    Summary

    When they get to a point where they can just barely hear the thumping of the music over the chirping crickets, Billy’s serious expression cracks and he bursts out laughing like a drunken, deranged hyena. Steve can’t help but join in, and then they’re both giggling and stumbling around the forest like idiots. Steve bumps into him to snatch the bottle of whiskey from his fist and takes a burning swallow. It warms his blood too much in the balm of the edge-of-summer night and he drags the back of a hand over his mouth with a ragged sound before passing it back. Billy snickers at his expense and fishes a cigarette out of his pack.

    Summary

    Steve hates that sometimes when he talks to Billy every single word comes out wrong or too slow, like he’s learning a foreign language. He guesses he kind of is.

    It should be easy. It isn't, but it will be.

    Summary

    “I just thought it would have been nice. You keep saying you hate the cold, so.” Steve shrugs nonchalantly, in an attempt to conceal how much he would love to hide from the silence that follows. What’s dealing with Billy possibly rejecting his gesture compared to a Demogorgon’s sharp teeth? Scarier, by all accounts.

    Steve knew that what he just pulled out is pretty much a romantic textbook move the moment he started planning it, and he kept asking himself if he was losing his mind while gathering the pillows on the floor.

    Summary

    Steve takes a second to feel relieved he’s not Dustin getting all sorts of arrested in places he shouldn’t be, then he goes back to staring.

    Steve hasn’t seen Billy Hargrove since high school. Three years ago.

    The cop is staring at them, looking back and forth. “So uh,” the cop says, “Are you boys…good? If you’re still willing to vouch for him, then I’ll need you to sign for him, Mr. Harrington.”

    “Steve,” Steve corrects absently, at the same time Billy corrects, "Princess." The cop coughs awkwardly, and Steve walks up to the front, signs for Billy like he’s a package, or he guesses, in trouble with the law.

    Summary

    To his students, Erik Lehnsherr is despotic and terrifying. To his department head, he’s the brilliant young researcher who abandoned his prestigious job overnight, moving across the country to join MIT’s faculty. But to Charles Xavier, he is a contradiction. As Erik and Charles settle into their new roles as colleagues, their professional rivalry starts to spill over into the personal.

    Summary

    When Charles Xavier moves to London and buys a house with his boyfriend Warren, he thinks his life is finally coming together in a way that everyone, including himself, has always expected. Erik Lehnsherr, on the other hand, is struggling to keep his life together after his recent divorce, now having to raise his three-year-old by himself. Neither is prepared to meet at work or, in fact, ever again: they have met before, now nearly ten years ago, when they conducted a passionate love affair that was over before it even began. Yet their attraction is still undeniable, and as Erik asks Charles out for a drink, Charles somehow forgets to mention that he's already seeing someone.

    Summary

    AU, no powers, based on McAvoy's performance as Martin in Murder In Mind.
    Unable to sleep one night Erik takes a midnight walk in the local park. He finds himself being followed and propositioned by a rent boy named Charles, and begins to fall rather rapidly for his charms. Charles however has never known what love is, and doesn't recognise it even when it's staring at him in the face. As for Erik, he doesn't realise a creeping illness is slowly affecting Charles, and his dark past is something he couldn't have imagined.

    Summary

    Charles is close to his roommate Erik, and everything's swell. They have movie nights and huddle together in the cold weather, and he never demands what he doesn't need from Erik.

    He probably should, but that's risky.
