    Summary

    A mutant temporarily changes Charles's body, and Erik doesn't understand why Charles has taken a step back.

    Charles sighs; he's been oblique partly out of consideration to Erik's sensibilities, but apparently Erik is going to make him spell it out. "I know you don't like women," he says gently.

    Erik's expression doesn't change. "But you're not a woman."

    Summary

    A series of stories following Charles and Erik's new relationship throughout their senior year as they approach the imminent change of graduation.

    Chapter Two: "all points of the compass:" Erik discovers Charles likes boys and girls both and is once again forced to grapple with who he is, what he wants, and the creeping knowledge that maybe he's just as much of a freak and just as alone as he's always feared.
