Sleeping was pointless thanks to your nightmares. Ever since your parents had thrown you out thanks to your mutation, you had been having horrible nightmares. Even though you were safe and welcomed and surrounded by people who had been through the same thing, you couldn’t help but wake up in the middle of the night.
Jolting out of bed you breathed heavily, looking around your dark room. After a few minutes you sighed and got out of bed, making your way to the kitchen. Nothing like a nice cup of hot tea to get you back to sleep.
Silently you padded through the mansion, thankful that you hadn’t woken anybody up. You stopped, noticing that the light in the kitchen was on. Slowly walking in you noticed Charles pouring two cups of tea.
“Did I–?” you asked silently.
“It’s okay. I couldn’t sleep anyway.” said Charles, sending you a soft smile that made your stomach flip.
He held out a cup of tea as you got closer. Taking it you gave him a grateful smile. Making your way to the table you sat across from Charles, feeling the steam from your mug dance across your face.
“Y/N.” said Charles, placing his hand on yours. “I’m here. You don’t need to open up to me, but I’m always willing to listen.”
Feeling the familiar tightening of your throat, hot tears rolled down your cheeks.
“Don’t cry love. That is over. I’m here.”
Hearing this made you lose it. Standing up quickly you walked over to the other side of the table and threw yourself into Charles’ arms. Wrapping his arms around you he pressed his chin into your head.
“Shh.” he said, stroking your head softly.
You had always felt something for Charles, but right now you couldn’t stop yourself.
Pulling yourself away from the man you looked into his eyes. If the look in his eyes meant anything, you hoped it was that he felt the same.
“Can I kiss you?” he asked, tucking a piece of your hair behind your ear.
“You should know the answer to that.” you said, sniffling a little.
Charles smiled and pressed his forehead against yours, his lips barely brushing yours. Swallowing hard you moved closer so your lips touched his. In that moment everything disappeared; your parents, Shaw, the X-Men. It was just you and Charles, and that was all you needed.
I feel like people are forgetting how great this show is so I want to remind you all that:
Mystique was literally every new character and every other villain
I’m not kidding. New student? Mystique.The principal? Mystique. That Scottish punk rocker? Mystique.
That bird? Also Mystique. If someone is not a main character then they are Mystique.
Sometimes if someone is a main character they are still Mystique, like the episode where it turns out that Professor X was Mystique for the whole season
Magneto menacingly twirls paperclips in the air in like half the scenes
Magneto refuses to stand and instead floats at all times, even if it’s just an inch above the ground
Magneto is only shown as a helmet hiding in the shadows for the entire first season
Storm is boss as hell and was worshiped as a goddess when she was younger
There was an episode where all of the girls lowkey started a gang and tore shit up and kicked the asses of villains more effectively than the entire X-team did for the whole series???
Wolverine and Sabretooth fought every time they saw each other. In the mall? On top of a parking garage? While on motorcyles? Fight WITH THE MOTORCYCLES? Like they could literally smell one another miles away and they would run through the whole city just to fight one another, it’s ridiculous
The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants crashed a high school soccer game once
Everyone in the Brotherhood is a sassy asshole and I love it, esp Quicksilver
Professor X is completely unfit to supervise children but people keep giving him their children to supervise
Including his own son, whom he, predictably, also failed to supervise
There was an episode where hunters caught Beast because they thought he was Bigfoot
Right before Jean was going to confess her ~feelings~ to Scott Mystique fucking kidnaps him and throws him to wolves in the desert lol. Professor X also refused to believe another fucking telepath when she said Scott was in danger
One of the characters joins a cabal of sewer mutants after he is disfigured by drinking soda that functions as mutant poison
Magneto had some secret headquarters at a ski resort
Blob knows how to make radish roses
The show is surprisingly positive and has great female characters and also some really good commentary about marginalized groups???
It’s also really true to the comics and does a lot of great side characters justice
Wolverine is like two feet tall in the show, just like in the comics, he’s a great angry munchkin tbh
How could you hate yourself? You are the kindest and most gracious being to ever walk the earth. You are the light of my life. You are the most generous person to exist, Charles. Without you I would be nothing. Whoever made you feel this way must be destroyed. You are a delicate flower and you must be protected at all costs. How could you feel this way, my love?
