It's a question I've been asking myself for a couple of months now.
Marvel's Inhumans movie is still years away and I'm already tired of them...

I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that out of the groups of superheroes that Marvel has to offer, the Inhumans are probably the least well-known ones. Compared to the Avengers, Fantastic Four, the Defenders, the X-Men. All the big names that get adaptations, I've heard about or know the heroes that belong to the team. Never have I ever heard the word Inhuman before it appeared on the MCU slate.

So Marvel's cartoons are trying to include/introduce them, maybe to... smooth things over, get fans excited about them before they're going to join the MCU? After all, "Avengers Assemble" is basically an MCU-friendly reboot of "Earth's Mightiest Heroes" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" literally takes place after the MCU movie, so the current cartoons do cater toward the MCU fans. And, I gotta admit, the first time I was introduced to them, they seemed interesting, but mainly so because they're new.

They had multiple appearances in "Avengers Assemble", "Ultimate Spider-Man" and "Guardians of the Galaxy" at this point and I am already tired of them, because they bring absolutely nothing new to the table. I mean, they have vastly different powers and different origins from anything I've seen so far, but every time they appear, it's a repetition of the last time I saw them. They're the flattest, least enjoyable and least cheer-worthy group of superheroes I have ever encountered.

There don't seem to be any passion - not between the characters like Medusa/Blackbolt who I would never have guessed to be dating much less married if it wouldn't be pointed out every time they appear, but also not behind their motivations. Every superhero fights for a certain goal, to avenge the death of someone beloved, to be stronger and no longer be a victim themselves, or because it's destiny. So far, the Inhumans seem to just... do stuff, because the real heroes bump into them and the Inhumans get dragged into it. Personally, I don't feel them.

And the more often they appear with their not-really-there motivation, their non-existent emotion and their so-so-so weird background... the more I grow bored of them. They can barely carry a twenty-minute cartoon episode and they only manage that thanks to the Avengers, Spider-Man or the Guardians being there and actually bringing life, quip, humor and emotion into the story. I have a hard time wrapping my head about twenty minutes of just the emotionless faces of the Inhumans and their excitement-free way of handling things, but the idea of a two-hour movie seems very much out of this world.

Not to mention that I question how they're supposed to fit into the MCU. I mean, if they were slated for a pre-Infinity War release, I'd say, yes their super-duper-weird-alien-powers to help bring down Thanos, because Blackbolt is this über-powerful god-like thingamajig-kinda character, but they're supposed to be released after Infinity War. It's safe to say that the two-parter Infinity War (I don't care that they're renaming the second one, it will still be one story dragging over two movies, leaving us on one hell of a cliffhanger after the first one, there's just no avoiding that) is going to be the climax of the MCU.
The Inhumans movie keeps being pushed further and further back. It's currently stuck somewhere in 2020/2021, so that's kind of saying that even the guys responsible feel like it's not making much sense, I think. It was, at one point, slated to be directly after Infinity War 2... and that would have been such a weird choice to come down from the high of the Infinity War.

Personally, I feel like the Inhumans really don't need to drag the MCU down. The MCU is... loaded with emotion. I mean, Civil War turned from a mainly political storyline - if I understand the comics and the Superhuman Registration Act correctly - into a 90%-emotional-baggage movie. Not a criticism, I love that. But there's quips, relationships (not just romance; the team-relationships and family-relationships are what I mean) and there's a ton of humor. To me, the way the Inhumans were portrayed in the cartoons so far, they're literally the opposite of everything the MCU stands for - there are no quips, there is no emotion behind their actions, there are family relations but they're not being shown by being acted out or acted upon but rather by simply always being stated when they're introduced to someone "We're the Royal Family. Yes, the dog is related to us to. That is our King Blackbolt, that is his wife Medusa, yes, they're married" and so on, all very sterile and such.

There are literally hundreds of superheroes Marvel has to offer. I hope they're going to choose someone more interesting and more... fitting to be included in the MCU instead.

Opinions?

Phoe out!

MLP NextGen: Autumn Aurora by Takara-Phoenix
MLP NextGen: Autumn Aurora
Name: Autumn Aurora
Parents: Flitter & Coco Pommel
Cutie Mark/Special Talent: A leaf being painted red. Since her twin-sister Corona represents spring, Aurora represents autumn (as her name suggests). Where Corona brings this fresh, flowery elegance to her designs, Aurora full-on lays onto colors and color-schemes and does so brilliantly.

