    Summary

    When Erik upsets his children, they have a habit of running away from home--and straight to Charles' school for cookies and consolation. Charles doesn't mind the visitors, but as they appear more and more frequently, he realizes that sooner or later, he and Erik are going to have to talk about what happened on the beach and what it means for their future and the future of Erik's children.

    Summary

    Erik wants to sleep with Charles, but all Charles seems to want to do is pick up women in bars. So when a meeting with a mutant on their recruitment trip leaves Erik in a woman's body, he may as well get something out of it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Erik's been in a woman's body since yesterday. Last night, he didn't do anything about it, still reeling and off-balance. But he's always adjusted quickly to change, and he has a plan now.

    He knows he can't have Charles, not permanently. But he doesn't see any reason why he can't have him for a week or two, however long this lasts.

    Summary

    In December 1944, the entire nation loves Rebecca Lawrence - "America's Most Beloved Homemaker." Her columns about leading the ideal life in the country help lift people's spirits on the home front during World War II. But when her publisher asks her to host a war hero for Christmas dinner, the world is in danger of learning the truth ... which is that "Rebecca Lawrence" is imaginary. Really, she's a combination of Raven's snappy writing and Charles' knowhow in the kitchen.

    However, this war hero, Erik Lehnsherr, is headed to Connecticut, so Raven and Charles have no choice but to find a way to make the imaginary real - at least, just for Christmas. Charles thinks they can pull it off, at least until he opens the door to see Erik and falls in love at first sight.

    (Kaydeefalls asked for a fusion, any fusion. So naturally I decided to mix XMFC with a 1940s Christmas movie.)

    Summary

    Erik does not understand sex relationships. Charles is bossy. Power, pleasure, equality.

    "Oh, not that one," Charles says languidly from the bed, still not having gotten up, "The other one, the one to my left, that sweater's my favorite."

    It's his job, now, to take care of Charles.
     
    "What," Charles says vaguely, but Erik just kisses him on the forehead.

    Summary

    Six months after Cuba, Charles and Erik find themselves thrown fifty years into the future, where they meet their older selves, the Avengers, and a world that's very different from their own. Faced with the pieces of their broken relationship, an unparalleled adversary, and dealing with Tony Stark on a daily basis, Charles and Erik do their best to adapt while trying to find a way back home -- and to each other.

    Summary

    Magneto finds himself in 1962, on the morning they go to Cuba, in the bed of the young Charles who'd spent months letting him think they were in love before breaking his heart. But he is not the same man he was forty years earlier, and as he gets to know young Charles again, he discovers that things might not have been exactly the way he remembered them after all.

    Summary

    From a kinkmeme prompt, this is a series of vignettes about Charles and Erik throughout the ages. Each chapter is written as a self-contained era. At the moment:

    0. Primordial Soup
    1. Prehistoric Mammals
    2. Cro-Magnons
    3. Iron Age
    4. Egypt
    5. Greece
    6. Rome
    7. Arthurian
    8. 1602
    9. Pirates
    10. Regency
    11. 1920s
    12. XMFC
    13. Wanted
    14. Theatre AU
    15. Androids

    There are 20 chapters, but this is where I’m at right now. It should be possible to skip chapters which contain elements that the reader doesn’t enjoy without affecting the whole; I’ll put a brief era summary and any rating and warning info as A/Ns on each chapter.

    Summary

    For the prompt in the kink_meme: "Charles keeps 'dying'. Well, at least in the comics he does. The amount of times he ends up nearly or actually dead in the arms of a desperate Erik is ridiculous. I´d love a crack-ish fic in which this has happened so many times that nobody cares anymore, and while the two of them are all like "It´s too late for me, Erik... Goodbye... Give humans a chance..." "NOOOO, I WON´T LET YOU DIE! D:", everybody else is catching up with people from the other team, playing games or feeling extremely bored."

    Logan didn’t much like Erik Lehnsherr when he first met him in a bar about a year ago. Logan likes him a lot less after he dumps Logan’s tranquilized carcass on Charles Xavier’s doorstep like a dog presenting its owner with a stunned rabbit.

    Summary

    Written for the following prompt: Erik is an aggressive, dangerous, cynical mutant, hardened from years of being passed through private laboratories and used for experimentation. He's covered in surgical scars from operations, tattooed and bar coded like a lab rat, and blind from an experiment done on his eyes. ... Charles Xavier finds out about him. Charles runs a sort of sanctuary for mutants that provides lost, abandoned, abused, runaway mutants with shelter, comfort, and help with ability control. He thinks he can rehabilitate Erik and save him from execution, and convinces the government that he can.

    When Erik arrives, he is a lot worse than Charles thought he would be ... Everyone else can see that Erik is a nuclear bomb waiting to go off, but Charles refuses to give up on him. ...

    The first time Charles sneaks up on him wearing no metal, it triggers him and he reacts instinctively, with violence. ... Erik discovers why Charles understands him so well: he was once used in experiments as well, experiments run by his own family, and in one of them, he lost his voice, so he uses his telepathy to communicate.

    Blind Erik, mute Charles, the love.

    "Well, obviously Erik isn't 'just anyone,'" Charles said dryly. "He's a valuable ally – somewhat unstable, admittedly, but it just means we need to work harder to keep him happy and keep him from kiting off on some insane, revenge-related activity."

    There is a greater enemy on the horizon.
    Erik does not walk away.

    For what is lost can be found, and there is a fine line between love and hate. An exploration of prejudice and politics.

    Very loosely based on the following prompt: tl;dr- an exploration of what being a gay telepath during the 60s would have been like.
