Charles’ breakdown when he first tries to use Cerebro is actually terrifying when you think about how many people were screaming in agony and especially when you think about older Charles mentioned that if he concentrates too hard or is disrupted during the process  he could seriously hurt or even kill them . Seeing how unstable young Charles was at this point, it isn’t hard to imagine that something really bad could’ve happened if he hadn’t taken off the helmet or gotten it together.

It’s my favourite thing about Charles, really, that the one thing standing between him and TOTAL ACTUAL WORLD DOMINATION is Charles himself.
Magneto, Shaw, Trask, whatever, they can posture and play super-villains all they want, but their methods, while effective, take time and visible effort. Charles can do it between the sips of his morning tea. It’s not that resistance would be futile, it’s that there would be no resistance, because you wouldn’t even know (a) there needs to be (b) it needs to be now. Because by the time you knew, you probably wouldn’t know and it would be too late.

DragonCon XMFC Fandom Dinner!

fourteenacross:

Just sending this around again as a reminder! Please let me know if you’re thinking of coming? Just so I know how many people to expect, etc.

For those interested (kikabennet and heuristicdevice and anyone else!), we will be having the X-Men Movieverse dinner on Saturday at 5:15pm at Max Lager’s. Max Lager’s is a pub-y kind of place—good beer selection (not so good cider selection, but I’m used to that), decent food, mostly burgers and grill-y stuff. You can check out the website here!

Max Lager’s is a couple blocks away from the main hotels. It’s across from the Sun Trust Plaza, where there are a lot of cosplay photoshoots, if that helps you place it. You can see the map below:

ANYONE IS WELCOME! Newbies, oldbies, total strangers, con BFFs, et cetera! Just give me a shout so I can estimate how many people to expect! I promise we’ll have fun :)

Hello! I’m going to try and make it. :D And I’ll be dragging a friend along with me, too.

In the comics Havok is not always portrayed as a hero and his allegiances are often ambiguous. However, he was on Xavier’s team at the end of First Class, so what side is he on in this film? [Days of Future Past]

Till: Ambiguity is his thing. The ambiguity comes from a place of being a liability. He can’t control his power. He famously can’t control his power for a lot of his arc. That’s the reason he is never on the good side, because he doesn’t want to hurt anyone, but he’s never really been a bad guy. Or he has been but it was sort of Machiavellian, it was a ploy to get on the bad side and undermine them. I think Havok always has a good heart. But he’s definitely not playing for any team necessarily in this one.

Also yeah, I’ve said it before, but like when people are like “why doesn’t Harry ask for help more, why doesn’t he ask questions” THAT IS LITERALLY WHAT HE LEARNED HE WOULD BE PUNISHED FOR DOING GROWING UP. It was drilled into him not to ask for help.

Like the scene that will always break my heart is when Ron discovered Umbridge was basically forcing Harry to mutilate himself, and he was like “WHY THE HECK DIDN’T YOU TELL ANYBODY? WE NEED TO TELL SOMEONE RIGHT AWAY” and Harry’s reaction was “they’re busy, they don’t need me causing them trouble, it would just get them in trouble, they don’t want me to bother them” instantly and Ron was like “what the f*** man” because that is just so, so accurate to what you learn when you’re being abused and bullied. Do not ask for help. Do not bother people. They don’t want to deal with you, this kind of thing is normal and things will just get worse if you do.

It was just really well and subtly done. How Ron completely didn’t understand and was horrified but this was obvious and normal to Harry. Of course he was used to doing things on his own. Of course it was his instinct to keep it a secret.

"Nobody can be whatever they want to be. No kid can do whatever they want to do. It’s a total lie. But they have the right to try and do whatever they want to do. That’s their right, to aim to do whatever they want to do."

If celery is 90% water, is the ocean 10% celery?

necrosummer:

as a scientist I can confirm that this is definitely how percentages and fractions work, and yes, the ocean is 10% celery, which is why we cannot drink ocean water, for we would choke on the celery

The Black Dragonfish(Idiacanthus atlanticus) of the Stomiidae family.

I love how this is like a creature from hell but it has like little pink cheeks 

deep sea anime blush stickers


fun fact those pink cheeks glow to attract unsuspecting prey
fashionable and functional with a dash of abject terror
