Man! I’m thinking about Fire and Ice Zarry again…

I mean Harry, the golden boy. Perfect grades, first line on the football team. Not the captain or anything, but still a star player. He’s a heartthrob with a bit of a reputation for breaking hearts. He doesn’t do it to be mean or anything. He just has a hard time connecting with people and can’t maintain a relationship for long. With his wild curls and impish grin, there’s always another girl in line to fill the empty spot. Each girl that leaves warns the next one, “Don’t waste your time. He’ll never love you.” But those warnings are never followed.

He’s been going to Xavier Institute for Higher Learning most of his life. His family treated him very poorly as a child, and finally they just abandoned him when he was 7. He was intentionally left behind at a rest stop bathroom by his mother who tricked him into getting out of the car.

He was left by himself crying in the late evening. He was so upset that by the time he was found in the middle of the night, the entire building had been coated in a thick layer of ice despite it being the middle of summer.

The woman who found him was a mutant as well and former student of the Xavier Institute. She gave him some water and upon learning of his situation, she drove him to her old school. She shared his situation with the current headmaster who of course took pity on him and he was allowed to live there with some of the other students who’d been abandoned.

He stayed focused and learned good control techniques so he wouldn’t freeze things on accident anymore. In his time there he was allowed to practice a lot and became so skilled with his ice he could create custom snowflakes. He could even manipulate cold water to a certain extent. He was very quick, but also rather devious. He absolutely loved to laugh and wasn’t afraid to get into a little trouble to do so. But only a little, nothing he couldn’t get out of by being cute.

When he creates ice, he does it with the moisture in the air. When it’s too hot or arid he can still create ice from the water in his body. This is a last resort though, because it dehydrates him quickly and makes him too weak. He can also turn water into ice and use it that way as well as manipulating things that were already frozen, but he cannot manifest just regular water, only ice.

His body temperature runs significantly colder than most. When regular people touch him, they’re usually compelled to wrap him in a blanket and hug him, but to him he wants to hose them off until they cool down, although a thin layer of clothing is enough to dispel the heat for regular interaction. His temperature can be brought down by pouring water on him, but he needs to consume the water in order to turn it into ice.

Sometimes when he’s too warm you can see his breath or even just steam rolling off his body as the warmth melts his ice. Sometimes this happens in situations where he isn’t in immediate danger either. Such as when he’s embarrassed and his cheeks flush, or if he’s really close to someone and they warm up his skin.

He feels great in low temperatures and usually goes out in the snow without a coat. He’s not sure if it’s possible for him to get cold at all, even in arctic conditions. But he’s never been in anywhere near those conditions, so he doesn’t know for certain.

He doesn’t do so well in warmer conditions, so he spends a lot of time in the summer indoors and chugging down water. He also spends as much time as possible in the pool. It’s not like the ice or anything, but it keeps his body temperature from getting too high. It also shows off his many tattoos that usually stay hidden, but have a tendency to draw girls in like a magnet.

On the other side you have Zayn the bad boy. He’s only been going to the school for a few months, but already has a reputation for being sort of a thug, a real gangster type.

He’s hot headed and fiery, fueled by instinct and isn’t very measured in his actions. The mantra “don’t play with fire unless you want to get burned,” follows him around like his own shadow.

He was abandoned by his family as a child as well after throwing a fit and accidentally burning his family’s home down. But unlike Harry, he wasn’t taken in by the school. He spent a few years in the streets, only surviving by joining a gang of other mutants.

They were mostly teenagers with too much time on their hands. They stole things and broke into places to stay and they fought with other mutant gangs for territory. On one of those fights in particular, the other gang was relentless.

They had broken into the abandoned warehouse they’d been staying in and one of the girls used her telekinesis to throw anyone who came near the door fifty feet back and into a brick wall. Right as Zayn’s gang was getting ready to just give up and sleep in some cars at the junkyard, Zayn completely lost his temper and he accidentally set the warehouse on fire. Most of the other kids got out, but 2 of them didn’t and were burned to death as a result.

The warehouse fire became a huge deal to the media and they had blown the whole thing out of proportion calling it an attack on society by a mad arsonist. They never found out who really did it, but after the fire Zayn gained his reputation for being absolutely ruthless, and dangerous. Some circles even called him a sociopath because he was only 9 at the time.

