Deadpool fic

Title: His Face
Rating: G
Status: Complete
Pairing: none
Warnings: angst and bad grammar.
Summary: What each of our characters think of Wade's appearance.
Disclaimer: I own nothing of Deadpool and co. except for some comic books and action figures.



Note: I personally don't think that Wade looks that bad so I have no idea where this all came from. Overwhelming angst is overwhelming. Hopefully it does get a bit funny later on.

Wade Wilson, AKA Deadpool
Sometimes, sometimes, Wade Wilson knows just how broken he is, usually it’s in those early, undisturbed quiet hours of the day as he is staring into the half cracked mirror hanging above his sink. He would stare into that scarred, deformed face trying to imagine what he used to look like before all the tortures and experiments, before the cancer. And the worst times, the days when he’d kill and leave a swath of bodies behind, flesh parting beneath his blades like the Red Sea, are the days when he can’t recall what he looked like before.


Blind Al
Once for Wade’s birthday, Blind Al managed to scrap together some of Wade’s old photos; she never told Wade how she managed it or knew they were his old photos but he suspected that Weasel had a part in it. When he saw them, he locked her in The Box and didn’t come back home for 2 days. A few days afterward, she found a newer, larger TV waiting for her in the living room but he did not apologize. Still, Blind Al found those crumpled old photos in the garbage bin, smoothed them out and stored them in an old shoe box on his bookshelf. If Wade ever found them again, he never said.


Weasel
Seeing Wade’s uncovered face no longer bothered Weasel. He’d tell you that it never really bothered him but the truth is that it took him a couple of years of begrudged friendship and bullying to get over it. It’s not the deformity that bothered him; he’s a guy so it’s not like he’s qualified to judge how another man’s face looks. It’s the fact of how painful it looks. Some parts are pale and ridged, like scars of old wounds that never healed properly. Other parts look red and raw, exactly like how flesh would look if someone stripped the skin off with a brillo pad. The worst is when Deadpool just came back from fighting, and the new wounds would blend in with the old wounds, gaping and bleeding like a giant open sore. Weasel never worked up the courage to ask Wade if his face hurts all the time or not.


Priscilla, AKA Nathan Dayspring Askani’son Summers Cable Soldier X
People drifts in and out of Cable’s life like so much flotsam and jetsam; though to be fair, it could be said that he drifts in and out of other people’s lives instead. The first time he met Deadpool, he thought nothing of the red spandex wearing masked mercenary. He would begrudgingly describe that first encounter as amusing if pressed. The second time he met up with Deadpool, the man had a beer box over his head. So it wasn’t really until the third time they met that Cable had a good look of Wade’s face. It didn’t register with Cable that Wade took his mask off until some time after the fact. It secretly irks him that in addition to not being able to read Wade’s mind, Wade’s facial peculiarities also made it difficult for Nate to read his expressions as well.


Bob, Agent of Hydra
Bob fainted when he first saw Mr.Wilson’s face. When he came to, Mr.Wilson had that mask over his head again. Thankfully he didn’t seem mad and even patted Bob on the head. Somehow Bob felt that he managed to disappoint Mr.Wilson that day.


Alex Hayden, AKA Agent X
Alex hates Wilson’s gut so of course he’s very glad that at least he doesn’t share Wilson’s stinky, retarded, looking face. Except on Halloween and other times in between because there are those annoying kids, who always buy out the good stuff in the ice cream truck before he gets there, that he’d like to scare the pants off of.


Outlaw
If you asked Outlaw what she thinks of Wade’s face, she’d get up to your face and say, “Who cares what the man looks like under than mask. Have you seen those round, tight buns?”


Sandi
Sandi likes Mr.Wilson because he makes her laugh sometimes. She knows that he is a good man deep down, deep deep deep down perhaps; and really, the person underneath should be all that everyone looks at anyway.

Siryn
She'll never forgive herself for cringing like that. It wasn't that Wade was hideous. Not really. Wade's tortured face looked like someone who had been dragged down into hell. Siryn had been raised to believe, to have faith, but no loving God would scar and twist a man like that, no matter what crimes he'd committed. Seeing Wade's real face shook Theresa's faith to the core.

I like Bob's best. He really is like a pet (at least the way WE write him).

I think Deadpool referred to him as a pet in the series so its not just random fangirl imagining things.

Good work!

Thanks! Though I sorta stole part of Outlaw's line from the new DP series. This came out of nowhere, surprised the heck out of me.

You lie Outlaw's is not the least bit angsty.
Everyone else however does posses a level of angst.

Outlaw is too hot for angst!

The truth is that the drabbles were suppose to end with Bob but then more came to me and I had to write them down.

Weasel wondering whether Wade's face hurts all the time but not having the courage to ask is a really great and touching observation.

Weasel's is totally my favorite though its darker than what I'd like normallly.

Thank you!

But I don't want to think that Wade's skin is so puss-y :( I'd like to believe that Weasel is being overly dramatic. Also, did ya notice that Cable didn't think Wade is ugly. I have to slash my own story now?!?! *face palms*

I'd like to think that Wade's face is covered in scars because puss means open boil=lots of pain :( What's with Marvel's obsession with disfigurements?!?! I'm ready for pretty!Wade now.

I miss chatting with you and Spammonster because believe it or not I'm actually working on something related to that cracky Disney spiel we had. *oy vey*

Ah, busy RL=not good. Let me know when you're less busy, I have 007 Wade crack to discuss/throw around.

It's a comic so it will be a while since I'm not done drawing it yet. But here's the title: The Little Merpool. XD

Also...do you think there's anything to be done about Mbbit crashing like last week?

Writer!anon would like to know if the OP will please allow her to write Terry's reaction. That scene in the comics was really powerful and I'd love to do something with it.

Sweet! I'll definitely work on this tonight at work. Barring writer's block or nosy co-workers it should be up tomorrow.

Oh Wade....

NICE!!! Can I put it up with the rest of my drabbles? I can credit you as anon or your name if you de-anon.

Sorry!
I forgot to make it clear. I would be flattered if you would include Terry with the rest of the drabbles. Just credit my LJ,please. Hopefully, I wrote her as a more sympathetic character than she's usually written as. Thanks for letting me write her!

Okay wow. Wade/Terry shipper here, and that's awesome.

Plz to be stalking you now?

Anon has evolved into LJ user!
I can has a stalker now? Now I have a name that that drabble can be credited to. Wade/Terry needs all the support it can get after their crappy breakup. I've been writing some stuff set after the loss of her baby, but I've been too lazy to upload them. Time to figure out HTML.

Thank you very much! Yes, the muse is apparently an angst junkie.

Love these! I love DP's little cast of supporting characters - I don't think he really realizes how lucky he is to have them, either XD They all care about him in their own way...

Also, special mention for the Weasel one: you nailed that. Just...wow.

Yeah, Deadpool is totally rich in his group of sometime friends-sometime enemies. Even though he's a nutter, there's sometime adorable about him that draws both the characters in the comics and us fans to him. Thank you for reading!

That was wonderful. I especially liked Outlaw's bit, it was a cute touch of humor in the churing sea of angst. <333 Bob. Thank you for sharing this.
