One time I read a fic where Charles was still able to feel his legs at this point, and it was only after Erik turned him over and moved him around that he lost feeling.
This was something that he never ever told Erik.
Just thought I’d ruin some of your lives you’re welcome.

#this was cruel #to take a character and build him from a place that’s so small and dark and broken #to take him from a place where he had something to die because of and give him something to die for #to actually take his world and colour it meticulously bit by bit until he’s giggling in hallways #and then to take that away until he’s exactly where you found him #until to revert back to the way he was is the only thing he has left #TO TAKE HIM IN A PROGRESSION THAT’S A PHYSICAL CIRCLE #this show is run by assholes
