    Summary

    Written for the following prompt: Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it's before he ever met Charles - in fact, it's before his mother died.

     

    He can save his mother that one time (thanks to his mastery over powers carrying back), but what does Erik do after that? Does he stick around, or escape and run to find Charles again (and hope everything doesn't go wrong)?

     

    Sort of a bookend to my story "Undone," though they are totally independent stories.

    Summary

    “Shit. Kai said you were a kid, but you really are fuckin’ young.”

    “Where’s Kai?”

    “Workin’, if he knows what’s good for him.” The stranger sat in an easy sprawl at the bench, at arm’s reach, his elbows pressed over his knees. “All right, kid. Where the hell did you steal those gems from?”

    “You’re Kai’s boss?” Akira hazarded a guess.

    “Answer the question.”

    “Why should I? I don’t know who you are. You could be an undercover cop.”

    “Heh. Kai was right about that too. You’ve got some fuckin’ balls.” The stranger held out a hand. “Iwai. Kai’s boss.”

    Summary

    Goro mentally weighed his options; if he chose truth, she could potentially ask him something he didn’t want disclosed to the group. If he went with dare, though, he could make a fool out of himself in front of several people that would likely never let it go.

    The lesser of two evils, he supposed. “I think I’ll have to go with.. dare.”

    “Good choice!” Ann replied. She tapped a finger on her chin, eyes raised to the ceiling in momentary thought. Hmming, she grabbed one of the shochu bottles they’d already drank to emptiness, and set it on its side in front of him. “Spin the bottle, and whoever it lands on has to take a body shot off you.”
