Charles/any-all Avengers characters, finding something unexpected
He doesn’t particularly want to enter the Other Fellow’s mind, but it has to be done. He doesn’t like what he sees there, a maelstrom that rips into him and makes him feel physically ill when he’s done, likes even less the fact that there’s no Doctor Banner to be found in there, no line that separates the two of them, no boundary that he can shove apart in hopes of ripping them one from the other.
He does it anyway; he finds Bruce much too fascinating to do anything less.
