    Summary

    "What are you doing with that?" Arthur asked, resisting the urge to slap Eames's hands away from the briefcase like a child with a favored toy. Eames was close enough that all he'd have to do would be to reach out a hand.

    "We're going to do some training exercises," Eames said in a cheerful tone that filed away at Arthur's teeth. As far as Arthur was concerned, there was a very short list of things to be cheerful about, and “training exercises” weren't on it.

    Eames might be an asshole, but the fact that they can't get out of Canada is all Arthur's fault.

    Summary

    The thing that a great many people don't understand about true love is that it doesn’t announce itself with fanfare, and it doesn't happen all at once. True love takes root in the crevices in a person’s being, a creeping thing that breaks two people apart and knits those pieces together again to make something stronger than the sum of its parts.

    Adventure, intrigue, pirates, mercenaries, attempted murder, unspeakable grief, happy endings. A Princess Bride AU.

    Summary

    Charles is a teacher at a very exclusive school. When armed men burst in on the trail of two children, of course he stands up to them and gets hurt. The children are Erik Lehnsherr's children (of course); a "prominent businessman" or, less politely, "mobster".

    Erik is grateful to Charles for saving his children's lives at the cost of his kneecap. So very grateful.

    Naturally he tries to reward Charles for his actions. Equally naturally, Charles will be having none of that.

    Azazel finds the whole thing unspeakably hilarious. Naturally.

    Summary

    Written for the following prompt: Erik dies, or finds a reversey-time mutant, or a magical time travelling device, and wakes up in the past. This time, though, it's before he ever met Charles - in fact, it's before his mother died.

     

    He can save his mother that one time (thanks to his mastery over powers carrying back), but what does Erik do after that? Does he stick around, or escape and run to find Charles again (and hope everything doesn't go wrong)?

     

    Sort of a bookend to my story "Undone," though they are totally independent stories.

    Summary

    Charles has a terrible habit of multitasking, and that is probably why he absentmindedly tells the pizza man that he loves him when hanging up.

    Then the pizza man says it back. And Charles is pretty much smitten from there.
