James McAvoy Quotes

Daily Telegraph

“The only thing that matches the strength of their bond is the strength of their belief in separate ideals. And ultimately, one of them pays the price. Both emotionally and physically.”

"Michael Fassbender is incredible, and really strong—and sexy.” McAvoy added that he and Fassbender decided to work out the textures of their on-screen relationship to give the film heart and make it “more than an action movie."

“He’s [Xavier] just been paralyzed and he’s been betrayed by the person who he’s probably come to care about more than anybody else in the world, and he’s the guy who did it to him.”

It’s kind of a love story, like “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” which, really, was a love story between two men. This is the first time in their lives they’ve met someone who is an equal of sorts, someone who understands them and can connect and push them too.

Ashley Miller (XMFC screenwriter) Quotes

”If the story between Charles and Erik is on some level this… you know, tragic romance, you’ve got to arrange the other elements in that way too.”

- X-Men: First Class Blu Ray special features

Because Science

"The chess scene aside, from the standpoint of sexual imagery, I think the ‘satellite dish’ [scene] is the film’s richest. Charles even asks Erik’s permission to penetrate him! So polite. And then they meld each other’s brains out."

— Professor William Earnest, quoted by E!Online (source)

"You were too good for this world, Charles. But I… I am precisely what it deserves."

Magneto, Civil War: House of M

"I don’t know about you, but the first time I met another adult mutant was like being hit by a thunderbolt. Far, far more powerful than being in love and our human wives knew it.

Our eyes were brighter. Our minds were faster. Sometimes we could spend seventy-two straight hours on the telephone just talking about our ideas for the world.”

- Charles Xavier on meeting Erik Lehnsherr, Ultimate X-Men #16

Hey tumblr, have you ever thought to yourself, “dang it’d sure be cool to set a project in something other than the current times,” but when you go to look up references on google, all you get is a horrible historical pastiche of days gone by?

Well boy howdy, do I have a reference for you!

The Wishbook Web has scans of entire consumer catalogs from past decades, ranging from the early 30s to the late 80s. Each catalog has pages upon pages of reference of clothing, accessories, and shoes for all ages, as well as toys, gadgets, and all sorts of junk that you might buy for yourself or your loved ones. While the website exclusively has Christmas catalogs, the photos and illustrations show products that you could use year-round.

SO MANY REFS OMG…

nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.

I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.

Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.

When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.

NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.

The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.

This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is. 

And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her. 

What a good movie. 

Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.

It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.

Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.

And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.

What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.

paranault asked:

5/6 "I needed to tell both of you that if you have any furniture or equipment requests you have to fill out a form down in the office. The new policy requires that you both sign off on it, since it's a shared office space." "I beg your pardon," Charles said slowly. "Did you say shared office space?" Lehnsherr looked similarly taken aback. Alex, however, was unpeturbed. "Yeah, didn't I mention that? Anyways, let me know if you need anything else!"

Part five of a prompt I sent to paranault yesterday:

Erik/Charles (of course), they meet when Erik opens a door that Charles is trying to open the wrong way. :)

paranault asked:

4/? Really, the man was quite nice to look at, all tall and slim and sharp lines as he reached past Charles to grasp the door handle and -- oh. Pull it open.Well. That was a little embarrassing. Charles gathered up his things as best he could and tried to regain a bit of his composure. "Oh, hey, Professor Xavier!" Alex, the department secretary, appeared at the end of the hall. "And Professor Lehnsherr, great, I was looking for you as well."

Part four of a prompt I sent to paranault yesterday:

Erik/Charles (of course), they meet when Erik opens a door that Charles is trying to open the wrong way. :)

paranault asked:

3/ "No, I'm pretty sure this is where I was told--" From above him (quite far above, some part of his brain noted) came a deeply aggravated sigh. "Move away from the door, please." "Really, I swear I'm supposed to be here, I just talked to Alex downstairs and he said the new adjunct office was in 312--" "I'm sure he did. Now, please step aside." His voice was crisp and authoritative and Charles reacted somewhat unconsciously, awkwardly scuttling to the left with his pile of books.

Part three of a prompt I sent to paranault yesterday:

Erik/Charles (of course), they meet when Erik opens a door that Charles is trying to open the wrong way. :)

paranault asked:

2/? Charles startled, and his copy of Mutants in Pre-Columbian History slipped from the top of the pile and thudded onto the floor. He turned to find himself being eyed suspiciously by an austerely dressed man. "Sorry, can I help you?" The man raised an inquiring eyebrow. "Is there a reason that you're trying to break into my office?" "What?" Charles checked the room number on the faded plastic placard next to the door as he gingerly crouched down to try and retrieve his book.

Part two of a prompt I sent to paranault yesterday:

Erik/Charles (of course), they meet when Erik opens a door that Charles is trying to open the wrong way. :)

paranault asked:

Sorry, this took longer than I thought! Part 1: "Dammit," Charles muttered under his breath, "dammit dammit dammit." He rearranged the precarious stack of books and papers in his arms so he could force the knob down with his elbow and tried another shove with his shoulder. The heavy industrial door rattled a bit in its frame, but stubbornly refused to open. Someone cleared their throat behind him. "Excuse me."

Eeeee! Part one of a prompt I sent to paranault yesterday:

Erik/Charles (of course), they meet when Erik opens a door that Charles is trying to open the wrong way. :)
