I watched it yesterday because Michael Fassbender, Rose Byrne, and James MacAvoy seemed like a pretty and respectable cast. I didn't expect much. THEN MY MIND WAS BLOWN.

"What do you know about me?"
"Everything."

The Erik (Magneto) and Xavier relationship in this just blew my mind... it is hard to explain, but it's like Chloe and Davis's scenes from Prey and all the Clex moments(back when Smallville was not...you know, the most atrocious thing to ever spork our eyes...) GOT TOGETHER AND HAD BABIES.

Suffice to say that the movie was deliciously eyesexy and reaffirming, and the ultimate pain in the ending was not brought on by the writer's compulsive tendency to assassinate characters.  It was just there, and it hurt and it never for a moment made you doubt that both men loved eachother even though they ended up on different sides. And it made me want to write some ficlets to put out there with my chlavis ones.

Have you watched x-men first class yet?

I thought the same thing until yesterday. (Because there has been a lot of erik and charles floating around with the other xmen movies and I didn't quite get it to that extent.I assumed it was slash for the sake of it.)

AND THEN!.!.! It's really like their growing together is the emotional anchor to the story.

OMY. SO GLAD TO KNOW I'M NOT THE ONLY ONE GROSSED OUT BY THAT. haha, I like Rose Byrne and all, but I was like,Charles, what are you doing pretending she's Erik? That's not nice.

I KNOW RIGHT?! Charles, stop betraying your love! STOP IT! Clearly, Moira is a rebound.

And yes, I love Rose Byrne, but still. *waves Charles/Erik flag*

And idk why I wasn't similarly grossed out by Raven and Erik hooking up (though I'm not entirely convinced they did in the end...), but it's like...Erik just being That Guy. *shrugs*

I thought it was really funny, because I never got any real indication of Charles/Moira. I mean, he hit on her with his professor voice, but lets face it, he did that a lot. INDISCRIMINATELY. His feelings for Erik were too deep and beautiful to be cheapened with such silliness. I mean, honestly, honestly, I felt like I was watching a romantic drama or something whenever they interacted. I mean that in the best way possible.

Moira deserved some other plotline. Looking badass and with a love interest. but preferably not getting all up in the epic.

I wasn't grossed out by the Erik/Raven either because it seemed more like an extension of who Erik was. He was kind of, reassuring Raven that her mutant self was more beautiful than the human illusion, and i don't think it was out of any romantic desire on his part. It had that oddly paternal vibe that magneto had for mystique in the other movies.
Also, Erik is hot. And...I'm grateful for the chance to see him kiss someone?

(haha, that reminds me of a fic I read on 1st kink where raven shifts into charles to try and seduce Erik and Erik has an angstfilled, metal shaking breakdown.)

omg that fic sounds amazing.

I never got any real indication of Charles/Moira
EXACTLY. Even though I was totes jealous of that first girl, and then jealous of Moira getting that whole 'genetic mutation' schpiel (and then I wondered what he'd say my genetic mutation would be...), there was absolutely nothing for the rest of the film. And it's a two hour film. So there was plenty of time to see something else, but...nothing.

Although I am giving them that between Charles getting shot and going through all that hospital shit and then finally getting into the wheelchair and out and about something might have happened, but...no. There was no clues leading up to it at all.

And yes, Moira deserved to be a bit more badass. I mean, come on-it's the sixties and she's that high up and given that much responsibility in the CIA? I want her to be more badass, please.

Erik/Raven worked because yeah, of what we've seen before and how they approached each other in this incarnation.

ERIK/CHARLES 4 EVAAAHHH

Ah Charles Moira felt like...fake love interest..... EPIC LOVE BETWEEN ERIK AND CHARLES....:string: lets bring the girl in to make it ~mainstream~. I call fakery.
I am still a little cross we didn't get a kiss with Charles instead. I mean we got everything else...but...1111! the pretty!

Oooh I found the fic again. Linkkkkk:

Gah exactly! I mean they had awesome cameos Y U NO KISS?

I firmly believe something must have happened when Erik and Charles were on their mutant hunting road trip.
