Eric Matthews and Mr. Feeny having breakfast together two months ago. I’m dying. I am die.This makes me so happy !
This is the exact moment when Charles realizes that not only is Erik telling him the truth about not killing the president, but that Erik tried to save a man in authority who championed Charles’ dream of the unity between species. Erik believed, and it was Erik who was punished for his belief that Charles’ way (and JFK’s) might be able to work.
This is the moment when Charles realized that he had Erik convinced. Once.
Erik’s inner monologue: “Puppy eyes, think puppy eyes, you know he can’t resist them. Yes! It’s working, no wait, you look too smug, remember Puppy Eyes. Sexy puppy eyes! There we go! Thank G-d he can’t read my mind right now!”
i always wonder at what point erik makes his decision about what he’s going to do in paris. does he know, already, when he’s reaching out to charles on the plane? is he still trying, knowing tomorrow it will be over, that once he does what he (thinks he) has to do, charles will hate him forever anyway, but it’s still worth this now? hm.
You know, it’s funny because the last time I saw the film, I watched this scene closely specifically for that very reason. Did Erik know, at this point, that he was going to have to sacrifice Mystique? Even as he sat with Charles and spoke about her fondly, and played chess like old times?
At the end of the scene the camera lingers on Erik’s face for a long, lingering pause which someone gifed beautifully here:
There’s something in his expression, I think at least, that speaks to a kind of painful resolve. Charles has awkwardly begun to play chess, their old friendship has sort of rekindled, or at least begun to mend, and yet I feel like I can see in Erik’s expression a kind of regret…possibly for what he’s about to do? And for what he’s about to lose all over again?
And you know the best thing about this movie is they could have made Felix be the nice guy, be the understanding guy, the only guy who’s kind to Ralph, but they make him just as prejudiced as the other game characters. He wasn’t mean to Ralph per say, but he wasn’t nice either, and definitely didn’t want to get involved with the trouble that followed Ralph around.
It’s only after Felix gets treated badly himself that he starts looking at how Ralph is treated by others, how Ralph is treated by him and changes his attitude.
Because that’s the thing, you don’t have to be the bad guy to be prejudiced. Sometimes you can be the nice guy who doesn’t do anything for or against, and sometimes that’s just as bad.
This movie. Ugh.
That was on point.
I enjoy the simpler things in life, like sitting down with a good long gay fanfic.
The best deodorant you will ever use
Seriously. 1/4 teaspoon in each pit and you can sweat your ass off, totally stink-free for like 2 full days. It’s a natural anti-bacterial so those little fuckers won’t multiply and make you smell. Plus it’s cheaper and healthier than any deod you can buy anywhere.
Use equal parts of the following:
With a few drops of whatever essential oil you want, for fragrance. Otherwise it basically just smells like nothing. I use tea tree oil & pine needle oil. Cuz they’re MANLY.
Note - It pretty much turns to liquid if it’s warmer than about 75 degrees. If you want to keep it solid, you can refrigerate it or add a little more corn starch.
Reblogging myself again, cuz I still use this and it’s still awesome
This is what I’ve been using for about a year now and it works wonders.
Not convinced it works? My fiance is literally the smelliest human being I’ve ever met when he’s been sweating all day. I made him some with tea tree oil and he now smells nice and mint-ish as the end of the day, even if he’s been outside working.
Not to mention it’s cheaper, smells better, better for you AND better for the environment to make your own :D
It is my headcanon that there is a gun on the table in this scene because The Winter Soldier has been trained to arm any of his handlers who are not already armed while in his presence so that, if they so choose, they can put him down at any time.
Later, it takes Steve months to figure out why Bucky gives him a knife every time they’re in the same room.