Both sisters practically grew up in Rarity's boutique since Coco Pommel manages the shop. And Aurora and Corona take a liking to designs and fashion, but the two actually work best together.
Unlike Corona, who enjoys staying in the shop and working there, Aurora actually likes traveling - finding inspiration not just in nature but also in the vast cutlures Equestria has to offer. Her favorite trveling destination is the Crystal Empire, not just because its crystal-y beauty is very inspiring but also because her best friend Harmony lives there.
Now, I have to elaborate a little. Many people went and started shipping Thunderlane/Cloudchase based on their interactions on the show; me, when I saw it, I went "Oooh, they so cute, they have to be family!". So, my headcanon is that Flitter and Cloudchaser are the cousins of Thunderlane and Rumble. Now, since in my future AU Thunderlane moved to the Crystal Empire, Flitter's family regularly comes to visit him and his family too. Which is how Aurora first met her best friend Harmony.
To Aurora, Harmony was, in a way, a new natural design, seeing as she's a Changeling/Dragon-hybrid. Aurora finds inspiration in that and asks Harmony boltly if she could do some designs. Harmony is instantly hooked, because being the way she is, most pony-aimed fashion is unwearable for her. The two bond over Aurora making awesome designs and clothes for Harmony and thus become best friends.

MLP NextGen: Corona Glitter by Takara-Phoenix
MLP NextGen: Corona Glitter
Name: Corona Glitter
Parents: Flitter & Coco Pommel
Cutie Mark/Special Talent: A flower, to compliment her sister whose cutie mark represents autumn so Corona's represents spring. It appeared when she started bringing that fresh fragile beauty of spring into her fashion designs.

Coco Pommel and Flitter are my pretty ship, I guess. The two most beautiful mares are Fleur and Fluttershy to me, but Coco and Flitter tie for third spot, so I figured why not mash that DNA and ship it? I do see them both as gentle and calm, so I think they'd be the ultimate cute fluff ship.
Headcanon that Flitter and her sister Cloudchaser went to Manehattan for a vacation and during their shopping-trip, Flitter meets Coco Pommel. She instantly likes Coco's sweet and nice personality, but when Flitter and Cloudchaser return to Cloudsdale, it soon becomes just a memory. Until Coco Pommel visits Rarity in Canterlot and the two meet again, this time spending more time together. It becomes a long-distance they-don't-know-what-to-name-it until Cloudchaser puts her hoof down and decides that the two sisters are going to move to Manehattan, because I see Cloudchaser as being more of the one taking innitiative among those two sisters. So Cloudchaser also sets the first date up for Flitter and Coco Pommel and the rest, as they say, is history.
Now, Corona Glitter practically grew up in Rarity's boutique seeing as Coco Pommel manages the boutique. She grew up on fashion designs and how to make outfits and she always admired the way Coco Pommel was when she was working; all concentrated and in her element. So Corona also takes up the profession, together with her twin-sister Aurora.
Corona also meets her best friend in the boutique, because Garden Royal loves hanging out there and admiring the fashion. It's Corona who encourages Garden Royal into chosing her own path; neither taking after the Apple-tradition of farming nor her mother Apple Bloom's cutie mark calling.

MLP NextGen: Garden Royal by Takara-Phoenix
MLP NextGen: Garden Royal
Name: Garden Royal
Parents: Snails & Apple Bloom
Cutie Mark/Special Talent: A golden apple. Little refresher if you're not too familiar with Greek mythology - the goddess Eris placed a golden apple on the table of the other goddesses when she wasn't invited, the apple was 'to the fairest' and Athena, Aphrodite and Hera got into a bitch-fight as to who the fairest was. Leads to the Trojan War, but that's not important atm. Garden Royal is good at judging people, she becomes one of the greatest fashionistas and trend-setters of all of Equestria and beyond and everyone wants to get a metaphorical golden apple from her because Garden Royal saying that you're the fairest put you at the top and your name into everyone's mouth.

My headcanon is that Apple Bloom moves to Manehattan when she's older. She's not aware Snails also moved there, but they run into each other by chance and start hanging out, because they share this feeling of being from a small town and suddenly thrown into this big city. Hanging out turns into dates and they end up married.
The reason Apple Bloom moved to Manehattan is to broaden their Cutie Mark Crusader duties; while Scootaloo and Sweetie Belle cover Canterlot/Ponyville, Apple Bloom and Babs Seed operate from Manehattan, because I imagine that cutie mark problems will be a thing that's only going to get more attention and requests once their crusade is more popular around Equestria.
I like the idea of an Apple not being so tightly associated with farming. I like that Babs Seed went that way and I can see Apple Bloom also taking that route seeing as her cutie mark itself is only an apple out of obligatory reasons than real talent-reasons. Garden Royal however is even farther away from the farming. To the point that she has great distaste for visiting the Apple Farm, even though her parents regularly drag her back to Ponyville, because we know the Apples are a tight knitted bunch regardless of how many branches that family tree has and how far they breach out.
To Garden Royal, Rarity is more of a role-model than her own mother or her aunt Applejack. Rarity built this fashion empire from scratch and fought her way to the top. Garden Royal spent a lot of her youth hanging out at Rarity's Manehattan shop, where she met her best friend Corona Glitter, the daughter of shop-patron Coco Pommel.
But desgining and sowing isn't really Garden Royal's world; she learns in her teens that she is far better at advising about fashion, critizising and judging others.

