  1. Summary

    Inspired by Victor Hugo’s Les Misérables. This is my attempt to see what would happen if an event similar to what happened to Jean Valjean near the beginning of that book happened to Erik Lehnsherr before he met Charles.

    “At the moment you least expect it, God placards a meteor on the wall of the firmament. Some strange star comes along, underlined by an enormous tail. And that makes Caesar die. Brutus strikes him with a knife, and God with a comet.”
    (Part IV, Book XII, Chapter II; translated by Charles E. Wilbour)

    Summary

    When Raven gets mixed up in a mutant cult, Charles infiltrates the group, pretending to be a true believer in the hopes of getting her out. What surprises him is the charisma and uncanny wisdom of the cult's leader, Elisha Ammon -- the emotional power of this isolated group of mutants working to create a home together -- and his powerful connection to Ammon's right-hand man, Erik Lehnsherr. But Ammon's fear of humanity, and of the future, makes him desperate for control ... and when the bond between Charles and Erik can't be contained, Ammon's reaction proves deadly.

    (The role of Elisha Ammon is being played by the very obliging Imaginary Benedict Cumberbatch.)

    Summary

    There is something surreal about being told, at seventeen, that you have cancer. Death is not a stranger to Stiles. He’s just not familiar with having his own life being the only one at stake.

    Summary

    So, you know how musicals are set in a world where people just burst into song every five minutes, and everyone around them automatically knows to join in with the tune and choreography? This fic is set in that world.

    John finds it extremely frustrating that Sherlock won't sing their theme song with him.

    Not Season 3-compliant.
     

    Thanks to Sapph, Earlgreytea68 and Passeriform for betaing/lyric help (any appalling bad lyrics remain my fault), and Ariane DeVere for her very useful episode transcripts.
