The other night, dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamt I held you in my arms
When I awoke, dear, I was mistaken
So I hung my head, and I cried
GOOD MORNING TO YOU TOO TUMBLR
Your name is Rose Lalonde, and you’re at the top of your game. You’ve acquired a decade’s worth of double bachelor’s degrees, a master’s at Princeton, and a doctorate that will garner you recognition in the medical field (as your thirteen year-old talents mandated). Your income is steady and your efforts have not gone unnoticed. You have everything you could’ve possibly wanted and more.
You can’t shake the feeling that something has gone horribly, horribly wrong.
It’s about fucking mutants stop trying to making this meaningful.
Media—comics, film, literature, video games—exist for us to find our own meaning and value in it. Especially mutants, which are a super powerful and accessible metaphor for nearly anyone who has ever felt maligned for reasons beyond their control. Shut up.
I’m sorry who are you?
I’m the person who found this scene meaningful, made this gifset and now has to see annoying reblog comments like yours pop up on my dashboard.
Are you fucking kidding me. The X-men comics were literally a metaphor for racism and xenophobia. This is meaningful because it is meant to be meaningful.
Fucking start shit with me if you got a problem with Nightcrawler or Storm.

::Edit:: I’m so incredibly grateful to everyone who liked this picture! I was completely floored when I checked my tumblr this morning and saw the crazy amount of notes in my inbox! If you like the picture enough to want a print or a laptop skin, I have them available here http://society6.com/doodlelust/Serenade-jwa_Print
Thanks guys! <3
A French Pirate serenades a Caribbean merman.
This was a lot of fun and I have to say I’m quite pleased with the result. It’s a digital color but one of the better ones I’ve done. Also doing a sparkly merman as opposed to a sparkly mermaid was a fun change up.
