    Summary

    In an effort to get out from under the thumb of his step-father, Charles chooses to become a courtesan for several minor nobles in King Erik's court. It is not long before he attracts the eye of the young king, and the Cardinal who holds the young king's ear. Charles spends months working to secure his place as King Erik's favorite and to regain his father's title of Merchant Prince. Charles hopes to disprove the old adage that once you enter the king's bed, you have nowhere to go but down.

    A historical AU with alpha/omega dynamics (no heat). Not nearly as dark as the warnings might make it sound.

    Making it back from the war is not the same as making it back alive, but it's a start. Mechanic AU.

    The first day on the job, Bucky hits the ground every time an engine revs; his hands shake when he holds a wrench. But something about the grease and the smell of gasoline feels like home.

    Summary

    Charles only knew three things about Erik Lehnsherr:
    1. His father and mother, Jakob and Edie Lehnsherr, worked for his family. Jakob as a handyman and Edie was the cook of the Xavier household.
    2. Erik Lehnsherr was angry most of the time. That’s why people said he joined the football team, to channel his anger elsewhere. He’s probably angrier on the inside.
    3. And most importantly, it was a matter of national importance that Charles should get into his pants as soon as possible.

    Summary

    Centuries ago, centauri and men warred over everything: territory, food, women, and above all else, love. At the height of the Wars, men discovered fire and gunpowder, where centauri, in turn, mastered archery and metalwork. Desolation and destruction reigned for hundreds of years. Humans were imprisoned. Centauri were captured. Both were enslaved until those with the courage to stand up and fight for what they believed in changed the course of the world forever.

    Since then, centauri and men alike have learned to co-exist. Centauri are accepted everywhere that men are, building up a society that benefits from shared knowledge. However, traditional centauri are distrustful of everything man-made and continue to live in herds across the planet, preferring to live off the earth and hunt for their food. It is their way of life and it is one that is slowly dying out as the young seek opportunities in the built great cities.

    This is the tale of Erik, leader of the Lehnsherr herd, navigating the pitfalls of modern day as he learns how to become a sociable centaur in order to woo his beloved Doctor Charles Xavier after a fateful meeting brings them together.

    Summary

    Charles makes a New Year's Resolution:

     

    “No more straight men,” Charles repeated as he began scrolling through the apartment directory for Emma’s name. “No more futility. No more pointless hoping and heartbreak. In 2013, I never want to hear the words ‘exception,’ ‘experimenting’ or ‘phase.’ If, God forbid, I hear ‘bicurious’ even once, I may take a hostage.”

     

    Then he goes into the party, and Erik is there.

    Summary

    "It had been two years, four months, and 18 days since he had last walked with two legs.
    And even though it had been two years, he would still wake up with phantom pain.
    Steve clenched his jaw as he balled his hand into a fist to stop it from reaching down to 'touch' his leg.
    He had most of his right thigh, but his leg cut off about 5 inches above his knee, or well, where it used to be."

    Steve loses a leg in the war and gets invited to a fundraiser hosted by Stark Industries.
    Tony might yell at Steve; a war veteran.

    Summary

    The weird thing is, Charles always introduces Raven as his sister, but he never calls Erik his brother. Erik would be bothered, except he prefers not to think of Charles as his brother, either. He can’t figure it out for four years, and then suddenly he can.

    Or. A non-powered AU in which Sharon Xavier never remarries, and Charles 'adopts' not only Raven, but Erik too.

    Summary

    The tattoo shop AU you never knew you wanted. Years ago, Nate, Eli, America and Tommy opened 'Patriots' together. Now Nate's moved on and a new piercer - tall, blond, perfect - has taken his place. Billy's nowhere near as cool as his twin brother, and there's no way this new guy, this god among men, this Teddy Altman, would ever be interested in plain old Billy Kaplan.

    Would he?

    A collaboration with Cris-Art.
