Jubilee loved fashion. Her closet was full to the brim with a multitude of bright colours and she made good use of every item in there. Paired with her trademark yellow jacket and fluorescent jewellery, she always seemed to hit the mark.
So when you met her in the hall outside her room, you were nervous what her reaction would be to your new outfit. You were no stranger to her innocent but funny comments about other people’s fashion choices around the mansion, and she had pulled you quickly into her room to restyle your hair in the morning a few times by now. Any changes to your wardrobe happened after her approval was given - granted she liked everything you had bought so far - but the nerves of surprising her by wearing something new didn’t go unsettled.
Leaning against the wall with your hands behind your back, her door clicked open to the left of you. As soon as she saw you, she stopped moving, eyes a little wide and her mouth open in shock. You pushed off the wall and held your arms out to the side to show off your new outfit: a dark green and hot pink shell suit.
You span around slowly to show her the full look, and when you faced her again, a large smile filled her face. She jumped up excitedly with a squeal and darted to hold your shoulders out at arms length, getting a proper look and feel of the jacket you wore.
After scanning your body, she met your eyes again, hers glistening with glee. “I love it!” She exclaimed, her smile reaching all the way to her ears as she shook your shoulders a little. Your grin matched hers, beyond relieved that she enjoyed your new venture into clothes without her help.
“Even your hair matches! You look so great! I can’t believe someone around here looks so stylish without my advice.” You furrowed your brows in mock offense but giggled at her amazement, knowing she was so blown away by your surprise that the words just tumbled out of her mouth.
“Although,” she linked her arm around yours and started traipsing down the hall with you, on the way to your first class of the day, “those new earrings I got last week would go perfect with this. Would really take it from great to amazing.” She wiggled her eyebrows at you and nudged the arm she had her hands wrapped around.
“For the last time, Jube, I am not getting my ears pierced so my outfit looks better!” You raised your voice in humour. The whole time you waited for her to get ready that morning, you wondered how long it would take for her to add an improvement to your shell suit, and to be far to your friend, it had taken longer than you thought.
Yesterday was Chris Claremont’s birthday, and, as arguably the most important Marvel writer of the Bronze Age, we want to celebrate him! Here are some of his best known creations by some of the comics’ greats! (also some Wolverine, arguably the character he’s most associated with!)
Logan: You better buckle down and do your work or you’re end up at McDonalds.
Jubilee: We are going to McDonalds if I don’t do my work!
Happy Thanksgiving! Hope everyone who’s celebrating is doing so safely today!
