↳ When ah went to the X-Men, ah was desperate. They had every reason to turn me away. But they didn’t. Ah figured if they believed in me, ah owed it to them to believe in myself. To try. To get better. Ah found out ah could. So much more than ah ever imagined possible. Ah’m still learnin’ that. Biggest lesson was that there were people who cared enough to help…but at the end of the day, it was up to me. Ah ain’t gonna lie. It was hard. Still is. And ah live knowin’ it could all unravel if ah make one wrong move. But it all started with someone believing in me. And me takin’ that first step. Ah believe in you. Now it’s your move.
One of the reasons I love Emma (out of the million I could list) is that she has a realistic personality. I see so many characters with ‘tragic’ backgrounds in comics that managed to be these great, positive thinking, optimistic people, and that’s great and all, but it just seems too good to be true. Emma came from a shitty family. Emotionally abusive father, distant alcoholic mother, the sisters she was ridiculed by and her drug addict gay brother that tried to kill himself. She grew up around shitty people, who put her down all the time and she became an introvert who, not surprisingly, developed a pretty bitter outlook on life at young age. When you drink in that much hate, it’s what you end up putting back out. I can imagine Emma wanting to join the hellfire club because who wouldn’t enjoy power when they’ve had none their whole life? To lash out at people the way you’ve been lashed out at. On a sick kind of note, her relationship with Shaw I think mirrors the one she has with her father. Both powerful, cruel and distant men (and on another, more unrelated note, cyclops is also powerul and distant. I’m just saying) but the difference is Shaw paid her attention and gave her the chance to be a queen and to re-invent herself, and she took it. Emma has never made excuses for herself. She chose to do the things she did and she owns her past sins, but when you look back on where she came from and what she went through, you can understand her.
so anyone who just waves her off as a ‘bitchy slut’ after only reading a few issues of whatever series can come fight me personally ok? ok
