“Safety and peace, Charles.”
“Your presence here deprives me of both.”

Aeroplane Chess

So everyone always talks about the aeroplane scene in X-Men: Days of Future Past, when Charles yells “You abandoned me. You took her away and you abandoned me.” And don’t get me wrong I have a lot to say about that scene. But I don’t think the scene where they play chess on the plane gets enough attention.

All I want to say is how fucking broken Charles is at this point. He’s all pissed off at Erik and declines his offer to play chess and when Erik actually apologizes he clears his throat and starts their game of chess. It just upsets me because he’s repressing so many emotions.
