“Once the realisation is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”
~ Rainer Maria Rilke
Seriously, it’s like that bit in TAS where Stan Lee is listening to music and Spidey and the lizard appear in the background, kicking the shit out of each other - there could’ve been an actual giant mutant lizard ripping the girls to shreds and Cherik would not have noticed.
LOL there is no one in that place but them. Yet another Cherik masterclass in eyefucking.
Eyes and that body language of proximity (in a gentlemen’s club, no less) and angling toward each other. Let’s not mention those smiles..
like flowers turned toward the sun.Actually, much of Cherik is their lack of response to the young and attractive and sometimes half-nude females in the movie in favor of each other’s micro-expressions.
Oh my. <3333
This was another moment where I actually bounced in my chair at the theater and thought to myself, THIS CANNOT ACTUALLY BE OUR CANON.

“what do you know about me?”
So I have this theory, but I’ve had trouble explaining it.
Like I think a lot of people think that Erik was just flinging those bullets around willy-nilly, that he was being careless, that he didn’t excise enough control over where the bullets went, and that’s why Charles got shot.
But I think Erik absolutely had control over that bullet, and even as angry and distracted as he was, he put it on a very specific trajectory so no one would get hurt by it.
The problem was, he hasn’t realized that Charles was moving, that he was getting up.
So he didn’t lose track of the bullet - the bullet went exactly where he sent it. He was paying plenty of attention to the bullet.
It was Charles he wasn’t paying attention to, Charles who he lost track of, Charles he overlooked.
Bullets are easy. It was the actions of a real and breathing human being (or whatever) that fucked Erik up.
And ain’t that always the way?
