Also, Lily Potter would have never wanted an abortion, because she was a financially well-off woman starting a family in a happy marriage with a secure place at the top of wizarding society.
The question you should be asking is what if Merope Gaunt, an impoverished and uneducated single woman who escaped from a severely abusive family only to become pregnant with the unwanted child of a man who wanted nothing to do with her, had had access to an abortion and not had immense social pressure brainwashing her into carrying to term?
it got better
It fucking got better.
lemme just tell you a thing:
I wish XMFC had spent longer on the ‘training montage’.
I wish I had a chance to see Erik, who has been hurt and has hurt constantly; Alex, who feared being around people because of what he could do, who lost his brother, watched a friend die because of him and one be taken away and he couldn’t stop it; Raven, who has grown up alone, raised under Charles’ care, but never really able to open up to people, who hides constantly - not just physically, but probably emotionally and mentally too:
I wish I had a chance to see these people grow to be comfortable; leaning out this window, so close to each other. Laughing.
They have found a place where no one scrutinizes them, hates them, locks them away, experiments on them; where they can be with people who understand them.
And these three, I would have liked to see more. I mean, look at how Alex looks to Erik, almost to check if he find the situation funny too; like a mentor. Someone Alex can look up to.
I would have loved to see Erik training Alex; at one point Charles epically cocks up (the outtakes), and its unbelievable that Alex would continue to train. I headcannon that Erik helps him out, helps him be sure about himself, because if anything, Alex is a sort of mirror for Erik and what character exploration that would have been. Erik - because this is a film about young Magneto and Prof X - who on the precipice of his life, the first of many forks in his path, showing how much good he could do here, teaching, guiding, despite his past… but choosing the other path.
more fucking over-
damn it, I would have loved to have seen the kids handling Darwin’s death. Having a ceremony. A moment before they go to Cuba. A toast. A prayer - something.
Sean, gods, we never got enough of this super-cool-laid-back-ginger-ball-of-awesome? I would have loved to see him break apart a fight between Alex and Raven - probably for Hank.
Or Sean being like this amazing listener for Hank’s ideas - because he, as Charles often points out, cannot stop talking - and just sitting there going through comics or watching TV while Hank jabbers away and having a eureka moment and thanking Sean, who just nods with a non-committal wave.
Hank and Charles doing science.
Charles discovering Erik likes The Once and Future King and them geeking out about it. Debating about it. Discussing it. I mean sure, Cherik is all about (Sexy) Chess, but these are two genius-leveled intellectuals, they have other hobbies they share.
Raven and Moira discussing girl things (awkwardly, because they’re too bamf to be really girly, but who doesn’t need girl time now and then)
Alex and Raven sparring.
Moira teaching them some CIA moves.
Erik teaching them ‘better’ ones (because he isn’t going to be one-upped by Moira)
Erik and Sean scrolling through TV and catching an episode of The Fugitive, and getting really into it. It becomes their weekly thing. (I know the montage is over a week. It shouldn’t be. 3 months at least.)
Raven and Sean trying to cook (because, really, who is doing the cooking and cleaning while they’re there?)
Everyone gathering for dinner, for battle planning, for lunch, for crashing Erik and Sean’s The Fugitive and it becoming a family thing.
And I guess that’s my point: I really craved that deeper, familial bond between them all. Something besides Shaw that brought them together: because it was something other than Shaw:
It was not wanting to be alone.
And it was terribly glossed over.
Thank fuck for fanfiction.
Because I’m a disgusting Charles fan and he was still able to use his powers at that point, I’m glad that outtake was removed, but I would have loved to see three whole movies with this team.
This scene is seriously the cutest thing ever.
#Remember when there was a non-human person who hadnt talked to anyone of her species in decades #And her only companion was the man she loved and who ignored her or bossed her around and was rude to her #And Martha met her and the Doctor and Jack were busy doing ‘important shit’ #But Martha was the one who took the time to chat with her #To learn more about her language and culture #Who befriended her #Encouraged her to open up and joked with her and made her laugh #And then because of that discovered what they needed to know BEFORE EVERYONE ELSE#remember that #Remember that time Martha Jones was better than you #God bless Martha Jones
isn’t there a part of the bible where god gets mad at a fig tree for not having any figs on it and curses the fig tree?
