Did something I haven't done in a long time, drew this page without having any reference. I think it sort of shows in panel 1 and 4 especially, but c'est la vie. I'd rather post the page and move on to more exciting pages than rework and rework and rework a page where... not much is really happening :B


Out of curriousity-- waaaaaaaaay back when I started this comic, I decided to use comic sans as the type face because in my head "comic page" and "comic sans" made sence for one another. This was clearly before any and all of my typography classes. I'm not sure if I would make the same choice, if I were starting today, though honestly, the comic sans doesn't BOTHER me in EE-- but that may just be because I'm used to it. What do folks think? Does it look corny, should I try a different font? Or did you never even notice until I said something :B

Finally a story where the Wanda/Rogue BFFs4LIFE trope has been avoided, or at least doesn't occur immediately. And the font is great, I like it.

Not a big fan of Comic Sans myself, but I think you're better off keeping it in this case! For the sake of consistency, anyway. Also I'm going to be honest with myself, Evo *is* a pretty cheesy medium, so it fits...! haha :)

Seconding anyone who says that Rogue and Wanda getting along is neat, but arguing like this would be 500 times more interesting, I think.

PS, jealous tbh that this is what your "no reference" look, looks like! It's really good!

Wanda: shut up, please....shut up. You are not starving to death at the x-men mansion and you live with adults who care about your wellbeing unlike your father who left you with a crazy blue lady who is rarely there.

Rogue: I have never seen someone that emo. I understand its because of your powers and everything, but suck it up. You are stuck with it for the rest of your life. It is like a skin color, you can't change it so buck up and try to make the best of life, OK!?

Has a nerve been struck? O.o

Your analysis of Wanda, at least, is quite limited. I feel like you're lashing out due to your own shipping proclivities. "Grr! She was mean to Todd, so she's just a stupid bitch!"

Sorry for the late reply but I did not mention Todd in my previous statement. I do like Todd but, I am more of a Kurt fan than anything.If you are going by what my favorites state,I do admit I like a certain Kodd pairing, but it has been a while since I've looked at them. My problem with Wanda is that she is not questioning anything about their new situation. This comic series takes place after she is brainwashed,right? If I remember correctly, wasn't she also brainwashed into thinking the x-men were her enemy by default because they fought her father. If so why would she live with them...ever? I also have a question as to why professor Xavier and the other x-men are not wondering why she doesn't hate her father anymore or why hasn't professor Xavier not sensed her mind has been tampered with from the get go. I would tell her immediately for fear that when the brainwashing wears off-and it will wear off-she would kill me for not saying anything. Plus if the x-men are her father enemy why didn't they just leave them to starve, I know professor xavier would never do that, but does she?

O.O wow the force of nerd went hard on this comment, huh?

Rogue: shiji ikari-the female version

Just because I haven't shown her not questioning it doesn't mean she hasn't been. I can't show every character's every thought at all times-- in addition to the fact that I'm just not a good writer :B I try to reveal things in a fun and exciting way, but occasionally it's just oddly paced and jarring. So there's that.

Why would she live with the X-men... Because Wanda is, at this point in her life, a ship without a rudder. After she was brainwashed, Wanda became the sort of character who NEEDS direction. She needs someone in her life to give her orders, to tell her what to do. This is part of her brainwashing. She is uncomfortable making her own decisions. Her default is, or course, to listen to her father. Given his absence, she will next turn to her brother. Her brother has told her that they have to stay at the X-mansion, for several reasons I won't get into here because ZOMG COMIC PLOT ;). Suffice to say she doesn't LIKE this, but she trusts Pietro (sort of) and she does. What she's told.

As to the others wondering why she doesn't hate her father any more, that goes back, again, to the not being able to show everyone's thoughts- or even everyone's casual conversations!- on every topic. I admit, I have several scenes I've wanted to do that address this very point, but finding a way to put them in that's at least somewhat natural is easier said than done. I can assure you, though, it is a topic that has been woven into the plot for the future ^_~

Why hasn't Professor Xavier not sensed her mind tempering? Who says he hasn't? Xavier's a dick. And I love him for it, but let's not mince words here-- he's not above fucking around sneakily to get what he wants. Wanda kicking the brainwashing while living at his house is NOT in his best interests. He's got his own way of dealing with this, and it's much more of a surgeons scalpel than a construction worker's sledge hammer. Maybe you'd be worry about the brain washing wearing off, but clearly, he's got this shit well under control. All the pies. All the fingers.

