"*BAMF*! A Nightcrawler Challenge" by SakuraiDesu
Categories: X-Men
Characters: Other, Reader, You, Nightcrawler

Description: He is my favorite character in all of X-Men. Wolverine gets way too much screen time in my opinion, and worse, Nightcrawler was cut out of the third movie JUST because the new director didn't want to waste time putting make-up on the guy who played him! But Azazel was in First Class (that red guy was Nightcrawler's dad!) and helped remind me how cool our blue buddy is! Hope someone takes up this challenge!


"...who did you say you were?"

"I am Kurt Wagner! But in the Munich Circus, I was known as The Incredible Nightcrawler!"



Challenge: Write a series of reader-insert Nightcrawler drabbles (at least ten, one for every prompt, but feel free to do more).

Theme: Though there are many difference between Kurt and the Reader, they still have much to teach each other--a disagreement is not a call for the end of a relationship, but a chance to learn, grow, and change.


1. This can be any continuity from any of the X-Men media, be it the cartoon, movies, or comics.

2. Sexual content is fine (at any level of explicitness the writer feels comfortable with) but shouldn't be the main focus of the story. It is not by any means a requirement, but is allowed if so the writer chooses.

3. Each prompt is a line of dialogue that either the Reader or Kurt say, and while it is not necessary to use it in the chapter, the theme of the line should dictate the content of the chapter. For example, if the prompt was "I never planned on eating snails, but I find myself pleasantly surprised!", the corresponding chapter should have to do with trying new things, leaving one's comfort zone, or literally eating snails.

4. The Reader can be a normal person, a mutant with any kind of power you choose, a member of the X-Men, one of Magneto's followers... or the chapters could be stand alone, and the Reader could be different in all of them. Your choice.

5. There is no deadline.


1-Kurt: "...but in the Munich Circus, I was known as The Incredible Nightcrawler!"

2-Reader: "If I didn't know you, I'd think you look kind of badass. Your personality ruins it."

3-Kurt: "Pacifism isn't a weakness. Even I know that justice can call for desperate actions."

4-Reader: "My relationship with god? Angry. Sometimes a lot. But always a little."

5-Kurt: "You're too cynical. I believe that there is at least a little good inside of everyone."

6-Reader: "...you know, if were in your shoes, I would've just killed everyone."

7-Kurt: "Saying such a thing is blasphemous. I fear for you, sometimes. And pray."

8-Reader: "Sometimes you're so good it makes me sick. It's like I have to be twice as hateful just to make up for it."

9-Kurt: "I trust my faith absolutely, but even I waver. Your most admirable quality is that you never doubt yourself."

10-Reader: "I've got a nihilistic bent. I don't know about god or ideals... but I do believe in you."

Crack-Reader: "...I didn't hear half of what you just said, but you've got the sexiest distracting accent."

Crack-Kurt: "ACK! Was machst du--?!"
