Question to my Flist  
I have a favour to ask any X Men: First Class fans out there.

Well, it's more an opinion than a favour.

If I have a mutant power, it's the uncanny ability to read a fic and then be able to put a real-life 'face' to the character, just as the author imagined. So yesterday I was contemplating a gender-bending fic with a female version of Charles in (a 'Charlotte' if you will) and reckoned I'd found the most perfect candidate for him/her.

I'd love any opinions from other members of the the fandom though, so here's a pic...





Watcha reckon, folks? Thoughts?

I already asked one person who's yet to see the film, and she reckoned I wasn't crazy. But the jury's still out. ^_^'

I'd really appreciate feedback on this one!
Toodlepip,
-CC.

Oh, I'm so sorry! And after you were nice enough to comment, too.
I think I've fixed it now - can you see??

Whoa! I think she can pass as Charles, with flying colors! I mean Charlotte, LOL XD
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
Good! ^_^ Thx for the input!

Ohh, good find!
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 05:16 pm (UTC)
Heheh, hey you! [Isn't she just? She's just as good an actor as James, too!]

State of play co-star!
Weird, she was in the TV series State Of Play with James! And she's Scottish!

This idea is doing my head in, now. Nice one.

Re: State of play co-star!
IKR?? Isn't that uncanny? *she's got a lovely accent, just like him*
Glad the idea's taken root... ^_^

Whoa, I totally see it!
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 05:58 pm (UTC)
*air-punch* Yes!!
Alara Rogersalara_r on June 19th, 2011 06:46 pm (UTC)
I'm a bit biased because I'm a comicverse fan, so I'm having a hard time wrapping my brain around a brunet Charles (and, for that matter, an Erik who doesn't have white hair) in the first place. (Charles was blond in comicverse before losing his hair.)

But yeah, that woman *totally* looks like a female version of the actor who played Xavier in First Class.
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 06:50 pm (UTC)
Ah, a canon-connoisseur! ^_^ Pleased to have your input, too (Ah! I didn't know Prof X was blond! I've only ever seen panels from when he'd already lost his hair...) Well, if even the old-school/bit-biased fans can see the resemblance, then I guess I must be onto a winner. Thank you! ^_^

*loudsnort* Good! I'm infecting the populace with my strain of madness -mwahahahahah, etc.

I was thinking about this today and yep, I'd definitely agree that that is a female McAvoyXavier. (Personally I kept thinking of female Charles as an Evelyn because Charlotte was my brother's ex-girlfriend's name so that was too weird for me lol). At the time I used the image of Natalie Dormer, but I think yours is closer. Here's Natalie anyway, because you can never get enough of Natalie:

Oh, she's great! ^_^ Got such an impish look, I can see why you thought of her.
But, yeah, it was the freckles/pointed nose of my girl which sealed the deal, for me. ^_^'

Whoa. I see it!
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 09:22 pm (UTC)
Ain't it cool?? ^_^
Missy: mutant | charlesever_obsessed on June 19th, 2011 09:18 pm (UTC)
WHO IS THIS, OR IS IT UNKNOWN?

I'm actually craving alwaysagirl!Charles and alwaysagirl!Erik for weeks and the itch is getting insane over here. Very close to writing myself something because YES.
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 09:20 pm (UTC)
Heheh - yes, she's known, she's a wonderful underrated actress called Kelly McDonald, and like James she's a Scot! ^_^
Phoenix.G.Fawkes: X-Men: CharlesErik Eye!Sexphoenixgfawkes on June 19th, 2011 10:20 pm (UTC)
Whoa, she really looks like him. It's uncanny. What's the actress' name?
Catcakehole_cat on June 19th, 2011 10:24 pm (UTC)
*my mutant power strikes again* It's get weirder! She's Scottish too! ^_^
[And her name's Kelly McDonald. She's a lovely actress, always does a great job about of small parts.]
MF Luder: X-Men Charlesmf_luder_xf on June 19th, 2011 11:40 pm (UTC)
Haha, Charlotte is the name I was thinking for girl!Charles, too. (And Charlie for short!)

I think this woman would make a lovely Charlotte.
Midori Yoshidaqueenclo1 on June 20th, 2011 12:16 am (UTC)
The resemblance is uncanny! Ever since seeing the movie, I have been playing around with ideas of a gender-bent version. Instead of Charles x Erik, make it Charlotte x Erika. Well, I guess I'm not the only one.
Catcakehole_cat on June 20th, 2011 12:18 am (UTC)
IKR? I have a weird gift for this sorta fing.
Hee, I think every principally-male fandom has this, lol, I certainly know it's true of my other fandoms!

Very pretty. ♥
Catcakehole_cat on June 20th, 2011 01:23 am (UTC)
Ah! A good match for James McAvoy then! ^_^
memory lossheresie_irisee on June 20th, 2011 09:10 am (UTC)
Oh my God, she is perfect o__o the nose and eyes especially, and even right down to the hair.

Yours is a very groovy mutation indeed!
Catcakehole_cat on June 20th, 2011 03:44 pm (UTC)
IKR?? The nose! The kind eyes!!

Lol, why thank yaw, it's come in handy when I've had to banner-ise peoples' fics in the past. ^_^
