    Summary

    Maybe it's like looking at an old painting in an exhibition hall: it's impossible to see things clearly when you're standing too close. Maybe that's what happened to her: she's become too close.

    Summary

    Erik Lehnsherr hunts the things that go bump in the night.

    He’s done so since he was a child, since the first time his mother put a knife in his hand and told him how to use it, told him why he should.

    But ten years alone on the road has caught up to him, left him wrung out and longing for a place to rest, recharge, get his head back on straight. Though nowhere has ever truly felt like home, he heads straight for New York City, a place that’s always had more to offer him by way of warmth and comfort than any other. What he finds when he gets there, however, is several miles south of anything approaching restful. Old acquaintances, old memories, and a mysterious stranger who has him forgetting all his rules — Erik soon realizes there are decisions he needs to make, before circumstances intervene and make them for him. Otherwise, he might not like the result.

    Summary

    Charles Xavier is sixteen years old the day his mother dies, leaving him parentless, temporarily penniless, and at the mercy of an inexplicable will. Shortly thereafter, his life takes a very drastic, entirely unexpected turn.

    Sent to live with his estranged father -- a man named Erik Lehnsherr whom he's never met, and knows next to nothing about -- Charles soon finds himself completely out of his depth. What follows is a bitter, obsessive, destructive battle of wills that sends both Charles and Erik sliding dangerously into something neither of them are prepared for, and may not be able to stop.

    As to whether they want to, that's another matter entirely.

    Summary

    Erik thought it was bad watching Charles take his shirt off for Janos, session after session.

    Turns out there's nothing compared to the torment of tattooing your crushes's upper thigh.

    Summary

    “Charles,” Erik says, and if his voice hits a pleading note then who can really blame him, “Charles, it’s me.”

    It takes several longer moments before Charles musters up the strength to answer, breath stuttering horribly as he tries to breathe. He’s shaking, entire body trembling.

    “Erik,” Charles says, his voice cracking, “Erik, I want to die.”
