Been thinking abt the Addams kids slowly growing up so here are some Thoughts.
-Pugsley grows a mullet at around age 16. Wednesday very nearly shaves it off in his sleep several times.
-Once they're old enough to drive, both kids travel around town on a loud black motorcycle. People tend to think it's Pugsley's, but it belongs to Wednesday and she's kind enough to let him sit on the back.
-Pugsley did have a motorcycle of his own at one point, but he purposefully crashed it into several police cars. It's beyond broken now and his license is suspended but it was worth it.
-Upon realizing she's a lesbian, Wednesday accumulates so many cool goth girlfriends that the family cannot keep track. She soon has a polycule of like six different girls who all adore her. They do seances together.
-After several months of mutual flirting without either girl making a move, Wednesday asks her soon-to-be first girlfriend out on a coffee date. The girl is already drinking a soda, so she blushes and declines politely. Wednesday informs her that an activated charcoal latte would be a wonderful antidote for the poison she planted in her soda, so they might as well go on the date before it kills her in thirty minutes. Since Wednesday is definitely her type, the girl finds this incredibly romantic. They went on the date, flushed out the poison, and have now been happily together for a full year.
-Pugsley realizes he is also gay (which is when Wednesday forgives him for the mullet) and has one very loving punk anarchist boyfriend.
-To impress said boyfriend, Pugsley once claimed to be President of ANTIFA. This lie evolved into him literally becoming an antifascist revolutionary as a teen who threw explosives into the houses of white supremacists. The whole family was very proud, as was his boyfriend.
-Pubert realizes they are nonbinary at around age nine and decides to change their name and pronouns. They introduce the family to the concept of a deadname, and everyone is incredibly excited to have a celebratory funeral slash gender reveal party in which they drop their birth certificate into an open grave full of black smoke bombs. (Not a boy, not a girl, it's an Addams!)
-Once the funeral is over, Pubert goes by Pulsatilla. The name was inspired by pulsatilla vulgaris, a poisonus purple flower that Morticia grows in her garden. Wednesday and Pugsley, though now college aged, attended the funeral and also made time to play Beheading of Marie Antoinette with them afterwards. It's now their favorite game because they get to commit treason and wear a frilly dress.

I think one thing that a lot of Addams Family fans forget is that for the family, goth wasn’t about being gloomy and sad or bitter and cynical at all. Morticia was always gazing out at rainy days and declaring, “how beautiful a day it is!” or saying that “black is so much more cheerful!” because they found joy in their dark aesthetic. Wednesday was curious and sharp-minded and very clearly exercised and expressed her personal sense of power and self through things like her interest in weaponry and true crime - in the original series and comics, she was always dancing and playing with her brother. Edgy Wednesday didn’t happen until the 90s reboot, and well, it was the 90s. Gloomy grunge and artful sadness were in at the time. And let’s not even talk about Gomez, who was so full of life and love for his family that he’d often break into song or dip Morticia in the kitchen for an old-fashioned kiss. The Addams worked so well because they were healthy, happy, loving and goth. They were a perfect example of indulging in an aesthetic without letting it become toxic or consuming their lives.

oh yeah so I started Hogwarts Mystery and when it came time to pick a name I tried to put in my actual name, but apparently they didn’t recognize my first name even tho it’s a normal name?
so, as a joke, I tried “Wednesday Addams”, who is my favorite character of all time. I didn’t think it would work, since my name didn’t, but...
so yeah Wednesday’s going to Hogwarts now
Pugsley what the fuck did you do
