    Summary

    Erik Lehnsherr has left the Xavier Institute for the Gifted and is already beginning a radical campaign aimed, seemingly at mutant domination.

    The Hellfire Club secretly plots dominion over the world.

    In Washington, politicians and schemers are aiming to create laws to control mutants and the weapons to enforce those laws.

    Against all these seemingly invincible forces stand a small number of teenagers and young adults, who are scarcely even aware of the full dimensions of the dangers they face, let alone ready to face them head on. And yet, the fate of the world may depend on this ragtag band of young people.

    The mutants are rising, but is the world ready for that?

    ONE-SHOTS: If you're interested in seeing a one-shot set in this universe, feel free to request in a comment! I make no promises, but I'm always interested in seeing what readers want to see a bit more of.

    Summary

    The year is 1864. While unrest brews in Europe, Charles Xavier is finally able to start his research after spending years trying to find funding. Riding the tailcoats of Charles Darwin, he sets out into the British countryside to find out how much truth there is in folklore, how much of it that can be explained by his own kind, gifted humans with special abilities.

    Little does he expect to find new friends, new challenges, a budding attraction both emotionally and physically. Not to mention an enemy with far more nefarious and sinister plans than he could have ever imagined.

    Erik Lehnsherr is set with a good business, a manor and grounds, staff and acquaintances he can lean on if needed. However, having tracked down and killed the man who killed his parents, he feels adrift, wondering if this is where he's supposed to end his life; a respectable man with a respectable business.

    Dragging a drowning Englishman out of the river starts him down an entirely unforeseen, but not necessarily, unwelcome path.

    Summary

    Excerpt from 'The Life and Times of King Charles the Third', volume XI of the 'Histories of Westchester':

    They say that his birth was foretold by the Great Seer of this Age, an omega child born unto the House of Xavier and most beloved of the gods. Powerful amongst the Gifted Ones the child will grow to rule a kingdom mighty and vast, a legacy of dominion over land and sea. That he will be beautiful beyond mortal countenance and desired by all who see his face. Empires will fall by his command and kings by his design; the world torn asunder by war and then made new from its ashes.

    These are the words that herald the arrival of Charles Francis Xavier, 124th of the line of Xavier and heir to the throne of Westchester.

    This is his story.

    Summary

    As the 21st century entered its second decade, the world awakened to the existence of mutants. Thousands or even millions of individuals with superhuman powers.

    The heart and soul of the issue, for various reasons, seemed to swirl around a boarding school in upstate New York, run by Professor Charles Xavier, one of the codiscoverers of the x-factor and his good friend, Professor Erik Lehnsherr, a famous physicist. The goal was a simple one, to provide a safe place for mutants to learn about themselves and each other.

    Unfortunately, the world won't let them have that opportunity. The rise of mutants will have vast repercussions for all of humanity ... and the fate of the world may ultimately end up resting on the shoulders of a handful of teenagers.

    BONUS- I'm looking to write some one-shots, separate from the main story. Feel free to comment with suggestions/requests. No promises made, but if something tickles my fancy, you may just get it. I expect length of the one-shots to be somewhere in the neighborhood of a chapter's length (2-3,000 words).

    In their way? The devil himself.

    Make no mistake, this is an extremely grim piece of fic.

    Summary

    Mutants are a new and dangerous threat not only to the colonies and the British Empire, but to the world. So the empire has commissioned the fabled airship, The Arcana, be reinstated with a new captain alongside her newly made sister ship, The White Queen.

But what will become of that order when The Arcana stumbles across her supposedly dead previous captain, who threatens to unearth every dirty secret the colonial force has?

    Summary

    *Sequel to X-Men: Apocalypse*

    Months after Apocalypse's reign of terror, the mutants at the Xavier Mansion begin to heal and unmask their full potential. Meanwhile, Peter's bond with Wanda solidifies, Erik deals with the fallout of his heroic act, and Remy LeBeau embarks on a journey of redemption, vengeance, and justice.

    However, mutants' seemingly innocuous gifts are soon exploited in the most unprecedented way, resulting in the creation of some of the most deadly weapons designed by the most sadistic and intelligent species around. When some of their own are abducted, Erik, Charles, Wanda, the newly formed X-Men, and new allies unite to rescue them. They quickly realize that the enemy is more advanced and fatal than they could've imagined, and that the damage done could ultimately be irreparable.

What many did not know is that the final leader of the X-Men passed on her powers and responsibility to a successor. Will the X-Men reunite? Is the Dream Truly Dead? Find out here.

    Summary

    Pietro's got an unholy fear of rejection and being honest about his feelings, a couple of decades of repression and self-castigation on his back and a humiliating, paralyzing crush on a certain Cajun teammate. His performance is suffering and people are beginning to notice-- but naturally, he'd rather die (again) than admit he's got such a big secret to hide. So when a wild opportunity and some expensive cloning technology presents itself, Pietro does something very impulsive and very, very stupid. And suddenly, he's got twice the Remy to worry about.

    At least this one he can control... right?

    Title paraphrased from Gabriel Bruce's "Perfect Weather".

    Summary

    He swirled the dark liquid in the short glass, watching the ripples form but soon disperse, the chaos subsiding to a still calm, yet with a simple flick of the wrist it came quickly back. It was funny how such a thing could relate to life. Left alone things had a way of settling, but with a little outside interference, that was when they fell into madness. He could understand the world's fear of insanity, it was unknown, unpredictable, one could never truly grasp it. Sure there were those that tried to study it's forming, tried to comprehend the uncomprehendable. They had their shiny degrees, certificates to show that they understood and had made sense of it all, yet in reality they were just as lost as everyone else. Not even those that were afflicted with madness understood it, nor did most of them try. Perhaps that was the best response to insanity, to let it go unquestioned. What did he know? He wasn't a philosopher, yet he was sure everyone suffered from a bit of craziness. It was only those that let the madness take over that were labeled insane.
