THIS IS THE CUTEST THING EVER
they both look a little nervous about what the other one might write
then just the biggest smiles when they are reassured yet again how much they just love each other
Charles realizing that Erik didn’t kill JFK
He just doesn’t want to believe it. It would be so much easier to hate Erik if he were that monster for real. But he isn’t. And you can actually see hope flourish again in Charles’ eyes.
Just appreciate the amazing, marvelous job that James McAvoy did here. He is damn good in this movie.
#where he lets out his breath#that’s him realising that all those years of fury#where directed at a man that did not exist#erik was never the man he believed him to be#when he was in the dark and depressed and aching through his addiction#he realises erik is still the man he saw all those years ago on the balcony at westchester#darker and more troubled and pained but capable of good#always there is the potential for good#and something lifts off his shoulders for a moment#for a moment he hopes again#he stopped hoping because he kept being proved awfully terribly wrong about evryone#but if erik can do good#maybe raven can forgive him?#maybe he was right all along about their real natures#so he hopes again#just a little#cherik (little-smartass)