But little did they know, the warehouse fire had torn poor Zayn apart on the inside. He had never meant for it to get so bad. He never wanted to hurt anyone, he just wanted somewhere to feel like he belonged.

After that he tried to get a tight control on his fire, but he would still have slip ups every now and then. He never killed anyone else, but he always destroyed things and scared people. By the time he was 11 his gang was full on scared of him. They knew him well enough to know that he really was a nice guy no matter how stoic he was and how good he was at intimidating people when he wanted to. But new members were joining all the time and his reputation preceded him. They knew it was his temper that got him into such situations in the first place. They couldn’t control that.

Eventually they found him to be too much of a liability and they up and left in the middle of the night one day, and he found himself abandoned again. This time he was only on his own a few days before he was picked up by the police for starting a fire in a trash can to stave off some of the winter night’s chill. He was put right into the system where he was bounced around for a while.

No one wanted to keep him because he was a mutant. Eventually he learned how to hide it well, regulating his body heat and not letting people see him start fires. But one day he lost his temper again and accidentally set a tree on fire. The family had thought he’d done it with matches so they tried to have him arrested, but he was only 13 so they allowed the charges to drop on the condition that he started taking therapy.

After that he was put into a group home where he went to his therapy and learned some anger management techniques. He was still a bit hotheaded, but by the end of it, he wasn’t setting things on fire by accident anymore.

While there he grew up a little, and it became evident that he was actually really smart and funny, and he was a complete sweetheart. But he still had his reputation following behind him. So with the help of his gorgeous face, he had girls falling at his feet. Each one wanting to be the girl that tamed the bad boy. But he was never interested, always coming up with some excuse to send the girls away. But it only made the next group try harder.

Eventually he was found out to be a mutant when he was caught behind an old building with a boy. He had been getting hot and heavy with the kid and as things progressed he was losing his control in a way that had never happened to him before in this situation.

By the end of it all he accidentally burned the boy who flipped out about it, drawing the attention of passerby. When the strangers found out what was happening, they ganged up on Zayn, trying to beat him for being a mutant. But Zayn was a good fighter and fended them off rather well without using his fire at all.

But then a guy started playing dirty and began to throw rocks at him. The others joined in and soon Zayn was being pelted with rocks and his grip on his control was slipping. He couldn’t regulate his body temperature anymore. Eventually it got so high that his entire body burst into flames, effectively terrifying the group of bullies and getting them to notify the authorities.

The whole thing had gotten blown out of proportion again, attracting media attention and painting him as some mutant thug who goes around lighting things on fire and beating people up. Only this time they actually had his face being broadcast on national television not just some nameless faceless caricature that represented him.

Since it was determined the entire ordeal was not his fault (something conveniently not mentioned in the media) he wasn’t charged with anything. But he got kicked out of his group home anyways. Just as he was kicked out of the home, an invitation had been extended to him to attend Xavier Institute for Higher Learning. Having nowhere else to go, he happily accepted and was flown out to the school.

He was informed of the true nature of the school on the flight there and was rather excited to be somewhere with people like him. Somewhere he could belong. But once again, his reputation preceded him and he was the outcast, the bad boy again. There were more students who were afraid of him than students who could spell his name properly.

And so sets the backdrop for this story I never intended on writing, yet somehow all these words just came out.

*sigh*

I legit just scared the shit out of my Dad and the cable guy as he was trying to explain to him how the xfinity interface works when I happened to glance up and see that Teen Wolf is on demand. I gasped so hard it kinda hurt my diaphragm a bit and they both whipped their heads over hella hard, probably thinking I was choking or having a heart attack.

False alarm. It only had this past season 3b.

I’m sure I’ll change my mind later, but as of right now I don’t care to relive the emotional rollercoaster that is 3b.

The second dream was more like a fragment of a dream that started as a sort of tangent off the first one.

All I want to do is write, but thanks to my Dad my back hurts so much I can’t sit comfortably in the desk chair and my arms are weak and shaking. Now I’m being sent to the store to get him and my stepmom food, then when I come back I have to help him package the fifty pound item shit thing we just replaced on the car. And tomorrow I have to take it to the post office. And that will be the second over 40 pound item I had to carry in all by myself this week. Well at least this one’s only 4 feet long as opposed to six like the other one.
Ugh. See why I gripe so much? It’s sui fucking annoying.
