    Summary

    “Detective Lehnsherr, how wonderful to see you out on the job!” The fed in the front greets him as they draw nearer. He’s shorter than the other two by a full head, and he’s beaming at Lehnsherr as if completely undeterred by Lehnsherr’s paint-peeling scowl.

    “What do the feds want?” Lehnsherr asks bluntly.

    “You know I can’t tell you that,” the fed answers cheerfully. Then his gaze lands on Alex, and, impossibly, his grin gets even brighter. “Did you get a new partner?"

    “No,” Lehnsherr says through his teeth while at the same time Alex says, “Yes.”

    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.

    Summary

    On a Friday night that could have - and should have - been spent at the restaurant, Erik instead finds himself at the snacks table of an 18th birthday party, where he meets Charles Xavier and becomes tangled up in the erroneous reputation the kid tows around with him: that Xavier is a floozy, and can't hang onto a person for more than one evening. Under the incentive of promotion for his restaurant, Erik agrees to be Charles' partner to eradicate whatever nonsense his friends spout about him - only, like most things in Erik's life, it all goes completely belly up.

    Summary

    In a world where the population is barely holding steady, those of either gender who are capable of bearing children are considered a prized commodity. In all places beyond Westchester, their rights are few--and, with Erik Lehnsherr poised to tear down the gates of the city, even that last haven is on the brink of destruction. But, for Charles Xavier, the consequences of conquest may prove to be more personal than political. No one quite knows why Erik is so set on capturing his old friend and partner in the war against Shaw: Charles is no bearer, and he's disinclined to aid Erik in firmly establishing mutant supremacy once and for all.

    Charles, however, is all too aware of Erik's reasons. Erik knows things about him that no one else does--things which, if brought to light, would would mean surrendering far more than just a kingdom.
