You've probably been asked about this before so of course if you have, link me to the post but basically, my friends and I were discussing Cherik and we couldn't agree on whether or not Charles and Erik were bisexual, because you know, they both kiss a woman in First Class. What do you think? ^__^
Hmmm, hmmmm, well I can say I don’t think they’re straight.
For Charles, I think he’s bisexual/pansexual because more than the physical, Charles is going to be attracted to the mind. He felt Erik’s mind in that water and that was it – completely smitten, head-over-heels in love before he even saw Erik’s face (I mean, he saw memories, but we don’t often have our own face in our memories). Erik coming in an attractive package was no doubt a big plus (let’s not pretend Charles isn’t shallow sometimes), but he definitely fell for Erik’s mind.
Erik is a bit harder for me. I go back and forth between demi and bi when it comes to Erik. There’s Magda and there’s Charles and for most of the rest of his life, he’s only got a boner for revenge, which points to him needing that emotional connection. But I can also see him having a sex drive/attraction to random people, but simply suppressing it, which would make him very much not demi but bi. So, one of those, depending on how you’d like to characterize him :D
