Synopsis: Nearly six months after Cuba, Charles' life is turned upside down for the second time. Though he's slowly learning to adapt to the first, he's not sure he can handle the second. Luckily for him, there are a few people out there more than willing to help.
Synopsis: Erik is forced to repeat that day [on the beach] until he stops being an asshole.
Comments: response to a prompt in the kink meme. Poor Erik just can't seem to stop fucking everything up. It's so brimmed with emotions and helplessness, and Erik's frustration, desperation and anger is phenomenal.
Comments: ...holy Jesus Mary Joseph, this mind-blowing. It's halfway between a fandom-fusion fic and a crossover and the seams of the fandoms merge beautifully. The X-team are an extractor group, but references to the Inception world are delightfully name-dropped. Erik is the extractor, Raven the forger, Sean the architect, Alex the point man and Hank the chemist who works for Saito's company. Their mission is to extract something from Sebastian Shaw's mind. And Charles...Charles is the shade, the human manifest of guilt, lurking on the edges of Erik's mind. It had echoes and parallels to both Inception and X-men First Class, has a perfect world-building background and spot-on characterisation. Raven is so badass in this! It's very long, mind you, clocking at just under 80, 000 words and there's more to that series.
Seconded to infinity. The way it blends the continuities (along with some clever original concepts) is just... holy cow. Be warned: you won't be able to concentrate on anything else until you've finished reading, but it's so worth it.
Synopsis:Human AU set on a modern day college campus. Erik, a misanthropic cafe owner, falls in love with Professor Charles Xavier, a man with a lot of very familiar friends and a lot of ex-boyfriend baggage.
Pairings: Male slash Erik/Charles
Comments: What makes this fic stand out is that it's so well written and emasculates neither guy. There are lemons and it deserves its mature rating.
Synopsis: Author's Summary, Years later, Charles would remember that day. Sometimes he would wonder if he could have changed anything; other times he would despair over what he had since become. But he would always hold the image in his mind: Raven, laughing, and his thoughts flying alongside her on strong wings, silver-gold through the winter air. Once upon a time.
Comments: This story is beautiful in it's precision, world building, and characters. Charles in this story is a BAMF and Erik, well Erik is interesting. I highly recommend this story.
Comments: The first fic is wonderful and funny and Charles is magnificent. The second is a Perspective Flip told from Erik's POV, which still brings the funny, but has some gorgeously bittersweet moments and makes your heart ache.
