This fills me with so many conflicting feelings that... Well, let me just say that this is one of the best and most canon pictures of Cherik that I've ever seen Heart

They both look so desperate! And the way they look at each other is so deep and meaningful. To me, it almost summarizes everything they've been through together.

Charles being carried of course points to not just his handicap but also his vulnerability. He seems to be alright with being carried by Erik, which is so... touching? awesome? heart-wrenching? Oh the feels.

Erik's cape dominates much of the artwork, and evokes a sense of drama, and it gives it an apocalyptic atmosphere, together with the whirling ashes and sparks in the background.

Charles taking off (I assume) the accursed helmet and Erik letting him furthers the sense of trust they must have in this moment. They are each others' fixed points while everything else is coming apart. :dalove:

I'm loving the title too, it's perfect for this piece.

Love it! :love:

You're going to have to be a bit more specific. If you're referring to the fact that I've paired up Magneto and Professor X and that is simply "unbelievable" or "upsetting" or what have you, we find ourselves in a bit of a pot-calling-the-kettle-black situation. Your gallery is replete with photos of women that are incredibly pornographic and icons that indicate you are a member of "cameltoepics" and "girlsinpanties". Pretty sure you're not in a position to judge.
