THE DEFAULT ICON DRABBLE CHALLENGE

Write a drabble (100 words exactly) based on your current default icon. no changing it! just write it as it comes; no beta-reading or mulling over. any fandom or no fandom at all. comment or link here
.

(Yes, when Marvel decided to update the X-Men for a new, younger audience, the first thing they did was include their ripoff of Arthur Conan Doyle's Lost World. Go figure.)
