That’s a cool name though, I don’t think I’ve ever actually seen that name before anywhere. Too bad though, he could have given it to you as a middle name, but I can see his point. You could always use it as a pen name if you ever wanted to go be a writer or something like that but not have people know your name.

Day-um I love your great grandma!
Love that motto-“it’s a great life if you don’t weaken’ so very ASOIAF, I might have to incorporate that into my daily affirmations, you don’t mind do you?
LOL at telling your dad he has nice legs, what a nice way to introduce him to the family
How old are comic!Wanda and Pietro Maximoff? How old is Polaris?
Well, they’re supposed to be about the same age as Jean Grey, Scott Summers, and Warren Worthington III. In All-New X-Men, they are said to be 16 (which means Wanda and Pietro were that age when they joined Magneto’s Brotherhood). It is accepted that the space trip that gave the Fantastic Four their powers, the event that marks the beginning of the Marvel Universe, happened 12 years ago, in comics-time, and that was probably one year before the first fight between the X-Men and the Brotherhood. So, Wanda and Pietro should be 27, 28 years old. (technically, they were born in the early 1950’s and frozen for a while, but I don’t think anyone wants to add some 60 years to that…)
Lorna is more complicated. I think she’s about Bobby Drake’s and Alex Summers’ age? And they’re one or two years younger than Cyclops, so Lorna would be around 26, I guess.

I’m pretty sure she’s won something if she made it to nearly 100, that’s a long time! Lol, I love the idea of her commenting on people’s hair, love it! I’m imagining she was trashtalking them, but maybe not, either way it’s great
