    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 One: "Uncharted Territory:" Charles tries to plan a special birthday weekend for Erik, fueled by his growing awareness that their time together is limited.

    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.

    Summary

    It's been a long time since Charles and Raven were able to sit down and really talk to each other, but the awkwardness of the occasion is lessened by a lot of red wine and comparing notes on something they have in common - namely, what Erik was like in bed.

    Summary

    "I hope you're ready to fly, Hank," Charles says, spitting out the words like they taste bitter. "We're going home."

    "What?" Hank says, blinking. "Don't we - shouldn't we do something?"

    "Like what?" Charles retorts, and Hank doesn't have any answer.
