I really really like to think that they’re reunited eventually. Not at first—Raven goes her own way, Charles goes back to New York to start the school again—but eventually they do see each other again. Maybe after she rescues Logan, Raven sends him back to the house with a message for Charles, telling him he’ll see her soon. And in the meantime, if she finds mutants she thinks Charles can help, she sends them to him, because even though she’s grown a long way away from her brother, she still thinks of him as the boy who took her in and gave her safety, which is more important than the painful history between them.
When they do see each other, it’s probably difficult. Even though Charles has told Raven he’s stopped trying to control her, that he understands she needs to be her own person, it’s still hard for him to remember that when he wants to worry about her. But he also doesn’t try to make her stay, and instead of telling her he will, he says he hopes he’ll see her again soon.
(Basically, it’s just very important for me to have them reconciled, for Raven to know that Charles sees her as a person with her own mind and desires, as his equal, and for Charles to know that Raven can forgive him.)
