Because my last take on Mystique's training Todd was so violent and dark and ultimately depressing, here's a more positive take on it. Avec half-arsed shading job, badly drawn boxes and likely as all wildly out-of-character behaviour! :D

Sorry about my shodtacular handwriting. Here's what it says in case you can not decipher it;

MYSTIQUE: Well, Toad. It would appear you have completed your training.

TODD: Yes Ma'am!

MYSTIQUE: Now, understand that your performance during our last mission was, shall we say, less that satisfactory. Some significant improvement is called for. And that means no more flirting with Summers, for a start.
TODD: Eh heh, yeh. Sorry about that, won't happen again! :D

MYSTIQUE: So tell me! Who's ready for some highly dangerous work activity you can not possibly sue for?
TODD: Aw man, I am SO ready! I'm your toad, bosslady!

MYSTIQUE: Yeeeesss . . . And who is going to do brilliantly?
TODD: ME, yo!

MYSTIQUE: And who is going to royally arse it up?
TODD: Piet- Someone Else!

MYSTIQUE: Very well then. Let us PROCEED . . .

BOTH: Hut! Hut! Hut!

Hahaha I love Toad's enthusiastic posturing. "<strike>;Pietro!</strike> Someone else!" (kick!) made me lol. Hardly anyone I know uses the phrase "arse it up", but I wish it would catch on. Very hilariously drawn. ^_^

.... you realize you make little to no sense, right? Even accounting for the language barrier, you're still using more emoticons than words o_O

OH, this is beautiful. xD Made my absolute DAY.
I love the sketchiness! Even not cleaned up, it's gorgeous and ye've got Todd's expressions just DOWN! The third-from-top-left panel's my favorite, HAR.

SO MUCH WIN it isn't even slightly amusing, although this certainly be. <3

The dark drooling possessed face kills me! As sketchy as this is these are some wicked expressive face shots. Todd's hyperness, so beautiful.

*just friggin' dying over here* AHAHAHA XD this made me so damned happy. Loved Todd's exuberance in this one. And how he almost says Pietro. <3 so much love to you. And the stick figures. Holy shit. You are genius.

D: I cant picture toad firsting with Scott. But I would like to! XD
princefala's avatar
Heh, it was mostly a reference to the first episode in which Todd wanted to get close to Scott, mostly-if-not-entirely because he was a fellow mutant in school. A suggestion to "do lunch" was put forth.

Mind you, I was joking in this context. But if Mystique had been there for that little exchange, she would have probably taken it to mean as much :P

. . . And hey, she never said anything about no more flirting with her son, now did she? ;P
Hybrid-Connection's avatar
XDDD
Oh yeah! Good reference. *laugh* I haven't seen x-men in a looong time D: its a pity, otherwise I probably wouldn't have asked.
Poor Mistique, I doubt she'll be able to get close enough to Kurt to notice the chemistry between him and Todd