As to Wanda wondering why they weren't left to starve (a point of clarification: They weren't starving. They were freezing. Food was never the issue, but for all points it's essentially the same), no, she doesn't understand their motives any further than "They're trying to convert us." That's why she thinks they've been invited, and really, she's not THAT far off the mark. She doesn't LIKE that Pietro is having them stay there, but until she's told otherwise, she'll stay put.

Your initial assumptions that the adults at the X-mansion care about her well being are broad and shallow. I'm sure Ororo genuinely cares, and Hank as well. Logan cares as much as he cares about anything (not much), and Xavier has his own motives that masquerade as caring but run much deeper and to his own best interests. You assume that her father DOESN'T care about her well being, which is just... wrong. On every front. You assume he knows that Mystique is gone. People (in comic and out) assumes Mystique IS gone. There are a lot of assumptions.

This makes me feel like I need to do a better job actually showing some of my under-the-surface plotting. I'm never really sure how much is TOO much to show. I want to keep enough tension and interest to keep it interesting to read, but... I don't want people's motives to appear unfounded.

I have much to consider >.9

Well, yes I guess he might not know mystique is gone, but the idea of magneto not caring still stands. Father who doesn't check on children unless he wants something-doesn't care-AT ALL. If you don't believe me just look the cartoon Motorcity. the tyrant of the cartoon is always checking-well as much as he can -on his daughter even though he is techinally running what many people think is the whole world and never asks for anything except for her to be careful.

Professor Xavier: I think you are talking about the movies. In the cartoon,he was a caring individual who wasn't a mastermind playing everyone as puppets as in the movie.

yes I understand I assume much about this comic, but I guess that is what makes good, huh? If people are invested and leave long comments like this doesn't that it is good? I just think something could be better explain-but I won't complain too much.

I said he was a caring father, not that he was a GOOD father. Everything he does, he does for the sake of his children. If that means he has to be away from them for long stretches at a time, then that's what he'll do, but so help him, he is going to create a world where they can live the lives they deserve.

Are we talking about the same Professor Xavier here? The Xavier who consistently tells people he doesn't or won't use his powers on others, yet time and time again does exactly that, ESPECIALLY in season one? Or the one who locks up a family member when they become too uncontrollable-- something that when Magneto does it, it's unthinkably horrible and "uncaring"? How about when he doesn't tell his students that their principal is actually the mutant Mystique? Or when he goes TO Mystique, to rub painful memories in her face-- memories he wouldn't have access to unless he was USING HIS POWERS WITHOUT PERMISSION (see statement one)? How about how he creates a "test" for Toad to have to get into the X-mansion, but everyone else, they get in for free! His discrimination against the brotherhood in GENERAL is just incredible dickishness. Oh, yeah, he's a stand up guy, that one!

I shall endeavor to explain more in the future ^_~

Ah, I've been bested. Good Show milady.;) I still feel,however, that professor Xavier still beat Magneto just smidge in the parenting department with the whole causing a mental breakdown in his daughter and getting a psychic to half clean-up his mess. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Professor Xavier does bend the rules to protect his wards. Granted, the same could be said for Magneto, but I feel his ideal of protection would most likely get his charges killed with his version. No, I do not believe that putting a love one in the care of a institution is bad, but he could have did it in a better and a better hospital(Magento's loaded isn't he?)

Well that was good debate. Let's do it again sometime, huh?

Honestly, compared to all the fanart and fanfiction that shows these two getting on famously, I think this dynamic is much more in line with the characters.
People with the traits in common that Wanda and Rogue have generally end up irritating the hell out of each other. I wouldn't be surprised if this encounter ended up getting ugly real fast. Hopefully Tabby can direct their hostility elsewhere (a notable skill of hers. Too bad it's usually toward herself).

I agree. I don't particularly mind them getting along, but I find it (a) Less interesting to read about, and (b) usually too sudden. They CAN get along, sure, but I don't think it'd be an instantaneous thing. I think they'd have to be introduced to each other gradually, so they could learn to tolerate one another first. What's it called-- character development. Stuff like that.

Thankfully, no one here has seven evil exes, so any ball-kicking action shouldn't be that bad :B
