters why you do something. The important thing is that you do it. I’ve been wasting my power. Talking about being a hero, finding my parents, being a leader…all these grand plans. And what have I actually done?
ღ Megan Gwynn // Pixie
I’m going to cry. I’m going to burst. I’m going to throw up. No, I’m not. I’m an X-Man. I’m an X-Man I’m an X-Man I’m an X-Man!!! So I’m gonna fly!
ღ Angelica Jones // Firestar
Everyone’s got a role for me… Team leader. Cancer survivor. Cover story. Mutant. And I am all those things. I’m all those things and then some. But what about how I define myself? What I want my life to be about? And allowing myself the chance to succeed or fail at it? Maybe I should just…throw all that away so other people can slap their labels on me. What do you think?
