ugly ugly sketch of tommy that i will never finish and this is like my third time on sai paint pls forgive me it’s been months
I saw a post about tattoo artists on my dash and was suddenly motivated to draw Tommy after the update of Colours Beneath His Skin (Which is flawless and you should read it)
There’s probably some way to split this up so you can view it properly but uh I don’t know how to do that so I guess you’ll have to click through :V
One day, we will be able to look back on Children’s Crusade and laugh. That is my personal belief.
speed - /spēd/ - nounthe state of moving quickly or the capacity for rapid motion
I see a lot of headcanons and fanwork where Tommy and Pietro are close and bond and everything (at worst, Tommy’s just kind of annoying), and don’t get me wrong, it’s really cute, but…
Pietro has a pile of daddy issues. He seems to consider Magneto unforgivable.
Tommy admires and looks up to Magneto.
Who has been terrible to Pietro his whole life, but seems honestly dedicated to doing things right with his grandsons, and has referred to Tommy as his favorite. (In front of Billy, so great work on the grandparenting skills so far, A+ for Magneto.)
Basically the only reason Magneto has been interested in Pietro in the past is for his abilities and how they can help the mutant cause, and Tommy has the same power, but better.
I’m not saying they can’t get past that and be adorable, especially since Wanda wants them to get along, and that’s good enough for me to assume Pietro will do his absolute best, I’m just saying I see no way it’s not incredibly complicated for Pietro and I would love to see some of that too.
More tommykate family! Headcanon they have twin girls named Cassie and Maggie *u*
marvel comics meme - 7/10 characters | Tommy Shepherd (Speed)"I have to say, I’m a little offended you didn’t kidnap both of us. After all, you and I have so much in common, Uncle Pete. The super-speed, the brooding bad-boy thing, the weird white-headed-ness… though I suppose it must be a blow to the old ego that there’s a version of you out there that’s younger, better looking… and faster.”
I guees we don’t need a headcanon for Tommy vs Pietro anymore. Or maybe…?
