Why does no one talk about this. In the awesome quicksilver scene in days of the future past. When he sees that the guards started shooting plastic bullets at Erik- Charles freakin puts his hand over Erik’s HEART. He is sacrificing himself to save Erik, despite everything he had done, despite everything he had taken from him, and despite all their differences. Charles charles charles god

What…? 
All right - let’s agree he put his hand over Erik’s heart. However, that bullet would go right through Charles’ hand. If he was truly going to ‘sacrifice’ himself for Erik - he would place his body in front of Erik. 
No, I think his reaction was definitely telling. But I think he placed his hand over Erik’s body to stop him from using his powers to hurt the guards. Remember the metal was vibrating. And Erik JUST PROMISED he wouldn’t hurt anyone and he would follow Charles’ rules. But Erik doesn’t want to die and definitely doesn’t want Charles to get shot either. So it was a definite impasse - and the typical crux of their problems. :-) 
Thank goodness Erik has a good son in Peter - who saved the day. :-)

#but ah yes#Mutant And Proud: Unless You Are A Telepath Because Then You’d Better Not

CHARLE

THIS

like, I have intense anger toward Erik and Raven about this, but also anger toward the writer/director/etc who seem to want us to feel sympathy for Raven here; seriously, people, yes, Charles can be an utter arse for other reasons, BUT DO YOU NOT SEE THE BIGGER ISSUE

I can’t imagine how absolutely horrifying it is to eventually realize that your sibling has the power to read your mind and control it. Especially when you start noticing how he uses his power to ‘control’ people and situations. At least for me; I would be really sacred. I’m honest. Maybe I’m a chicken-shit? Maybe I’m a heartless fucker? But, I can’t even imagine that and I don’t have a fucking brother. Oh and on top of those powers; he’s overly protective with you.

I just can’t imagine why Raven has to be willing to allow Charles to do whatever he wants with her….I would think the women in the fandom would find this issue between Raven and Charles an X-Men example about men/women. Don’t you see how freaking creepy it is…?

Charles needs Erik to tell him that he’s crossing the line with Raven. Raven had no freedom with Charles.

Charles wants to know why Raven can not stay with him FOREVER?

THAT is fucking creepy and very, very wrong. :shivering: Charles has issues - he turned to drugs and alcohol. And he wants Raven to give up everything SHE WANTS to stay with him? And folks in the fandom find that as an example of ‘brotherly love’? Wow.

If my brother said that to me; I would freak the FUCK out. IF my parents said that to me; I would freak the FUCK out.

How can Raven no freak out? She knows that Charles has the power to make her stay!

Again, I like to think about how I would react in this situation. I can only speak for myself. And I would freak the fuck out too. Brotherly Love doesn’t give someone Carte Blanche. 

But  there is so much Raven & Eric hatred in the fandom. James McAvoy is their fave. Even James has said that Charles is an asshole with Raven.

The worst still is that Charles “apologizes” and then immediately tries to justify it by …”I just…” Wow. Written as a classic example of Charles possibly turning into an abuser with Raven (IMO) and thank god, Charles realizes it at the end of the film. Thank goodness  we later see that Professor X NEVER EVER makes anyone stay if they don’t want to. He never pushes another person or gets preachy and judgmental with others. Even if they knows they are making a mistake. This is the change and learning that Charles Xavier goes through to become Professor X. (again only IMO) I find the Raven/Charles relationship so important. So important discussion about power and relationships - I just can’t dismiss it as Raven just being a ‘brat’. I find THAT very offensive. 

I can see how they removed this scene because it is VERY disturbing and it would definitely make (I think) most viewers want Raven to stay the fuck away from Charles and NOT listen to him.  IMO

OMG finally a voice of reason. I was despairing looking at the notes. People should really watch the full 3 minute scene, you can see it here in LQ (https://www.facebook.com/jenlawus). Even Logan recognizes how messed up it is how Charles treats Raven. I think this scene is important in that it gives the end scene where Charles finally sees the error in his ways a bit more impact and also the info that Raven doesn’t really hold a grudge against Erik since she would have done the same but ultimately I’m glad it was cut because here we have a prime example of how paternalistic and controlling Charles’ actions towards Raven were and everyone’s response is, POOR CHARLES! RAVEN IS SO MEAN! Ugh, no thank you.

Oh my fucking god. I made my comment without seeing the entire 3 minutes. Holy shit. I nailed it. Thank you for posting that link. I think this scene SHOULD have been in the movie but it would have been a very negative scene against Charles. But it does make a lot more sense of Raven’s fear of Charles. Amazing scene  - NO wonder Raven walks away from Charles (and Erik) at the end. No wonder. 

Raven and Hank are afraid of Charles. I don’t think Raven hates Charles. I see fear. She sees Charles “forcing” Hank. 

Charles is so out of touch with the way he’s treating those around him. He’s deaf to the tone of his voice. 

I love it. I think James loved it too. He loved to be able to make Charles grow and change….this entire movie is about Charles Xavier being a fucking asshole! 

And then there is Erik.  :P

why does everyone have to be "thirsty" or a "famewhore"? In some cases its obvious (Moran) when someone is fameing, but why can't it be artistic friends who are all in entertainment working together, giving each other a shout out and a hand when they can, and one member of the "group" happens to be more famous than the other? Im pretty sure even if BC wasn't a big star, he would be promoting his pals stuff and helping as much as he can & is prob happy he can help in such a large way suddenly

I agree. I don’t think James Rhodes is a twittering about Benedict because he’s a fame-whore. I think it just happens that his best friend has become a superstar (for some people, especially Tumblr). Let’s remember that in the real world, no one gives a fuck about Benedict Cumberbatch. Most people - especially in the US - don’t give a rat’s ass about James mentioning Ben. This is a Tumblr phenomena that many seem to think is real world too.

But it is not. Personally,I’m not a fan of Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr (a slight exception for me, and already I’ve abandoned my so called beloved fandom because they are rude as all fucks) and all that shit. Obviously neither is Ben. But some are - and - there is no reason for James to exclude his best buddy. I pray to god that the actors that I have some sort of respect, continue to stay away from Social Media (James McAvoy, Benedict Cumberbatch and Michael Fassbender). Social Media becomes a vortex of bizarre internet rule and social justice warriors targets. It is not worth it for people who just prefer real life interaction. :-) 

P.S.

Why am I the only non anonymous poster and why are so many people anonymous? Are people seriously afraid to give their opinions on this nonsensical crap? Goddess bless the folks who have courage in Hong Kong, Ferguson and other places that risk showing their faces and shouting their message about issues of real important.  

I like you too, Erik!!!

For fuck’s sake - my name is Nicolas. LOL

these two are massive dorks. inbetween shooting a scene, they started just making farting noises and giggling like little 5 year olds. it was great. (I was an extra).

Michael gets really sweet with ginger twinks.

"reading". ive seen LONG ass threads on tumblr and other site analyzing if he looks tired, happy, "in love" etc from interview. people say that "what you see is what you get" (pob true) and that they can tell how he is really feeling in these videos. its creepy. i had to give up reading

If there is a thread or essay on Benedict Cumberbatch looking "constipated" from lack of fiber in his diet; for god’s fucking sake - send me the damn link! Now that I would read with pleasure. I would not find that creepy at all.