MLP NextGen: Lightning Clash by Takara-Phoenix
MLP NextGen: Lightning Clash
Name: Lightning Clash
Parents: Thunderlane & Flash Sentry
Cutie Mark/Special Talent: Two crossed lightnings over a shield, because when growing up, he was torn between becoming a Royal Guard like his father Flash Sentry or a Wonderbolt like his father Thunderlane.

I myself consider this my weirdest ship on the show, I suppose. But I adore Thunderlane for some reason and I do want to do something with Flash Sentry, because I actually liked him in the movies. Just not in a ship with Twilight, because let's face it, ever since Twilight came back, she met him once and never paid that any mind or went to look for him again and meet this equivalent to the Flash she had been crushing on in the pseudo-human world.
So, Thunderlane became a Wonderbolt and during one of their shows in the Crystal Empire, he meets Flash Sentry the Royal Guard. They have a playful race and instantly hit it off. For a long while, they stay in contact in a friendly way, until they meet again and things become... more.
As mentioned above, Clash was always at odds whether to become a Wonderbolt or a Royal Guard. In the end, he becomes a Royal Guard and meets his best friend Damon. At first, Clash is in awe at Damon - not only because he had never-ever met a changeling-dragon hybrid in his life, but mainly so because Damon is the son of the Spike, the greatest hero of the Crystal Empire. Once he gets over that, the two boys basically survive Shining Armor's horrible and murderous training together.

MLP NextGen: Damon by Takara-Phoenix
MLP NextGen: Damon
Name: Damon
Parents: Thorax & Spike

Like his sister Harmony, I had to kinda stick with the naming-theme. And Vampire Diaries' Damon is essential the modern Spike and I love him, so Spike's son has to be named Damon. Also, it fits because... demon and Changeling kinda fits.
Damon works hard. Harder than many others, because he has the obstacle of being half-changeling. And, honestly, as much as I loved that episode, I highly doubt they'll start cheering and accepting Changelings just like that. So, Damon had a lot to fight against when growing up. Nonetheless, he had a goal in life. He always wanted to be a Royal Guard. Needless to say, he did that and became the personal guard of Princess Crystal Dawn, of which he is insanely proud of.
His best friend is someone he met during guard-training; Lightning Clash, a second-generation Royal Guard who knows what it feels like to try and fill your father's shoes.
Though, aside from hard-working, Damon is also very mischievous and does occasionally team up with Eris and Moonlight Selenia for pranks.

have you ever tried writing a Daddy!kink story about Nicercy?

this sort of headcanon came to me after re-reading the series and noticing how well Nico takes care of Percy and since you're about the only writer with amazing skills in this fandom who likes Nicercy as much as i do why not ask you to concider writing it.

(of course you're by no means obligated to write this, and i'm not sucking up to your ass but i genuinely think that you have the skills to put together this story the same way i have it in my mind)

ok, so Percy is a struggling college student who takes lots of jobs to keep him standing on his feet and Nico is the older business man who helps his father with the business it kinda starts off with a coffee shop AU kinda thing and then one day Percy finds out that while checking his college account that some one paid for all of his college fees. Angry because Percy know the only person with the enough amount of money to do such thing is Nico after explaining the situation and Nico telling Percy how he saw him struggling and he doesn't like seeing someone he cares about in such state decided to help him, then in the heat of the moment Nico confesses his love to Percy and they start going out.
then he starts showering Percy with presents and expensive things, after a while their friends start teasing them and calling Nico "Percy's Sugar Daddy" and then one day while having sex Percy accidentally calls Nico Daddy since he secretly loved the idea of having Nico as his "dad" since he didn't really have father figure growing up, Nico gets really turned on and insists that Percy keeps calling him Daddy when they're having sex. then the story ends with them having a sort of get together with their friends and out of habit Percy says "Daddy, can you pass the salad?"or something like that and Nico absentmindedly does so and after everyone recovers from their shock they start teasing them all over again xD.

(you really don't have to do it because i know you're busy with your life and planning all those other stories not to mention your headcanon-timeline. if you do decide to do it i wouldn't mind you changing the story a little bit to what you seem fit, i would also gladly wait patiently until you do it.)

*squints very confused* ...I have never read this before, yet it's more than a year old. So, uh, sorry for the ridiculously late answer, but I never got a notification of any sorts...? *blinks confused*
Well, then again I guess it's your luck I found this right now, because a year ago I would have told you no since I was more than just a bit busy at the time (middle of finishing my bachelor degree actually). Right now, as it is, I'm not very busy, but very eager to dash out Nicercy oneshots and also curious to try and mix it up with something new. And since I've never written a Daddy Kink (unless it was, well, with Poseidon), sure, why not give it a try.
Now, I guess that was the ultimate test of patience, eh? xD Though maybe for the future... better send messages or something... ô___Ô°°° *still confused why I never got a notification*
...If you're even still interested in having that story written and aren't thinking I'm a jerk for not answering at all... v///V
