Perks of being a hijabi who happened to have no tissues in the cinema is wiping away my tears with my scarf.
In all seriousness though, I enjoyed the movie & I cried because Charles looked just like my grandfather in his last few months. Every time Charles spoke or basically just appeared or Laura held his hand I would literally shed tears, he reminded me so fucking much of my grandfather it broke my fucking heart every time he was on screen & when he was killed I sobbed.
I honestly believe they both deserved a MUCH better death. Like, my brain hasn't even registered that wolverine died bec it didn't feel like it. It ended so abruptly it felt like someone cut a piece of film with scissors and just added typography afterward and that's it. You're sending two legendary characters away, do it emotionally, do it with amazing music & do it with great purpose (Logan's purpose was fine while Charles died so it can aggravate Logan, wtf) I don't know how to explain it but I just didn't feel like it was right after it ended, especially Charles. Don't @ me.
